Re: Canadian man killed in Melaque Tuesday morning

I watched the local BC news about this murder and, of course, it was followed by a review of every Canadian that had been killed or injured in Mexico in the last few years. Terrible sensationalism tagged on to an, isolated, tragic event.

This Christmas, among my friends and family, there were several unfortunate crimes on Vancouver island and most will never be solved. All of them involved theft. Unfortunately, these crimes were probably committed by crack cocaine addicts and have nothing to do with the disparity between rich and poor. It has all to do with a terrible addiction.

Until counties all over the world come to grips with a problem that impacts all our lives and the security of our homes, this problem will only get worse. Jail is not is not a cure for addiction nor does it serve as a deterrent. Addiction must be considered a medical problem before we see any positive changes.
