New police chief's head left at station

I hear there's a job opening in Ciudad Juarez. Aye, Chihuahua, indeed.
The city, which lies just across the border from El Paso, Texas, in the state of Chihuahua, has one of the highest homicide rates in Mexico. El Universal reported that Martin Castro Martinez was one of 15 people killed execution-style in 24 hours.
I read this week that Mexico is one of the countries that our military believes is poised for collapse. The drug cartels have pretty much taken over in many areas of Mexico, and gangs are striking with impunity against their rivals, including the military and police.

That's not good.
