...San Francisco Woman Killed by Stray Bullet While Celebrating Wedding Anniversary in†Mexico
KTLA ^ | July 10, 2018

Posted on 07/11/2018 5:59:20 AM PDT by BenLurkin

Tatiana Mirutenko and her husband, James Hoover, were at a taqueria on Saturday with two friends in the exclusive Lomas de Chapultepec neighborhood of the capital when the gunmen opened fire on a bouncer inside the establishment, according to a statement from the Mexico City attorney general's office.

...

Hoover and Mirutenko were celebrating their one-year wedding anniversary with three other couples and were trying to dine at as many Michelin-star restaurants as possible, reported CNN affiliate WLS in Chicago, where the woman's family lives.

Mirutenko, a Hawthorn Woods, Illinois, native, attended Clemson University, where she played Division I volleyball, and she worked for a San Francisco-based biopharmaceutical company.

Clemson economics professor Raymond Sauer said he doesn't remember many students from five years ago, but Mirutenko is an exception. She was "especially intelligent," worked hard and was often engaging others, he said. She was a staple in the economics department and was never afraid to ask questions or discuss course work.

"She was charting a course for her life, and really always thinking about the future and working really hard. ... You knew she would go places. This is why this death is so ironic -- a person like that would get caught up in something so random."

Her employer said she brought many of those same character traits to work.

People who go to Mexico are stupid. Even the Mexicans don’t want to be in Mexico.

Mebbe our lefties can go south of the border down Mehico way and campaign for “common sense gun control.” Oops! I mean “gun violence reduction measures.”

Is this like the story pitcher Don Sutton told about going to a rough bar in the Florida panhandle. He said they patted down every customer to see if he was armed - and if he wasn’t, they gave him a gun.

“People who go to Mexico are stupid. Even the Mexicans don’t want to be in Mexico.”

I was in San Diego visiting friends close to 40 years ago, and wanted to go 20 miles to Tijuana, just to go to Mexico.

They said, “Don’t go. It’s dirty and unsafe, and only underage Americans go there to drink.”

I heeded their advice.

Whatever happened to the two becoming one in marriage? Apparently one name is a whole 'nother thing for some people. I must be old fashioned.

The Lord God said, 'It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him'...and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man's ribs and closed up the place with flesh. Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man. The man said, 'This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called 'woman,' for she was taken out of man.' For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh. Genesis 2:18, 21-24, NIV)

I was floored when the media actually reported this. Proof that Mexico, with 25,000 murders, is a sh*thole and frankly we need to only allow in their best and brightest.

Right...just the place you want to take your wife out night clubbing for your anniversary.

Interesting.

The area described is truly residential - Lomas de Chapultepec — with the Paseo de la Reforma running through it. (kinda pretty esplanade sort of roadway).

To my recollection, there are no restaurants *IN* Lomas de Chapultepec, but several on the southwest edge, across Prado Sur.

I travel to MEX for bidness, always with a driver, and ONLY go to restaurants with my bidness amigos. And nothing good happens after midnight there either.

Fairly serious US State Dept. travel advisory since March 2018:

Exercise increased caution in Mexico due to crime. Some areas have increased risk. Read the entire Travel Advisory.

Violent crime, such as homicide, kidnapping, carjacking, and robbery, is widespread.

The U.S. government has limited ability to provide emergency services to U.S. citizens in many areas of Mexico as U.S. government employees are prohibited from travel to these areas.

U.S. government employees are prohibited from intercity travel after dark in many areas of Mexico. U.S. government employees are also not permitted to drive from the U.S.-Mexico border to or from the interior parts of Mexico with the exception of daytime travel on Highway 15 between Nogales and Hermosillo.

Read the Safety and Security section on the country information page.

Do not travel to:

Colima state due to crime.
Guerrero state due to crime.
Michoacán state due to crime.
Sinaloa state due to crime.
Tamaulipas state due to crime.
For all other states in Mexico, please see detailed information below.

If you decide to travel to Mexico:

Use toll roads when possible and avoid driving at night.
Exercise increased caution

etc.

“People who go to Mexico are stupid. Even the Mexicans don’t want to be in Mexico.”

Rule of thumb: don’t visit a country where tens of thousands of people are trying escape from. I smell liberals..they live in, work there and apparently tolerate San Fagcisco.

Even Cancun and Cozumel now have tourist warnings, that's like warning people to stay way from Cape Cod - ridiculous and unacceptable for a civil society with laws and law enforcement.

"... trying to dine at as many Michelin-star restaurants as possible"

All cultural-appropriation hysteria aside, I LOVE tacos and have loved them since I had my first one in the mid-1960s.

But I gotta admit to being surprised that they hand out Michelin stars to a taquería...

South of the border
Down Mexico way
Michelin starred restaurant?
Is that like gourmet Mexican food?
Rice and beans and beans and rice. No way to dress up poverty food.
I wonder if that overpriced crappy food was worth the life of his wife?
