    This article sounds brutal. It talks about the rise in lynching in Latin America. It mentions the lynching of hundreds of people per year by angry mobs, including lynching a Canadian tourist. The article says Latin America accounts for a third of the world’s murders—about 400 a day, with almost half of them in Brazil.

    Want to read the article? Here's how:
    Click the link and open the article in a new tab
    Copy the article title
    Close the tab
    Open a new "private browsing tab" (at least that's what it's called using Firefox), hopefully you get the idea if using another browser
    In the private browsing session, google the article title (you just copied it above, just paste the title into the google search box and click search)
    Click the result (at or near top) that obviously contains the article you want to read
    Walla


    The article is good description of an incredibly unfortunate reality.

    I couldn't open the article on this ipad but would chime in that tourists are not targets of violent crime for the most part. I know many people that travel to Latin America, which includes Mexico, that have nothing but good experiences on their visits for the most part.

    Today we are about a mile away from the place El Chapo was enjoying before his arrest. Very nice place,imo.

    there are easy ways to read the article for free. And the article is definitely worth reading
    But newspapers need revenue to continue producing good articles so ......
    (trying to be ethical here )
    google "how to get around the WSJ paywall"
