Last week, Sánchez also told the quasi-official Notimex news agency that police no longer would put suspected gangsters on display in "perp walks" before banks of television cameras.

Nor would authorities post "most-wanted" lists, allow news media to air raids in action or refer to gangsters by aliases, acts that critics said glorified the underworld.



They're also going to stop showing closeups of suspects while playing dramatic organ music.

And no more 'duh-duh' sounds whenever the cameras switch from showing detectives to showing prosecutors.
And putting on glasses right before bad puns is now strictly verboten.

US should just conquer all the territory down to the Panama Canal, send in the military to round up and destroy all the resistance, just to keep the boys in fighting shape

Doesn't matter what they do as long as the US allows gun shipments to Mexico because of our lax gun laws.

They will fight each other with knives and maces as long as the US keeps up the drug war.

Seeing as law US gun laws cause crime; shouldn't there be millions of Canadians dead from guns smuggled in from the US?
