More violence in Juarez

1 Feb

I’ve written about the female murders in border town Cuidad Juarez, Mexico before but youth violence overall has escalated in recent months.

On Jan.31, at least thirteen people were killed at a high schooler’s house party in Juarez, including the party host’s father.  Little is known about the shooting but it is thought to be drug and/or gang related.   Juarez currently holds the unfortunate record of more violent deaths per year than any other Mexican city.

Violence is so entrenched in this area, it’s hard to think of a time when it will dissipate.
