- Our Mexican border is hiding information about cartel war violence away from us.
- Four cartel gunmen were killed yesterday in a firefight that went through 16 neighborhoods.
- Previously eight cartel gunmen were killed in recent gunfights.
- The border area increasingly becomes worse after the cartel gravesite was found just a few yards away from the Texas border.
Once again the government in this border state continues to manipulate information in order to minimize the scope of the violence and the true number of casualties left by the regular gun battles in this city.
On Tuesday, Mexican authorities and cartel gunmen faced off in yet another firefight that began as a chase through Puerto Rico and Seccion 16 neighborhoods and ended in Hacienda del Puente neighborhood. The firefight killed four gunmen, however, the news release provided by the Tamaulipas government provides an alternate version of events that omits the casualties. The news release by the government instead focuses on the arrest of a cartel gunman and the seizure of weapons.
The omission by the Tamaulipas government comes just days after as Breitbart Texas previously reported, the entity will not provide consistent information in relation to a series of gun battles in this border city. Most recently those firefights have left 8 gunmen dead. Government officials continue to remain silent about a recent firefight in the border city of Nuevo Laredo that killed six Los Zetas cartel gunmen who burned alive when a grenade went off inside their SUV.
The Tamaulipas government also tried to cover up a clandestine narco-gravesite east of this city, not far from the Rio Grande. As Breitbart Texas previously reported, the gravesite known as “The Kitchen” was an area where cartel members would incinerate their victims and then disperse the ashes.
In their efforts to cover up the gravesite, the Tamaulipas government claimed that forensic experts could not determine if the bones found in the area were human or animal bones.
