Further Proof the Math Does Not add up: From Zeta July 13, 2020
Murders in Baja California do not stop, violent deaths are concentrated in Tijuana at 72%, followed by Ensenada. Fights between cartels continue to be the main cause of death. For the president of EduPaz “there is a reality of violence out of control for a long time”; while the leader of the Citizen Council of Public Security in the State, urged the authority to capture criminals who generate violence, since in the matter of drug dealing “nothing is being done”.
In Baja California, the month of July started bloody.
In the first nine days, 63 homicides are counted, 48 of these perpetrated in Tijuana, increasing the 2020 violent death statistic to 1,450 victims.
In the middle of a pandemic derived from the SARS-CoV-2 virus, executions spilled over into the months of March, April and May, with 246, 256 and 268 homicides, respectively.
According to the National Information Center of the Executive Secretariat of the National Public Security System, and corresponding to the investigation folders of the common jurisdiction initiated and reported by the State Attorney General’s Office (FGE) from January 1 to May 31, 2020 , Ensenada registers a 65.45% increase in intentional homicides, Tecate 19.26% and Mexicali 10.70%. Rosarito and Tijuana beaches registered a decrease of 1.40% and 0.07%, respectively.
Femicide presented an increase in Ensenada of 97.43%, in absolute numbers two research folders were registered against one from the previous year. In Playas de Rosarito it increased 10.30% and in Tijuana 0.97%
Although the government of Jaime Bonilla Valdez justifies that homicides have decreased in the first six months of the year, the difference is not significant, not even because from March to date there is less mobility in the municipalities.
