The Fall of El Chapo (True Crime Documentary) | Real Stories 4.5
Angus Macqueen and Guillermo Galdos attempt what the combined forces of the US and Mexican governments failed to do for 13 years – to track down Joaquin Guzman, one of the most wanted men in the world.

Guzman, known as ‘El Chapo’ or ‘Shorty’ was head of the most powerful drugs cartel in history. To some, he is a revolutionary hero and a latter-day Robin Hood, the powerful peasant who looks after his people. To others, he is Public Enemy No. 1, the first since Al Capone, on the run for over a decade. Forbes Magazine has labelled him one of the richest and most powerful men on earth. All this time over 80,000 mexicans have been murdered.

The filmmakers quixotic journey, fuelled by the specially composed songs of Jackson Scott, takes them from the streets of Chicago into his forbidden heartland in the Mexican Golden Triangle, telling his astonishing life story along the way.

The film ends up in a world where few outsiders have ever been and basic truths behind the “war on drugs” emerge as they get ever closer to this “legendary” figure.

One down and 10, 000 take his place! This is progress! Word to the wise: Any time a nation launches a media blitze with *"A WAR ON..."* anything, you can be guaranteed "the war" is never-ending and the problem will get worse👍🏻

Imagine having billions of dollars and being stuck in prison. If it was me I would probably kill myself, knowing that I have billions of dollars and I can't use any of it because I am stuck in a 6x10 concrete prison cell for 23 out of 24 hours a day in a Federal ADX Florence SuperMax prison, where you only get let out for 1 hour everyday to walk around in a metal cage that's just a little bit bigger then your own prison cell. But I guess he deserves to be there after all the murders this guy has ordered and committed, plus all the ruined lives and the deaths his drugs have caused. It's crazy how much pain one man can cause to other families.
