Former Boy Scouts killed in border drug war

There’s so many gruesome and tragic stories about violence along the U.S.-Mexico border related to the drug war lately that it’s hard not to become desensitized.

However, this story from the El Paso Times about a young U.S. citizen and his friend being gunned down in Juarez, Mexico regardless of their apparent clean living, is a reminder of how bad it is.

Family members, who held his funeral Tuesday, said they did not know the reason behind the attack.  News reports said the two men were coming from a boy scout camp before they were gunned down.
