The Tribune Weekly Chronicle out of Imperial Valley, California has Laredo as one of The 8 Most Dangerous Border Towns in America. This is their Laredo entry:
Laredo: Laredo is a South Texas city located on the north bank of the Rio Grande that borders Nuevo Laredo in Tamaulipas, Mexico. For many years, Laredo has been the target of cartel violence and drug trafficking for Mexican gangs, and has added ransom kidnappings, a high speed chase and a record-breaking weapons bust to the list of criminal activities happening there. In 2010, the U.S. Consulate in Nuevo Laredo was damaged from an explosive that was thrown over the wall by Mexican gang members.
Didn’t we just go through this again?
Does that sound dangerous to you?? Ok, it does, except everything they described is taking place on the Mexican side and not the US. I guess that is mix-ups they get by reposting something from “Criminal Justice Degrees Guide.”
Maybe they should have watched the Mileka Lincoln video on one of my previous posts. She talks with Laredo Police Department about some of the statistics pointing to Laredo being a much safer city than people assume. But there is crime, no doubt, but… one of the most dangerous cities?? ¡No’mbre!
