Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman was arrested Saturday in Mexico. He was known as a chief running one of the most strong drug trafficking operations, which gave him the title of an ‘elusive legend’.
Guzman was accompanied by a female on Saturday when he was arrested by the Mexican marines and Drug Enforcement Administration, where Guzman was spotted at a hotel in a beach resort located in Mazatlan.
When looking at this story, the first thing that came to my mind was how long was this drug lord living free in Mexico. It could relate to his power of reigning in the drug world. Afterall, drug lords are always on the “downlow” to keep their cover from authorities. Guzman should of rethink his decision being in a public beach resort where authorities can spot him easily.
A senior administration stated that this was a huge arrest that was done by a Mexican operation, but help was provided by the U.S. government.
Actions performed through Guzman’s life included the death and destruction of many individuals through the use of drug addiction, violence, and corruption.
It is good to see America help another country crack down on a serious issue such as this one. Drugs are a worldwide phenomenon that takes a lot of involvement, sometimes requiring more than one source.
What Guzman did to many people is cruel and he is ultimately thinking of himself. In other words, Guzman wants to gain his goals, particularly drug-related to benefit himself. But one can see this arrest as his end to all the non-sense he has created and furthermore ruined many innocent people’s lives.
