And you thought Chicago was bad for murders !

Dec 19, 2017 | 23:51 1 The Mexican government projects that by the end of 2017, over 27,000 will have died as a result of the violence that is fueled by drug cartels,

Twenty-seven of Mexico’s 32 states — including areas that are popular tourist destinations like Cabo San Lucas and Cancun — reported having major drug violence in 2017.

This assessment of violence in the region is based on more than numbers, although the 39,000 people killed in Mexico, Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador in 2016 indicate a security crisis much more complex and serious than most other countries in the region. Mexico’s 2016 intentional homicide total, 23,000, is second only to Syria. …

Dec 20, 2017 | 00:09 2 Yet, for some unknown reason, Canadians pay to go to Mexico to risk their lives. Mystery to me. Leave one of the safest countries in the world in the middle of the best season ( snowmobiling, skiing, etc.) to go try to drown, get a sunburn, possibly die in gang warfare, get food poisoning, and drink watered down alcohol. What am I missing? Reply With Quote

Throw you off a balcony or just hunt you down and kill you because you're a gringo. Reply With Quote

I dare you to go to down town in Regina by the old Taylor field and walk north two blocks late at night after drinking and partying and then you can tell me how safe it is to live here.

Yes Cabo has areas you don't go and you don't have to be flashy or mean or get drunk and become a ugly American because bad things can happen to you. Reply With Quote

Dec 20, 2017 | 09:06 7 Canucks go to Mexico because the idea of being out in -30 wind chill and then getting on a sled to experience -60 windchill doesn't appeal. That being said, Mexico's drug and violent crime problem is a concern. Once President Trump gets the wall built, there will be fewer successful drug movements, so then the violent crime problem will likely subside somewhat. Does go to show that there is very little correlation between gun control laws and death by homicide. Reply With Quote

Do you really think the wall will reduce drug shipments into the US? The border wall is unlikely to be built or finished. Plus traffickers will just use air and sea to move the massive amounts of drugs around any wall. Reply With Quote

How U.S. gun deaths compare to other countries

Americans are 10 times more likely to be killed by guns than people in other developed countries, a new study finds.

Compared to 22 other high-income nations, the United States' gun-related murder rate is 25 times higher. And, even though the United States' suicide rate is similar to other countries, the nation's gun-related suicide rate is eight times higher than other high-income countries, researchers said.

The study was published online Feb. 1 in The American Journal of Medicine.

"Overall, our results show that the U.S., which has the most firearms per capita in the world, suffers disproportionately from firearms compared with other high-income countries," said study author Erin Grinshteyn, an assistant professor at the School of Community Health Science at the University of Nevada-Reno. "These results are consistent with the hypothesis that our firearms are killing us rather than protecting us," she said in a journal news release.
Death by gun: Top 20 states with highest rates

The review of 2010 World Health Organization data also revealed that despite having a similar rate of nonlethal crimes as those countries, the United States has a much higher rate of deadly violence, mostly due to the higher rate of gun-related murders.

The researchers also found that compared to people in the other high-income nations, Americans are seven times more likely to die from violence and six times more likely to be accidentally killed with a gun.

"More than two-thirds of the homicides in the U.S. are firearm homicides and studies have suggested that the non-gun homicide rate in the U.S. may be high because the gun homicide rate is high," Grinshteyn said.

"For example, offenders take into account the threat posed by their adversaries. Individuals are more likely to have lethal intent if they anticipate that their adversaries will be armed," she explained.

Even though it has half the population of the other 22 nations combined, the United States accounted for 82 percent of all gun deaths. The United States also accounted for 90 percent of all women killed by guns, the study found. Ninety-one percent of children under 14 who died by gun violence were in the United States. And 92 percent of young people between ages 15 and 24 killed by guns were in the United States, the study found.

Murder is the second leading cause of death among Americans aged 15 to 24, the study found. The research also showed that murder was the third leading cause of death among those aged 25-34. Compared to those in the same age groups in other wealthy countries, Americans aged 15-24 are 49 times more likely to be the victim of a gun-related murder. For those aged 25-34, that number is 32 times more likely, the research revealed.

Is gun violence a public health issue?

The researchers also point out that numerous studies suggest that reduced access to guns would lower the suicide rate in the United States.

"Differences in overall suicide rates across cities, states and regions in the United States are best explained not by differences in mental health, suicide ideation, or even suicide attempts, but by availability of firearms," said study co-author David Hemenway, professor of health policy at Harvard University's School of Public Health, and director of the Harvard Injury Control Research Center and the Harvard Youth Violence Prevention Center, all in Boston.

"Many suicides are impulsive, and the urge to die fades away. Firearms are a swift and lethal method of suicide with a high case-fatality rate," he noted in the news release. Reply With Quote

cc., the word you were looking for is treveshay.

When traffickers tire of launching bundles, they switch to gringos. Reply With Quote
Dec 20, 2017 | 18:04 11 Trumps wall , is to keep out illegals , his thinking , right or wrong .
To stop drugs , well that’s impossible.... unless traffickers are executed on the spot , drugs will always be pouring in . Reply With Quote
Dec 20, 2017 | 18:35 12 Chuck, I'm sure your aware there are too many factors to be considered which affect murder/suicide rates, from poverty levels, health care availability, education possibilities and so on.
Surely there is a puter program to spit this all together, digest it and defecate it out.
A simple, one category factor or 2 or 3, if you wish, is not sufficient. Reply With Quote
