Mexican Navy Takes Over Traffic Police in Top Port City

Authorities say the Mexican Navy has taken over traffic policing duties in the port city of Veracruz, which has been plagued by drug cartel violence.

Veracruz state Gov. Javier Duarte said in a statement Monday that two rear admirals are now the directors of traffic police in the neighboring cities of Veracruz and Boca del Rio.

The move is part of an effort to root out corruption from law enforcement and start from zero in the city of Veracruz.

In December, the police departments in both cities were disbanded and taken over by the Navy. Authorities said the departments had been infiltrated by the Zetas drug cartel. In Mexico traffic police are separate from other police departments.





The Take Over
The take over of the Inter State Traffic Police in Veracruz by the Mexican Marines: The police agency is abolished. Mexican governor said the militarization of the police forces is temporary until the police forces are rebuilt from the ground up.

  4. This represents a major & positive step towards dealing with corruption in Veracruz. Hopefully, in rebuilding the new police units, new policies & professionally trained officers will be created. In addition, all the new officers should be closely screened & monitored for some time.

  5. Fabius Maximus-Mexicos soon to be and last president.
    To every cartel: Your days of living in crimelord paradise are running out, and the decades of real leadership will elect itself throught the votes of the mexxican people. Beware of the Red Fabian Society. A non-violent assault on all those that capable of living in a civil society. Mexico will rise to a new high but ONLY after Calderon is out of the power seat and it's left in the hands of those who aren't afraid to stand up for our land. Just wait Z's your on top of that hit list. Suggest you move your families to the usa where it'll be safe. Until then exxpect to see sheep all around you. Till they have the right time to attack.tthank you. God can't save you fucks now

  6. Many times people have accused our Mexican military of abuses and they will say our military never gets punish. Well today the last U.S. marine on the Haditha killings of 23 people walks free with out jail time. Is this the type of justice you people talk about?

    1. The decision to accept the plea bargain was made by a military judge during ucmj court martial procedures. So it was legal.

  9. A U.S. military judge sentenced a Marine squad leader charged with alleged war crimes in Iraq to a maximum of 90 days in prison and a reduction in pay and rank.

    Meanwhile, Iraqi officials condemned the plea deal for Wuterich, who was facing several manslaughter and other charges. Also, a military law expert said the U.S. military needs to justify the ruling.

    The trial of Wuterich, who pleaded guilty to one count of negligent dereliction of duty, ends a six-year investigation into one of the Iraq war's worst attacks on civilians by U.S. troops. Twenty-four Iraqis died.

    Is this justice or impunity?

  10. There is a book called 'Military Justice is to Justice what Military Music is to Music.' Once again, we see the U.S.'s version of military justice.

    at least some attempt at justice is made in the US. just compare the prosecution rate in Mexico to that of the United States'. you got gangs, often working with corrupt authorites in Mexico commiting atrocities with zero fear of being brought to justice. where is the justice for the scores of dead and missing in Mexico?

    what does Haditha have to do with the the Mexican Navy taking over traffic duties in Veracruz? NOTHING. you're trying to divert attention away from Mexico's much larger problems. if you want to see impunity look within your country.

  14. January 25, 2012 11:52 AM I was under the impression the U.S. was supposed to be an example to us all. But after the Bush Doctrine and the Iraq invasion what else can you expect right. Me Myself and I.

  15. In response to Fabius Maximus suggesting mexicans move to the U.S. until the 'dust settles", are you kidding? Sure, just pack up the wife & kids, load them into the SUV & head north into the USA. No problem crossing into the U.S. RIGHT! Do you know how hard it is for an honest mexican to get any type of u.s. Visa? Oh sure, the wealthy can buy there way, but what about the average mexican? I recently tried to sponsor an average Mexican student from Guadalajara to come to the U.S. to study. His Visa was denied at the U.S. Consulate in Guadalajara. Another person applied for a Visa at the Guadalajara Consulate, slipped $5,000 to the interviewer & was granted a U.S. Visa. Talk about corruption. How many mexicans can afford 5k for each family member to get a Visa? Thats why so many resort to illegal entry into the U.S. They know it is just about impossible to get any kind of U.S. visa.

  17. Im just throwin this outhere but maybe we should set up refugee camps along the boarder and grant some of these people political asylum cause lets face it its complete chaos with death rates compareble to most countrys civil wars

  18. Most will agree that this is a step forward in the ''war'' against the Cartels but lost in the corruption and blood shed is something else, separation of powers. Watching military take over your city and towns is a serious matter. This is how freedoms are lost and military dictators are born. North Korea – De facto since 1994, National Defence Commission of North Korea (proclaimed highest authority in 1998)
    Fiji – since the 2006 Fijian coup d'état; see also 1987 Fijian coups d'état and 2000 Fijian coup d'état.
    Egypt - since the Egyptian Revolution of 2011.
    Just to name a few. So long Mexico.

  19. Traffic police are a joke, everyone knows they work for the zetas as halcones. the entire force should be eliminated. They do not enforce any justice whatsoever, protect no one other than the narcos, and rob normal citizens in the form of 'mordidas' regularly. Their favorite is "falta la banda" (no seat belt) and ask for money. I never give them any, just let them take my license and go to the states and pay $5 for another one. stupid fools...they have no balls, the zetas cut them off a long time ago. bought time the military took over their role.

  20. Great Job. Much props. Start from Zero.

    This mexican military is very strong and determined to win this war. Or at least they are making us believe it.

    I never thought that this war would become so complicated. It is an exercise in insanity.

    But BIG UP to Calderon and his band of soldiers.

    Huh..considering we are talking about Mexico, any other country for that matter would be "a good example!" Maybe you have been living under a rock or maybe your just ignorant! Mexico has to use the military within their own country to keep the peace or the appearance of peace..what does that tell you? Your coming up with some unrelated bullshit about the misconduct of US soldiers in Iraq? And the sad thing is, you probably reside in the U.S. your a fucking bigot and a coward, who knows little about nothing! What a fucking troll!
