    Mexico's new plan to crack down on drug money:

    you can keep some!

    A new initiative offers those who tip off Mexican investigators to money launderers up to one-quarter of the value of whatever is seized.

    Mexico City
    Catch a criminal, keep his wallet.

    In short, that's Mexico's newest plan to crack down on the annual flow of billions of dollars into the hands of drug gangs.

    The attorney general's office announced the new initiative against money laundering this week, the latest in a series of government efforts to curtail the flow of money that finances drug gangs. Mexicans who tip off investigators to money launderers will receive up to one-quarter of the illegal funds seized.

    But not everyone is enthusiastic about the new initiative, with some analysts cautioning that it shifts the burden of intelligence-gathering to the individual and is a risky gamble in a battle where revenge seems to know no limits.

    Why the US hasn't been doing this since the start is really beyond me. Paying people for information to fight the drug war?

    Why is this frowned upon.

    Because the US pays a professional law enforcement agency to do the job it isn't doing?

    It will make THEM look like idiots or worse............corrupt?

    I see a future where more folks being beheaded leave behind more significant amounts of money than previous victims.
