Tijuana Mexico Crime Rate

Sandra asks…

please help i want to travel to aguascalientes mexico next month .i am afraid i might get kidnap?

Tijuana answers:

This question is out of place. I’ve already answered tyour other question. Check in that the answer.

There is not reason to get kidnapped in Aguascalientes, specially beeing a tourist. Kidnapers usually are involved on drugs, and they “kidnap” other drug dealers; or some criminals kidnap known local bussines people, not “poor” unknown tourists. Being a foreigner tourist is not as dangereus as it is beeing a local succesful bussinesman. I’m extremely clear on this, in order to make it clear to you: criminals targets for kidnap are local succesful bussinesmen, NOT unknown (probably poor, in comparission with bussinesman) foreigner tourists.

Anyway, Aguascalientes is NOT among the most danger states or cities in México. The BAD cities are Tijuana, Juarez, Laredo, Matamoros (all those are in USA border); also México city and Guadalajara are dangereus, but not as violent as the border cities. High crime rate in México is related to drugs, not to poverty; and drugs mainly flow to USA.

Maria asks…

I need help generating questions about Violence in Mexico and Travel Scare. Can anyone help me?

I have around 13 questions about this topic, but I need more. I am interviewing frequent travelers that go to Mexico and border patrol agents. I just don’t know what else to ask them. Can anyone help me conjure up some questions? Thanks.
Here are the ones that I asked….

What in your opinion is the main reason why people don’t want to travel to Mexico?
Do you think that the media has taken part in the travel scare in Mexico?
Compared to your experience in Mexico, does it match up with the medias idea of Mexico? (Compare the differences)
Do you think that our country should be strongly concerned about the violence in Mexico and what do you think the United States should do about it? How will our country take action?
Why do you think the violence in Mexico has increased?
Why do you think hostages are killed rather then being returned to their family after ransom has been paid?
Do you think travelers should avoid going down to Mexico, due to the high violence rate? Why do you think this?
Why do some American travelers travel to Tijuana (other parts of Mexico), even though there is a high crime rate? Any specific reasons?
Do you think that there are certain types of people who should be more concerned when traveling to Mexico? What kind of people are they and why do you think these types of people need to be more aware?
What possible ways could Mexico implement to help stop the violence in Mexico?
Do you think that because there is so much violence in Mexico, violence will extend across the border and into U.S. territory?
Do you feel or have any fear or caution due to what’s going on in Mexico and at our borders?
Why do you think the police in Mexico are so corrupted?
Do you think the media is controlled in Mexico? (Ex. Interviewers are threatened to not give out information when in Mexico
Do you think that the United States should do more to help solve the violence in Mexico? Why or why not?

Tijuana answers:

Q:
A: They don’t want to be robbed, kidnapped or murdered.
Q:
A: The foreign media have reported isolated incidents. The Mexican media has been bought off in some areas of the country to not report how bad things really are.
Q:
A: I have no idea what the media’s idea of Mexico is. Mexico is a not a desirable place to be at this time and may never be a desirable place to be again.
Q:
A: There are different kinds of violence in Mexico: armed robbery, kidnapping, confrontations between government forces and drug gangs, inter gang violence and random killing of civilians by drug gangs. These last two are the ones that the US government especially does not want crossing the border.
Q:.
A: Mexico has always been a violent country. There are more Mexicans now than ever. That is one reason. Another reason is the drug gangs have begun to think that they control the country and the president has declared war on them to show that they do not. The gangs brutally murder anyone suspected of being a government informer or agent. There are random attacks on policemen and other civil servants and in their frustration the gangs have taken to randomly murdering civilians, especially young people in an effort to turn public opinion against the president.
Why do you think hostages are killed rather then being returned to their family after ransom has been paid?
Q:
A: Avoid Mexico. It is only getting worse. There is no reason to risk your well being and that of your loved ones in a country that is out of control.
Q:
A: Tijuana is relatively safe in comparison to te rest of the country. It’s on the border. It’s easy to get in and out. Cheap debauchery.
Q:
A: Everyone should be concerned when travelling to Mexico. The criminals here are not especially selective about their victims.
Q:
A: The drug gangs want us to believe that if the federal govt. Calls off its war on the gangs that the violence will stop. However. Mexico was already a violent place before the war on the drug gangs. There is no short term solution. In the long run raising the general level of life in Mexico through education, developing of new resources and creation of well payingh honest jobs would help. As far as drug related violence- Mexico, USA and the rest of the world’s governments have to put an end to they theater of “war on drugs” and actually do something about illegal drug consumption inthe USA and other countries. Also the arms industry has to stop supplying the drug gangs with weaponry.
Q:
A: In some cases it already has.
Q:
A: Yes I live in fear.
Q:
A: Corruption in Mexican society is the norm and goes back to the colonial era; possibly it can be traced to Spain. Hiring people with an elementary school education to be police officers and paying them the equivalent of $800 USD per month makes it pretty likely that they will become corrupt.
Q:
A: Your question is a bit unclear, but I’ll try and answer. Since Vicente Fox became president in 2000 the media in Mexico have enjoyed more freedom than ever. Still the media are biased. Some media companies and journalists are openly supportive of president Calderón’s party, others are biased toward the party to which Mexico City’s mayor belongs and the largest media group is loyal to a state governor who plans to run for president next year. In this last example the local media in the state capital and the largest media company in Mexico give this state governor preferential treatment and downplay the violence and corruption in his administration and state.
Q:
A: If there were any money that could be made for an influential American country by “solving the violence in Mexico” the US government would become involved.
