Mexico suspends entire police force amid drug claims:

"A Mexican Governor has suspended an entire state police force - all 553 members - after two senior officers were accused of cutting deals with powerful drug traffickers."

Looks like this governor is taking a slightly different course of action than his predecessor. The last governor of this state was kicked out of office for involvement in a kidnapping ring headed up by his "Anti-kidnapping Tsar" (click here for that story). And if this intrigues or scares you, you've got to read this incredible BBC article from April 15th, 2004.
