$10 Million Dollar Bounty
New and Improved Drug Lord Rises to the Occasion
By: Cristal M Clark
Who here is a fan of Netflix’s Narcos? Well as it turns out in the world of drug cartels, real life and tv are not all that different after all.
Just as El Chapo heads off to prison news started to break introducing the world to one Nemesio Ruben Oseguera-Cervantes or better known by his street name, El Mencho who is reported to be a wee bit more sadistic than good old El Chapo.
Cartels by the way are not well known for sitting down to tea to work out any differences.
It is rumored that El Mencho was once a cop, an avocado grower, likes cock-fighting and happens to be a billionaire?
And now, the worlds most feared drug lord, his mother must be so very proud.
He is rumored to run his cartel in the same manner as a terrorist organization, he is said that he will never go down alive and his expectation is that his men will do the same.
He set up his cartel in Jalisco state around 10 years ago, moves meth, cocaine and heroin all over the world and has since managed to amass billions. In case you are wondering he actually as it turns out, made a name for himself by by dumping 35 bound and tortured bodies, oh yes bound and tortured bodies, onto the very streets of Mexico’s port Veracruz during, well rush hour of course. I see the rational, if you are going to really make a name for yourself, you dump 35 bound and tortured bodies somewhere, but where? Well, it’s best to do it on one of the busiest roads and during rush hour.
Sometimes, these guys totally go for the wow factor and just completely overdo it.
I’m sorry but is the DEA so understaffed that we can only go after one drug lord at a time thus allowing them to become serial killers and also billionaires at the same time?
It’s a legit question.
8 soldiers and a police officer died during a failed raid which had tried to take down the drug lord. Then in retaliation because they just couldn’t let the failed raid go, El Mencho’s men set fire to a number of vehicles and buildings, causing fear, panic and with it devastation that required 10,000 troops being brought in in order to bring the situation under control.
His men killed a man and his young son by detonating sticks of dynamite duct-taped to their bodies a few years ago.
But if you think and of that is the worst of it:
His delightful henchmen also by the way raped, killed and set fire to a 10-year-old girl. They also raped, killed and set on fire the wrong 10-year old girl, because they thought the girl they raped, killed and set on fire was the daughter of a rival.
She in fact was not.
Maybe not so great at identifying potential rivals and family members of said rivals.
The DEA lists him as it’s most wanted and has a $10 million bounty on his head if anyone is interested, but be forewarned, it is my understanding that 1. He will not go down without a fight and 2. It is rumored that his army of henchmen is in the thousands.
