Gangster Makes The Forbes List


The new school Pablo Escobar from Mexico has clocked in at number 701 on Forbes’ list of richest people in the world.

Some 7,000 people have been killed in drug violence across Mexico since the start of last year as rival gangs fight each other and Mexican security forces. Guzman’s enforcers from the Sinaloa cartel are among the most vicious hitmen.

Forbes said Mexican and Colombian traffickers laundered between $18 billion and $39 billion in proceeds from wholesale drugs shipments to the United States in 2008.

Guzman and his operation likely grossed 20 percent of that — enough for him to have pocketed $1 billion over his career and earn a spot on the billionaire’s list for the first time.

Makes sense to me. Donald Trump and them are all crooks too.
