Police Chief Gunned Down in Jalisco

May 23rd 2012   ·   2 Comments

The deputy police chief of Magdalena, a city in the western Mexican state of Jalisco, was killed by gunmen, prosecutors said.
Victor Manuel Hernandez Sotelo was murdered Monday by two subjects on a motorcycle who rode up to his SUV and opened fire with 9 mm weapons in Guadalajara, the capital of Jalisco.

The police chief’s SUV crashed into a public bus after the shooting and the gunmen escaped, the Jalisco Attorney General’s Office said.

Hernandez Sotelo was shot twice in the head and died instantly, investigators said.

The police chief had driven to Guadalajara for a doctor’s appointment.

Investigators are trying to determine the motive for the killing and whether the police chief had received death threats, the AG’s office said.

About 50,000 people have died in Mexico’s drug war since December 2006, when President Felipe Calderon declared war on the country’s powerful cartels, sending soldiers into the streets to fight criminals.

    Gives FDA the power to order a quarantine of a geographic area, including “prohibiting or restricting the movement of food or of any vehicle being used or that has been used to transport or hold such food within the geographic area.” [This - "that has been used to transport or hold such food" - would mean all cars that have ever brought groceries home or any pickup someone has eaten take-out in, so this means ALL TRANSPORTATION can be shut down under this.] Also, Under this provision, farmers markets and local food sources could be shut down, even if they are not the source of the contamination. The agency can halt all movement of all food in a geographic area.
