Let's start with Trump first. Did you catch the headlines on CNN this morning ?

~ From CNN:

'Very Substantial Evidence' Trump Is 'Guilty of High Crimes and Misdemeanors,' House Judiciary Says
By, Kate Sullivan - 07/21/19 


Of course he is guilty, but will he weasel his way out of it as he has done a million times before? Of course he will. Meanwhile, the absolute assault on Trump and his policies continues at a high clip...who knows for sure - maybe Melania will be air lifted out of the White House in a straight jacket after all !!! But sorry, I don't have my fingers crossed.

 The Stats Revisited.....

The last blog,  I posted that Zeta had reported June of this year ended with 217 executions in Tijuana.
Then ,Zeta's  July 17th report stating 132 executed  in Tijuana  so far this month of July bringing the YTD total to 1,231 dead in the city. 

Since the 07/17 report, I have counted 17 more executed in the city, including the three heads and torsos and the Municipal Police officer killed this morning

But according to the Secretariado Ejecutivo del Systema Nacional de Seguridad Publica, June actually ended with 272 executed in Tijuana, a number which far surpasses the PGJE numbers by 55. The point is, it's a lot worse than most of us might have realized with additional executions in Ensenada, and a Ministerial Agent killed in Tecate in the past few days. And, you might be wondering, how many more months from this year alone were we given lower numbers of executions/intentional homicides in an effort just to keep the lid on so to speak? Particularly for the sake of tourism and real estate sales ?

"In 18 of the 32 entities of the country there was an increase in the number of victims of murders, while in 14 states there was a detriment in the homicides, during the first semester of 2019, according to figures from the Map of Criminal Incidence in June , released by the Executive Secretariat of the National Public Security System (SESNSP).
 
During June, the entities that accumulated the highest number of victims of intentional homicide were Baja California, with 272; Guanajuato, with 248; Chihuahua, with 243; State of Mexico, with 228; Jalisco, with 226; Michoacán, with 175; Guerrero, with 171; Sonora, with 164; Veracruz, with 149, and Mexico City, with 143.
 
On the contrary, the entities that last month had less victims were Yucatán and Baja California Sur, with 2 each; Campeche, with 5; Durango and Aguascalientes, with 8 each, and Querétaro, with 11.
The national monthly average went from 2 thousand 714 victims of intentional homicide during the first semester of last year, to 2 thousand 856 of this, a difference of 142.

 If the trend continues, 2019 will close with more than 34 thousand 200 victims and will displace to 2018 as the most violent year in the modern history of Mexico.
 
Regarding the number of victims of crimes of the common law between January and June, in the 32 entities of the country 17 thousand 138 victims of manslaughter were registered, an increase of 5.21 percent compared to the number of murders that were recorded in the same last year's period, when in total there were 16,288 victims.
 
Of the more than 17 thousand victims of manslaughter recorded during the first six months of this year, in about 71.3 percent of the cases (12 thousand 215 people) were attacked with a firearm. From January to June 2018, of the more than 16,200 murder victims, 11,460 died from a firearm, the equivalent of 70.35 percent of the total.
 
From January to June of 2019 there were 1 million 4 thousand 191 alleged crimes in the Mexican Republic, and only in June throughout the country the figure reached 170 thousand 738, according to the same data of the agency dependent on the Ministry of the Interior (Segob ) of the Federal Government, headed by Andrés Manuel López Obrador.

UPDATE/EDIT - 07/23/19: 

But hold on a minute, AMLO downplays the violence in Baja California. Well, if you feel comfortable camping out with your family in San Quintin, or any points north or south of that, by all means just go for it, because the new mantra now is that the violence is only in Tijuana.  When you're down that a way, keep in mind the entire area is the main drug route, and everyone wants to control it.

 ~ From Zeta:

En Tijuana Se "Concentra" Problema De Inseguridad Y Violencia, No En Todp BC, Afirma AMLO
Por, Carlos Alvarez - 07/23/2019


"President Andrés Manuel López Obrador acknowledged Tuesday, that in Tijuana the problem is "insecurity and violence," but that this is not a matter of all of Baja California.
 
"Indeed, in Tijuana, which is not all of Baja California, the problem is insecurity and violence we have more concentrated in Tijuana," said the president during his morning conference at the National Palace.
 
"On Monday, 68 homicides were registered in the country, so the average daily figure dropped," said the Tabasco politician, who added that there are 10 entities that "alter the average number of homicides."
 
The national president said that in Guanajuato, Baja California, the State of Mexico and Veracruz, the crime of manslaughter has decreased.
 
He added that after the rebound in insecurity in Tijuana, his Government is already counteracting him and is studying the deployment of more federal forces in the border city to try to reduce the number of homicides committed on the northern border.
 
The federal president said that the work of the three levels of government is also reflected in the reduction of other crimes, such as car theft, which, according to the report given by the Security Cabinet, has suffered a notable decrease.
 
"Just as we have not been able to reduce the incidence of homicides, we have significantly reduced vehicle theft," López Obrador added in his morning conference.
 
Yesterday, ZETA informed that in 18 of the 32 entities of the country there was an increase in the number of victims of murders, while in 14 states there was a detriment in homicides, during the first half of 2019, as reflected in the Map figures of Criminal Incidence of June, announced by the Executive Secretariat of the National Public Security System (SESNSP).
 
During June, the entities that accumulated the highest number of victims of manslaughter were Baja California, with 272; Guanajuato, with 248; Chihuahua, with 243; State of Mexico, with 228; Jalisco, with 226; Michoacán, with 175; Guerrero, with 171; Sonora, with 164; Veracruz, with 149, and Mexico City, with 143.
 
The national monthly average went from 2,714 victims of manslaughter during the first half of last year, to 2 thousand 856 of this, a difference of 142. If the trend continues, 2019 will close with more than 34 thousand 200 victims and displace to 2018 as the most violent year in the modern history of Mexico."

Kind of reminds me of "Jaws." But doesn't it leave you wondering what kind of a deal was made down in BCS, and who exactly made it.  Perhaps the same thing will happen up here, although no one will ever get rid of the dope, it's a billion dollar enterprise here to stay.

Strange Brew



Zeta reported during the first six days of February there were 45 executions in Tijuana and brings us up to date on the totals from the other Municipalities:

Zeta Investigaciones - 02/11/19

Operativo Permanete

(Also includes the objectives of the Military Deployment in Baja California and the Narcomanta threats made against AMLO last week. An update: two arrests have been made, one of a Central American hanging the threats, and now of a CAF cell leader.  Initially it was thought the CAF had distanced themselves from the threats.)


"According to statistics from the Attorney General's Office of the State, until the end of this edition - Thursday 7- February, there are 44 violent deaths in Tijuana, followed by Ensenada (20), Mexicali (8) and Playas de Rosarito (9)." The Ensenada numbers cover the attack and shoot out in front of the Lucerne Hotel in El Sauzal, Ensenada - that link includes video.

Since then from Zeta's Daily Reports I have counted 17 more and 3 injured by gunfire in Tijuana,  three more in Rosarito from the Carmen Gutierrez reports (note Plaza Del Mar and area seems to be a favorite dumping ground these days), and one more in Mexicali.

Will the recently deployed 1,800 Mexican Army troops (plus 600 more on their way) working together with the Federal Police, the State Police (PEPOs) and the Municipal Police manage to curtail the violence?  Differing opinions prevail:

 - From Frontera.info:

Destacan 2 Municipios de BC Por Homicidios
Por, Alejandro Villa
02/08/19 

Pasted:

"Baja California has two municipalities that are in the top ten of the sites where more homicides are committed per 100 thousand inhabitants, which makes it one of the most violent states in the country, according to the Citizen Council for Public Safety and the Criminal Justice

In its annual report "Violence in Municipalities of Mexico," the agency lists the most insecure entities in Mexico and places Baja California, Guerrero, Oaxaca and Zacatecas first and at the same level.

The foregoing, the study details, because in the five municipalities of this state the level of violence is higher than the national level.

In the case of Tijuana, it appears as the second most violent municipality in 2018 of 234 cities that exceed the national average of violence per 100 thousand inhabitants.

In this study, released by the president of the Citizen Council, José Antonio Ortega, it is noted that Tijuana was outnumbered in the incidence of intentional homicides by Tecomán, Colima, in 2018.

While Rosarito was located in the sixth position, surpassed by the municipalities of Acapulco, Guerrero, Salamanca and Salvatierra, Guanajuato, and Manzanillo, Colima.

The violations

 
In relation to other crimes, the violations put the municipalities such as Mexicali, Tecate and Tijuana in the ranking of the 20 cities with the highest number of violations in the whole country; Tecate ranks sixth with 35% of crimes committed in the Entity.

Mexicali ranked 14th in the ranking of violations in 2018 with 28% for every 100,000 inhabitants, and Tijuana ranked 19th with 26%.

While in robbery with violence and extortion no city of Baja California appears in the top 20 of this study conducted by the civil association; which takes up the data provided by the National Secretariat for Public Security and the Inegi.

Expense without results

 
Representatives of the Citizen Council assured that in the subject of social crime prevention the federal government spent more than 16 billion pesos, but without any result.

"It was money thrown in the trash, they left the country more violent and insecure," said José Antonio Ortega.

He added that the study is important, since the government of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador intends to continue the social prevention of crime.

"But in a more radical way than its predecessors, through an increase in the distribution of subsidies, also in a way that is no longer focused but massive and indiscriminate," he said.

He concluded that the subsidies to deal with the issue of the violence index in the country did not reduce the violence nor will they do so, since they assure that since 2013 that they started with this study they have not seen a downward trend in criminal acts in the municipalities of Mexico and each time they add more to the list.

The most violent municipalities in the country

 
1. Tecomán, Colima

2. Tijuana, BC

3. Salamanca, Guanajuato

4. Salvatierra, Guanajuato

5. Manzanillo, Colima

6. Rosarito, BC"

Mandos Medios De La Policia De Tijuana Estan Coludidos Con El Narco; Leyzaola
Por, Eduardo Villa Lugo
01/11/19 

Pasted:

Middle controls of the Tijuana Police are in collusion with the narco: Leyzaola

"The middle managers of the Municipal Police of Tijuana are in collusion with drug trafficking and therefore criminals enjoy such impunity, as to commit 25 crimes in 24 hours without being disturbed.

The foregoing was part of the responses of Julián Leyzaola Pérez, current precandidate to the Mayor's Office of Tijuana by the coalition PES, PEBC and PRD, in Baja California, for the upcoming elections.
 
Accompanied by his counterpart from Mexicali, Elvira Luna Pineda, who will seek the Municipal Presidency of the capital, the lieutenant colonel, commented that it is impossible for organized crime gangs to operate and grow without the backing or support of the authorities.
 
"In order for them to settle, progress needs the protection of the authorities, if they do not have the protection they can not do it."
 
He added that the police are moved from certain areas when a criminal incident will occur so they do not obstruct it.
 
"It is not possible that there are 25 deaths in 24 hours and that none of them intervene in the police. When there is going to be an event, the commanders move the patrols so as not to hinder the criminal activity ".
 
In the same way, he commented that when he is mayor of Tijuana, he will carry out a police purge, but not as big as the one carried out in 2007, since he is not in the same conditions of corruption.
 
He pointed out that the police should not only be a protector, but should also be taken care of and that is the responsibility of the police commanders.
 
The formal registration of both candidates will take place on March 8."

PEPos, Ligados al Cartel de Sinaloa  
01/21/19

 It's a long one......

PEPos, linked to the Sinaloa Cartel

" State preventive police investigated by the intelligence areas due to their links with organized crime are still active. In Tijuana, the troop links the armed attacks against uniformed officers to partners who participate in illicit activities with the Sinaloa Cartel and put the corporations at risk. The 500 Control and Confidence exams conducted per month by C3, yield limited results

 At least three elements of the State Preventive Police (PEP) of Baja California, in payroll and assets, are investigated by the intelligence areas for their links to drug trafficking, particularly with the Sinaloa Cartel and the cell led by René Arzate. " The Frog".

An investigative agent revealed to ZETA the names of those investigated: Edmos Sánchez Lizárraga "El Elmos", Luis Santiago Burgoin Ruvalcaba "Burgoin", and one who he only referred to as "El Leo", since they have not been able to identify which of two elements, whether Leobardo Ramírez González or Leonardo Triay Blandón.
 
According to the inquiries, the three elements of the PEP would be linked to a group of drug dealers who, on June 1, 2018, murdered Francisco Ibarra González, head of the PEP's technical area in Ensenada.
 
But that would not be the only attack by criminals against officers. They are accused and investigated after it is presumed that on November 6, 2018, two state agents attacked and wounded in Punta Colonet, while conducting investigations precisely to capture the murderer of Ibarra González.
 
Twenty-four days after the attack on the officers and the escape of the murderer, on November 30, on the pedestrian bridge in front of the military garrison and the Government Center in Ensenada, a blanket was hung with a criminal message that directly involved the policemen investigated today: 

" To all the people who are working for the cartel of La Rana (Mercenary) and (90) and state policemen named Elmo ',' Leo ',' Burgon ', municipal and min. The sweeper has already fallen, we are working people, not assassins or thieves atte: Cartel de Ensenada ".
 
The epistolary affront confirmed what was already being investigated about the state: its collusion with drug trafficking.
 
In the tables of Territorial Coordination for the Construction of Peace, the operational commands of the municipal, state and federal corporations know about the issue, although the official inquiry is a mystery and the three alleged dishonest agents are still active despite the suspicion that they provided information for the murder of agent Ibarra.
 
The investigated PEP agents have a long history of crimes:

Edmos Sánchez Lizárraga appears in the penitentiary system in 2009 for trade and possession of dredges, and in 2011 for possession. In 2010 he was charged with burglary and abuse of authority, federal crimes and injuries; in 2012 and 2016 due to abuse of authority and threats, while in 2013 he was investigated for qualified homicide.
 
Since August 2016, he had been officially mentioned as an infiltrated agent of the Sinaloa Cartel, at the time in the service of Hugo Iván Rivera Gómez "El Padrino", trafficator of the Arzate brothers. However, such information had no repercussions.

With respect to Luis Santiago Burgoin Ruvalcaba, his name has been included in three previous investigations: one for robbery in 2006, another for abuse of authority in 2014 and one more for the same crime in 2017. He was threatened in December 2014, when criminals left a box with the head of a pig and a rifle cartridge on the forehead of the animal, in the vicinity of the house of the uniformed. In 2017 he received another threat, curiously from the Sinaloa Cartel, with which he allegedly has agreements.
 
As for the agent nicknamed "El Leo", he has not yet been identified.
Unofficially, ZETA was informed that in the investigations it is reported that these state policemen are supporting a cell in Sinaloa that descends small planes in the south of Ensenada. They have criminal influence in colonies like Los Laureles, Villa Residencial del Prado second section, Valle Verde, Encinos, Laureles and Villas del Sol.
 
"The plaza" would be fought by the Jalisco Nueva Generación Cartel (CJNG) and the cells identified as La Barredora, Ensenada Cartel and the Castro Mendoza brothers in Isla de Cedros.
In relation to René Arzate "La Rana", who according to the investigators has an arrest warrant for the purposes of extradition to the United States, they have identified him as criminal lieutenants to:
 
* Alfonso Niebla Vega "El 90", 37 years old, operator in Ensenada. He was captured for damage to property owned by others in 2005, and for drug possession and trade in 2009 and 2011.
* Carlos Adrián Casas Reyes "El 8" and / or "Mercenario", Sinaloan and "second in command", with two residences in Ensenada. Since 2016, he is credited with being part of the Sinaloa Cartel and maintaining gun battles for the control of the sale of narco-traffic in the port.
* Jesús Salvador Villavicencio Meza "El Venado" and / or "El Rayder", 24 years old; arrested, investigated and released for the crimes of injuries, attempted murder on three occasions, drug possession (captured and released twice) and one more for corruption. March 2017.
* Ufrano Alberto Beltrán Romero "El Betillo", presumably dedicated to the narcomenudeo and located in the attack to the palenque Poker in January 2016.
* Manuel Enciso "El Gordo", located by the group of forces coordinated as an element that transports drugs from Ensenada to Tijuana for "El Niebla".

THE ASSASSIN OF IBARRA
 
Raúl Adrián Macías Rodríguez is 20 years old and has at least two nicknames. Some say "El Tigre", others place it as "El Rulo". When he was 12 years old, he witnessed an aggravated homicide by kinship. His mother used to work in the State Penitentiary System and a state agent was his partner.
 
Nowadays, at his young age, "El Rulo" is investigated for homicide. Particularly for the murder of Francisco Ibarra González, who was the director of the technical area of ​​the PEP in Ensenada.
In the investigations they have been able to identify that the network between the indicated killer Raúl Macías and the Sinaloa Cartel, is with Alberto Beltrán Romero and Manuel Enciso. In addition, Ibarra, the murdered officer, had headed several Fraga assurances south of Ensenada.
 
According to the investigators, Macías Rodríguez and his criminal group are accused of attacking the state police officers - including a commander - with bullets on November 6, 2018, after five o'clock in the afternoon in the vicinity of a gas station in the Ejido Mexico in Punta Colonet south of Ensenada, they were looking to arrest Raúl Macías.
 
The attack was the product of an internal betrayal, when from the ranks of the PEP they informed the Sinaloa cell that the group of agents was on their way to arrest "El Rulo".

When the police arrived, they were already waiting for them.
 
In the attack where long weapons were operated, one of the elements destroyed his right hand and another the spleen and right knee.
 
To date, Raúl Adrián Macías Rodríguez is still a fugitive, so the authorities of the State of Sinaloa, in coordination with those of Baja California, are looking for him in Mazatlán.
 
 CELL OF "EL 50" IN TWO ATTACKS TO POLICE
 
Around nine in the evening of Sunday, January 13, in the C4 received the report of an armed attack in the private Aniz de Villas del Prado, area where several police received housing credit.
There the body of Aldo Garibaldi Rodríguez was located, and as a wounded, the municipal police René Solís Alor.
 
Witnesses say that the attack was direct against Garibaldi. Five shots faced the young son of Monica Rodriguez, a municipal agent assigned to Los Pinos. Solis was shot later. The bullets came to him from the back while he dressed in civilian clothes and accompanied his neighbor. He was not working as he does in the Central Zone.
 
Solis and his family would have been living with the victim in front of a bonfire when two men arrived. One wore a black hooded sweatshirt and carried a short weapon, the other was covered with a blue jacket and wielded a long weapon; one of the sweatshirts had the legend Aero .
 
The official Rodriguez explained to the authorities that she lived in the house in which her son was attacked, but had moved a week ago, after receiving "threats from a hitman who lives outside the private one", which she did not identify.
 
Other witnesses warned that a couple of police who live in the same private "seized a drug" and ignored how they stayed, but they were "selling", the criminals found out and were threatening.
In the search for the murderer, the Municipal Police captured Cristian Reynoso Ordaz, 32, in possession of a rifle. Previously he had recognized selling drugs for the CJNG.
 
The alleged offender detailed that on Sunday of the attack, he spoke "El Homero" to give instructions to pick up a car and then go through "The Virus", who had run out of gas, he waited for twenty minutes but did not appear, and when He went down to look for him, after the bullets stopped him.
Although "El Homero" was identified by one of the witnesses of the shooting in Villas del Prado, where they murdered the son of the police Rodríguez, he would later say that he had only driven the car.

Although he did not admit to having participated in the attack unofficially, Reynoso Ordaz did say that he had been working with "El Homero" for three months, of whom he knows, he is the brother of "El Tortas" and that the two had been recently arrested. He gave details about his participation in the criminal operation of the CJNG cell: supplying three "little shops " in the Sanchez Taboada neighborhood, in exchange for between one and two thousand pesos a week, although he was sometimes paid with the drug known as " Crystal "
 
Those referred to as "El Tortas" and "El Homero" are the Hernández Quintero brothers, Juan and Homero, apprehended around five in the afternoon on Thursday, January 10, in the vicinity of their house, between Biznaga and Cactus streets. the Sanchez Taboada colony. They carried with them a .22 caliber pistol, a shotgun and 33 "crystal " wrappers. The official report indicates that they found a citizen complaint that warned about the presence of armed men. "El Tortas" had an arrest warrant for qualified homicide, granted on May 11, 2018.
 
The police officers who detained them included in the report a caption: "We did not omit to inform that the insured are direct suspects of participation in the murder of the police in Sanchez Taboada a week ago," however, they did not provide evidence.
 
Unofficially, ZETA was able to learn that both the legend in the Homologated Police Report and the version of the Public Security Secretary, Marco Antonio Sotomayor, in which he accused the CJNG leaders of the murder of agents Omar Araujo and Fidencio Figueroa. night of January 3 in a Chinese restaurant, derived from the capture of at least three criminal groups that unanimously betrayed as responsible the thug Juan Hernández Quintero "El Tortas"; the leader of sicarios Jorge Luis Quezada "El Veloz"; and the criminal cell leader, Alejandro Vázquez Vázquez "El 50".
 
However, such delations were not integrated into the file of the homicide of officers Araujo and Figueroa, at least at the close of this edition, there were no major elements to link them with the crime of the Sanchez Taboada colony and they were being investigated for the murder committed. of Villas del Prado.
 
SOTOMAYOR: SECOND ATTACK WAS NOT AGAINST POLICE
 
" I was worried when the first version came that they had attacked them in civilian terms and in their house, because that was climbing, but after talking to our people, we saw that it was a direct attack on the boy, and that it was not the house of the police. I can be wrong, I am not the possessor of the truth, the investigation is in process, but I think it will be because of the background of the deceased, "said Tijuana Municipal Public Security Secretary Marco Antonio Sotomayor .
 
Between 2012 and 2017, the young Aldo Garibay, who worked as a guard in a school, had been arrested six times by the Municipal Police for crimes against health, carrying weapons, damage to property of others and drinking drinks on public roads.
 
- How is it understood that the aggressors are from the same group as "El Tortas"?
"They are part of the group that operates criminally in that area, but it would not make sense for them to attack a police in the Central Zone or a police in Los Pinos who do not even work, nor do they make arrests or assurances in Sánchez Taboada."
 
- What do you know among the commanders of the threat to the woman police mother of the victim and of the denunciation of a supposed robbery of drug?
"We do not have a report about it, but everything will be investigated."

NARCOS ALSO DENIED IT
 
While in the facilities of the Regional Comandancia Sur "Margarito Saldaña Rivera" was the weekly meeting of officers of the Municipal Public Security Secretariat of Tijuana, a few meters away, on the pedestrian bridge that goes from north to south, criminals hung another narcomanta which was immediately withdrawn by elements of the Tactical Operations Group.
 
 Consulted the municipal authorities, recognized the fact and, in addition to not reporting to the Public Prosecutor, decided to reserve the content of the message of the criminals, limited to declaring that words more or less, the CJNG disengaged from the second attack, in which a The policeman was wounded and the young Aldo was shot.
 
"EL TORTAS", BY NARCOMENUDEO AND HOMICIDIO
 
As for Juan Hernández, head of the group allegedly responsible for both criminal operations where the police were victimized, he was brought before the Public Prosecutor's Office for drug dealing, and once he was arrested, an arrest warrant for his murder was executed. The nickname "El Tortas" denied the recent charges. He said that he was in a detoxification center from which he left recently.
 
In the homicide for which he will be tried, one of his accomplices, Manuel Santiago Navarro Silva "El Minimí", was sentenced to 27 years and six months in prison, and the payment of compensation for the damage for 734 thousand 782.40 pesos in favor of the offended, wife of the victim.
 
The file that served to convict Navarro indicates that on September 22, 2016, "El Minimí" received a call from "El Tortas", who gave him instructions, a weapon, a photo of the victim and moved him to the target's house, including he warned him when his prey was coming out. Between the Huapango and Niagara streets of Lomas de la Presa, Juan Manuel Aguilar Villa, a 53-year-old drug dealer, was killed.
 
He accused that Juan Hernández Quintero, his wife, another man whom he only identified as Giovany, his wife, Daniel Misael Murillo Gastélum "El H" and himself, also participated in the murder. For that homicide they paid 3 thousand pesos, and Murillo, 5 thousand.

National Guard, necessary evil for corruption in local police: Solalinde.

 During his visit to Irapuato, Father Alejandro Solalinde said that the police are corrupted by organized crime
Irapuato, Gto.- The priest and activist Alejandro Solalinde Guerra, director of the Hermanos del Camino hostel, said that the National Guard is a necessary evil, since the municipal and state police are corrupted by organized crime.
 
The National Guard is not what we would like, it is a necessary evil, because the previous regimes of the PAN and the PRI, but above all of the PAN, did not know how to build a real prepared police, they militarized Mexico, since from the beginning they had the opportunity to make a police competent, trained, equipped, endowed with a conception of human rights and they did not do it.
 



During his visit to Irapuato, Father Alejandro Solalinde said that even though Ernesto Zedillo's administration had been corrupting since the administration of Ernesto Zedillo, it was until Felipe Calderón's administration that they were caught by the crime and where even security officials were involved with the crime. delinquency when.
 
Solalinde Guerra pointed to Genaro García Luna, former Secretary of Public Security during the presidency of Felipe Calderón as one of the architects of what he called "the years lost in security for Mexico and faith that we see today its effects."
 
"This man could, if he wanted to, have prepared some good police corporations, I was a witness and I was going to throw him in his face, in his office, in his bunker that he was involved in the kidnapping of migrants, who was intruded on the Federal Police and direct kidnapping of migrants, they did not do it and now we are against the clock, because we have a narco-state that they have inherited from us . "
"Right now in the country the healthiest, the least involved in the drug trade are the Armed Forces, that's why I'm sorry, there's no other thing we have to start with a National Guard with a base of armed forces, so that now we can achieve some corporations police with a civil profile and the time will come when the Army will retreat to its barracks, but while there is no other: either we accept this or the crime that has infiltrated practically all the institutions of Mexico will continue to grow .
