MEXICO CITY -- Videos showing Leon police practicing torture techniques on a fellow officer and dragging another through vomit at the instruction of a U.S. adviser created an uproar Tuesday in Mexico, which has struggled to eliminate torture in law enforcement.
He said the English-speaking man was part of a private U.S. security company helping to train the agents, but he refused to give details.
A third video transmitted by the Televisa network showed officers jumping on the ribs of a suspect curled into a fetal position in the bed of a pickup truck. Tornero said that the case, which occurred several months earlier, was under investigation and that the officers involved had disappeared.

I'll tell you what:
You folks dismissing this as "irrelevant" need a wake up call...
These SAME "Private Security" Firms (a.k.a Corporate MERCENARIES) are operating here on DOMESTIC soil. And they are being continually linked to Law Enforcement, and domestic paramilitary exercises HERE IN THE STATES. That should be enough for people to pay attention to what is taking place in these videos. Secondary is the continual overwhelming signs of this nation drifting towards FASCISM, and a total Police state rule. If this continues to escalate, who do you think is going to be behind many of the "crushing of dissent" exercises?
Thirdly, I can't believe the apathy CONTINUALLY displayed by people towards TORTURE. Firms TEACHING torture techniques to anyone should be frowned upon, but yet we see people, right here, going "so what?"
