Video: The Mexican jail break

A.k.a. why we’ll never trust Mexico to enforce its side of the border. No one breaks into prison to free shoplifters, needless to say, so don’t be surprised to find that the fugitives here are A-listers:

Interpol described the worst of the criminals, who escaped without firing a shot, as ‘a risk to the safety and security of citizens around the world.’

The inmates stole 23 guns from a prison storage room before walking out through the front gates.

A prison spokesman said the police uniforms worn by the getaway drivers and the fleet of police cars that pulled up outside the prison with flashing lights to ferry away the escapees were all fakes.

But investigators refused to rule out the possibility of police involvement.

Those “fake” uniforms look pretty real to me. Exit question: Why are the prisoners all dressed in civilian clothes?
