Here's The Plot for Your Next Drug-Wars Thriller

20-year-old woman student is police chief of violent Mexican town: "A 20-year-old criminology student, the only candidate for the position, was designated as police chief in the violence-plagued town of Guadalupe Distrito Bravo, Mexican media reported Tuesday.

Marisol Valles Garcia took charge on Monday of security in the town, population 10,000, on the US border. The community is around 80 km east of Ciudad Juarez, itself regarded as the most violent city in Mexico."

Marisol says she's not going to pursue the drug traffickers, claiming it's not her job. Hmmm. You don't think they have her in their pocket, do you?

There are several Mexican police departments that ignore the drug trade because fighting them is so dang dangerous.
