MATAMOROS, Tamaulipas — The failed strategy by the Mexican government has created a new issue in this border city where organized crime has tried to diminish common crime in an effort to lower public attention. Drug cartels appear to be succeeding in lowering common crime, something that the State of Tamaulipas has failed in.

“They cut my fingers off for being a thief,” the tattoo on the forehead of a suspected criminal explained. Information obtained by this outlet points to the victim being connected to a series of burglaries in the city. His kidnapping and torture appear to be a “lesson” on behalf of cartel members. The objective of the strategy is to create terror among common criminals to keep them from “heating up the plaza” or calling attention to the region with petty crime.

During the last 45 days, the security strategy that has been taking place in this city has been run by the Gulf Cartel. Gunmen with the criminal organization have spread the word among common criminals that those who target innocent civilians will be mutilated, punished or murdered.

  2. We used to go to Matamoros back in the late 70’s to early/mid 80’s never had any problems other than the federales putting a rifle in my back and taking my Buck 110 folding hunter-the pricks.
    I’m sure one of them kept the knife-I’ll take losing a knife over getting tossed in a Mexican jail though.

    • LOL..My Dad used to go deer hunting with a group of guys near Del Rio back in the 70’s…this is when the Border down there was nothing buy maybe a marker, but in some places (still is this way in really remote areas) there is NOTHING there to tell you what is Mexico and U.S….long story short one of the guys killed a deer in Mexico and got caught be a group of Federales…the story about them having to go to a Mexican “Court House” to get this all sorted out is friggin hilarious! I will email you the Cliff Notes version of this escapade.
