Since El Chapo is captured at the conclusion of a shootout with the (Mexican) marines, I bet there were more than a few disappointed people on the government side to see kingpin getting out of that one alive.
Wouldn't it be simpler (and cleaner) to just have El Chapo killed off? I agree that in the short term, capturing him alive makes for a more presentable outcome -- they can claim all that "bring him to justice within the legal system" bullshxt. But the guy has already escaped twice, and as long as he remains in Mexico, you can bet he is going to make a 3rd escape attempt.
Was reading TIME earlier today, and I am surprised to learn that one of the reasons El Chapo got caught is because he was apparently in contact with filmmakers, with plans to make a movie about himself. Authorities got ahold of that news, and were able to follow up on the trail.
I am simply at a loss of what I can possibly say to that... When you are a fugitive on the run, why would you even be thinking about that?
On Friday, January 8th, nearly six months after his escape from Mexico's most secure prison, Sinaloa Cartel boss Joaquín Guzmán Loera, a.k.a. El Chapo, was apprehended and taken back into custody. Just months earlier, Sean Penn had traveled in secret through the Mexican jungle to meet with Chapo, then America's most wanted international fugitive. Upon meeting Penn, the drug kingpin consented an interview at a later time. Ultimately, it proved impossible to do the interview in-person, but Penn sent questions by BBM device and Chapo agreed to record his responses on videotape. Without being present, Penn could neither control the questioning, nor prod for elaborations into his responses. The video that Chapo sent back – two minutes of which you can view above – represents what we believe to be the notorious drug lord's first-ever interview outside an interrogation.
We'll see if he actually gets extradited, as it could be seen as an admission that Mexico is unable to keep a prisoner locked up, and that their system is inadequate.
If he does though, he's fucked for sure.
