According to the story posted from Milenio, another 4 police
have been arrested in this crime, exposing police kidnapping and murder.
Interesting that the crime was taped in JANUARY and is only exposed in
June… There are numerous links to the actual video online… Including
in the AP story . And this one from Aljazeera.
Sorry I missed posting it earlier…The headline flashed by in El Diario a
few days ago, but I was not able to post at the time. It has now made
mainstream world news. Th speculation is that it might impact the
elections…I’m traveling now and may miss good followup, so please feel
free to post… molly
Nine people in all were killed in Juarez yesterday, March 28. Five were
municipal police off duty at a party in a private home. Though the officers
have not yet been identified in El Diario, from the description of a
witness at the scene, it seems that at least 2 or 3 of the victims were
police women. Three other police were seriously injured in the attack.
Earlier in the evening, two brothers, both employed by the municipal water
department, were shot inside their home, apparently while they were eating
supper. Two other people were killed earlier in the day, including a woman
shot and killed at a public park.
On Tuesday, March 27, 4 people were murdered, including 3 men in one
multiple homicide incident.
I have not tallied the deaths for every day in March—though Diario has
reported several days without homicides, including Monday March 26. The
lastest tally in the news was on March 18 when it was reported that 57
people had been killed so far that month. I believe the total is now about
80. I will attempt a tally sometime later today. I assume there will be
more details on the police shooting forthcoming. Source articles posted
