Tourism is one of their main sources of income and it employs many citizens, I am sure they will be more vigilent in the tourist areas.

I think it is just a "potilic issue" and can be "normal" that the USA is trying to keep the money expenses inside their country instead of expending money somewhere else.
However my only suggestion will be for everybody to PLEASE USE the transportation for the tourism and AVOID using the locals transportation.
If your hotel is on the highway please avoid trying to cross the highways or walk after midnight by yourself in dark streets... there are always bad people everywhere... and
if you do not know the country, the language or the people do not try to use the local facilities just for save some dollars!!!

Always ask for a legit SOURCE before listening to these outrageous stories. Get the truth/facts before making a decision or stating an opinion.

This was on Fox News last night as well. I think it is good to be smart and informed, not scared:

U.S. State Department Issues Travel Alert for Mexico - Presidential Politics | Political News - FOXNews.com
The U.S. State Department has renewed a travel advisory warning Americans about an increase in violence along the U.S.-Mexico border.
The alert does not recommend staying away from the country or any particular part of it, but advises American to stay away from prostitution and drug-dealing areas.
It recommends visiting only legitimate business and tourist areas.
The alert issued Friday says violent crime is particularly worrisome along the U.S.-Mexico border, where automatic weapons and grenades have been used in clashes between police and drug traffickers.
More than 6,000 people were killed in drug violence in Mexico last year.
