    Gun violence is now the leading killer of America's children, surpassing accidents, disease and even drug overdose, a new report finds. Researchers at the University of Michigan, in Ann Arbor, write that over 4,300 children aged one to 19 years old died of a firearm related injury during the pandemic's first year - a 30 percent jump from the previous year. 2020 was the first year that gun violence overtook vehicle crashes as a leading killer - both due to a surge in firearm deaths and a rapid fall in vehicle related deaths over the past two decades. The report is yet another indicator of America's growing gun violence issues, and the large scale uptick of crime that has struck the nation since the pandemic began in early 2020.

    Amsterdam's cannabis coffee shops are set to ban tourists in a 'necessary intervention' to get a grip on the local soft drugs market.  Mayor of Amsterdam Femke Halsema has said she wants to press on with plans to temporarily shut up shop on the city's cannabis cafe's to tourists as there is a 'worrying interdependence' between the soft and hard drug trade. 'Money from the lucrative cannabis trade easily finds its way into hard drugs,' she said. 'Many of the major problems in the city are fueled by the cannabis market. From nuisance cause by drug tourism to serious crime and violence.  'Banning sales to tourists is a necessary intervention and a first step towards regulation.' Cannabis coffee shops have been a famous tourist attraction in the Dutch capital, which welcomes approximately 20million tourists every year, since they have become available for recreational use in cafes since 1976. The class B drug is currently available in coffee shops in Singel, Amsterdam, where the red-light district is located and prostitution is also allowed.

    DENVER (CBS4) — On Thursday, Gov. Jared Polis joined Colorado lawmakers and community members to discuss proposals to reduce drug use, violence and crime at Denver’s Union Station. (credit: CBS) “The facility has become a site for illegal activities including the sale and use of deadly, illegal drugs, and the violence and criminal behavior this activity invites. The situation is increasingly unsafe for customers, employees, businesses and neighbors,” officials stated. “…arrests alone will not result in a sustainable solution for enhancing security at the Union Station terminal and campus and throughout downtown,” officials stated. Police hope to deter unwanted activities by upgrading lighting, installing smoke detectors in restrooms, covering or deactivating electrical outlets in walkway areas, adding security cameras and converting commuter rail platform stairs  to exit only. “In the longer term, one of the more impactful changes will be the implementation of a paid fare area. The paid fare area will ensure that only those individuals in possession of appropriate fare will have access to the bus concourse,” officials stated. “Turnstiles, exit gates, or other barriers must be installed...
    (CNN)The southern French port city of Marseille has made headlines in recent months over the deaths of several young people in drug-related shootouts, in what is often referred to as a "settling of scores."A spate of killings this summer, including that of a 14-year-old boy named Rayanne in mid-August, prompted two visits from President Emmanuel Macron in September and October and a promise of billions of euros to tackle the problem. Ahead of the French presidential election early next year, Marseille looks set to become a battleground for candidates to show their commitment to addressing socioeconomic problems, with several pledges made by various parties amid much fanfare. Poverty, racism and isolation are deeply rooted in the poorer areas of Marseille, where residents say a lack of opportunity and state neglect leads to some young people becoming involved in trafficking drugs such as cannabis, cocaine and ecstasy.

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden was joined by his wife Dr. Jill Biden to cast their votes during early voting in Wilmington, DE on Wednesday, and spoke to reporters afterwards about the unrest in Philadelphia following a police shooting and his health care plan. “Well, we just voted, and Jill’s off to do an interview,” said Biden as several supporters who had gathered nearby shouted “We love you!” Biden thanked the gathered reporters for covering the race and took questions, with one about the situation in Philadelphia first. “There is no excuse whatsoever for the looting and the violence,” said Biden. “None whatsoever. I think to be able to protest is totally legitimate. It’s totally reasonable.” Continued Biden: But I think that the looting is just as the victim’s father said, “Do not do this, it’s not what my son — you’re not helping. You’re hurting. You’re not helping my son.” And there are certain things we’re going to have to do as we move along, and I think I know the local folks in Philadelphia...

    CHICAGO (CBS) — Chicago’s top cop said more than 1,000 extra officers will patrol the city’s streets and neighborhoods in order to stave off crime this holiday weekend. Chicago police Superintendent David Brown said they’ll be sent to tourist areas and what he called “hot spots” in the area. “Each day on the Fourth of July weekend, those officers will be deployed around our hotspots well we’ve had obviously recent violence on the last two weekends, but also historical violence based on last Fourth of July,” Brown said, adding it includes the area including the lakeshore and Michigan Avenue. Brown said CPD will use cameras and other high tech devices to track activity but also deploying selectively. “We’ve taken a strong stance on the long swaths of geography that have had recent violence, focusing on not just gained guns and drugs, but the criminal networks that I’ve been driving violence these last two weekends,” Brown said. “That’s a different feature. The way we drill down to the beat level and have those beats with dedicated officers who will be there throughout...
    CHICAGO (CBS) — In decrying the gun violence that has left several children dead and wounded in the last two weeks, Chicago Police Supt. David Brown said open-air drug markets were partially to blame. Brown urged people to come forward with information to help police catch the “evil, murdering bastards” responsible for the murders of 1-year-old Sincere Gaston in Englewood and 10-year-old Lena Nunez in Logan Square.

    Mexico City’s police chief is lucky to be alive after a dramatic assassination attempt that left him wounded, two of his bodyguards dead, and his police vehicle riddled with bullets. Reuters reports that the chief survived at least three bullet wounds and blamed the Jalisco New Generation Cartel  (CJNG) drug cartel for the “cowardly attack”  in one of Mexico City’s wealthiest neighborhoods in a Tweet from his hospital bed. “We were attacked in a cowardly way by the CJNG,” the police chief said. “Our nation has to continue standing up to cowardly organized crime.” Photos of the police chief’s vehicle, nearly unrecognizable from damage, appeared on social media. Local police say the attack killed at least one person in addition to the chief’s bodyguards — a 26-year-old woman who happened to be caught in the barrage of .50-caliber bullets. “The shooting, which occurred in the prestigious neighborhood of Lomas de Chapultepec, was captured on security cameras at the scene,” German news outlet DW reported Saturday. “A dozen of the 28 gunmen reportedly involved in the attack were held for questioning...
    MEXICO CITY/ACAPULCO, Mexico (Reuters) – The coronavirus is threatening to hamstring Mexico’s fight against some of its most vicious drug gangs, as police and officials fall sick, security forces are diverted to guard medical centers and military barracks are converted to COVID-19 clinics. FILE PHOTO: A woman is comforted by a friend after a relative was gunned down by unknown assailants outside a garage, in Mexico City, Mexico February 12, 2020. Picture taken February 12, 2020. REUTERS/Luis Cortes The powerful Jalisco cartel and its rivals are exploiting a security void to step up the fight for control of the drug trade in Mexico, security officials and analysts say. The number of murders nationally has risen to record levels even as the amount of other crimes have tumbled due to most of the country staying at home to avoid the coronavirus. In recent weeks, gunmen abducted and killed seven police officers, murdered 10 people in a drug rehab center and dumped 12 bullet-riddled bodies of a rival crime outfit, all in areas where the Jalisco New Generation (CJNG)...
