    Unfortunately, it doesn't sound like she will last long.

    I hate to sound so cold, but I don't think she's going to last 6 months. At least not with this plan:
    A young Guadalupe citizen complained to Valles, "We are spending a great part of our lives locked up inside our homes," according to a Spanish-language paper. Valles responded that she wants to encourage more events for young people in the town.

    "The weapons we have are principles and values, which are the best weapons for prevention," Valles told CNN en Español. "Our work will be pure prevention. We are not going to be doing anything else other than prevention."
    "My God David, We're a Civilized society."

    "Sure, As long as the machines are workin' and you can call 911. But you take those things away, you throw people in the dark, and you scare the crap out of them; no more rules...You'll see how primitive they can get."

    She's got heart, taking the job, but does she really realize how much danger she just put herself in? She's in for more than she bargained for I'm afraid.

    "Like winning a tiger in a raffle" That about sums it up. The only way Mexico will win against these cartels is with the help of the US military.

    She's got her hands full. Like winning a tiger in a raffle, yeah. Interesting that the quote was applied to public office of any sort across Mexico, not simply the police chief in a town that's 15mi from Juarez, the current death capital of Mexico. One might hope that being uncorrupted she's got a chance. It'll come down to how much mettle she's got and how willing people are to work with her. She and everyone else who seriously wants to survive to see peace in that small town are going to have to work extremely hard to stay alive while angering the criminal element that has gripped the northern border regions in a vice. Left dangling on her own, she's likely toast. Even with all resources behind her, she might not make it.

    I wonder whether in smaller towns each and every serious and connected criminal is known. Might well be nearly true. It might well take a clean sweep and full erasure of all criminals in order to restart. I wonder whether Mexico's establishment of uncorrupted leaders (what portion of the establishment is uncorrupted) would be game for such a step. Can't imagine how many that would come to ... 5000, ten times that? Might come to that, if there's to be any hope of success.

    There is a reason no one else applied. I'm sorry to say this, but she will not last long.

    Thye only thing that will help these people is to train and arm them with the weapons they need to defend against the drug cartels,disarming innocent people only makes them more vulnerable

    Imagine if the northernmost 5M people were equipped with a reliable 15rd 9mm pistol, 500 rds and trained to safely use it. I wonder if they'd have much hope of resisting, when full-auto and beheadings are all the rage.

    Out of some measure of sympathy, the cartels my give her an extra week or two, but I would doubt much longer.
