The Danger In Mexico Isn't The Racing

I was very concerned after receiving an alarming letter from a good friend in Mexico (Whom I will leave nameless for obvious reasons)regarding the wars (yes you read that correctly) between drug cartels fighting amongst themselves and the Mexican Army and police. It his letter he talks not just about the people involved that are fighting and dieing but also about innocent civilians whom are being killed as well as women and children and stresses his sincere concern for the safety of the Coyote Convoy. He stresses his concern by stating that the cartels are looking for money or trucks or women and is very serious situation.

Seven of the deaths occurred in violence-plagued Ciudad Juarez, Mexico's murder capital, bringing to 62 the number of people killed in the city over the past week. That's "ONE WEEK" folks.

The 18 other slayings overnight included four people fatally shot by automatic weapons fire in a bar in the town of Camargo, near the state capital Chihuahua City, and two women whose bodies were found stuffed in the trunk of an abandoned car in the same town, prosecutors said.

So far this year, more than 850 people have been killed while more than 2,660 were killed there in 2009, according to official figures.

The Department of State has issued this Travel Warning to inform U.S. citizens traveling to and living in Mexico about the security situation in Mexico.

to address LCP safety concerns I suggest We need a " no racers left behind "
LCP policy
this would go a long way in addressing the fear of being left behind in a remote area w/o cell phone reception
any one else think this a good idea ??
