The author reflects on the thoughts of a retired lawman on the crime situation in Tucson, Arizona. He presents several indicators cited by the lawman on the crime situation of the region which includes the increasing number of homicides and the fight between drug cartels and government leaders in Mexico. He hopes that the forecast of the lawman that crime is going to get a lot worse before it gets better is wrong.
