    Mexican children pictured taking up rifles for community police force after cartel attack


    By Greg Norman | Fox News


    Fox News Flash top headlines for Jan. 29 are here. Check out what's clicking on Foxnews.com.

    Nearly two dozen Mexican children whose fathers, all musicians, were killed last week in an attack blamed on a drug cartel were photographed taking up arms for an indigenous community’s police force.

    Around 20 children, who range in age from 8 to 14 years old, according to the BBC, were depicted holding rifles and carrying out military-style exercises in the town of Chilapa, 200 miles south of Mexico City.

    The boys reportedly have been recruited for Chilapa's community police force. (El Sur Guerrero)

    A total of 10 musicians were killed in an ambush while returning home from a performance — and some of the boys in the photos are believed to be their sons, the BBC added.

    The musicians’ burned bodies were found in two vehicles Friday and the Los Ardillos cartel is being blamed for the violence.

    One of the vehicles containing the bodies was found on a highway while the other was resting at the bottom of the ravine.

    “It was apparently pushed into the ravine on purpose, for which we’ve opened a homicide investigation into the incident,” state government spokesman Roberto Álvarez was quoted by Mexico News Daily as saying.

    The boys are being trained to defend Chilapa from gangs, a group says. (El Sur Guerrero)

    A group that represents local indigenous people told the BBC that the children are being trained to defend Chilapa from gangs. Community police forces are said to be common in the region.

    Local media claimed the photos were taken to send a message to Mexico’s president that there needs to be more security forces sent there.

        Something tells me no one wanted this to be part of a news report.

            You’re absolutely correct. Whenever I hear someone complain about how bad they think things are, I always point out how great of a country America is.

              Twenty kids who’s fathers were killed because they were musicians? Why would a drug cartel be bothered with a mariachi band? More to story? Dan ,any chance in getting them in at Freeport for the youth training program? You’d be s national hero, might make you police chief and mayor of town. Mucho grande hombre.

                Have you ever heard a mariachi band?
                After 2 songs I'd shoot them too.

                  Guns are expensive. But men with guns are cheap.

                    When el Chapo's boys showed up to free his kid and they laid siege to the town the government backed down. It's a shit hole.

                      You can buy the president of Mexico for $100 mil, cash. That means the entire government is corrupt. The army, the police, everybody. That's why we have the 2A. That's why I expect to have parity with the average cop on patrol.

                          Actually I think it was just staged to get a reaction out of the snow flakes of the world .....and pressure Trump to open the flood gates ......

                            Well, maybe I'm the only one so far that actually looked at the pics. See the top pic: I would prefer to be in the rear, rather than in the front with some kid shooting behind me.
                            Staged pic, perhaps?.........

                              I saw that pix ,why I thought training was needed. From the looks the front line is going to be taken out with friendly fire.
                              I’d almost like to see their firing squad...........the victim may be the last guy to survive with skills like this.
