Goons on the Loose in Arizona

THE BORDER REPORT

I’ve been dedicating my time over the past few weeks to a new career as the Tucson correspondent for KJZZ, the NPR affiliate in Phoenix, Ariz., so I haven’t given this story the attention it merits. However, I am in Tucson, after all, and not Phoenix, so I don’t know why this story didn’t get that city’s attention. And perhaps, it should have. It’s been nearly three weeks since cops found Martin Alejandro Cota, his severed head lying next to the rest of his body. They’re calling it a drug hit and a message.

Some of you did, anyway. El resto pueden quemarse en el infierno. Culeros.

How’s everyone been? I’m back, though sporadically. More later, I’m headed for the bar, but I wanted to say hi.

THE BORDER REPORT

I love this story from La Polaka. A 60-year-old woman repelled an attack by two kidnappers in Chihuahua yesterday morning. The unidentified woman, who lives with her 69-year-old husband, pulled a gun on the two armed and masked thugs when they broke into her house, shooting and killing one and wounding the second. The dead man had latex gloves and yellow ties in his pockets, suggesting this was a kidnapping attempt. Police found the second man nearby, carrying a nine millimeter pistol. Police also confiscated the victim’s handguns, a 32-mm and a revolver.

THE BORDER REPORT

UPDATE: A good friend in Sasabe, Ariz., tells me the Americans closed the port of entry there early citing bad weather …

That port is only open until 8 p.m., and they closed at about 7:30, she says, but the unexpected closure leaves about 20 people stranded in Sasabe tonight. It’s a town with a population of 25 people, it’s not like there’s a hotel for them to drive to and Tucson’s an hour away. I could be wrong but I’ve never heard of the Americans closing the port because of weather conditions; frankly, I wonder if it wasn’t because of the fight last night in Saric pero quien sabe.
