Replacing corrupt cops with equally corrupt cops is hardly going to solve the problem, as Mexico's been finding out for the last couple of decades.

But I guess they have to do something...

And I just bet these fired cops now work for the cartels, so this is a no win situation....pretty frustrating and I really think the time has come for the UN to take on the task of vaporizing all the gangs. Mexico is lost and no new president will do any better. When the news can't even be reported for fear of losing your life, PATHETIC.

ALL the cops end up working for the cartels, since they make little or no money as police and often have families which are threatened by cartel thugs.'Take the money, or your wife takes a bullet' is a pretty easy choice, sad to say.
