BLO and Chapo Isidro after Chapo

ArmChairIntellect
Interesting read not sure if it has been posted but don't have the time to clean it up.

Mexico City, March 12 (HOWEVER) -. Chupa La Rosa has a plot with four cardinal points that divide the horizon. In the north is the village, rows of houses with orange trees, mango or avocado on their foreheads. There goes the sun from nine in the morning and no longer cool even among the branches. In the South the Basurón, landfill outdoors, where waste tumor grows as more than six meters high is located. For here is a putrid smell that dog bodies, clothes and food have been together in the same mess. In the East there is the Federal Center for Social Rehabilitation Number 8-fourth the maximum security prison of Mexico-whose face gives electronic highway bars 300 and 500 inhabited highly dangerous prisoners. It was one of many stops the master Alberto Patishtán and baptized: "The cemetery of the living." In the West, the land is free. There's the field where Isidro Meza Flores - "The Chapito" Isidro-trained his killings over the past decade, sometimes with bullet into the air, sometimes with military techniques. He is the other Chapo, the man who has the Treasury Department at their main bulletins on Mexico as "main rival" Cartel Archivaldo Joaquin Guzman Loera "El Chapo" Guzman in the transfer of methamphetamine, heroin, marijuana and cocaine the Mexico-US route. He is the leader of the organization operating Hector Beltran Leyva and groups that now are considered as cells Mazatlecos, The Mochomera, 88 and Laurillos, according to an intelligence assessment of the Deputy Attorney Specialized Investigation of Organized Crime ( SEIDO) the Attorney General's Office (PGR). Who is, according to the Ministry of National Defense (Department of Defense) took control of the Golden Triangle with the win three battles waged against Joaquín Guzmán Loera during 2012. The first on April 27 in Bacayopa, Choix. The second, from 13 to 15 May, also in the Sierra de Choix. The other 9 July in Tetamboca, the region surrounding the brook Sibajahui in the Fort Montesclaros. Since then, the agency placed him as the dominant part of the Golden Triangle region, major field for growing marijuana and poppy gum whose value on the market is estaodounidense million. The SEIDO, in its analysis, believes that men Isidro Meza Flores patrol roads, settlements and shelter for their benefit airstrips in the asphalt road towards the mountains; ie roads Ahome, El Fuerte Montesclaros and Choix, Sinaloa. This portrait is of a man whose life, intelligence agency put StratFor main factor of weakness in the study Chapo Guzman The myth of Chapo signed in by researcher Scott Stewart. Released in August 2013, before the arrest of Guzman Loera, the paper noted that the figure of "El Chapo" had weakened due to the formation of a group called The Mazatlecos who fought both territory and drug sales synthetic or raw herb, at least in the United States. "The Chapito" Isidro directs this group. It "Chapito" Isidro or "El Isidro" as indicated by blankets hung in Salvador Alvarado (Guamúchil) and signed by its principal enemy in the region, Ivan Gastelum Medina, the "Cholo" Ivan Guzman Loera front man, who has not managed to slow it down on your impulse. He takes over a life story in which, as in the "El Chapo" Guzman, two factors are opposed: the proclivity towards righteous acts of the populations in which it operates and the vicious character that has allowed him to kill more than a hundred times . As acts of justice "Chapito" Isidro is what some elders in Guasave, Sinaloa. "Yeah, right, they, the chapillos, care for us. You see how they want to walk abusive "says one while swinging on the chair seat, ventilated with a white cloth, while nearly evening. "See, the other year I wanted to take home the lady there on the corner. Some who were Infonavit. They said that, they were Infonavit. And nothing. The chapillos told the lady that not to worry. And there's the lady living. " A human rights defender in the northern region of Sinaloa, describes this aspect: "It is understood the administration of justice by himself. Out of all civil penal code. A belief that the authority no longer exists. Neither federal nor state or city. And of course, you can well live long. Or not. No fear of capture that would end up in jail. And it seems to matter little that life is short. The only fear is the law of the jungle where the world is moving and that is sometimes reversed in the group with low shots or closer to your feet. " Blacklisted companies "Chapito" according to the Treasury Department, is the gas station Jatziry Auto Services, located in Bamoa. The Mayor Icesave contracts have been granted to the gas station. "The Chapito" have built three medical clinics in communities where poverty is fitted as Choroui, The Tortugo and Huitusi (fishing villages with economic activity that depends on the hoarding of large consortia). Among the dead "Chapito" Isidro's judicial police and army members you have civilians. His name is on the ongoing investigations by the Attorney General of the State of Sinaloa in attacks on convoys of police on the roads and lately, in cities. During the war against drug trafficking, one of the battles against troops of the Ministry of Defence was the best known of the afternoon of January 30 in downtown Guasave where three soldiers died. Previously, the militia had chased a vehicle where they were alleged hitmen. The collision with bullet started at 18:00 in The Taste The Alameda, on the banks of river Sinaloa. Men were "Chapito" Isidro, according to the Department of Defense and the Attorney General of the State of Sinaloa (PGJE). Regarding the letters with the legend of the man born in 1982 in Bamoa a receivership Icesave, Sinaloa, known corrido, written and sung by Remmy Valenzuela, credited "nerves" and an arsenal plays 50-caliber shells, horns, bibs set, special MZ and grenade launchers. Also attributed a personality emboldened people with short stature and its connotation in Sinaloa is the affectionate epithet "Chapo". So tear quartets Remmy Valenzuela about it: "Not because I look chapo, I think vua crack." Isidro Meza Flores, the other "Chapo", became the leader of the Mazatlecos and The Office. Photo: Weekly Zeta FLORES MEZA FORCES - What is required to join the group? -Look, you would going to seem strange; but it was not wanting to kill, but defend one. Or give them iron and the bullies. Also see that you want to have good arrangements and how to tell me? The man, in his 30s, looks up as word search and lacks a few seconds and freezes. -A little bit of peace. But you do not understand that, do Veda, you? He says he has no name. But his words will put a little light to data on crime in the city and pay the defense could have done Isidro Meza Flores of its terroir. In the town where he was born more than 270 thousand inhabitants, the statistics of the Municipal Police show full fortnight without any kind of crimes between 2007 and 2010. Even the Federal Public Security Secretariat recognized him as one of the municipalities with less danger of the country. So much for peace. Today, if the number of crimes of high impact and high incidence of crime committed in 2012 and the trend is compared, Icesave is the most insecure town of Sinaloa, according to reports from the Attorney General of the state. In crimes of high impact, Guasave still exceed Culiacan and Ahome (Los Mochis, its main development center). Icesave, gray dust devils point is the last enclave called golden triangle before and despite its statistical collapsed on drug-related offenses, no city or tried jail here. The county jail was maintained by the blows cracked moisture from the nearby river, the Ocoroni and several hurricanes. Last December, it was closed and the prisoners transferred to Ahome. Due to the implementation of the new Criminal Code, penal reform of 2008 and involves oral trials, the court settled in the neighboring town south: Salvador Alvarado (Guamúchil). - And what happened then? 'Well, everything is pissed says the man of few words and give signs that he is not going to talk about that because it begins a story about the coming harvest mango good for August if it starts raining in mid-June. "In June when it should rain. Not in July. In July, pa ya Do what? Yesss, it is not good that one is rotting mango. Military training Meza Flores could have done in the Chupa Rosa, Documents State Ministerial Police said it is an assumption on your profile at the time of operation, which-under-consideration may be important to capture. This track made in September 2012, the police in coordination with elements of 89 Infantry Battalion detain Luis Joel Carrillo Landell, 31 years old, who identified himself as a former military. In his statement, Carrillo Landell seated left that supplied weapons and tactical equipment to the cartel "El Chapo" Isidro and also admitted to being thugs because coach had military adistramiento. The detainee said he exteniente the Mexican Army Special Forces Airmobile Group (GAFE). But these tests were dashed in court. Carrillo Landell complaint alleged charges when answered the question of what was spent as out of military service. He said selling tactical gear, weapons and armor entrepreneurs low risk of kidnapping or attacks and personally trained them his bodyguards. Ministerial modified "entrepreneurs" with "Chapo Isidro" by hitmen and bodyguards. THE BIRTH OF A HOOD "El Chapo" Guzman Chapo Isidro betrayed, he says. Photo: wikipedia.org The war has left north of Sinaloa shattered. With the entry of the soldiers who were part of Operation Condor strategy, completed three decades of bullets and a figure that has not been officially told of dead, displaced, missing, mutilated, and raped women and killed. No need to balance the innumerable black extends on earth to be justified and credible. All that has happened only here, on a piece of valley and mountains. In the seventies, who dominated northern Sinaloa named Pantaleon Rodriguez. He died in his own law, to death, in Guadalajara, Jalisco. In the 80s, who dominated northern Sinaloa boy named Pantaleon Rodriguez. He died in his own law to death in New York. It was one time. The road for many, had bifurcated go with pantaleones or reach graduation from high school. The two Pantaleones, at the time, walked primary and secondary schools to take care of items rubber cultivation, "up there" in the mountains. The first was the fate of some. It is difficult to know now whether it was the most, the fact is that researchers in the Faculty of Social Sciences of the Autonomous University of Sinaloa, Mazatlan, think that a generation of Sinaloa was beating with that offer adult in your environment. The story of Faust Isidro Flores Meza is similar to that. He did conclude High in 1996 the then Federal Insurgentes High School (ESFI) is now ESGI, but also left-other-train the municipality of Sinaloa de Leyva with Amado Carrillo Fuentes, then leader of the Juarez Cartel . The epithet "Lord of the Skies" Carrillo Fuentes adueñar won by a fleet of aircraft. There, Isidro Meza Flores, have learned to fly, land care, and whistles to navigate the roads. Theirs did not exceed a swath, an affiliate a seasoning (adjective in Sinaloa who mature early). In 1997, still a teenager and the federal government of Ernesto Zedillo Ponce de Leon reported that Carrillo Fuentes had died while they were plastic surgery. The "Chapito" Isidro made his choices and joined the cartel of the Beltran Leyva and consequently that of Joaquin Guzman Loera "El Chapo" Guzman. He was still a mere runaway of "mad rabble" happy to adrenaline, impacted more by implied adventure getaway, for the money. "It's like the pretty child bathed vicholo (without clothes) on the river here in Bamoa, would have killed him," says a former resident of Bamoa Pueblo, where the settlement of marriage of Fausto Isidro Isidro Meza was born Angulo and Angelina Flores Apodaca. His mother, as often happens in the biographies of the drug, has been detached from it, send blessings while having origin but uncertain fate. They did so other mothers of men whose names began filling the search listings by organized crime. Aurora Fuentes, Amado Vicente mother, Rodolfo and Jose Cruz Carrillo, mother and Consuelo Loera Joaquín Guzmán Archivaldo are examples. The Fausto Isidro Meza Flores is included in the newsletter Treasury as part of the cartel. As soon as I knew, told local media: "I am totally apart from their activities. He does not mix us all. I have a long time I do not know him. Long time since I looked at him, not dwell together with him. It's very painful for me, but that's life and respect their decisions, and I do not know why America is involving us. " The Treasury Department maintains boletinados his sister, Flor Angely Meza Flores, 22, and his wife, Araceli Chan Inzunza, 27. Panfilo also his uncles and Salome Flores Flores Apodaca Apodaca. In 2008, the Mexican Army forces captured Alfredo Beltrán Leyva, "El Mochomo" one of the leaders of the cartel. The rest of the organization accused the Chapo Guzman and Ismael "El Mayo" Zambada treason. It was another moment bifurcated: You go with or go with Beltranes Chapos. Flores Meza chose the former. But it was not to be a mere apprentice. A NORTH TO VALE MDD "Up", as it is called the Sierra, we should not arrive unprepared. 80 percent of the marijuana production in Mexico is there and you rate its value in millions of dollars, according to the PGR. Those who belong to Mazatlecos-Office-Beltrán Leyva and lately, Zetas, the first tactic to get the saw, failed them when you consider the number of casualties in their first battle, that of April 27, 2012. They failed because the death was imposed low profile that had hitherto endeavored to take. Stay in the shade in these areas allows much, almost everything. When they arrived triangle Urique, Chihuahua. They pretended there, reaching Bacayopa in Choix, and then reach the ranch of El Potrero Fierro which would eliminate Adelmo Núñez Molina, "Lemo" or "Lord" or "01". How important could be up there for a man who wanted to kill? At that time, all. Adelmo was one of the most trusted men of "El Chapo" Guzman Loera, an expert foreman herb production. The most effective steward. But despite the up and up, "the Chapitos" they found there "the Chapos". Of these there was not a hit, not a lieutenant, no. And that had gripped the walk way on the narrow roads because their vehicles could not turn. The hillsides are full of thorns guachaporis-difficult to remove once attached to clothing or skin-and acacias. While not found "Lemo" there were soldiers of the Department of Defense and members of the municipal police. All versions are that the Sinaloa Cartel and Chapo came later, when the shooting was already given. The truth is that the fighting lasted four days. It was also true that this battle resulted in the most significant displacement in northern Sinaloa since 2006. When the battle ended, some men came down to the communities. Defeated by the sun, dry to fight, demanding food and water. But they kept shouting, "Go. There will be shot. " Young men and women, adults and seniors, and children made their way on foot to the Fort Montesclaros, distant about 17 miles from the Sierra de Choix. From 13 to 15 May, the same players repeated the script. And again, entry, bullets travel. After that, "the Chapitos" not again enter Urique. They chose Tetamboca a Sinaloa village between hills with huge rocks on top. In fact, one would call "the finger" because in it, the stone is elongated, as indicating the sky. There are currently almost buried that here was a signal cabin. The trunks, branches, and some blankets here indicate that some men camped. None of the people that were denied them, "the Chapitos". But the July 9, 2011, things turned out very, very wrong. About 50 gunmen decided to descend the hill to see the road go through six state police patrols. Survival instinct or hunch that going for them, but left the cabin and formed two distinct sides. And again, certain death surrounded them all. Such a long-shooting that told the members of the Ministerial Police, almost fatigue finally started. Six ministerial fell on the road. That the killers were "Chapito" Isidro was learned that Juan Pablo Osuna also fell Lizarraga, "The Hundred" or "Raccoon" and Gustavo Nunez Ismael Soto, "El Guero Bachoco". This "Guero Bachoco" preventive state police was between August 6, 1999 and June 15, 2003. This time, there were 30 deaths. It's been almost two years, but not yet achieved Tetamboca recover. There are houses with bullet holes and damaged cars. It's as if the houses shout, we played a war path to be "up". But the mountain has not been his only stage. That his desire to kill policemen on the roads developed. There's the attack on Sunday March 6, 2011 in Mexico-15 near Guayparime, where seven ministries were defeated death. The group of "Chapito" Isidro proposed release a detainee who carried Ahome (Los Mochis). O can be taken into account in this blog the attack of 11 May of that year outside the state police in which nobody died. One may also consider the July 2011 again in the Mexico 15, at the height of the deviation Naranjo station that killed 11 policemen and one civilian. WHO WOULD THINK? Isidro Meza Flores was located and shaped after one of his top lieutenants, Geovanny Lizarraga Ontiveros was arrested early May 15, 2011 in Los Mochis. Geovanny The ministerial statement indicates that it is "El Chapo" Isidro which is in charge of all cartels against "El Chapo" Guzman; ie Mazatlecos, The Office and the rest of the Beltran Leyva; that he is negotiating with farmers to purchase marijuana in the mountains and that cocaine and glass are manufactured in Guadalajara, Jalisco. He also says that all Meza Flores ambition is to be a "boss of bosses". -Above all, what makes a hit man to betray the cartel killed and left to kill? -It's just a lot going on. Spend a lot. Prison is not good Pá anyone. And there's no honor when one is lost, says the man in whose being something that has detonated his talk again be generous. - Were there traitors in your group? -No, there are dudes in prison, just. THREE LOOPHOLES "The Chapito" Isidro is a perfect product factory legends are these roads. Your life is the sum of circumstances that always result in real, but so unlikely. Sneaking and nobody sees it, while leaving behind a halo of powder and terror. On April 6, in the middle of Holy Week, a clash between gunmen and elements of the Elite Group of the Ministerial Police of Sinaloa was awarded to his presence. I wanted to go to sea, said a ministerial police. In crossfire they were hundreds of swimmers. He fled by sea route to Los Cabos. The January 20, 2013, a national newspaper in Nuevo Leon fincado, reproduced photos of the mother and wife of Isidro Meza Flowers in a basketball game in the Alphonsine College of San Pedro Garza Garcia in which two of his daughters study. The girls did not return to classes at that institution. The morning of October 13 was another subterfuge. "The Chapito" was a party the day after the marriage of one of his sisters at St. Mary Gold, Nayarit. He touched the side and was also there Remigio Alejandro Valenzuela Buelna, "Remmy" Valenzuela. The party arrived in Marina elements of terrestrial vehicles and helicopters. Remmy Valenzuela sings the ballad of "Chapito" Isidro in person:

I thought he gave that up after Mty?

whatever the case...I think Arm Chairs post posted on mainboard is one of the best I have ever read.

Arm Chair you and I share a deep interest in this mysterious guy.  He powerful yet we hear so little.  People are under the mistaken belief that because an entity is quiet that is the sign of weakness, it often  means, with strong criminal groups,  "under control".

His loyalty is rare.  that is what made me so interested in him, how he chose BLO instead of Sinaloa, out of pure loyalty, and saved BLO from going the way of the dinosaur.
 
The way I see it.... the more people that don't like me, the less people I have to please

Thank you Buela coming from you that means a lot.  We share many of the same curiosities and as you know will always carry my respect.  As for CIF as I notice is the new handle being thrown about, you know you have become something when people start to use an acronym to describe you or your organization...  BB has been here for his rise and will be here for his fall.  Not many wrote about him and I believe we were one of the first, certainly one the first in english to cover his escapades.  Our articles are now source for many that have been written since.  The archives of both the main page and forum have become in my opinion one of the finest, most detailed and accurate places to find cartel information.  The DOJ knows this, Insight Crime knows this, hell even Strafor and their smug overly ambitious selves have used us.  BB is home to the largest english archive of cartel activities in existence right now.
