"El Chapo" is Named Chicago's Public Enemy "Number One" and Obama Wants a Stable Mexico


A drug kingpin in Mexico who has never set foot in Chicago has been named the city's new Public Enemy No. 1 - the same notorious label assigned to Al Capone at the height of the Prohibition-era gang wars. Chicago Tribune

The Chicago Crime Commission considers Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman even more menacing than Capone because he's the leader of the Sinaloa cartel, which supplies most of the narcotics sold in the city.


"What Al Capone was to beer and whiskey during Prohibition, Guzman is to narcotics," said Art Bilek, the commission's executive vice president. "Of the two, Guzman is by far the greater threat. ... And he has more power and financial capability than Capone ever dreamed of."

The commission - a non-government body that tracks city crime trends - designated Capone Public Enemy No. 1 in 1930. It has declared other outlaws public enemies, but Capone was the only one deemed No. 1. Until now.

Guzman is thought to be holed up in a mountain hideaway in western Mexico, but he ought to be treated as a local Chicago crime boss for the havoc his cartel creates in the nation's third-largest city, said Jack Riley, of the Drug Enforcement Administration, which joined the commission in affixing the title to Guzman.
The point of singling out Guzman was to inspire more public support for going after him, Bilek said
.
"Ninety-nine percent of the people in the United States have never heard of this man," he said. "Concerted action ... must be taken now against Guzman before he establishes a bigger network and a bigger empire in the United States."

Capone based his bootlegging and other criminal enterprises in Chicago during Prohibition, when it was illegal to make or sell alcohol in the U.S. He eventually went to prison for income tax evasion, but he gained the greatest notoriety for the 1929 St. Valentine's Day Massacre that left seven rivals dead.

Yet Riley says Guzman - whose nickname means "shorty" in Spanish - is more ruthless than Capone, whose nickname was "Scarface."

"If I was to put those two guys in a ring, El Chapo would eat that guy (Capone) alive," Riley told The Associated Press in a recent interview at his office, pointing at pictures of the men.
Riley described Chicago as one of Sinaloa's most important cities, not only as a final destination for drugs but as a hub to distribute them across the U.S."This is where Guzman turns his drugs into money," he said.

Mexican cartels that ship drugs to Chicago are rarely directly linked to slayings. But Bilek said Thursday that cartel-led trafficking is an underlying cause of territorial battles between street gangs that are blamed for rising homicide rates.

"He virtually has his fingerprints on the guns that are killing the children of this city," Bilek told a news conference.

Guzman, who has been on the run since escaping from a Mexican prison in a laundry cart in 2001, is one of the world's most dangerous and most wanted fugitives. He's also one of the richest: Forbes magazine has estimated his fortune at $1 billion.

Now in his mid-50s, Guzman has been indicted on federal trafficking charges in Chicago and, if he is ever captured alive, U.S. officials want him extradited here to face trial. The U.S. government has offered a $5 million reward for his capture."His time is coming," Riley said. "I can't wait for that day."

It was only a coincidence, Bilek said Thursday, that the announcement naming Guzman Public Enemy No. 1 came on the anniversary of the St. Valentine's Day Massacre, which raised public pressure to capture Capone.

Within two years of being designated Public Enemy No. 1 in 1930, Capone had been captured, convicted and imprisoned.

With the same label now attached to Guzman, Bilek said, "we hope the same thing will happen to him."
Obama Wants a Stable Mexico

WASHINGTON. - President Barack Obama urged the next government to collaborate with Mexican security because he believes that having a stable neighbor gives greater assurance to the United States. Therefore and according to the State Department, maintaining support for Mexico drug war is key to strengthening the bilateral relationship and to contribute to the country's stability. "A stable Mexico will help the national security of the United States, will unleash the potential of economic growth and protect citizens along our shared border.  President Barack Obama submitted a budget request  to Congress yesterday, which includes a game plan that will go to the Mexico "Application of FY2013 (for its acronym in English fiscal year 2013), to support our relationship with the new Mexican administration after the 2012 elections.

U.S. will continue its partnership with Mexico and expand mutual cooperation under the Obama Administration's approach around the four pillars of the Merida Initiative to address the security risks of drug trafficking, violent crime, and the capacities of the rule of law in Mexico,  "Specifically, he said, the funding of ESF (Economic Support Fund) will focus on reforms to strengthen and institutionalize offenders, improve the rule of law, respect for human rights and to build strong and resilient communities capable of withstanding pressures of crime and violence.

Similarly, it specifies that programs funded by the Bureau of Narcotics and Law Enforcement, State Department will focus on developing institutions of law enforcement through training, technical assistance and equipment purchases. "Programs continue to provide assistance to federal criminal justice institutions, including institutions of police, prosecutors, judicial and prison," says the proposal. Meanwhile, the drug czar's office in the White House, Gil Kerlikowske, announced that within the proposed budget for health programs for addiction and drug use in the United States,  requested an additional $ 390 million to reach a grand total of more than 10 billion dollars. "America is committed to reducing drug use, and we have made significant progress. We have a responsibility to reduce drug demand.It is a fact that the use of illegal drugs fuels the crime, violence, addiction and instability throughout the nation and the hemisphere," said the drug Czar Gil Kerlikowske.

  1. They kind of make Norteamericanis sound clueless. Personally, I think a higher percentage of Americans have heard of Joaquin El Chapo Guzman.

  2. Don't underestimate the ignorance of North Americans when it comes to the drug war. Our media hardly reports anything on it.

    Funny though that Chicago is going after El Chapo when they can't even control the crime and violence in their own city.

  5. I'd be fine if all cities made him public enemy numero one-now that I know who he is. They are right. He is bad. But Forbes Magazine might struggle with listing 'Public Enemy Numero Uno on their billionaires list every year. Or not? Probably not. They are all about greed and exploiting greed.

    Smuggling Suspect Linked to Corrupt Lawmen

    HIDALGO COUNTY - A suspect arrested last week during a raid near San Carlos may have been working with corrupt lawmen, federal records show.

    A criminal complaint shows Fernando Guerra Sr., 48, of Edinburg, is suspected of leading a drug-trafficking organization. He is accused of stealing from rival groups and working with corrupt lawmen to further his criminal enterprise.

    Guerra and his son Fernando Guerra Jr. were arrested during a raid Thursday at a home north of San Carlos. A federal judge ordered them held without bond.

    Officials said the pair had been under investigation since 2012.

    The complaint shows the elder Guerra met with an informant in September. They reportedly planned to have a shipment of cocaine worth more than $7 million delivered to them. The father and son planned to have the corrupt lawmen intercept the load. The officers would give part of the load to the suspects.

    The federal records do not show which law enforcement agency employed the corrupt officers.

  10. Harris County Constable Confirms Theft of License Plate

    Posted: Feb 13, 2013 7:02 PM

    Updated: Feb 13, 2013 11:56 PM

    WESLACO - A Harris County constable's office official confirmed that the license plate found on a cloned police vehicle in Falfurrias was stolen from one of their cruisers.

    The cloned police SUV was seized two weeks ago. The SUV was equipped with police lights and had a real law enforcement license plate. The plate was stolen in Houston, officials said.

    "I believe it showed up missing, we don't know what happened, we don't know how it ended up that way," Harris County Precinct 6 Deputy Constable Tom Entwistle said.

    Entwistle would not say when the plate was stolen. He said the case is under investigation.

    Bond Revoked for Ex-Panama Unit Member


    Posted: Feb 14, 2013 11:37 AM

    Updated: Feb 14, 2013 12:12 PM

    MCALLEN - A former narcotics officer is heading to jail, after his bond was revoked. Fabian Rodriguez is one of four members of the now-defunct Panama Unit accused of helping escort drug loads.

    A federal judge ruled Rodriguez violated a condition of release by indirectly sending a message to co-defendant, Jonathan Trevino. During a hearing, it was also revealed that Rodriguez had direct contact with a co-defendant. The judge didn't go into details.

    We learned that information will be shared during a hearing scheduled next week.

    Meanwhile, the other people facing charges in the case are still out on bond.

I know who chapo is and capone was not a joke in his day he had alot of people killed.not all americans are on drugs.if they depended on people like me to buy their product they would all be on food stamps as they would make no money off me. If they just sold dope i dont think anyone would really care its the killings that have got to stop.i seen a guy so high on meth yesterday he literally couldnt stand still it was nauseating i just looked at him and thought thats why i will never do that shit.it aint the gvts messages it was looking at people like that and thinking who the hell wants to be awake for a week with sores on them YUCK.thats what makes me not buy anything from a dope dealer

  23. This is a dumb PR stunt and won't change anything.
    I have a feeling that both the US and Mexican governments have a good idea where Chapo is.
    Ironic that Mexico is a country with a 1.2 Trillion dollar economy and a member of G-20, yet they can't catch some of these big capos and have lost control of their territory.

  26. The U.S government needs drug traffickers to get money from them. That's why everytime they catch a big timer they always want money from them. Look at osiel Cardenas from the Gulf cartel and 1 of the arellano Felix brothers, they had to pay the U.S $50 million dollars that's why they need drug traffickers
