Yes the police in Mexico are corrupt as hell they can drag you out of your car and blow your brains out if they feel like it then dump you in a
But I fear the police in the US far more than a cop in Mexico.
My dad says that when he first came to Mexico all an American had to do was look at a Mexican funny and the police would drag who ever my dad was
looking at funny away and put them in a squad car. My dad never understood why they did that?
The police in Mexico have always treated my dad with the utmost respect because he is an American. It’s almost cute to watch how the cops grin at my
father when he speaks fluent Spanish with his heavy accent. My dad even barters with them on how much he is willing to give them for running a
One day he haggled a cop (respectfully) for 30 min. He had a wad of cash in one pocket and three bucks in the other. Guess how much he told the cop he
had. After 30 min the cop left with the three bucks and we went on our way.
I have a high level of respect for cops in Mexico. I hope they never change.
But now lets talk about the cops in the US shale we?
They do every thing the cops in Mexico do except treat you with respect or cut you a break. They hide like predators in dark allies like thieves. They
are heartless machines that have no common sense and execute the law ruthlessly on any man, woman or child.
When is the last time you saw a Mexican cop tasering a pregnant women?
When is the last time you ever saw a Mexican cop break and mans arm or dislocating a mans shoulder by forcing it up his back?
When is the last time you saw a Mexican cop beat a man half to death just because he was black?
When is the last time you saw a Mexican cop treat a woman like they are treated like American cops. Treating a woman like that is a disgrace to the
honor of a cop in Mexico.
People run from cops in Mexico all the time. They get caught sent to jail and released the next day no big deal.
But in the USA if you don’t stop the full three sec at a stop sign you get a big ticket your car insurance goes up. You can’t make that payment on
your house so you loose it. You wife leaves you. The kids that the cops don’t let you spank hate you and become potheads then they go kill 30 kids
at their school. You go crazy and you jump of a bridg.
I feel safe like I am with a human being that I can talk to. A person who is out to make some side cash.
Not a god who is out to make his quota on DUI’s so he can get a promotion. Who spits on the US constitution to do it too. Who gives tickets out to
90 year old ladies who cant see that good.
Look at your over crowded prisons that’s corruption at its best. I bet you people don’t even know that they are privatized prisons. All cops in
the us want to do is fill them up anyway possible.
I’ll take a Mexican cop blowing my brains out over that any day kiddo.
