Will US declare Baltimore, St. Louis, Detroit,
New Orleans & Chicago as "No Go" Zones?
Baltimore has 56 killings per 100,000 residents per year.
Chicago has 28 killings per 100,000 residents per year.
St. Louis has 59 killings per 100,000 residents per year.
Detroit has 54 killings per 100,000 residents per year.
St. Louis is #1 and Baltimore is #2 in the USA for murders per capita.
Top 30 killing cities in USA.
The second highest rate in Mexico is 62 killings per 100,000, the first is 83 killings per 100K residents. Shouldn't Mexico also declare "No Go Zones" in the USA of our top 5 murder capitals per 100K residents? If they did, it would only be fair.
It would seem St. Louis, Baltimore, Detroit, and New Orleans would qualify as "No Go Zones" too. So, why hasn't the Federal govt made same declarations against them too?
What prompted me to look at this? It was this article about "No Go Zones"
for US personnel in Mexico or those visiting Mexico. Uh, are we so far off?
Shouldn't the above US cities become "No Go Zones" according to our govt, ALSO???
Well, wouldn't that be "RACIST!" since most of those cities are large ethnic, particularly
of African background? "Take them out of the jungle, but can't take the jungle out of them?"
I remember that saying back during the 60's. Have these cities now proven it?! No.
Because the majority aren't doing the killing, but there is a significant minority in those
minority populations doing most of the killing.
So, compare America to Mexico and it's "No Go Zones" as defined by our govt.
The State Department unveiled a revamped travel warning system Wednesday, giving five Mexican states the sternest "do not travel" advisory alongside war-torn nations like Syria, Yemen and Somalia.
All five states -- Tamaulipas on the U.S. border and Sinaloa, Colima, Michoacan and Guerrero on the Pacific coast -- are hotspots of drug cartel activity, either hosting trafficking routes or extensive drug-crop cultivation.
However, at least two Mexican resorts -- Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo and Acapulco -- are in a do-not-travel state, Guerrero, and last year, the State Department extended a total ban on personal travel by U.S. government personnel there.
The no-travel states had mostly already lost much foreign tourism.
Colima..... now has Mexico's highest homicide rate, with 83.3 killings per 100,000 residents, according to figures for the first 11 months of 2017.
The state with second-highest homicide rate -- 61.6 per 100,000 -- was Baja California Sur,
Speaking to local media earlier this week, Tourism Secretary Enrique De la Madrid said, "In my opinion, the most important challenge we have in the tourism sector are crime events occurring where they didn't before, for example in Cancun, la Paz and Los Cabos." (more in article)
