This morning's news is that the authorities have captured 5 people responsible for setting fire to the casino and that they have confessed. They are members of Los Zetas. They have a security video of the same car involved in the attack at a gas station filling cans of gasoline.

It does not matter because the line of subhumans waiting to join the zeta's is long and there are many to take the place of the killed and captured. What the fuck else are they going to do down there, start a taco stand or open a car wash. Mexico is lost..Next.
Mexican authorities put out an order for Raúl Rocha Cantú, the owner of the Casino Royale which burned, to appear for questioning. Instead he fled the country. Mexico is seeking international help to find him.

Mexican casino massacre may be rooted in corruption

MONTERREY, Mexico — When an arson attack killed 52 people at a casino here last week, Mexican President Felipe Calderon called it the work of “true terrorists” and said U.S. drug users and gun dealers were partly responsible for Mexico’s violence.

Calderon cast the attack as a galvanizing moment in his administration’s battle against the cartels, characterizing the tragedy as a steep escalation of the conflict between security forces and gangsters who increasingly target civilians.

But a video and series of photographs showing the brother of Monterrey’s mayor receiving bundles of cash at a casino days before the massacre suggest its origins might lie in the old, familiar networks of corruption that have long plagued the country and nurtured the rise of organized crime.

It is not immediately clear what the payments were for, or whether they were illegal. Nor is it clear if there is any relationship between the payments taken by the mayor’s brother and the firebombing on Thursday of the Casino Royale.

Mobbed by reporters, Monterrey Mayor Fernando Larrazabal — a member of Calderon’s PAN political party — did not deny that it was his brother taking cash in the tapes, and he had no explanation for why he appeared in the casino surveillance footage. His brother’s whereabouts are unknown.

I didn't know there was quite that much corruption.

Manuel Jonás Larrazabal, the brother of Monterrey's mayor, denied through his lawyer that he was doing anything illegal in the Casino Royale when he was videotaped being given wads of cash in boxes. He said he was being slandered and libeled, and that he was merely a bettor at the casino.

However this videotape show Larrazabal (wearing the light blue shirt) waiting at a game table that is not in use for several minutes. Then somebody comes out with a cellphone box and opens it and shows him a wad of cash, which Larrazabal takes with him. Sure is a strange way to payoff a bet.

It is because Mexico is so filthy with corruption, that President Felipe Calderon cannot win his war. He's shooting these kids with AK-47's who are meaningless in the grand scheme of things, meanwhile the elite of the country are more crooked than a dog's hind leg.

Mexico detains state cop in deadly casino arson

MONTERREY, Mexico (AP) — Federal police arrested a state police officer in connection with last week's arson fire at a casino that killed 52 people in northern Mexico.

The state police agent was caught in a surveillance video inside an SUV outside Casino Royale, presumably connected to the attack, said Assistant Attorney General Jose Cuitlahuac Salinas.

The agent is in custody of federal investigators, Salinas told a news conference late Thursday.

Five alleged members of the Zetas drug cartel were arrested Sunday in connection with last week's fire in Monterrey, called one of the worst attacks in Mexico's five-year drug war. Police have said at least 12 people were involved.

Agents are investigating whether the attack was in retaliation for not paying extortion money.

Gunmen last week ignited gasoline at the entrance to the Casino Royale. Terrified customers and employees ran deep inside the building. Many were found dead from smoke inhalation in offices and bathrooms.

Also Thursday, the brother of Monterrey Mayor Fernando Larrazabal was detained for questioning as part of a corruption investigation launched after he was seen taking wads of cash inside an unidentified casino just days before last week's deadly arson attack.

The daily newspaper Reforma, which published the images of Jonas Larrazabal on Wednesday, estimated one wad of cash, stuffed inside a cell phone box, was 400,000 pesos ($32,000).

Jonas Larrazabal's lawyer, Jesus Martinez, told Milenio TV that his client goes to casinos for fun, like any customer, but also sells them cheese, mezcal and other products from the southern state of Oaxaca. He said he has asked his client to provide documents to prove the sales so he can give them to authorities.
