@Chimera Remember the story that Chivis posted when Z40 was captured... it took a DEA agent from the US to break the story, a half day or so after 40 was captured... he did it cus he was afraid the Mexican govt would not announce it, so he forced their hand.
The Mexican govt *may* have been waiting for their bribe(s) to let Chapo go? Just speculating... but the DEA agent who released the 40 capture story was worried the news might not be released by the Mexican govt.
Buggs is reporting this on main page... not sure of source, maybe El Universal?
US requesting extradition per this report.
"Guzman was arrested in a hotel in Mazatlan and was immediately transported to Mexico City where they will verify his identity through fingerprints, DNA and teeth. Mexican authorities will attempt to sort out El Chapo's legal status and deicide on the request from U.S. government for his extradition to be dedicated in that country, according to U.S. government official’s statements provided to another US media source."
Buggs also says Mexican govt confirmed to El Universal.
IF this is him what do those of you who are closer to this situation think will happen as far as future violence, power grabs, etc? I would absolutely applaud Mexico if this is him, but I also worry as well because that leaves a big seat to be filled. Also, what if he turns informant?
I guess i dont understand why the man would be out in the open when you know things are hot. It didnt occur to him with all the heat on Mayo that it was all a distraction to get him? Havent heard anything about his security being or not being there too. And if you know theyte catching big fish toss your phones etc.. lay low
This is the biggest arrest in the history of the drug war. Think about it. They didn't arrest Pablo Escobar, he was killed. Amado Carrillo died in surgery. The closest actual arrests would have been the Orejela Brothers and Juan Garcia Abreggo. Very few Capos have been at El Chapo's level. This is huge and a major game changer.
Respectfully I have to disagree, Ukraine will be balkanized and if the stories of Chapos power are even close to truth, so will the narco structure in western Mexico be, and that means more violence and strife.
But I take my coronas anyway
