The Deadliest City

Juarez, Mexico, is just across the border from El Paso, Texas, which makes it prime real estate for drug traffickers to move narcotics into the U.S. Rival drug gangs have now turned the city into a battlefield, with more than 2,000 murders so far in 2009. That's 10 times more than in 2007. CNN's Don Lemon speaks with the Juarez mayor and a reporter from the Los Angeles Times about why the city has become the deadliest in the world.

    Well lets take a wild guess here. Maybe because it is full of drugs and dealers? Since everyone seems to on a mission to leagalize drugs here i would imagine our cities will catch up . I just hope my state isnt foolish enough to follow.
