SAN DIEGO-In Baja Calif., weekends are a different kind of blast. On Saturday, Nov. 15, masked gunmen burst into a Tijuana pool hall and opened fire with shotguns, killing five people. On the same day, two men and a 14-year-old girl died in a shootout in a Tijuana street. The murders occurred shortly after at least 1,000 people, protesting the region's spiraling drug-related violence, marched through the city's streets carrying signs that said "Dios nos ahorra."
God save us.
