Mexico's Own Crappy Issues With Cops, Even Worse Then Yours [Video]

Submitted by: lalapancakes 9 months ago News & Politics

mexicorape3 A few friends of mine who live in Mexico City were discussing this campaign video to shed some light on how corrupt cops are in Mexico. As disgusting as it can be in the U.S., it's a fucking mess down there. Amnesty International interviewed 100 women who have been arrested in Mexico and their answers reflected rape, molestation, physical abuse, coercion, and torture. When I asked my friends in Mexico City their opinion on the video they said it was accurate. I'm not surprised. I just wanted it to not be true.

“Law enforcement in Mexico is divided between federal, state, and municipal entities. There are two federal police forces, 31 state police forces (and two for the federal district) and one estimate suggests over 1,600 municipal police forces. There are 366 officers per 100,000 people, which equals approximately 500,000 in total, but systemic corruption is endemic and police forces are often poorly trained and underpaid. The average wage of a police officer is $350 per month, around that of a builder's labourer, which means that many police officers supplement their salaries with bribes. As of 2012, Mexico has a police force of over 544,000 people, making it the country with the fourth largest police force in the world, just behind China, India, and the United States.” -- Law Enforcement in Mexico

I live in a third world police state and I can say categorically that we have safer, fairer, and more honest police than the USA.

It's only rape if you say no.

So if a cop takes your daughter - or son - into custody, threatens them, maybe beats them a little, tells them they'll spend years in jail when no crime was committed if they don't cooperate, then fuck them - and they did not say .no because maybe they were, hmmm, whaddayacallit? TERRIFIED, you say that's not rape? Because that is what we're talkin here pal. Abuse, coercion, official oppression, misconduct, criminal behavior by state sanctioned agents. I can only hope your comment was poorly conceived humor or sarcasm.

Rape is about control and control is simply a matter of perspective. If you want that person to have sex with you and agree to it then you effectively take away their control. You know who makes you a victim? You do. Throw away the victim/villain/hero storyline, accept the situation for what it is, and it's not rape anymore. You may have trouble doing this. You may find yourself unwilling to consent for whatever reason. For most people this would be a difficult task, but that doesn't make it any less true.
