    While federal investigators dug for corpses in a nearby yard, Deonicio Delgadillo Picazo watched over his 11-year-old daughter, who was playing on a seesaw. Delgadillo said he was not surprised that 17 state police officers had been implicated in the deaths of 12 people found buried in the neighborhood. But he was shocked, he said, that some of those policemen were in jail

I Swear I Wouldnt Even Go To The Store By Myself Even In The Day, My Hubby Wanted To Take A Walk To The Little Mountains And I Did Not Go Because I've Heard That Bodies Are Found There Everyday.

    Femicide in Juarez?

    No contemporary human rights crisis in Mexico has moved world public opinion more than the rapes and murders of young women in Ciudad Juarez and the state of Chihuahua. Mass protests stretching from the U.S.-Mexico border to Europe and to India have demanded justice. Even Hollywood took up the theme, when it recently filmed a major drama about the Juarez crimes starring Antonio Banderas, Jennifer Lopez, and Martin Sheen, called "Bordertown." The multi-million dollar film was withheld from release on the big screen in the United States for unexplained reasons.
    For more than a decade now, investigators from the United Nations, Inter-American Commission for Human Rights, Amnesty International, International Human Rights Federation, Washington Office on Latin America, and even the Mexico government's own National Human Rights Commission have visited the border and issued reports that harshly criticize law enforcement's responses to the brutal killings.
    The European Parliament, U.S. Congress, New Mexico State Senate, and other entities have passed resolutions condemning the femicides. A police hotline to receive anonymous tips was established across the border from Ciudad Juarez in El Paso, Texas.
    Despite the international outcry, scores—perhaps hundreds—of murders and disappearances of young women remain unsolved. Refusing to let the memories of their loved ones die, mothers of femicide victims and their supporters are once again taking to the streets. On March 8, International Women's Day 2008, protestors from both sides of the border filed past the familiar cross monument in honor of murdered women that guards one of the entrances to Ciudad Juarez from El Paso at the foot of the Santa Fe Bridge.

    Thanks for reminding me again of these atrocities Absinthe. This keeps coming back and I can't understand how the Mexican government can sit back and let this insanity go on.

    (Source)
    Other researchers, including El Paso author Diana Washington Valdez, who documented murders from 1993 to 2005 (including 120-130 sex-related crimes) for her book "Harvest of Women," have reported far more murders than the 413 recognized by Gonzalez. If killings from the last three years are added to Washington's figures, the toll of women murdered for all motives in Ciudad Juarez exceeds 500 since 1993.
    What Ciudad Juarez sociologist Dr. Julia Monarrez calls "organized serial killings," in which as many as eight bodies were recovered at once from a single location, and other murders highly suspected of involving organized crime, stand out as unpunished crimes to this day. Drug traffickers, gang members, individual serial killers, businessmen, and even officers from the same agency tasked with investigating the crimes have been implicated in different press accounts.

    As for how the Mexican government can "let this insanity go on"...I'd venture to wager that it's because some pretty high-ranking officials are involved in the killings.

    Many of the murdered and missing are underage Americans crossing the border to drink and party. This is not getting the press it deserves!

    The Kidnapping Epidemic
    But, not only fighting is erupting in the streets of Mexico. Mexico's lawlessness - an outbreak of kidnappings for ransom, brutal gunfights among rival drug cartels and escalating violence - has now crossed the border and touched many American families.

    There stories are similar. Americans cross the Mexican-American border from Laredo, Texas to Nuevo Laredo, Mexico to celebrate birthdays, holidays, or to shop or just to enjoy another culture. But, one by one, these Americans failed to return home.

    The families of the missing Americans say they were oblivious to the violence in Mexico until their families were shattered by it. Now, they are paralyzed by fear.

    Thirty-one Americans have been reported as kidnapped just across the Mexican border. Seventeen are unaccounted for, 12 have returned and two have been confirmed killed, according to U.S. officials. Simple math draws a scary conclusion: there are more than a dozen Americans somewhere in the Nuevo Laredo area of Mexico - dead or alive.

    Kidnapping, Murder Sweep Nuevo Laredo (41 Americans go missing)

    Kidnapping, Murder Sweep Nuevo Laredo
    Friday, August 05, 2005


    NUEVO LAREDO, Mexico — A city official in charge of public security was gunned down along with another man in the downtown area of the embattled city of Nuevo Laredo on Friday.


    According to reports, it appeared to be an organized hit involving two cars.


    Nuevo Laredo, just cross the border from the United States, has become one of the most dangerous cities in the world. Rival drug cartels have turned the city into a war zone as they battle for control of the lucrative illegal drug market in the U.S.


    Gun battles in broad daylight are common, and the U.S. Consulate (search) has shut down, at least temporarily.


    The drug gangs have killed the city's last two police chiefs, the second of whom lasted only six hours on the job. Widespread police corruption has compounded the problem. The entire 700-officer force was fired for corruption this summer, though many were hired back.


    In addition to the killings, there has been an epidemic of kidnappings. There have been over 400 in the past year, including dozens of Americans.
