El Debate (Culiacan, Sinaloa) 10-11-10
Culiacan, Sinaloa – The State Attorney General’s Office has announced that policemen have lost their lives in a confrontation with an armed group in Angostura. Six state Policemen and two Municipal Officers were killed and yet another Municipal Policeman was wounded.
Members of the State Preventive Police were on routine patrol on the Benito Juarez Highway when they came under gunfire. According to first reports, the police returned fire as a state helicopter searched for the gunmen. Members of the Federal Highway Patrol, firemen, Municipal Police and personnel from the Red Cross ambulances responded to the area.
The government buys broken firearms
Culiacan – For eight years the government has bought arms voluntarily turned in by citizens under a program called “Exitosa,” (“Successful”), but in reality, it isn’t working.
Information from the Secretary of Defense (SEDENA) bares the naked truth about the Voluntary Donation and Registration of Firearms Campaign of Sinaloa.
Supposedly, the campaign is to prevent firearms accidents in Sinaloan homes and to reduce firearms in the civilian population.
The truth is that the program run by the State Public Security Agency and SEDENA has served to remove firearms from private homes, but those arms are broken and useless. Of the arms turned in since the program began in 2003, (and cost up to 2,500 Pesos each), 6,767 have turned out to be inoperable or useless as classified by military personnel.
The government has spent more than 13 million Pesos over the last 8 years to decommission weapons under this program.

More attention to the repatriated from Arizona
Nogales – State and municipal agencies on the border have increased their attention to the repatriated from Arizona, according to the Director of Attention to International Migrants, Evaristo Mendoza Paredes.
“Nogales is the city that receives more than 35% of those deported into the State of Sonora,” said the official, “This means that we must employ a different strategy than that imposed in other border cities in Sonora that receive fewer deportees.”
According to the National Institute of Migration (INM), there are also deportations into the border cities of Agua Prieta, Naco, Sonoyta and San Luis Rio Colorado.
Mendoza said that border cities must increase their aid to deportees from the United States.
