ZACATECAS, Mexico (Reuters) - Suspected members of a Mexican drug cartel disguised as federal police swept into a prison in the northern state of Zacatecas on Saturday and freed 53 inmates, police and army officials said.
The early-morning jailbreak, which took less than five minutes and involved no violence, was carried out by 20 heavily armed men who arrived in 10 vehicles and a helicopter, they said.
All of the escaped prisoners are believed to be members of the armed wing of Mexico's Gulf Cartel, one of the country's most powerful criminal organizations.
I mean, you just can't make this shit up... unless your Robert Rodriguez, of course.
It sure looks like the Mexican government is losing its battle against the "drug gangs" and as a southern California resident, I'm looking forward to quieter times in Mexico.
