CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico -- The city of Juarez experienced only five days without any homicides occurring during all of 2020, making it the fourth deadliest year of all time.

Officials indicated a total of 1,644 people were killed throughout the year that just ended, which was an increase of 145 murders from 2019.

Prosecutors told El Diario that nearly 80 percent of all the killings in 2020 were tied to disputes over drug territory by organized crime cartels.

The bulk of the killings involved shootings, the majority of which occurred on public roadways, officials said.

Nationally, figures provided by the Mexican military indicated cartel drug activity soared in 2020, with nearly a 500% rise in opiod production and smuggling efforts.

    1. Sure comrade turner. The families of the victims will stop whining and crying right after they bury their dead. You pompous asshole. You are the one that wants these criminals over here. You provide for them on your dirt farm so you said. You are the one that needs to be canceled pendejo.

      1. No one wants criminals here asshole. Drug dealers do not want farm work you moron. I’m talking about the public at large who want to keep drugs illegal so we will have continual violence. Not the families of the victims asshole.

        1. The hoods you support are not workers they are criminals. You want them here that means you are the problem. Pendejos like you thinking they you are doing society a favor by hiring illegals so they can run their drugs under your humongous nose. So where is your sympathy for the real victims? You are just a pathetic loser nazi disguised as a human being.

  1. Because it’s SHIT TOWNE! And the damn democraps want this garbage coming over. There’s already enough… Just look at Alberto and Turner…. The butt fking shitstains!!!

          1. Of course I voted for Sleepy Joe. All decent Americans did. Only anti-American filth voted for the leader of the white trash.

        1. You’re a moron. In order to be charged with treason you have to give aid and comfort to the enemy. We aren’t at war you stupid asshole.

  2. How many members of the orange buffoon administration have been indicted and charged with crimes? Biden will have no one indicted. His son will not be charged with anything but he may have to pay some penalties to the IRS. Should that occur, his CPA will pay them.

    1. You are living in denial land. Hunter’s own computer explains it all. Your mentally deranged wanna be president and his son are going down. Soon you too for hiring illegals in your dirt farm.

    1. Will never happen. Trump hasn’t done anything illegal. His leaked taxes proved that. The corrupt leftist swine Vance can fabricate all the “evidence” he wants. It will never stick. Vance is a bigger embarrassment to the legal field than the Clintons.

  3. Disgustingly unified Trump patriots who philosophy is ‘Might Makes Right’ WAY TO TO POST UP AND STAND YOUR GROUND AGAINST THE DITTO HEAD TRUMP Gang, Mr. MARK TURNER.
