Is this news ?

Americans have long tolerated shakedowns by police who boost salaries by pulling over motorists for alleged traffic violations, and tourists know parts of Baja are a hotbed of drug-related violence. But a handful of attacks since summer by masked, armed bandits -- some of whom used flashing lights to appear like police -- marks a new extreme that has spooked even longtime visitors.

No shakedowns the last time I was in Baja. Very few cops in general. Pretty much a free for all.
