Five of the world’s 10 most violent cities are in Mexico according to a study by the Citizen Council for Public Safety and Criminal Justice. Honduras’ San Pedro Sula is number one of the 50 top cities, with 159 murders per 100,000 inhabitants. Ciudad Juarez is now second, followed by Acapulco with 128 per 100,000, Torreón with 88, Chihuahua with 83, and Durango with 80. Due to increased violence in 2012, Monterrey has risen and now surpasses Veracruz.
The operational head of the Highway Patrol of the Department of Public Safety and Civil Protection of Acapulco, Angel Leonardo Morales Haro, was shot by gunmen who wounded him severely and later died at the hospital.
Mexico is a leading producer in amphetamines. There is a systematic increase in demand for synthetic drugs, said Jorge Montaño, a member of the International Narcotics Control Board (INCB) of the UN. Mexico became the largest producer of methamphetamine in the hemisphere, so that Mexican criminal organizations have the ability to provide for a growing market of domestic consumption but also for America. The number of dismantled labs in Mexico jumped from 21 in 2008 to 191 in 2009. So far in there have been 106 in Mexico, with Mocorito, Sinaloa the municipality with the most labs found.
A group leader of a state police investigation unit was shot and killed Sunday. Manuel Roberto Garzón Valdez, 39 years old, went from patrol to investigations in July 1999 and became a group leader in September 2007. He was found dead in his official vehicle with wounds to the head.
