*BREAKING NEWS* This morning Mexico finally recaptured the infamous druglord ‘El Chapo’.
Infamous Mexican drug kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, who escaped his sentence when he tunneled out of a maximum-security prison in July of 2015, was recaptured early Friday in a deadly raid by Mexico’s navy. El Chapo is being transported back to Altiplano, the same maximum security prison that he fled using an elaborate tunnel that was dug under his shower stall, Attorney General Arely Gomez Gonzalez said at a news conference later today. “Mission accomplished,” Mexico’s President Enrique Peña Nieto said on Twitter Friday. “We have him.” The drug lord was tracked down partly because he planned to make a biographical movie about his escape and his people had been in contact with actors and producers, which led officials to his safe house, Gonzalez said. The Mexican Navy, seen as less corruptible than the country’s police forces and army, has taken the lead in fighting the cartels and carried out the El Chapo operation. The navy said in a statement that marines, acting on a tip, stormed into a home in the town of Los Mochis before dawn. They were fired on from inside the building, five suspects were killed and six others arrested, according to the statement. A U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration statement said El Chapo’s capture was “a victory for the rule of law and the Mexican people and government.” Nevertheless, songs about the infamous drug boss are already sprouting up from big name artists like hip-hop legend ‘The Game’ and dubstep DJ Skrillex who made “El Chapo – I Am The God” right before his capture. Not so godly now, huh? I guess we shall see if the kingpin of the Sinaloa cartel has what it takes to once again escape and evade his ultimate sentence.
