Juarez, Mexico continues to be violence hotbed

Juarez has become a deadly city where bodies, blood and gun-shell casings are commonplace in the streets.

“In 2008, more than 1,600 people were killed in drug-related violence; this year local government officials put that number at more than 2,400. The carnage is taking place in a city with a population of around 1.5 million, literally at America’s doorstep. Mexican President Felipe Calderon has declared a war on drug cartels and the way they operate their businesses.”
