What if the govt said something like "we will NEVER have a checkpoint on Mx57. If you see one, it's the bad guys. Stop and turn around and report it."
Turnabout, if you look carefully at what Reefhound said, he proposed a theoretical
statement from the Mexican government, prefaced by carefully saying "what if". He did not suggest that "checkpoints are narcos" (although certainly false checkpoints [narcoretenes
] have been well documented in both the Mexican and foreign press) and he did not suggest that anyone turn and run.
Reefhound gives clear and accurate news from the Mexico/USA border area. Anyone reading Mexconnect would be well advised to read them closely.
And yes, folks, I'm back. http://www.mexicocooks.typepad.com
