The real crime here is the way this article was written. Kids,here is a perfect example why you should stay in school ...

Do you not employ a proof reader?! It should be an embarrassment that it made it to publication. So many errors that it was difficult to read.

Odd that these narco police would turn around and hire a cartel lawyer to defend them

Who was the author of this article? It is poorly written. As for the officers and deputies charged - I am ashamed to admit that I was born in Hidalgo County, but I am glad that these men are being brought to justice.

When Cops are corrupt, no one is safe.

Such corrupt officers should be punished
