Good grief. Disturbingly straight talk and a "Hope to see you again," from a world-weary Mike O'Connor. Much of Mexico calls for an end to the "War with the Cartels." It's not working and O'Connor explains why. But he also explains why the police - "too corrupt, inept, or just plain scared" can't take the Army's place.
What's the answer? Who do you train to investigate the stolen bicycle, the raped woman?
