I was thinking that one of my closest friends was exaggerating when he told me his dad's story. His dad was some high ranked police officer (sorry, I don't remember status names at all) in Tijiuana and during a war between one of the cartels and the police, his partner died in an RPG explosion. Luckily, my friend's dad had only got shot on the thigh but he definitely called it quits after that mess and moved out here and bought a house where my friend spends most of his time with him. Only now, after reading your post did my friend's story really hit hard. It's upsetting to know that it's so horrifying down there and even worse that lots of citizens here only have bad things to say about Mexican families simply wanting a way out. I mean I know jumping the border and everything is bad and yes, it would be insane with a massive flow of immigrants suddenly pouring into America but we'd all do the same if we lived down there and any of you wouldn't DARE say otherwise. I'm still not saying illegal immigration is ok, I'm just saying that now we here at Sevenstring have some insight as to what it's really like down there. Especially myself having spoken to my friend's dad and all. Do what you can to be heard, be intelligible about EVERY word you send to the media, do something. The crooked law enforcement down there sickens me and I just hope something is done to at least contain the bloodshed.
