I’m more disappointed to learn that Chicago is more dangerous than Mexico City.
Maybe we need to wall off diverse cities as well as the border.
Mexican police have made no arrests in the stray-bullet death of a 27 year old Chicago area woman, three days after she was struck down in front of an upscale Mexico City restaurant.
Witnesses and investigators have said that Tatiana Mirutenko had just left dinner Saturday evening with her husband, when gunmen speeding by on a motorcycle opened fire-apparently aiming at a bouncer in a nearby bar.
Mirutenko was shot in the head and killed. She was celebrating her first wedding anniversary on the trip. She and her husband were married last summer on July 1 in Chicago, were she grew up and her family still lives.
Although she was vacationing in a nation being strafed by violence and murders, with more than 29,000 people killed in 2017, the capital of Mexico City is statistically safer than her hometown of Chicago.
