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.

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.”
