"President vows action on crime

MEXICO CITY - Moving quickly to address mounting anger over crime, President Felipe Calderon promised yesterday to adopt several proposals from civic groups who led more than 100,000 Mexicans in marches against daily kidnappings and killings. Among the measures are the creation of a citizens' panel to monitor government progress in fighting crime, better police recruiting and oversight systems and equipping police with more powerful weapons, the president said. The government "shares the demands and the indignation of the people," Calderon said after meeting with 14 civic leaders who staged Saturday night's candlelight protests in the capital and cities across the country (AP September 1, 2008)."
