Just like Dubai: Mercedes Benz patrol cars in Apatzingan

El Diario de Coahuila (8-26-2014)

Translated by un vato for Borderland Beat

Thanks to Pepe for the photos...
Just so we know we're getting into the big leagues, the former mayor of Tepalcatepec, Guillermo Valencia, gave us a glimpse of the police patrol units that are circulating around in his home town; Mercedes Benz models, no less.

Hearing rumors about the transportation that Fuerza Rural [Castillo's rural police] police are using in Apatzingan, the incredulous Valencia asked social network users to send him photographs as proof... and seeing such marvelous images, the deposed mayor could only think to compare the Michoacan city with Dubai... and how can you avoid the comparison, when it's only in those countries, where it seems that money flows - in some places--, that they have the luxury of using sports cars for public safety.

"It's one of the richest and most modern cities cities in the world. Proof of that is that its police force has  a fleet of patrol vehicles that includes Lamborghini sports cars... In Apatzingan, Michoacan, they don't hold back, and the new Rural Police Forces also have them, but they use Mercedes Benz sports cars," Valencia said with irony.
But in the Michoacan municipality, they do things backwards; before transforming their city into a business focal point, they first create the appearance, and the new patrol vehicles are a sign of the growth that the region will have. They even give hope to those families that live in poverty, the former mayor points out. 

But, well, not everything is luxury. While the Fuerza Rural drives all terrain BMW X5s, worth approximately one million pesos ($77,000.00), members of the new National Gendarmerie have to make do with Jeeps that cost about 450,000 pesos (approx. $35,000.00)

"The new police forces created by Commissioner Alfredo Castillo seem to be at the Viceroy's level of opulence, who, as a government official, earns more than the President of the Republic, since he (Castillo) receives a monthly salary of $194,000. plus benefits.  This police force surpasses the privileged police forces of economic and petroleum superpowers like the police from the Arab Emirate of Dubai. I wonder if President Pena Nieto knows that his envoy's police force has more privileges than the federal government's new security force?" asks Valencia.

It's well and good that the authorities should be well equipped... but that well? And should they give themselves those luxuries?

  7. I suspect these vehicles are not bought , but are vehicles confiscated from CT and then re painted and used as patrol vehicles. Even that would be left field. Better to auction them off , then use the money to put back into the state to improve basic services.

  14. So where is the guy that blames the US for everything? Go ahead and chime in and tell us readers why the US is at fault for this police force misusing funds. Why the US is at fault for the people in this area living in poverty while the police splurge on patrol vehicles. Go ahead I want to hear your rationale....

    2. @704 damn dude you really sit around and wait for that person to make comments? That's pretty fucking sad. Here's one for the meantime: Um, if you think Mexico being as fucked up as it is politically and economically AND being this close to the US is a coincidence, you're not as bright as you think you are. That or you're living in fantasy land where dope just appears by magic on the streets of the US, and where the people really running the US rape the shit out of Mexico's economy. Mexican politicians, I. E. not Mexican citizens, are more to blame than anything.

    3. Point made but really not very well. Anyway you basically fell into my trap hook, line and sinker. Whether you are the douche that decries negativity about the US or not it really doesn't matter. My point is that I really don't give a shit about the blame game. What I do care about is reading info on the "drug in war in Mexico" and not "I got vaginitis and it's the US's fault". And trust me I am brighter than think. This web page is about "informing" the readers and not blaming the gringos every chance you get. Personally I live in the real world making real world money so I don't have to fantasize. I do and always will find the time to defend my country. With that said tell me how you really feel.

    4. @9:31a LOL!!! Don't be jealous or envious. God has a purpose for us all.....Your purpose is to be another douche like 10:18p while my purpose is to instigate and stir the pot. Also who cares about Putin 9:20p Russia has nothing the US wants end of story. Russia flexes it's muscles every few years to act as if they are still relevant as a military power. If something broke off between the US and Russia Mexico would get pulled into it also.

    5. @1008 hahaha you defend your country every chance you get.... Ok, and exactly what branch did you serve in... fucking none. I'm done with you, you're even worse than I thought. I figured that person you're saying always has the panty wads for the US was pretty bad but you're worse if you're that much of a fucking corny ass Internet commando. All I know is Mexico needs to handle it's own shit but with such "help" from the US, it will never get out of this drug war hole that's sinking it lower and lower.

    7. 10:32 sorry you feel that way. Don't get so excited. I'm just being a asshole no disrespect to you or Mexico intended. I was just trying to push your buttons. Just like you defend your country I defend mine. Believe it or not you and I are one of the same. We are both passionate for our homeland and we would defend it to the day we die. No hard feelings.

    2. Check the record, the US first put corruption in motion by removing elected leaders and placing corrupted sympathizers in control. With a little military training with help from "ex" Nazis. But that's not the first time we see this type of behavior is it?

    4. @3:25p except For Costa Rica, Panama and Colombia. Why go to Mexico when you can go to Costa Rica or Panama where you are 10 times safer as a tourist. Look at Colombia and especially look at their soccer program with US's help. Soccer was next to dead after Pablo Escobar in Colombia. The Colombian government worked side by side with the US to reduce the drug violence and corruption. Imagine what could happen in Mexico if the Mexican government had the same commitment as Colombia.

    8. Money talks and teaches. How else is there funding for soccer. There was no money for the Colombian soccer program after Pablo Escobar and the other cartels were decimated. I know it will hurt some of you to admit the funding from the US helped the state of Colombian soccer. But who really cares big brother always helps those that want to be helped. Hence is why certain countries are in the state they are in right now (hint hint Mexico).

  30. Yet again I would offer that they are confiscated vehicles from the caballero templarios. All the narco cars are armoured. If you are a Fuerza Ruarales , and had the choice between a standard unarmoured police pick up , or an air conditioned armoured mercedes , Id take the Mercedes , especially if I didnt have to buy it in the first place.
    Its actually not a bad idea , using the proceeds of crime to fight crime , but no chance of that with the FR , better these vehicles went to the AD to use as patrol cars.

Chinese knock-offs, mexico has been making volkswagens for 100 years, and mercedes are about just the same, one thing is for sure, they did not find those cars just lying abandoned on the street, like ISIS, they found all their trucks, weapons, tanks, etc all lying on the desert, abandoned by the US by mistake, yeah yeah...

    1. 6:20 you might want to check the stats on who won wars and what makes a winner of a war. Vietnam is the only major war that can be questioned on whether there was a winner or not. In Vietnam 58,000 Americans died but 1.1 million North Vietnamese/Viet Cong died. It's obvious who lost the numbers game. The war on terror has only 6700 American casualties versus several hundreds thousands of Taliban, Iraqi and insurgents dead. Again who won the numbers game?

    1. All Russia has is blood and if the US wants it we will take it. We are the devil's seed and we want your souls to sacrifice. I really think that the US made Eve take a bite of the fruit from the forbidden tree. The US caused the dinosaurs to disappear millions of years ago. The US crucified Jesus Christ and we also created Hitler and the Holocaust. What else did we do??? Give me some more ideas. We as a nation are very strong and we can take any blame for whatever bullshit anyone wants to blame us for. The US government has done some despicable things throughout history but what country hasn't. It's human nature to destroy things you don't understand. Are we Americans held to a higher standard than the rest of the world? If we are then why. Just because we are an easy target? I am a Democrat and it would be very interesting if a republican wins the presidency in 2016. They may just build that wall between the US and Mexico that they are threatening they will build. Just think what will happen in Mexico if that occurs. And of course it will be the US's fault. Go figure!!!
