    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.

    If this article is correct (since it is on Yahoo, I might believe about 20% of it), she knew what she was getting into from the start. She can't just tuck her tail and try to hop the border, now. People in that country need to start standing up for themselves or it is never going to get any better down there. I hope this girl gets things straightened out, though. I would hate to see her become another victim of her mob run country.

    CNN is also reporting on this news story here:

    Mexico chief fired amid reports she fled for safety - CNN.com

    This sure does seem awfully convenient for her. Young, unwed mother and University Criminology Student takes police job, then just 4 months later is able to seek asylum to come live in USA.

    Sure sounds like a win - win for her.

    According to the article though, asylum is normally only granted when an individual is being threatened, attacked etc. by their government. Since it's the cartels doing the threatening it's iffy.

    That may be a bit of a stretch but if it's true and she has that kind of guts and innovation to her credit she just might be an asset here.

    I note that the USG turned down the asylum request of a male police chief a couple of months ago.

    She didnt last long...

    Mexican chief, 20, abandons her post, gets fired

    We had a discussion here of a young woman that became a Police Chief in a town that was dominated by two different gangs that were in a battle for control of the town.

    Its a shame that it didnt work out, but it's not suprising really.

    I cant fault her for that. At least she gave it a shot. Unfortunately, her decision to step up wasn't reality based.

    Sounds like she was smart. Get asylum and never have to even show up for the job.

    The last Police Chief was about 22 yr old woman who disappeared and was killed.

    Let's start a "be a Police Chief in Mexico for a day " campaign for them.

    I don't know, but this is not something that I am willing to accept de facto. ABC News has reported that they never were able to get get any interview with her while she was serving as police chief, as she was never there when they called, and the staff could not even predict for them when she would be in. So did she really even ever make an honest effort at this job? I'm not sure of that.

    I just did some checking, and I can find no College or University anywhere in Mexico even remotely near her city that offers a degree in Criminology. And why would someone who is just a student, and with no actual degree, be offered a job as a police chief?

    According to the New York Times, a Texas state human rights ombudsman by the name of Gustavo de la Rosa Hickerson is investigating this case and trying to locate her to help her come to the USA legally. But he told the Times that he has been unable to talk to her, as no US government officials know where she is at currently. So it sure as heck does not sound like she is currently here legally to me.

    It bothers me greatly that no one in the US media has ever actually been able to talk to this woman and interview her. Did the US press simply swallow these reports whole, and never verify anything?

    This story just does not add up to me. It never really made any sense to me at all from the get go. And now it makes even less sense, in my opinion.

    There is a fishy smell in my nose. It is quite strong.

    She wasn't offered the job per se. No one else would take it because the previous officials had been beheaded.

    Do you realy trust the Media as much as your comments indicate?

    There have been innumerable law officers over the years and even Police Chiefs that did not have Criminal Justice Degrees. Some without were better than some that did have.

    Since you are so deep into academia tell us when the first Criminal Justice course was available at an accredited university in the US.

    The young lady was gutsy if nothing else and a large measure of that is what resulted in the USA.
