Nobody should scare what happens in the North Coast and South Coast of Jalisco.
Absolutely nobody can be said surprised by the crimes that occur there and that have been registered in the last weeks, months and years.
There is a long list of murders and "uprisings" that have been presented in recent years in Tomatlan, Cabo Corrientes, Puerto Vallarta, La Huerta, Villa Purificación, El Grullo, among other locations. But nobody, absolutely nobody has paid the necessary attention.
The murder of the PRD deputy Saúl Galindo Plazola, is the example of how careless the area is and that they are in the power of all, except the authorities.
The list could start with the PRI federal deputy, Gabriel Michel, who along with his driver was deprived of freedom and later found dead in Zacatecas in September 2014. Also in August of the same year, the municipal president of Ayutla was assassinated, by the PAN, Manuel Gómez, who was killed on his ranch while working. Javier Galván, former PRI member and federal employee, originally from Autlán, was also shot dead in Guadalajara in June 2015. Javier Salazar, MC ruler for Corporal Corriente was shot dead in the municipality of Zapopan, in August 2013. In June 2014, Juan Carlos Gordián, MC ruler of Cabo Corrientes was picked up, murdered and located months later in a clandestine grave. A further unsolved case is that of Puerto Vallarta's independent councilor, Humberto Gómez, who disappeared and has not been located since 2015. The assassination of the former municipal president of Cabo Corrientes, the PRI member Carlos Orozco, was also recorded when he was traveling in his car on the road that leads to Puerto Vallarta, in October 2014. That same month and year, but in Talpa de Allende was recorded the illegal deprivation of freedom of the PAN ringleader Gerardo Ornelas, which has not been found. In La Huerta, this weekend was killed with a knife, the mayoral candidate for MC, Salvador Magaña. One more was that of Dr. Miguel Garcia, coordinator of Morena in Casimiro Castillo, who was murdered in a knife attack, both in this month of December 2017. This shows the long list of officials or politicians murdered or disappeared in the region. Coast and surrounding municipalities.
I have a condo in PV and a few residents in my building are concerned. Although PV feels safe, Nuevo is continuing to heat up as well as east of Las Juntas. The main concern is when Mencho is relieved of his role, things will really heat and the market will real estate crash. So some are beating the inevitable and selling now.
