Mexican cartels are in serious problems now. These cops will shoot to kill.




Police in Alvarado, Mexico have been stripped of their firearms and issued slingshots and stones after most of the department failed competency tests. Of the department’s 130 officers only 30 passed the tests.

It would be something like " Come mis calzones", but sounds weird/erotic. Don't say it if you're drunk in a party.

Do they give competency tests to officers in the USA? I'd like to see that data.

Also I can imagine it being a pain to get skilled enough with a slingshot to actually make it an effective deterrent.

Coma mis pantalones cortos!!

Im sure there's some sort of shorthand for pantolones cortos, but my Spanish knowledge never exceeded 10th grade basic crap.

On topic: that's some hilariously embarrassing punishment. Genius though! Those cops are gonna get proficient reallllll quick.


'Mexican slingshot cops' needs to be a band name.

I don't know but the video shows just one slingshot cop taking care of a whole gang. Must be a semi-automatic weapon.

No kidding. Just watch the video if no time to read the source.

Kinda sounds like poetic justice to me.

If only they would do a "competency tests" over here in Australia on the police, then force everyone who fails to patrol the streets with nothing more than a sling shot.

Every copper in Australia would probably end up packing nothing more than a frickin sling shot... LOL.

That wasn't a gang


That was a bunch of kids without slingshots or a tree to hide behind.

I’m wondering how US state laws would deal with someone who shot a person who was threatening them with a slingshot? It is a deadly weapon. One marble to the dome could do you in.

I think you could have a reasonable case for self-defense.

Here in New Jersey slingshots are illegal.

They have crappy sling shots too. You CAN make lethal sling shots. We did use them for hunting and for war up until guns came around.

Holy hell. Start militias Mexico. Arm your people.

Give them their guns back, criminals beware.

Strangely enough Mexican people say "shorts" just the same

"Comete mis shorts"

Or "it's too hot, i'll wear shorts" = "Hace mucho calor, me pondre shorts"

Lmao
