Mexico Town’s Police Force after Attack: We Quit

From the article:

The entire police force of a small northern Mexican town has quit after gunmen attacked their headquarters.
Los Ramones Mayor Santos Salinas says nobody was injured.
But he told Reforma newspaper that all 14 members of the force resigned Tuesday, a day after the shooting.
Nobody answered the phones at Salinas’ offices.
Los Ramones is in Nuevo Leon, a state torn by fighting between the Gulf and Zetas drug gangs. Police stations in small northeastern Mexican towns are frequently attacked, and several mayors have been assassinated.
Mexico’s ill-equipped municipal forces often quit after cartel attacks.
President Felipe Calderon has proposed eliminating Mexico’s municipal forces and replacing them with one force per state.
Meanwhile, the bodies of two men, one of them decapitated, were found in a Mexican border city Tuesday, and police suspect they may have been behind the massacre of 14 young people at a birthday party.

Mexico is falling apart very quickly, it really needs help from it’s neighbors.

But that will probably not happen until it’s to late.
