that's because they don't want to get killed if they put up resistance or fight back.. they might as well get arrested, go to jail, and then let their friends or connections bail them out or find them a way out in a couple of days.. they know they'll be back to freedom, alive in a matter of days, so why resist and risk getting hurt or killed?? sad, but true

Something definitely does not add up. These walking - talking human t-u-r-d-s aren't simply going to roll over and surrender their multi-billion dollar industries. Me smells a double cross. They'll probably extradited to the US, sentenced, spend a year in federal prison and then be granted a pardon by Obama before he leaves office and then will grant them citizenship.

Why should they worry if they're busted?

The fix is firmly in at all levels of government so they know they'll be taken care of once in custody....from the arrest through the trial and all the stops in between.

The only thing they may have to fear is getting extradited to the US..but then they stand a fair chance of getting off up here also, because they can hire top lawyers.

I mentioned this on the last post...I find it rather suspicious that time after time "capos" and "underlings" were being caught. In my opinion something else is creeping in and it's gonna be a big surprise, and not a good one. Any one with common sense could and would have questioned this movement. Duh, it's not rocket science people! Like the saying, "If it's too good to be true, it probably is." New leaders are probably in place, waiting to take orders from the old guard in prison, more control inside and out. The corruption is too vast to stop at this rate...smells funny!

Now why are you trying to pin your homoerotic fantasies on me? There is no way I would "eat" you. Again, go take your meds, put your helmet on tight, and go wait for the little yellow bus to arrive to take you to your "special place".

The safest place for the capos is probably the prison right now. They know that they will be out once the drug war is over and then they just start again. Their money is for sure in a safe place such that no Government can touch it.

The Mexican Govt. is on the side of El Chapo, they are doing everything in their power to capture the rival gangs and open the way for El Chapo. You need somebody to be in control and El Chapo was choosen (maybe because he is realted to president Calderon) but it is very strange that most of the
big fish caught are rivals of Chapo. So yes I think even the CIA is helping to open the way for
el Chapo because el Chapo will be the leader and the US and Mexican govts will get their cut, this is a multibillion industry do you think govts don't want their share? I scratch your back and you scratch mine...it's as simple as that.

Right on target-They accumulated so much money, its time to take a break, and stay put for a while in hotel jail. Surrendering, to stay alive, afterall they want to enjoy the money when released.

Seems like a big setup-After all the coruption,they decided to give up and stay alive.Pay their way out of prison and perhaps,move to another country. They even smile at the cameras, Look at la Barbie'

Agree.

They will just have their people to explain it to the judge plata or lead. Then a strong message will be sent. Picture of their child, wife/husband, parent, brother/sister at a vulnerable place. They may even go take a picture of their houses and show it to the judge. A payoff or reduced sentence a year down the road because of lost paperwork. Better yet lavish living in the prison. Guards can be bought off or threatened in the same manner.
