Tamaulipas, Mexico government, police officers were carrying out patrols and spotted a black SUV that drew suspicion. Upon spotting the officers, the cartel gunmen tried to drive off while firing their automatic weapons. The chase ended a few blocks later. A video captured by a local resident appears to show a police officer in black firing his rifle four times inside the SUV, giving the impression that he executed the survivors. In the cell phone video, the local resident can be heard yelling, “They are finishing them off.” Leaked photographs from inside the vehicle revealed the bodies of three gunmen.
Though the video has drawn criticism, in border states where corruption has become an integral part of the judicial system, most residents favor a hard line approach by police and military forces.
The Police are taking a hard line on any cartel gunman who fires a weapon at a law enforcement official or soldier. It has proven successful in the border states of Coahuila and Chihuahua–where at one time, cartels had full operational control. Street executions and the like helped push cartels underground and away from high-traffic areas. As a result, drug violence became more targeted with a lower risk of battles harming innocent civilians.
