Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto has strongly denied his government spied on prominent journalists and activists by hacking their phones. He said there was "nothing more false" than to suggest his government was behind the installation of spyware.
The software, known as Pegasus, was sold to Mexican federal agencies by Israeli company NSO Group on the condition that it only be used to investigate criminals and terrorists.

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.

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......)

In Mexico, journalism can get you killed! The group Reporters Without Borders says that Mexico is the country with the third highest rate of journalist killings in the world, preceded only by Syria and Afghanistan.
It says more than 100 journalists have been killed there since 2000, with most of the killers never coming to justice.
It is shameful that journalism can still be a matter of life and death

Murder - Homicides statistics "they" (officials in charge of protecting free journalism or financial interests/tourism promoters) do not want you to see!
Shown data (source: Secretariado Ejecutivo del Sistema Nacional de Seguridad Pública) has been processed to be presented in an easy to interpret format.
Homicides statistics follow the trend reported by the INEGI (Instituto Nacional de Estadística y Geografía).
INEGI homicide data tends to be more precise. Forensic coroners and the INEGI simply don’t have the same incentives to lower the number of homicides that happen as the police.

Western Baja California Sur state, popular with international tourists and expats, has seen growing gangland violence over the last several months.
A shootout near the Mexican beach resort of Los Cabos early on Monday between suspected gang members and navy forces has left eight dead, including one soldier.
The incident took place before dawn on the outskirts of San Jose del Cabo, about 20 miles (30km) northeast of the area's main tourist hub of Cabo San Lucas.

With plenty of sugar-coating, marketing spin-doctors social media tweaking and restricted reporting Baja California Sur remains a tourism hot spot. In the meantime did the state of Baja California Sur for the month of March receive a Mexico - nationwide top ranking in intentional homicide (murder) and is also in the front at the extortion statistics.
What has been done so far - well, the murder-spree moved from +La Paz Baja California Sur BCS to +San Jose del Cabo, there is tons of #lipservice in the media but otherwise: nada!!
Ubtil this region makes money there will be no change.....
