ANGRY CITIZENS KIDNAP MAYOR OF TECOANAPA UNTIL HE PROMISES TO GET SH*T DONE
Well, that's one way to get construction done...
Excerpt: Mexico Daily News
Inaction by municipal authorities to replace a bridge that collapsed during heavy rains triggered a strong reaction yesterday by angry residents: they kidnapped the mayor.
About 150 residents had also mounted a blockade on the federal highway between Tecoanapa and Cruz Grande to make their case.
The existing bridge was washed out during heavy rainfall on June 26. Residents of the communities affected claimed they had warned municipal authorities that the bridge was in poor condition, but nothing was done about it.
