The Normalistas (those of the same school as the ill-fated 43 students murdered/disappeared several years back doing the same thing) have not given up their tactics of hijacking coaches for their activity.
Estudiantes de la escuela Normal Rural de Ayotzinapa, algunos de ellos con el rostro cubierto, llegaron a las terminales de Estrella de Oro y Estrella Blanca, de Chilpancingo, Guerrero, para esperar a que saliera un autobús que pudiera ser utilizado para el traslado de sus contingentes. Alrededor de las 15:30 horas interceptaron la unidad 8315, que tenía como destino el puerto de Acapulco, Guerrero, que estaba casi lleno de pasajeros. Tras detener la unidad, dialogaron con el chofer y pidieron a los pasajeros bajar con todo y su equipaje, porque tomarían el autobús. Aunque inconformes, los pasajeros accedieron, bajaron sus maletas y mochilas y descendieron, reprochando la inmovilidad que mostraba el personal de una patrulla de la policía del estado que estaba cerca. Una vez con el autobús vacío, los normalistas lo abordaron y se retiraron con dirección hacia Tierras Prietas, para de ahí tomar el libramiento que permite llegar a la ciudad de Tixtla, donde se ubica su plantel. Aunque la acción de los normalistas fue observada de cerca por una patrulla de la policía de estado, no se generó ningún disturbio porque los policías no hicieron el intento de detenerlos.
Students from the school "Normal Rural de Ayotzinapa", some with covered faces, arrived at the bus terminals of Estrella de Oro and Estrella Blanca in Chilpancingo Guerrero, waiting for a departing bus that could be used to carry its members. Around 15:30 they intercepted bus 8315, destined for the port of Acapulco, Guerrero, which was full of passengers. After stopping the bus, they talked to the driver and asked the passengers to get off with all their things and luggage, as they were taking the bus. Although unhappy, the passengers agreed, taking their suitcases and backpacks and disembarking, expressing disappointment in nearby police patrol that refused to intervene. With the bus empty, the normalistas boarded and changed direction for Tierras Prietas, and from there took the freeway to the city of Tixtla, where there campus is located. Although the action of the normalistas was observed by a close by patrol of state police, it did not cause a disturbance as the police made no move to stop them.
Those 43 and the successors, they are all kind've radicals. Hijacking buses to MX city and getting on the wrong one . . a tragic mistake. Here it come's again. Not the right move, don't create mayhem to cause mayhem. You will not get what you want. Normalista's I'm personally proud of you, but please know the game! Don't go on buses, congregate!!

Ten members of a musical group and members of the Regional Coordinator of Community Authorities of the Founding Peoples (CRAC-PF), were shot dead and burned at the entrance to Mezcalcingo, municipality of Chilapa, allegedly by the criminal group known as «Los Squirrels ». (LOS ARDILLOS)
Consulted by telephone on Friday night, the leader of that community organization, David Sánchez Luna said that the musicians, originally from Alcozacan, were hired on Thursday to liven up an event in the town of Tlayelpan.
«The partners left yesterday, they were hired to play in Tlayelpan. Today at 11:00 in the morning they came back and ambushed them there in Mezcalcingo. All who went, all were killed, ”he said.
In a document that Sánchez Luna sent to this editorial minutes after the interview, he also explained that the alleged hitmen of Los Ardillos burned the two trucks in which the members of this musical group called Sensation moved.
José Julio, Crescenciano, Israel, Antonio, Candido, Lorenzo, Juan, Israel, are the names of eight of the victims, while the other two "are investigating their identity," Sánchez Luna said in the document.
The leader of the CRAC-PF informed that the Forensic Medical Service of this city moved to Mezcalcingo to collect the ten bodies, but that the requirement is that they be delivered to their families.
In case the authorities do not deliver the bodies, Sanchez warned, they will close the Chilapa-Hueycantenango road.
He also demanded that the State and Federal Government "be punished these criminals with the full weight of the law that only one day have left many widows and many orphans."
Authorities in Guerrero are investigating the ambush and murders of 10 indigenous musicians whose burned bodies were found in two vehicles on Friday afternoon.
Members of the group Sensación Musical were attacked in Chilapa while returning to their hometown of Alcozacán.
The head of the regional indigenous group CRAC-PF, David Sánchez, said his organization believes the attack to have been carried out by members of the Los Ardillos drug cartel.
State investigators conducted a search for ammunition cartridges and other evidence but had yet to find any, it said on Saturday.
One of the vehicles in which the men were traveling was found on the highway, while the other was found at the bottom of a 100-meter-deep ravine.
“It was apparently pushed into the ravine on purpose, for which we’ve opened a homicide investigation into the incident,” said state government spokesman Roberto Álvarez.
The bodies were unrecognizable due to burns, but indigenous residents blocked the Chilapa-Hueycantenango highway on Friday night after authorities refused to turn them over to their families.
Five of the 10 bodies were delivered to the victims’ families on Sunday. The state that authorities were still in the process of identifying and delivering the remaining five bodies to their families.
Guerrero is one of the most violent states in Mexico, and Chilapa has long been a battleground for the rivaling Los Ardillos and Los Rojos gangs. A clash between the two groups in the neighboring municipality of Zitlala left nine dead in October of last year.

The atrocities continue in Guerrero...
Parro, I want to thank you for your diligence in keeping everyone up to date.
Is it correct to say that Los Rojos are the dominant group now in Guerrero?
It matters not how a man dies, but how he lives.
This post was updated on .
El Bujo, glad to serve.
In Guerrero you have a mishmash of cartels. From the Independent Cartel of Acapulco, to the Tequileros, CJNG, Rojos, Granados, New Familia Michoacan and even Sinaloa. You also have the Ardillos, who are hot and heavy against the Rojos. Remember they just killed 10 musicians this past week.
Since El Carrete was captured after challenging CJNG , Rojos have fragmented. They still have a large presence from Chilpancingo to Chilapa (as do the squirrels), Tierra Colorado and both ways. Morelos was a stronghold as well and they made a large living of trafficking heroin and especially, extortion locally.
The Granados, put theirselves in trouble in Aguila with the students. They still lay low. Acapulco as far as I can tell, is anarchy from La Cappuchino to others and as well as the history of Barbie and Zetas. A free for all cage match.
My complete assumption based on the "hot zone" of Tierra Caliente and particularly, border of Michocan, Guerrero, Colima and Jalisco, is a continued infiltration by CJNG. They control Las Cardenas port now and are assaulting Guanajuato and others. La Pez, Johnny Hurtado, is a ghost like Mencho. The Santanas the Tequileros remain strong on the border as well as Abuelo, but CJNG seems to be coming at everyone.
I'd say La Familia, but they are being assaulted on all fronts. Arcelia is the stronghold and moves from there. Los Granados/Rojos in Chilpancingo, Tequileros in Petatlan and up the mountains. CJNG, hot on everyone's heels.
Part 1, Kids of Guerrero vs. Los Ardillos:
How young is too young to begin training to learn how to fight back against a violent criminal gang? In the mountains of Guerrero, the answer is 5.
Nineteen children aged between 6 and 15 were presented as community police-in-waiting in the municipality of Chilapa on Wednesday.
Dressed in t-shirts of the regional community police force CRAC-PF, wearing kerchiefs that partially covered their faces and wielding shotguns or large sticks, the children marched along the Chilapa-Hueycantenango highway and through Alcozacán, hometown of 10 indigenous musicians who were murdered in Chilapa last Friday.
“Weapons to your shoulders now!” was one of the orders shouted during the march in which the youngsters from Xochitempa, Chilapa and Ayahualtempa, a community in the neighboring municipality of José Joaquín de Herrera, showed off some of the self-defense and policing skills they have learned over the past two months.
CRAC-PF coordinator Bernardino Sánchez Luna explained that the children are in training so that they know how to defend themselves in the case of an attack by Los Ardillos, a drug gang whose members were allegedly responsible for the murder of the musicians from Alcozacán.
Part 2; Guerrero Children go vigilante;
“The children sometimes go out to the fields to keep an eye on the animals and they find criminals there so it’s better for them to know how to defend themselves . . .” he said.
Dozens of people have been killed in confrontations between Los Ardillos and community police over the past four years, widowing at least 24 women and leaving more than 60 children without a father.
Sánchez said the decision to train the minors was taken because the army, National Guard and state police have all been unable to stop the attacks perpetrated by the gang, which is also engaged in a turf war with a criminal organization known as Los Rojos.
He conceded that the children would be better off at school but teachers are no longer showing up for classes out of fear they will come under attack.
The purpose of the mobilization of the budding vigilantes on Wednesday, the CRAC leader said, was to call for a visit to Chilapa by President López Obrador, to whom the CRAC has already presented a list of 29 demands aimed at reducing violence.
“We’re waiting for the president in the community . . . We want him to attend to our demands,” Sánchez said.
“. . . We’re waiting for a response from the government, from President López Obrador and from Governor Héctor Astudillo . . . they have the solution,” he added.
The presentation of the up-and-coming community police was not the first time that the CRAC-PF has publicly shown that it is preparing children for combat in Chilapa. Videos that circulated last May showed children undergoing training to defend the town of Rincón de Chautla in case of an attack.
In response to Wednesday’s march, the Guerrero government called on the CRAC-PF to respect the human rights of the children involved.

Part 3, Children go vigilante in guerrero;
Criminal gangs are recruiting children because they can’t find hitmen known as sicarios, President López Obrador said on Thursday.
Speaking at his morning news conference, López Obrador said his assertion was based on information provided by members of his government’s security cabinet.
“. . . It’s becoming difficult for [criminal] organizations to get sicarios and [that’s why] they’re increasingly recruiting children,” he said, claiming that the government’s social programs are providing opportunities to young adults that lead them away from a life of crime.
In turn, criminal gangs are led to “desperation” and resort to recruiting children to fill their ranks, López Obrador said.
“It won’t be easy” for them to do that “because we’re not going to stop attending to children and young people – we’re dealing with the causes [of violence] . . . providing options to children, young people, moving them away from weapons and violence,” he said.
The president’s remarks came in response to a question about the recruitment of children as trainees for a vigilante security force in the mountains of Guerrero.
Nineteen children aged between 6 and 15 were presented as community police-in-waiting in the municipality of Chilapa on Wednesday.
The coordinator of the regional community police force, CRAC-PF, said their training is necessary in the face of threats posed by Los Ardillos and other crime gangs.
“We teach them to defend themselves so that they’re not kidnapped. We have proof that if you carry a weapon, criminal groups don’t mess with you,” Bernardino Sánchez said.
Security Secretary Alfonso Durazo described the arming of minors as “regrettable,” adding that the government will carry out a review of self-defense forces in different parts of the country because many of them were not formed legitimately and are not operating that way either.
“It’s regrettable that irresponsible adults are arming young people who even in the best of cases don’t have any chance of properly defending themselves,” he said.
“Not all [community police forces] have a legitimate origin or a legitimate purpose. Accordingly, as a government we have the obligation to review the operation of these organizations . . .” Durazo added.
Indeed, some people say that the CRAC-PF has links to Los Ardillos’ bitter rival, Los Rojos.
Durazo stressed that public security is ultimately the responsibility of the Mexican state while conceding that additional forces are required in Guerrero.
However, the secretary said that the security situation has improved in the southern state, pointing out that homicide statistics show that it is no longer among the five most violent entities in the country.

Thanks Infohiker, since you published this, all the pictures and words came together. Everyone seems to be short handed, from nurses, to police, mafia, McDonalds, sciarios, defenders, etc. The age of low employment so it seems.
Last couple of days in Guerrero;
- Abandoned coffin dropped off in the marketplace of Chilpancingo, causing great concern, to be found filled with newspapers
- Vendor attacked in Chilpancingo
- In Alarco Taxco yesterday, 3 men were shot to death. 2 on a terrace and one dumped at the entrance to the Huizteco entrance
- day before, a bricklayer was killed in Chilpancingo, in his home built of wood and cardboard. A neck injury from blunt force
- In Acapulco, a 50 yr. old killed in El Coloso housing unit with razors??
Chilpancingo/Acapulco - still happening without the major news carriers.
Today's news courtesy of lorealdeguerrero.
One local paper, Novedades, stopped Sunday publishing about 3 months ago.......
I would think that day would be the best seller..but, hey, what do I know?
In reply to this post by Parro
Oh, Parro, razors, is really in this context, knives/blades, I'm guessing a machete. «navajazos»
In reply to this post by Parro
Parro, I agree that this assault on journalists is yet another example of these soulless de-humanized brainwashed scum and the fantasy world their consciousnesses reside in. They do not have a conscience or the capacity to feel the real truth which is that we, all people animals, the earth, everything, are One. Separation is an illusion. We aware all fingers on the same hand. They are hurting themselves as much as the victims when carrying out atrocities, they just have blocked off their humanity so they can not feel. That is the only way for a human being to behave in such a manner towards his fellows. The appeal of this criminal life is a complete mirage. Those who are lucky enough to make money at this horror show, will NEVER be able to relax and enjoy it. So what’s the point! WAKE THE FUCK UP! THERE IS NO POT OF GOLD OR GOOD OUTCOME FROM INVOLVEMENT IN THE DRUG TRADE.
First I have a question to the readers: Is 'El Tequileros" still around. Really quiet since, 2018, or July 25, 2018 when Raybel Jacobo de Almonte, or "El Tequilero" was found murdered.
What's the word out there?
It's not that there haven't been "things" going on ---- I've just been too busy doing other things, lol.
ACAPULCO, Gro., February 21, 2020.- The operational chief of the Road Police of this port, David Rodríguez was shot to death tonight while traveling in a car between the Michoacán and Cuauhtémoc avenues of the Progreso neighborhood. Policemen came to the scene after a call to the 911 emergency phone in which they alerted about several gun detonations and an injured person. Upon arrival, they confirmed that the police chief no longer presented vital signs.

Chava, it's getting no coverage - only seen one other article and nothing English-language. None of my friends in the city heard about it.
El Guero, Canadiana, don't seem to be reading the post about the missing elderly Canadian couple that we've been talking about. Maybe they will, but big tragedy!
Latest news out of Guerrero, another Monster Truck, this one CJNG;
Military and police in Guerrero arrested 18 suspected drug traffickers in two separate operations on the weekend.
The arrests were made in the municipality of Zirándaro, in the northwestern region of the state known as Tierra Caliente (Hot Country). The subjects, believed to be members of the Jalisco New Generation Cartel, were attempting to pass themselves off as community police, authorities said.
State security spokesperson Roberto Álvarez Heredia said that the first arrests were made around 3:00 p.m. on Saturday when a group of armed civilians attacked a troop of army, National Guard and state police officers patrolling the area.
The security forces repelled the attack and subdued the nine men, leading to their arrests and the confiscation of 12 assault weapons: one AR-15 and 11 AK-47 rifles.
They also seized magazines, ammunition, utility belts and a pickup truck modified to be an armored vehicle commonly referred to as a monstruo (monster).
The second round of arrests was made when National Guard troops discovered another group of nine armed men as a result of information gathered from the first apprehensions.
From the latter group they seized 13 long guns, one pistol, 103 magazines, 4,330 rounds of ammunition, a tear gas grenade and two pickup trucks.
“In the two events, the National Guard gave air cover with a helicopter in order to provide security for the police forces and for the protection of the general public,” Álvarez said in a statement.
The 18 people, armaments and vehicles were turned over to the federal Attorney General’s Office.
