Same Bridge, Another Day

A few days back, Fulano posted an ironic photo of a bridge between Puerto Vallarta and Mazatlan where bodies were left hanging two days in a row.

Well guess what? Yesterday two more men were hung from the very same bridge. The assassins had so much time, that witnesses said they hung the men, then shot them up with AK-47’s before casually driving off.

Meanwhile, about 200 miles south of this bridge, near the town of Chilpancigo in the state of Guerrero, authorities found two men with the skin pulled off their heads lying on the highway.

…and to round out the reporting, here is a video of Ron Raposa, who was a publicist for the Rosarito Hotel and the city of Rosarito discussing the biased reporting in the US that is really hurting Mexico. You see, according to Raposa, it is all “perception.” By the way, none of the events described in this blog entry are reported in any US news media.


US Police Draw Gunfire From Mexico

American law enforcement officers were fired on from Mexico early Thursday as a Texas Rangers-led operation tried to capture a load of smuggled narcotics on the Rio Grande, officials said. 

The McAllen Monitor newspaper reported the incident took place in Mission, Texas. 

The Texas Department of Public Safety said in a statement obtained by NBC News that at least three suspected drug runners were wounded in the exchange of gunfire. 

Officials said a suspicious vehicle on the U.S. side of the Rio Grande was observed along with two cartel drug recovery boats. Three law-enforcement patrol boats arrived on the scene and received heavy gunfire from the Mexico side while attempting to interdict the drug-laden boats, they said. 

Several U.S. agencies were involved. 

Mexican authorities were notified of the abandoned cartel drug-laden boats and were on the scene, authorities said.
