The forces driving violence in Mexico, which is now on track for its worst year in decades, were first set in motion 20 years ago. The drug trade moved to Mexico just as its politics and institutions were in flux, leaving them unable to address a problem they have often made worse.
Last year there were more than 20,000 killings. This year is on track to be worse, exceeding the 2011 record, which was thought to be the drug war’s apex.
Since the beginning of crisis, said Alejandro Hope, a security analyst, “there has been a significant change in the way organized crime works in Mexico.” Drug trafficking required resources and infrastructure that the new groups lacked, leading many to turn to kidnapping, theft and extortion. Predatory crimes spiked.
Mexicans seem keenly aware that their government is growing less responsive just as streets are becoming more dangerous. Polls show growing dissatisfaction, particularly over corruption.

The outcome of this negotiation will impact all of us! From the little pangero at the marina to multi-international corporations. Donald Trump may be about to end Nafta, plunging the US, Canada and Mexico into uncertainty
The Canadian foreign minister, Chrystia Freeland, put it this way: "We have seen proposals that would turn back the clock on 23 years of predictability, openness and collaboration under Nafta. This is troubling."

A sad reality and unfortunately repeated way to often.... :)
The execution style murdering/killings in Baja Sur, particular in +San Jose del Cabo and +La Paz Baja California Sur BCS continues. All you need to do is check the #policiaca section in one of the opinion websites publishing news and you can do a count and may compare it with one of the global "crime hubs" and per capita statistics and you see how had it actually is.
Of course they (local media and authorities) try to to keep that low-key as their main concern is tourism. After all the years with significant crime they still no understand that sugar-coating does not help a bit.
It is not a question IF but WHEN the excuse of "this is just criminals infighting/turfwars" will no longer apply anymore and visiting foreigner will become targets of kidnappings and/or get killed.
Last night, a new twist in La Paz with the killing of 2 men on the roof of a house.

Couple's dream trip to Loscabos Mexico turns into "holiday from hell" as they are chased from their luxury hotel by "bill collectors" they suspect had Mexican drug cartel connections, who demanded "$10,000 for medical bills"
Ms Gelston claimed the hotel told them to pay the medical center within the next hour but the concerned couple contacted their insurance company, who told them they weren't safe, arranging for them to leave at 2am.
The couple ran to a nearby American hotel however more trouble arose at the airport.
Ms Gelston said an American Airlines attendant and armed Mexican police told the couple they "weren't getting on the flight until we paid [the money] and if we didn't pay it, we would be taken to jail until it was paid".
After negotiations with their insurance company, the embassy and Mexican authorities, the couple were finally able to leave the country.
