Musician writes song about 'El Chapo's' escape
I don't know about this. El Chapo is said to be responsible for torturing and murdering hundreds of innocent people, including children. I have a hard time seeing El Chapo as a hero, but everyone's entitled to their opinion and this guy sings about his.

Not exactly an impressive song, but it is cute how they use a Sousaphone in some of the songs. As for El Chapo, he's like any outlaw, there are those who will admire him despite the horrific deeds perpetrated by his drug cartel. Torturing and murdering children isn't something that should be admired, but somehow some people are able to overlook that and see only admirable traits in this guy.

Mexican factory cashes in on 'El Chapo' craze
Just in time for Halloween. Apparently this will be a popular costume in Mexico, but Guzman is still relatively unknown here in the USA for the most part so don't expect to see a bunch of little El Chapos at your door begging for candy later on this month.

I hope there aren't any parents on the north side of the border who would allow their children to dress up as a drug lord who is responsible for countless brutal murders. I don't think I could bring myself to actually give candy to a child dressed up in such a costume. I think I have a good sense of humor, but I wouldn't give candy to a child dressed up as Hitler either. There are just some lines you don't cross.

I plan on shooting any cretin that comes to my door dressed as a drug lord, Mexican or otherwise. I'm just not putting up with that bullshit! Actually now that I think about it, I won't be shooting anyone since I'll be at a party that night, but I'll definitely punch any idiot who comes to the party dressed up as El Crapo!

'El Chapo's' latest escape
Close call for the drug lord on the run. Authorities say he may have been injured, but locals have his back.

Is 'El Chapo' hiding in the U.S.?
More on the notorious bandito from down south and believe it or not he could be hiding in the United States. Better hide your Fritos!

The heirs to 'El Chapo's' drug empire?
The Sinaloa drug cartel is running out of leaders. Authorities are capturing them one by one, but there's always someone eager to fill a power vacuum.

If only we could get Russia to take care of Sinaloa drug cartel. Then something would actually get done. Between Mexico and the USA the problem just keeps on getting worse. Both countries are ineffective at combating terrorism and criminals who use terroristic methods to intimidate the public.

El Chapo Had A Lot of Sex in Maximum Security Prison
It sounds like this guy had it better in prison than most people have outside prison and he still decided to split the scene. I wonder what his day to day life is like right now with all the federales out looking for him.
