The following post and comments are from one of the Nuevo Laredo facebook pages and only one of several threads with the same general theme – residents are just a little miffed that they are getting the notice about two hours after the shootouts and helicopters. In the previous administration, I think whoever controlled the FB page would post immediately of streets blocked or areas to avoid. With the new administration, many of the posts have turned to feel-good photo opps and delayed announcements of where the danger is. To each administration their own but as you can see (if you read in Spanish), residents are sharing their frustration (most with sarcasm and humor) of being told hours afterward with only a few showing some gratitude for the notice.
Some of the loosely translated comments read:
what for if it already rained, dried up and rained again a thousand hours later well, wow, with you speediness to inform… are you just waking up or what? hey, the FUAAA already arrived to resurrect the dead and they’ve already been killed again the wake is over and the dead have already been buried crickets.wav it’s over but I guess thank you
Now to wait and see what the official news will be.
