Just another neighborhood that has no crime, no confrontation, no vice, I'm sure. TJ at its best.

To specify the location of the event, it wasn't technically "outside" of the Hong Kong Club. It was in a parking lot that is not affiliated with the club other than it's within a block of the joint and is often used by patrons of the place. And Visduh, I can yank plenty of similar stories in a 24-hour period in San Diego, so I'm failing to see your point about this not happening within a 20-mile radius of ANYWHERE in San Diego. Crime is not Tijuana specific (nor are shootouts or strip joints or much else for that matter).

Shootiouts are way more common in high crime areas of San Diegi because private citizens are prohibited from owning guns or ammunition. In TJ only law enforcement and criminals own guns. Although, in Mexico they don't identify each other by color. Blue for police, or is it blue for crip and red for blood?
