This is a short documentary put together by Rodrigo Moreno about the violence in Mexico.
“The main office of the DA is on Harrison street in Brownsville on the 4TH floor and from my window we can actually here the gunfight and grenades that go off between the Mexican police versus the drug cartel members."
Police say there are some cartel members living Cameron County.
"Through intelligence gathering we have determined are cartel members in Brownsville area actually living in Brownsville."
Some residences who saw this documentary we shocked at some of things they saw.
"I have been here 7 or 8 years and it is shocking now I have had an opportunity to review some of the situations."
"Over the last few years there has been more violence that you will hear about that's coming across from Mexico."
Law enforcement say they are prepared in case that spill over violence does occur.
"One thing we will never be is out maneuvered, we have some of the smartest guys smartest people patrolling and best people investigating."
‘Training and second the way we way prepare us for anything that may transpire."
"We continue making the effort through intelligence and having a better strategy."
Although police say they have been cases of violence on this side of the border they want to remind residents the cities on this side of the border are safe and but do offer this advice.
"Have the public involved if they the public sees something that is not right in there neighborhood I believe that have a duty to report it and make sure no one gets hurt."
