MEXICO CITY – Most of a small Mexican town's police force has quit after armed men ambushed and wounded two of their officers.
Meanwhile, people in some Mexican towns have begun taking the law into their own hands. In Mexico State, on the outskirts of Mexico City, authorities said Tuesday that residents of a town beat a man death on suspicion of robbing a young couple of 200 pesos (about $16) and a cell phone Monday.
The suspect and an accomplice allegedly held up the couple with a knife and what later was found to be a toy gun.
About 300 people pursued the two men, caught one and beat him so badly with sticks and fists that he died in an ambulance, officials said.
its funny how they don't even try to fight back they just quit. I guess they only care for there own personal safety, not the safety of the town. To serve and protect, only to the extent that your life is not on the line. Good job, seems this kind of thing is quite common for mexicans.
tempesillest, You are just worthless. Seems you forgot about 1/3 of a police force who abandon their job when a certain hurricane hit the Big Easy.
Easy to talk trash when your not the one in the crosshairs.
