Former Clemson volleyball player Tatiana Mirutenko was struck by a stray bullet and killed while celebrating her wedding anniversary on a trip to Mexico City over the weekend.

According to reports, the 27-year-old San Francisco resident was with her husband in an upscale neighborhood around Mexico City Saturday when gunmen on motorcycles fired shots at a bouncer at a nearby bar and a stray bullet hit Mirutenko in the head.

“She would give 200 percent. As a mother, we always say things, but she inspired me to be better,” her mother Natalie Mirutenko said to KGO-TV in San Francisco. “I’d give my life if she could just come back.”

Mexico is well on its way to being a failed state, much like Colombia was when Escobar was alive. It's a shame because it was a great country.

It's gone too far for civilized justice to prevail. They need to get downright fascist with those savage cunts and just hunt them down and kill them off.

Chicago actually had more murders and shootings last year than Mexico City. Plenty of collateral damage on Chicago's streets. Every day there are stories about kids, parents, teachers, etc shot by stray bullets.  The population of Mexico City is also much larger than any US city.  Wait, maybe Chicago is also a failed state.

I got to see Vicente Fox at a Speaker Series talk a couple of years ago.  He is an extremely intelligent man, but along with most of the Mexican government, he has an extreme case of denial.  According to him, Mexico does not have a “drug preoblem”. Mexico will rarely extradite criminals to the US if they would face capital punishment.

Do they still have road maps in gas stations so the military can find their way?

I once said essentially the same thing about an apparently psychotic ex-girlfriend.... Several years later, who knew?! I was back there several times over the course of several weeks.... It was quite enjoyable.

I'd go back again, but she's dead now, and probably not very much fun in her current state.

News flash, Mexico has long been a failed state. Don't believe me? Just look at all their citizen who would run across desert and wade through the Rio Grande-e-o to escape the place.

I shudder when I see people throwing around statistics without understanding what's really going on. Last time I was in Mexico, 4 sherrifs had been executed in a month, the Mexican military was on corners with machine guns, and I had to ride in an armored Lincoln navigator to cross the border and get to work.  You people comparing it to the US are so far off it's unbelievable.

2015 data per 100K Mexico 16.9, US 4.9. Pretty straight forward. General agreement on multiple web sites.

What the causes or impacts on quality of life versus freedoms is better left to PA.

Had a moment back in the early 80's driving in a caravan of several cars carrying high school kids on a straight through drive down Baja to a place on the central coast boasting a series of excellent point breaks about even with Catavina on the main highway called 7 Sisters. It was a week long school biology class  field trip and I was a parent volunteer chaperone/paramedic. Cool trip, we camped on the beach and the kids had morning class in applied biology in a makeshift classroom on the beach and had ocean and sand dune play in the afternoon. I surfed all day.....every day........oh....and "chaperoned". :lol:

Anyway, around 2am we came up on a plateau on the two lane highway and it was partially blocked by 50 gallon barrels with fires in the barrels. Out of the darkness stepped about 15 federalies all wearing black with balaclavas covering their faces and carrying automatic weapons. Nobody pointed any weapons at us but it was quite intimidating even for myself who had spent my teen years surfing in much of northern Baja, I had never experienced anything quite like this. One of our group was fluent in spanish and after about 10 minutes of conversation, satisfied with our reason for being on the road at such a late hour, and provided with gifts of cold Cokes and a few sammies they let us go on about our business. Turns out their story was that stretch of road was recently plagued by bad guys robbing truckers at gunpoint and the road blocks were setup periodically to "discourage" that sort of activity.

Intimidated the heck out of us.

exactly, be polite, drive norm and  definitely don't try to skirt the roadblock..    keep valuables hidden..  don't keep a lot of cash in your wallet..

friend said he was leaving playa de carmen in a shuttle bus,  obvious drunk driver in a car ahead..    police car u-turned and pulled the shuttle over..  "office" reached in the window and grabbed the cash out of his tip jar.. let him go..        shuttle driver told him, always leave a couple of dollars in the tip jar, for the shake downs, hide the rest..  never went after the drunk driver as he probably drank all his money..

When I was in Puerto Vallarta in the late 70's my dad pointed out a police recruiting poster. It listed the duties and requirements as well as the compensation - part of which was "Mordida" or "bite".

That was the monthly average bribes they could expect from the job - actually listed as part of the compensation package.

the mordida must have been high

Two prisoners have escaped from a jail in Mexico's northern Sinaloa state by disguising themselves as prison guards.

The two walked out of the prison's main gate in Culiacán wearing uniforms.

They were escorted by two guards believed to have been in their pay who also drove the getaway cars.

Officials said Carlos Salmón and Julián Grimaldi were considered "highly dangerous" inmates and had been held in special cells to prevent them from escaping.

They had originally been held in federal prisons, which have higher levels of security, but were returned to the Aguaruto prison in Culiacán after they had successfully appealed against the order to hold them in federal penitentiaries.

Grimaldi was arrested in February and is accused of being a financial operator for the Sinaloa cartel, one of the most powerful criminal organisations in Mexico.

He is also suspected of having taken part in an ambush in September 2016 during which five soldiers were killed.

Salmón was arrested two years ago on suspicion of being the leader of a gang of hit men. He is accused of carrying out an attack on a police convoy in 2012 in which seven officers were shot dead.

The two prisoners managed to sneak past six security checks during their escape.

There have been a number of high-profile prison escapes in Mexico in past years, the most famous being that of the leader of the Sinaloa cartel, Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzmán.

The top forensic official in Mexico's Jalisco state has been fired after it emerged some 150 corpses were being stored in a refrigerated trailer because local mortuaries were full.

But Luis Octavio Cotero denied he was responsible for the storage of the unclaimed bodies, and accused the state government of making him a scapegoat.

The trailer was spotted in at least two areas of Guadalajara city.

But Mr Cotero was quoted by the Excelsior newspaper as saying the decision to rent the trailer had been made by the office of the state attorney general two years ago, as a temporary solution to handle the growing number of bodies.

He also said there was a second trailer that contained a further 150 bodies.

Honestly, renting/buying a refer truck is a pretty good idea for storing them if they ran out of space as a stopgap measure.

though, at what point in time do you say.  Fuckit. And start burying or creamating the bodies....

i would imagine that folks are not claiming the bodies since they can’t afford to properly take care of the deceased.

That's not working in the Philippines.

That's a reaction, not an answer.
