The mexican authoroties we’re most likely involved with the murders which is why scape goats were used when questions were raised about the unsolved cases. This year so far, 30 women have gone missing. They’re all similar ages and of similar appearance. The governemnt still denies that there is a problem!! It’s believe that drug cartels kill these women as part of initiation and celebration. Something has to be done!!

First of all the problem started early last year when the Governor of Chihuahua, followed orders sent by the federal government (President of the Mexico Calderon) that the right to sell cocaine in the city were being transferred to someone else.This someone else is probably Chapo Guzman, I say this because it is common knowledge that Chapo is “compadre” of Calderon and he helped him become president.So the chiefs of the different law enforcement agencies (judicial estatal, AFI, policia municipal) were called in and were told that a change of “Plaza” (plaza is a term that describe someone’s sole ownership or right to sell drugs and commit murder with 100% support and protection from the different law enforcement agencies) was in effect. That is why at the beginning most of the killings affected high ranking law enforcement members. The military was sent by Calderon, and I thought that things were going to change, but I guess the drug cartel known as “la linea” headed by J.L (I think he recently got killed) has too many law enforcement officials that are not following the governor’s orders. This is one reason why the local cops no longer carry guns, but instead have soldiers accompany them.Well I think that the soldiers and federal agents are once again protecting the drug dealers. I say this because the dope houses, which are very obvious, opened up for business once again and police are always near to protect them.Most of the killing that are happening know are because the guys from the “linea” think that the rival cartel is operating in the city. I doubt it, Because if you get caught with a cocaine package with the wrong label, the police will kidnap you, torture you to find out were you bought it, and then dispose of your body like if you were a dog…Go to yahoo videos and type Juarez, J.L. execuciones.

According to officvial sources of whom there doesn’t even appear to BE any murder rstatistics for Juarez in ’08, there were less murders in CHIHUAHUA STATE last year than the figures being bandied about in media reports for the state capital.As it stands, Caracas based on 2007 (‘2008′ figures aren’t even out for that city) unqestionably has more murders and a higher rate than Juarez and New Orleans is much lower and shouldn’t even be on that list, 289 murders and 28 per 100,000 according to the FBI. No Honduran cities, only one Colombian and no Kingston, Jamaica. These are the places currently dominating the top positions for urban murder rates last year. Brazil, South Africa, other Central American countries aside from Honduras, complete US urban areas and Caracas don’t have 08 figures yet.

Wouldn’t it have been better to spend the billions used for cash for clunkers on the war against drugs. Maybe our Senators and Congresspeople could give up their private jets, expensive health insurance, and other perks and use the money toward fighting illegal drugs. If drug addits anonymous had their own special interest group to pursuade elected officials to stop drug trafficing, maybe it would become more important. Lets dare our elected officials to close the boarders between Mexico and the U.S. To impose greater consequences to those who are caught crossing the boarder. Drug Smugglers should be subject to the death penalty and illegal drug smugglers should be denied the rights afforded to U.S. citizens. There are many ways the Gov’t could get serious about stopping drug trafficing, but they choose not too. Instead they continue to put the fire out on a tree here and there instead of saving the forest. When the U.S. gets serious about closing our boaders and stopping drug trafficing then Beautiful Mexico will become a safer more properous country.
