the fact of whether it is loaded or not really is not of importance. it is that the officers handed weapons over to them for a photo op, i cant be the only one to see a issue with that.
another reason not let the "Murderer's/no-heart thugs" hold a firearm after they were captured.
its a photo op nothing more this is a bit of a diffrence of opinion on peoples parts. No one can judge the way other countrys or cultures do there jobs in capturing this narcos or terrorist as they are.
So dont judge Mexican officers for doing this photo op they done a thounsand times.
I quite like seeing the narco scum look dejected and defeated as they are even tho they have there weapons that gives there there courage to scare unarmed civilians.
