"Blackout victims at Mexico resorts have little hope of justice"

"Heidi Sorrem and her husband, Corey, talk about their trip from their Greenfield, Wis., home to a Mexico resort in Sept. 2016 to celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary. After a couple of shots they both blacked out and Heidi ended up in a hospital. Mike De Sisti/Milwaukee Journal Sentinel"

"The young woman behind the desk at the police station in Playa del Carmen toggled between her cellphone and computer, Snapchatting with friends and scrolling through Facebook, as she asked the young man from Boston whether he had ever enjoyed sex.

"How that was relevant, he didn’t know. He was at the police department in the small Mexican city south of Cancun to report that he had just been drugged and raped while receiving a massage at a world-renowned resort and spa.

"The young man was told that the woman — Claudia, as he recalls — was a psychologist. They sat in a windowless room and after a while she handed him some paper and told him to draw some pictures. No stick figures. As detailed as possible. 

"A tree. A man. A woman. A person trapped in the rain without an umbrella.

"Now draw your family, she said. The 29-year-old man broke down. All he wanted to do was to get home, see his family. The senseless questions and exercises were too much.

Raquel Rutledge gives us an update on her investigation on tainted alcohol at Mexican resorts and the news that Senator Ron Johnson has called for an investigation into the death of a Pewaukee woman.

"He drew the picture.

"Three months later, there’s no sign of justice; no indication Mexican police pursued the case. The man is back home, struggling through the emotional aftermath. 

"The despair and frustration he’s facing are familiar to dozens of vacationers who have been victimized at upscale, all-inclusive Mexican resorts."

Let's start doing something about other countries that constantly provoke us.  How about we stop all trade with Mexico until they clean up this resort/booze scam?  Oh wait, how about they stop their people from stealing into our country, too?  What the fuck?  It seems to me that Mexico hates our guts but wants our money.  Fuck them.  Act like human beings first.

Have the National Guard heavily patrol our border with Mexico. Shoot to kill.
