Re: suport your local sheriff

Here's a transliteration of what Judith Boel posted. Please feel free to suggest better interpretations, but I don't think that I'm very far off the mark:

>I agree that there should be a more visible police presence in this town, but they must protect the whole population, not just our "foreigners," fair to say?

Where can I read coordinated plans amongst yourself, el delegado, and Adan (who is the head of security ejidal)?

I was a municipal politician for 9 years, and I have seen that, without coordination, we have always had communication problems (too many communication problems) while spending too much money.

Finally, how do you propose to regulate/make available weapons if we need to chase and catch a criminal in our community? [The "for example" is used since she refers specifically to a thief.]

We have a long history of vigilantism/vigilantes in Mexico. I'm not enamored of the idea of having more police presence here without tight control over their conduct as a group.

Thanks for your attention to this post.
