Crime Intensifies in areas where Los Zetas dominate
Official figures show an increase in robberies, murders and kidnappings in this administration, are unleashed in NL, Tamaulipas, Durango and Michoacan
MEXICO CITY, The states where criminal groups are operating as Los Zetas and La Familia Michoacana had in this administration a significant increase in their crime rates, according to figures provided by the Executive Secretariat of the National Public Security System (SESNSP)
Entities such as Nuevo Leon and Tamaulipas, where federal authorities have reported that they are territories where they operate Los Zetas , have an alarming spike in the number of reported crimes such as robbery.
In this area, Nuevo Leon had in 2006 two thousand 300 reports for 2011, excluding December 19,435 were reported stolen.
The number of homicides in 2006 counted only 180, while in 2011 there were 868 thousand, not counting the murders in December.
Something similar happens in states like Michoacan, Guerrero and Mexico City, where federal officials said working members of La Familia Michoacana.
In Michoacan, the number of reported kidnappings in 2006 were 16 and 116 were reported for 2011. In Guerrero homicides in 2006 were 837 and the end of 2011 were counted two thousand 24.
Three years ago, Nuevo Leon was below the average of robberies and murders that occurred in the country, but today is among the three states, where more is stolen with violence and killing is intentional. The same happened to Tamaulipas and Michoacan, Mexico City and moved to the State of Mexico, to become 2011 in the two states with the highest number of kidnappings, adding almost 250 complaints.
The figures show that in general SESNSP soared nearly double robbery with violence, intentional homicide, extortion and kidnapping.
The detailed data show that this increase happened in late 2006, when Felipe Calderon took office.
In addition this government broke the fight against organized crime.
Even the Fox government in Mexico the crime rate was similar to the phenomenon of other Latin American countries like Brazil and Argentina, which account for his crimes in large cities.
In 2006 and 2007, the Federal District and the State of Mexico lead in robbery, murder, extortion and kidnapping.
Although the capital city and the conurbation and still maintain criminal problems during this term of Felipe Calderón increased by 50 percent the rate of extortion for example, populations up to four times smaller exceeded the number of crimes with these sites.
Nuevo Leon with four times less population than the State of Mexico, led to the last report (November 2011) of SESNSP, 413 voluntary manslaughter rather than the entity’s most populous country (15 million).
In states controlled by Los Zetas and La Familia , the crime rate went to heaven. During this administration, in Nuevo Leon grew tenfold both the number of intentional homicide and robbery with violence.
Before Calderon arrived in Los Pinos, in Durango had zero kidnappings, and now became the site more kidnappings per hundred thousand inhabitants. Through November, there were 63 complaints.
In Tamaulipas and Michoacán increased seven times this offense in six years. 17 and 16 on kidnappings in 2006, ended with almost 120 each in 2011.
If Mexicans today I asked Felipe Calderon a comparison of the national crime rate before and after his term, the president would say, 60 percent more robberies, 90 percent more intentional homicides, 60 percent more kidnappings and 30 percent more extortion.
