MEXICO CITY - Mexican security forces killed a drug cartel boss of the La Familia crime syndicate, known for its horrific brutality and long tentacles into dozens of U.S. cities, a government official said Friday.

Nazario Moreno, 40, died during two days of shootouts and unrest in Apatzingan in the state of Michoacan, National Security Council spokesman Alejandro Poire said. Five federal police officers and three civilians also were killed in the clashes.

"Various sources and information obtained from the operation agree that Nazario Moreno Gonzalez, also known as 'El Chayo' or 'The Doctor,' the main leader and one of the founders of La Familia, was shot dead yesterday," Poire said.

La Familia, considered Mexico's most violent cartel with branches stretching to California's Central Valley and the Southeastern United States, initiated some of the bloodiest tactics of Mexican drug gangs, including the first beheadings of rivals in 2006.

Good, but there still ain't enough money in the world to get me to go to Mexico for any reason.Certain parts of it are safe.You have to be very carteful where you go in other parts.The biggest danger is being near gang members in a restaurant or hotel when some rival gang comes gunning for them .The police in most areas work for the drug lords just to stay alive and survive.
