#1 Mexico announces anti-kidnapping reforms08-12-2008, 02:18 AM
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.
