No, no, not those numeros. I’m talking about the official numeros de secuestros and home invasion rip-offs in Phoenix. The statistics seem to have turned into a hen-pecking party with allegations against the recently demoted former chief, Jack Harris for $2.4 million in federal funding.

Here’s the latest: an independent panel has been reviewing the police department’s statistics and found that of 358 reported kidnappings in 2008, only 222 met the criteria for kidnapping and 136 did not. My Fronteras Desk colleague does a nice job of summarizing the breakdown of the numbers.

There are still 376 home invasion reports to tally up from that year. If they’re found to include cases of illegal immigrants held against their will by bajadores, the number of kidnappings in the city could actually skyrocket well past the alleged 358.

Keep your eye on it, it’s going to be a fascinating case-study in the realities of border politicking. (Pictures out of a Phoenix kidnapping report).

These are some cellphone self-portraits taken by a Phoenix rip-off crew, February 2009. According to the initial police reports, an anonymous caller had told a dispatcher that he had escaped the house when the bajadores came in but that there were others being held. By the time police arrived, everyone was gone. Maybe it didn’t happen …

  5. “In the first six months of 2010, the latest State Department figures available, 49 Americans were victims of homicide in Mexico, up from 37 for the same period in 2009 and 19 in the first half of 2008.”


  6. This has been something that has slowly been starting in the El Paso area too

  7. Howdy! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog post or vice-versa?
    My blog addresses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other.
    If you are interested feel free to send me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you!
    Great blog by the way!

  8. The graphics on other mobile devices are as great
    as the i – Phone. Now let’s not forget the most important period –
    lunchtime. How about a phrase from a song that you’d like to have as a

  9. I do agree with all of the concepts you have introduced to your
    post. They’re really convincing and will definitely work.

    Nonetheless, the posts are too short for starters. May just you
    please prolong them a little from subsequent time? Thanks for the post.

  10. Hi! Do you use Twitter? I’d like to follow you if
    that would be ok. I’m absolutely enjoying your blog and look forward to new updates.

  11. Everyone loves what you guys are usually
    up too. Such clever work and coverage! Keep up the very good
    works guys I’ve incorporated you guys to my personal blogroll.

  12. Everything is very open with a very clear explanation of the issues.
    It was truly informative. Your website is extremely helpful.
    Many thanks for sharing!

  13. I’m really enjoying the theme/design of your weblog. Do you ever run into
    any web browser compatibility problems? A couple of my
    blog visitors have complained about my site not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Firefox.
    Do you have any advice to help fix this issue?

  14. I visit every day a few websites and websites to
    read content, however this website offers feature based posts.

  15. Hey would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and
    Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m
    looking for something unique. P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had
    to ask!

  16. I’m not sure exactly why but this website is loading extremely
    slow for me. Is anyone else having this problem or is it a issue on my
    end? I’ll check back later and see if the problem still exists.

  17. Flying high in popularity today too is the free app, ‘Flappy Bird’.
    However, in order to Play Angry Birds Online; the smart phone is
    to be held sideways which makes the movement and the maneuver much simpler since the phone functions as a joystick in a game.
    properly, you will have to ask the ten million people who have downloaded the game, four
    million of those people paid 99 cents for it.

  18. Excellent method of explaining, and pleasant paragraph to obtain facts on the topic of my presentation topic, which i will deliver in academy.

  19. If anything on the board is still moving and you take your next shot, in most
    cases you’ve just shot yourself in the foot. My favorite
    feature about the Weather Bug app is the temperature display in the notification bar which gives you the current
    conditions and can also notify you of severe weather. Now cut a felt paper
    to match the shape of the face of your Angry Bird.

  20. Excellent post however I was wondering if you could write a litte more on this
    topic? I’d be very thankful if you could elaborate a little bit further.
    Bless you!

  21. wonderful issues altogether, you simply won a new reader. What might you suggest in regards
    to your submit that you made some days in the past?
    Any sure?

  22. Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the pictures aren’t loading correctly.
    I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different internet browsers
    and both show the same results.

  23. Pharmaceutical companies warn men not to take Viagra without
    a prescription from a doctor because of the many risks, especially for
    men taking nitroglycerin, which is a heart drug
    that lowers high blood pressure. At this early stage of the research, it appears that using Viagra
    is increasing the levels of the oxytocin hormone in the user.
    More often men are embarrassed or reluctant to look for help in solving this problem.

  24. Greetings! I’ve been reading your website for a long time now and finally got
    the bravery to go ahead and give you a shout out from
    New Caney Tx! Just wanted to mention keep up the good job!
