    I think she is a hero, but I don't know if I would have had the balls of this woman.

    It is just sad that a country as large as Mexico is at the mercy of drug gangs. Where is the Mexico Eliot Ness? Maybe Mexico government should ask Putin for advise on how to control gangs.

    It's disgusting how the Mexican cartel does anything it wants and nothing seems to be able to stop it. And now they're apparently deep in the federal government, too. Nothing is safe over there.

    I have friends from Mexico who swear they only attack each other and people in government, but I have no idea how anyone rests easy over there.

    Do you have kids? this is a no brainer move if you have kids.

    Or are you talking about the ball required to survive 2 assassination events and not get up and leave? That just seems like stupidity to me.

    I guess trying to help her people was important to her.
    Alot of times. . . Heroics are stupidity in hindsight

    I know she is a d*mn sight braver and more heroic than some dude jumping from 'the edge of space'

    She was doing something to help folx . . .

    Good ole prohibition of mar1juana in America - instead of creating organized crime in Chicago,(prohibition of alcohol) it creates "cartels" in Mexico! Prison lobbies absolutely love it as it creates a constant revenue stream of customers..oops I mean prisoners for $$$. Bribe... oops I mean "lobby" congress with $$$$$$ to get whatever they want. I mean whatever they want.

    Yes but what about her own family. What would you do if she was your wife? Would you support her or leave her.

    8:30 in the morning...taking your kids to school...smh...only in Mexico...

    The people of Mexico need to take back their country and this is where the world needs to help...if this isnt an example of a war on terror, then what is???

    This poor woman sacrificed her life to protect her child's. This is the greatest love any human can show in their life time. May God grant rest to her soul...

    Modern day heroine and martyr.

    Best way to remember her is to enact change in this country.
