Discipline is one thing…

… but perhaps this feller didn’t get the memo about use of lethal force to encourage obedience to direct orders…

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – A Mexican soldier shot dead two subordinates for refusing an order to clean up their base on the country’s Caribbean coast, a police spokesman said on Monday.

Alonso German was taken into military custody after shooting the two on Friday night at the army base near the resort of Cancun, said local police spokesman Angel Lopez.

He said he did not know what ranks the soldiers held. Officers at the base referred inquiries to Mexico’s Defense Ministry, where no one was immediately available for comment.

How could a superior officer not know the ranks of the soldiers under his command? Wow. Counting stripes (or the lack thereof) should be a fairly simple process.

No word on who has to clean up the NEW mess.
