A couple of years ago I read where the police were renting out their uniforms to bring in a few extra bucks, and not caring too much about who the renters were.
It looks like they cut out the middleman.
Thanks for the update! That may well have been this case.
a beeg one
I hope that no one thinks that this is an unusual event. Maybe we don’t hear about it so much since the Mexican authorities allowed all those American style resorts and condos to be built in Baja, but this used to be an every day experience for tourists who strayed off the beaten path in Baja.
It’s really a shame because Mexico has some beautiful coasts, wonderful beaches, and world-class waves for surfing. I haven’t been back in over five years.
Detroiters got to Toledo on vacation........
I remember that name from a Cheech & Chong album. There’s a variety of weed named after it. Somewhere between Acapulco Gold and Toledo Windowbox in quality.
I have been to Mexico. Once. Only for a day trip just over the border. And that once was enough.
It's beyond me why anyone would want to 'vacation' in Mexico.
Detroit, where the weak are killed and eaten”....
wasn’t there a movie that had that as its subtitle?
I stopped going down there almost 15 years ago.
It’s a third-world country that views gringos as prey.
The old days of going down there and getting ‘drunk and disorderly’ have long been over.
There’s lots of places to go right here in the ‘good old US of A’ that don’t have the risk associated with a night out in Messico.
Screw that sh!thole place.
I came across a letter from a deceased relative who traveled to Mexico in 1941. He made it sound like a beautiful country. Maybe it was a little safer at that time.
Go to Viet Nam and stay out of Sai Gon. Hundreds and hundreds of miles of beautiful beaches. They love Americans and the worst sex situations you will run into are the mamas trying to talk you into marrying their daughters.
So sad. My favorite restaraunt in the world is La Mansion in Reynose. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted.
reminds me of a song from the 60’s from Jay And The Americanos “and I heard someone say” “Jose’s on his way” “your in trouble Plenty”
Baja is so beautiful. Desert meeting the ocean. I’d love to drive all the way to Cabo if it was safe. I wish it was part of the USA. Wish we could swap the Bay area and LA for Baja.
It was a similar one. I read about another person from Texas who was caught with ammo in his vehicle in Mexico, and was waiting on the outcome of this case. Could be your guy!
Surfer’s Baja tale is warning to others”
A lot of people got the warning two years ago.
There's no need to go, especially when half of Mexico is already here!
Ping—Hey Guenevere—check this out. Very similar to what happened to your neighbor’s son and his girlfriend.
Music to read this thread by...
LOL! WiseOldPro. You can't surf crime waves.
“Weber said the group hug, his term for the event, will help heal his mental and emotional wounds”
His wounds? What about his girlfriend...he does not mention her horrible experience...
My, my - a Statist like you is advocating illegally taking a firearm into a foreign nation? What is the world coming too?
Thats a really bad idea. The federal thugs down there set up roadblocks and search vehicles for weapons.
After being stopped at one of these checkpoints back in 95, I saw the writing was on the wall. Ive never gone back.
Thats what Id suggest - just stay out of Mehico all together. If they want gringo tourist dollars, let them clean up their socialist criminal cesspool.
Mexico has very strict gun control. A caller to Dennis Prager’s show said that Mexico has always been problematic, but back in the 50s and 60s it was at least livable. Then gun control came and now the citizens are helpless against the Mexican Mafia, the Federales, the local police, drug and gun smugglers, etc.
I’ve heard the same thing about Venezuela, and look how insane that country is now. I would never go to a foreign country except Canada or Costa Rica. It’s not worth the risk.
The surfer guy in the story said he’s not going back to Mexico, but he’d better locate the slug in the trailer if he changes his mind. The Federales will find it and charge him with a felony.
North American Union? Anyone?

That’s what I figured. I’ve talked to a young Mexican professional here in the US who described the towns along the drug routes in Mexico that are run by gangsters.
When I told him that they would have to get that under control, he said, “Good luck.” He’s powerless, but more importantly, just accepts it.
I wish we had taken Baja as part of the US when Mexico nearly defaulted on their debt back in the 90s. It would have been a lot of work to convert it to our laws and civilization, but worth it, I’d think. It’s too nice a place to be in Mexico.
Very strange indeed!
