Kidnapping Up

The number of kidnappings in Mexico has leaped up by 60 percent in the past three years. Though that actually represents a deceleration of the 200 percent increase over five years reported last year. Of course, tracking kidnapping is always a bit tricky, because victims often have an incentive not to report it, but I think it's safe to say that the crime is becoming more frequent.
