http://www.cnn.com/2011/OPINION/01/03/frum.mexico.risk/index.html?hpt=T2 U.S. citizens traveling in Mexico have been attacked and killed, sometimes by traffickers, sometimes by security forces, six of them in the last week of October 2010. But then again, American citizens traveling in Mexico sometimes are the traffickers, or so the Mexican authorities allege. and... About one out of every 8 Mexican-born people has moved to the United States Even Mexicans don't want to live in Mexico. I remember about 5 years ago when I got married I looked into Mexico for a honeymoon and even then State Dept had warnings such as being robbed, raped, and murdered. There was a story recently where an American went to the store and was killed by police and they planted a gun on him after the fact. So you can’t trust the locals and you can’t even trust the police. So why do people keep traveling there and think its isolated and nothing will happen to them? UPDATE: U.S. broadens Mexico travel warning http://www.cnn.com/2011/TRAVEL/04/26/mexico.travel.warning/index.html?hpt=C1 Ha, most of mexico either has red lines or completly red as don't travel unless you really have to.
