This story still does not add up for me. From McAllen, lived in Reynosa, worked in the oil trade but still went out on the lake. I live two hours away and I know that this lake and area is a hot bed of activity between the cartels and the army/navy/federales. I would love to sightsee while living here, but reality is you cannot and everyone living here knows that.
Sad story, but it just isn't adding up.......

Actually, I would not be in front of the media in the first 24 hours to tell my story. I would be at home grieving and being asked to be left alone.

Fantastic idea, boycott everything Mexican. Good idea. If we boycott Cancun too it means they will suffer like Cuba..........NOT. If we want it to stop it let's boycott Marijuana, Cocaine, Heroin, hiring illegal aliens and Assault Weapon Sales.
We we accept responsibility for the demand side we can fire off negative comments.
Why is it that as a republican I am in the minority in calling for legalization of dope. It would require less gov't, allow our police to focus on real crimes and reduce the cost in the system. It would not increase violent crime because most violent crime is related to illegal activities such as gangs who fight in our cities to control the drug trade.
Tax it and give a percentage to the Democrats to form social groups to save all the addicts. Why is this issue so complicated???? Because the right is unduly influenced by you know who....the same ones who created prohibition and in some cases are still able to enforce it. Separation of church and state includes institutions AND policy.

My second amendment right allows me to carry a gun, but people worry legalizing dope will increase violence???

So rather than bash Mexico, let's get our own yard in shape....Mexico will still be here to bash when we are done.

Tell me dude.What should americans do?How can other americans travel or play on falcon lake?The cartel needs not to shoot the tourist.How would you feel if your spouse was gunned down in front of you while boating on falcon lake?So Tiff and her husband wanted to visit and take pics of the old church.The cartel should not have gunned down a unarmed man and his wife on that lake.Iam a buckeye.But after this I would be afraid to leave a cruise ship in cancun to buy souviners.The mexican govt should ask for help.We americans would gladly give it.Also Mexicans got the naME WETBACK BECAUSE THEY WORK FOR A LIVING WHILE BLACKS AND WHITES LIVE OFF THE GOVT.mEXICANS ARE HARD WORKING PEOPLE.bUT THE TRASH NEEDS TO STAY IN MEXICO AND THE GOOD PEOPLE WILL BE WELCOMED WITH OPEN ARMS.

First off all my friend, if you want me to believe you are open minded about hardworking mexicans having the handle you have makes it hard to understand. Secondly, everyone and I mean EVERYONE who lives within a hundred miles of that lake on both sides knows it is currently not protected. They lived in Reynosa so they are no strangers to what is going on here. Trust me - there have not been vacationers in that lake for some time. I never travel to Reynosa let alone on that lake. However comparing Cancun to Northern Mexico is like comparing New Orleans to Portland Oregon. It's another world and safe - tourism is up in Cancun in 2010. Great to hear your points of view, but listen to others to help shape yours. I am happy to shape mine based on something you are knowledgeable about but trust me .... on this one you are not right. As many of our great friends in the border state will tell you - this is a problem that needs to be worked out with Mexico not by putting them down. We need to accept our role in this and then we can nail these bastard Zetas where they sleep and I can come home. Even Sheriff Joe agrees with that - he could hate Mexicans but what he really hates is our Federal government - past and present. All can say is go Arnie - at least California is on the right track.

Face it! It takes real scumbags to gun down an unarmed family man.

You mean to tell me that your loved one was killed in front of you. That you would not seek JUSTICE, give me a break. I hope I would be out there looking myself, ready to hand out my own justice!

Tiff has decided to go back to colorado. but she will continue to speak out on securing our border..uhm meant returning hubby's body. I for one still waiting for the blood on vest analysis..lol. however this saga is coming to a temporary end, so don't hold your breath because in a year from now, the truth will come out. i don't think there was any collateral damage affecting current elections, which the bigots were hoping for.
