Ciudad Juarez, which led the list for three consecutive years, dropped to second last year with a tally of 148 homicides for every 100,000 residents. The other Mexican cities finishing in the top 10 for 2011 are: Acapulco, 128 murders per 100,000 people; Torreon area (where Rolly lives), 88; Chihuahua, 83; and Durango, with 80 homicides per 100,000 residents.

I was recently reminded of one of the closing lines in the excellent movie El Infierno:

"The past generation saw corruption and impunity as normal. Now there is a generation that sees violence as normal".

Looks like a case of comparing apples to oranges. In the list Rolly cited, dangerous cities are ranked by number of murders. The other list ranks the cities by violent crimes not limited to murder but also includes kidnapping, robbery and assaults.
