The other Mexico story



Over the years, I've met and followed the work of Mexican journalists covering the cartels.  They are often people who started their own magazines or blogs.  They are brave and will write a lot that the cartels do not want the world to hear about.
Yesterday, we learned of another casualty in Mexico:  
A veteran journalist who had chronicled the bloody conflicts among rival drug cartels in his home state, Sinaloa, and the culture of violence they inflicted on the broader society, was killed by gunmen on Monday near the newspaper that he had co-founded, the authorities said.
The journalist, Javier Valdez Cárdenas, 50, was in his car when he was intercepted by the killers, according to Ríodoce, a weekly he founded with Ismael Bojórquez in the city of Culiacán in 2003.
At least 104 journalists have been murdered in Mexico since 2000, while 25 others have disappeared, according to the press freedom organization Article 19.
The death of Mr. Valdez, who had shared prizes from Columbia University and the Committee to Protect Journalists, raises pressure on the government of President Enrique Peña Nieto to address the killings more forcefully.
Yes, it would be nice if the Peña-Nieto administration would address the killings, but what can he really do?
Journalists like Valdez Cárdenas are out in the battle zone daily.  They are the ones who dig up the stories about killings, corruption, and everything else that makes up this bloody story south of the border.  They usually do their work without bodyguards or expose their families to torture and late-night threatening phone calls.
So the killing goes on south of the border.
The L.A. Times ran a story two months ago about the massacre south of the border:
Last year, there were 20,792 homicides in Mexico – a 22% increase over 2015, and a 35% jump over 2014.
The Mexican government always reminds us that the violence is not always cartel-related, but experts say that half of it probably is.  They also always say that tourist sectors are generally free of violence, and that's true of the Caribbean resorts.
Nevertheless, Mexico is not the country I recall living in some years ago.
P.S. You can listen to my show (Canto Talk), (YouTube) and follow me on Twitter.


IMMANENT COLLAPSE THE  PENA-NIETO REGIME AND FALL TO THE LA RAZA DRUG CARTELS ON AMERICAN OPEN AND UNDEFENDED  BORDERS.

More significant still, a former Mexican official, Jorge Castañeda, threatened to unleash Mexican cartels onto the U.S. to retaliate for deportations of illegal immigrants and the construction of a border wall.  




“Mexico in a country whose four wealthiest billionaires control as much wealth as the bottom half of the population—the 65 million that live in poverty (which includes 13 million living in extreme poverty)—and where the top 10 percent as a whole accounts for 67 percent of Mexico’s national wealth.”


 THE TRUMP WALL LIE! WAS IT THE FIRST BROKEN PROMISE?



"If true, it shows Trump being the ultimate cynic and not having the courage to state his true beliefs to the American public who elected him.  That's always been my biggest problem with Trump: his lack of integrity and consistent belief system." ----- ED STRAKER

TRUMP FOLDS TO LA RAZA MEX FASCIST MOVEMENT
Says the “WALL” will now be only “NO TRESSPASSING” signs posted every hundred miles!
“He's showing more empathy for illegal aliens than he is for American citizens.  Shouldn't it be the concerns of Americans he should be considering first, before the feelings of illegals?  These people are taking taxpayer money and American jobs, some committing crimes, and many are not assimilating and speaking English, and Trump wants them to stay?

Police: Three Teens Stole Car, Killing 6-Year-Old Boy in Back Seat

Three Mississippi teenagers were arrested after a 6-year-old boy was killed in the back seat of a stolen car, police said.

Byron McBride, 19, along with D’Allen Washington and Dwan Wakefield, who are both 17, were charged with capital murder in connection with the child’s death, the Associated Press reported.
Police found 6-year-old Kingston Frazier with multiple gunshot wounds in the back of his mother’s stolen car that was abandoned in Gluckstadt, 15 miles north of Jackson, the state capital.
Authorities say Frazier went missing around 1 a.m. Thursday after a man drove a Toyota Camry out of a supermarket parking lot in Jackson.
Nine hours later, a man reported the missing vehicle found on a dead-end road in Gluckstadt.
Ebony Archie, the child’s mother, collapsed and broke down in sobs when she heard the news that her son had been killed at the district attorney’s office in Jackson.
Archie’s family members said that Ebony had just picked up Frazier from his grandmother’s house and decided to go the store to pick up party supplies for Frazier’s kindergarten graduation when the men broke into her car and drove away.
“She feels guilty for the fact that she decided to go inside the store and leave the car running when she went inside the store,” David Archie, Ebony Archie’s uncle, told WLBT.
Wakefield told investigators that McBride was the only one out of the three who was responsible for actually killing Frazier and stealing the vehicle.
Wakefield, McBride, and Washington all face charges of capital murder and will be tried as adults. However, only McBride could face the death penalty because of a Supreme Court ruling that outlawed the death penalty for anyone younger than 18.
The three of them are being held without bail in Madison County and are expected to appear in court Monday.




EYE ON THE NEWS

Some Black Lives Don’t Matter

Black-on-black homicide is rampant, but professional agitators couldn’t care less.

Another cell-phone video that didn’t make it to CNN
 or MSNBC: Last November, 33-year-old Antwan 
McNutt beat a man to death with a bottle of liquor 
on the South Side of Chicago. Onlookers took video 
and posted it to Facebook; no one intervened to help. 
has prior convictions for manufacturing and 
delivering a controlled substance, attempted 
aggravated carjacking, possession of a stolen motor 
vehicle, and battery and resisting arrest, according 
to  DNA Info. But he was back on the streets 
committing more mayhem, contrary to the “mass 
incarceration” conceit that black males are targeted 
with endless draconian punishment for minor 
transgressions of public order.
We rightly hold our police officers to the highest standards of conduct. Had a cop beaten a black man to death it would justifiably have been international news, especially if the beating had been caught on video. Likewise, if a white man had beaten a black man to death, it would have been international news and cause for public mourning and admonition. But the routine taking of black lives by other blacks generates no interest in the mainstream media. Forty-three hundred people, including two dozen children under the age of 12, were shot in Chicago last year. Had 4,300 white people been shot, there would have been a revolution, and the media would have set up headquarters in the city to cover the breakdown of law and order. But because the victims were nearly all black, few pay attention—besides the police.
Nor have the Black Lives Matter activists, who pour out by the thousands, sometimes to riot, in the case of alleged officer misuse of force, ever protested the killing of blacks by other blacks. If one-one-hundredth of the attention that has been paid to phantom police racism over the last two decades had been devoted to rebuilding the black family, no one would be talking about policing today. Policing is an epiphenomenon of crime. If you want fewer police in your neighborhood, make sure that people are not killing each other.
