* About 90 percent of crimes in Mexico never reported….

MEXICO CITY, Sept 20 (Reuters) - About 90 percent of Mexican victims of common crime last year never contacted police, citing bureaucratic delays and general mistrust of legal authorities who solve few cases, a study by Mexico's national statistics agency found. [N.S.: This is comparable to our National Crime Victimization Study (NCVS), which is more reliable than stats from local police departments in America, who are notorious for cooking the books.]

Victims who went to the trouble of reporting crimes like robbery, extortion, car theft and break-ins to prosecutors faced a 35 percent chance there would be no investigation of their cases, the report released on Tuesday said.

The independent statistics agency, known as Inegi, surveyed over 78,000 households across Mexico last year and found 15 percent of victims of unreported crimes said they had no faith in the authorities.

More than 33 percent said filing a complaint was too time-consuming, while more than 6 percent said they were discouraged by the hostile attitude of the police.

The tally did not include crimes associated with Mexico's drug violence and left out figures about drug trafficking, weapons possession and money laundering. With more than 42,000 drug-related murders since President Felipe Calderon launched a frontal attack on cartels at the beginning of his term in late 2006, Mexicans are increasingly worried about the security situation….

Among Mexican adults, 24 percent were victims of common crime in 2010, which the statistics agency said was roughly in line with recent figures from England and Wales that pointed to a 21.5 percent victim rate among those 16 and older and a 27 percent rate among people 15 and older in Canada.

Note that the once virtually crime-free nations of England and Canada are now in one case almost as crime-ridden, and in another moreso than Mexico.

And contrast the ridiculous hearts-and-minds policy (or perhaps more accurately, talking points) of sanctuary city police departments, like L.A., with its S.O. 40, violating federal law (please stop laughing so hard, you’ll bust a gut!), forbidding policemen from asking suspects or people who appear to be illegal human beings their immigration status. Such policies merely cede sovereignty over “barrios” to illegal alien criminal gangs, and to business as usual, south-of-the-border-style.

Nah, can’t be. Forget what I just said. As everyone knows, diversity makes everything better. That’s the absolute truth … in a little place that denies the existence of absolute truth called … The Diversity Zone.
