Mexican States Urged to Strengthen Police Forces

(Tlaxcala)  The interior minister, Francisco Blake Mora, asked the state governments to strengthen their police agencies in order to more reliably fight organized crime (cartels).  Interviewed during the swearing in of the new governor of Tlaxcala, he said it is also important to improve the state prosecutor’s office as well as anti-kidnapping units and to continue with current crime prevention programs.  He briefly explained that there needs to be more citizen participation, but that only with the three levels of government working together will peace be restored in Mexico.  Use of the Mexican Army and the Marines is subsidiary to handle crime, hence the need to strengthen the police agencies.

Narcobanner Appears in Zacatecas

On Friday, January 14, a narcobanner was found in Jalpa, Zacatecas. This was after an earlier shooting there.  On a white blanket, in black and red, was a message asking the public for an opportunity to restore peace and claiming to not be from the Zetas.  The message is: ‘Communicated to all citizens:   Do not confuse us with Zetas, we do not kill children, families, and innocent people, we charge no fees, or kidnapped, much less come to fight with the Government, we come to give back to the state peace and tranquility. Give us the opportunity to show that we care for the citizens, we come for Los Zetas , not innocent people. We’re in all the State … Enough injustice.’
