How Are Things South of the Border?

Headline: "Extraordinary moment Mexico arrests town's ENTIRE police force of 28 officers 'over murder of a mayoral candidate' amid country's bloodiest election campaign."

120 candidates have been murdered since September. This one was a rather extraordinary moment -- the assassin just walked up and shot him in the back of the head, and then walked freely away. But it's only one of three such murders in the last week or so.

It is a positive development that cops got arrested.

The polls say that far lefty AMLO is going to win. I wonder how he will deal with police corruption. AMLO didn't appear to have any problems with police corruption when he was a PRI honcho.

The murdered candidate was the young brother of a guy who runs the center for the arts in my little town.
