Everyone thought she was crazy when she took the job. Marisol Valles Garcia, who was Mexico's youngest police chief, has now fled to the US after receiving death threats. No surprise here.
The 20-year-old criminology student was hailed as Mexico's bravest woman in October when she became head of public security in the border town of Praxedis G Guerrero. I just called her insane. The town is in in Chihuahua state, a virtual battleground for the drugs cartels. Praxedis is close to Ciudad Juarez, Mexico's most violent city, where more than 3,000 people were killed in drug-related violence in 2010 alone.
Welcome to America Ms. Garcia.
