The previous Current Events thread was one of the most informative on this forum, so can we get recent updates on what is happening within the CDG.
It look like Grupo Escorpion and Los Ciclones are making their move on Reynosa.
Who is supporting Matamoros and who are they fighting against? Im guessing Panilo/M-100 still has the support of Matamoros but who are the main Metros resistance?
I'd never heard of Grupo Escorpion in Matamoros until recently, what is known about this group?
Is Comandante Cortez still influential in Matamoros?
Who is calling the shots in Reynosa for Los Metros?
From my understanding the current boss for Los Metros in Reynosa is Miguelito M-56. He's a cousin of M3, and Use to be in charge of Rio Bravo and Nuevo Pregreso. Other key figures who have been in the limelight are El Primito and one of his guys Flaco Sierra M-205 not the one from Tampico. As far as I know from the matamoros side they're leader is El Contador and one key figure under him is ciclon 89. Don't know to much about Matamoros fraction. Haven't heard much of el senor Cortez since the time a video was posted of his men executing kidnappers awhile back. I did read interesting post on Reynosa codigo rojo that the ones fighting the meteos in Reynosa where men of M-100, carlitos wishkey, and a senor del el sombreo.
No more than a few 100 at most, and that is high estimate.
In the height of the Tijuana war in 2008, Teo and Inge had about 100 gunmen in their command, each. I think that is a good barometer for Reynosa, as far as size and structure of criminal organizations.
Thank you J
Why did the Cdg and Zetas war break out ?
I have read a lot on internet but
Lazcano wants the head of Commandante R1?
What happened to Commandante R1?
He was fighting Zetas in 2010-2011-2012?
So is it safe to say when the crews do convoy videos like this escorpion video...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GH-Z4jyyQxg that they bring everyone out to show thier numbers J? I lost count of how many trucks are in this convoy...but these dudes are deep.
Los Ciclones was founded by Cmdte 900, no? I was not aware that Señor 900 had been a member of Grupo Escorpion. Though it wouldn't be far fetched I guess considering he was the nephew of both Osiel and Tony Tormenta.
Reynosa is an interesting theatre of conflict, I have heard several rumours that M-100 faked his death, something about a brother or uncle in political circles? I'm not sure how true that is, but if that's the case and M-100 is allied with Grupo Escorpion/Ciclones is it really going to be true that Gama 3 and other Escorpion commanders will still be gunning for commanders that had been aligned with M-100? Such as Chiricuas and Miguelito, etc?
And whatever happened to M-28? Pelochas seems to have fallen off the face of the Earth. Is he dead or has he just gone into hiding due to the overwhelming force which has presented it self against him?
Beyond this, if anyone has any information I'd like to know about other CDG groups beyond just the most well known. For example, if anyone has information regarding Grupo Omega of Monterrey, Grupo Sombra in Veracruz (I understand they popped up around 2016 and have been warring with VEZ ever since,) as well as Grupo Rojos Zona Norte (are they allied with The Rojos founded by Chive in Tampico? What about Los Medusas and Grupo Black de Madero, are these groups subordinate to Los Rojos as well?)
I not entirely 100% on Tormenta's Escorpions eventually becoming Los Ciclones, but perhaps some of them joined. I know that members of other groups were absorbed by Los Ciclones, such as Commandante Cookies/Ciclón 286 who was a former member of Los Alacranes (the people of El Coss) and Alfa 32, who headed a group of Ciclones. It would appear the Alphas were absorbed by Los Ciclones, but kept their Alfa claves.
