What's this segment.All I remember is that Some African American Guy and his brother were at some sort of Party.One of the guys did something and the police said they'd talk to him or something.and,The brother sees the guy bing driven away in a police car and then they find his body in a bag on the street.
The victim's name was Jayson Artis. The UM segment originally aired on CBS in the spring of 1999, less than a year after Jayson's death.

Well this just backs up a theory I and many have probably had on this board for a long time. Extreme corruption on the part of Mexican police in general particularly the Tijuana police. You couldnt pay me to venture into Tijuana or Mexico for that matter but especially Tijuana. They dont really investigate American deaths and disapperances just like they probably even hunt out Americans when they come there because they know Americans will have money and other things to steal. Heck it got so bad in Tijuana at the beginning of this month the New Mexican president actually completely disarmed the Tijuana police department, the entire department! He said the individual officers can only get their weapons back if they pass background investigations and prove they are not corrupt. That tells you the corruption is pretty widespread I would say.

Yes, that episode was when they went to some club just over the border just like most of the other college drunks do, and they ran into trouble. He accidentally bumped inot a police officer, and by chance when his friend was exiting the bar sometime later he saw Jason in the back of the police car.
If that account is true, then Jason was somehow murdered and it was shown they made it look like a hit and run.

Yeah, but didn't one coroner say that his wounds were totally inconsistent with a hit and run accident? I tend to believe that the Tijuana police were involved and Jayson's death was meant to send a message to the young partygoers from the U.S.
...yet another reason I will most likely NEVER party in Tijuana.
