The state of Jalisco’s “New Generation” drug cartel is no different from the other Mexican crime organizations, in that they will indiscriminately kill law enforcement officers at the drop of a dime.
The group is responsible for a recent string of police killings, including an ambush of military personnel that left 15 dead, including some civilians.
But now the murderous cartel will have to do without their #2, Rubén Oseguera Gonzalez, alias El Menchito, who was nabbed by Mexican special forces and federales in Jalisco.
Gonzalez is the son of of Nemesio Oseguera Cervantes, the ruthless leader of the New Generation cartel.
“Menchito” and his brother Julio Alberto Castillo were arrested with tow AR-15 rifles while driving in a residential neighborhood.
One of the rifles had the initials “JR CJNG02” engraved on one side, and “Menchito” engraved on the other side.
