Police officer who arrested El Chapo’s son shot 155 times in public execution
El Chapo’s son had warned the police and military not to ever attempt to arrest him or there would be consequences they would not be able to cope with.
Despite the very real warning from one of the world’s most powerful families, officers took the threat as a challenge and an opportunity for riches and fame.
Ovidio Guzman, the son of Joaquin Guzman aka “El Chapo” was released in an effort to end the blood shed that raged against the police, military and government after his arrest.
In the infamous city of Culiacan in the Sinaloa province of Mexico, the arresting officer, a 32 soldier, was publicly executed being shot 155 times as a ‘warning and leason’ to authorities to stay clear of the Sinaloa Cartel.
US and Mexican special forces who have targeted the family and cartel for years released Ovidio “in an effort to end the bloodshed” that immediately rained down upon them following his arrest.
Mexico now has an estimated 30’000 dead bodies which have been ‘abandoned’ in trucks and containers or shallow hurried at the side of roads around Sinaloa as a result of the Cartel Wars.
Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Al-Sahawat Times than ever but advertising revenues across the global media industry are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a total paywall. We want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Al-Sahawat Times’ independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe truly ethical media and an unbias perspective really matters.
“I appreciate there not being a paywall: it is more democratic for the media to be available for all and not a commodity to be purchased by a few. I’m happy to make a contribution so others with less means still have access to information.”
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, the future of ethical media and the futures of our staff and their families would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support Al-Sahawat Times and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
