Buzz Mixes It Up with “Murder City’s” Charles Bowden, “Murder Capital’s” Charlie Minn on Juarez [AUDIO/VIDEO]
What a great interview! The Q Morning Show welcomed author Charles Bowden and director Charlie Minn to talk about Juarez. Things are quieter south of our border lately, but the nights of heading to Juarez for weekend fun are looooong gone. It’ll be years before Cd. Juarez ever loses it’s reputation as the most dangerous city in North America — because it still is.
Minn premieres his new film, “Murder Capital of the World” at Premiere Cinemas at Bassett Place and Cineport 10 in Las Cruces. Bowden, the author of “Murder City”, has documented Juarez’s downward spiral for many years.
As you’ll hear, things got a little heated between Buzz and Bowden. Bowden holds the largely American-owned maquila industry partly responsible for Juarez’s problems while Buzz couldn’t disagree more, though both agree on a solution — legalize drugs.
