(Matamoros Tamps. – Times Media Mexico) – Early this morning, Thursday, March 9th, five alleged Gulf Cartel hit men were left alive with a message to the public and an apology to the families of those affected. The card was signed by the “Grupo Escorpión,” the armed wing of the Gulf Cartel.
According to the message, these individuals are allegedly responsible for shooting and kidnapping the four Americans, killing two of them and a Mexican woman in Matamoros. They excuse themselves by saying that their five “sicarios” did it without orders from the cartel. On the contrary, they acted under their indiscipline and responsibility for attacking citizens without knowing who they were and without orders from their commanders.
The message reads:
“We strongly condemn the events that took place on March 7th where unfortunately, an innocent working mother died, and 4 American citizens were kidnapped, of which two died, and therefore, we have decided to hand over those involved and directly responsible for the events which at all times, acted under their determination and indiscipline and against the rules that the Gulf Cartel has continuously operated, respecting the life and integrity of the innocent.
The CDG apologizes to the Matamoros society, the relatives of Mrs. Arely, and the affected American individuals and families. The CDG asks the community to be calm because we are committed to ensuring that these errors caused by indicipline are not repeated and that those responsible pay whoever they may be”.

If this is proven, and that these people are responsible for the acts of violence that took place in Matamoros Tamaulipas, it only highlights the great inability of the Lopez Obrador government to operate against organized crime, allowing Mexico to have a country in absolute impunity, where the criminals, not the government, are in charge.
