Tourists find bullet-riddled
body on Acapulco beach

Sun [UK], by Jay Akbar

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 4/16/2018 11:01:28 AM

Chilling pictures of a man lying dead in the sand in crime-plagued Acapulco encapsulates the brutal violence gripping the once-idyllic tourist hotspot in Mexico. Tourists found the unnamed man’s body floating face-down in the water off Caletilla Beach after a suspected shooting. Armed troops and forensics personnel were seen carrying the body off the tourist-packed sands, on Mexico’s Pacific coast. (Snip) The Guerrero region itself is home to numerous poppy fields used to produce opium, the main ingredient in heroin. In Acapulco, locals who depend on tourism as their main source of income are understood to bring guns to the beach

Comments:
Mexico has perhaps the most strict gun control laws in the world, so locals would be taking a real risk carrying guns to the beach for their own protection, and that would also show how real the dangers are. Close the border.

Pretty sure it is difficult for tourists to arm themselves for protection.

It sounds like vincente fox has some fields he wants to put into production. PDJT better hurry up with our wall. Once obrador is elected and nationalizes all those manufacturing plants, the northbound hordes will be huge.

Mexico has a huge problem with rival cartels competing for dominance in supplying illegal, destructive drugs to the US market.

The Mexican government is corrupt and their citizens suffer, often illegally fleeing to the US either to escape their corrupt country or to make their living distributing drugs and fighting rival gangs.

The US is complicit by failing to control our borders and for providing a market for illegal drugs.

Wake up, America, or the self-destruction of our culture will continue to worsen until it is too late.

A few years ago I vacationed near Cancun and it was wonderful, the people and the area. I worried about the cartels and was told in that area it was not a concern and I have to say police were EVERYWHERE. The Mexican Government needed to ensure the tourist trade stayed healthy, after all money being sent from the USA, some vegetables and tourism were their only form of commerce. Okay, our auto makers were trying to get by cheaply by having parts and cars manufactured south of our border ensuring workers in America were put on the dole.

I won´t go back, no matter how good the deal may appear. Based on the demand, I don´t see how PDT can stop the flow of drugs into the U.S. but I sincerely hope he can. Politicians understand how dumbed-down many of our citizens (voters!) are and the drugs are only making it worse.

Bye Mehico. You were nice, for a while.

Friends owned a villa at the Acapulco Princess which we used for 6-7 years in the mid to late 90´s. I didn´t feel unsafe at any time. Now there´s not enough money to make me vacation there.

New York set aside $10 million for the legal defense of immigrants targeted by Immigration and Customs Enforcement just days after ICE announced the arrest of hundreds of people in the state. The Liberty Defense Project will ensure legal rights are being represented, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said. It was launched last year, but it needs the additional funds in light of what state officials described as “overly aggressive tactics” from ICE. “ICE’s hyper-aggressive raids on hardworking New Yorkers are immoral and un-New York, and we stand more determined than ever to support the rights of all immigrants in the Empire State

The notorious MS-13 gang recently told its membership to randomly murder a Long Island cop, with the NYPD in turn placing its officers on high alert, a police source said. An informant went to the Hempstead police on Wednesday to recount his chilling conversation with a member of the gang, according to an NYPD memo warning of the threat. The gang-banger declared "the police have been making too many arrests and it´s time to take the streets back and take out a cop like we do in El Salvador," the memo said.

A mentally ill man who was welcomed into a Minnesota family’s home beat a mother and her son to death with a pipe wrench — and then told police he did so because they were “weird,” authorities said. William Lynn Hillman, 21, was charged Thursday in Otter Tail County District Court with two counts of second-degree murder in the deaths of Denise McFadzen, 42, and her 21-year-old son Dalton McFadzen, the Star Tribune reports. Both victims were found at about 5 a.m. Tuesday at a home in Gorman Township, roughly 100 miles away from Cass County, where Hillman had been ruled

A homeless shelter is

The rich and famous who inhabit Gotham’s storied “Billionaires’ Row” will soon have some less well-heeled neighbors following the city’s approval of a 140-bed homeless shelter near Columbus Circle. The shelter will be located in the former Park Savoy Hotel on West 58th Street, a building right next door to the rear entrance of One57, one of the sleek new towers springing up in Manhattan to serve the ultra-wealthy. (Snip) The shelter’s location in the posh neighborhood fulfilled a campaign promise by Mayor Bill de Blasio, who won office by assailing income inequality and public policies tilted to favor the wealthy.

Federal authorities have doubled a reward to $20,000 for information about the theft of 704 pounds of dynamate stolen from a construction site in Pennsylvania last weekend. The dynamite and 400 blasting caps were reported missing Monday from a gas pipeline worksite in Marietta, Pennsylvania, according to officials with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. (Snip) The explosives were stored inside a locked truck trailer left on the site after workers left on Friday. The worksite security company did not discover the theft until Monday, when they noticed the trailer door was ajar with the locks missing, the ATF said.

The number of illegal immigrants from Bangladesh jumping the border to sneak into the U.S. is on pace to double in the Laredo region of Texas, officials said Wednesday, in what is the latest worrying surge of migration from a country with terrorism dangers. The illegal immigrants pay up to $27,000 to international smuggling organizations to ferry them from Asia into the western hemisphere, where they make their way up through Central America and Mexico to the U.S. border, where they’re led across the Rio Grande. Another four Bangladeshis were nabbed in the Border Patrol’s Laredo Sector on Wednesday, bringing the total

New York — The voting rights of tens of thousands of disenfranchised parolees were restored under an executive order from Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Wednesday. New York will be one of just 14 states that allow people to vote after they’ve served time in prison. Cuomo noted that 75 percent of parolees in the state are black or Latino and voting restrictions disproportionately impact African American and Hispanic communities. “It is unconscionable to deny voting rights to New Yorkers who have paid their debt and have re-entered society,” Cuomo said. “This reform will reduce disenfranchisement and will help restore justice and fairness

A New Jersey college professor is being investigated by school officials for classroom footage of him berating a conservative student with “F— your life!” Students who registered for Howard Finkelstein’s Sociology 105, Intercultural Communication course at Brookdale Community College say it has devolved into polemic against 23-year-old Christopher Lyle.

Retiring GOP Sen. Bob Corker had some unusually warm words for the Democrat running for his job in November, saying Wednesday he would not campaign against former Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen this fall. In one of the pivotal races for control of the Senate, Mr. Corker told a Christian Science Monitor breakfast he would vote for presumptive Republican nominee Rep. Marsha Blackburn, but he would not actively stump against the Democrat. “I don’t plan to campaign against a friend,” Mr Corker said. The Tennessee seat has emerged as an unexpected pickup opportunity for Democrats seeking to overturn the current 51-49 GOP

The Armed Forces have a shortfall of 8,200 regular troops in the ‘largest gap in a decade’, Whitehall’s spending watchdog says. The military was so understaffed in critical areas such as intelligence that operations could not be carried out without cancelling leave or training. There was a 26 per cent shortfall in intelligence analysts last year, according to the National Audit Office (NAO) – even as the Ministry of Defence tries to bolster its cyber capabilities. The report said this was because of increasing demand for analysts and difficulties persuading troops to stay in the military. It comes as alarm grows over

Washington - Dozens of Democratic U.S. Senators on Wednesday introduced a resolution calling for Environmental Protection Agency chief Scott Pruitt to resign on allegations of ethics lapses. Those relate to the agency’s purchase of a $43,000 sound booth for his office and spending on travel and security. The resolution was signed by 39 senators in the 100-member Senate, which is controlled by Pruitt’s fellow Republicans. Although Republicans can defeat it, the resolution is symbolically important because it represents the most senators ever to call for a Cabinet member’s ouster in resolution, its sponsors said.

As president of S.F. Travel, the city’s visitors bureau, Joe D’Alessandro’s job is to promote San Francisco. You’d think he’d be hyping the city’s gorgeous vistas, top-notch restaurants and glorious museums. Instead, he’s getting honest. Sure, San Francisco has great facets worthy of postcards and travel books, but it also has a worsening underbelly that D’Alessandro says he can no longer gloss over. People injecting themselves with drugs in broad daylight, their dirty needles and other garbage strewn on the sidewalks. Tent camps. Human feces. The threatening behavior of some people who appear either mentally ill or high. Petty theft. “The streets are

Advocates in the field argue that the Earth needs to be treated with love. In addition to reducing harmful environmental practices, ecosexuals believe that humans should physically make love to the Earth.
