LAREDO — In Mexico, they call him “El Tigrillo,” a kind of wildcat, and sing his praises, ranking him among those of the country's top drug lords.

If this was a movie he would be deep cover law enforcement. Sadly, it is not a movie

We need a new “open season” on these guys and on gangs in general! I keep watchin’ “Gangland” on cable, and get more and more pi$$ed off with each show!

Funny, But his story does sound like a cover operatives would put out to disguise law enforcement investigations. I know what you mean about the story sounding like a “movie plot”. I had the same immediate thought as you did!

Too bad it isn’t a “Wanted DEAD or ALIVE” poster. I’d be heading down to the border and I’d bet a few hundred other Texas would be doing the same. This guy would run and never return, or be DOA.

“Over the past 20 years, Edgar Valdez Villarreal, a 36-year-old U.S. citizen born in South Texas, has gone from high school jock to potential Mexican drug cartel boss”

THIS is what the anchor baby situation gets us! He may be a ‘citizen’, but he is no AMERICAN.

23 dead in riot at Mexican prison

Mexico City, Mexico (CNN) — At least 23 prisoners were killed and 20 injured in a prison riot Wednesday in the northern Mexican state of Durango, state officials said.

7 bodies found in abandoned cars in south Mexico

ACAPULCO, Mexico — Mexican authorities found seven corpses in two abandoned cars along with written messages referring to drug cartels, state police said Wednesday.

The bullet-riddled bodies of three men were inside a car left beside the highway between the resort communities of Acapulco and Zihuatanejo on Wednesday morning, police in the Pacific coast state of Guerrero said.

Police did not release the message left with the bodies, but said it referred to drug cartels.

Late Tuesday night, state police found the bodies of four young men in an abandoned car near a hotel in Guerrero’s capital, Chilpancingo. A police report said the men appeared to have been asphyxiated by plastic tape covering their faces.

A written message left on the windshield accused them of betraying the brothers who lead the Beltran Leyva cartel, police said Wednesday.

Alive. The Zetas might give you something for “La Barbie” dead, but it would be tricky to collect.
