Oh look, they did tape El Chapo’s exit:
When prisoners manage to tunnel out of their confinement, their tunnels are rudimentary, dangerous, and short. This tunnel resembles those that cross the US-Mexico border, or those in Gaza leading into southern Israel. It’s clear that a number of people tunneled in to get Guzman out, and those people spent a lot of money to do so. Guzman wasn’t going to be able to install electricity and ventilation, after all.
Indeed, the LA Times calls the tunnel “a minor engineering masterpiece“.
Another corrido names him King of the Tunnel,
El gobierno mexicano
muy fácil es de comprarlo
[It’s very easy to buy off the Mexican government]
The Mexican government set a $3.8million reward on El Chapo’s capture. What was the old saying, closing the stable door after the horse has bolted?
