Inside El Chapo’s Escape Tunnel

Infamous drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, who daringly escaped prison on July 11, utilized a tunnel leading from the only “supermax” maximum-security prison in Mexico, where he’d been held. At least that’s the explanation Mexican authorities have given as to how the leader of the Sinaloa cartel escaped prison for the second time.

In the aftermath of the escape, VICE News went to Almoloya de Juarez to inspect the exit of the tunnel that “El Chapo” allegedly used, and spoke with an activist and former inmate of Altiplano prison who claims to have discovered flaws in the authorities’ version of events.

  1. I think how prison works is stupid. Treating these people (yes their people) like this is only going to make them want to brake the law for revenge. Prison should punishing people, but also focus on helping them be better people and want to get better. Not just humiliate them and allow them to be rapped by other prison inmates.

  2. Girl: Babe come over
    El Chapo: I can't, im locked up in maximum security
    Girl: My parent's aren't home
    El Chapo: "Breaking news, Mexican drug lord, El Chapo escapes jail"

  3. If I was a cop it would take AT LEAST £100k for me to turn a blind eye on an escapee, although I would demand 500K – 1M if the escapee would pay it

  5. EL CHAPO is only the frontman-the fall guy, as it's his bankers/lawfirms that RUN THE REAL SHOW-along with the corrupt politicians, and the legal organized distribution network that is run by a billionaire in paris!hallo BLACKHATS, Q)The FBI/CIA/MI5/MI6 make such a big deal about thefts committed by hackers globally, yet they turn a blind eye to corrupt lawfirms/judges who over decades steal victim's identities, manipulate whole lives by even abusing the UK LAND REGISTRY, who's corrupt staff aid/abet the continued abuse, as I am a victim of all this which has been reported to the MINISTRY OF JUSTICE, as this criminal network have continuously hacked all my emails, my phone, illegally monitored my financial transactions, they send people to stalk me, bribe judges to make a mockery of the UK RULE OF LAW(I feel sorry for julian Assange as he's being played by so many lawfirms to milk his 'talent' dry by stalking)also used mobile technology to imitate the numbers of the UK LAND REGISTRY/banks these conmen said they were calling from! +even sent an imposter to pose as the head of the UK Land legal team to a recent court case I had vs them!
