MONTERREY, Mexico Imprisoned members of the hyper-violent Zetas drug cartel stabbed and bludgeoned 44 members of the rival Gulf cartel to death and then staged a mass escape, apparently with the help of prison authorities, officials in northern Mexico said Monday.
Rodrigo Medina, governor of the northern state of Nuevo Leon, said the prison's director and three other officials have been fired and are under investigation for purportedly helping in the escape. The same was done with 18 prison guards.

It's becoming possible to simply write stock text, then take it off the shelf when needed, whether for Mexican prison breakouts or Fast and Furious hearings.

It sounds like somebody executed 44 of themMexico doesn’t have a Government. Like Chicago doesn’t have a Government.
Just corrupt thieves & killers that are part of the Government.
How did the prison’s director of all people think they could get away with this?
It's "plato o plomo" my friend. That's how.
Oh, I get that.
It is just that with the amount of graft a prison director could take that even though he makes $6.00 a week he probably had a sack of cash tucked away to flee with if this circumstance arose.
