#2 What the photo set doesn't show is that the Ford Lobo and the bus are part of a "narcoblocqueo" set by Los Zetas. To the immediate right ( and not shown ) is a Conway tractor trailer rig which was set to block the road. The likely situation is that los Zetas hijacked the three vehicles ( two of which are shown) then did all they could to prevent anyone from moving the block. The story was at the time that not even local police would attempt to unblock the roads because counterfire from Los Zetas was too intense.

The two dead individuals are probably Gulf cartel people in pursuit of Los Zetas and they got caught by the folks maintaining the roadblock.

I've seen this before. The head shot looks like from a Barrett-armed sniper. The attempt to pursue Los Zetas probably evaporated not too long after that shot.

#3 One thing I haven't seen are attempts to armor vehicles for short distance hits. You would think they would try something like that out, though it likely wouldn't work.

#6 NOTE: Texas Law enforcement analysis. Obama Federal Government is not interested in our safety. They are fighting states who are trying to protect themselves from this violence.
