I smell a new X Games event. Fleeing Mex Feds.
I'd much rather go to Mex then Logan Heights.

Hell, might as well stay out of Arizona too. The sheriff's here don't offer you California boys double tall skinny vanilla lattes when they show up...

I am contacting some people I know and see what is going to be done about this issue. I meet once a week with politicians to discuss the tourist situation and crap like this that happens.
My boat is a Mexican registered vessel and they still check our papers and make sure the passengers have their fishing permits. However there has never been a problem. I however am a Gringo and a part time resident and yes, I do see a double standard at times. My papers have to be perfect at all times or the charter stays at the dock.
I tell people repeatedly every day. I have been crossing the border twice a week for 10 years and have never seen anything happen. Ensenada is so quiet; you can hear the wind blow. Americans only hear one side of the story and the Baja Gov. needs to spend a few bucks on radio and TV adds in the US. People believe what they hear and if it is only the negative then things get blown out of proportion. I talk to people every day that really believe that as soon as you cross the border you will see bullets flying like a war zone. Some even say “we need to send the US troops to the border”. I see just the opposite and I’m there 3 days a week. Just visualize watching TV and seeing a guy hooking up an albacore, tuna, yellowtail or Dorado and showing people drinking margaritas and eating lobster. I’m guessing you would remember good times of the past and start thinking about going back. That is what Mexico needs to do. Believe me, I am working on it.
Caldron will be gone in a year and I hope to hell they realize that if the US is spending 40 billion a year fighting a war on drugs with almost zero results, Mexico has no chance. As long as there is a market, someone will find a way to supply it. It’s no different the days or Al Capone and the booz being smuggled from Canada to the US by JFK’s freaking dad.www.ensenada.com

"I went to Mexico for free fish porn in another country, got fucked and now my pussy hurts. My $100,000 boat got a boo-boo and now I'm looking for sympathy on BD the biggest toolbox on the interwebs."
Good luck with that .
"In other News an American Tourist realizes he is not in Kansas anymore and 17yo Mexican Marines who are getting shot dead daily are not sympathetic to the trials and tribulations of being a rich entitled American. Update at 11. Don't touch that dial!"
So easy a 5yo can do it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3w7jCUqSPeQ

On further looking at the damage, I'm thinking he did that docking and any interior damage was from an underage hooker he didn't want to pay...made all this shit up and is looking for insurance $'s and hiding from wifey.....
There's as much validity to that story as what I read in the "news" article. No dates, no place, no witness's... just take my word, would I lie to you ???.....
We all know that fishing in Baja leaves open the chance to get boarded... but fishing in SD bay you are pretty sure your going to get boarded.
How many of us have had damage from the DFG,Harbour Police,Homeland Security boats when they fly up to ya ??
Don't see those on the 11 O'Clock news... and trust me, those guys have they're hands on their guns also.

Mexico is fighting the war because the US won't give Mexico aid money unless they do.
The US provides the demand and the guns, yet screams bloody murder about how incompetent the Mexican government is in prosecuting their war.
Here in California we found ourselves in the curious position of the Prison Guard's Union, Statewide Police Agencies and all of the drug cartels all being on the same side of the de-criminalization of marijuana referendum last Novembver. Wake up, folks. Everybody who is making money at it wants to maintain the status quo. Especially when it is so easy to blame Mexico.
Gee, the Netherlands doesn't have the problem of drug cartels killing thousands of innocent folks. 1) They're Dutch, and the thought would never enter their heads; and 2) Reasonable Legalization.

I must agree.
I herd the US gave Mexico 800 million to support the war on drugs.
What I'm affraid of is: Who ever gets elected as the new mexican president will not be able to say no to the money and continue the war just to skim a little for himself.www.ensenada.com

When I read "rammed", I expected to see a
bow shaped divot half way through the boat.
Not scuffed aluminum trim.
Funny, the dude seemed genuinely confused
that Mexican military men would be wearing uniforms
and have weapons.
His first day on the planet?
And, how the hell did the floor in the head get cracked?
Once again... story don't add up.
I have never been a guest on a boat that was boarded in Mexico.
Have been in U.S. waters. DFG and Harbor Patrol.
You stand still with your hands out of your pockets
and let the key players talk.
It really is that simple.
A little ignorance is better than a shit load of stupid.
