Default La mordida and police corruption

Don't forget of the practice known as la mordida and the extent of police corruption. Yesterday Mexico fired 10% of all of their police, and more firings to come, for corruption related to the drug war underway. Many of those fired are expected to join criminal gangs. So, I fear that you will be seeing even more efforts to scam tourists (don't forget of the kidnappings going on everywhere).
