México: Peña Nieto Fails to Deliver on Substantive Change Re: Restoring Confidence in Law Enforcement

According to the below link from The Los Angeles Times, please see Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto comments regarding the upgrading of law enforcement agencies in México:

COMMENT: President Enrique Peña Nieto offered few substantive solutions to how México's law enforcement infrastructure can address corruption at the federal level as if federal corrupt practices are non-existent.

The very fact that the president failed to address federal corruption conveyed an undertone of presumptive ignorance, incompetence, lack of sincerity and avoidance of  the clear realities facing all Mexican citizens, who expect far more than they are getting from what is a corrupt nation.

The Mexican President had an opportunity to restore confidence amongst Mexicans, and failed miserably in his effort to deliver. Like so many things in life, we are often given one opportunity to correct the past failings. 

In this regard, President Enrique Peña Nieto "blew it."

The President's ten-point plan offered few details as to how the Mexican federal government can restore public confidence in prevailing law enforcement agencies which by and large contribute to what is seemingly a lawless nation with little to no ethical credibility.

Most of the elements of the President's plan were cosmetic in nature, rather than a substantive program for formidably changing the manner in which most Mexican citizens view what is essential an institutionally corrupt nation at all levels of government.
