It is truly tragic what has happened (and continues to happen) to so many innocent people as revealed in your coverage of reporters in Mexico. That being said, it's almost more tragic that so much of the drug war violence is so easily preventable. Stop the drug war. Legalize and regulate drugs. The cost to society because of legalized drugs would be a fraction of that being paid to continue the drug war, both monetarily and in human lives. And yet the most rational and practical answer isn't even a remote consideration. Yes, tragic.
