Police violence rocks the Mexican/U.S. border On June 8 the police chief of Nuevo Laredo, a Mexican city just across the border from Laredo, Texas, was shot to death after only 9 hours on the job.

Federal and local police clash in this "lawless city" as both claim to be doing their best to fight the drug cartels, known to execute and bribe officers with impunity.
