Murders in Mexico rise by a third in 2018 to new record

Murders in Mexico rose by 33 percent in 2018, breaking the record for a second year running, official data showed, underlining the task facing the new president who has pledged to reduce violence in the cartel-ravaged country.

Investigators opened to 33,341 murder probes compared with the previous year’s record of 25,036, according to information from the Interior Ministry published on Sunday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Years ago, I would have felt very comfortable driving from Southern California down to Tijuana, or Ensenadas, but those days are over. The country has devolved into a narco-state, where the drug gangs run with impunity, and can pretty much get away with anything they feel like doing....including murder.
