  1. Gday, what about the fella Mr. Miguel Caro Quintero?

  2. It's been long said that much of the resort development on South Padre Island, in deep South Texas, is cartel owned, much like Miami.

    1. I have a few friends from Mexico that own property out there on SPI. Its an awesome place to be!

  3. Who cares who they are
    Blood Money they know their money comes from screw them
    make me sick to think they are no better then their father

    1. Take a chill pill feller as you shouldn't get sick about the things other people do with their lives! You need to learn how to cage your rage Pinky

    2. I don’t feel it as necessary to be harsh on the kids for the simple fact of who their dad is. Even if they don’t want the money I’m sure it’s an offer they can’t refuse cu come on. But the judgement comes when by their choices. I haven’t read this article yet but the chapitos and zambadas chose on being scum like their pops.

    3. 10:27, agreed. I have a friend that is a close relative of RCQ... Nothing to do with the family business, yet because they know this person is related she gets special treatment in GDL anywhere she goes,

  4. I feel like I'm reading a narco manta denouncing rival cartel members no pun intended

  5. The Kennedy's came from dirty money! Who says anything about them?

    1. @11:12pm actually people have been saying things about the Kennedy's for decades now....where have you been?...

  6. There's a lot " fine" people scatter all over the world that got so much blood money on their hands do they make you sick too 9:02? Or is just the mexican blood money that gives you the aches,

    1. Funny you bring up a Completly different family "This" story is NOT about Kennedys
      Yes it bothers me
      My own family has blood money
      I dont use EVER

      they act like big shots because they live in big houses fancy cars beach properites
      Nope I make my own money
      knowing Ididnt do wrong to get it

      Its all up to each person
      if they think its fine Great
      but for me Nope
      Lisitiening to you guys sounds like you would take that money , and do anything to have the money Not I
      its a personal thing
      so what why argue
      you dont care how you make it or come by it I do

      I think of that child that was abused or that innocent kid walking to school or mother or father working hard

      I am not in the drug game
      so why get your panties in a twist Its my choice my Morals

  7. They will end up dead its matter of time....

    1. They live in Jalisco, it’s civilized there.

    2. Mayo, RCQ, and Mencho have an understanding and work together. Thats why nothing happens to the children. People that think Mencho is afraid of Mayo and vise versa dont know that RCQ is associates with Mencho. GDL is safe for all.

    3. 4:22 if your not a drug dealer and you mind your own business its safe. Dont be acting a foul in GDL.

  8. Quintero’s , Páez, Caros (not RCQ) Líneas, Rusos, CJNG, and a few more clans in Durango, Sinaloa, Mexicali, Baja California, Sonora SLRC VS Chapós

    1. tengo la misma impresion la faccion de los quinteros a de ser la de el chapo trini el cadete. juanjose gil ect y no con la de rafa.

    2. @1:15 Wonder how hard it is for people to believe that the Caros are not operating at least as advidsors and diplomatic links between groups. Caro wasn't released by PRI out of the blue for no reason my friend.

    3. @1:15 se les están juntando muchos grupos en contra a los hijos del Chapo/GN/Salazares, no creo que puedan contra tantas mafias

    4. @11:04 -- finally someone with some common sense. Last I heard, and from a good source, this is how the CQ family is operating, brokering deals, advising. You're right; RCQ got out because of something that he was needed for. Whether that is still the case or not, then who knows.


    5. 1104 y luego el bibuyo pa que lo quieres? Y por eso la familia chambea.
