Rosarito Beach Mexico: Mexican authorities say they are investigating a shooting of a U.S. Marine early yesterday morning in which Mexican marines shot and wounded Pfc. Joshua Kendall Monnet who they say was driving a vehicle near a checkpoint.
Mexican military authorities based in Ensenada Baja said the marines at the checkpoint indicated to Monnet that he should stop his vehicle. They said the Mexican marines opened fire shortly thereafter. Most of the details that led to the shooting are being with hold by Mexican authorities. Calls to the Mexican Marines and other Ensenada civilian authorities shed very little light on what actually happened.
U.S. Marine authorities at Camp Pendleton California said the information was new to them; however they would be looking into the matter and check whether the shooting involved a Camp Pendleton Marine.
Gangland style executions of four people are believed Americans who were shot and killed near the main highway between Tijuana and Rosarito Beach. First reported by local police who were the first on the crime scene told the Laguna Journal by phone that five victims were executed, four of them appear to be Americans three men and a women. Police say," we are withholding the names of the victims until relatives in the states can be notified".
La Mesa woman Libby Gianna Craig believed to be an American was among four people found shot to death in a canyon near Rosarito Beach in Baja California, official’s said.
The 28-year-old was in an area known as Morro Canyon along with three Afro-American males; Mexican police described three of the dead men as "Black Americans". Early reports also said more bodies were found in a separate location at different points of Playas de Rosarito, reported some Mexican papers.
Shortly after the Baja Attorney General de Justicia del Estado took over the investigation the official word changed and the press was told of only four people killed three Mexican nationals and one female of Mexican decent and denied that the male victims were Americans. This was a complete reversal from the on the crime scene investigating police officers who reported the three men were Afro-Americans and the names were being with hold pending notification of the next of kin in the states. A high ranking Mexican army officer has told the Laguna Journal that he and others have received word to not talk with or report any American deaths to the media.

Many Mexico business owners and the Mexican Chamber Of Commerce have been complaining that the American media has been reporting that Americans have been executed, kidnapped for ransom and victims of other crimes while in Mexico. Juan Ortiz a Tijuana business owner told the Journal that business is down some 50% since those recent news reports. “I don’t believe those reports all it is doing is scaring people and keeping them from coming to Mexico”. Mr. Ortiz said.
Reuters reported at 9:52 a.m. May 19,2008 dateline ROSARITO, Mexico reported four people believed to be Americans were shot in the head and dumped in a notorious drug-smuggling area in northern Mexico near the border with California, Mexican police said Monday.

All the shootings were apparently deliberate, targeted, not just random bystanders caught up in the wave of violence that has engulfed U.S. Mexican border cities, Mexican authorities said.
Details are sketchy but the first murder occurred after two PM in the colony in the ejido Mina Primo Tapia's Fifth Municipality, where a late model vehicle was found abandoned with California plates. Inside the vehicle police discovered the body of an executed male subject, reported a spokesperson of the Rosarito police. Click on or Google: More Americans shot in Mexico

According to a Mexican policemen at the scene said, "The discovery occurred at kilometer four of the boulevard, under the bridge known as El Morro, where they located a 2nd vehicle a green Cadillac with white California, USA plates." The officer went on to say in broken English "At 20 meters' from the car, we found dead another man of dark complexion and a white woman, who apparently are also foreigners". Those bodies have not been identified.

Last week four Americans were shot and wounded as they were leaving the Arriba Chihuahua nightclub in the ProNaF tourist zone in the violent Mexican border city of Juárez.
Some 200 people have been killed in Tijuana so far this year. In 2007, there were more than 2,500 drug killings across Mexico and just since the beginning of this year more than 3500 people have been murdered in Mexico in what authorities blame on the Mexican cartels and their criminal gangs and Para-military forces.

It is estimated that Mexico has 36,000 troops fighting the Mexican drug cartels and their Para-military units throughout the country. With the expected injection of more soldiers being sent to the U.S. Mexican border cities those troops will number near 40,000.

In recent months and after Mexican president Caldron dispatched the Mexican army and federal police to many interior cities and to Mexican cities on the Mexican U.S. border the level of violence has risen substantially.
As reported earlier this month in the Laguna/El Paso Journal many Americans are wondering when the Bush administration is going to raise the travel alert to its highest level "travel warning," to forewarn American travelers to Mexico? How many American citizens are going to have to be shot, executed or kidnapped before the American government move to prevent needless deaths and issue the proper high alert of "travel warning," for Americans?
