Cops capped

The Cd. Juárez drug wars continue, bloodily. And of course the everyday rate of homicide is sky high in the border town. From the World's Worst Newspaper:
Two Juárez police officers were shot to death inside a car Tuesday morning, making it 10 homicides in the first five days of February, Juárez police said.
Tuesday's killings were at least the 53rd and 54th homicides of the year in what appears to be an increasingly violent drug war in Juárez. Last month, two police officials lost their lives in street ambushes, and one is still recovering at Thomason Hospital in El Paso from an attempt on his life.

Read it all here.

The guy in the American hospital is under heavy guard. He was a Wazoo police commander with -- get this -- dual citizenship. He was brought to the Thomason facility because of the hospital's good trauma department.
