Six of the eight cartels have Command networks in Texas!

The Mexican drug cartels are the biggest threat of organized crime in Texas, according to an intelligence report, released today which highlights the main risks to public safety entity.

Human trafficking at the Border“Six of the eight cartels currently have command and control networks operating in the state and move drugs and people into the United States while carrying cash, weapons and stolen vehicles into Mexico,” said the report.

The “Summary of Threats to Public Safety Texas 2013″, released by the Department of Public Safety (DPS), said to be a “top priority” in severely obstruct the scope and power of Mexican drug organizations.

“The impact of crime cartels is painfully obvious when we look at our neighbors in Mexico, with about 60,000 deaths since 2006 and continuing cases of brutal torture,” he said during the presentation of the report, DPS director Steve McCraw.

The report was based on information and perspectives of law enforcement, gathered from multiple national security agencies.

The report noted that state prison gangs are the second greatest threat of organized crime in Texas.

“Many gangs are now working directly with Mexican cartels, who earn substantial profits from drug trafficking,” he said.

Does Chapo Guzman care about being on Forbes list?

Does he look worried about not being on Forbes list of the richest men?

Does he look worried about not being on Forbes list of the richest men?

Consequently, Guzman’s inclusion in the Forbes list, which suggested a degree of influence over crime in Mexico that a careful analysis did not support, largely contradicted the prevailing trend inside the nation. This will likely be increasingly true going forward, as group’s like Guzman’s Sinaloa Cartel collectively continue to cede market share to a growing number of smaller regional gangs, like the Knights Templar (Caballeros Templarios) or the Independent Cartel of Acapulco.

Furthermore, the revenue structure for Mexican criminal groups have tilted away from the high-margin traffic of cocaine (the activity with the greatest potential to spawn a highly wealthy boss) to lower-margin, labor-intensive practices like kidnapping and extortion, theft and human smuggling.
While Guzman’s inclusion appeared to be aimed at publicity more than it was the result of methodological rigor, the impact of his being placed alongside names like Gates and Slim changed the perceptions of public security in Mexico. Guzman turned into the foremost emblem of Mexican crime, and his wealth and manifest impunity –Guzman escaped from prison in 2001 — was a sign for some that Mexico had little chance of defending itself against such a threat.
This was true despite the lack of evidence to support the estimate of Guzman’s fortune. His partner Ismael “El Mayo” Zambada called the calculation “nonsense” in 2010. More damningly, in 2009, Forbes editor Luisa Kroll offered only unconvincing ramblings as a justification: “There are people that make it their job to be tracking this money trail and we have a Spanish-speaking reporter who spent a lot of time in Mexico and has a lot of sources whether in the Drug Enforcement Agency and separate consultancies that helped him track and get a handle and find the right people to talk to, to track the drug money but because it is such a huge problem, there are definitely a lot of people that are tracking the money that’s flowing through the drugs.”

Nonetheless, for the US media, a billionaire capo became a conveniently sensationalist and simplistic symbol for a hugely complicated situation. The Washington Post, to take but one of many examples, casually referred to Guzman as a “billionaire cartel boss” in 2010.
By way of addressing the exclusion, Forbes explained that, “[Guzman] has to spend more of his money on security and bribes to protect his family, meaning his annual take of the world’s massive cocaine trade … is getting thinner and thinner.”

Such logic is, of course, every bit as unsupported and faulty as were the initial calculations of his worth. Forbes does not back up its assertion with any figure more concrete than an offhand references to “our numbers.” Moreover, even if his profit margins are getting thinner, unless Forbes is actually retracting its prior claims about his accumulated wealth, it should not matter: as long as the margins are positive, he’s still adding to that fortune that was previously calculated at an even $1 billion.
In short, the only logically coherent way for Forbes to pull Guzman from the list would be to explicitly renounce its prior methodology and issue a correction. Unfortunately, the magazine was unwilling to go that far. Nonetheless, insofar as it represents the opening of a more nuanced view of Mexico in general and organized crime in particular, this is a positive step.

This picture shows the Bertillon photographs of Capone made by the US Dept of Justice. His rogue’s gallery number is C 28169’. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

CHICAGO, Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman Loera, leader of the Sinaloa cartel, was billed as the new “public enemy number one” in Chicago, heading the Crime Commission that city created to refer to mobster Al Capone in the decade of the 30s. “Guzman is for narcotics was what Al Capone for beer and whiskey,” he said at a press conference the commission’s vice president, Al Bilek, adding that “compared with ‘El Chapo’, Al Capone look like a fan.” Bilek, with the director in Chicago the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA, in English), Jack Riley Davis, said the announcement as an “extraordinary event” not recorded since 1930. The nongovernmental organization keeps track of crime trends in the city and has already qualified to others as public enemies, but Capone was the only one who had been declared the number one until now.

Davis said Guzman Loera is the main supplier of drugs sold in Chicago or distributed from this city to the rest of America. “his agents work in the Chicago area, the third most populous city in the U.S. , importing vast quantities of marijuana, cocaine and methamphetamine to sell from here across the region, in-turn collecting tens of millions of dollars being smuggled into Mexico.

Meanwhile, Riley, noted that Chicago has been identified as the drug distribution center of the Sinaloa cartel, which has 100,000 members among gang members believed to exist in the city and suburbs. “Although Chicago is two thousand 400 kilometers from Mexico, the cartel is so embedded in the city that police authorities and local and federal agencies are required to act as if they were on the border.

According to the director of the DEA in Chicago, the police of this city have faced organized crime groups since early 1930, and the most notorious was the Italian Mafia. “But they were more ruthless Capone and the Mafia, Mexican traffickers as the Sinaloa cartel are unparalleled … today if we faced traditional organized crime in Chicago against Guzman and his cartel would not be a fight.

In my opinion, “El Chapo” is the new Al Capone in Chicago. ” According to Riley, Guzman Loera’s ability to “corrupt and punish” their opponents, makes him “more powerful than Italian Mafia organized crime ” . He added that if “El Chapo” was arrested in Mexico he could be extradited to Chicago and processed by a federal judge along with other members of the drug gang.

One is Vicente Zambada Niebla, the son of “El Mayo” Zambada, who is awaiting trial since his extradition in March 2010 for allegedly working as a logistics coordinator for the cartel’s operations in Chicago.

With information from EFE / NTX PROFILE “Face cut ” although Alphonse Gabriel Capone was born in Brookyln, New York on January 17, 1899, his parents are natives of Italy. Capone began his criminal career from youth, belonging to the most dangerous gangs of the era, such as “Five Points Gang.”

In the late ’20s and Al Capone topped the list of the FBI’s most wanted because of their “business” of selling alcohol, illegal gambling and prostitution. was known as “Scarface” by an incident at the nightclub Yale’s, where he became drunk and insulted one of the employees, the brother of the girl came to his defense and pulled a knife, cutting his face three times.

Capone led the Mafia in Chicago from 1925 after eliminating all rivals. The most famous crime attributed to him is the “Valentine’s Massacre” occurred on February 14, 1929, when the band ended with Morgan Bug gangster. Capone was arrested in 1931 and sentenced to 11 years in prison in October. He was released in 1939, and died of pneumonia on January 21, 1947.

The security agencies of the Government of Colombia are on alert after detecting the presence of several Mexican citizens, including an alleged nephew of Sinaloa Cartel leader Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman.

According to information released by the electronic portal of the Colombian newspaper El Tiempo, Mexicans have been detected in areas of influence of local criminal groups known as Rastrojos and Urabeños, making the Colombian authorities suspect a potential alliance between that organization ‘El Chapo’ Guzman with South American drug traffickers for trafficking of synthetic drugs.

According to the memo, the alleged nephew of ‘El Chapo’, was not mentioned by name, but reportedly met at an apartment in northern Bogota to coordinate with heads of Rastrojos starting the business of the transfer of synthetic drugs.

In that place, it was noted, that a video was made, and is being reviewed by the authorities. In addition, several members of the band, including a guy nicknamed ‘Pinki’ were captured.

The intention of the Sinaloa Cartel is to have a presence in strategic areas of shipping and cargoes of cocaine output, according to information released at the time.

Colombian security agencies are to follow up on the evidence left by the Mexicans in areas such as Buenaventura, Cali, Urabá, Medellin and Bogota.

The Ombudsman has also received reports in which he speaks about the presence of Mexicans in Buenaventura, who would be checking out of cocaine.

“These people have no legal documents, therefore we believe that fly in and out by plane,” he told an investigator Weather case. Information held by security agencies Colombia, indicates that the meetings between the nephew of ‘Chapo’ Guzman and the heirs of the Rastrojos and Urabeños, dating back months.

For the Rastrojos, the contact would be a cousin of Diego Perez Henao, ‘Diego Stubble’. This family has already been identified, but has no warrants, and within the band is known as ‘Chicken Bobo’, says the note. “He is the person who assumed the military command and drug trafficking by members of the organization who were in the wing of Diego Stubble “refers the researcher.

Urabeños, is the link for Héctor Urdinola, ‘Chico’ or ‘Zarco’, who inherited the band Males and allied with the Urabeños to displace Rastrojos. That fight for routes and territory has generated hundreds of deaths, especially in the Valle del Cauca.
