Default Helicopter gunships used in Mexico resort battle

This sure won't make the "Good News" thread & with some of these cartels gaining ground in America using the Hispanic/Mexican gangs.

And our Justice Depatment needs to move hard on them now...

P.S. I do hope that follow the guns a**hole foolish idea has died.

America needs to play catch up with these guys. And the sooner they start the best for all period, or the likes of what they have done on their side of the boarder might soon come to America in ways we have yet to see.

P.S. some of the things they have done in Mexico they have done in America: Just do searches in locals like LA, AZ., TX., and other boarder states. Then check out DC, or about any other state were these International Gangs operate.

Helicopter gunships used in Mexico resort battle

By MARK STEVENSON December 20, 2013 5:18 PM

MEXICO CITY (AP) Two government helicopter gunships opened fire on 10 vehicles fleeing a luxury beach condo complex during this week's gun battle at the Gulf of California resort of Puerto Penasco, Mexican authorities said.

New details emerged about the raging gun battle that ensued after federal forces tried to capture a reputed top lieutenant of the Sinaloa drug cartel who was staying at a beachfront villa.

Mexico's federal police said late Thursday that two government Blackhawk helicopters fired on at least 10 vehicles as they tried to flee the complex with drug cartel operator Gonzalo Inzunza. The vehicles were hit by gunfire in the Wednesday battle and were "left useless, causing the assailants to disperse." Five presumed cartel gunmen were killed in the battle.

Police found 14 sniper or assault rifles at the scene, which one federal official confirmed were of heavy caliber. Two federal officers were wounded in the gunfight.

The bullet-ridden, burned-out vehicles were left just outside the complex, which federal police did not identify. But Puerto Penasco city spokesman Cristobal Garcia confirmed Friday that the shootout actually began inside the Bella Sirena complex, where Inzunza was staying at a beachfront villa. The resort has units for both sale and rent, but it was unclear if the reputed capo owned or was renting the unit in which he was staying.

Garcia insisted that "these are not people who live in Puerto Penasco ... perhaps they were here on a holiday."

But federal police said Inzunza, 42, "has set up his center of operations in Puerto Penasco," to run drug-trafficking networks that stretched through at least seven other states, from the Caribbean coast state of Quintana Roo in Mexico's southeast to Baja California in the country's northwest.

They said Inzunza "had a personal relationship with Ismael ("El Mayo") Zambada," long viewed as the No. 2 leader of the Sinaloa cartel, after Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman. Inzunza's body was not found at the scene, and federal officials said they believed the fleeing gunmen took his dead or wounded body with them, as cartel gunmen sometimes do with fallen gang members or leaders.

Federal police said late Thursday that an analysis of blood stains found in the vehicles show that Inzunza was among those killed or wounded.

Drug cartel shootouts at Mexico's beach resorts generally have been rare, though some have been reported in the past in the Pacific coast resort of Acapulco. Prosecutors in the Gulf coast state of Veracruz said Friday they had found seven bodies dumped on a beach just south of the seaside city of Veracruz. They did not provide identities or a cause of death.

47 more skulls discovered in mass graves...

Mexico drug war investigators unearth 47 more skulls in mass graves
Mon Mar 20, 2017 | Investigators unearthed the skulls of 47 more suspected victims of Mexico's drug war in Veracruz state, just days after uncovering 250 skulls at a separate mass grave used by drug cartels, the state's attorney general said on Sunday.
Veracruz, on Mexico's Gulf coast, has long been a stomping ground for criminal gangs, who fight over lucrative drug and migrant smuggling routes. Giving details on the latest grisly find, Jorge Winckler said the skulls and remains of multiple body parts were unearthed from eight unmarked graves, clustered in a 120 sq meter area, about 10 kilometers (6 miles) from the town of Alvarado. So far, Winckler said, investigators had positively identified one three-person family, missing since September 2016, and the remains of two other men. "The work continues," Winckler told a news conference, vowing to track down the perpetrators.

Just days earlier, investigators recovered more than 250 skulls from another unmarked grave 60 kilometers (37 miles)further north in the Gulf state of Veracruz. That burial site was uncovered by relatives of missing family members, impatient with officials' apathetic response, who launched their own search for missing family members. The relatives' groups have exposed the government's slow progress in attending to rights abuses and victims. The former governor of Veracruz, Javier Duarte, who belonged to the country's ruling party, is a fugitive, fleeing organized crime charges.

Separately, on Sunday the Veracruz attorney general's office said it was investigating the murder of a journalist, Ricardo Monlui, who was shot dead in the town of Yanga. Veracruz is the most dangerous state in Mexico for journalists. The Committee to Protect Journalists said in 2016 that at least six reporters had been killed for their work since 2010, when Duarte took office, adding it was investigating nine other cases.
