Mexico - Holiday Resort Cancun Drowns In Blood As 14 Are Killed in 36 Hours

Earlier this year, the US state department assigned a ‘dangerous for travel’ to several popular Mexican travel destinations, much to the dismay of travel operators. The measure was later expanded in March to include more holiday hotspots in the US’ southern neighbor.

Just a month later, the city of Cancun experienced its bloodiest 36 hours ever recorded when rival drug gangs killed 14 people in that timeframe in the once glittering beach resort city.

Since the beginning of 2018, more than 100 people were killed in the city. Such levels of murder easily surpass far larger metropolitan areas like New York and London.

British journalist Krishnan Guru-Murthy reported from the holiday hotspot, saying: “This is one of the most beautiful views in the world and we are the only people here.”

"the US state department assigned a ‘dangerous for travel’ to several popular Mexican travel destinations"

Why is the state department trying to prevent natural selection? Have they not watched idiocracy?

Mexican officials arent learning that if they could police and govern their country it would be rich with tourism. Apparently drug dealers pay them off otherwise they would be fighting this publicly.
