  1. Seems like the army members were just partying and got out of hand. I’m sure it happens everywhere. Now the story of the people murdered should have been on separate story as this only taints the partygoers.

    1. You have a valid point and I almost did it that way, except that I was chasing down so many rabbit holes on the other miscellaneous murders I decided to run it together with the two major events. Also the dichotomy of adding all those cops, big military presence and what changed ? Nothing, sadly.

    2. In Colombia the government sponsored assassin were members of the army and earned days off work and vacations and bonuses for murdering their victims also called "Falsos Positivos" in encounters of war against drug traffickers and guerrillas the government forces later dressed in guerrilla fatigues.
      Pissing on the street and sidewalks is a normal Mexican activity specially done by military having fun after robbing a bank to party off their vacation...
      --"Military Police" getting arrested by a bunch of municipal hayseeds is unbelievable, that they did not get murdered is a miracle.

  2. Guys urinating should be the least of their concerns.

  3. Everything seems to be under control,,glad these guys are here to serve and protect......

  4. After the Cartels have totally ruined tourist safety in Cancun like they did to Acapulco then maybe they will deploy all Navy or Marines? As an American i worked there for 6 weeks for the US after graduation vacations. I talked with one of the local dealers in a Tattoo Shop, he freely told me the paid 2000$ US to keep the local police from messing with them. Obviously the Police are in the cartel pockets

    1. 9:42 OBVIOUSLY, THERE IS NO CARTEL pissing, arresting or getting arrested on this case, I red this report 6 times to make sure, try it yerself, and any street vendor that has 2 000.00 dollars better get out of town and start a life somewhere else instead of giving it to the facing police. Cancún sucks by the way.
