There are allegations that Haitians sell drugs in Mexicali

Jul 21, 2017

“Desperation would be one of the causes for some members of the Haitian community in Baja California to start selling drugs”, according to an activist and member of the board of the State Council of Attention to Migrants, this is the situation in Mexicali. His name Jose Javier Lopez, who is also a Baja California Opera professor, and he has been conducting an investigation among the Haitians that are currently living in shelters. Unfortunately Lopez found that these poor people are living in subhuman conditions in two of these shelters, mainly due to the extremely high temperatures and lack of air conditioning. This situation has been made known to the state authorities in order for them to provide these migrants with better living conditions and the opportunity to work legally so that they do not have to engage in illegal acts. Apparently, several cases of Haitians dealing drugs on the streets of Mexicali have been reported. “Despair, particularly in Mexicali, where sometimes they don’t even have anything to eat, is what makes these people turn to illegal acts. We are reporting this situation to the competent authorities hoping they will take action on this matter,” López concluded....

ALEJANDRO and two other people blamed Francisco and Gerardo for breaking an entry into ALEJANDRO’s father and violently robbed him so he and two other men looked for the alleged robbers and found Gerardo, took him to a house where they tortured and beat him until he admitted his guilt and revealed his accomplice name and whereabouts. As soon as they found Francisco Javier they bet unconscious both men and abandoned them in an empty lot in a community called La Panga, Francisco had severe injuries in face and skull and died shortly after that. While ALEJANDRO was sentenced to 25 years in prison, his alleged accomplice, Raul Roman, after a process that is technically known as abbreviated trial, was sentenced to 13 years, this a regretful matter, sad end for two men who thought it would be easy to take justice in their own hands, driven by rage and desperation they wound up as homicides and locked up for a lot of time, this must become a “wake up call” for police authorities and the Oral Justice System to try to do a better...

American family’s vacation in Playa del Carmen turns tragic

American family’s vacation in Playa del Carmen turns tragic

Jul 14, 2017

PLAYA DEL CARMEN, Q. Roo — An American family’s luxury vacation ended in tragedy when a brother and sister in their early 20s drank by the pool and were found floating face down and unconscious at a five-star Mexican resort. The girl died. The Daily Mail reports that Abbey Conner, 20, and her brother Austin, 22, were on a family vacation to Paraiso del Mar, a five-star resort just north of Playa del Carmen. They had drinks at the pool bar. Next thing Abbey was found floating in the pool, foam coming out her nose. Austin was also found floating in the pool. Abbey later died after she was declared brain-dead. The family from Pewaukee, Wisconsin were on the resort property for only a couple of hours with their mother Ginny and their stepfather John McGowan, before both Abbey and Austin were found face down in the pool. After Abbey was declared brain dead she was eventually taken off life support. The last thing Austin remembers is doing a shot that looked like a ‘Jägerbomb’ — a shot of Jägermeister commonly mixed with beer or Red Bull, with a group of young men that had invited them for a drink. They drank one together and that was it. The next thing Austin recalls is waking up in an ambulance. “I’ve been in college for five years and had my fair share of drinks before,” Austin said. “No way in hell I’m putting my face down in a pool and going to sleep.” “Knowing that we got played or are victims of some sick person drugging us is almost surreal,” he said. At 6’2″ and 155lbs, he didn’t feel drunk before he blacked out. They also were meeting their parents for dinner and weren’t looking to get drunk. Click here for full article Source:...
