Mapping The Dead – Mexico’s Drug War

More than 40,000 dead in just over a year! Through the work I do I have heard horrendous stories from Mexicans seeking refugee status in Canada. This map illustrates the awful reality for those just trying to live a normal life there.

  • The RED balloons are civilians.
  • The RED balloons with a dot are politicians, and other high profile killings.
  • The BLUE balloons are police officers and soldiers (and other law enforcement).
  • The BLUE balloons with a dot are high ranking officers.
  • The YELLOW suns represent car bombs while the 2 GREEN people represent mass graves.

I wonder how many dots the U.S. has.
