How Obama’s expansion of Bush’s “war on drugs” under Plan Mexico and CARCI is predictably increasing corruption at the highest levels of Mexican (and Latin American) civil administration/government, police and military.

Quote from piece: Espinosa and Vera, like many people throughout Mexico these days, would have feared turning to the police for protection because of the possibility that law enforcement would be complicit with organized crime.
