    Violence erupts on the streets of Ciudad Juarez

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     ampena told me, 'I have been researching this story for a semester or so, and I have been here in Juarez for a week now.'
    - hhanks, CNN iReport producer

    Violence is very much a part of everyday life in Ciudad Juarez.  In 2009, there has been over 2,400 drug related killings already, thats an average of 8-10 a day.  While I was here, one day they killed 16, another 13 and after a top Cartel leader was killed, the death rate rose to 20 that day which included a injured police officer.  No word on whether he has survived or not.
