Mexico Government Sees Children As a Danger to Mexcio

DD: Drug lords can walk the streets of the cities in Mexico with impunity.  Caravans of 40 or 50 vehicles carrying sicarios and other cartel members can travel the highways (even though all those eyes in the sky can see them ad report on their routes) with impunity.  Corrupt politicians and union leaders can steal from the treasury and extort their constituents and continue to buy muti-million dollar homes and yachts and nothing is done.  

But in the name of public safety, the government will go to incredible lengths to insure the public safety from “terrorist”.

Translated by Reed Brundage for Mexico Voices

Something sinister dwells in the minds of those who govern Mexico when, on the main national holiday, they have the hands of police insult the bodies of children under the guise of public safety

And something is very broken, too, that--except for marginal comments among 120 million Mexicans--society consents, dismisses and even justifies such aggression against the most sacred thing a people have: their children

The police groping of children and babies in the Zocalo [Mexico City's central plaza] on the night of the Shout of Independence, is not a random or isolated act, but an order coming from the government of Enrique Peña Nieto that has come to stay.

The message of Monte Alejandro Rubido, head of federal public security, and Roberto Campa Cifrián, Undersecretary of Government Relations, is unequivocal: What was done--the insult to the children--was well done.

This "yeah, so what" is the language of intolerance of those in power, the maxim that governs the conduct of those who know they go unpunished. And following this path, Mexico will only walk into the abyss.

 When to the daily violence, cynical corruption and impunity at all levels are joined the hands of police violating the bodies of children and babies, by order of those in power, barbarism is installed in Mexico, to the shame of everyone.

  5. Pretty disgusting. I live here in Mexico and they do things that make it look like they are trying to impress the people. In reality they look like fools. They think the people are gullible. Maybe they are to an extent. If they wanted to do that to my child I would have turned around and left. Only in Mexico. I do not think that child have been carrying a weapon.

  8. I'm assuming the police believe parents are hiding drugs and guns on their children. Not to make light of the situation but I don't think it's the children they should be worried about. Children don't know how to use guns and smuggle drugs. If the police were really concerned they would station police officers at the schools and the roads where children walk to school. That way they can reduce the abductions of the youth by the cartels who force them into working for them. It makes no sense what they are doing or trying to achieve.

  9. Stupid cop! If only he would have looked in the baby stroller out of sight in the picture, the child terrorist had the RPG hidden under her nap blanket and the grenades where actually her innocent looking formula bottle. Like that little child could lug around a pistol or machine gun. I am sick and tired of the Mexican govt pretending they are doing something when the narcos are the ones pulling their puppet strings and in total control.

  15. Yes, they like to go the easiest and safest way. On the other side I won't be amazed if the narcos rig up children with suicide bomb stuff.

  16. "Are you saying we don't love our children?"

    How can you say something so imbecilic?You are part of the problem,its about political impunity and public apathy.And its precisely because we do love our children that we shouldn't have to deal with strangers putting their hands on our children under the guise of some spurious political nonsense.. Absolutely mind boggling that's the only question you ask?

  17. Not much different here in the U.S.;
    Violations of civil rights in the name of safety;
    In the name of fighting the war on terror and the war on drugs.
    I think WE wrote the book on Government excuses to "assure" the safety of the people.

    1. You are really going compare frisking toddlers in Mexico to wiretapping terrorist in the US. Tell me what civil rights the US government has taken from you. If you have never had one of your civil rights violated then you no place to talk.

  18. Does it surprise us that some policemen actually enforce this disgusting show of political idiocy?It shouldn't,the cry of"just doing my job"can be heard all over the world by civil servants who would enforce almost anything if ordered.More slight of hand by political non-entities.THE ARROGANCE OF MEXICO'S ELITE KNOWS NO BOUNDS.They treat the people with abject indifference which is very disturbing,almost psychopathic indifference?

  24. 10:33 "obama" did not invent searches, but friend and foe should be checking each other's bloomers.
    In the US i have seen people reach for the nickel or a dimes inside kids pampers, they take them to the sto' all the time to deliver etc etc etc, and sometimes hide guns in there too...
    --please note that i am not in favor of the priista or panista mexican government, just getting real...

  25. How can you search that little one?
    Fuckin idiots for enforcing this crap.
    Never mind real police work,search little toddlers?

  26. It is sad that Mexico has come this point. I'm sure Mexican cops are not enjoying this either but they have their orders and they are searching kids in front of the parent in a "respectfull" manner even though the whole act is disrespectful in itself. I don't like it but I do think it's needed in Mexico if there's been some history of drugs or small guns being hidden on toddler's clothes. Baby mules? Why not? G
