Was driving to work this morning and there seemed to be an awful lot of police around and road-closures. Looks like the #1 narco has been caught.

It´s still pretty early so it´s possible that it isn´t him but the US have already confirmed it and I´m sure they were instrumental in his capture. They caught hid head of security a few days ago and another of his top men two days ago. I do agree with you that this will not have a major effect on drug production and flow to the US.

The U.S. still can`t prove they killed Osama Bin Laden. Let alone the war on drugs is desighned to make people rich. Some do and some don`t.

Time for the next guy to service the heroin pipeline from Afghanistan.   Government can't go out of business by ending its own manufactured crises after all.

Actually it was a condominium not a hotel, right?   He was probably living there near you somewhere,  not visiting like a tourist.

Yes, it was a condo building and nothing super fancy. I don´t think he had been in Mazatlan very long. Not a great place to hide-out for too long. Apparently they had been tracking him and had another opportunity to take him but it was out in the country and so opted to wait until he was in a confined space. I don´t think any bullets were fired so they made the right decision. With his top two guys being arrested earlier in the week and the seizure of 3 tons of coke amongst a lot of other valuables, the noose was slowly tightening. Wouldn´t be surprised in the least to find out the captured companions were drugged/tortured to help authorities locate him.

  I´ve heard that heroin use has really been increasing and the price is as low as it has ever been. What a coincidink!

Is this one bust really going to break the cartel?   I'm sure the information he can provide would be enough to do some serious damage but I doubt this one bust is going to slow the flow of contraband.   That's the thing with black markets.  They're created by prohibition; not destroyed by it.  ;)

Nope. As far as I can tell, the Sinaloa cartel still has most of it's high-ranking membership intact who will carry on the manufacture and sale of narcotics on the basis of earning as much money as possible before they'r eventually caught/gunned down.

And besides, knowing Mexico, he'd be out of jail within a few weeks anyway. It's not like the Mexicans can keep him in prison permanently unless they give him to the US for safe keeping, as prison guards there aren't easily bribed.

Yeah sure, just like killing Pablo Escobar changed absolutely nothing, so too will this change absolutely nothing.

Hold on a second here. Are you insinuating that prison officials were bribed when he escaped from jail 13 years ago in a laundry cart? :rofl:

The US sounds heavily involved in this one.  I seriously doubt Mexico would forget that and just let him go.

Both the US and Mexico have been after this guy for a decade. His cartel is the biggest and the US would probably want to tie him to his cartel's business across the border in the States with regards to drugs and killings.

Well Mexico would want to try him and imprison him, but Chapo escaped prison before and it's unlikely the Mexicans could keep him behind bars. Hence why an extradition to the US after charges and sentencing in Mexico or an agreement with the US would be beneficial in keeping Chapo where he belongs.

Could it be that El Chapo was so wanted because he would not cooperate with the CIA smuggling rings?

Or maybe he once did, and is no longer useful?
