Crime in Baja a Problem? This is not for the faint of heart!

Crime in Baja a problem? Isn't it time we put things into perspective? There is crime in all countries. I am saddened by the press and the way it is trying to destroy the good people of Baja.

 I have xxxxx out the names in the article below to protect the innocent.

 Read this article and be thankful you did not have to witness this!

 TUXTLA GUTIERREZ, Mexico — A donkey is doing time in southern Mexico for assault and battery.
The animal was locked up at a local jail that normally holds people for public drunkenness and other disturbances after it bit and kicked two men near a ranch in Chiapas state, police said Monday.
Officer Sinar Gomez said the donkey will remain behind bars until its owner agrees to pay the men's medical bills.
"Around here, if someone commits a crime they are jailed," Gomez said — "no matter who they are."
The owner, Mauro Gutierrez, told The Associated Press he would try to reach a friendly arrangement to pay the men's bills, estimated at $420.
The victims said the donkey bit xxxxxxxxxx, 63, in the chest on Sunday and then kicked 52-year-old xxxxx-xxxxxxxxxx as he tried to come to the rescue, fracturing his ankle.
"All of a sudden, the animal was on top of us like it was rabid," Hernandez said.
Police said it took a half-dozen men to control the enraged burro.
