“Authorities have begun handing blue police uniforms and assault rifles to vigilantes in western Mexico, legalising a movement that formed last year to combat a vicious drug cartel. Scores of farmers lined up on Saturday at a cattle ranch to receive uniforms of the newly created rural state police force in Tepalcatepec, a founding town of the self-defence militias in the lush agricultural state of Michoacan.”
