Sheriff: MS-13 Gang Brings Machetes, Rape, Scalping to Texas

Breitbart – by Bob Price

Members of the hyper-violent MS-13 transnational criminal gang are bringing severe tactics like machete-hacking murders, rape, and scalping to Texas according to the Texas Sheriff’s Association.

Jackson County Sheriff Andy Louderback, who also serves on the Texas Sheriff’s Association, told Breitbart Texas on Monday that the MS-13 gang members are bringing a level of violence not seen before by gangs in the U.S.  

“They have distinguished themselves as to the level of violence by committing heinous acts including hacking people to death with a machete, scalping, and raping young girls,” the sheriff said. “They are a Tier 1 threat in Texas.”

Louderback recently spoke on a teleconference panel hosted by Jessica Vaughn with the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS). During that conference, Louderback discussed the impact in Texas these gangs are presenting and how the flood of unaccompanied alien chidren across our southern border is leading to a massive increase in the numbers of MS-13 gang members in Texas and across the U.S.

“We are inexperienced in seeing the level of brutality, savagery that MS-13 is doing here in Texas,” the south Texas sheriff told the listeners. “There are many cases in the Houston area. And out of 20,000 gang members in Houston, about 800 of them are MS-13, Mara Salvatrucha.”

“But the violence that they commit in Houston, Harris County, is unbelievable,” he continued. “And most of our citizens are unprepared and don’t have the knowledge on what’s actually going on with these gang members here in the state of Texas. And having the border here in Texas affords us a unique look into exactly what’s happening to our country, which appears first most of the time here in Texas.”

“We have multiple deportees using machetes, scalping, killing 14-year-olds, 23-year-old gang leaders, you know, luring, you know, kids into a road near Addicks Dam and using a machete, it was four of them, to hack a person to death – a 14-year-old boy, who allegedly would not murder his cousin, that they were upset about over some issue,” Louderback stated.

He is referring to the case recently concluded in Houston where Breitbart Texas reported a MS-13 gang leader was convicted of murdering a 14-year-old boy with a machete. Jose Granados-Guevara, 23, was convicted by state district court Judge Terry Mlenniken following a three-day bench trial. The judge sentenced Granados-Guevara to spend 99 years in a state prison.

The victim, Jose Meraz, was taken by Granados-Guevara and three other gang members to a wooded area in the west part of Houston near Addicks Dam Road on September 15, 2014. The MS-13 gang members passed the machete around as they killed the boy. Meraz was sentenced to death by Granados-Guevara after he refused to kill his own cousin as part of a gang ritual, the Houston Chronicle reported.

Louderback continued, talking about a case reported last week by Breitbart Texas where a MS-13 gang member who had previously been deported posed as a music producer with another gang member to lure a 15-year-old girl to Houston where she was repeatedly raped by the two men according to Harris County Sheriff Ron Hickman.

“We have a 15-year-old girl out of Henderson, Texas who was lured on a social media app, K-I-K or Kik, and also as MS-13 members that were posing as music talent searchers and talent, able to put her in front of certain folks to enhance her talent,” Louderback said describing the violent assault. “[They] took her captive, sexually assaulted her for two days before she was able to get free, get a cellphone, get a hold of 9-1-1. Again, a two-time deportee, MS-13 members. That’s what we’re faced with, folks.”

“We need help. We need help from the federal government,” Sheriff Louderback pleaded. He continued:

The state government’s actively involved. You know, hat’s off to them for what they’re doing. But the federal government plays a role here. And our interaction with law enforcement and federal policies that are in place now are reprehensible. They affect law enforcement. They affect our citizens. They affect our taxpayers. And it’s not a good situation, by any stretch. And, you know, my vocabulary, I get pretty passionate about this because, you know, Texas sheriffs and Texas law enforcement, you know, our citizens are important to us, as probably in all states. But it’s a unique situation here in Texas.

It is not just a Texas problem. Jessica Vaughn wrote for CIS that the problem effects cities all across the United States. “The Washington, D.C. metropolitan area, Baltimore, Long Island, Charlotte, Newark, Boston, Atlanta, Miami, and several Texas cities suffer the highest level of MS-13 violence, as shown by ICE arrests,” Vaugh stated. “Brentwood, N.Y., on Long Island, a town consumed by MS-13 crime, exemplifies the association between the huge influx of illegal alien minors and MS-13 violence levels. In a town of 60,000, there have been 30 MS-13 murders since 2010; an additional three murders this fall, plus two bodies found from the spring are being attributed to the dangerous gang.”

Vaughn attributed the growing problem to the exploitation of existing law designed to deter human trafficking that now allows these unaccompanied minors unbridled access to American cities. She wrote:

The increasing MS-13 population and violence results in part from Congress passing the 2008 Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act (TVPRA), which was intended to protect against the trafficking of unaccompanied minors. But the Obama administration has misused the law and allowed in tens of thousands of illegal alien teenagers who are neither unaccompanied nor trafficked. Over last three years the administration has used the law as a pretext to allow over 120,000 minors to remain in the country, resulting in “a national security and public safety crisis,” according to Joe Kolb, a Center fellow and author of the two reports.

Vaughn concluded, “currently an average of 260 unaccompanied youths are being allowed in every day, compared to about 150 a day in 2014. Sheriff Louderback speaks for all of the traumatized communities when he said, ‘We need help.’”

  1. “We need help. We need help from the federal government,” Sheriff Louderback pleaded.

    Idiot. Who does he think brought these wetbacks here in the first place?

    What he needs to do is inform the citizenry of the menace, tell them to arm themselves, and turn his empty head when they give these wetbacks what they deserve.

    “We have no clues or witnesses regarding who killed all those Mexicans”.

  2. Americans brink guns.
    Shoot MS-13 members and throw them in the Rel Grande.
    Problem solved.
    Government brings all its power down upon the people that defended themselves and throw those people in jails controlled by MS-13

    I now feel so free my butt hurts.

  3. No, they have been trying to combine LE’s in the state with the feds for a very long time, hence why this court case, Mack and Printz v. United States, that actually was constitutional.

    Mack and Printz v. United States: “The Framers rejected the concept of a central government that would act upon and through the States, and instead designed a system in which the State and Federal Governments would exercise concurrent authority over the people. The Federal Government’s power would be augmented immeasurably and impermissibly if it were able to impress into its service – and at no cost to itself – the police officers of the 50 States… Federal control of state officers would also have an effect upon the separation and equilibration of powers between the three branches of the Federal Government itself.” (1997)

    It was/has been planned. But before those that want to destroy our nation planned for that event, the other events against the people being armed, those events yet to come there were plans created to stop those things from ever being here in the USA. But “We the people…” let corrupt and power hungry scum to stop us from our duties, dumb us down, ec.

    Know how everyone says it is all “backwards” today? It is, including gun control. The people are constitutionally required to be armed and trained or pay a fee to the Militias. Why is that a requirement? So that weapons would rarely be in the hands of our governments – state and federal; and even then it would be the people responding to requests to enforce laws, defend borders, etc; or the congress declares a war., and from the ranks of the Militia soldiers are called.

    Tench Coxe, Delegate, Constitutional Convention of 1787: “The power of the sword, say the minority…, is in the hands of Congress. My friends and countrymen, it is not so, for The powers of the sword are in the hands of the yeomanry of America from sixteen to sixty. The militia of these free commonwealths, entitled and accustomed to their arms, when compared with any possible army, must be tremendous and irresistible. Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? Is it feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man against his own bosom. Congress has no power to disarm the militia. THEIR SWORDS AND EVERY TERRIBLE IMPLEMENT OF THE SOLDIER ARE THE BIRTHRIGHT OF AMERICANS. THE UNLIMITED POWER OF THE SWORD IS NOT IN THE HANDS OF EITHER THE FEDERAL OR STATE GOVERNMENTS BUT, where I trust in God it will ever remain, IN THE HANDS OF THE PEOPLE.”

    Joel Barlow, Revolutionary War veteran, wrote “Advice to the Privileged Orders, in the Several States of Europe”, clergyman, theologian, popular poet, successful diplomat, and American whose political writings were debated on the floor of Parliament said of the US Constitution: “… not only permitting every man to arm, but obliging him to arm.”

    “We the People of the united States” are the Militia of the several states. We are the lawful, and required, Defenders of Liberty within our nation from both domestic and foreign enemies. We are the lawful enforcer of all laws that are in Pursuance thereof the US Constitution and follows each state’s Constitution. The “People” as the Militia of the several states ARE the LAWFUL defenders of ourselves, our families, property, counties, cities, states, and of our nation. So when a state’s Militia goes out to assist a family / city / county / state or the nation itself, the people as the “sovereigns” lawfully call themselves forth, as the ONLY governmental body that is LAWFULLY charged to carryout those duties. But to have the full backing of the US Constitution behind us, for us to be the lawful enforcement of it and state Constitutions we are required to be trained as congress requires the military to train so that we can use all armaments of war when needed. But we are required to be knowledgeable about the US Constitution and each state’s Constitution so that we know and recognize tyranny, etc and can REFUSE to follow the order. Then charge, arrest the person giving that order.

    James Madison: “… large and permanent military establishments … are forbidden by the principles of free government, and against the necessity of which the militia were meant to be a constitutional bulwark.”

    Editorial on Gage’s proclamation stressed that an armed populace must keep government in check: “The opposing an arbitrary measure, or resisting an illegal force, is no more rebellion than to refuse obedience to a highway-man who demands your purse, or to fight a wild beast, that came to devour you. It is morally lawful, in all limited governments, to resist that force that wants political power, from the petty constable to the king…. They are rebels who arm against the constitution, not they who defend it by arms.” “A Freeman,” PA. EVENING POST, June 27, 1775, at 2. [Vol. 7:2]

    John Smilie warned: “Congress may give us a select militia which will, in fact, be a standing army–or Congress, afraid of a general militia, may say there shall be no militia at all. When a select militia is formed; the people in general may be disarmed.”

  4. Tell you what, Houston–send those M-F’ers to my neck of the woods, and let them out of the truck or whatever at the entrance to this POA, and if any of them reaches our house in the back end of this POA surviving mountain lions and occasional bear–sorry but the javelinas have already gone south–let us know and we’ll do the rest.
