One question: the newspaper reports that no one was detained or killed. How is that possible?

A Sort-of Happy Story
I guess no kidnapping story can't be entirely happy, but this was more so than most: Yesterday a 25-year-old here in Torreón was forced from his car by a bunch of men in assault rifles a couple blocks from my last house, and was taken to house a couple blocks from my novia the bread-snatcher's previous residence. Neighbors noticed the commotion when the victim was brought inside and called the federales, who saved the kid after a gunfight with the kidnappers. This is another example of what anecdotally seems like an increasing tendency of ordinary Mexicans to denounce criminal activity.
