This is a true story I took from another forum -- the man who wrote this is staying in an RV park near Mazatlan. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
"It was a typical early evening in the campground on the beach.We sat there watching the remnants of a Mexican sunset as we savoured our rum & cokes & margaritas.
A police car with lights
flashing burst through the main gates, luckily they were open! The two officers jumped out and started yelling in Spanish. Like deer caught in the headlights we all rather foolishly ran towards them.
With only enough Spanish between the lot of us to barely be able to order "dos cervezas", we managed to get that were saying something like "other car". So they were chasing a car full of banditos, and they thought they came in here. "No banditos aquis" someone managed. NO No, they meant a police car. Holy smoke they were chasing another police car! Probably full of corrupt, bribe taking, Mazatlan cops!
The cops appeared frustrated, one motioned a noose around his neck. Oh No, they were going to hang someone right there! Either the corrupt cops or us for not handing them over. All those stories about the Mexican police were true, we were going to witness a hanging! Some of the survivors would be on Larry King tomorrow!
Finally a dictionary was produced. They wanted a rope to tow a broken down police car!
One was quickly found, they were getting ready to leave, Mrs Orion went to take a picture of the car. NO NO NO, one of the cops yelled, and started to go into the car, obviously to get his M16.No, actually he put his red & white lights
on to make a better picture!
When they returned later with the rope, our friend asked if we could take a picture of her next to the police car. They insisted that she actually drive the police car around the campground, while the rest took pictures! We declined this, and compromised with them acting out putting her in the rear seat, with his hand on the prisoners head.
They left laughing, as was the entire campground, as we settled back to our happy hour in the warm evening. "
