Another Forensic Specialist killed in Chihuahua
Shot 7 times as he ate breakfast in a small local cafe, Zoe Xhayke Lara Sanchez was killed this morning in Chihuahua. He was an instructor of the Center of Penal and Forensic Studies.

Also in the news, Insurance companies (international and local) operating in Mexico have declined to provide insurance to those who work in war-zones, specifically pilots, journalists, and police officers. For Mexico, these companies explicitly stated that war-zones include such areas as the city of Juárez, Chihuahua, the city of Reynosa, Tamaulipas and the city of Torreón, Coahuila.

A special joint operation by government military and police forces in Culiacan, Sinaloa, resulted in the capture of Griselda López Pérez, the wife of Joaquín El Chapo Guzmán Loera, leader of the Sinaloa cartel (and member of the Forbes billionaire list).

And, of course, the killings continue in their relentless pace, with 7 bodies discovered in Nuevo Casas Grandes, Chihuahua one of whom was a minor (this occurred despite the presence of over 5 thousand soldiers, 2600 federal police and another 3000 local police, a combined enforcement effort of nearly 11,000...I hope President Obama reflects on this as he continues on the worn-out path laid down for him by his predecessors, meeting force with force is just not working, it's like punching water). Nuevo León saw 5 more killings, while Chihuahua saw 3 more, Michoacán 2 and another in Sinaloa.

This brings the total to date to 3870 (4870) with the additional of 24 yesterday. For those of you wondering, this leaves the average, per day killing rate for 2010 at 29 (38)... more than one per hour now.

I have asked before, but I will ask again: WHERE IS THE OUTRAGE?
