MEXICO CITY – A Mexican police chief was fired Friday following the release of two police training videos that show officers practicing torture techniques, local media reported.
Exactly one day after George Bush signed the first year of the $1.6 billion Plan Mexico into law--giving Mexican military and police US training, armament, and resources--videos surfaced showing Mexican police undergoing torture training in León, Guanajuato. The torture training is directed by a British man from an unidentified US private security company.
Two videos of a torture-training session with the police force of León, Guanajuato shocked the
Mexican public last week and raised serious questions about human rights under the Calderon offensive against organized crime.
