Mexico: 93 murders per day

This is impressive, but not in a good way:


Here's a segment from the report:
Much of the increase since 2015 has been attributed to organized crime, especially in areas where organized-crime groups are clashing or where larger criminal groups have fragmented into smaller factions.
Such fragmentation often leads to more violence as smaller groups compete with each other. Those groups are also more likely to prey local populations, adding to insecurity.

I don't know what a Failed State needs to look like, but surely it starts like this. So congrats once again for re-capturing and extraditing El Chapo Guzman, guys.
