    Cleaning up police is a nation-wide challenge. Closeby, in Chalco valley, some policemen are not as strict in their ethics as they are in their morning exercise. Like anywhere else in the country, they undergo exams every year : anti-doping tests, psychological probes and others.... But even the director himself doesn't really believe in their efficiency.These policemen earn 380 euros a month, But they can get ten times more just passing on information to drug cartels. And in Mexico, they call this offer plata o plomo - the silver of coins or the led of a bullet.
