Note: more of this being seen. In the event of significant
spillover, which is looking more inevitable, have to wonder if the
BP, DPS, & deputies have plans or resources to deal with these up
armored vehicles. .

To Fight Police Corruption, One Mexican State Starts from Scratch

Fuerza Civil Police Academy Training
In an effort to combat corruption, and to lessen the reach of the
powerful Mexican drug cartels, the Mexican state of Nuevo Leon has
started an innovative, and unique police force; called the Fuerza Civil.

If you plan on taking a hunting or fishing vacation in Mexico this
year you may have some company... armed guards are now used by many
lodges to keep clients safe from run-ins with the drug cartels.
Prime dove, deer and bass fishing areas near the US border are also
battle zones in Mexico's drug war, forcing more than 250 hunting
lodges to shut down and threatening the country's tourism industry.
Hector Aguilar, who runs Big Bass Hunting & Fishing in Mexico's
Tamaulipas State, says they have lost about 95 percent of their
"People from the States used to come here a lot," said Aguilar. "That
was our main target market and then just because of bad media it
dropped and here we are."
The Mexican government has been aggressive in taking the fight to the
drug cartels A five year battle has left 43,000 dead and exposed
Mexico's police force as complicit. An entirely new force, the Civil
Guard, is being formed to fight the cartels.
Mexican officials say they are aware that citizens have lost
confidence in local law enforcement.
"The people have to trust these new guys that we are putting in the
streets," said Jorge Domene, a Mexican Federal Security official,
"but the only way we are going to regain their trust is through
achieving results on the streets.
The new cadets train with rubber knives and empty pistols. More
advanced students practice urban assault tactics with live ammunition.
Ethics are given equal billing with weapons training. One instructor
holds a Mexican 100 Peso note in front of twenty cadets at attention,
shouting at them about the perils of bribery. The cadets shout back
the response, "We will never lose our worth!"
Corruption in Mexican law enforcement until now has been endemic. The
average police officer earns roughly $600 a month. The new Civil
Guard recruits will earn three times that salary, along with housing
and insurance benefits that officials help will prevent the new force
from working with, instead of fighting, the cartels.
