CNN is offering what it believes is compelling evidence for why the United States of America is irredeemable.
Their “evidence” is purely anecdotal, from an American who migrated to Mexico and claimed our neighbors to the south have a more civilized police force.
I mean, who doesn’t think of Mexico when they think of police integrity. Oh, wait…
Mexico is just heaven on earth, you guys.
“I walk by police with guns in Puerto Vallarta, they smile and wave. No fear.”
That’s fine and all but how is one person’s experience held up like this? Will CNN feature an article about someone who moved to China to seek democracy next? https://t.co/I2CnTa6cWN

Vallarta is a resort town, but it’s also a terminus that isn’t on the way to anywhere. As such, it has escaped much of the drug trade that plagues the states on the roads to the US.

Right? Puerto Vallarta isn’t exactly Tijuana.
Ah, well. CNN’s got a narrative to push.
