The latest violent events against Rosarito citizens, based upon the level of violence the criminals are using to murder their victims and and impunity in committing those murders in broad daylight in heavily transited areas, are viewed as a challenge to police authority.

Some Rosarito residents have conjectured that these latest crimes — the Popotla leader, the director of the taxi guild in Primo Tapia and his companion in broad daylight and in front of the state and municipal government buildings, as well as the rage and spectacle of decapitating and dismembering a body and tossing the remains in central locations emblematic of Rosarito — represent a challenge by organized crime against the adviser on public safety for Rosarito, Julián Leyzaola, and the new police chief Lt. Adrián Hernández Pérez.

In spite of the last changes made by Mayor Mirna Rincón Vargas of the commanders, they bemoan the fact that the murders, far from decreasing, have been increasing. This has brought the attention of the news media and citizens for the manner in which these crimes are being committed.

On the other hand, citizens are questioning the work by the state Attorney General to solve murders in general, but above all the murders of those people who have left their mark on the community for their work. This is in reference to Daney Angulo Sánchez, Liciano Rivera Delgado, Luis Sánchez Cabral and Victor Loza Bazán, among others.
