The nephew of Pancho Villa drove the narcos

Mexico Match - .44 Magnum in his belt, sunglasses, baseball cap and tunic ... Villa Carlos Bibiano, nephew of Pancho Villa, a trigger-happy against drug traffickers. Former chief of police in Torreon, a city in northern Mexico as the cousin of his grandfather had besieged in 1914 during the revolution, a retired general will, April 5, functions of Chief Constable of State of Quintana Roo (southeast).

His radical methods cause controversy in a country already overwhelmed by the violence of drug cartels. "When I stop a Zeta or Capo, I kill him, said the strong man of 62 years in an interview published March 13 by the newspaper La Jornada. Why ask? Let him tell Peter what he did. " His comments provoked a scandal.

"It is a criminal confession (...). We have launched an investigation," responded three days later, media Marat Montiel Paredes, second inspector of the National Commission (Mexico) rights of man (NHRC). Although it has not yet received royal assent, Bibiano Villa Carlos has since publicly apologized, but he continues to praise his record: 200 against drug traffickers killed seven officers killed in Torreon, a battlefield between the cartel Los Zetas and the Sinaloa.

In January 2010, upon his arrival in the municipal police of this city, the descendant of Pancho Villa was first attacked police corruption. He fired nearly half the 1,100 police officers, requiring other doping controls while doubling their salaries. Armed to the teeth, he took the head of his troops and embarked on a hunt for criminals.

Her recipe has won over the shock of Governor of Quintana Roo, Roberto Borge Angulo, who charged, on March 12, to slow the growth of organized crime. "The stakes are high in this tourist region, as the crimes of cartels are scaring away tourists," says Maria de Los Angeles, a historian specializing in national security at the Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM).

This strategy seems risky: "The use of excessive force by police, to the detriment of the rule of law, could plunge the country into a spiral of violence," is concerned Ernesto Lopez Portillo, director of the Institute for Security and Democracy. March 22, Cancun, Quintana Roo's tourism jewel, a decapitated body was found with a message: "It's a little gift for you, Villa." But the person repeats his "hand does not tremble." He nevertheless failed to undergo the same tragic end as his ancestor revolutionary, killed in 1923 driving his Dodge.

Whatever drug dealers nicknamed "the old fool" escaped on March 2 in an ambush in Torreon. His pickup truck was riddled armored than 500 bullet holes. Frédéric Saliba Article published in the edition of 02.04.11
