DALLAS, Feb. 22. – A four year old boy killed his younger brother with the gun after shooting according to his mother, according to the opinion issued today by the Police Department Killen community, north of Austin, Texas.

Police on Wednesday released the results of the investigation into the death of Kenneth Jordan Jones of three years, registered on 18 February, when the victim and his brother were in his mother’s bedroom.

According to investigators, the mother was in another room when she heard a gunshot and went to his room where she found Jordan with a gunshot wound to the upper chest and neck.

The woman had placed a nine-millimeter pistol in a closet, out of the reach of children, but somehow the little four-year gained access to the gun and shot his brother.

Police have not charged anyone so far, while the child’s name that fired the gun will not be released because he is a minor.

Juarez and Sinaloa cartels active in five Colorado cities.

A report from the US Department of Justice National Drug Intelligence Center, which says the Juarez and Sinaloa cartels are active in five Colorado cities.

Those cities are Denver, Boulder, Colorado Springs, Grand Junction, and Longmont.

Sylvia Longmire, author of the book “Cartel: The Coming Invasion of Mexico‘s Drug Wars,” says the cartels mainly operate under the radar in Colorado, although they are believed to be responsible for much of the ongoing violence plaguing the border.

“What’s happening along the border is crucial for folks in Denver to understand because the cartels have a physical presence in Denver and they are trafficking the majority of the drugs that are circulating throughout the city,” Longmire said.

Longmire is a retired Air Force captain and former Special Agent with the Air Force Office of Special Investigations. Longmire spent six years as a senior intelligence analyst in California who focused on Mexican drug trafficking organizations and border violence issues.

The cartels in the Denver metro area may not be directly involved in street-level drug sales, Longmire says, but they do control the distribution and management aspects of the drug trade in the city.

“They are providing drugs to local gang members, they are taking care of the distribution of drugs to warehouses, to stash houses throughout different communities in Denver, making sure that they are cut, re-packaged, then sent out to smaller communities outside of the Denver area,” Longmire said.

Longmire says Denver is strategically located because of the highway system. Drugs are often smuggled up I-25 from El Paso, Texas, placed in stash houses throughout the metro area, and then distributed to other cities and states.

“It’s just the way Denver is laid out that makes a perfect system for transporting drugs by private vehicles, commercial vehicles. It’s one of the top 7 hubs for drug trafficking activity,” Longmire said.

The Mexican city directly across from El Paso, Texas, Ciudad Juarez, has been hit especially hard by cartel violence in recent years, averaging 8 drug-related murders a day. Officials estimate since 2006, drug violence has killed more than 41-thousand people in Mexico, roughly the population of Littleton.

In March, an Aurora man became a victim of the violence when he was shot 80 times in front of his wife Tania and their young son. Jake, a US citizen, had moved his family to Mexico as his wife Tania applied for her green card. Tania and their son now live in Colorado, where Jake was buried.

In February, cartel members ambushed two US ICE agents on the highway between Mexico City and Monterrey. One of the agents was shot and killed. They were in Mexico helping deal with the violence.

“It’s a vicious, vicious cycle but what is happening there and happening here is very interconnected, Longmire said.

Occasionally, drug violence does flare up in Colorado. In September, Westminster Police began searching for a suspected Mexican cartel member believed to be responsible for a murder at the Toscana Apartment Complex.
A man was found dead inside his apartment. Police say the man was in the US illegally and was believed to be a member of a drug trafficking organization.

Jose Manuel Martinez-Adame is wanted for first degree murder. Martinez-Adame was given the name “Vampie” because his teeth are sharpened to look like a vampire.
Martinez-Adame was also believed to be in the United States illegally after being recently deported. Westminster Police say he has been arrested in the US multiple times., and may have since fled back to Mexico.

Gang activity is diverse in Austin,Bloods or Crips but the Bandidos!

Gang activity is diverse in Austin. Street gangs like the Bloods or Crips are loosely affiliated and don’t have a set hierarchy.

The Bandidos motorcycle gang and the Mexican Mafia prison gang, however, have set chains of command and power structures, according to police. In addition, there’s the up-and-coming Texas prison gang Tango Blast, which police officials say is becoming more of a cohesive force.

But they’re all doing the same thing: selling cocaine, marijuana, heroin and methamphetamine brought to the U.S. by Mexican cartels, police and federal officials say.

“A lot of the street sales (of drugs) around the country are supplied by Mexican cartels,” said Greg Thrash, who heads the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration‘s Austin office. That includes about 90 percent of America’s cocaine and most of its methamphetamine.

Thrash said that his agency’s investigations into Mexican cartels often uncover where their drugs wind up. He said that drugs can change hands several times, between several middlemen and wholesalers, between the cartels and street gangs. In other cases, the cartels deal directly with gangs, he said.

Harrell’s interview with the Austin teen was part of a summer initiative aimed at coming up with a more accurate number of how many gang members are in Austin and gaining “street intelligence,” said police Sgt. Lester Vanzura.

Vanzura said, the officers acquire new information each day and are developing sources who can provide information about higher-up gang members, violent crimes or large drug deals.

Baker said, officers look at trends along the border as guidance for what may come to Austin. His concern, among the escalating crimes, is juvenile gang members.

Police found an increase of about 14 percent in documented youth gang members, from 658 in July 2010 to 748 this July. Juvenile members are mostly involved with graffiti, which officers said is on the rise, and with displaying their gang’s colors.

Baker said that juvenile gang membership nationwide may be on the rise again after a dip in the 1980s, perhaps fueled by cartel money that kids see as an easy way to make cash. But older gang members like to use kids in their operations because the juvenile justice system is more lenient, he said.

“They’re getting into situations they don’t understand,” Baker said. “They don’t know who they’re dealing with in the cartels. And then it’s hard for these kids to get out.”

Gangs in Austin

The extreme violence on the Mexican side of the border — which has included mass killings and public executions of police officers and elected officials — has been over the fight to control the points of entry gangs use to export drugs into the United States. That’s why cities in Texas haven’t seen the killings and other crimes that have plagued Mexico, Baker said.

“You don’t have to fight over entry points up here,” said police Lt. Norris McKenzie, who works in the department’s gang suppression and major crimes units. “You fight over ‘I didn’t get paid,’ or ‘somebody stole my dope.’\u2009”

Baker said he doesn’t think the increases seen in the Hispanic population in Texas and the United States have anything to do with increased drug cartel activity. But he said he’s concerned about what might happen when the cartels get territorial and decide to lock down a market like Austin — or when the local gangs start fighting over their drug supplies.
