MEXICO CITY - Stung by the kidnap-killing of a 14-year-old boy, the Mexico City government on Monday announced a program of anti-crime reforms, including more citizen involvement.

Mayor Marcelo Ebrard announced the city will create a new police investigative agency to replace its old, corruption-ridden detectives' unit.

Mexico City detectives are suspected of having participated in the abduction and killing of 14-year-old Fernando Marti, the son of a prominent businessman. His body was found Aug. 1, and his death has sparked widespread outrage.

Hope it works out.

Wonder how long it will take before that new police agency will be replaced by another new and reformed police agency. I don't have much confidence in their ability to stay corruption free. Some things never change there.
