Mexican army urged to take over prisons
MEXICO CITY (AP) Inmates are carrying out vendettas inside prison walls, planning escapes and running their outside-world drug empires even at Mexico's highest-security penitentiaries, prompting Mexico City's mayor to call for the army to intervene. <snip>

Mexico City Mayor Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, an early presidential front-runner for the 2006 elections, said that "given the seriousness of the situation, the army should be brought in to temporarily take over the running of the prisons," a suggestion rejected by President Vicente Fox's government.

Jalisco Gov. Francisco Ramirez Acuna whose state includes the second-highest security prison, Puente Grande says he's had enough, and doesn't want any more dangerous federal inmates transferred to his state. <snip>
