talk about a monumental task

I heard about this on NPR and was just blown away at the choice this man took.  It is sad that we report that he survived his first day in office as Nuevo Laredo’s new Police Chief, Omar Pimentel Zuñiga.  I mean, literally survived.  This is an office where his predecessor survived 7 hours before being assassinated.  Nuevo Laredo faces a drug war on a large scale and I am disheartened with how pervasive the drug crimes run within that city and how impossible it looks to turn things around.  I wish Señor Omar a lot of luck. From some articles I read, he is 37 with 3 small children and a pregnant wife.  For more infomration on what is happening there, check out:
