This past weekend, a group of gunmen in Ciudad Juarez opened fire on a house party, killing 16 teenagers.
Apparently, drug violence has been prevalent in the city for the past three years, and officials believe this shooting reflected the trend. However, there is no evidence that the victims were involved in gangs or drug use.
Recently, federal police vowed to send 2,000 additional officers to patrol Cuidad Juarez. Hopefully, they will now follow through with this and take the situation more seriously.
