What Mexican federal agents were doing when they should've been monitoring El Chapo's prison cell

Borderland Beat posted by DD republished from Business Insider

DD;  While Pena Nieto on his jet en route to France for a state visit just continued  playing dominoes (he was winning - you can't blame him)  when he was informed of Chapo's escape.   The guards were playing solitaire were playing solitaire on their computer monitors that were supposed to be focused  on Chapo' cell.  (you have to pass the time somehow).

 While the world's most notorious drug lord calmly stood up and slipped out of one of Mexico's maximum-security prisons, the two federal agents responsible for monitoring surveillance footage from his cell played solitaire.

Mexican Center for Investigation and National Security (CISEN) agents Juan Carlos Sánchez Garcia and José Daniel Aureoles Tabares were assigned to supervise the every move of Sinaloa cartel boss Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzmán while he was detained in Altiplano prison.


During a preliminary investigation, both agents gave statements saying that on July 11 at 8:48 p.m., four minutes before Guzmán escaped through a perfectly placed hole in the blind spot of a lone security camera in his L-shaped cell, their computer screens were frozen and they both decided to restart their computers, El Universal reports

The duo also stated they made nearly 30 phone calls to alert officials of Guzmán's disapperance, to which, no one answered.
 
 The judge presiding over the case felt the synchronous flight of Guzmán and the shutdown of federal monitoring systems was unconvincing and therefore called in a technical expert to give testimony.

According to El Universal, the technical expert concluded that it was impossible for security footage to freeze onscreen as agents Juan Carlos Sánchez Garcia and José Daniel Aureoles Tabares claimed. The same expert found that the agents only made three phone calls to prison staff.

A still from the security camera footage from the office where the federal agents were watching Guzmán purports to show that multiple computer screens were turned off and the agents were playing Solitare, El Universal reports

It took prison officials a full 18 minutes to reach Guzmán's cell after finally noticing his escape and it took nearly 3 hours to initiate "code red" which issues an alert to further lock down the prison, contact the Mexican military, and close the nearby airport in Toluca.
 
Earlier this month, four public officials were charged for their suspected roles in the brazen escape of Guzmán, bringing the total number of officials involved to 20, InSight Crime reports.

Amid these charges, Mexico's interior ministry has been accused of hiding a video with sounds of power tools and digging, proving that Altiplano prison staff knew of Guzmán's planned escape, EFE Agencia reports.

Currently, the only footage released by the Mexican government is a silent clip of Guzmán pacing around his prison cell before disappearing into his custom-built tunnel. However, El Proceso, a weekly Mexican news magazine, reported that an internal document from the Prosecutor General of the Republic (PGR) revealed the existence of security-camera footage with audio.

 According to Proceso, "the blows of metal against concrete are heard in Guzmán's cell minutes before he disappeared from view of the security camera."
 
While the response to Guzmán's escape was mishandled on a number of levels within the prison, Mexico's president Enrique Peña Nieto, en route to a state visit in France, continued to play dominos after learning of the drug kingpins' jailbreak.
When Peña Nieto's staff asked what they should do for the remainder of the flight he responded, "We are going to finish," pointing to the dominoes. He then won with fours.



DD; It seems like a big coincidence that some the 13 prisoners who were hurriedly extradited to the US past week were on the same cell block as Chapo and would have heard the construction noises that EFE Agencia reported were picked up on the cameras that had audio.

EFE :
" the recording implicates other staff at Altiplano I, as well as personnel with the national prison system, the Center for Research and National Security, or Cisen, and the National Security Commission, adding that "clearly their complicity was what enabled the escape."

"The video is particularly important because it will reveal the extent to which organized crime has penetrated all levels of the prison system and "even all organs of Mexican national security."

  3. The government owns the drug traffic in Mexico . Chapo had his organization tuned to where they have to have him . If it weren't so he would dead and replaced . Mexico as a republic is run by criminals. More so than most countries .

    1. Ever hear about those that live in glass houses? Also, if you really think Mexico is more corrupt "than most countries" you need to study some geography, then do some reading and traveling.

      Delete
    2. Nothing u learn in Geography can map out "who is the most corrupt country?" I think reading may give u an idea but possibly a one sided opinion where the US is the good guy in all of it......or u can just keep reading here where things seem fair.........traveling? Maybe.....depends on what type of person u r I guess? Idk but I'm sure to say that Mexico may very well be the most corrupted govt for sure but as a country meaning the average everyday people, not the worst.

    2. Why bring the USA into this?! Stop pointing fingers and admit it Mexico is shit. I am Mexican my self but damn lets be real Mexico does not know how to hide there crooked ways. That's the difference so stop saying well the usa does this and that! Who gives a shit!? At least the USA has a decent structure of life, decent roads, hospitals. Half of Mexico till this day has no electricity that's what we should worry about! Not about what the USA does!

    3. What does Obama getting Osama have to do with Mexico? Nothing. It's just spin to deviate from the topic at hand. Mexico is corrupt as hell. This coming from someone who lives there. Everyone wants to point fingers elsewhere, but the problem starts at home. For way too long has there been corruption - criminals and politicians working hand-in-hand. It will continue, many more millions are to be made.

      Chapo escaping from the so called super max Mexican fortress, just shows what kind of clown show the Mexican government is running inside their own prisons.

    3. Mexican gov has to stop expecting their employees wages to be subsidized by bribes and step up to the plate and come into the 1st world.My 2 cents worth.You are not a poor country.You have many resources and manufacturing.You have the means.It dosent have to be this way but you chose it to be this way.{Yes I know Im talking to the Mexican government}....from 1 gov employee[Canada] to another[Mexico].

    4. Prison guards take tips, and MUST share with the warden and then all the hyerarchy, so the more tips are there, the less then want to tip the apple cart...
      Tips are not kickback or bribes...

      Delete
    5. Call it what you want even though at times it can be a fine line but the wages are expected to be subsidized somewhere else.Do gov employees get a cost of living increase based on inflation?I doubt it.They seem to be expected to steal or pay for their jobs like the cops in DF.

  13. No matter what, this case seems like a simple "Plata o Plomo" deal! Do you think the cartel that does not kill innocents (CDS), would have kept its reputation if even one jail guard decided to go to the Americans to snitch about Chapos jail break? Fuck No! CDS and Chapo would have had the jailers wife, brothers, uncles and even adolescent kids killed just for blowing his escape! I'm sure lots of nuthuggers will not dare to admit that but its the damn truth! Every cartel kills innocents when the BOSS tells them too!

    --all under the watchful eyes of the UN and the US, nafta, ttp, UK, EU, DDHH and all the other letter soups in the world, that have sold out or been bought by the mighty high and powerful, like the US and co...
    The casualties and collateral damages of the globalization of the already round world are being contributed by the poorest, and the success of the enterprise will be their contribution, they will reap nothing but more bullshit, like the mexican governing narco-mierdocracia is feeding us once more to make us forget narvarte, tlatlaya, ayotzinapa, pemex, san fernando, tijuana, sinaloa, cd juareeez, coahuila, atenco, Aguas blancas, el charco, los zetas, los Capulina twins, peña nieto, pemex...etc etc, etc, etc by blaming a few narcos or prison guards for mexico's ills...
