Juárez, can you spare some troops?

The Laguna's 118 murders so far this year represent a doubling of the rate from last year, and put the city on pace for about 480 this year. That would make the city roughly as violent as Detroit or Baltimore. It also could not be more diametrically opposed to how the city was when I first moved here in 2005. It was Mayberry, with cowboy hats and Spanish.
