I don't think this is a lie amigo. I think you should read more about these things before making a statemnet. What about those two kids kidnapped in Mexico in 1995 and killed in front of their parents because they didn't have the money to pay them?
Or what about when always in Mexico they put a bomb in the car of the nephew of the kidnapped and they blew him away because he tried to help the police? And talking about mexican police...do we want to talk about their "capacity" of being able of being completely corrupted (even worst of our italian corruption). I'm not exagerating! One of my best friend lost his sister in 1998 in that fucking place! She was there after she got married and they litterally smash the room were she was, kidnapped and killed her like a dog. Why? No money. How the fuck someone could have paid the ransom if no one of her parents knew that she was kidnapped. Like a dog.
the last but but by no means the least, episode is about that 11 years old girl discovered after 13 years. Yes, 13 years because everyone was thinking that she was dead but nooooooo!!! She had been kidnapped and forced into prostitution.
Seriously man, nothing against you but there are often things happening that never get "officially" reported.

Mexico is a poor, corrupt, dirty cesspool of a country. Anyone who has been there knows that already.

I went there once for vacation, and besides the food, there is nothing good about Mexico.

I am a US citizen living on the beach in Baja. I have a beautiful home in California and an even more spectacular one in the mountains of Colorado. But I choose to live in my home in Baja because life there is spectacular and the people are great. It is a low stress environment with no road rage, little crime and a wealth of lifestyle amenities.
Listing several incidents that happened over 10 years ago and condemning the country on that basis is absurd. All the things mentioned here have happened in the US in the last few months. US citizens die each day in gang violence, random killings, kidnappings, rapes and drug related violence EVERY DAY! Bad things happen everywhere.
Calling Mexico a cesspool of a country is an ignorant unenlightened view of someone who likely has been few places in this world. In my profession I was privileged to travel most of the planet and I can tell you the vast majority of the world believes the US to be the most dangerous place in the world. UN statistics support this.
Posting a video about people who have been killed in automobile accidents involving undocumented immigrants is not only irrelevant but very revealing about a dangerous attitude that Americans have about our neighbors. We need a healthy neighbor with a good economy. This would not only be good for national security but also would mean there are jobs in Mexico and largely resolve the undocumented worker flow north.
by the way this artical is erroneous and misleading. there have been no kidnappings of any US citzen not involved in the drug trade. the state departments warning specifically states:
“U.S. citizens residing and traveling in Mexico should exercise caution when in unfamiliar areas and be aware of their surroundings at all times…(however)…there is no evidence that U.S. citizens are specifically targeted because of their citizenship”
México is a great place with warm and engaging people. It offers a high quality of life at an incredibly low cost of living. I can only highly recommend it as a place to retire or enjoy a great vacation.

Right on! After 18 years of satisfying retired living in Mexico, I must say that getting away from ignorant, narrow-minded, redneck gringos like the pathetic sad sacks I encounter in this blog is a sufficient reward for suffering the occasional cultural stresses of living in a foreign country. I'd gladly spend a month in Nigeria rather than overnight in Mississippi.

How can you be a U.S. if you live in Baja California. If you live in Mexico, you are a citizen of that country or if you just staying their for personal reasons well thats different.

Honestly, who needs to go to Mexico anymore? Mexico has come to us! Any shopping area run and populated by mexicans is just as filthy and run down as it would be in Mexico, and there are so many mexicans in my area, I wouldn't notice if I was in Mexico except for the snow.

I've been to Mexico once, and will never go back. What a disgusting place.
