At one point the author writes:
There was a brief lull in the slaughter earlier this year after President Felipe Calderón sent 10,000 soldiers and federal agents to occupy the city and take over the municipal police force. In February and March, there were days when no one was slain in Ciudad Juarez, but now a dozen people are found dead every day.The reporting on Juárez has dropped off a great deal since the army arrived, and I've been curious about whether or not the decline in violence has persisted. Evidently not. But a dozen deaths a day? That would put Juárez on a pace to triple its murder rate from last year. In fact, a dozen bodies a day may be overstated: in May, 111 people died in Juárez. This is a sharp and worrying uptick, but well short of 12 murders a day.
Update: However, this article says that 139 have died in June thus far, which is pretty darn close to a dozen a day.
