Translated by Fulano from a news article in El Mexicano

TIJUANA - "El Morrito," 17 years old and he has already killed nine people in the last few months in Tijuana. His last victim is a young drug dealer in an rival group, said Abel Galván Gallardo, head of the Deputy Prosecutor Against Organized Crime in the State Attorney General's office.

Tijuana municipal police arrested him last Saturday night, after a report of a person being murdered inside the "La Ruta" bar, located on calle Sexta (Sixth Street) in downtown Tijuana.

His name in Antonio, although in the street drug world in Tijuana, he is only known for his nickname, according to what he told Ministerial police agents from the Homicide Unit.

He was captured together with an adult identified as "El Chapito," but not the El Chapito who operates in the Eastern part of the city, but the one who distributes the drug crystal in the Zona Norte of Tijuana, said Galván Gallardo.

This night, the police seized a .45 caliber and 9 millimeter pistol, which they had used in 10 murders. The minor said that he was directly involved "in eight, probably," plus the murder in the bar.

The murders "were this year and in 2012," he said.

The minor and "El Chapito," were inside the bar when they shot the owner's son, Ismael Valle, 25-years old, who died while another person was wounded by a bullet.

The dead man was "part of a band of small time drug distributors (in the Eastern part of the city) and those arrested are in a rival band," said Galván Gallardo.

Ismael Valle was in a group led by a man called "El Atlantis," said the official.

As to "El Morrito," due to his age, he was sent to the Public Prosecutor for Adolescents, meanwhile the adult is in the La Mesa prison and is awaiting trial before a criminal judge.

Yeah, that’s pretty bad stuff alright, but after having read several of this blogger’s other posts, I can’t help but notice that he rarely has much good to say about Baja California.
At this point in time, I’m a LOT more concerned about the rampant violence that takes place north of the border.

I guess that in an era when kids are regularly marching into American schools and blowing away their classmates with assault weapons, and local murders have become a daily feature on so many San Diego news broadcasts that they are now commonplace, it is always more comforting to think that someone else doing the same type of thing in another country is the only monster on the screen. Wake up America …it is, sadly, our dear nation that has become one of the most potentially deadly of them all. :-(

I guess one can say whatever comes to mind. It takes a little more effort to back up your statements with actual figures. The actual homicide rate reported for the entire state of Baja California in 2011 was 24.2 per 100,000 population. The actual homicide rate reported for the entire state of California was 4.8 per 100,000. So, Baja California has five times the murder rate as its northern neighbor, and you are telling us "our dear nation... has become one of the most potentially deadly of them all."

Get real.
