There are brave Mexicans.

El Chapo is in a Manhattan Federal MCC and has been for a while. Hundreds of judges, attorneys and journalists were murdered during the reign of Pablo Escobar in Colombia. They have real judges, attorneys, and journalists.

When Mexicans buy piñatas that look like El Chappo rather than Trump. Mexico will be on its way to being a better place.

William, I see "Free Chapo" t-shirts for sale in San Diego. Disgusting. Reminds me of the t-shirts, "Charlie Don't Dance" that were sold a couple decades ago. Both Chapo and Manson are little weasel, losers.
