Mexico Police Detain Their Own Commander At Gunpoint

More than 200 federal police agents raided the hotel where their commander was staying and accused him of planting drugs on police officers to blackmail them into carrying out extortion. The commander has been suspended, pending an investigation. Ciudad Juarez is the most violent city in Mexico and corruption is rife. While some agents blocked off nearby streets to prevent their commander from escaping, others moved into the hotel where he was staying. They raided his room, where they say they found weapons and drugs. The federal officers allege that they were part of a stash, which their commander would plant on officers who refused to take part in his corrupt dealings.
