Rogue Mexican police units leave trail of bodies, including U.S. citizens
Take an imperious mayor. Throw in a rogue police unit. Find dead bodies dumped in a remote location. It’s a fatal pattern in Mexico. It happened in Iguala in Guerrero state along the Pacific Coast, where a crooked mayor allegedly ordered police to round up 43 student teachers in late September. They vanished, and authorities now say the police turned them over to gang members who killed and burned them. Street protests over the killings have rocked Mexico, hurting its international image.
