    Angry Mexico's version of a prison work release program!

    Mexico: Prison guards let killers out, lent guns

    By MARK STEVENSON
    Associated Press Writer

    MEXICO CITY (AP) -- Guards and officials at a prison in northern Mexico allegedly let inmates out, lent them guns and sent them off in official vehicles to carry out drug-related killings, including the massacre of 17 people last week, prosecutors said Sunday.

    After carrying out the killings the inmates would return to their cells, the Attorney General's Office said in a revelation that was shocking even for a country wearied by years of drug violence and corruption.

    "According to witnesses, the inmates were allowed to leave with authorization of the prison director ... to carry out instructions for revenge attacks using official vehicles and using guards' weapons for executions," office spokesman Ricardo Najera said at a news conference.

    The director of the prison in Gomez Palacio in Durango state and three other officials were placed under a form of house arrest pending further investigation. No charges have yet been filed.

    Prosecutors said the prison-based hit squad is suspected in three mass shootings, including the July 18 attack on a party in the city of Torreon, which is near Gomez Palacio. In that incident, gunmen fired indiscriminately into a crowd of mainly young people in a rented hall, killing 17 people, including women.

    Police found more than 120 bullet casings at the scene, and Najera said tests matched those casings to four assault rifles assigned to guards at the prison.

    Similar ballistics tests linked the guns to earlier killings at two bars in Torreon, the capital of northern Coahuila state, he said. At least 16 people were killed in those attacks on Feb. 1 and May 15, local media reported.

    Najera blamed the killings on disputes between rival drug cartels. "Unfortunately, the criminals also carried out cowardly killings of innocent civilians, only to return to their cells," he said.

    Coahuila and neighboring Durango are among several northern states that have seen a spike in drug-related violence that authorities attribute to a fight between the Gulf cartel and its former enforcers, known as the Zetas.

    Mexico has long had a problem with investigating crimes, catching criminals and convicting people. Reports estimate less than 2 percent of crimes in Mexico result in prison sentences. But Sunday's revelation suggests that even putting cartel gunmen in prison may not prevent them from continuing to commit crimes.

    Interior Secretary Francisco Blake said the revelation "can only be seen as a wake-up call for authorities to address, once again, the state of deterioration in many local law enforcement institutions ... we cannot allow this kind of thing to happen again."

    Also Sunday, Mexican federal police announced the arrest of an alleged leading member of a drug gang blamed in recent killings and a car-bombing in the violence-ridden border city of Ciudad Juarez, across from El Paso, Texas.

    Police described Luis Vazquez Barragan, 39, as a top member of La Linea gang, the enforcement arm of the Juarez cartel, saying he received orders directly from cartel boss Vicente Carrillo Fuentes.

    Vazquez Barragan allegedly organized payments, moved drugs and oversaw a system of safe houses in and around Ciudad Juarez.

    Police said he held the same rank as fugitive gang leader Juan Pablo Ledezma, though Vazquez Barragan is not named on reward or most-wanted lists published by the Attorney General's Office, as Ledezma is.

    La Linea has been blamed for a car bomb that killed three people July 15 in Ciudad Juarez and for two separate shootings March 13 that killed a U.S. consular employee and two other people connected to the consulate.

    Police did not say when they caught Vazquez Barragan, but he was allegedly in possession of about a half-kilogram (pound) of cocaine and two guns.

    His arrest led to a raid on a safe house where authorities detained four suspects and freed a kidnap victim.

    Also Sunday, the Attorney General's Office said soldiers on patrol in Ciudad Madero in the border state of Tamaulipas seized an arsenal of about three dozen guns, 17 grenades and thousands of bullets in a house.

    Elsewhere in Tamaulipas, police and prosecutors raided a lot full of truck-pulled tankers in the border city of Reynosa and seized two loaded with oil of a type sometimes stolen from the pipelines of the state-owned Petroleos Mexicanos. Nore than a dozen other tankers and freight containers were also seized.

    Mexican drug cartels have allegedly become involved in increasingly sophisticated thefts of fuel and oil from Mexico's pipelines.

    In the Pacific coast state of Guerrero, authorities reported Sunday they had found the bullet-ridden bodies of six men dumped in various locations, including three in or around the resort of Acapulco. Two of the dead men were identified as people kidnapped earlier in the month.

    Yea.. I read that report yesterday and was not surprised. The gangs and the drug lords own the prisons, the judicial system, and the local politicians by default and no one wants to end up tortured and killed so they go along with orders...

    So as conservative Americans, we're racists if we don't want them flooding across the borders unchecked?
    Right...

    Peace...
    You can give peace a chance alright..

    I'll seek cover in case it goes badly..

    The libertards always play the race card. How bout Americans for Americans, just for ONCE!!! How much money is being waisted overseas? Allowing american companies to hire and move overseas?? I sometimes dream of a president who cares and only cares about america and its citizens. Maybe I am asking for too much

    Then you'll have people and news corps. like MSNBC, trying to divide us, with crap about "Tea Party Racism" and other divisionary CRAP!!

    In most cases a minority feels they just need to yell "racism!" and they expect that the opposition will cease.
    It's become the cry of "Wolf!"... In my opinion as well as that of many other Americans, It is no longer revered as the trump card. Racism still exists here in the US and abroad. I'm aware of that...

    My family on both father's side and mother's side are descendants of immigrants from Europe. They boarded ships and registered here as they passed through Ellis Island. No free ride. No handouts. They supported each other and became US citizens through legal means.
    I have posted to this effect before. I have no issue with anyone who wishes to come the the USA to live the American dream legally, better themselves via the freedom to decide a career and work hard at it, and to rear children in a free country (until the socialist liberals attempt to "change" things, but that is for another thread...) while paying their way...

    Now back to topic... This is why not enforcing immigration laws will create a situation in which the safety of American citizens will be in jeopardy. Allowing incarcerated criminals to roam freely to carry out orders to kill and torture is not what I call responsible behavior. They will end up here in this country committing crimes such as robbery, assault, and homicide. Eventually being arrested (lucky for them), and incarcerated here in the US adding yet more incurred costs to the already over burdened American taxpayer.

    I'm sure with minimal time and effort they will be rehabilitated and become functional, literate, productive members of the democratic (socialist) party.

    Peace...

    +1 !

    As far as I am concerned the word "racism" has become totally meaningless, because it has become so misused by minorities and the liberal media to get their way when they have no argument. The whole Arizona SB 1070 argument is all based on non existent "racism" by the illegal mexicans, as well as Hussein and his entire administration.

    It has come to the point in this country that if you are white, you cannot criticize any minority for anything without being branded a "racist". A white in this country has basically 2 ways to go. You can tell the truth about minorities and be called a "racist", or else you can be a politically correct liar. Whichever way you go, you'll wind up being one of the 2.

    The blacks and hispanics in this country keep beating the "racism" drum wherever they go. Many of them like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson need "racism" to continue if either of them intend to make a living. It is the same with many of the hispanic rabble rousers. No matter what immigration law we pass or try to enforce, the hispanics will scream "racism". Why is it only the hispanics we have all of this trouble with? You don't see Asians or Germans coming here illegally and causing all of this nonsense. They base their actions on any kind of bull$h!t they can create, such as calling southern Arizona the "new mazatlan". Can't these idiot's read a history book? Haven't any of these fools ever heard of the Gadsden Purchase? They never cried and whined about it before, only now because we as a nation are stupid enough to listen to them. You try and give these people any credibility and they'll take advantage and $h!t all over you. I'm sick and tired of listening to all of it.

    As I have said for years, all one has to do when speaking of any minority, is to look at the country of origin if you want a sneak peak of what they'll do here. In many of the Pacific Rim Asian countries and cities they graduate doctors and engineers in quantities far greater than we do. They come to live here and you see the result. Many are practicing physicians, medical researchers, architects, and design engineers. They are educated, and live well and with pride because of it. Look at the hispanics. Mexico is nothing but a filthy, corrupt, disease ridden, impoverished $h!t hole. Do people honestly think they are going to come over here and transform the United States into anything different than what they left behind in mexico?

    Show me one neighborhood, in one city, in one state, in any and all 50 states, where the whites moved out, the hispanics or blacks moved in, and it got better. There isn't one, and they'll never be one, period. Yes, I know stating that fact makes me a "racist". I've got zero problem with being called that anymore. As I said, it's better than being a politically correct liar. I can get that on most any channel or newspaper in this country. Bill T.

    The fact is that prior to WWI the government would turn back people that came to our shores that had medical problems or were potential drains on the economy. Families were split up with wives, husband and sometimes children being turned away for various reasons. My maternal grandmother came here through NY and was not allowed to disembark from the ship till she and my grandfather were married.
    People were welcomed because they wanted to be Americans.
    Now the ones welcomed are those that want to create diversity in our country.
    Lets get back to being American first. Remember your past but go to your future.

    PRO-LIFE FROM CONCEPTION TO NATURAL DEATH
