House arrest denied for "El Padrino" (El Jefe de Jefes)...

A federal court denied amparo to Miguel Ángel Félix Gallardo, who was the leader of the Guadalajara cartel, to serve his sentence of 37 years in prison at his home

The Second Collegiate Court in Criminal Matters of Mexico City denied an amparo  of federal justice to Miguel Ángel Félix Gallardo, who was the leader of the Guadalajara cartel, to serve his sentence of 37 years in prison at his home, and will continue interned in the maximum security prison of Puente Grande, Jalisco.

The federal magistrates explained that the granting of the domiciliary prison, by age, constitutes a facultative power of the Judicial Power, depending on each case and is not a right of the person.

"Although due to his age he has a deterioration in his health, the suffering he presents does not show an unnecessary notoriety that he will comply with the sentence imposed".

In his lawsuit, Felix Gallardo argued that he is over 70 years old and his health condition is precarious, so he could reach the benefit of house arrest and in case of not granting it, a case of discrimination would be incurred.

The capo known as "The Boss of Bosses", was convicted for participating in 1985 in the murder of the agent of the Drug Control Administration (DEA), Enrique Camarena Salazar and the Mexican pilot Alfredo Zavala Avelar.

CDMX/Iztapalapa: Targeted Attack Leaves Seven People Dead...

Oaxaqueño for Borderland Beat from Animal Political images from Sol 

On Sunday morning at around 03:45 hrs, seven people were shot dead while four others were wounded (two of them seriously and two others minorly). The armed attack occurred in Iztapalapa’s Los Reyes Culhuacán colonia, at the corner of the streets Benito Juárez and Cuitláhuac, situated about ten kilometers southeast of Mexico City’s Zócalo. Most reports indicate that the attackers, said to be up to ten people (reportedly at least three people), were travelling in two vehicles and immediately opened fire upon arrival. The victims, who were gathering next to vehicles and drinking alcohol at the time of the assault, were shot at more than 20 times with three different caliber weapons. Out of the deceased victims, six (five men and one woman) died on the spot, including local neighbors identified as one 18-years-old and two 24-years-old men, while the seventh’ victim, a 25-years-old woman, later succumbed to her wounds.

Oaxaqueño Analysis:

Please note that meanwhile, there are plenty of local reports regarding this incident available. However, some of them contradict each other, so I tried to sum things up as good and reasonable as I could. Initially, neither the attackers’ affiliation nor their motive was known, although surveillance cameras captured the armed assault. However, the latest reports suggest that the target of the attack was Manuel Rubio Hernández, known as “El Mene”, who was supposedly a well-known local drug dealer. He, alongside with his girlfriend who accompanied him, is among the victims. 

All the other people who were present at the time of the attack were, according to an El Universal report, just collateral victims and therefore not targeted in the first place. Reportedly, they were only there to drink alcohol with the purported prime target of the attack. However, besides this statement, the El Universal report did not reveal in what exact relation the other victims and “El Mene” stood to each other. In contrast, other reports indicate that “El Mene” and his girlfriend, who were driving a Volkswagen Gol taxi, were pursued by their killers and arrived at the crime scene just moments before they were shot dead. These reports suggest that they stopped the taxi they were riding at the gathering, rashly disembarked and tried to run away but were caught up and shot dead, alongside with the people who have gathered there to drink.

Letting aside the exact circumstances of the crime, the perpetrators’ affiliation has meanwhile been found out and confirmed by solid evidence (following the examination of the weaponry and vehicles used in the assault). The perpetrators belong to a criminal group called Los Molina, headed by the brothers Juan Carlos and Noé Molina Plascencia, 29 and 30 years of age, respectively. Reportedly, they were actively involved in this assault. The target of the attack, “El Mene”, was working for a criminal group named Los Panchos. Having said that, “El Mene” was originally affiliated to Los Molina but switched side to their rivals in August 2018. In addition to that, he allegedly owed hundred thousand Pesos to Los Molina for drugs which he did not pay up for sufficiently. Presumably, this has caused Sunday’s attack.

Both groups, Los Molina and Los Panchos, are working under the umbrella of larger criminal organizations. While Los Molina maintains an alliance with Los Pitufos, Los Panchos is linked to Los Rodolfos, also known as Cartel de Los Rodolfos.

The origins and interconnections between these criminal actors will be covered in the course of my upcoming articles about CDMX. Considering the significant recent uptick of violence in southern CDMX, further such major targeted assaults as well as tit-for-that killings in Itzapalapa and the adjacent boroughs can be expected in the upcoming days and weeks.

Throw Away Borderland Beat translated from Vanguardia

On social networks videos circulated showing the agent taken by force by armed men.

The sub inspector of the Federal Police, Gabriel Pulido Noguera, was kidnapped over the weekend on a highway in the state of Veracruz.

Although the authorities of the Cuitláhuac García Jiménez Morenista government have not spoken about the incident, videos appeared on social networks where the agent is taken by force by armed men.

The police reports indicate that the events occurred on the Acultzingo-Ciudad Mendoza highway, in the central mountainous area of Veracruz.

On the footage, captured in the own vehicle of the federal agent, it is shown that two vehicles block his path, his armed attackers grab him and take him to an unknown destination.

From Sol Prendido:

In one of the videos you can see how the police stops the procession suddenly. After seeing a subject pointing a gun at him, he raised his hands in surrender. Immediately, at least three subjects opened the door of the unit and the following dialogue was heard:


Gabriel: NO.


After removing the police from the vehicle, another subject entered, who wore a black jacket and cap, as well as dark glasses. After starting to drive the vehicle, he covered his mouth and nose with the collar of his jacket.

 The other video reproduces the same situation, but pointing towards the front of the vehicle, which thankfully it was possible to identify the van model that stopped the police unit.

Journalist Reynaldo López was killed by armed men while driving his car in the city of Hermosillo, Sonora, in northern Mexico. Lopez was traveling with reporter Carlos Cota, who was also injured. The authorities ruled out that the incident is related to the journalistic activity of the victims. Authorities are actually saying it was probably related to illegal activities by “someone close” to the two men.

 Presidential spokesman Jesús Ramírez also lamented the attacks, saying “all aggression against the freedom of speech constitutes a condemnable act.  We anxiously await action from the corresponding authorities to investigate these acts.”

Cota was a popular sports reporter for Televisa Sonora for many years.

Reynaldo López is the third journalist to be murdered in Mexico this year, following the killing of radio host Jesús Ramos Rodríguez in Tabasco a little over a week ago and the assassination of community radio director Rafael Murúa in Baja California in January.

Cuernavaca: Car Thief Dismembered

Sol Prendido Borderland Beat

The brutal murder of a young man in Morelos was recorded and disseminated through social networks; his corpse was scattered in several streets of the entity. Last Friday, February 8, at around 11:00 p.m., a human trunk without limbs was located in Paso Exprés in the direction of Vicente Guerrero Avenue, in the Maravillas neighborhood, Cuernavaca.

On the morning of Saturday, a human head was placed next to the genitals in the Tabachin Street of the Bella Vista neighborhood, a few blocks from the State Attorney General's Office (FGE), where cardboard was found with the following message:

"Commissioner, given that your team has not worked and, on the contrary, they only receive money from all the criminal groups, here we give you the clue of some of the groups that are extorting money and stealing cars in the city."

The human remains were picked up and sent to the Forensic Medical Service (Semefo), where the victim remained as a stranger; however, on Monday the body was identified by his relatives as José Rodolfo Bellucci Botello, nineteen years of age.

Rodolfo Bellucci, originally from Iguala, began his criminal activity when he was only fifteen years old, along with his high school classmates, with whom he assaulted businesses, robbing homes and mainly stealing vehicles.

The afternoon of Monday, through social networks began to circulate a video [ warning if you use the link--the video is as gruesome as it gets] in which an armed group interrogates the young man, who visibly beaten confesses to belong to a criminal group that operates in that state supported by police officers.

In another recording two men appear inside a bathroom, where it is seen that they cut the head and limbs of the corpse of the victim.

As if the images were not violent enough, the individuals end the video warning that this will happen to all the local extortionists.
