Video translation is as follows:
A very good evening to all the followers. An apology for the momentarily loss of transmission. Well, we find ourselves touring the city which looks literally empty and without any surveillance by police corporations. A few minutes ago we went by the Comisión Estatal de Seguridad (State Security Commission). And it’s heavily guarded with a heavy security outside taking care of the main entrance.
This is a result of the threats and attack, that were directed against the police organizations. It is said that there is a code red alert throughout the state. And the agents were told not to go out in public. But to stay in the barracks. And well, there is no surveillance in the city streets.

We’ve traveled now a good ways from the south east end of this city to what is the central western part of this metropolis. And as you can see there are no police patrols or any transit agents to be seen anywhere.
Law Enforcement from the Police Commission were told to remain in the barracks. As I previously mentioned we went by the CES (Comisión Estatal de Seguridad) facilities, which is heavily guarded.
As a consequence this is the situation, the sad situation that we are living here in the streets of Ciudad Juarez this Tuesday. These attacks came after the Attorney General was threatened. Well, against the Ministerial Police who were inside a state government building.
It generated a series of attacks, vehicles ignited, fires within different sectors of the city, the threats against paramedics. And well, this is the situation, this is the reality today in Juarez.
