    Short version: stay out of TJ, unless you're going with 500 of your best friends and Close Air Support.
    Official documents that were sent anonymously to ZETA, carry accounts of confessions given by corrupt Municipal Police. Dishonest, confessing to serving cells of criminal organizations, addicted to drugs and or alcoholism , having problems with depression and authority. Others have been narco-traffickers, or have criminal records ( antecedents ) in the USA, whilst others move and dispose of bodies for criminals. The cases are from the commission for police improvement in Tijuana, the secretary Alejandro Lares Valladares, but there are no results, the majority of these police men are still working for the corporation.

    The sins confessed by Municipal police agents in Tijuana , merited a procedure to dismiss them from the Police, but most of the 154 agents that failed the examinations of evaluation and confidence are still working to “ serve “ the public.

    Guadalajara (Mexico) (AFP) - Fifteen police officers were killed in a gang ambush in western Mexico, an official said, marking the deadliest day in recent years for security forces battling the drug war.

    Five more officers were wounded in Monday's assault, which took place on a twisting rural highway near the village of Soyatan as a convoy carrying the elite state police unit headed to Guadalajara, Mexico's second biggest city.

    ISIS is operating a camp just a few miles from El Paso, Texas, according to Judicial Watch sources that include a Mexican Army field grade officer and a Mexican Federal Police Inspector.

    The exact location where the terrorist group has established its base is around eight miles from the U.S. border in an area known as “Anapra” situated just west of Ciudad Juárez in the Mexican state of Chihuahua. Another ISIS cell to the west of Ciudad Juárez, in Puerto Palomas, targets the New Mexico towns of Columbus and Deming for easy access to the United States, the same knowledgeable sources confirm.

    CIUDAD JUREZ, Mexico, April 20 (UPI) -- A Judicial Watch report claiming the Islamic State established a terror cell near Ciudad Jurez, Mexico, is being denied by officials and condemned by residents.

    The report by the conservative organization used unnamed "sources that include a Mexican Army field grade officer and a Mexican Federal Police Inspector."

    The U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the U.S. Northern Command and the Texas Department of Public Safety have all denied the report's claims.

    Six Somali-American men from Minneapolis were arrested Sunday and charged Monday with conspiracy to support terrorism in the largest Minnesota operation and one of the biggest nationally to result from an eight-year federal investigation into terrorist recruiting in the United States.

    Two of the six were arrested by FBI agents in San Diego, where they were planning to pick up passports and then cross into Mexico, where they planned to board a flight to the Middle East, federal authorities said Monday.

    The other four were arrested by the FBI in Minneapolis.

    Mounting brazen attacks, New Generation cartel arises from Mexico's assault on big drug lords

    MEXICO CITY — It has the drugs and distribution system of a traditional cartel — and it has the modern weapons and audacity of an army. After attacking federal forces, downing a military helicopter and shutting down streets in Mexico's second-largest city last week, the New Generation Jalisco cartel is now the main enemy in the country's fight with drug cartels.

    In just a few years, New Generation has grown from being an offshoot of the powerful Sinaloa cartel to one of Mexico's strongest criminal groups in its own right, according to the U.S. Treasury Department, whose Office of Foreign Assets Control maintains a "black list" of drug trafficking organizations.

    MEXICO CITY — A shootout between members of a powerful drug cartel and Mexican security forces in the western state of Michoacan left at least 40 people dead Friday, according to Mexican officials.

    The violence unfolded in the morning near the town of Tanhuato, along Michoacan’s border with the state of Jalisco, a troubled region where two drug cartels have waged a long-running battle and where attacks against Mexican authorities have recently spiked.

    Mexican authorities offered few details Friday afternoon about the killings, which involved the New Generation cartel of Jalisco and a convoy of federal police and soldiers. The governor of Michoacan, Salvador Jara, said on a radio address that at least one policeman died, as well as 42 gunmen, although those numbers were not confirmed. Photographs from the scene showed authorities had recovered dozens of high-powered rifles.*

    MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - A clash between armed vigilante groups just north of the resort city of Acapulco killed 13 people on Saturday, according to Mexico's human rights commission.

    The violence came on the eve of Mexico's midterm election, in which President Enrique Pena Nieto faces growing discontent over lawlessness, corruption, and lackluster economic growth.
    One of the two vigilante gangs involved in Saturday's battle is believed to have connections to the Jalisco New Generation cartel, a methamphetamine trafficking group that the government accuses of posing a major threat to public safety.

    Default Chapo Escapes!

    Yippee! Maybe he will go down to Bolivia and rob banks like Butch & Sundance. At least his after-escape plans proved better than the two clowns who escaped from that New York prison. So did I hear this right? The guy had a motorcycle down in the tunnel that he rode out? Is that legendary or what? This has got McQueen written all over it!

    Why would the world's biggest consumer of illegal narcotics (the USA) be so pissed off at Chapo's escape? I mean the guy is bringing goods to market for us voracious Gringos. We should be celebrating! Who gets the movie rights?

    There is a short SWJ article:http://smallwarsjournal.com/jrnl/art...y-prison-for-t

    Personally I think $$ talked and one suspects those who detained him (Mexican Marines & DEA from memory) will not be impressed.

    The Staggering Death Toll of Mexico’s Drug War

    Last week, the Mexican government released new data showing that between 2007 and 2014 — a period that accounts for some of the bloodiest years of the nation’s war against the drug cartels — more than 164,000 people were victims of homicide. Nearly 20,000 died last year alone, a substantial number, but still a decrease from the 27,000 killed at the peak of fighting in 2011.

    Over the same seven-year period, slightly more than 103,000 died in Afghanistan and Iraq, according to data from the United Nations and the website Iraq Body Count.
    Sort of puts it in perspective.

    Four people died in a shootout between marines and gunmen that started during an attempt to rescue a kidnapped businessman in Sinaloa, a state in northwestern Mexico, state prosecutors told EFE.

    The shootout occurred on Monday at a motel outside the city of Guamuchil when marines tried to rescue kidnapping victim Carlos Humberto Barroso Cecea.

    The businessman, who worked in sales and marketing, was one of the four people who died in the shootout.
    Authorities seized two SUVs belonging to the gunmen.
