Female police chief killed in Mexico
(CNN) -- One of a small number of women who have filled a void by becoming police chiefs in violence-torn Mexico was gunned down Monday, authorities said.
Hermila Garcia, 38, became the top cop in the town of Meoqui just two months ago.
Gunmen attacked her as she drove to work by herself, authorities said.
Garcia was one of a handful of women who have taken leadership roles in police departments in cities and towns where men have stayed away because of fear.

"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
