My Photo
I am a consultant and analyst with eight years of military law enforcement experience, six years of analytical experience covering Latin America, and over seven years of analytical experience covering Mexican TCOs and border violence issues. This blog is designed to inform readers about current border violence issues and provide analysis on those issues, as well as detailed focus on specific border topics. By applying my knowledge and experience through this blog, I hope to separate the wheat from the chaff...that is, dispel rumors propagated by sensationalist media reporting, explain in layman's terms what is going on with Mexican TCOs, and most importantly, WHY violence is happening along the US-Mexico border.

You know, as a Mexican I hate how you keep a big smile while profiting off the deaths in my country, abusing sensationalism and old stereotypes. Keep smiling while showing off your book (like some kind of Stephenie Meyer) and posting on twitter, because violence in Mexico surely is as exciting and fictitious as a Western or James Bond movie. Insensitive cynic.

@Capitalino - So you're saying I'm not ever allowed to look happy or smile in public because of my work? And everyone who writes about the drug war in Mexico - or any other form of violence in the world - should do it for free because making a living from it is a bad thing? Trust me, I will get nowhere close to rich from writing this book. And yes, I'm extremely proud and happy that my work was recognized by a major publisher as worthy of putting on a bookstore shelf. Many years of hard work and experience, and thousands of hours went into putting Cartel together. And yes, I'm extremely happy that hopefully thousands of Americans will finally understand through my work that the drug war in Mexico needs more of our government's attention. Don't for one second take some photo of me out of context and think that I believe the carnage and suffering in Mexico is some sort of joke. If you believe that, then you obviously haven't read most of my work, and definitely haven't read my book. This photo in particular was taken at my book launch party, at which I celebrated the culmination of all this work with close friends and family members. It was a blast, and in the photo it shows. I'm in no way ashamed of that. There was no way I was going to look sullen and serious in every photo so that the general public might believe I'm always down in the dumps because of my work. Good day to you, sir.
