Hola
Came home early around 1030. Taxi driver,cab 360, tried to charge us 60 pesos for the ride. Finished dealing with the driver and some young punk rips my wife's fanny pack off of her arm. Good thing she is strong. He went away empty handed. She ended up with her pack, a broken strap on her pack and a bloody arm.

What would lead you to believe she was from Mexico City and not a local low life.

This is a lawless State. You are on your own and responsible for your own personal security.
Willie Sutton was asked why he robbed banks. He said, "Because that's where the money is. " Tourists and Gringo's are desireable prey on the financial food-chain. Act accordingly.

Excerpt from Chiboy post:

"This is a lawless State. You are on your own and responsible for your own personal security."

That's the bottom line here in Z.
If one needs a supposed police official, I wouldn't even bother as they have proven to be totally useless, IF one could even locate one.
People do whatever they want, wherever they want, and whenever they want, all crimes are free, no penalties, no consequences.
All know this, and it is a "círculo visióso " that endlessly perpetuates delinquency.

That said, the jails & prisons are occupied, so it's not a totally lawless State.
I'd give it about a 98% "lawless" score, e.g., referring to the application & ENFORCEMENT aspect.

At any rate, most visitors come and go to Z, & enjoy their holidays without any incidents.
Nevertheless, personally, I feel unsafe here in Z. :vivamexico:

Sorry to hear someone tried to rob you. Police presence was woefully inadequate though we did see Estatales walk by right after all the fireworks. Though they apparently didn't seem to care that folks had parked blocking Juan N. Álvarez street.

The taxis always raise their rates for Xmas and NYE. It is normal. Not worth haggling over, IMHO.

¡Feliz Año!
