During the first weekend of August, at least five gunmen attacked a group on a beach, killing three men, severely wounding a man and a woman, and forcing authorities to evacuate the beach, which was crowded with tourists.
The killings pushed the state's homicide total for the weekend to 11, concentrated in Los Cabos. None of those cases have led to arrests, according to El Universal. The state also leads the country in extortion, with 133 cases this year.

According to ABC news is the U.S. State Department cautioning Americans visiting Mexico to be conscious of "allegations that consumption of tainted or substandard alcohol has resulted in illness or blacking out," within the country.
The statement added, “Following these reports and in consultation with our Posts in Mexico, we updated our Country Specific Information for Mexico to provide updated safety information regarding potentially tainted alcohol.”
The new advisory, posted Wednesday on the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Consular Affairs website for Mexico, comes after reports of alcohol-related horror stories involving tourists visiting the country have mounted.

Mexico's peso firmed on Friday, hitting its strongest level in more than 13 months after weak U.S. housing and consumer sentiment data backed bets of a slower pace of interest rate hikes in the United States.

"Corruption is the cancer that affects everything. Law in Mexico is like a f*****g circus. Nobody respects the law here.”
In a functional democracy, you’ve got to have an expectation that the laws will be enforced, especially when a person in government violates the law.
“You combine inequality with ineffective government, and you have a very toxic situation where organized crime is an alternative for young men - but it’s also a force that very few governmental actors are willing to confront.”
Duncan Wood, security analyst with the Wilson Center.
Killings continue in Mexico's Baja California Sur. Two heads have been found in a cooler just two blocks from the tourist zone of Cabo San Lucas. The state prosecutors also said the total bodies found after several days of excavation of clandestine graves had reached 18. The bodies of five women and 13 men were found in 12 graves near the Cabo Pulmo park off a road that runs between the reserve and the resort of San Jose del Cabo.

Mexico’s president, its richest man and actor Leonardo DiCaprio signed an agreement Wednesday to try to save the critically endangered vaquita porpoise.
The agreement struck by President Enrique Pena Nieto, multibillionaire telecoms magnate Carlos Slim and DiCaprio sets the goal of ending gillnet use.
“Mexico understands its responsibility as one of the countries with greatest biodiversity,” Pena Nieto said. “That is why we have implemented an historic effort to avoid the extinction of a unique species in the world and also to protect important ecosystems.”
The Gulf of California continues to be both vibrant and productive, especially for species like the critically endangered #vaquita. The Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, looks forward to continuing to work with President Peña Nieto, NGO partners, Carlos Slim and the local communities in the Gulf to reach greater progress on these important issues.

Another crook in BCS in the spotlights. Hopeful he will stay in jail. Excerpt from local opinion-website colectivopericu.net (Google translated)
"The arrest of John Moreno Rutowsky to answer to allegations of dispossession, death threats, fraud and breach of trust would not be transcendent were it not for the pseudo-activist's past as the character who, far from being a social fighter, specializes In deceiving people to make a profit such as was the case with the Punta Lobos cooperative and the artificial conflict created by him for the sole purpose of getting money (1 million pesos) from Tres Santos developers.
The criminal career of this fake advocate for social causes led him to perpetrate alleged crimes that are being officially investigated, such as blocking the federal highways, aggression and threats using, for this, the humble fishermen who believed his insane proposals to get money from whom they considered as invaders of the beaches they used to launch their boats."
As well
"The foregoing story, is just one of the alleged illegal situations that this swindler would have to answer to. There is more "dirty laundry" where he has taken entire families to ruin just for his money making mania of inventing things.
The arrogant history of the pseudo environmentalist John Moreno prompted his accuser to make a documentary that reveals the story that Rutowsky and Matijas perpetrated against Cara Singleton. Different media have spread the materials on their websites and several of them have received threats."

How much did it cost to stage that “protest”? To free a well known fishy character - John Moreno - attorney and some sort of real estate broker / adviser / agent.
The editor here - knowing PLENTY of pescaderos from +Todos Santos and Pescadero, find it hard to believe there are any fishermen who are "apollando" John Moreno, who ripped most of them off for a zillion bucks. The only thing this guy has in common with fisher men is the wording "fishy".......
And that all reported by the same newspaper that was for years recipient of a so called "bolsa negra" (ie $'s - +/- 15'000 peso bi-weekly) by Antonio Alcántar, at the time "director of communication" of the government....
(And no, the editor will not reveal and compromise his 100% trustworthy inside source of that info......)
