**Asterisk denotes death involving a police officer or a member of the military serving in that capacity. Some items are from notirex.com, a related blog.
CIUDAD JUAREZ, CHIHUAHUA
Whereas in most place, news on New Year’s Day will announce the first baby born. South of the border, the report headline is that the first execution of 2012 was a man of 60 years. He was run down intentionally, and then was also shot and killed.
MONTERREY, NUEVO LEÓN
And continuing in the same vein, the report from Monterrey announces the first execution of 2012 is a 23 year old man found handcuffed with signs of torture. His body was dumped in the street with a narco message saying “Happy New Year 2012 Nuevo León”.
The criminal group “Los Zetas” is the leader in over half of the country in drug trafficking, extortion, human trafficking and theft of fuel. Four years ago, the Sinaloa cartel dominated 23 states but now is in only 16. The Zetas maintain a presence in Sonora, Chihuahua, Durango, Coahuila, Nuevo Leon, Zacatecas, Aguascalientes, San Luis Potosi, Hidalgo, Veracruz, Tamaulipas, Mexico City, Oaxaca, Tabasco, Chiapas, Yucatan and Quintana Roo.
Monday January 2, the military was conducting traffic check at 340pm, when 2 gunmen exited a vehicle stuck in traffic and opened fire. The gunfight continued along several streets, leaving a state police officer and a gunman dead, two municipal officers wounded, and the arrest of the other gunman.
SAN IGNACIO, SINALOA*
A shooting on New Years was recorded here, about 100km (62 mi) north of Mazatlan. It left 3 dead, and a man and child wounded. The municipality is on top of a mountain, about 3 hours travel from the municipal seat. The people were celebrating when gunmen opened fire. Last week, a municipal police patrol was ambushed, killing one officer and wounding the other two. The Mayor has been asking the Governor to reinforce the police.
Surge in Violence in Mexico a “National Emergency”
(As the violence continues unabated and spreads, the state of anarchy there will pose an ever increasing threat to the U.S., and not just limited to the immediate border areas. Wise Americans will closely monitor events as they occur to the south of our nation.)
