Uh huh. People breaking the law are loathe to admit guilt. Much easier to claim the police are corrupt. May I suggest you start obeying the law and you won't get 'shook down'?Please feel free to spin it as you see fit...we have been stopped 3 different times and shook down for doing the same speed.
So the American cops are all corrupt and bad too? I thought we were only demonizing the Mexican police on this thread?Our son went back to Phx today, at 10am had a 15 minute wait, he saw 2 Sonoyta police cars sitting off the road.
He got a thorough check by the CBP agents. He said there was a heavy Park ranger, Sheriff presence all the way
to Why and Sheriff's to Ajo. He thought they were baiting people by riding on their bumpers
We have heard this so many times before for 33+ years. Nothing will actually ever change. Same old BS , I'm sure.So via a connection with a Penasco developer I had the chance to talk to Chief Trujillo today. He seems very sincere in trying to clean things up in Sonoyta. Only time will tell how successful he is, but I believe the guy is truly trying.
Not sure if I will be VOICING my opinion any longer on anything Sonoyta related... my apologies to the don.
The U.N. Human Rights agency on Saturday condemned the killing this week of an online journalist in Mexico’s northern border state of Sonora. Benjamín Morales Hernández ran an online community news site called Noticias Xonoidag. On the site he covered local community events in the border town...www.yahoo.com
I don't think anyone read it because nobody commented on why I posted it. When shit is happening to journalists in Sonoyta, it's certainly possible for it to happen to ANYONE that gets out of line. YO SE MI LUGAR y yo seguire en la lina... The only other thing I will say is that I almost felt that "the men" that were asking us if we wanted to go to the front of the line were getting progressively more frustrated with me every time I said no thank you. There was clearly a "supervisor" that was there watching the low level gentlemen ask each car if they wanted to go. Not sure why but he insisted on hanging out next to us as the line crept forward. I bet we turned down 4 or 5 propositions to contribute to the "cause". Not the cause I'm looking to donate to unfortunately and with respect of course. Every answer was, "no thank you" but the "pit boss" pulled up along side of the passenger window after being next to us for about 20 minutes and we had to tell him personally, "no thank you" and he was visibly frustrated as he shook his head no and then finally pulled away. It was unnerving to say the least. It was like we had a big target on our vehicle because of the jet ski or something??? I don't know but to think there were more than a few CHIVO DE CUERNOS around us in those "businessmen's" cars I was starting to think that the answer should have been YES just to keep them happy. It's one of those things, like when you were young and your Italian grandfather that grew up through the 30's depression said, "eat all of your food" he wasn't asking and "no" or not eating everything on your plate wasn't an option...As a former political journalist here in Tucson, this incident chills me to the bone. Especially the timing.
