A guy who was in charge of the most powerful drug trafficking organization in Puerto Rico that also made 90% of the cocaine in Puerto Rico, was imprisoned for 209 years for “murder and illegal weapon possession” in 1999 - for one, he is a “drug lord” yet he wasn’t even caught trafficking drugs, and secondly no, he does not live hundreds of years, but today’s justice system is so backwards that they come up with such crazy sentences. But he escaped by walking “out of the prison's front gates after presenting the guards with a falsified release order” and after that he obtained several fake identities, even had plastic surgeries, and continued drug trafficking for some 10 more years.
“Between 1993 and 2000, 1.000 police officers in Puerto Rico lost their jobs from the department due to criminal charges.” - and police corruption continues in the present in Puerto Rico. (source)
A New York drug lord was making some $4 million a week from drug trafficking at one point and he hired another American from Asia that was from the US military to help him with getting more drugs from Asia. This guy used soldiers to procure drugs and then shipped them back hidden inside coffins of deceased soldiers many claim, even inside the body bags and the dead bodies themselves. American “respect” for veteran heroes right there! When you play the Game of Trade you cannot afford to have “morals” or else you lose.
