    Every cop in town quits after Mexico attack Gunmen fired more than 1,000 bullets at s

    Didn't they sign up to be cops which requires occasionally putting yourself in harms way?

    MEXICO CITY The entire police force of a small northern Mexican town quit after gunmen attacked their recently inaugurated headquarters, according to local reports on Wednesday.

    Los Ramones Mayor Santos Salinas said nobody was injured in Monday night's attack, during which gunmen fired more than 1,000 bullets at the building's facade, according to Noroeste newspaper's website. Six grenades, of which three detonated, were also flung at the building, the newspaper reported.

    "Fortunately, those who were inside the building threw themselves on the ground and nobody was hurt," Salinas told the newspaper.

    All 14 members of the force reportedly resigned Tuesday. Nobody answered the phones at Salinas' offices, according to The Associated Press.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    Not that kind of harm. Mexico's government needs to get some mean ass mofo's with some big automatic weapons, tanks and helo's and go clean house. I'm talking whupass on an epic scale. They cannot leave this **** to the local cops - these guys best skill is taking bribes for traffic infractions. The cartels need to be exterminated - and until that happens, this is just going to get worse.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Yes, but we're talking about a level of violence that almost makes Tikrit look like a cakewalk.

    These cartels are the people who target the families of police and politicians who oppose them, and chop up women and children with machetes or tie them inside stacks of rubber tires then set them on fire. Shooting up the police station was probably their idea of a "Friendly warning".

    Yes. That.

    There is no place in America that a cop is required to put themselves in harms way. So why should there be in Mexico when the criminals are probably going to kill you should they get the desire.

    It's not that simple. Some regions of Mexico are completely controlled by the cartels, who make law enforcement an offer: silver or lead...take the money and become corrupt, or die.

    It's one thing to risk dying. It's another thing to face certain death.

    You clearly don't know much about this subject, and aren't familiar with the risks involved in policing some major cities in the U.S. I work with guys who put themselves in harm's way on a daily basis. Even in Omaha, there are some dangerous areas/jobs.

    Your post is beyond stupid.

    I'm sure it's a different story, when you know that the government is probably rootin' for the cartels.

    This pretty well says it all.

    Law Enforcement Line of Duty Deaths - Officer Down
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    And when you realize that you're hopelessly outmanned, outgunned, and outnumbered. It's like sending a fricking girl scout troop to fight the local army. That only works in Canada.
