Bloody Father's Day Leaves 12 Dead as the Beat Goes On

Last night at sunset a man was walking with his wife, who was pushing a stroller with a baby in it, and two small daughters, in Col. La Cuesta. Suddendly two men who had been walking in front of them turned around and shot the man in the head. Blood spattered onto his family as he fell, dying. Happy Father's Day.

At about 5:30 p.m. in Col. Nuevo Hipódromo, a man who had converted his home into a hamburger stand was shot and killed when gunmen entered the home and shot him, leaving his body on the floor. About 15 minutes later, in Col. Los Alamos, a man who sold Clamato juice in front of his home was killed as he tried to escape from his house after he heard gunfire when a group of armed men began shooting at his Chevrolet Blazer and into the windows of his home. He was killed in a hail of gunfire.

A man on a motor scooter driving along Juárez-Porvenir highway near San Isidro was shot and killed when gunmen spotted him, chased him down, and shot him.

Is there anything the State of New Mexico can do to help stop the killings in MX?
