51  DBMA Espanol / Espanol Discussion / Re: WSJ: Mexico's masked vigilantes defy drug gangs on: February 11, 2013, 12:19:04 AM

AYUTLA, Mexico—Masked men, rifles slung over their shoulders, stand guard on a lonely rural road, checking IDs and questioning travelers. They wear no uniforms, flash no badges, but they are the law here now.

A dozen villages in the area have risen up in armed revolt against local drug traffickers that have terrorized the region and a government that residents say is incapable of protecting them from organized crime.

 
Ranchers in Tecoanapa, near Ayutla, voted Sunday in favor of having local militiamen provide security.
..
The villages in the hilly southern Mexican state of Guerrero now forbid the Mexican army and state and federal police from entering. Ragtag militias carrying a motley arsenal of machetes, old hunting rifles and the occasional AR-15 semiautomatic rifle control the towns. Strangers aren't allowed entry. There is a 10 p.m. curfew. More than 50 prisoners, accused of being in drug gangs, sit in makeshift jails. Their fates hinge on public trials that began Thursday when the accused were arraigned before villagers, who will act as judge and jury.
This has always been the only way law enforcement works effectively. Otherwise corruption exists and you can bet the locals know exactly what is going on and are there when things are actually happening. Police as a whole should cease to exist. They just aren't the best way. People being responsible for themselves is the best way.

Yes. See Graham v. Connor.

Since you're so smart.... "Graham's argument that it was error to require him to prove that the allegedly excessive force was applied maliciously and sadistically to cause harm, and holding that a reasonable jury applying the Johnson v. Glick test to his evidence could not find that the force applied was constitutionally excessive."

Do you mind explaining for those of us that aren't quite as bright as you are, what isn't "constitutionally excessive" about having 60+ rounds fired at you when you are working and minding your own business?

Enquiring minds want to know cartel boy.

Yes Guro....if it isn't attempted murder and bad marksmanship... I don't know what is.

GM.... seriously? Your position on this one is indefensable. You're way out of line on both accounts.
54  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Evil in Connecticut and elsewhere on: February 10, 2013, 01:12:58 AM
Well, not everyone can measure up to the high standards of Mexican law enforcement.

Maybe it is the amount of practice that we get. I am certain when we put thirty rounds downrange, we score more than two hits, especially against unarmed targets, if we were to shoot at unarmed targets... then again, that's kind of my question. Why would you? They have a problem identifying who it is they actually are shooting at before taking the safety off of their weapon, drawing a bead, and engaging? I particularly like how they said that was an accident. They should be up on attempted murder charges in all three shootings.
55  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Dorner on: February 09, 2013, 09:35:31 PM

I have been busy in Mexico. Very busy. I can actually say the same of anyone that has been subjected to years in the law enforcement environment. A good example of that would be the two unarmed women that were not threatening anyone and were fired upon repeatedly by the police. Last time I checked, it is our job to arrest people, not execute them. Maybe I missed the memo.

57  Politics, Religion, Science, Culture and Humanities / Politics & Religion / Re: We the Well-armed People (Gun rights stuff ) on: December 17, 2012, 07:11:50 PM
Make no question about it. Gun control is about government control of citizens, given away by people that believe the world can be a "safe" place.

Safety is an illusion. It simply doesn't exist.
Firearms are about being able to inflict violence in order to exert control. That is why the police and military have them.

Gun control advocates will throw every insult and excuse under the sun at people that see the wisdom in being able to protect oneself. They will say things like "real men don't need to hide behind a gun," but they expect their police to have them, "thirty round magazines aren't needed to hunt deer," and "guns kill."

These same liberals never want to confront the argument that many dictators around the world have killed the same people they were supposed to protect, with a body-count that tallies in the hundreds of millions of innocents killed. We have seen this same lesson repeated throughout history time and time again, yet they choose to ignore it.

Throughout the course of mankind, there has only ever been one pertinent question in regard to freedom: "Can my violence conquer your violence?"

Every shred of freedom that has ever existed has depended upon the ability to inflict violence if necessary. With examples like Stalin, Hitler, Kim il Sung, Kim Jong Il, Pol Pot, Mao, Castro, Amin, Pinochet, Taylor, and many, many others, we would be ill advised to forgo our inalienable right to defend ourselves from anyone, especially those that wield power simply because others "think" the world can be made into a safe place to live.

Gun control MUST be resisted at any and all costs! History has shown us as much.

61  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Prayer and Daily Expression of Gratitude on: October 31, 2012, 08:42:07 PM
Is some place, far away, reaching for a star. Hard to work so hard for something, to risk one's life for it, to even kill for it if necessary, knowing that at any minute, it could all collapse.
You have to REALLY believe in yourself and what you are doing. And the worst part is even if you really are the best, something decades ago could topple it all in an instant.
I hate my past. I hate not knowing. Even to me, saying that I showed up and did my best is just chickenshit. There is no try. There are only "did," and "did not." God, I hope I "did." Please. I don't ask for so much You know.
62  DBMA Espanol / Espanol Discussion / Re: Mexico on: October 29, 2012, 09:34:13 PM


The quarter will also see the inauguration of Mexico's next president, Enrique Pena Nieto, on Dec. 1. Pena Nieto has discussed plans to reduce overall violence by 50 percent in the first year of his presidency by creating a national gendarmerie, transferring military troops to the federal police and honing the military's focus on violent crimes. Whether those plans will be pursued remains to be seen, and any significant shifts in military and law enforcement policies probably will not occur until 2013.
 


I am certain they are taking Nieto's approach to a national gendarmerie very seriously.
Generally, many of the Municipal and Ministerial police are aligned with organized crime, especially the Municipales. They call them Polizetas and there is much truth to it.
As of late, they are changing all of the police and or agents here to being "Acreditables" which is trained more or less in SWAT tactics, even at the municipal level, but more importantly, each needing to put in their training at one of a few select military bases and pass extensive confidence tests in addition to polygraph tests.
At the end of that, they will be sent back to their respective bases, or if working at a State or Federal level, will be sent to one of three groups depending upon their level of education and or specialty; be it Operativos, Investigaciones, or Tacticos... the latter two requiring at least a Bachelors degree or Masters degree respectively.

There is much to be done in the way of combatting corruption, but it is easy to say that the selection process just got much steeper, and that even as this is being typed, there are former police officers being fired in droves; of which, I am certain when Nieto starts spending 60% of the budget on combatting this war, and that little of that money being reinvested in the economy, that the former agents and officers will seek work at the hands of the cartels. We will have to wait and see how that goes.

On other levels, the amount of cooperation between military, state, and federal agencies has been improving and often, the three even work on missions together.

Things are getting worse in Mexico, but at the same time, it is leading to Mexico becoming a better country with less lawlessness. It is the course that needs to be followed and IMO Nieto is correct in his approach.

I think that everyone that supports Obama is a dick, but then, that´s me.

I have zero heart.

Basically, point being; It seems the bigger the tribe grows, that to classify someone as a dick because they don´t hold the same views as others as a result of their life experiences to me, seems small. Maybe I am wrong. I know that I am newer than most, so, who am I to say?

I don´t know if I will be able to go to gatherings in the US anymore for quite some time. I am basically married to Mexico now. Either way, I want to thank everyone for teaching me, for fighting me, and wish you the best. I´ll continue training here and fight with Guro Sanchez when work allows for it. I´m more than willing to fight and get lots of training every single day.
Perhaps the DBMA Distance program for military and law enforcement would be an option so I could start growing the tribe here.
Either way, miss you guys.

I like the idea of a pro photographer... great pics. I like C Yo Dog´s idea too of having other fighters take photos. I don´t think the audience always gets why the rules are what they are.

Having said that, I almost certainly won´t be making this Open due to work. I wish it weren´t so, but it is what it is. I hope to have some time off in a year. We´ll see.

Best of luck to everyone.

A friend in Mexico City is bitching that AMLO got cheated, but I suspect that's just sour grapes.  Witness how AMLO comported himself the last time around!   Too bad PAN put forth such a weak candidate.

There is evidence that substantiates that PRI bought the vote... $500 to 1000 (peso) giftcards at Soriana (think Target) in the event that PRI won. Before the elections, PRI had distributed the giftcards to people only when the person had presented the IFE (Mexican Identification, also necessary to cast a vote), and had promised to vote for PRI. When the votes were tallied, if PRI won, the cards at that point, would be validated, and the voters could then cash in on the amounts.

It is necessary to say, that like all multi party systems (and the inherent problems with them, such as in Europe), PRI still enjoys a substantial amount of support from hardline supporters, but also from disenchanted members of PAN, the hardline conservatives (the weakest party of the three). PRD members would never vote for PRI, and there is no doubt that the offer of monies to the general public put the PRI out in front.

I myself support PRI, my fiance (a liberal), doesn´t support them at all. The facts are what they are.

A link to a letter that Soriana has released in regard to the cards. The mere fact that the cards exist speaks volumes. http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10150912401037513&set=o.231776320252115&type=1&theater

81  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Justice and Politicians on: July 04, 2012, 10:22:47 AM
Politely, I ask; when aren´t politics used to drive prosecutions? I say this because there are several examples of politics and justice tied together, as well as examples of crimes not being prosecuted.
You´re all aware of several examples of both, so no need to beat a dead horse with examples.
To me, I think it a serious flaw to have the justice system and politics tied together.

Edit: I should clarify... I find selective enforcement of the law to be a serious error whenever it is applied, especially in regard to politics. Ity erodes the moral fabric of which the justice system must be comprised.

Muy buenas tardes a todos ustedes. Estoy ya en Zacatecas. Pienso radicar aquí de manera permanente. La siguiente semana espero poder ver al Gurú Mauricio Sanchez, en el D.F., y poder entrenar con él por algunas ocasiones, durante el año. Yo estaba entrenando con el clan de NoHo  durante los últimos tres años, y durante el último encuentro de la Tribu, obtuve el título de "Dog" y estoy buscando compañeros interesados para poder entrenar conmigo aquí en Zacatecas; Ya tengo un lugar pensado para poder hacerlo. Así  mismo ya estoy entrenando Judo y Karate. En EUA yo estuve entrenando bajo el Sensei Gokor Chivichian en Judo y Sambo. Tengo un especial interés en no solamente mantener mi nivel de entrenamiento, sino poder aumentarlo, por lo que agradecería cualquier sugerencia tanto de Guru Crafty y Guru Sanchez. Espero la siguiente semana poder platicar personalmente con Gurú Sánchez en un viaje que tengo pensado realizar al DF.
Tengo algunos asuntos que atender aquí en México, lo que me mantendrán mucho tiempo aquí. Estoy muy interesado en ayudar a aumentar el sistema de Hermanos de Perro en México. Guru Crafty, Guru Sanchéz, por favor, si puedo ayudar en esto, avísenme.

83  Politics, Religion, Science, Culture and Humanities / Politics & Religion / Beheadings in Zacatecas on: June 22, 2012, 09:44:45 PM
I've lived and worked in Mexico for a while now and spent a good amount of time in most of the country.

Although there is violence in Zacatecas due to its proximity to Durango, Chihuahua, Nuevo Leon, Tamaulipas, etc., and also due to the logistical support the main corridor provides when transporting arms and narcotics, beheadings in Zacatecas are unusual: http://zacatecasonline.com.mx/noticias/policia/23109-cabezas-humanas-mercado.html

It is also unusual that the cartel (presumably Zetas), shot down a helicopter close to Jerez not long ago. They say that it was a mechanical failure, but there are rumors that the bird was shot down. Either way, more activity than usual going on: http://www.freefirezone.org/cgi-bin/archivedstory.pl?whichstory=2319

They seem to be ramping up activity within the region. I expect much to be changing in Mexico this year. The Zetas and Mara Salva Trucha which had been at war with each other for years have had training relations together near the suothern border close to Guatemala. Change is in the wind.
