You have to wonder if the Sinaloa Drug Cartel will eventually get tired of breaking El Chapo Guzman out of prison and just have an internal struggle to lead to a new leader. He needs to go to the Supermax for the rest of his life where hopefully a tunnel will not be constructed to break him out in the US.
Hopefully. I always stress this is not a vigilante forum. As much as I hate Yaser Said, Robert Fisher, etc.. the object is always to catch these guys alive. I wouldn't shed a tear if they tried to shoot at cops and got killed but the idea is always to capture someone alive so they can face justice through a fair trial.
However, if I were Mexico, I would have just killed him. He was essentially a war-time fugitive and basically a terrorist so I feel he should have been exempt from the normal "capture alive first" rule.
However, it is what it is and hopefully El Chapo will go to Supermax for the rest of his life.
Hopefully the realization that sadly in the grand scheme of things El Chapo's "final" capture will only put a small dent if even that to the drug cartel violence, there will always be another guy willing to take over means that there won't be yet another effort to have him escape again.
How's this for weird? Apparently the actor Sean Penn interviewed Guzman while he was STILL ON THE RUN this past fall for Rolling Stone magazine.
Rather ironic considering we always talk about how much Sean Penn looks like FBI Top 10 member Jason Derek Brown.
Also, I'm not sure how this works? I know many will ask the question if Penn could be criminally charged with knowing where Guzman was and not alerting authorities, but for a rare instance, I'm going to admit I honestly just don't know the answer. I'm not sure knowing where someone is can get someone charged. You actually have to help them hide- feed and clothes them etc.... perhaps.
What I do know is Sean Penn might be a great actor but he violently abused Madonna when he was married to her and is now conducting interviews with a drug lord responsible for hundreds and thousands of deaths. I never really had much respect for Penn to begin with, but yeah now I really have none.
(Although I do also have one question- how come NO ONE could find this guy for months yet SEAN PENN was able to?)
Edit: I do give Sean Penn credit for his efforts in Haiti and New Orleans. But too often in between are the domestic violence allegations and other aspects to him.
I'm very surprised Guzman was captured alive. The amount of embarrassment his escape caused Mexico, it would've been much easier to shoot him dead, claim he drew on them. Hopefully, they send him here, where we can maybe keep a hold of him.
As for Penn, they're pretty much confirming his interview helped track him down. I'd keep an eye out if I was him.

Besides not knowing how long it took between the time Sean Penn found out where Guzman-Loera was and when the federal agents got the lead that took him down, that was very reckless of him to do an interview. At first, I thought it was worth it because it compromised El Chapo's flight from law enforcement... but then again, the Sinaloa Cartel can still elect a new leader... but then again, there may or may not be anyone with the competence that Guzman-Loera had to run the cartel... but then again, the best ways to shatter a cartel are not to cut off the leadership, but to cut off the customers' addictions and the prices on the market.
