Mexican authorities began taking down high ranked members of the Sinaloa Cartel including two of Guzman’s main associates. On February 22, 2014, the world’s most wanted man had also been captured. Although the biggest drug lord has been captured, the crime and violence left behind cannot be forgotten.
Joaquin Guzman best known as “El Chapo” is the world's greatest drug lord. He has been captured three times and has been able to escape twice, once in a laundry basket and the second time he managed to escaped in an underground tunnel built in his shower cell. He was recently recaptured after being fugitive for about six months. Joaquin entered the drug business as a teenager and later became in charge of the Sinaloa cartel. “He shops and ships by some estimates more than half of all the cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine and marijuana that come into the United States”(Penn).

Thesis Statement: How Joaquín Guzmán Loera became a mythical figure in Mexico, both a narco folk hero and a villain
Why is it that many Mexicans and, in particular, Sinaloenses (Mexican’s that originate from the state of sinaloa) mystify the figure of Chapo Guzman? Why a high percentage of them resented his capture and celebrated his escape? In a recent survey that was conducted by Univision, they asked Sinaloenses; "With which character would you associate el Chapo with?” and the vast majority responded with Pancho Villa. How can one forget that the organization led by this Capo has been the most important and the most dangerous country to globalize the sale of marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine and heroin? His cartel occupies at least a 30% of the drug trafficking in Mexico and "came to dominate the global market for synthetic drugs".

1. Yes there is a legal problem with Chicita’s system. Under the Can-SPAM statutes one of the condition is that “Must offer an opt-out system permitting the recipient to unsubscribe (and must honor those requests promptly). It violates this by only allowing the recipient to not be tracked for 10 days before resuming tracking. It also violates the CFAA laws (accessing a computer without authorization and obtaining information from it) and would be considered hacking since it resumes gathering information (gaining unauthorized access to a computer system). Here is also an ethical concern since it does not disclose the 10 day limitation on the opt-out option when it resumes tracking. The Life Principles would be lying and stealing. By misrepresenting the opt-out button would be considered lying and stealing would be gathering tracking information (depending on the tracking parameters) from an unknowing consumers.
