The 21-year-old Mexican girl who took a job as police chief? (MERGED)
Many of you probably remember the extensive thread on her a while back. No one else in her small Mexican town would take the job as previous officials had been beheaded. She said she would focus not on fighting the cartels, but on building up the community.
Many of us had high hopes, but little faith that she'd make a difference. We were worried the cartels would get to her and her naivete would be the end of her, and we were almost right. Apparently she told city officials she was coming to the US for a short trip for medical attention for her son, but has not returned by the day she said and has been fired. Rumors have been circulating that she was becoming targeted by increasing death threats and is seeking asylum in the US.
