Hello New York times

I hope this news will become interesting to you.

Today the Mexico City's Police Department posted in its twitter an amazing
A brief resume before the news:

"Franeleros" are people that make "little" extorsions everyday to car
owners to "share" parking space in the streets all around Mexico City and
the country. There's an article in Wikipedia about it

And it was amazingly surprising how the Social Communication Office of
Police Department wrote:

"Franeleros are a necesary evil"

and they dare to even put a blog-note referring to such idea.

It's amazing how that "activity" is explicitly forbidden in Federal Laws
(Código Penal Federal) and Civic Laws (Ley de Cultura Cívica del Distrito
Federal) and the Police's chores about it are clear and explicitly

those persons by giving them money"... and clearly giving up to their

I really don't know if this could be a News for you "Internationals"

National Security in risk" or something like to acusse me with anything
they invent in order to relief their anger of being evidenced of their
mediocrity. I hope on God it doesn't happen

P.S. 2. Of course it's anonymous by obvious personal security reasons

Kind regards
