Mexico always make the headlines yet incidents in other countries and/or domestic events don't seem to garner the same press. As an example some Canadians were also killed in Jamaica recently yet it has hardly made the news.

To me there is a big difference between being killed in a car accident and having your decomposing body found in a shallow grave (but maybe that's just me.)

The Toronto Man that was killed in Grenada at the hands of the local police got a great deal of press and continues to be followed up on at least in Toronto....

Perhaps one just notices Mexican news more than other countries because that's where ones interest is.....

It also seems that some people think that their precious blue passport (whether it be Canadian or American) will protect them from the evils (inseguridad) that general population in Mexico is currently experiencing.... This simply is not true. Are foreigners being targeted for crime, perhaps sometimes because they can be easy targets, are they exempt from crime because of their blue passports or immigration status, certainly not.....

Just when you thought the bad "headline grabbing" press about Mexico couldn't get any worse..........

Believe me it can and will get a lot worse even President Calderon said so in a speech not too long ago
