So I read that a major Mexican drug lord who had been apprehended “twice” has now broken out of a maximum security prison for the “second” time. Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, who was listed as one of the “world’s richest men in Forbes magazine” was actually “tunneled out of his cell.” My understanding was that the tunnel was so sophisticated that it even had lights and ventilation. I can only imagine that if this guy has the power to produce so “elaborate” an escape route that his means for avoiding capture are even “more” intricate. How can this happen? When you have lots of money, you can run just about anything you want, even from prison. You get special treatment and favors from your own guards. Guzman’s crime organization was “well known” for building tunnels to supply their drug trades. i would not be surprised if he isn’t using more tunnels to avoid capture now. The funny part about this is that being in jail was supposed to “stifle his control” over his drug agency. If he was living in luxury in his cell and still running things from behind bars, then the only thing they managed to do was just “change his living conditions.” The link to check out the story is at the top. So what happens now? This guy has the means and the power to go “anywhere he wants.” If he somehow manages to enter the United States then you can rest assured that the world’s biggest smirk will be had by Donald Trump right now. For those of you who don’t know, Mr. Trump made a very controversial statement that illegal immigrants entering our country from Mexico were drug dealers, criminals and rapists. People were turning against him before. It will be interesting to see what he has to say now. “IF” this felon every gets captured again, they “still” may not have the means to keep him imprisoned. When he broke out of prison before, he had help from the prison officials there. i would not be surprised if he had help from them this time as well. Whether he runs his cartel from prison or he runs if from home, until they can seize his assets he will just continue to do what he does. It is an embarrassment to the Mexican government and authorities. As hard as they will try to apprehend him again, i believe his means for avoiding capture may be more sophisticated than the governments. Stay tuned on this story. Thank you for reading my Daily Thought and as always I wish you the very best that life has to offer.
