Mexican Police arrested in AZ..

And what were they doing? Buying guns:

ABC News

"3 high-ranking Mexican officers arrested at Phoenix gun show
Last Update: 9/12 9:16 am
Three high-ranking Mexican police officers were arrested over the weekend for buying weapons at a gun show in Phoenix in violation of a law barring non-citizens from purchasing firearms, a federal official said Wednesday.

The three include the director of the Baja California Sur state police and a commander of the federal police in Baja California, said Tom Mangan, a spokesman with the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives in Phoenix....

Mangan said Mexican officials have been pressuring U.S. officials to cut off the supply of weapons going south."

I guess we've pushed guns on them so much that the brain altering waves are taking effect. We need to shut down gun shows to protect Mexican police from themselves.

Thanks to Michael S. for the link

Some Mexican officers are only issued poor weapons, if they get any fireamrs at all (
No wonder they're buying some themselves.
