Federal police blame President Andrés Manuel López Obrador for cartels becoming more dangerous and tempting.
The Gulf Cartel offers almost $ 2,000 dollars ($ 1,840 dollars, or more than 35 thousand pesos) per month for federal police to join their cause of drug trafficking. This was denounced in an anonymous interview by an element of the police corporation that is in dispute over its disappearance and change to the National Guard promoted by the government of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO).
During the interview for La Jornada, he assures that the government will not give dialogue to negotiate or discuss what is being exploited by the drug cartels who are already intervening. And that there are many people from the corporation who have been approached.
He also details that “they are already offering monthly amounts with the Gulf Cartel, and the Cartel Jalisco Nueva Generación. Right now they are offering us 35 thousand pesos ($ 1,840 dollars) to ‘work’ with the Gulf Cartel. In fact I am one of the persons that was able to resign, because I’d rather be with my own people, with whom I was born and grew up with “.
The policeman also denounces that he was one of the survivors of several ambushes, “now I have diabetes, I am hypertensive,” he reveals.
After being questioned about what decision he will take, he says it is too early to decide, “and President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, Mr. Durazo (Secretary of Public Safety) is directly responsible for what befalls my comrades.”
It’s not the first time that they’ve condemned the drug cartels for trying to recruit police to join their ranks of crime. In fact those who started with this strategy were the Cartel Jalisco Nueva Generación (CJNG). Through instant messaging and social media networks organizations have made the call to increase their power, by offering juicy economic sums to join them and their bloody criminal battle.
