Discussion: Mexico Investigating Meeting Between Actors And Drug Kingpin

Discussion for article #244614

still not sure what the fuss is…

according to the article there is no law against actually meeting with El Chapo but he could be prosecuted if he was given one of those really ugly shirts as a gift?

This is Kate Del Castillo’s 2012 twitter post that set in motion the whole affair. She gushed and El Chapo got a hard on:

“Mr. ‘Chapo,’ wouldn’t it be cool that you started trafficking with love? With cures for diseases, with food for the homeless children, with ALCOHOL for the retirement homes that don’t let the elderly spend the rest of the days doing whatever the f…k they want. Imagine trafficking with corrupt politicians instead of women and children who end up as slaves. Why don’t you burn all those whore houses where women are worth less than a pack of cigaretttes?.”

“Without offer there’s no demand. COME ON Don! You would be the HEROES of HEROES! Let’s traffic with love. YOU KNOW HOW TO. Life is a business, and the only thing hat changes is the merchandise. Don’t you agree?”

It may not be illegal, but it’s pretty repugnant to meet with the fugitive whose drug cartel supplies half of the U.S.'s illegal drugs–and we’re not talking about harmless pot, either–and is responsible for thousands of deaths.

I disagree… I still remember the ABC news story with the reporter meeting Osama bin Laden in a cave when bin Laden openly talked about attacking the US…

or interviewing Castro or Manuel Noriega who was actively providing money laundering and protection to drug smugglers…

the person may be repugnant but that doesn’t make them less newsworthy…

What is it about Sean Penn…

This further drives home the fact that Rolling Stone is no longer capable of heavy lifting when it comes to real journalism. Just stick to your snarky little music reviews and nobody will get hurt.
