“I’d like a room for me and my rifle.”

Here’s a story about some policia in Jalisco, barging into a hotel and picking up three men who were later found beaten and strangled. The cops have reportedly been arrested, but there’s no further word on their status.

The Jan. 20 video released by prosecutors late Wednesday shows a police truck pulling up to the hotel in the city of Lagos de Moreno, quickly followed by a pickup carrying four armed men in civilian clothing. A city policeman carrying an assault rifle runs over to their truck and is given what appears to be a list. Then he and his fellow officers trot into the hotel and present the list at the reception desk, apparently asking what rooms the men are staying in.

Here’s a link to the story and video in the New York Daily News.

Of course, that could never happen in Juarez. Unless you believe the completely believable story detailed in El Sicario.
