Surveillance video and witness statements indicate officers struck victim
updated 6:11 a.m. ET, Tues., Sept. 2, 2008

CABO SAN LUCAS, Mexico - Six Mexican officers have been placed under house arrest on suspicion of homicide after an American man died while in police custody in the resort city of San Jose del Cabo, a prosecutor said Monday.

Baja California Sur state deputy prosecutor Omar Barajas said the officers were placed under house arrest Sunday while authorities investigate whether they played a role in the death. He identified the victim as a 38-year-old man from Oregon, but the U.S. Embassy could not confirm his name or hometown.

The man was arrested Wednesday after he was involved in a fight at an apartment complex and died in jail hours later, Barajas said.

A medical examiner recorded minor bruises on the man's face at the time of his arrest, but more were found on his body after his death, the prosecutor said.

Barajas said the police officers gave contradictory statements about the man's incarceration. One confessed to kicking him in the face. Others said the victim hit his face on the ground when they pushed him to the floor to subdue him.

Surveillance video and witness statements indicate that officers struck the victim, Barajas said.

I'd say that a declaration of war against this cesspool is long past due.

We arrest them in the US and treat them like they are going into a daycare center. We patch them up in the hospital, at our expense, only send them home when they are fully recovered or we have a destination hospital in Mexico that will take them. I am tired of being such a good neighbor. I think it is time to take back our homeland folks. We can start by writing and flooding our representitives with emails and phone calls. Sign up with ALPAC, they will send you faxes to send.

maybe you should join the HRC, and make sure all prisoners thru out the world are treated fairly. if it is important enough to make a thread of.

or is it that you just really really hate mexico?

Agreed. The more I read, the more I think a declaration of war is the best way to rid ourselves of this burden once and for all.

As much as I can't stand Mexico's double standard, I'd have to have more information.
What kind of American was this? One of those "duals" who was back in his other country but tries to use the "dual" to have the best of both and avoid consequences by becoming American as needed?

Or was he one of those stupid Americans who doesn't realize that Mexico is a whole different country with it's own laws? Was he there making drug deals? A pedophile? Not all Americans are innocent, and I'd have to know what he was doing over there in the first place.
