    Farewell to arms: Tijuana cops now using slingshots

    January 24, 2007

    TIJUANA, Mexico -- The police department has issued slingshots and balls to officers in the violent border city of Tijuana, where soldiers confiscated police weapons on allegations of collusion with drug traffickers.

    Sixty slingshots, along with bags of ballbearings, were given to officers patrolling tourist areas.

    Tijuana's police force of 2,000 officers has been without guns since Jan. 5, but some patrol alongside armed state police.

    President Felipe Calderon sent 3,300 soldiers and federal police to Tijuana at the beginning of January to hunt down drug gangs. The soldiers took officers' guns for inspection amid allegations that a network of officers supports smugglers who traffic drugs into the U.S.

    About 100 police demonstrated this week demanding the return of their guns. ''The arms are our tools for work,'' said officer Juan Manuel Nieves.

    Balls

    Sounds like the president of Mexico wants to make sure that local Law Enforcement doesn't interfere with HIS drug trade.
