student-named-police-chief-in-violence-plagued-mexican-town-after-no-one-else-would-apply


Quote:

A town near drug cartel capital Juarez, Mexico, had just one applicant for police chief after a spate of killings of public officials in drug-related violence.

So now the new chief in Guadalupe, a town of 10,000 residents near the Texas border, is 20-year-old college criminology major Marisol Valles García.

Public officials have increasingly become the targets of assassination as Mexican cartels try to tighten their grasp on the country. Just this year, 11 Mexican mayors have been slain, including the former mayor of Guadalupe, who was killed in June. In the small town, "police officers and security agents have been killed, some of them beheaded," according to the AFP.

Valles tells a local paper that she took the job to help the town's people become less fearful. "Afraid? Everyone is afraid and it's very natural. What motivates me here is that the project [to make the community safer] is very good and can do a lot for my town. I know that we are going to change and remove this," she said.


This young woman is either incredibly naive, or she has more guts and integrity than many grown men. Everything I know about women tells me it's the latter. Good luck to her, and I believe an honourary brown coat is in order.

"To arms" the men were called,
But none was man enough to fight.
In St. Just's way stood but one.
One maiden, dressed in white.

And those who dared to look that night,
A fearful tale could tell,
Of how one girl faced the Devil's might,
And sent him back to hell.


(* Poetry from Tales of the Slayer chapter 2: "Righteous." Written by Joss. Quoted because, if ever a girl qualified as having the heart of a Slayer. . .)

I'm thinking it's entirely possible for both to be true.

Good luck to her though.

I... Wish I could be as optimistic as everyone else here in this thread. You all realize how this is going to end, and how it's going to be worse for her, being a woman? You know what's going to happen.

THIS machine kills fascists- Woody Guthrie


I watched Avatar(airbender not blue people) today. Throughout the series it's the kids that stand up and fight. Couldn't help thinking "If this were reality they'd all end up chopped to pieces and disposed of in an igloo cooler."

Good luck, kid...You're gonna need every bit of it...

She has the strength borne of naiveté; sometimes it's enough.

I fear for her safety and her life, but I hold out hope as well.
