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
