In just the last two years over 6,800 people have been killed. 24 journalists have been murdered and 7 have vanished. This isn’t Iraq, but Mexico’s war on drugs - and the scale and severity of the violence is escalating. Vicente Calderon is a longtime Tijuana journalist and Amy Isackson is a longtime San Diego reporter, they’re collaborating on an ongoing series that seeks to bring home the war happening in our backyard.
