Drug dragnet lands 27 Cancun (Mexico) police officers behind bars

Houston Chronicle Report: Drug dragnet lands 27 Cancun police officers behind bars

MEXICO CITY - In the latest chapter in Mexico's battle against narco-corruption, federal prosecutors have jailed 27 police officers from Cancun, including some federal agents, on charges including trafficking drugs and murdering other policemen in the tourist resort.

The crackdown, which also targeted state and local officers, suggested that the country's powerful drug cartels have continued to penetrate police organizations along Mexico's Caribbean coast despite an earlier offensive that led to the 2001 narcotics-related arrest of the governor of Quintana Roo state, where Cancun is located.

Among those jailed in the dragnet announced late Monday were the head of the federal attorney general's office in Cancun, Miguel Hernandez; an assistant director of the Cancun police, Felipe de Jesus Arguelles; and Armando Villalobos, the former regional head of the Federal Agency of Investigation, known by its Spanish initials, AFI.

........ ''The Mexicans keep purging police forces and then setting up new ones," said Laurie Freeman, a specialist on Mexico for the Washington Office on Latin America, a nongovernmental organization. ''But they don't get to the root of the problem."

Hard Comment: Remember those commericals after 911, stating that if you do drugs you are supporting the terrorists, well, Bush is guilty of that too, isn't he? Remember last week, those 'Tapes' from his friend, who recorded phone chats with Bush?

This arrest posted above is the tip of the iceberg. All of this 'Homeland Security', you would think by now that an 'added benefit' from all of this 'Security', there would be narcotic cops in the United States with nothing to do because, by stopping Terrorists from entering the country, we also subsequently stopped the flow of Narcotics into this country.
