I am angry and sad at the total collapse of law & order in Torreo'n. My wife & I would spend 3 months there each year. Our home is in an older / quite neighborhood but each home there is quickly becoming a walled-in enclave. Some with high voltage wires on top and CCTV cameras. You live as a virtual prisoner in your home. I have stayed away for 2+ years now as I would be kidnap target in the current climate. My wife, a native of the area, made a recent visit & discovered to exterior copper pipe had been stripped from the house. Our nephew had his truck stolen at knife point, in broad daylight, while stopped at a red light in the center of town! Family members seldom go out socially anymore & never to the same place 2x in a row. What a shame, the La Laguna is a delightful place & I would love to resume my annual visits. With the lawless climate that now prevails throughout Mexico, I fear that I have seen Torreo'n for the last time.
