The Life Of Zih

Naw, I'm just looking at what the typical Euro Cop puts up with, and what a Mexico Cop may have to put up with.

I don't think that whole unarmed thing washes.


I certainly don't have the solutions to Mexico's crime problems, but doubt that arming everyone to the teeth will be among the solutions. It has been widely reported that municipal police in many areas of the country are poorly-trained at best, and essentially untrained at worst. I sympathize with anyone reluctant to patrol without weapons, when the bad guys are so well-armed, but I wonder at the wisdom of having 40, 50 or 60 armed, untrained or poorly-trained municipal police officers roaming the city. Makes me think of the New Year's Eve we were sitting at Rufo's and a truckload of municipal police drove by, firing their rifles into the air. Most of the other diners thought it was fireworks, but it wasn't.
