    Well Tom,

    My passport has been missing for more than a year. So for nearly a dozen recent trips I've gone with no passport, just a drivers license. The CBP doesn't seem to mind too much. They punch in my CDL number and it seems to informs the agent on their computer that I do have a current passport.

    As for your second criticism.

    I take the 5th.

    The Leyva family employees private guards to patrol their two hotels: Hacienda de Santiago and Hacienda de Posada (formerly known as Hotel Levya).

    These private guards dress in all black uniforms. I've seen them often at those two hotels, but I have never seen them engage with anyone. Instead they appear to perform regular guard functions, like "observe and report" to the policia if actual police activities are needed (questioning, detainment or arrest).

    Because of their uniforms, guests and residents of those two hotels often humorously refer to them as the "Men in Black".

    078 is the Tourist Assistance Hotline?

    Just dial literally 078 from our cell phone, no more no less digits to get them?

    Some people love the thrill, I guess.

    Or they wish to live a healthier life on a low-calorie prison diet with opportunity for physical exercise, no alcohol, and an occasional sperm snack?

    Don't have a passport so had to pay 20 $ bribe to cross on Tuesday. Wednesday morning I had just woken up, major hangover. Mucho tequila.

    Didn't even get 50 feet away from Hong Kong before I got stopped. Forgot I had weed pen on me. They found it, told me either jail or take the 45 $ from my wallet and put it back in my pocket for them to take.

    Sucks, overall, the trip was worth it, thankfully I only had a little bit of cash on me when I was stopped.

If anyone has any recent news please post and report it to tourist info line....?

    It was not much later. I keep my money fairly organized. So when I was stopped. Iwas able to get my phone and the bigger bills in my hand and was not that concerned with the ones. After being released and once back in the bar I reached in my pocket and noticed the whole wad of 1's was missing. Never even knew he took them during the search.

    On a side note this cop was getting out of control. The day before he had thrown an amigo against a wall and stole money from him. Many in the zona hated this guy. SG's were pissed as they would see this guy robbing tourists and felt like he was stealing money that should go to him. I also later found out the mesero who lent me his phone to report the crime was his godson. (Even he hated this guy) I had to borrow the phone because mine was not working to reach the Tijuana emergency number.

He then proceeds to grab money out of my hand and pass it out to people on the street to show me he doesn't need my money.

    While this was far from the normal shakedown which Jackie described. You get a far to brazen asshole and anything can happen. At least in this case the outright theft of my money allowed me to call the emergency number and report him and a short time later my money was returned to me.

    While the most common shakedowns involve making you think you broke the law. Like having an ED pill or drunk in public. Then they request you can make the problem go away with a bribe. If they don't have anything on you then to secretly relieve you of a 20 or some amount they think you might not notice is common. And then as you stated not that common but there are those rouge thieves masqurading as Tijuana police who will outright rob you.
    This is the type of common policia shakedown was what I was remembering. Policia intimidation and false assertions that over-the-counter Viagra was illegal to possess in Tijuana. Some mongers dolled out some pretty large amounts of money under the threat of being hauled off to Jail.

    Mexico's market for $10 fake cellphones.

    Mexico's market for $10 fake cellphones bought by fearful locals who hand them over in muggings.

    "Commuters are turning to a new tactic when tasked with being forced to hand over their cellphones to thieves aboard buses in Mexico City.

    The clever residents are now buying fake smartphones as they seek to combat muggers who demand their real handheld devices.

    Merchants are selling the 'dummies' that cost 180 to 800 pesos, approximately $10 to $40, in the historic city center.

    Public transportation customers have found the fakes to come in handy when trying to fool trigger-happy bandits who regularly attack the buses, big and small, that ferry people from the poorer outlying suburbs to jobs. . . ".

    You should be able to dial 078 and 911.

    I have done it twice, but I have T Mobile. I tested it once and used it when I was about to be shaken down for no reason.

    Just dial it when in Tijuana and see if it works.
