Local news (increase in security presence)

This is why I have been so skeptical of the idea of the National Guard. They are cycled in and out of our community on a regular basis and in my opinion have very little invested in the well being of our communities. Efforts to create a local police force that actually makes an effort to investigate and solve crimes would probably be far more effective. Instead we have multiple "law enforcement" agencies riding around in trucks with guns and all the criminals have to do is "time" their activities around the presence of those agents. So time and time again the agencies show up 10,15,20 minutes afterwards and pose for pictures as if they are doing something while little effort seems to go into actually pursuing the perpetrators. Once they get away the chances that the criminals will get caught is statistically less than 1%. Meanwhile there are tens of thousands of people in prison who haven't even had a trial yet because they lack the connections and resources to get on the docket of a corrupt and underfunded judiciary. It seems like we Mexicans need to learn from the failed policy of putting more military on the streets and start doing something different like increasing the odds of getting caught and being fairly tried and convicted for those crimes. That is a more proven way of deterring crime.
