I see many threads here on how horrible US cops are, but never any other countries.

Here's a nice bedtime story. I wonder if anyone will be up in arms over this on ATS? Probably not.

One more reason for me to stay away from Meheekoe. Had experiences down their that I should have known better. The most corupt police I have ever dealed with, rights? what rights. Word of advise, if you go to tourist towns-Stay with other tourists and never venture out with out being able to speak spanish, and always have cash hidden to bribe your way out if something happens, Certain border towns are off limits to to Military and there is a reason for that too.

One more thing to add, is Mexico has nothing to offer that the US doesn't; so why bother going on vacation there...........just my opinion of coarse and that how I see it.

Well, that kind of thing can happen anywhere in the world and happens in the U.S. more often than you think.

It's not smart to resist police anywhere - it matters not whether your in the wrong or right. When you're overpowered and outnumbered you have to remember there will be another day when you can turn the odds, if you shut up and stay alive.

Mexico is known for corrupt police. I remember going to Mexico many times when I lived in Southern California back in the early seventies and it was a rule that you carried certain items like cash & cigarettes (and a fish - cause we'd always go fishing there) for the purposes of paying the police if you got pulled over.

This is a very sad story indeed. Obviously in no way am I siding with the police officers, however, in the year 2008 people should know better than to resist arrest by police, let alone the Mexican police. Resistance isn't going to get you anywhere but hurt or killed. You're already being arrested...just accept it and fight it at court. Which leads me to wonder if this guy was intoxicated or what?

Personally I think in the year 2008 people should know better than to travel to Mexico period. There are a few Canadians killed there every year yet they still buy up the tickets. I'm sure there are more than a few Americans killed every year. Why would people go to a place that is wellknown to be dangerous and corrupt just to save a few bucks on a vacation? It's insane.

How did the tourist die is it determined yet?
Many people die in jail.
And in the rest of the world every second.
Why is it such a big deal when someone dies, when it happens to all of us.
You are all going to die, I am going to die, what is the issue with the living and people who have died.
