OK the irony is subtle but you can probably see it… 7 people have been killed after gunmen opened fire with automatic weapons during a soccer match in an “anti-violence” park in the Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez. The park was built three months ago as part of the “Live Better- Todos Somos Juarez” (We’re All Juarez) program.

Hey, here’s a little drug cartel quiz for you. How many federal police have been murdered in Ciudad Juarez this year? OK, here’s a hint, Ciudad Juarez is in Mexico just across the Rio Grande river from El Paso, Texas ( a lucrative drug trafficking route). Hmm, if you said 20 you’d be right. The latest victim had his head, legs and arms chopped off before being dumped outside a strip mall. The drug gang however were kind enough to leave a note on the body but police are refusing to reveal what it says. A gang war has been raging between the Juarez cartel and the Sinaloa cartel for some time as they fight for control over the drug routes. Hmm, maybe people should stop taking drugs so the cartel people can get real, respectable jobs? Drug cartels 1, police 0.
