No explanation for police chief missing in Mexico
NUEVO LAREDO, Mexico (AP) — In one of Mexico’s most violent border cities, no one is saying what happened to Police Chief Roberto Balmori Garza.
It’s been a week since he went missing from Nuevo Laredo and the local news media have reported nothing, even after two of his brothers showed up murdered in a neighboring state on Feb. 17. One of them was an agent for the federal Attorney General’s Office.
City spokesman Juan Jose Zarate said the local government has no confirmation that Balmori Garza disappeared, only that he has not come to work.
He said the mayor, Benjamin Galvan Gomez, is still waiting for the chief to show up.
“That’s why we’ve put out absolutely no statement,” Zarate said.

The comments on the original piece from The Chronicle are about what you would expect from a place that is as highly saturated with ILLEGALS and the bleeding heart Libtards that support them.
Some of the comments are fairly decent, and quite to the point; don’t look for this guy to turn up alive anywhere, it’s just not going to happen. He has *gone missing* in a part of Mexico that is tightly controlled by Los Zetas. They are not known for holding Law Enforcement people hostage for ransom.
I’m only guessing on this but I would imagine that some might think the Chief may have gone over to *the other side* and that’s why he has disappeared. To those that would think so; you would more than likely be wrong. If Police Chief Roberto Balmori Garza had turned to *the dark side* he wouldn’t be missing, he would be getting a lot of money for his position of power and what that power could do to help Los Zetas.
Corruption in Mexico is so rampant that if an official can’t be *bought off* he simply disappears and someone else takes his place, and it doesn’t take too long for the idea to sink in that if you’re the new Chief, and you don’t *play ball* with the cartels, you too are quite likely to never be heard from again.
So, since we ALL know that Mexico is a corrupt dung heap, why then do we see this story and WHY hasn’t the lame-stream media picked up on it?
Mexican lawmakers have sent a demand for a list of gun owners in four border states to the United States Senate – as part of a push for tougher gun laws in their northern neighbor. Mexico has been rocked by an ongoing drug war that has left thousands dead.
The demand involves a registry for the states of California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas. While California has some registration provisions in state law, the other three states do not. This comes on the heels of a push by the Caribbean Community for the inclusion of small arms in a proposed Arms Trade Treaty at the United States.
Gun owners in Arizona interviewed by KPHO expressed sharp disapproval of the demand, with some making references to Operation Fast & Furious, an ATF operation that allowed nearly 2,000 firearms to fall into the hands of Mexican drug cartels.

Let me make this VERY clear for those that have never lived in a U.S. border state; there are places where the Rio Grande delineates our border, but there are many other areas of the border that have no delineation other than a broken down barbed wire fence and the only even remotely looking like Border Security is a rancher with a rifle trying to defend what he owns.
I have a very special message for the Mexican government, and our own government too if they think that I am going to play this game; the dangers faced by U.S. citizens in Border STATES is very real, so pay attention you silly bastards, I HAVE GUNS, I know how to use them. If you want them, COME AND TAKE THEM!
Can’t get much plainer than that, and along these same lines, Janet Napolitano tells us The Border s more secure than ever.
This is one of the biggest BULL SHIT lies in the news today. Ask the people, Americans that live on the border, ask them how secure it is.
It’s NOT secure! Our border with Mexico is porous, weak and seriously undefended, and with looming cuts to Border Patrol it’s only going to get worse. See these links and I think you’ll agree.
I’m not saying that the reason a few numbers are down is because Border Patrol Agents are disheartened and unmotivated, but think of this; USBP has the most thankless job there is, the people they DO arrest and deport are back here before the Agents that work deportation duty are, the Agents are getting their pay massively cut and they WILL see the same ILLEGALS crossing the border again.
Think about all of this America, and then ask yourselves; how long before we have Police Chiefs, USBP Agents, rank and file Police officers and innocent civilians that either come up missing or shot dead as the violence crosses over into the United States?
And the Libtards wonder WHY so many of us, Law Enforcement and Civilians, as so well armed.
