Mexican town's last police agent kidnapped

The last remaining police agent in Guadalupe, Mexico, was kidnapped last week, a spokesman for the Chihuahua state attorney general's office said.

Authorities are trying to find Ericka Gandara, who was kidnapped from her home in Guadalupe around 6 a.m. on Thursday, Chihuahua attorney general’s office spokesman Arturo Sandoval said.

Her family did not file a missing-person report, but authorities learned of her disappearance from friends.

The town of Guadalupe is on the outskirts of Juarez, a city in and around which two cartels have been engaged in a violent turf war since 2008.

      WELL... you would have a tunnel or climb in thru a steel door. and just have a phone to answer calls. maybe have cameras to see the outside? probably wouldn't work anyways..they get you comeing to work or going home..

      all i know is that if i was a cop down there i'd have like three bullet proof vest on and a big insurance policy for my wife and kids.

    My recouning was not just about me. It's about all those whose lives have been disrupted by police brutality and injustice right here at home. You rarely hear of stories like mine, unless they occur outside our borders. It's worse here than people are led to believe. Why? Because this is what happens when police and military forces use the same tactics as the criminals and the "terrorists". When you fight fire with fire, everything burns down.

    It's just easier to unite unions of nations than it is to unite individual nations. Until there is one world government, any declarations of peace would be unbelievable.

    Well as you know this entire border hysteria is simply racism from the right wing extremists. There's no border problem. There's no crime problem in Mexico. Those right wing racist facist red neck Anglo kluckers are stirring things up. It's all in the imagination. No need to reinforce the INS. No need to tighten border security.

    You tell'em Kanaka you are soooo right!!! I'm with ya, the government of this country(America) needs to start cleaning out this country of ALL of the little worthless LEECH'S... I to am sick of hearing it's all America's fault, if our gov would grow a set and clean them out our crime rates would drop at all levels. These people are rude,useless,disrespectful,lazy,worthless and the list goes on, they come here for a better life my azz.. They are here because they have ruined their country so now they feel the need to destroy another.. Like the pestalence in the bible, they devouer and move on... Come on American people wake up and smell the pigs, they are everywhere, you can't help but to smell them!! If our gov won't do something, we need to FORCE THEM TO!!! Or start doing it ourselves... *Wayne*
