I am a consultant and analyst with eight years of military law enforcement experience, six years of analytical experience covering Latin America, and over seven years of analytical experience covering Mexican TCOs and border violence issues. This blog is designed to inform readers about current border violence issues and provide analysis on those issues, as well as detailed focus on specific border topics. By applying my knowledge and experience through this blog, I hope to separate the wheat from the chaff...that is, dispel rumors propagated by sensationalist media reporting, explain in layman's terms what is going on with Mexican TCOs, and most importantly, WHY violence is happening along the US-Mexico border.


With over a dozen years of combined experience in military law enforcement, force protection analysis, and writing a variety of professional products for the US Air Force, state government in California, and the general public, Ms. Longmire has the expertise to create a superior product for you or your agency to further your understanding of Mexico’s drug war. Longmire Consulting is dedicated to being on the cusp of the latest developments in Mexico in order to bring you the best possible analysis of threats posed by the drug violence south of the border.

We received some information from Ciudad Juarez, but only on the couple that were in the truck.

The couple was executed by a heavily armed commando on Saturday afternoon as they were travelling in a Toyota pickup truck with Texas plates. The gunmen chased them down and caught up to them, riddling the vehicle with a hail of bullets right behind the City Hall. In the attack their ten month daughter who was in a baby chair in the back seat survived the attack.

Not much else.

Correction it was not a pickup truck but a small SUV, mexicans often refer to SUV's as "trokas."
