C.S.I.: Ciudad Juarez
Say one thing about Mexico: there doesn't seem to be an ammunition shortage. Oh, wait: they get that stuff over here. Along with the guns.
Spend a little time on Google and you can find sites with fairly extraordinary (and graphic) photographs of Mexican crime scenes, the huge majority of which depict drug-related murders in which hundreds or thousands of bullets were fired.
Which hints that the makers of those yellow evidence markers are doing quite a good business.
