Gunmen Hit Nuevo Laredo Paper

More evidence that Mexico is just one revolutionary group away from turning into Colombia:

Men toting AK-47s barge into El Mañana, Nuevo Laredo's leading daily newspaper, shooting up the newsroom.

From the San Antonio Express-News:
Two men, wearing black ski masks, forced themselves into the newspaper's reception area about 7:40 p.m. and opened fire into the adjoining newsroom, said Daniel Rosas, managing editor of El Mañana.
One reporter was injured in the attack. Nuevo Laredo has become incredibly dangerous for journalists lately.

Oh my goodness! That's insane. I use to live in Laredo, and I would go to Nuevo Laredo almost daily. I didn't know that it had gotten so bad over there.

Another example of just how out of hand the criminals are in Mexico. There is no end in sight as there is basically no law or enforcement there either. Now we know why illegals ,millionaires, and movie stars alike are abandoning their own "patria" in droves . The corrupt "government" there is of no help either .
