Mexican authorities captured el Chapo Guzmán, the most notorious drug lord in Mexico, on February 22nd, 2014. The news spread like wildfire. I was watching the news on Univision with my dad the next day and every 15 minutes there was a breaking news: “El Chapo is set to be tried in the United States– Mexico’s President congratulates the officers in their daring operation– Is it the real El Chapo they captured?” or Twitter images on television of his sons tweeting after he was captured.
