More evidence the Mexican drug cartels are setting up shop in Chicago, as the Chicago Crime Commission dusts off its “PUBLIC ENEMY #1″ title and bestows it on Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman.
El Chapo apparently means short man and at 5′ 6″ he’s hardly a towering man, but he’s the head Mexican in charge of the Sinaloa cartel.
We’re not exactly sure why he’s so interested in Chicago, other than it must be a nice source of revenue from the Obama voters therein.
In any event, it’s more evidence that Chicago isn’t safe, something we at Guns Save Life have been telling folks for years.
If Guzman really has set up shop, then it’s just a matter of time until his “associates” are settling scores and killing people left and right, just as they do just south of the Rio Grande.
Chicago’s new Public Enemy No. 1: ‘El Chapo’
(CNN) — The Chicago Crime Commission named a new Public Enemy No. 1 on Thursday, a designation originally crafted for Al Capone. The new holder of this dubious distinction, however, is not American nor believed to be in the United States. He is Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, the infamous Mexican drug lord who is Chicago’s most wanted because his Sinaloa cartel supplies a majority of the narcotics in the city.
Not since Capone “has any criminal deserved this title more than Joaquin Guzman,” commission President J.R. Davis said in a news release. “Guzman is the major supplier of narcotics to Chicago. His agents are working in the Chicago area importing vast quantities of drugs for sale throughout the Chicago region and collecting and sending to Mexico tens of millions of dollars in drug money.”
Here’s what we can look forward to:
