20 year old student named police chief of Ciudad Juarez

It's an area that has been plagued by drug violence, referred to numerous times as a war zone, and been placed on the US State Department's "do not go" lists...Chihuahua, Mexico (Northern state bordering Texas)

This morning I came across a story that made me do a double take when I read the headline - Student, 20, named police chief of violent Mexican border town Guadalupe.  Marisol Valles is studying criminology and was apparently the only one brave enough to accept this position.
