Mystery solved...

According to a Juarez resident I struck up a conversation with yesterday evening, the reason for the heavy guard presence, and the reason why the municipal police have all been issued assault rifles, is basically to discourage intimidation of the local population by one particular drug lord, who is trying to consolidate power in the region.

When I got too far into Juarez yesterday I lost my connection to AT&T's network. I was still taking pictures, but couldn't post them. I'll post a few of them now.
