Many unanswered questions which don't add up for the law enforcement in Mexico. The shoot out #1 in the History of Violence is inconclusive. Next #2 doesn't sound right because of what residents in the neighborhood say. Last #3 has conflicting stories from the family and again law enforcement.

Areas such as this are perfect ambush scenarios. Lookouts can see all movement for miles giving enough time to prepare and block reinforcements.

Lookouts can give strength of reinforcement, type of vehicles, path they are taking, weapons, support of the local neighborhood in silence of activities, and much more could be deduced.

These attacks could be deadly and planned. A lone gunman could paralyze the response. A well placed IED could destroy or cause fatalities on an ill prepared response. More targeted attacks against the law enforcement who are the biggest crooks.

The attacks so far have been very limited in scope to law enforcement. These attacks are the result of the criminal element in law enforcement.

Hurry up Mexico and fix the corruption. Many of the US citizens want to go buy their tequila. We USA citizens used to like to go eat over in Juarez. We also liked to shop and visit the disco scene.

Until the situation is stable in Mexico things will remain the same.

You are right too many unanswered questions. But in defence of everyone the family isn't going to admit to the press if the guy was involved in anything. The Police arent going to make a statement to the press that we shot the wrong guy. and the news paper makes more mistakes and gets more facts wrong. I question the value of a story like this in the first place, at least like it was written.
