    Mexico cartel chief 'El Chapo' captured alive, says US official

    Sinaloa Cartel chief ‘El Chapo’ captured alive, says U.S. official | Toronto Star

    MEXICO CITY—The head of Mexico’s Sinaloa Cartel was captured overnight by U.S. and Mexican authorities at a hotel in Mazatlan, Mexico, The Associated Press has learned.

    A senior U.S. law enforcement official said Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman was taken alive overnight in the beach resort town. The official was not authorized to discuss the arrest and spoke on condition of anonymity.


    Good news and surprising considering it seemed like he had most of the Mexican government in his pocket for awhile.

    I would have preferred depriving the man of his income by legalizing drugs. As a second best this is okay though.

    Considering this man is responsible for hundreds of murders I would not be satisfied with just that. Especially since he's already massed about a billion dollars last time they estimated.

    maybe he can give us the location of his source of his drugs so we can sabotoge it.

    All those dead and that amassed fortune just because we criminalize drugs. Such a waste.

    I agree, at least on some drugs. It doesn't absolve Guzman though.

    And such a non-existent connection between two points.

    It would seem so. He made a billion dollars while he had a seven million dollar bounty on his head. He had to have had something going for him.

    I wonder who will take his place? Surely, no one thinks his capture will be the end of drug smuggling from Mexico do they?

    When I was shown the picture today, the clean one, not the one after they beat him, I wondered who was going to fill the void left by him.

    I also wonder if my área, which he controlled, will now be out of control because some wild man comes in like one of the Zetas.

    Sounds like you're in Mexico.

    I'm wondering the same thing, but from a safer distance.
