Want to know what California will look like in 20 years? Google Tijuana.

It has one of the highest murder rates in the Western Hemisphere. Google street view shows a dense urban landscape where residents live in total fear of their neighbors. The entire city is covered in massive concrete walls, steel gates, and steel bars. Combine that with the gang graffiti and crumbling roads and it looks like some post apocalyptic landscape. It is so dangerous that the United States Marine Corps recently ended a decades old tradition of letting soldiers take leave in the city.
