I'm wondering what happens when the US starts having cartel style violence happen on the scale that it does here, you know, where daughter's fingers start getting cut off while they're on the phone with you...

I'm just saying, law enforcement doesn't stop anything, especiall once the criminals figure out that there are just better ways to keep law enforcement officers in line, longarms, soft targets, etc. It's all a charade.

The thing that I would worry about, is fixing the economy. That is the ony thing that keeps crime in check. I've found out all about it living and working here. It certainly isn't "The LAW:"  afro

We may just find out. However, there is nothing new about badguys targeting cops. There were old school responses to such things that established lines that were respected. Borders can be crossed both ways.

Indeed. It's all about who has the most to lose, wins. That, or the most brutal. Most people don't belong in law enforcement. Not really. Especially when they aren't targeting cops, but their families. The economy is key... give everyone a chance to win... at least a chance, and I hate Obama...not saying to give it away, but at least make it possible. I don't know though...economics aren't my thing. I <3 my FAL.

Despite millions in U.S. aid, police corruption plagues Mexico

Mexico’s plague of police corruption
Despite millions in U.S. aid, forces continue to be outgunned, overwhelmed — and often purchased outright — by gangsters

DUDLEY ALTHAUS
, HOUSTON CHRONICLE | October 18, 2010

MEXICO CITY — City cops killing their own mayors; state jailers helping inmates escape; federal agents mutinying against corrupt commanders; outgunned officers cut down in ambushes or assassinated because they work for gangster rivals.

Always precariously frayed, Mexico's thin blue line seems ready to snap.

Six prison guards were killed Wednesday as they left their night shift in Chihuahua City, 200 miles south of El Paso. On Tuesday, the head of a police commander supposedly investigating the death of an American on the Texas border was packed into a suitcase and sent to a local army base.

Mexicans justifiably have long considered their police suspect. But today many of those wearing the badge are even more brazenly bad: either unwilling or unable to squelch the lawless terror that's claimed nearly 30,000 lives in less than four years.

State and local forces, which employ 90 percent of Mexico's 430,000 officers, find themselves outgunned, overwhelmed and often purchased outright by gangsters.

Despite some dramatic improvements — aided by U.S. dollars and training under the $1.6 billion Merida Initiative — Mexico's 32,000 federal police remain spread thin and hobbled by graft. And many in Mexico consider the American investment little help so far against the bloody tide wrought by drug gangs.


Grasping for a cure, President Felipe Calderon and other officials are pushing to unify Mexico's nearly 2,000 municipal police under 32 state agencies that they insist can better withstand the criminals' volleys of bullets and cash.

"The tentacles of organized crime have touched everyone," said Ignacio Manjarrez, who oversees public security issues for a powerful business association in Chihuahua, the state bordering West Texas that has become Mexico's most violent. "There are some who are loyal to their uniform and others who will take money from anyone and everyone.

"We let it into our society. Now we are paying the consequences."

Many actions, few results

Across Mexico, local, state and federal police forces have been purged, then purged again. Veteran officers and recruits alike undergo polygraphs, drug tests and background checks. A national database has been set up to ensure that those flushed from one force don't resurface in another.

Still the plague persists.

One of the surest signals that rivals are going to war over a community or smuggling routes are the dumped corpses of cops who start turning up dead. Many, if not most, of the officers are targeted because they work for one gang or the other.

Scores of federal officers rebelled this summer, accusing their commanders of extortion in Ciudad Juarez, the murderous border city that Calderon pledged to pacify. As a result, Mexican officials fired a tenth of the federal police force.

The warden and some guards at a Durango state prison were arrested in July after a policeman confessed in a taped gangland interrogation that they aided an imprisoned crime boss's nightly release so he could kill his enemies.

Another prison warden and scores of guards were detained in August following the breakout of 85 gangsters in Reynosa, on the Rio Grande near McAllen.

On Friday, the governor of Tamaulipas state, which borders South Texas, ordered the purging of the police force in the important port city of Tampico. Gov. Eugenio Hernandez said he took the action following officers' apparent participation in this week's brief abduction of five university students in the city.

$100 million a month

Mexico's top federal policeman, Genaro Garcia Luna, has estimated gangsters pass out some $100 million each month to local and state cops on the take.

"There really is no internal capacity or appetite to try to get their arms around corruption," said a former U.S. official with intimate knowledge of Mexico's security forces. "Anyone who sticks their head up, wanting to make a change, is eliminated."

Edelmiro Cavazos, mayor of Santiago, a picturesque Monterrey suburb, had vowed after taking office to clean up its police force, which many believe is controlled by the gangster band known as the Zetas.

He barely got the chance to try.

Killers came for him in August, arriving at his home on five trucks, a surveillance tape showing their headlights slicing the night like knives as his own police bodyguard waved them in.

A workman found Cavazos' blindfolded and bound body a few days later, tortured, shot three times and dumped like rubbish along a highway outside Santiago.

The bodyguard and six other officers from Santiago's police force are among those accused in the killing.

"They considered him an obstacle," the Nuevo Leon state attorney general said.

Following Cavazos' slaying and that of 600 others in the Monterrey area this year, Nuevo Leon Gov. Rodrigo Medina proposed bringing municipal police forces under unified state command.

"We have to act as a common front," Medina told reporters. "If we are divided in isolated forces and we have a united organized crime against us and society, we aren't going to be able to articulate the forceful response we need."

New command structure

The tiny western state of Aguascalientes created a unified police command this week. And Calderon won support for the plan Tuesday from 10 newly elected governors.

"Having institutions that enjoy the full confidence of the public can't be put off," Calderon told the new governors. "The single police command is a crucial element in achieving the peace and tranquility that Mexicans deserve."

Although small training programs for state and local forces exist, American dollars by way of the $1.6 billion Merida Initiative until now have been aimed mostly at Mexico's federal police.

Intelligence gathering and sharing has been enhanced and computer systems upgraded. U.S. and other foreign experts have given extensive training to a third of the federal force, officials say, with another 10,000 Mexican officers attending workshops.

"Beyond the money, the Merida plan put information and technology at the disposal of the Mexican government," said Manlio Fabio Beltrones, president of Mexico's senate, whose Institutional Revolutionary Party is widely favored to reclaim the presidency in 2012.

Its critics argue that the U.S. aid has failed to curtail the violence, leaving communities and local police forces at the mercy of gangsters.

Javier Aguayo y Camargo, a retired army general who was replaced as Chihuahua City's police chief this month, said no one has "figured out how to make the reforms work."

"The resources of Merida remain at the federal level," Aguayo y Carmargo said. "We haven't felt any of it. They need to support the states and municipalities."

Gangs reverse gains

Chihuahua City, capital of the state bordering West Texas, underscores just how quickly the drug wars have overpowered even the best attempts to strengthen local police.

Under a succession of mayors since the late 1990s, the city's police steadily improved. Hiring standards were raised, record keeping improved, arrest and booking processes overhauled. A citizen's oversight committee was set up with significant influence within the department.

Three years ago, the 1,100-officer force became the first in Mexico to be accredited by CALEA, a U.S.-based law enforcement association that rigorously evaluates police administrative standards. Only a handful of other Mexican cities have since won accreditation.

Then Mexico's gangland wars arrived in 2008.

The city of 800,000 has been racked this year by an average of four killings daily, according to a recent study by El Heraldo, the leading local newspaper, about 30 times more than a few years ago. It now ranks as Mexico's third most murderous city, behind Ciudad Juarez and Culiacan, capital of the gangster-infested state of Sinaloa, federal officials say.

Scores of city police officers have been fired for suspected corruption. More than two dozen others have been killed, either gunned down in street battles or assassinated by gangsters.

"If with all this equipment and training they are overwhelmed by the criminals, what happens in other places?" said Manjarrez, the businessman who monitors public security matters in Chihuahua. "As prepared as we were, we never saw this tsunami coming."

Dude... It would be wonderful if just once, someone that has actually worked here, for the Mexican government, wrote one of these things. Is there corruption? In a word, yes, but then how many go to work, doing the right thing, knowing that their own partners may kidnap, torture, and kill them and their families. Want to talk about Dorner, you go right ahead, but keep it in your country because the last I checked, none of the law enforcement up there has to go to work daily with what I just listed above. We have the best and worst of both. Try a little respect.

I like a lot of the things I'm learning here, like how criminals should be treated. What I don't understand is why we don't treat politicians that are criminals in the same manner (they do in some other countries), leaving the power vacuum to be filled by those that actually have integrity.

I have to wonder where the United States would be if it weren't busy doing warrantless wiretapping (under Bush, even with wide leniency by the FISA court in terms of obtaining warrants after the fact - they still didn't bother), spying on it's own citizens, or actually staying out of countries where they obviously aren't welcome, ceasing the role of world super cop. I wonder what that would look like.

I've said it before and I will say it again, multiculturalism has never worked.

In every instance in history, societies that have been multicultural, have at one point or another led to either the death of the weaker groups, the group's expulsion, or assimilation (through being bred into), the stronger group.

Nature dictates that there is no such thing as getting along. It doesn't mean that people are basically racist or hate each other. It just means that people intuitively seek to protect their subset.

Darwin and others were right.

AYUTLA, Mexico—Masked men, rifles slung over their shoulders, stand guard on a lonely rural road, checking IDs and questioning travelers. They wear no uniforms, flash no badges, but they are the law here now.

A dozen villages in the area have risen up in armed revolt against local drug traffickers that have terrorized the region and a government that residents say is incapable of protecting them from organized crime.

 
Ranchers in Tecoanapa, near Ayutla, voted Sunday in favor of having local militiamen provide security.
..
The villages in the hilly southern Mexican state of Guerrero now forbid the Mexican army and state and federal police from entering. Ragtag militias carrying a motley arsenal of machetes, old hunting rifles and the occasional AR-15 semiautomatic rifle control the towns. Strangers aren't allowed entry. There is a 10 p.m. curfew. More than 50 prisoners, accused of being in drug gangs, sit in makeshift jails. Their fates hinge on public trials that began Thursday when the accused were arraigned before villagers, who will act as judge and jury.
This has always been the only way law enforcement works effectively. Otherwise corruption exists and you can bet the locals know exactly what is going on and are there when things are actually happening. Police as a whole should cease to exist. They just aren't the best way. People being responsible for themselves is the best way.

Yes. See Graham v. Connor.

Since you're so smart.... "Graham's argument that it was error to require him to prove that the allegedly excessive force was applied maliciously and sadistically to cause harm, and holding that a reasonable jury applying the Johnson v. Glick test to his evidence could not find that the force applied was constitutionally excessive."

Do you mind explaining for those of us that aren't quite as bright as you are, what isn't "constitutionally excessive" about having 60+ rounds fired at you when you are working and minding your own business?

Well, not everyone can measure up to the high standards of Mexican law enforcement.

Maybe it is the amount of practice that we get. I am certain when we put thirty rounds downrange, we score more than two hits, especially against unarmed targets, if we were to shoot at unarmed targets... then again, that's kind of my question. Why would you? They have a problem identifying who it is they actually are shooting at before taking the safety off of their weapon, drawing a bead, and engaging? I particularly like how they said that was an accident. They should be up on attempted murder charges in all three shootings.

I have been busy in Mexico. Very busy. I can actually say the same of anyone that has been subjected to years in the law enforcement environment. A good example of that would be the two unarmed women that were not threatening anyone and were fired upon repeatedly by the police. Last time I checked, it is our job to arrest people, not execute them. Maybe I missed the memo.

33  Politics, Religion, Science, Culture and Humanities / Politics & Religion / Re: We the Well-armed People (Gun rights stuff ) on: December 17, 2012, 07:11:50 PM
Make no question about it. Gun control is about government control of citizens, given away by people that believe the world can be a "safe" place.

Safety is an illusion. It simply doesn't exist.
Firearms are about being able to inflict violence in order to exert control. That is why the police and military have them.

Gun control advocates will throw every insult and excuse under the sun at people that see the wisdom in being able to protect oneself. They will say things like "real men don't need to hide behind a gun," but they expect their police to have them, "thirty round magazines aren't needed to hunt deer," and "guns kill."

These same liberals never want to confront the argument that many dictators around the world have killed the same people they were supposed to protect, with a body-count that tallies in the hundreds of millions of innocents killed. We have seen this same lesson repeated throughout history time and time again, yet they choose to ignore it.

Throughout the course of mankind, there has only ever been one pertinent question in regard to freedom: "Can my violence conquer your violence?"

Every shred of freedom that has ever existed has depended upon the ability to inflict violence if necessary. With examples like Stalin, Hitler, Kim il Sung, Kim Jong Il, Pol Pot, Mao, Castro, Amin, Pinochet, Taylor, and many, many others, we would be ill advised to forgo our inalienable right to defend ourselves from anyone, especially those that wield power simply because others "think" the world can be made into a safe place to live.

Gun control MUST be resisted at any and all costs! History has shown us as much.

You have to REALLY believe in yourself and what you are doing. And the worst part is even if you really are the best, something decades ago could topple it all in an instant.
I hate my past. I hate not knowing. Even to me, saying that I showed up and did my best is just chickenshit. There is no try. There are only "did," and "did not." God, I hope I "did." Please. I don't ask for so much You know.
38  DBMA Espanol / Espanol Discussion / Re: Mexico on: October 29, 2012, 09:34:13 PM


The quarter will also see the inauguration of Mexico's next president, Enrique Pena Nieto, on Dec. 1. Pena Nieto has discussed plans to reduce overall violence by 50 percent in the first year of his presidency by creating a national gendarmerie, transferring military troops to the federal police and honing the military's focus on violent crimes. Whether those plans will be pursued remains to be seen, and any significant shifts in military and law enforcement policies probably will not occur until 2013.
 


I am certain they are taking Nieto's approach to a national gendarmerie very seriously.
Generally, many of the Municipal and Ministerial police are aligned with organized crime, especially the Municipales. They call them Polizetas and there is much truth to it.
As of late, they are changing all of the police and or agents here to being "Acreditables" which is trained more or less in SWAT tactics, even at the municipal level, but more importantly, each needing to put in their training at one of a few select military bases and pass extensive confidence tests in addition to polygraph tests.
At the end of that, they will be sent back to their respective bases, or if working at a State or Federal level, will be sent to one of three groups depending upon their level of education and or specialty; be it Operativos, Investigaciones, or Tacticos... the latter two requiring at least a Bachelors degree or Masters degree respectively.

There is much to be done in the way of combatting corruption, but it is easy to say that the selection process just got much steeper, and that even as this is being typed, there are former police officers being fired in droves; of which, I am certain when Nieto starts spending 60% of the budget on combatting this war, and that little of that money being reinvested in the economy, that the former agents and officers will seek work at the hands of the cartels. We will have to wait and see how that goes.

On other levels, the amount of cooperation between military, state, and federal agencies has been improving and often, the three even work on missions together.

Things are getting worse in Mexico, but at the same time, it is leading to Mexico becoming a better country with less lawlessness. It is the course that needs to be followed and IMO Nieto is correct in his approach.

Work has been going very well. SEDENA lost my original documents that I need to present for the test for my CUIP. Praying I can get it sorted in two days.

Ummm , , , the way I took that was that if you're a dick, you're not living by the principles.  Yes?
I think that everyone that supports Obama is a dick, but then, that´s me.

That was always my understanding, a lack of Heart.

I have zero heart.

Basically, point being; It seems the bigger the tribe grows, that to classify someone as a dick because they don´t hold the same views as others as a result of their life experiences to me, seems small. Maybe I am wrong. I know that I am newer than most, so, who am I to say?

Now I know the rules.

Didn´t know it was a popularity contest. Thought it was living by certain principles.

I don´t know if I will be able to go to gatherings in the US anymore for quite some time. I am basically married to Mexico now. Either way, I want to thank everyone for teaching me, for fighting me, and wish you the best. I´ll continue training here and fight with Guro Sanchez when work allows for it. I´m more than willing to fight and get lots of training every single day.
Perhaps the DBMA Distance program for military and law enforcement would be an option so I could start growing the tribe here.
Either way, miss you guys.

Plane tickets bought, officially "in"!

Looking forward to standing with the tribe.

Woof!

Wish I was there. It´d be fun for round two. Have fun.
