That’s One Way to Get a Job 

Thursday, October 21st, 2010

In the Mexican town of Guadalupe, drug violence has claimed the lives of many, including the mayor who was murdered in June, as well as police officers and security agents who have also been killed. The drug trade has such violent control of the entire area that when it came time to appoint a new police chief, there was very little interest in the position. In fact, only one person accepted the job as the new director of municipal public security: a 20 year old criminology student.

Marisol Valles is now in charge of the security for the town of 10,000, and its lone police patrol car. She’s got her work cut out for her, as in the last week alone there have been eight murders. Wish her luck, because it seems likely she’s going to need it.
