Congratulations Phoenix, Arizona! You have become the kidnap capital of the the United States of America. I'm sure it has nothing to do with your sanctuary policies for illegal aliens and the drug cartels that roam free in your streets. As the video points out below, this is something you expect to see in Iraq or Latin America or Mexico, but nope, you're seeing this in Phoenix, Arizona....

I am in Tucson. Phoenix is just up the road a bit. I have been aware of the problem for awhile (years), but can't say when it escalated to present day levels.
We do not have the reported problem of Phoenix. It certainly occurs with slayings, presumably, gang related, but no reported kidnappings, as such.
What has been reported, as well, is an increasing number of home invasions, military-style in the Phoenix area, which has been attributed to the Mexican drug cartels.
And these guys do not play well with others.
