  1. But, but, but they say Mexico is safe, to travel, I tell you, I tell you,
    Homicides will continue, as I write this comment 3 persons have been murdered.

    1. It is safe if you arrive at your destination via plane.

    2. Nah it's ok, the worst that can happen is getting your leg chopped off.

    3. Dang, another mass shooting in the US, thus time at a Walmart and they don't even have a drug war!

    4. Mexico seems to amaze me, murder capital of the world, it used to be Brazil many years ago.

    5. El Salvador and Honduras are the murder capitals of the world, South Africa averages about 60 murders a day. Heck, back in the 70s Santa Cruz California was the murder capital of the world.

    6. 10:27 But but but how can you be sure.
      In El Salvador El president Buckaque
      has, all the Salvador Truther gang members in prison, as a matter of fact, no murders have occurred.

    7. 11:22 That's right. Hopefully El Salvador keeps it like that

    8. 7:28 as I answer your comment, another 2 murders in progress.
      There are safe areas, just don't go to bad hoods, you should survive. Don't go with Gold chains and late model car, otherwise your asking for it.

    9. And yet again the But But But poster puts words in other peoples mouths so he can disprove them, without ever saying exactly who says this, why they say it, or what it might mean. If you are going to be sarcastic make sure people understand what your actual target is. This is Guanajuato- who says Guanajuato is safe to visit? Who?

    10. 3:27 you need a vaccine against but,but,but fever,
      with a meat syringe...

    11. 3:27 you really need a metal syringe, that they use for cows, to stop your but but but fever.the article is about homicides, and believe me they are non stop.

    12. Dumb ass @3:27
      This article mentions about killings in Guanajuato and being dangerous, here your in here like Lopez Obrador, oh oh no, no such killings.

    13. 3:27 sorry you can't hide what transpires under the carpet.

  2. Good luck to my Mexican friends in the fifa world Cup

    From a scotland fan 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

    1. 8:07 Good luck to you too, just don't wonder into not safe towns.

    2. I won't, I live in Scotland lol 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

    3. Scotland is dangerous too, Vikings with bow and arrows.

    4. I hope the catch the donal' and shot up his ass full of arrows until he looks like an oringe turkey, after they pull down his pants and give him the biggest wedgie the world has ever seen;
      for stealing Scotland land for his goddamn golf club...

    5. Relax 2:43, you'll live longer

    6. 8:40 lo tás amenazando?
      It could be El Mencho, Güey!!!

    7. 2:43 the Scots better take it easy, or the anglos will wipe their ass with the Scots again.

  3. When CDS to help you out, they start with indiscriminate attacks to alarm the Public and cause confusion. Mass murders at bars and brothels like in Ciudad Juarez is a CDS SPECIALTY.

    1. Dude I’m from Juarez and I can tell you that 99.99% of those murdered in Juarez are involved some way some how .. other than the students that were mistakenly shot up in 2010 … NO ONE here is innocent …. NO ONE!

    2. 7:33 Como veo tu mama y tu papa tambien son culpables! Culpables de haverte tenido, mejor te uvieran aventado a la taza del baño o lla de plano te uviera tragado tu mama

    3. 7:33 Aunque de cierta manera tienes razon, mas del 90% de los levantados / ejecutados son blanco por motivos especificos, entre ello, estar involucrados de alguna de sus muchas formas...

      Tambien hay victimas circunstanciales y totalmente inocentes....
      -No pagaron cuota
      -Les toco precenciar algun evento
      -Sabian demasiado
      -Estaban cerca de algun "objetivo" al momento de los hechos...
      -Eran objeto de venganza (como cuando matan niños)
      -Ser abogado de "alguien"
      -y un largo etc...

      2:38 De chiquito nunca te hicieron terminar la primaria?
