That is the headline on this story that ran on CNN recently. In looking at the facts, Mexico’s murder rate per 100,000 people was less than El Salvador, Honduras, Venezula, Guatemala or Columbia. Additionally, it shows how the drug related murders are concentrated in 4 northern states that comprise 60% or more of the murders.
We are glad to see that fact based reporting and not just sensationalist “news”. Click here to see the video.
