    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Officials: Wiretaps, former aides led US, Mexican officials to Mexico's most-wanted

    Officials: Wiretaps, former aides led US, Mexican officials to Mexico's most-wanted drug lord


    Mexican marines working with U.S. authorities chased him but lost the man known as "Shorty" in a maze of tunnels under the city, a U.S. government official and a senior law enforcement official told The Associated Press on Sunday.


    It would be a short-lived escape for Guzman, who was captured early Saturday hiding out in a condominium in Mazatlan, a beach resort town on Mexico's Pacific Coast.

    As allies fell to police operations, noose closed on most-wanted Mexican drug lord 'El Chapo'


    A U.S. law enforcement official said Saturday that at least some were actually security for Guzman, and authorities used them to obtain information that helped lead to the head of the cartel. The official was not authorized to talk to journalists and spoke on condition of anonymity.

    Heard about his capture on the radio this morning.

    These larger cases fascinate me with the elaborate plans drug dealers use to move drugs, themselves, bodies, guns, phones, what have you.

    Cucumbers and bananas. Who would have thought to check their produce?! (Did they mean plantain bananas though? 'Cause the regular bananas would turn if you open them anywhere, but the plantain kind are only good once the skin has turned, so no one would suspect with those.)

    The underground sewage tunnels, oh boy, yuck! Guess all the money and power was worth it for a while to them.

    Unfortunately, we know this will not end anything. I'm sure others are set up for takeover. It never ends, but I do get happy when a Big Fish is captured.

    Unless I have included a link, it is my opinion and only my opinion that I am expressing.

    Mexico - Drug lord Joaquin 'El Chapo' Guzman escapes again, July 2015

    Jailed Sinaloa cartel drug kingpin Joaquin Guzman escaped from Mexico's Altiplano jail, Saturday night. He was last seen in the showers.

    This is the second time 'El Chapo' (shorty) has escaped - it was only last year when offficials announced his recapture with a great fanfare after he'd spent 13 years on the run after the first escape in 2001. He had been serving a 20-year sentence.

    Understandable why he was last seen in the shower - he was digging a mile-long tunnel to escape in there!

    18 Altiplano prison staff are being questioned over the escape.

    If I were THEDONALD - I'd think long and hard about what I just
    said in the press about Mexico - especially since he just had a huge
    rally in Arizona yesterday bashing Mexicans.

    CHICAGO — A federal judge sentenced twin brothers on Tuesday to 14 years in prison each for running a nearly $2 billion North American drug ring, agreeing with prosecutors to drastically reduce their sentences as reward for their cooperation against Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman and other Mexican cartel leaders.


    “Even though I am not going to sentence you to life, you are leaving here with a life sentence,” he told them. “Each time you start your car (when you are out of prison), you are going to be wondering, is it going to start, or will it explode.”

    Since this is in Mexico, will we have to go by mostly rumors? I am wondering how much info is available in Mexico. Media, public records, etc.

    This article is a few years old & is very LONG, but really goes into a lot of details about him & his drug empire.

    Here is just one paragraph:

    But Chapo’s greatest contribution to the evolving tradecraft of drug trafficking was one of those innovations that seem so logical in hindsight it’s a wonder nobody thought of it before: a tunnel. In the late 1980s, Chapo hired an architect to design an underground passageway from Mexico to the United States. What appeared to be a water faucet outside the home of a cartel attorney in the border town of Agua Prieta was in fact a secret lever that, when twisted, activated a hydraulic system that opened a hidden trapdoor underneath a pool table inside the house. The passage ran more than 200 feet, directly beneath the fortifications along the border, and emerged inside a warehouse the cartel owned in Douglas, Ariz. Chapo pronounced it “cool.”

    You aren't kidding that is a long article - very informative. I just want to know where he was caught the last time he escaped. In the US or Mexico? I am guessing Mexico since he was in a Mexican prison.
