Mexico's 94-per-day murder rate reaches this-is-insane territory

Elizabeth Llorente | Fox News: 

Mexico saw a record number of murders in the first six months of the year, with an average 94 killings each day, according to the Mexico News Daily.

The news outlet, citing figures from the Secretariat of Security and Citizens Protection, noted that June saw the most murders of any month on record, with more than 3,000 people killed.

 

The violence has reached such a fever pitch that Mexico President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, who was sworn into office in December, has decided to send the National Guard to some areas, including Mexico City, a controversial move that critics say will not solve the high homicide rate and will instead lead to abuses.

 

Among the areas in the country with the most homicides are Mexico City, Veracruz, Chihuahua and Jalisco, the news outlet reported.

The state with the highest murder rate is Guanajuato, where the Jalisco New Generation and Santa Rosa de Lima cartels are engaged in a power struggle, according to the BBC. ... continued.
