Mexico town creates female vigilante force

Vigilante group in western state inducts 100 recruits to protect town from drug cartels.

    Mexico's growing vigilante movement is mostly made up of men who patrol their communities to protect them from drug gangs.

    A small town in the state of Guerrero has been overwhelmed by the challenges, however, and is now recruiting whoever wants to volunteer to be a part of the town's vigilante security service.
