(UPDATED 2-8-2017) Documentary: The Rise And Fall Of El Chapo

Originally Aired (July 24, 2016). The History Channel. Updated February 8, 2017.

The kingpin of kingpins, Guzman had the sway to settle disputes with other drug traffickers. In Chicago, his distribution center for the U.S., he cast a long shadow: Few dared cheat the Sinaloa cartel.

As head of the Sinaloa cartel, Mexico’s largest, Guzman was a ruthless enforcer of discipline, Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman employed violence to protect his distribution  routes and intimidate rivals. (Warning: Graphic 18+).

The kingpin of kingpins, Guzman had the sway to settle disputes with other drug traffickers. In Chicago, his distribution center for the U.S., he cast a long shadow: Few dared cheat the Sinaloa cartel.

The Rise and Fall of El Chapo: Killer, drug smuggler, folk hero, Houdini of jailhouse escapes–the legend “El Chapo” is well-known. But now this two-hour documentary special reveals an unprecedented look at the man behind the myth and how his international drug cartel impacts us right here at home.

Last year the U.S. and Mexican authorities hailed the capture of Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman in the Pacific coast town of Mazatlan as a major victory in their war on drugs. A year later the power vacuum caused by his absence is fueling chaos on the streets of Chicago and Ciudad Juárez, across the border from El Paso.

Draw your own conclusion about who had a hand in helping El Chapo go free in 2015, and who benefited from his escape.

UPDATE: February 8, 2017. Brooklyn, New York, USA.
Federal authorities announced Friday that Joaquin Archivaldo Guzman Loera, known by various aliases including, “El Chapo,” will face charges filed in Brooklyn, New York, following his extradition to the United States from Mexico.

Guzman Loera arrived in New York late Thursday under heavy escort by special agents with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and other authorities.
