80% of Puerto Rico Murders Called Drug-Related
SAN JUAN â€“ About 80 percent of the murders committed in Puerto Rico are directly linked to drug trafficking, authorities and academics say.
So despite the headline, it’s not really drug-related. It’s more accurately drug-war-related, or drug-trafficking-related, but it’s easier for headline writers to say “drug-related.”
But it does make me wonder why, when there are various violent religious conflicts around the world, headline writers don’t refer to those deaths as “God-related.”
