Lucio source material from Reforma, and Proceso

Note:  Keep in mind these ratios are from “official” numbers, which are notoriously low balled, but the report gives good indication of   which cities  are experiencing the greatest criminal activity.  Also, victims injured and later die of their injuries are seldom moved to the homicide count. –lucio-

  1. Damn it looks like Zacatecas and Sonora are the safest they didnt even get mentioned. What are they doing right? Share you secret Zacatecanos n Sonoroenses!!

  2. Damn it looks like Zacatecas and Sonora are the safest they didnt even get mentioned. What are they doing right? Share you secret Zacatecanos n Sonoroenses!!

    1. Maybe the secret is not about how many crimes
      were committed, but about who, and how, counted them :-)

    2. In Sonora the people are scared of outsiders and they all comply with local mafia that come from other places of Mexico mostly from sinaloa and Michoacan. I know because I have been there many times and know people from there. I don't know about zacatecas.

  3. tamps. should be proud We r #1 in kidnapping. Got a be proud Man

  4. Does Quintana Roo Rapes include rapes of tourists ? Search online for Mexico vacation awareness. Remember the seven Spanish tourists gang raped in Acapulco a year or so back ?

  5. "Tamaulipas had the highest rate of kidnapping in the country"

    why ? I'm surprised

  6. Extortion and kidnapping seem to do well in Tamps. The cartels should remain number one through 2015. I know the competition is tough more businesses r closing so who r they goin to extort (grandma) She's got her retirement check

  7. Aqui pura gente del mencho cjng

    1. Puros granados tambien
      Soy 100 guerrerense
      Aki bien pilas en san luis la loma
      Listo pa kualkier encargo.y ay ke akabar con esas mulas templarias.

  8. If it wasn't for the Herculos force of the state police of viejidio cantu, there would be almost no kidnappings on tamaulipas...
    --that poor woman lying on the sidewalk sure looks dangerous, i wonder how bertie boy moreira is living on morelos state, and what is the contribution of el tigere leyzaola and his kidnapping experts to the crime situation in morelos???
    --i saw this morning on the news, the brother of guerrero state former governor angel aguirre rivero being indicted and invesigated for stealing from the state coffers, while angelito claims his hands are clean from tainted illegal money and bloodd, maybe he washed them real hard...
    --if the presidents, ministers, lawmakers, governors and mayors were not so busy, STEALING ALL THE RESOURCES there would be no police commiting crimes to make ends meet or heading their own crimnal bands and drug trafficking to pay piso to the government narco-mierdocracia...

    1. Well said,especially that last paragraph.

  9. Of those kidnappings in Tamps, I'm curious to know how many result in the murders of the victims? How many disappear never to be found? What percentage of those kidnapped actually get returned to families (big reach on this one)? Yep, I'm asking for too much. But it's safe to say that we should stay the hell away from Tamps. Que triste...

  10. Shit they didn't mention colima I guess it got to be one of the safest states in mexico

    1. What about michoacan? Michoacan is probably the worst of all combined

  11. No its only the border states all the rest of mexico is very safe for tourists especially tj

  12. Currently, the volcano is the most dangerous thing in Colima.

  13. Morelos is doing very bad right now and Cuauhtemoc Blanco wants to become Mayor of Cuerna Vaca, SMH es el como. We need someone like Emiliano Zapata.

  14. i guess the mexican tourism board didnt get this memo?

  15. Colima was a state with only 26 people, until punales from jalisco and michoacan went there looking for 'machetes'...
    Also it is a state smaller than a water closet, 2 square meters is not enough, lice feel like dinosaurs there...
    --their navy uses cuspidors for vessels and spoons for oars...
    --in colima, a chamberpot is a passenger liner!!!

    1. but extremely beautiful state with prolific coconut palm trees everywhere you look.Surprised it never became a tourist destination,maybe beaches aren't so great?

  16. Well I simply say the whole darn place is ruthless and dangerous. If this one had 25 murders and that one had 100, still way too many for my taste. I say "just stay out of Mexico if you don't have to live there!" Why go and give these folks an additional number to add? Also Lucio is there any updates on the girl that went missing with her child? The one from Kentucky I believe it was.

    1. Yes, a person claiming to be a family member did write to Chivis saying they were found unharmed.

      I believe a BB follower sent a comment in with a link to an update. Check the post, it should be one of the last comments if not the last.

  17. Hi Chivis, question. I travel a lot to Playa del Carmen, I love that area. There's a lot of international tourists that vacation there, do you know if the high rates in rape are towards tourists? Sounds like a question I have already answered right?

    1. I was very surprised to see PDC in this way. It has always be noted as an exceptionally safe destination.

      However, Cancun has long been spoken of about rapes occurring, and yes victims also include travelers.

      I am not sure if PDC has many rapes perpetrated on visitors..

      If you are interested, you can call the closest consulate and they can give you the list of crimes against Americans in a given month, which may help.

  18. Any update on James Stacy? Or just long gone, no sign of him will ever be seen again? ANIMALS. Also Baja California Norte y Sur are two different states.

    1. Nothing. James' family stopped actively searching for him, his mothers health was suffering. they did what they could. and had little help

    2. Thanks Chivis for your reply about Mr. Stacey. Also , there was Carl Weigand who went missing few years back too Area of Camargo/ Falcon dam. . So many . not to mention the immigrants. : ( They are not forgotten.

  19. You mean ''little help'' from the government?
    --I remember when government sponsored trucks were assisting motorists stranded on mexican highways, their mechanics were called angels, and they would even give you gas they paid for, not stolen gas milked from pemex...
    --It looks like the more time went by, corruption took hold of mexican government more firmly, from the hand of mexican geniuses ''educated'' on foreign cuntries to serve their lords of public corruption...

  20. Canadiana, it is time you send your photos to post on BB, chivis 'mayght' make a party.
    CHIVAAA!!! YOU ARE MY VALENTINE, here wishing you all the best to the woman that remembered my words long after i had forgotten them, women don't even listen to me, they are usually too busy with the looks...
    You must remember this... from As Time Goes By, singer: frank sinatra, on all the joints of all the world, including yoututbe...

    1. ok you made me smile...

      I tell young ladies, get pass the looks, because around 55 or so, cute has left the building, and what remains may be impossible to live with.

      Guys be thoughtful with your gifts, flowers candy so mindless. My most memorial Val gift was dinner cooked for me, a book of love poems and a 2 page letter about how fabulous he thinks I am.

      Happy Valentines Day...

  21. Internal conflicts, disagreements, killings within their organization...The list of problems goes on and on within their ranks. Reynosa, Matamoros, Rio Bravo, and the entire Frontera Chica will be up for grabs and won by rivals if the military leaves for even a second.

  22. Chiva you are always so lovely, hope we meet some day to compare wheelchairs... thanks...
