Mayor Believes Some Victims are Recent Retail Traffickers
Francisco Luján writes this morning in Norte that Juarez Mayor José Reyes Ferriz, interviewed yesterday about the new wave of killings in Juarez, indicated he believes many of the victims are gang members recently recruited to sell drugs at retail prices in Juarez. Rival gangs are trying to corner the market of retail drug sales in various parts of the city, recruiting 17-24 year old men to participate. When rival gangs disputing the same territory find out, they order them killed.
