Ambush elements of the Michoacán Police in Aguililla

Aguililla, Michoacán.- Elements of the Michoacan Police were ambushed this morning at the entrance to Aguililla; so far the death of three uniformed and six others injured, the majority of seriousness is confirmed; the armed subjects set fire to some patrols that were abandoned by the gendarmes.



A group of seven vans traveling in the direction of Aguililla were attacked shortly before arriving at their destination.

According to versions of the same elements that were traveling in the units, a command of armored trucks intercepted them and attacked with bursts of submachine guns.



It should be noted that the alleged aggressors left cards on the windshields of the patrols shot with threats against the Michoacan Police and are signed by the Jalisco Nueva Generación Cartel (CJNG).

Some of the patrols that were left on the side of the road after the attack were set on fire by the alleged gunmen.



Several groups of the Ministry of Public Security (SSP) moved to the scene with the support of military personnel

Mica, indeed tragic.

What you hope is no knee jerk reaction to the partnership of Viagras/Policia.

Some of these police, might really be trying to set things upright.  Until then, know that some people are probably innocent.  A tragedy.  

Paz -

There are always 'some' police that want and try to do what is right, but in the world of plata o plomo, it isn't always possible.

I remember a long time ago they had come up with a formula that said Mafia/gangster movements tend to last about 7 years.  The kingpin strategy killed that hypothesis.  I don't see Mexico even fully recovering from this crisis.  80% of Mexican police are compromised.  We barely know what is really going on in these hotspots because of news blackout.

14 dead so far on law enforcement’s side. This is a pretty big deal and will likely lead to more tit-for-tat between security forces and criminals. Sort of how it happened after the 2015 Ocotlán ambush.

It's ironic this does not meet the "mass shooting" standard that the US reports on.

Part 1;

Keith Deadwards is purveyor of lies.  Just read his blog and twitter account.  It's disgusting.

249 mass shootings in the USA, that's .75 mass shootings a day.  Are you kidding me?

Mexico 3?  Tijuana, Coahuila, Guanajoto, Vera Cruz massacre of 31 people?, 14 police in Agulilla, Chilpancingo, Cancun?  What the hell?  Keith Deadwards, expert at nothing.  Please don't post these type of figures, people just aren't that stupid.

Gun control liberal, not fact based!

Now back to Aguillila.



The leader of the Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG) is reportedly planning to go back to his roots and return to his home town in Michoacán.

The newspaper El Universal reported on Tuesday that Nemesio “El Mencho” Oseguera Cervantes has advised social leaders, mayors and municipal security officials in Michoacán of his intention to move back to Naranjo de Chila.

The town is located in the Tierra Caliente municipality of Aguililla, where the CJNG was allegedly behind an ambush Monday in which 14 state police were killed.

Security authorities in several municipalities told El Universal that they had been made aware of Oseguera’s plan, adding that his intention is to make the region surrounding Aguililla his “bunker.”

The message was relayed by associates of “El Mencho” to authorities and other people in the municipalities of Tepalcatepec, Los Reyes, Tancítaro, Aquila, Coahuayana, Buenavista, Nuevo Parangaricutiro, Coalcomán and Chinicuila.

Part 2:



In the area of Michoacán where the Tierra Caliente, Costa, Sierra and Sierra-Costa regions meet, threats and attacks began to increase in April. Sources told El Universal that the violence is directly related to Oseguera’s desire to return home.

The kingpin wants to retire, be arrested or die in his native land, they said, adding that he intends to guarantee his security with “human walls.”

To establish the “walls,” Oseguera is seeking complete control of Aguililla as well as surrounding and nearby municipalities.

To establish control, the CJNG must defeat Los Viagras in Apatzingán and Buenavista, the sources said, and eliminate strongholds of the Caballeros Templarios in Lázaro Cárdenas and Tumbiscatío.

In other municipalities that “El Mencho” is seeking to control, the CJNG faces opposition from self-defense groups.

That opposition can be very fierce: nine presumed Jalisco Cartel hitmen were killed in clashes with citizens of Tepalcatepec in late August, mass shooting.

Less than two weeks later, the CJNG released a video in which a masked gunman said the cartel’s conflict isn’t against the ordinary residents of Tepalcatepec but rather Juan José “El Abuelo” Farías and a local crime gang he allegedly leads.

The speaker claimed that Farías is also a member of the Caballeros Templarios cartel or the Viagras gang and urged residents to run him out of town.

However, citizens of Tepalcatepec are wary of the intentions of the CJNG, telling El Universal that they are not willing to succumb to the cartel’s control as part of Oseguera’s strategy to stay safe in his home town.

Part 3:



Before gangsters ambushed and killed 13 state police in Michoacán on Monday, the Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG) threatened to retaliate if officers didn’t agree to work for them.

The threats made by CJNG members in Aguililla – the municipality where the ambush occurred – began four days ago, according to a report published on Wednesday by the newspaper El Universal.

Police officers said the criminal organization made contact with middle-ranking commanders in the Tierra Caliente region of Michoacán.

The cartel wanted police to provide protection that would allow CJNG leader Nemesio “El Mencho” Oseguera Cervantes to return to his home town in Aguililla.

The cartel members told police that if they refused to cooperate, they would kill all officers who entered territory under their control.

Part 4, (thanks nabble,

Witness the anguish, please.  It doesn't get anymore painful than this.  If you don't feel the same, please start at Part 1.



Police who spoke with El Universal said that while on patrol last Friday, they became aware via radio communication that an armed group was about to intercept them. That allowed the officers to change their route and avoid being ambushed.

However, luck was not on the side of a contingent state police deployed Monday to Aguililla, who came under attack by armed men traveling in several trucks. Narco-banners left at the scene in the community of El Aguaje were signed by the CJNG.

Governor Silvano Aureoles blamed Aguililla Mayor Osvaldo Maldonado for the police massacre, claiming that he hadn’t signed a security agreement with the state government

However, the mayor refuted the allegation, stating that he personally signed a “unified command” agreement in September last year.

Maldonado also said that he was told by the state government that there would be meetings with mayors to discuss security issues in different parts of Michoacán. But the meetings never took place, he said.

Friends and families of the slain police officer blamed state authorities at a memorial yesterday, where yells of “Killer!” greeted Michoacán Governor Silvano Aureoles, who called on President López Obrador to confront the violence in the state.

Part 5, (finale);



Several families refused to participate in the event, accusing authorities of attending only to have their photos taken.

One of the police officers who survived the attack has questioned the length of time it took — about an hour, according to media reports — for the army and the National Guard to send support to the officers who were attacked.

He also said they were ill-prepared: several officers were not armed for a gun battle, carrying only their sidearms.

The army has since bolstered its presence in the state’s notoriously violent Tierra Caliente region.

National Defense Secretary Luis Cresencio Sandoval said that 80 soldiers including military commanders from

 Apatzingán,( recent news),  are carrying out reconnaissance to locate those responsible for the police killings.

Security Secretary Alfonso Durazo said state authorities are in charge of the investigation but the federal government is offering support.

Meanwhile, the Michoacán Commission of Human Rights issued an urgent call to the federal Security Secretariat to attend to the security situation in the state.

Commission president Víctor Manuel Serrato Lozano urged the federal government to provide its full support to Michoacán. The citizens of Michoacán are demanding the provision of public security as a human right, he said.

Former self-defense force leader Hipólito Mora claimed on Tuesday that cartels are being allowed to operate with impunity in the state and urged the federal government to change its security strategy.

Sidenote:  Raw anguish, for those either corrupted or innocent (friends of Mexico) as a police force in Aguillila, Governor Aureoles, who called on AMLO, to provide more security to Michocan, where is AMLO's voice to plan, prepare and act?  Please understand the root event.  Possibility that Mencho was only diverting attention to this birthplace, as a bunker??,, (at the sake of 14 police, so he can go to another?  Imagine.  Probably true, why would El Mencho send all these signals to Michocan?  Only to deflect true location in my opinion, but the noose grows tighter) .  Sooner than later for the evil people, who kill for convenience, their time comes, unfortunately later than sooner.  Sad.

Hey Canadiana - not really despairing but feeling the pain of those, who believe in the current government and their newly acquired talents.  Seems to me, either socialism or realism. AMLO in denial.  (Sorry for the digs, lately :))

Part 1, (sigh, damn it Nabble!);



The body of one of 13 state police officers killed in a cartel ambush in Michoacán on Monday was returned to his family wrapped in nothing more than black plastic bags.

María Guadalupe Reyes, mother-in-law of slain officer Juvenal López Castolo, rebuked the Michoacán government for not making the effort to properly prepare the body for the funeral.

Authorities delivered Lopez’s plastic-cloaked body with a state police uniform placed haphazardly over it, she said.

Another relative, Soledad Medina, told the newspaper Milenio that blood and other bodily fluids were leaking out of the plastic into the box in which López was placed.

“. . . Blood was dripping from the head . . . liquid was coming out of the body . . . It’s not right,” she said.

A funeral was held for the 29-year-old victim on Wednesday at a cemetery in Charo, a municipality that borders the state capital Morelia.

Milenio reported that the song Historía de un Policía (Story of a Police Officer) accompanied the funeral procession, its lyrics eerily reminiscent of the fate López and the other slain police officers met at the hands of suspected Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG) gunmen.

“Unfortunately, here in my land the damn war has no end. Hooded men, strong and armed . . . ambushed us . . . shot from different sides. They riddled us [with bullets] in seconds,” the song says.

State police deployed to the Tierra Caliente region of Michoacán said that before Monday’s attack, CJNG members threatened to retaliate if officers didn’t agree to work for them.

Leading yesterday’s funeral procession was López’s widow and mother of his two daughters, Jazmín Guzmán, who a day earlier confronted Michoacán Governor Silvano Aureoles at a memorial service in Morelia.

“What’s the use of this [service] if [all] I want is him alive,” she asked.
