Guaymas Municipal Police Receive New Arsenal Of Weapons To Fight Narcos

So the below article was published on line today. What the article states is that Guaymas cops now get a new arsenal to deal with drug dealers. Here is what the cops new toys will be and for some reason there is no mention of the caliber of the weapons.

  1. 66 colt automatic assault weapons
  2. 20 Glocks
  3. 30 Barettas

Clearly what this means is the city and state government are thoroughly aware that here in Guaymas there will certainly be an escalation in what can only be labeled as a completely failed war on drugs in Mexico. What I find interesting is that the cops get new firearms yet there is no mention of beefing up the ability of state or local police to do real in depth investigations such as money laundering which would really help to dismantle the hold drug cartels now clearly have over San Carlos, Guaymas and Empalme. Basically what we are going to have here is more of the same failed policy that has plagued Mexico since Felipe Calderon formally declared a war on drugs which is; let’s throw some more fuel on the fire drug policy which has not worked for the last decade. Here is a great article by Jose Gil Almos on the subject. Looks like global warming is not the only thing that is going to heat things up around San Carlos in the near future.

  1. As an update to last Monday’s shoot out on the highway here in San Carlos it has now been reported in El Vigia that the person killed in this shoot out was an ex cop with who still has family members who are municipal police in Guaymas and the shooters were ex military who were thrown out of the military because they drug tested positive.

    Which means that the State has just given a bunch of cops who are quite possibly working for the drug cartels some really nice new weapons!! Viva Mexico Cabrones!!
