Mexico City puts its cops on a diet

You've got to feel bad for Mexican police. On one side you've got the drug cartels trying to chop off your head and leave your body in the desert. On the other is the New York Times, calling you a fattie.

Their bulletproof vests squeeze like corsets, their gun belts lie hidden under rolls of fat. Mexico’s police officers may not catch as many criminals as they should, but they have the reputation of rarely missing a taco stand.

Hat Tip: Many thanks, goshel!
