Laredo, Tx Is A Safe City

Some dickweed went out and described our fair little city as "Most Dangerous."  Que Fregados posted her two cents on it.  Via the Tribune Weekly Chronicle:
 Laredo: Laredo is a South Texas city located on the north bank of the Rio Grande that borders Nuevo Laredo in Tamaulipas, Mexico. For many years, Laredo has been the target of cartel violence and drug trafficking for Mexican gangs, and has added ransom kidnappings, a high speed chase and a record-breaking weapons bust to the list of criminal activities happening there. In 2010, the U.S. Consulate in Nuevo Laredo was damaged from an explosive that was thrown over the wall by Mexican gang members.
The entry is unfair because no meaningful distinction is made between what happens in Laredo and Nuevo Laredo.  And no mention is made about the wide river that separates both cities.  In reality, Laredo, TX is sleepy, and safe, as it gets.  See video below.
