"One of the videos, obtained two weeks ago by the newspaper El Heraldo de Leon, shows police appearing to squirt water up a man's nose, a torture technique once notorious among Mexican police. They then dunk his head in a hole that an unidentified voice on the video says is full of excrement and rats. In another video, an unidentified English-speaking trainer asks a police agent to roll in his own vomit"

Sounds like a college FRAT party here in the U.S.

MEXICO CITY (AP) – “A Mexican police chief was fired Friday following the release of two police training videos that show officers practicing torture techniques, local media reported”. Great, now where are amnesty international and the World Court on this matter. These two bodies and the socialist liberals in the US claim that US troops is using torture against insurgents, and is condemning our soldiers but nothing is said about the Mexican police torturing their our citizens.

I guarantee you they will blame America first. Note the little blurb about an English speaking man belonging to a private U.S. security company hired to help train the agents.

Relax everybody; Mexico has been torturing their prisoners for decades, so what is new.
Sleep deprivation, one meal a day, long hours on your feet, loud noises, holding your breath underwater for extended periods, claiming to a high area and then jumping out; seem like torture, but it is not, it is combat training for an 11B infantryman in an Ranger Company. If any one ever was a student at the USA or USAF Escape, Evasion Course underwent simulated torture, and no matter how strong you think you are, you will break.

Everybody has their price. If someone offered you a boat load of money to train somebody to do something, I bet you'd be right on it. It's just the nature of the beast. We are all money w/hores.

My husband an 18Z formally a 2nd Batt. 75th Ranger (Ft. Lewis) never broke, that is, until he married me.

You are free to return to your own beloved homeland, Mexico, anytime.
Right now will do.
Start packing, I'm sure they will welcome you home to Mexico with open arms.

Your life will be so much better when you get back to the wonderful, perfect nation of Mexico.
After all, it is so perfect south of the border that a million Mexican citizens flee every year, like rats off a sinking ship, illegally crossing the border into the United States, knowing that they are breaking the law and they will get deported when they are caught, because of course, the USA is such a horrible place to live, much worse than Mexico.

Adios, don't hurry back here anytime soon.

Send him to Guantanamo. He'll not only break, but he'll come out even more mentally retarded than you are.

Who said he's from Mexico you idiot? His post used the name "Raul"? Is that a name only used by Mexicans? What we need to do is get rid of loser bigots like you who don't do anything toward fixing the illegal immigrant problem except vent your ignorance and hatred thus poisoning the discussion.

HAHAHA. What is happening at Guantanamo goes far beyond that nonsense. The extreme psychological and physical torture they are carrying out will not only "break" people, but render them clinically insane. By the way, I'm not even referring to "water boarding".

You all are so stupid with your anti Mexican rhetoric! Every time I read these posts I just can't stop laughing at the stupid things you guys write. And for that person that posted this,(Note the little blurb about an English speaking man belonging to a private U.S. security company hired to help train the agents.) you should probably read the article more carefully and you'll see that it comes from the AP (Associated Press), which is an American news agency. It's just amazing how dumb people are. Oh and also Cheyenne Z, why does Raul have to go back to Mexico? Just because he posted (Good job America!) You don't even know if he is from Mexico but what can I expect from a typical American who doesn't know better. You're just like the federal government thinking that all Latinos are the same and come from the same country. Maybe you should read a little more before you make comments like those.

You say the sweetest things. When you speak, is your voice muffled? Methinks it is.

+++Hey A$$ H01E+++ As per Amnesty International every country on the planate engages in torture as a systemic part of getting information from suspected criminals, terrorist, and so on, what makes this news is the following statement,In another video, an unidentified English-speaking trainer asks a police agent to roll in his own vomit. The English-speaking man belonged to a private U.S. security company hired to help train the agents, ex-police chief Tornero had said, other wise who would give a sh#t about the story, its old news.
