I think I’d quit, too

The entire police force of Los Ramones, Mexico resigned last Tuesday. They told their boss “Tome este trabajo y empujarlo!”

Why, you may ask?

Oh, gosh. Maybe it has something to do with criminals blasting 1,000 rounds of ammunition at their new headquarters:

Los Ramones Mayor Santos Salinas said nobody was injured in Monday night’s attack, during which gunmen fired more than 1,000 bullets at the building’s facade, according to Noroeste newspaper’s website. Six grenades, of which three detonated, were also flung at the building, the newspaper reported.

“Fortunately, those who were inside the building threw themselves on the ground and nobody was hurt,” Salinas told the newspaper.

The AP tried to contact the police to get a comment on the story, but, um… no one was answering the phone.

But I’m sure the authorities have the situation well in hand.

    An obvious failure to communicate by the police. Also sounds like Mexico needs stricter gun control laws.

    Sounds like they need the military or national guard with tanks! The border war scares me. It has already spilled into Texas. Couple years ago there was a running gun battle on the highways in Houston between rival drug gangs… With assault weapon machine guns. It is going to continue to get worse if the feds do not get a grip.

    Not to mention the 15 people just gunned down at a car wash who were all patients of a rehab facility today!!

    So how many terrified Mexicans will try to crash our borders at this rate?
