2008 WAS A RECORD YEAR FOR VIOLENCE IN TIJUANA

There were 843 murders inĀ Tijuana, Mexico last year. It was the most violent year on record for the city that borders San Diego. Drug violence has gotten so out of control that Marines from nearby Camp Pendleton in California have been banned from traveling to T.J.

The ban was originally issued for the Christmas holiday but is now indefinite. With cheap prices, an 18-year-old drinking age, and $10 prostitutes, Tijuana has long been a popular R&R destination for U.S. military personnel.
