I'm going to have to divide this up in several posts, since pics take so much space. If someone could help condense the pictures, that would be greatly appreciated.
After spreading the controversial video, the identity of one of the "clowns" was revealed. It would be César Eduardo aka “El Rubio”
A few days ago on social networks the video of a group of hit men from 'Los Metros', cell of the Gulf Cartel , CDG , allies of the Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG), disguised as clowns , was broadcast.
The video shows the hitmen with masks and clown makeup, while listening to a narcocorrido-rap “ La Rana” , from Group 360, drink micheladas and carry at least 3 rifles.
The material was recorded in the streets of Tamaulipas, in the municipality of Camargo, where the hitmen terrorize the population with clown masks.

Is there a new criminal group? ... The 'Commander R10' threatens to 'clean the square' in the territory of the CJNG and the Sinaloa Cartel (video)
After the video went viral one of them was identified as César Eduardo aka El Rubio , presumably originally from Santa María Del Oro, Nayarit .
Here we find our so-called perpetrator using the old WD 40 on his goat horn.
In the style of the Joker ... hitmen from the Jalisco New Generation Cartel terrorize the streets of Tamaulipas with clown masks (video)
Once again the social networks have viralized the video of some supposed members of the Jalisco Nueva Generación Cartel (CJNG), led by Nemesio Oseguera Cervantes aka “El Mencho” , in which the men of the criminal organization near the municipality of Camargo, in the state of Tamaulipas, a few miles from the border with the United States.
In the internet video you can see four hitmen from the Michoacan drug trafficker, who were armed and dressed up as clown masks in the style of the 'Joker' , the archivillan of the DC comics and part of the Batman universe .
Who are Los Metros? ... the criminal group that joins the Jalisco New Generation Cartel to face the Northeast Cartel
Los Metros is a criminal faction organization of the Cartel Del Golfo with a presence in Tamaulipas , mainly in Reynosa . This faction was created in its first beginning by Mario Cardenas Guillen, brother of Osiel Cardenas , former leader of the Gulf Cartel.
In 1988 it was that Osiel Cardenas assumed the maximum command of the Cartel, it was then that the Los Metros Block was initially founded, under his brother's main command.
On March 14, 2003 elements of the Mexican Army and the PGR capture Osiel Cárdenas in Matamoros, Tamaulipas, it was when Jorge Eduardo Costilla Sanchez assumed the maximum command of the Cartel, having Samuel Flores Borrego as his right hand, who assumed an important place In the Cartel since then, until his death, on September 2, 2011, Mexican authorities found the body of Flores Borrego in the box of a Ford Lobo truck on the outskirts of the city of Reynosa.
It was in 2010 when Los Zetas broke their pact with the Cartel Del Golfo and it was when the wave of violence broke out in Tamaulipas, and shortly after when the internal war began, factions of the Cartel Del Golfo and Los Zetas face each other, everything for fighting the absolute control of a specific organization.
Mario Cardenas, founder, was arrested and presented on television on September 4, 2012.
The Metros are aligned with CJNG? That is very interesting. I am not sure if they still are, but at one point the Metros were the most powerful of the CDG groups. This of course was back in the days that there was a Cartel De Golfo, now it seems more like they are a bunch of gangs that fight with each other as much as other cartels.
I would suggest the 'strongest' or at least best networked CDG group is the Matamoros faction for a host of reasons. They seem well connected between external organizations such as Vieja Escuela Zetas, CDN, CDG Ceros and even some elements of the Metros; while themselves holding a firm grip upon the city of Matamoros - which is of course an important strategic zone. The arrest of Alfredo Cardenas has certainly set them back though.
Tampico Grupo Rojos are also a good contender. I don't look much into Tampico but I don't see much about them popping up on BB either. Not since that whole event between Sheyla's Dragones and Los Fresitas (which later re-branded as Rojos.) However, they seem to be fairly secure between Tampico and Ciudad Madero, both of which are important ports; and have several support groups between them. Rojos Zona Norte, Grupo Black, etc.
