Holy crap..........thats it, the malecon is no longer off limits I guess.....I miss Chapo and los Arellanos, yes they were kingpins and did horrible things to people who were against them, but they would never condone this stuff.

Colectivo pericu says two guys from Sinaloa were arrested as suspects after opening fire on Federal Forces. they had more grenades that did not detonate.

Until the government addresses it's massive corruption issue, this violence will continue to escalate undermine any reduction in violence. So sad for La Paz.

Check out Narco Land by Annabel Hernandez. Quite eye opening.

gnu kid should check in. I'm betting everyone using the malecon today will say they feel safe. There is corruption and violence. But the sky isn't falling. Sinaloa cowboys. La Paz is fine. I could be wrong.

What was reported:

Unexploded grenades were found on the malecon in multiple locations apparently reported by a passerby. This followed a previous night of heavy shooting from a home nearby between heavily armed sicarios and marines.

This is not the first time recently that unexploded grenades were found placed in public spaces.

The alleged perpetrators were captured by the marines a short time later on the road to pichelingue, brief exchange of fire and one perp was shot but is okay, both were from Sinaloa I recall and were heavily armed-as usual they were in a white recent model compact car (chevy). Why?

Questions: Who arms cartel scarios with high power military arms and military grenades to infiltrate cartels and create panic/fear for disruption and destabilization.

How is possible that sicarios can travel down the main street and depart down a one way peninsula road heavy armed with military weapons dropping unexploded grenandes - while patrols and transit filters exist everywhere?

Qui bono?
