El Chapo’s son arrested, 29 people killed

No less than 29 people died during the capture of El Chapo ‘s son in Mexico, which is a huge number. It should also be noted that extradition to the United States is by no means guaranteed.

The people killed in the violent circus during the arrest were suspected gang members (19) and military personnel (10), while Mexican cartel leader Ovidio Guzman found his hands tied.

The capture was made in the northern state of Sinaloa, said Defense Minister Luis Cresencio Sandoval.

Guzman, 32 years old, is the son of drug lord El Chapo Guzman, who has been behind bars for several years.

The young Guzman was transported by helicopter to the plane that took him to Mexico City, and then entered a maximum security federal prison.

Such an arrest creates a shock wave, since the Sinaloa cartel went on a rampage setting fire to cars, or blocking roads…

Nevertheless, no less than 21 arrests were made in total, which is huge.

Note that no civilians were killed during this capture worthy of a Hollywood movie.

At the time of composing these few lines, it is not expected that Guzman will be extradited to the United States, either to New York, where his father has been since 2017.

“The elements (of the case) must be presented and the judges in Mexico decide. It’s a process … It’s not just the request. No U.S. forces were involved in the capture of Ovidio!” said Lopez Obrador.

It is important to note that an increased security presence will remain in Sinaloa for a few more days to protect the public.
