Seven thousand dead after 12 years of violence in Tamaulipas

El Manana Estado



TAMAULIPAS, MEXICO.- The war declared to drug trafficking by then President Felipe Calderón on December 11, 2006 has left thousands dead and victims in all states; Tamaulipas has not been the exception.

The 7 thousand 307 homicides recorded in these 12 years, account for the war waged by the authorities against the criminal groups operating in the state and internal strife between groups that have given birth to new cells seeking control of the squares, as cities are called by criminals.

In 2006 Tamaulipas recorded 346 murders, a year later 265, while in 2008 there were already 308 homicides and for 2009 the number of violent deaths totaled 288.

History changed drastically from 2010, homicides totaled 721 complaints, 855 for the following year and in 2012 reached its highest peak with 1,016 murders, falling in 2013 to 556, but climbing again in 2014 with 947 reports of homicide, This, despite the fact that in May of that year, the strengthening of security by the Federation in the state was announced.

The homicides fell in 2015 to 533 and a year later 595 murders were reported; last year, intentional homicides again escalated to 805 and in this year until the month of July, a thousand investigative files were opened, just over 4 homicides a day.

According to the authorities, 80 percent of the malicious homicides that are registered are directly related to crime, that is, they are adjustments of accounts, others are victims who kidnap and for some reason are killed.

As of 2014, the Executive Secretariat of the National Public Security System included in its measurements the number of victims registered for the crimes of homicide, which changed the scenario, since previously, although there were multihomicides, only one complaint or folder was registered research.

The victims in 2014 for homicide totaled 1,785 thousand, one year later 1,687 thousand and in 2016 the victims already reached 1,889, while last year they were 1,928 and in the first month of this year they already have 94, an average of three per day.

The business of the cartels has not only been drug trafficking, human trafficking, kidnapping, land collection, extortion, fuel theft, among others, they have left millions in profits.

That’s a horrific amount of casualties, how big is Tamaulipas?  As a rough (and there’s no way of really knowing) percentage how much do you think were police, military or caused by the narcos?  Does anyone really know?

I can tell you personally I know of 2 people that simply disappeared and the families were too scared to go to the police, I know of another dude former sicario  that hung himself because he was having nightmares he could still be considered a victim in that his trauma was caused by the war. And I know of just 1 person that actually got capped and reported as dead.
