What is DRO Part 1


The first memory I have of my childhood has me standing in front of a window at my grandmother's house at the age of 2.

It's dark outside and most definitely past my bedtime. As I stare out the window, I can see bright flashing orange lines cutting across the dark sky. Some fly straight, some fly in strange patterns.

I was raised catholic - just like 99% of my family - and what that means is that every time there is a new birth in the family it is celebrated by a “Bautismo” followed by the killing of a pig that kick off a party that can extend clear into the next morning.

Hot Lead

The supersonic sound from the projectiles and the overpressure of the M16 muzzle flash was just as entertaining as a 4th of July firework display. Somehow I had front row seat to the show as I found myself standing a couple yards away from member of the Mexican PGR.

Separated by a single pane of glass - the agent had positioned himself against a wall outside the house - I could spot him in the darkness only when the night would turn to day with the exit of each bullet from his machine gun.

What had started as a day of celebration, had rapidly turned into a gun battle that had my father pinned down under a truck as the bullets flew freely thru the unrestricted airspace of my grandmother's front yard.

What happens when La Familia gets together.
