  1. That's sure to boost tourist numbers NOT

  2. That's just good news for Mexico to wreck it's economy. The President saying no to U.S. Special forces help in wiping out the cartels, then the President releases chaps girlfriend with drugs, the President is taking money, pretty obvious

    1. To be honest I totally understand the Mexican President's refusal. Sensitive matters involving issues of national sovereignty should be discussed in private, not on Twitter. Trump's stupid public tweet left no way for the President of Mexico to save face.

    2. Don't forget he gives hugs and poems.

  3. If the woman wasn’t shot on purpose then technically it’s not an execution. The headline you have is wrong.

  4. Damn and my group and I had stopped at that 7/11 on our way back from a night of partying at la vaquita. The entire night was hella sketchy kids kept going up to us on la quinta ave. trying to sell us dope we kept saying no at the club the same crap they kept following us upstairs to the men's restroom trying to sell us cocaine every single time we went up all this happened at la vaquita im sure all clubs on that strip have dealers doing the same crap trying to sell the partygoers thats my first and last time doing that forsure

  5. And playa used to be just a sleepy fishing village. MexicN rappers? Wtf. This is the USA fault for the bad rap music. Cuz somebody is always gonna pop a cap up in a shitty rap concert.

  6. Was considering going to 5th Ave for a bit one of these nights while on vacation but f' that!

  7. One would hope someone would put her out of our misery.
