Years ago my brother in law was a passenger in a cab in Mexico City.
The cab was stopped in a stationery queue of vehicles and had been for
some time. A police car came screaming out of a side road and slid
sideways into the cab. Even before the dust had settled a load of
policemen were disgorged from the car and descended on the cab. They
hauled the driver out onto the road and started beating him with
truncheons. They then hauled him away to the police station leaving my
brother in law sitting in the by now imobilised cab.

at least he didn't have to pay the cab fare.

anyway, what did the cabbie do to warrant being beaten, other than sit
in traffic?

He collided with the police car.

not if he was sitting in traffic, he didn't.


It sounds like the cop hit the cab, and then beat the crap out of the driver
for having the audacity to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.


in other words, it wasn't 'collided with police car' but rather
'corrupt cops'


Perhaps I should have used a /sarc.

Was he black as well as that would be an obvious sign of guilt.


No, it was a much more prevalant form of corruption, and violence. It was
Mexican-on-Mexican violence, in Mexico.
