Mexican drug trafficker Joaquin Guzman Loera, aka "el Chapo Guzman" (C), is presented to the press on Feb. 22, 2014 in Mexico City.
'El Chapo' Is Done, But Mexico's Cartel Wars Certainly Aren’t
And so the curtain falls on the career of a criminal mastermind. On July 17, Sinaloa cartel leader Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman Loera was sentenced to serve life plus 30 years in prison following a February conviction on 10 counts, including engaging in a continuing criminal enterprise, drug trafficking and firearms charges. Shortly after the sentencing hearing, Guzman was sent to the U.S. administrative maximum (ADX) penitentiary in Florence, Colorado. Guzman has a long history of shenanigans in -- and escapes from -- Mexican penitentiaries, but the book is now officially closed on him. Guzman has never been incarcerated in a facility like the ADX in Florence, which is home to some of the most dangerous criminals and terrorists in the world, meaning he has zero chance of either continuing to run his criminal enterprise from the prison or escaping from it. The end to Guzman's illicit activities, however, does

Murder in Mexico in 2019: A Midyear Checkup
Mexican news outlet Milenio on July 1 published its unofficial count of murders in Mexico for the first half of 2019. Milenio counted 2,249 murders in June alone, the highest monthly number the news outlet has recorded since it began keeping its own tally in 2007. In fact, this is the first time that Milenio's numbers have ever surpassed 2,000 for any given month. According to Milenio, the four states with the highest murder counts in June were Jalisco with 206, Mexico with 202, Baja California with 181 and Guanajuato with 176. While these numbers are not official, they still serve as a good barometer by which to measure the state of the country's violence. As expected, Mexico appears well on its way to another record-setting year for murders. Based on the trends we outlined in our 2019 annual cartel forecast, the high levels of violence in Jalisco, Mexico State, Baja

Everyone should take a few simple steps to protect themselves and their families from package bombs.
A Mexican Senator's Escape Points to the Importance of Mail Screening
Mexican senator Citlalli Hernandez Mora was working late in her office May 29 when she opened a package containing a thick red hardback book sent to her as a gift. As she opened the cover of the book, it triggered one of the pipe bombs contained within a hollowed-out compartment inside the weighty tome. Fortunately for the senator, the pipe bomb burst into flame instead of detonating, only burning her lightly and causing some thermal damage to the items on her desk. Criminals, terrorists and mentally disturbed individuals have sometimes sent package bombs. Past bombings such as those carried out by the Unabomber and the March 2018 Austin, Texas, package bomber have demonstrated that not all recipients of package bombs are high-profile individuals. Because of this, everyone should take a few simple steps to protect themselves and their families from package bombs.

Mexico: Lower House Approves Constitutional Reform on Education
The lower house of the Mexican Congress has approved a constitutional reform to effectively end federal oversight of teachers' unions by disbanding the country's National Institute for the Evaluation of Education and replacing it with a new institution that will ostensibly comply with labor guidelines set out in the Mexican Constitution, Milenio reported April 26.

Plaza Garibaldi on Sept. 15, 2018, in Mexico City a day after a shooting there.
Mexico: Cartels Drag Violence Into Tourist Zones With Latest Shooting
The party atmosphere surrounding Mexico's Independence Day celebrations in Mexico City's Garibaldi Plaza was shattered Sept. 14 when a group of three gunmen dressed as mariachis opened fire on a group seated at a restaurant. The hail of pistol and rifle fire killed five people and injured another eight. The apparent target of the attack was Jorge Flores Concha "El Tortas," the leader of a criminal organization known as "La U," or "La Fuerza Antiunion," a group that split from the powerful Union Tepito crime network.

The Federal Police of Mexico patrol near the Puente Grande prison in Zapotlanejo, Jalisco, from which Rafael Caro Quintero was freed on Aug. 9, 2013.
20 Million Reasons for a Cartel Leader in Hiding to Worry
During the wee hours of Aug. 9, 2013, Mexican drug kingpin Rafael Caro Quintero strode out the main entrance of the Puente Grande maximum-security prison. His well-dressed legal team accompanied him as he took in his first breath of air as a free man since 1985. A judge had ruled that he had been improperly tried in the kidnapping, torture and murder of an agent of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration. Caro Quintero had claimed that he left the drug business in 1984, but U.S. prosecutors said he had never stopped. On April 12, 2018, the reward for his capture was raised to $20 million, and he was added to the FBI's list of Ten Most Wanted Fugitives. The U.S. government is clearly paying a lot of attention to a drug kingpin who had been in prison for 28 years. So who is Rafael Caro Quintero and why does he
