if they get too uppity about that, just remind them that someone won the Civil War and it wasn't them.

note: attack does half damage when used by people who live in states that also did not win the Civil War.

life in matamoros for ponchAxis!

Quote:
Hey guys its been a while but I'm back at my own house in Matamoros and I can finally talk about some of the stuff that went down. We had a small scare since my dad got a call that people were asking around for him, so he basically high tailed it to Brownsville just to be safe. I get a call later that I should stay in doors and not go out until an hour later where I'm basically told to pack my bags a week because I'm going to be staying on the other side of the border for some time.

The feeling of leaving your home behind because of danger like this really sucks and I was really bummed out about it. I stayed with a cousin for a few days until we had a house to stay at for the rest of the weekend.

Its a good thing we left too since the day after (last Thursday) a huge firefight went down in the city. From what I've heard they blocked almost the entire downtown with buses and lots of people were hurt after. One of the priests from the Church I used to go to was killed, he was really loved in our community and its sad he had to be killed.

After everything was finally settled, we learned that it was just a false alarm. Even so you don't really play around since we hear stories all the time that once they start looking for you its pretty much a done deal that you have to leave before they get there. Got back home on Monday and have been here since, its kinda calmed down but its still really dangerous.


some of this has been ongoing for long enough in a lot of border cities that people's nerves are just completely fried. god forbid you get any indication the zets are after you, you freak out and basically have to run and hope there's asylum anywhere, especially as an illegal in the states.

So, I saw another article about this whole situation in the paper the other day. An American Citizen (born in San Diego) was apprehened for a series of drug hits. I can't remember the totals, but it was too many. The suspect confessed to being a hitman for the Zetas. He's a fourteen year old kid.

i'm getting more news from monterrey - apparently a casino owner was late on protection money to the narcos, so a bunch of gunmen burst in, doused the place in fuel, probably barricaded the emergency exits, and then set the whole place on fire. while it was open, natch

over fifty people died
