CDG, whatever that means is so fallen from grace now. I am going to read federal cases out of McAllen and Brownsville, I bet they aren't even any large cocaine seizures anymore. CDG is going the way of Los Arellanos in Tijuana. They just have more control, due to geography.
Infighting and paranoia destroyed them, I have been following since 2010.
I completely agree with CDG has fallen off the map.
For me the death of Samuel Flores Borrego alias Comandante M3, turned the gulf cartel into complete mess. M3 was the most powerful leader in the gulf cartel bigger than Tony Tormenta and El Coss. Sr. M3 was loyal until his death to the Cardenas Guillén family.
I know there are still questions and theories about his death but at least we can I agree that El Coss ordered the hit and Juan Reyes R-1 killed the hand that feed him. Some people still to this day say that R-1 is still alive, but I don’t think so too much ego to just be hiding for all this years.
M3 had so many people under his command Mario Pelón
X-20, Pakito M-77, Juan Reyes R-1, Chava 88, el Simple,
el Tachas, Polimenso, Mellado, Señor Lino, el Gringo, el Puma, Pikol, Hamburguesa, metro 4,.. i can go on and on but overall big time leader fully controlled Reynosa, Rio Bravo, and La Rivereña.
I think R-1 was killed either in Jalisco or Michoacan that was ordered by metro 4 or M4 this guy took over los metros after Señor Samuel was killed. Eventually in 2013 m4 was also killed by El Gringo at first everyone thought El Tachas killed m4 because of the area where m4 was killed, but eventually El Gringo and his supporters where wiped out.
A friend of mine shared this picture to me of Samuel Flores Borrego published in YouTube I think.
Who in the metro fraction would have contacts in order to get drugs to for their Plazas? I always thought a strong leader from the Matamoros fraction or Reynosa would be able to unite the Gulf Cartel, but seem like that wouldn't even work. Maybe the threat of the CJNG?
That's a great question that I have not been able to answer. The closest I have come up with is that "El Panilo" supports the CDG in Hidalgo under the leadership of Eloy Flores, alias "Papa Grande" (and their front, Columna Armada Pedro J Mendez) as well as Victor Manuel Perez Rico, alias "El Pantera 16". It may be that is the general supply route for drug shipments assuming he is able to import cocaine.
I agree wholeheartedly, with the emergence of "El Contador" Cardenas and alleged government backing I assumed that he would slowly unite the CDG once it was evident that the Old School Zetas were involved with him. I thought that the rise of "El Panilo" was a clear sign that this was speeding up, but the continued power struggle in Reynosa makes me think that unification of the CDG is an increasingly unlikely possibility.
Panilo is an ex Zeta and worked directly for Lazcano. Panilo was the guy incharge of the stolen diesel and gasoline for the Zetas back in the days.
Panilo is not really liked by others and the only reason why this guy rose up just like Toro is because of the captures, and deaths of the real commanders that actually knew how to command their troops.
Panilo was in jail for kidnapping an owner of a store in Reynosa, so if that tells you anything about this guy just another rat or marrano.
No one deserves to be called boss in CDG inept all around.
Chiricuas m-85 like I said the other day has lots of narco corridos by Cano y Blunt and its no fake sh%%
Chiricuas started from the bottom very bottom and also poor background. M-85 started as a look out or halcón eventually turned into a hit man. Chiricuas worked under Pikol m-15, Pikol was closed friend of M3. Chiricuas was given the Zona Centro part of Reynosa by m3 and Aquiles Serdán sector that is his stronghold and grew up there. Chiricuas is a lot like Choco both don’t usually get in trouble or stay away from gossip and just make $$$
I agree with you bro both Choco and Chiricuas are good candidates but I don’t think they want the job too much heat on you when being the boss of Reynosa. Let’s not forget social media in Tamps plays a big role.
Going back in time when I LOVED reading Borderland Beat because of the Zetas and Gulf Cartel war of 2010 a picture of Chiricuas was published wearing military clothing here in BB but those photos are from a YouTube video.
Too much military presence in Tamps for CJNG to just walk in. Cjng also would need to buy the local military, local government, local police force, and make an alliance with someone to be able actually make a move in Tamps.
