"We are in Jalisco and do not go away, the fight is not with the civil population. It is with El Chapo and El Mayo Zambada. It's them who are wanting to fight and they do not even defend their own territory, just as those in Jalisco with the New Generation, it is the smae as El Chapo and el Mayo, they are the American government informants. And not ous. That is what Mario Zambada's son, Vincente Zambada says himself, they are the same as the informants of gringos and all the people that work with El Chapo and El Mayo. And for Jalisco people don't even control their territory, it is going to happen the same, that happened to Flaco Salgiero and those who have delivered El Chapo and Mayo. Remove the blindfold, This Cartel of Sinaloa is pure history, just as the one of Jalisco, controls not even their territory. We bring to them a mess and they don't even know where it is coming from, both governors, Jalisco and Sinaloa's are close friends of Mayo Zambada. That is why they are calm, Jalisco and Sinaloa. And now with his arrangements they do not know what to do. Look here, we leave you these Muertitos ( l'il deadies). We raise them so they look like that without the help of assholes. We are completely immersed. We are demonstrating that without the suport of the Mexican Army, Navy or any other P.F.P.,Federal or state authority and this is proof that we are immersed.
Attention: Groupo "Z", the strong, national level, only cartel not informant of the gringo. This group exists, loyalty, honor, Group Z, always loyal."

The Attorney General of Jalisco Cornado Thomas said this morning that around noon they'll provide the identity of pesons found in the vans on Thursday. He reported the process of identification has started, 14 have been identified. The majority of them are from the Guadalajara area and the authorities are trying to determine activities they were typically engaged in. While a message from Los Zetas with the bodies is an indication, investigators have yet to fully confirm whether this group is responsible for the crime which is one of the worst to hit in recent years of Guadalajara. The message was signed by Millennium Zetas which was formalized their rivalry with the CDS and New Generation Jalisco. He added that the bodies were painted on the torso, alluding to Millennium-Zetas. Most perished by strangulation indirectly, a gunshot and another was beheaded. However, he is the priority to identify those responsible for the fact that it is unfortunate, despite the fact the potential rivalry could be by criminal gangs. The main thing is that is to find the perpetrators of the slaughter that took less than a minute to leave the vans full of corpses. Also, it was noted that in the video there were at least 4 people in total who were aboard the trucks and later took a taxi. On another fact, it is confirmed that the deceased in the case was denied to have been because of a kidnapping.
DOubt those were chapos land, nobody has untouchables land, its more of can we say a lawn, u might think the weeds are out of your grass yet they are lurking, so if chapo has "control" its only a matter of time for the weeds to make a run. Same thing in veracruz, to much money is involved to be naive one group controls all the territory. The rival might have an advantage but that does not mean the adversary does not have eyes. Pepe Solis? Pancho Loko jajaja Esmero pusiste a san obama o memin penguin. Quitapuercos chapo didnt have jalisco, coronel did, these matazetas is just the generic term people give them,
