    The leak took place off the coast of Louisiana. It had nothing to so with the country of Mexico and caused no damage in Mexico. In simple terms, the cause was the lid ( blowout preventer) on the undersea oil well, blew off. That can happen when there is a buildup of gas in the well.

    “crime and violence are serious problems and can occur anywhere.”…
