200 Kidnapping Gangs Operating in Juarez

JUAREZ – The Chief Prosecutor said these groups commit 4-5 kidnappings a week, with ransoms between $5,000 and $100, 000. The gangs are not necessarily linked to organized crime. Carlos Manuel Salas, the Attorney General for the northern zone is seeking to lower the high levels of crime by recruiting 1, 000 police and 300 prosecutors. He explained that by making the three parts of government more efficient, kidnapping can be combated. He said they intend to follow the example of the Tijuana Police as a successful model of best practices. He said it will be April 2011 before results begin to show (photo relates).

Gangs are Schools for Crime

GUADALAJARA – Belonging to one of the hundreds of gangs in Guadalajara is an open door for organized crime. The young people use and sell drugs such as marijuana and cocaine, commit robbery and move up to kidnappings and assassinations. The absence of the opportunity to stay in school along with the disintegration of the family are raising the esteem of being a gang member, according to a member of a Guadalajara gang. The story goes on to tell of one 15 year gang member, now 30 years old who became a father, and is trying to pull the gangs into soccer tournaments as an alternative to the gang.
