Army Takes Over Tijuana

Tijuana, the Mexican border town where Americans go to do things they couldn’t get away with in California, has a new government that might not take so kindly to their visitations: the Mexican army. Drug wars in the city, which have killed an astounding 650 people since January, have caused President Felipe Calderón to hand the city over to the Mexican army, marines, and state police in the city. Tijuana’s proximity to the United States makes it a profitable drug hub. The military took over after purges of corrupt local policemen left the force in disarray.
