AZ: Phoenix Arizona Kidnapping Capital of US

At over 370 reported cases last year alone, Phoenix Arizona ranks 2nd in the World in the number of annual reported abductions, second only to Mexico City. Additionally, Mexico is considered by some to be on the brink of collapse:

. . . Mexican Drug Cartel (MDC´s) their gangs are kidnapping and killing citizens on both sides of the U.S. Mexican border. The kidnappings and killings of Americans should be providing an unexpected challenge to President Barack Obama's new government. In its latest report anticipating possible global security risks, the U.S. Joint Forces Command states that Mexico is at risk of a "rapid and sudden collapse." . . .

. . . In what officials caution is now a dangerous and even deadly crime wave, Phoenix, Arizona has become the kidnapping capital of America, with more incidents than any other city in the world outside of Mexico City and over 370 cases last year alone . . .

Arizona´s Phoenix has become the kidnapping capital of the USA. Phoenix and Tucson police report over 400 kidnappings of Americans are being investigated and officials fear many more kidnappings and murders of Americans are already out of control.

An ABC News' investigation uncovered horrific cases of chopped-off hands, legs and heads when a victim's family doesn't pay up fast enough . . .

Some authorities admit privately that no one really knows how many Americans have been kidnapped here in the USA and taken to Mexico and how many were killed. Some of the kidnappings were for ransom, but most violence and killings were retaliation by the MDC´s.

"We're in the eye of the storm," Phoenix Police Chief Andy Anderson told ABC News of the violent crimes and ruthless tactics spurred by Mexican Drug Cartels that have expanded business across the border. "If it doesn't stop here, if we're not able to fix it here and get it turned around, it will go across the nation," he said . . .
Do you have guns & ammo? If so, good. You may one day suddenly find yourself in need of them. If you don't have any, you may want to get some, if you can find them. It is far better to have the tools of self defense and not need them, than to suddenly find yourself in great need of them & not have them.

Every time I go to Walmart I check their ammo counter to see if they have any 9mm, .45, or .22 in stock so that I can boost my ammo cache. Ever since last fall they're usually all sold out. A couple of days ago my wife scored some ammo for me during her shopping trip - Walmart happened to have four 550 rd bricks of .22. I had her buy all four. The stuff lasts forever, I'll get old long before it does.

I am amazed that no one including our Goverment is paying attention to this story and what is happining on the border in Mexico.
People of this country need to pay attention to this because the U.S. Goverment doesnt seem to care. Your right about having the tools to defened yourself. Anyone who thinks this goverment is going to protect them is a fool. If the Goverment was interested in protecting the people they would have put the military on the border as soon as 9/11 happened!

What gets me about the lack of media attention this is getting is that many people, from all sides of the political spectrum, seen to believe this is business as usual in Mexico and by extension, the US.

Presently neither the victims or perpetrators are Americans in the vast majority of these cases. Which apparently justifies a sense of apathy??

35 people were killed in 24 hours in Juarez last week in drug related violence - kidnappings, executions and a shootout with the Mexican military. If 35 people were would have been killed in Sri Lanka it would have gotten more coverage in the US and world press!

It does seem that state governments may be beginning to speak about preparations for Mexico's collapse.

Texas prepares for government collapse.
