Well, let's tear out their hearts and see if that does. It's a brutal, simplistic approach, but I think it is common in a gangster society, and especially one where the authorities are either cowed or corrupted.

Here is a 2009 article out of Harvard that explains the increase in violence since the rigid control of the PRI was removed. http://www.gov.harvard.edu/files/Sab...edOnline_0.pdf

This article http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-latin-america-10681249 has nice maps. At the bottom there is a map that lets you put your cursor over the particular state and see the death rate. There is a place at the top of the map to let you choose the year. There's also a chart at the very bottom. Chihuahua is particularly horrific, but is better in 2011 than 2010. In Yucatan the rate remains quite low.

This is an interesting blog with a recent entry on an arrest of one of the drug kingpins in late September and what that means. http://borderviolenceanalysis.typepad.com
It's so scary.

These are the cities I could choose:
  • CHIHUAHUA
  • CULIACAN
  • CIUDAD MENDOZA
  • GUADALAJARA
  • MORELIA
  • MONTERREY
  • SALTILLO
  • TOLUCA
  • XALAPA
  • ZACATECAS
  • GOMEZ PALACIO
  • MEXICO CITY
  • DURANGO
  • MINATITLAN
  • PUEBLA
  • TEPIC
  • TORREON
  • VERACRUZ PUERTO
