Video: Mexican cops suspended for forcing woman to strip

15 officers caught on video forcing young female detainee to strip for freedom

Associated Press

TIJUANA, Mexico — The Mexican border city of Tijuana is suspending 15 local police officers seen on a video forcing a young female detainee to perform a lap dance, purportedly in exchange for not arresting or charging her.

Mayor Carlos Bustamante says the officers are being suspended for immoral behavior and loss of confidence.

The officers had allegedly detained the woman and her boyfriend for drug possession.

They can be seen laughing, joking and touching the woman in a video apparently filmed at a police station and made public by the newspaper El Mexicano.

The officers seen on the tape are in uniform and include three women.

City officials said Tuesday they are still deciding whether to fire or charge them.
