With the slate completely wiped and replaced, hopefully the new contingent can bring forth a better tomorrow.

I couldn't agree more but give'em a year and the narcos will find a way.

If my reading of the BBC item is correct, then they are being re assigned, not sacked.

Given that they are believed to be tainted, then I fail to see why moving them on will change that.

They will just be bent cops in a different location.

I see this as a good thing. It will take some time before the cartels buy back into the police force, but it is a good idea to relocate the existing officers to try to put a strain on the cartels. The police have to stay one step ahead of the cartels.

Nothing really changes, why change the corrupt police in Mexico or any other developing nation if all the corrupt police is still sitting in their jobs in the developed world. As long as all the drugs remain so easily available in the rich nations not much can be done where poverty is still a big issue.

You are assuming, of course, that all 348 are corrupt, which is a big assumption to make. I´m not saying that some of them are, maybe a lot, but it´s not fair to make such an assumption. Besides, believe me, the places they are being reassigned to are not the nice resorts we have.

No, I am not saying that.

If I meant that they are all tainted, then I would say so.

The point is that, they are believed to be tainted, which is why this action is being taken. There is also a PR angle as well of course.

Yeah I doubt that will do any good really, these cartels have so much money and power that probably stuff will be soon flowing as usual...

When looking at what is happening in Mexico problems I saw in Cuba during my visit there start to seem small compared to all this extreme chaos and corruption.

The only hope is that those that are expected of wrong doing, could be put in a job where they have little impact, generally where the brothers and family of a corrupt official usually gets a cushy title and fat paycheck.

There was some one in another thread going on currently here on A.net, I was pointing out how Mexico was not as safe as it used to be, and his reply was along the lines of "This infuriates me" or how we are all mislead about how safe Mexico is.
I'm not bashing him, what I'm saying is everyone has heard or seen something that has formed their best educated opinion.
Since he was from Mexico, maybe I stepped on his national pride, but he pretty much denied Mexico was unsafe anywhere

Unless Finland is a drug free country, the only difference between Mexico and Finland is that corruption is evident in Mexico. It still surprises me that people think the corruption in limited to the production end of the drug chain and that once it leaves Latin America drugs simply and by magic appear in the hands of drug consumers thousands of miles across the world. Just as those drugs pay their way out of Latin America they pay their way into the US, Europe and other rich nations, and just as they do bribing officials here, they bribe officials at US and European airports and ports, they bride US and European police and politicians, they launder their money (as it is now finally in the open) in the largest banks in US and Europe.

So as long as the supply end of the drug chain has to fight a war while the receiving end thinks the drugs are not corrupting their society the problem of violence will simply keep on moving north until it is sitting on their doorstep. Ignoring the reality that US and European societies are lenient to drug users and ignorant about the drug traffic at home the problem will only keep on growing permanently.

I think that you exaggerate matters.

Firstly, the authorities do take action against drug users and the smugglers. I concede that unlike some countries in the Far East, we do not shot/hang smugglers.

Secondly, the struggle between smugglers and the authorities, and amongst each other, is approaching a small scale war in Mexico. AFAIK, it has not reached that scale in Europe.

Finally, I do not underestimate the problem, or that the authorities need to try to keep on top of it.
