Phoenix AZ sees uptick in homicides 2nd straight year.....LINK

Chicago, IL homicides has decreased BUT 650 people were still killed....
LINK


Point is CRIME happens everywhere.

One should be 'informed' and not place themselves in a bad situation BUT don't put your head in the sand and think it just happens 'some where else'


Is it time for your medication or mine?

Indianapolis isn't very far behind either! Now they are having problems with houses getting shot up with kids (little kids) inside while they are sleeping! What's this world coming to?

Many are missing the point...

You bet your sweet butt this ain't Georgetown, D.C. and wandering around at 0300 isn't as safe. Going to a brothel in Nevada is not as risky as going to the Conquistador in suburbs of Acapulco. Wandering around a beach at night is risky.

Buying illegal drugs is a lot more risky down here.

And so is driving at night. Likewise getting down and Boogeying at the disco in a city ain't Mr. Roger's Neighborhood.

But I don't do any of those things. North or South of the Rio Bravo.

Likewise driving at night.*

My friends do not have halcones or bodyguards.

But Nit Pickers, will surely find these points and trample them into the ground as ammunition in their arguments about how Mexico ranks right up there with Yemen.

*All the things that you drive around that can total your car during the day are impossible to see at night. Green Angels and cops go home. Taxi drivers can navigate by braille.

Perhaps JAPAN is truly safe. Sorta hard to blend-in there...

Just wondering what would happen if the State Department issued warnings to tourists entering the USA using the crime rate is many US cities? Heading to Puerto Vallarta next month, hotelling it. Can't wait.

Take a look at this easy to read, color coded map of the world showing the countries that have travel advisories.
US State Dept Travel Advisories to foreign countries

You shouldn't leave home as most countries are dangerous... Only a few without advisories.

I am taking Antarctica off of my list as one must exercise increased caution! Those penguins are brutal!!! [emoticon]


Inquiring minds want to know...

Quote from the article:

The bloodshed, fueled by increased U.S. demand for heroin and a power struggle within one of Mexico’s most powerful drug cartels, is on the rise in a majority of Mexican states.
