MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – Mexican authorities arrested five policemen on Monday on suspicion of torture after a video was made public showing police officers submerging a detainee's head in a bucket of water.
An official at the attorney general's office said five Mexico City police officers were taken into custody over the alleged torture, which took place in the capital's tough inner city neighborhood of Tepito last month.
Soon after the incident, a video was posted on the Internet showing a man with his shirt pulled over his head being dunked in a bucket of water while in the custody of a unit of well-armed policemen. www.youtube.com...

I agree with you entirely with being outraged....then stepping back with a real big '....but lets hear more first..'. I think many of us have seen the sheer evil some of those cartel turkey doctors can do to their fellow human beings..and I need not get more graphic than that. If someone has seen the images, they'll never "unsee" it. If not....don't go looking for them. Some things are truly better left alone on the net.
If water boy was one of those cartel killers or turkey doctors, then I'd want tickets for the next show, not discipline for the cops who are putting it on. The civil war down there has aspects that are beyond belief to a polite American mind...and need to be considered before condemning anyone out of hand for what we see a small snippet of.
Just my thoughts.
