"La Familia" Cartel Makes Mexico An Offer
La Familia cartel in Mexico is tired of being blamed for the massive violence in Mexico. It says it's not to blame. So it's making Mexico an offer. It's calling a truce on all criminal activity for the month of January.
In the one-page message, distributed by e-mail and in some cities door by door, the gang claims it will halt all crime activity during January to demonstrate that the cartel "is not responsible for the criminal acts federal authorities are reporting to the media."
Three weeks ago, Mexico said La Familia had been totally dismemebered and turned from drugs to robberies to make money. For Christmas, La Familia sent out a message saying Federal Police and the Zetas were behind the violence.
“La Familia Michoacana disavows it self of all criminal acts that occurred in the state of Michoacán, they are acts done and fabricated by the Federal Police. They seem to be only dedicated to making false claims and then killing those they implicate in crimes.”
