One in 5 murderers are convicted in Mexico. It is easier to grab a low flying duck then it is to put forth the effort, due dillagence and work to take down a real crimminal. Mexico is far behind the USA in forensics and other means of catching crimminals. Just like many other things that are far behind. Such as education. The main root of many of their problems.

After a Juarez Mexican taxi driver witnessed two murderer's being caught by the police at the El Paso Airport within 5 minutes after it took place. He stated on the TV that the difference between police here in the USA and Mexico is that the police in the USA actually catch the crimminals.

A petty thieve is more likely to spend time then a drug dealer or murderer here in Mexico.

If you think you have to worry about the killers being prosecuted just read the article below. This was just posted in the El Heraldo this morning. In Northen Chihuahua the federal police or extorting people, taking their cars, threatening bodily harm to innocents.

These are supposed to be elite forces that are supposed to be protecting the people of Mexico. They are trained thugs. The upper echelon in the government is so out of touch with what is really happening on the ground.

This is the Mexican culture. This mentality is engrained in society here. Everyone is afraid of being taken by their neighbors and even their own family.

This is why the borders need to be watched more closely, deport illegals and start a process to speed up work permits and visas to those that qualify. Many of the people that come illegaly would not qualify.

The police were up in arms when a boy was killed by our border patrol for throwing rocks. Ironic is it not. These guys could care less about their own people, but put on a show if a hair is touched by USA agents.

Jesus Manuel Ruiz Chihuahua, Chihuahua.- A total of 132 complaints of extortion by federal police as well as remains of vehicles, which could prove as theft, because the courts fail to prosecutors, were reported yesterday by Pavel Aguilar Raynal, leader of the Democratic Peasant Union, who noted that the patience of their constituents over and that as of next Friday will take the route of the facts and federal offices. "They are thieves in uniform, have been removed amounts up to 60 000 pesos to families with threats that if they'll put their money delivered to prison for federal crimes such as forgery of documents, sometimes invented the stolen vehicle for people to fall into fear and accept more quickly give cash, "he said. He noted that, for example, in Nuevo Casas Grandes have been cases of extortion huge, "we know now are conning people, wanting to remove the vehicle, to tell you that prefer not to stop them, but vehicles delivered to them and they do not reach the tax courts, "he added. emphasized that have been extorted in a very vile, greedy, by the federal police, who two years to date have increased "rates" of extortion 2 thousand to over 60 thousand dollars, due to the success they have had to operate with impunity. "They are judge and jury, then have no way to lose, take advantage of the innocence of many owners who disregard the law and take their money and vehicles, and if necessary threaten that they will find out the commands or federal threatened that if you are 'digging' will have serious consequences. " have been noted that expectant, patient, observing the progress of measures that the State Government has made to the Federal Government to approve the regulation, however, noted that there has been a closure by the federal authority. "We will not be illegal, so we put stickers on our vehicles to be identified, now we put them plates or put the new sticker issued by the State Government, we demonstrate that we want to regularize our situation, then do not see why we are extorting or stealing these thieves disguised as federal agents. " A From this Friday or next Monday, said it will begin to summon more than 100 thousand vehicle owners from abroad, even without regularization, in order to give demonstrations and to take federal agencies to be heard against his dissent and the federal requirement to regularize their vehicles. It should be noted that the road towards Cuauhtemoc and the Sierra Tarahumara in Anahuac, Nuevo Casas Grandes, in Chihuahua to Aldama highway, Aldama-Ojinaga, Villa Ahumada on Highway- Juarez, and in the Delicias road-Jimenez, there have been most extortion, Aguilar explained Raynal.

This is the stuff that makes your blood boil, and this is just the tip of the iceberg as to the atrocities performed by federal agents in Mexico. They truly are the judge, jury and executioners. No accountability. Watch nothing will be done about it.
