Mexico Border Town of Ascension Police Force Quits after Attack & Killings … America-Mexico Border Wars, WINNING?

 

The entire new police  force of Ascension, Mexico, has quit after multiple attacks against them. The attacks have killed their police chief and five officers. You know what they say, when the going gets tough, the 20 man police force in Ascension get going. Ascension is southwest of Ciudad Juarez, the border city across from El Paso, Texas, that is one of Mexico’s most violent cities.

An entire 20-man police force resigned in a northern Mexican town after a series of attacks that killed the police chief and five officers over the last three months, state officials said Thursday.

The officers’ resignation Thursday left the 13,000 people of Ascension without local police services, Chihuahua state chief prosecutor Carlos Manuel Salas said. State and federal police have moved in to take over police work, he said.

The mass resignation appeared to be connected to a Tuesday attack by gunmen that killed three of the town’s officers, Salas said.

We can hardly consider this a victory on the Mexic0-US drug gang border wars. The police force had looked to end the killings, kidnappings and extortion that have ravaged the area. The results … not so much.
