Murder Across the Border, Splashed Across Your Sunday Paper

The newspapers across Texas are filled with stories this weekend of the state of life across the border in Mexican Border towns.

Baltimore’s sky-high murder rate inspired documentaries, novels and television shows in the early part of this decade.  Now, consider that, year to date, there have been over 2,200 murders this year in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, just across the border from El Paso. The Houston Chronicle tells of the murder and mayhem here.

Los Zetas, the infamous quasi-military group responsible for much of the violence in cities like Nuevo Laredo, is expanding its reach into legitimate businesses, according to the Dallas Morning-News.  Grits for Breakfast, the preeminent blog at the intersection of law and policy in Texas, also devotes significant bytes to the story here.
