Mama, don't let your babies grow up to be narcotraffickers.
That's the sad lament now being sung by the reputed boss of La Linea which serves as an enforcement crew for the Juarez drug cartel across the border from El Paso, TX.
Jose Antonio Acosta Hernandez a/k/a "El Diego" was arrested last week by Mexican federal police, and he's spilling his guts and expressing remorse for the innocents killed in the ongoing turf war against the Artistas Asesinos crew from the Sinaloa cartel as reported by Daniel Borunda for the El Paso Times.
Among those murdered under El Diego's watch were American consulate employee Lesley Ann Enriquez and her husband El Paso sheriff's deputy Arthur Redelfs who were gunned down in March 2010 under the mistaken belief that the couple were working for the Sinaloa cartel: "I called our partners, the Aztecas. ... They had made the determination to kill them thinking they were part of the opposing side. Afterward, we learned they had nothing to do with it."
