I’m amazed at the courage displayed by the local Mexican police, fighting against all odds to protect their unarmed border-state populations from the marauding terrorist gangs, heavily armed and aided by two governments — one having already disarmed the Mexican people, while the other moves at break-neck speed in disarming the people of the United States. These Mexican cops are the canaries in the coal mine. They are the early warning system alerting danger at our common border. Unlike local law officers here in the States, who are lucky to be backed by an armed populace the local Mexican police have no such luxury. I think it’s about time we start paying attention to what is happening on the border, instead of pooh-poohing the border news as inconsequential. We got us some border problems folks, so please lend this an eye.
Yesterday, news broke concerning the disappearance of the police chief of a small town outside Ciudad Juarez called Praxedis Guadalupe Guerrero. Chief Marisol Valles Garcia, a 20 year old college criminology student, who was the only one in the small town left that qualified for the position, or would take the position back in October of 2010, has gone missing. An unidentified relative told sources that she left quickly to seek asylum in the US for herself and her 8 month old son. This following some very serious death threats from local gang members. It’s been almost a week now and no word at all on her whereabouts. Authorities deny reports the Mexican police chief has fled.
