Thank you for clarifying that.
For someone who cannot speak spanish & understand the dialect, like myself, your interpretation of her statement makes a lot of sense.
I watched the video again, but this time, I paid more attention to the police.
I don't know how mexican police differ from American police, but I'm pretty sure that US cops would've tasered her, then called the men in the
The cops seem to be acting peculiar. It's almost as if they know what she's talking about.
1. None of the cops seem to want to go near her.
2. The cops don't seem to be very well trained in dealing with mentally ill citizens. Let alone someone who is trying to reveal a possible dungeon of

Even if you don't agree with my initial analysis, you can't argue that these police officers aren't sure what to do in this situation, or they wish
they were just spectators.
It's almost like the female cop who finally arrests (was she arrested?) the woman said, "Fine. I'll do it since none of you can."
Here is a video of Carlos Slim calling on George W. Bush in 2007:

Can someone translate what he's saying? There's no subtitles.
