You put your handcuffs on, you take your handcuffs off…

March 9, 2009

Some of you have asked me about that new program down there in Mexico, where nightclubs are being operated by federal government police.

I think the experiment seems to be working, judging from some fresh photos I’ve just seen from nightspots in Ciudad Juarez.

As you can see here, the Federales have organized a lively session of the Hokey Pokey. THOSE dudes are having a GREAT time!

Plus, think of the fun when the Federales ask for your ID at the door.

“ID? We ain’t got no ID! I don’t have to show you any steenking ID!

I lived in Mexico for a couple of years, at Rosarito Beach.

The time I spent there, at night, there were always Federales walking the wall around my house.

I never once had a break in!

Maybe that had to do with the bribes I paid to the Federales every month?

Ya think?

lived in El Paso for two years. Did not lose anything across the border and when friends would come to visit, would not take them over to Juarez. A very scary city with city police warring with state police and state police warring with Federal police and federal police warring with the army. Not a nice place.

Great! Now I got the Macarena tune in my head and it won’t go away. (haha)
