Yesterday i had some bad news form one of my friends...shes a mexican here. Her brother who is 26, geeky looking and wouldnt hurt a fly...was walking his dog... (again, the dog is such a softy) on bonampac near to where the new construction is going on late lastnight (sunday). Anyway...he came across a plant he likes...and like i do, and maybe some of you do, he took a small....and i mean a small...maybe an inch of a cutting from the plant. The security guard saw this....and started screaming..."THEAF!!! stop!! your stealling!!" and proceeded to call the police...meanwhile, he was saying calmly to the gaurd, look, its just a cutting, i will put down and be on my way...."no!! its too late" so he got scared and began walking up towards tulum...anyway, check this, 8...yes thats right 8!! police trucks turned up, and about 10-15 police got out....didt say a thing,just that they spoke to the security guard....they threw him and his dog into the truck and began to beat him up....he was trying to save his dog and hugged hiim, and they beat him some more wiht sticks...a guy was walking by and saw this, and said that he didnt do anything, let him go....and he gave him the number to his house, and cried "call my mother or sister" the police head this and beat him harder saying "you want your mommy!!??" after several hard beatings, leaving him with sore brusing all over his body they threw him out....and took his dog to the dog pound. Being sunday it was closed, so they just dumped him in the jungle next to it....luckyly they found the dog alter on, shaken...but ok. Hows about that for a bit of injustice!! what the hell can we do? they cannot get away with this as they so often do.
