There are no surenos in El Paso, plain and simple. This is just an excuse to justify overbearing police work.

Sorry, there are no gangs in El Paso. It's all a figment of your imagination. I know this is true because when I was working there and we tried to crack down on gang activity I was told specifically by people that were (and in one case still is) power brokers in El Paso that they were just kids being kids and that we were harassing kids. Nope, you don't have a gang problem. It's all just a figment of your imagination. Go about your business.

These 'kids' are the same ones that the Cartel uses as mules to move the drugs across the border. The EP bar scene is where the up-and-coming go for kicks and thrills. Then they see the power in the cocaine. Then they have power struggles for turf. They are noticed and watched by the undergound powers that be and indoctrinated to run with the devil. People! WAKE UP!!!

Line them all up across from each other, give each one a knife and when the the word is given let them fight and the last group standing wins.

Since comments are blocked on the story about the video of a killing of police in Juarez I'll make my comment here.Why is EPT blocking comments at all,do they just believe in 1st amendment rights for themselves? How do you write a story about a video and not even show the video?

Ive always considered El Paso to be a safe place and have never felt scared i know were one of the safest city but each day that passes im more unsecure and a little more scared, i live in sanelizario a couple of streets down the river seperating us from juarez, and whenever im ready to fall asleep i hear a loud bang my heart stops, at the end its just the neighbor throwing somthing heavy out or some dogs roaming around knocking things down. Theres times when the sun goes down and theres a car passing slowly with there head lights off and i just stare hoping no one pulls a gun out, it may just be paranoia, and i might be thinking about it a lot, but i had never been so unsecure in my life before.

Its time for the citizens to arm themselves. This would cause more problems? Well, then FBI, CIA and all the rest...'cut it in the bud' before it becomes reality in the U.S.

"We see two possibilities," Cordero said. "They can work in harmony or they can do what the cartels are doing in Juárez, fight for the control of the plaza, in this case El Paso."

So, how are they getting the drugs across?
That's the big question isn't it?
If you stop the flow, you stop the cartel.....because SUPPOSEDLY they are fighting over the trade routes?

There must be a major route through El Paso and nobody seems to know where it is? And it's not an underground tunnel unless the cartels figured some way to avoid the water table...which I doubt.

Someone needs to do some inside investigations.
I have a hard time believing that nobody knows how the drugs are getting across.

You can have all the demand you want, but without supply, you got nothing.

El Paso is still a nice place to live in. We're growing! Just have a few cucarrachas to deal with.

The Federal Gov't should treat theses gang members as Terrorist and treat them as such through our judicial system. To treat them as common petty criminals is a mockery to all citizens. Send them to GITMO or other countries where the other countries could question them by their own style.

El Paso has changed drastically. Just in my neighborhood I now have neighbors from Juarez on the entire block! The yards look bad since they won't water the yards because water is too expensive! They have nice cars but all with plates from Mexico. They have sons that have been killed in the violence in Juarez.
