Acapulco, Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, and Los Cabos are considered popular tourist locations in Mexico due to their spectacular scenery . However, last week’s rape case in Acapulco–where 5 Spanish women were sexually abused by a group of men– raised a discussion regarding sexual violence and the lack of attention political leaders, such as Mayor Walton, have dedicated to sexual crimes against women and children who live in these sites. An important issue to consider is that if the authorities continue to ignore the violence against locals, it will not be long until this violence starts affecting visitors and the tourist industry. http://www.eluniversalmas.com.mx/editoriales/2013/02/62960.php

“I would rather have them mourn in their house than have to mourn a death in my own”. This is the comnment Martha Casarrubias made when she was asked about the self-defense case that involves her brother-in-law, Dr. Roman Gomez.
About a week and a half ago, Dr. Roman Gomez confronted and killed two out of three extortionists who attacked him in his office. The case arises ethical questions concerning his rightful or criminal actions. Did Dr. Gomez act appropiately, is he an assassin, did he save himself from ofenders, or will he have to hide from criminals for the rest of his life?
