JUAREZ - Police say a leading member of the Azteca gang has been arrested in what may be a step forward in the fight against Juarez violence.

Police say 32-year-old Arturo Gallegos is linked to at least 80 percent of the murders in Juarez since August. They say he's also tied the U.S. Consulate killings in March.

Gallegos, also known as El Farmero, was arrested during a raid. Several other people were also arrested, and police recovered two machine guns, handguns, drugs and one armored car.

The only thing this man will say is "How much is it gonna cost me to get a get out of jail free card?"

He will only do a few days and then after that you won't hear about it again. Alongs he pays the goverment a hefty fine they will let him go.

With a conviction rate of 3% in Mexico, it looks like this clown is going get away, and never get formally tried and incarcerated at all. This is the regular dog and pony show on Calderons part on his failure of his war on drug crimes.

Good deal, I hope they get rid of them all. What they should do is give all the good people in Juarez a fire arm and they will clean that place up in about 2 weeks or less. Look at your History with people w3ho can not protect themselves are the one's who pay the price.

Look at world War 2, theHistory does not lie
