Elite unit´s image tarnished by scandals
A string of incidents, including a DVD recording of a drug-related execution, have shaken Mexico´s faith in the new Federal Investigation Agency, created to fight powerful organized crime rings.
Those drug-related executions do sometimes "shake" the faith in law enforcement. Not completely destroy the faith... just shake it a little.
A recent series of indictments and disclosures about corrupt federal agents has rocked the federal Attorney General´s Office (PGR) and undermined one of President Vicente Fox´s few solid accomplishments: the creation of an elite, honest federal force to fight kidnappers and drug dealers.
The charges accuse federal agents of doing the bidding of drug traffickers and carrying out kidnappings and extortion plots, the same kind of corruption the agency was created to stop.
Hey I've got a plan! Let's leave our border open with these lunatics so that they can smuggle drugs and criminals into our country! That will keep Americans safe because we all know that protection of the American people is the governments highest priority. Right after making sure that our toilets don't flush too much water.
