I'll reserve judgement on whether the locals detaining the policia was "muy chingon" until I know more about it MM. Sometimes the criminals depend on a captive police force, (Esp the municipales), to allow/enable them. So then the question of whether the detectives de la Agencia Veracruzana de Investigaciones were held because they or others in the state judicial/police apparatus were culpable if only for not investigating the municipales prior to this. My gut feeling is that they didn't hold the policia hostage for no reason, and likely had some justification even if it was misplaced by detaining the police from Veracruz.
