    Come-on guys! The article “Attacks against security forces in Morelia, Michoacán leave 15 dead,” captioned above, is a COMPLETE LIE. Reading the article, most of these deaths occurred in Nuevo Leon. There was a shooting reported near Lazaro Cardenas, Michoacan, but there were NO shootings in Morelia, as the title says. As a resident of Pátzcuaro, Michoacan (near Morelia) I DEMAND that you correct this misleading and inflammatory report.

    • James Switzer Says:

      Mr. Yett, after a re-reading of the actual story, we find that you are absolutely correct. But it was not a lie, it was just a mistake on our translator’s part.

      We will attempt to make the correction as soon as we can; being that we have a lot of articles to read daily to try and bring out the most pertinent.

      Thank you for bringing this error to our attention. We do wish that this report be as accurate as possible. Please let us know if we make any more such errors.

      Chairman, National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers
