Marisol Valles Garcia, a brave woman!



I think it's more than appropriate to pay some attention to the 21 year old Marisol Valles Garcia who took a job noone wanted, as the chief of Police in the northern parts of Mexico.
She was just a criminologist student but yet she took up the fight against the drug cartels - til now.

Recently she fled to the USA with her family because of the deadly threats towards her and her family members:
It's either "silver or led" ("plata o plomo") as the Mexican drug cartels said, meaning that either she take bribes and work for both the police and the cartels or she will be killed.
She refused to take bribes and the threats became worse.
Her predecessors were tortured and beheaded.

Yet she didn't focus primarily on the cartels but tried to work in a proactive way, employing female unarmed polices, working among the poor and young, influencing them to stay away from drugs and the cartels.

I can understand her decision and on the same time, this displays the fact that one have to crush these cartels, using non legal methods as legal methods are of no use when fighting this kind of criminality.
Mussolini succeeded in fighting the Italian mafia. Why not look at what kind of methods he used.
