What happens to your stolen car?

We hear all these stories about stolen cars (really mainly SUVs) in the U.S. ending up in Mexico. And what happens to them? Well, in one case at least, a stolen Durango with no plates was used in a kidnapping carried out by a Mexican law officer (FBI equivalent) in the border state of Tamaulipas.

According to the same article:
Por otra parte, ayer sólo se documentaron dos muertes violentas en el país: una en Veracruz y otra en el penal Neza Bordo, ubicado en el estado de México. Más activos estuvieron diversos actores políticos, al menos en cuanto a emitir declaraciones sobre la violencia en el país.

"On the other hand, yesterday only two violent deaths were reported in the country: one in Veracruz and another in the Neza Bordo prison, located in the state of Mexico. More active were the diverse political actors, at least in terms of issuing declarations regarding violence in the country."

Someone at La Jornada has a sense of humor.

Another article mentions that 41 local police were arraigned yesterday on charges that they participated in a gunfight with officers of Mexico's FBI-equivalent agency. That's nice.
