Too bad online social media didn't exist back then to see pics of how Escobar and his people enjoyed their money.

It's crazy to think how freely these CDS guys shared all these pics...

the third twitter account you listed there was arrested BECAUSE of his social media posting

no tweets since arrest




^^^ one of his instagram/Twitter postings


you know what's crazy? Hollywood CREATED how these guys act in real life...they want to be Scarface...that is who they aspire to be in life...Al Pacino played the part the decided how these guys should act

you can see the Hip Hop industry does it for these guys too...their Bentleys and Louboutin shoes and oversized diamnd watches

and these guys just can't help themselves but to show off on Twitter...smh...they're like kids

How stupid could people possibly be?

If I'm Chapo or any other cartel boss, as soon as I find out my subordinates are posting incriminating stuff on f*ckin twitter... I put out a hit on all of them. Leave them in the street with a computer mouse shoved up their ass as a message.

Unbelievable.

yeah it really is jaw-droppingly stupid...but you know it's an illegal business, it's not like they have manager's meetings on how to conduct themselves online ...and on top of that these guys probably never set foot in school at even a high school level...school for them was watching Scarface over and over

At his peak Pablo Escobar was making $1 million/day. his cartel smuggled 15 tons of cocaine everyday in whole America.

Quote:
According to Roberto Escobar (his accountant), he and his brother's operation spent $2500 a month purchasing rubber bands to wrap the stacks of cash, storing most of it in their warehouses; 10% had to be written-off due to "spoilage" by rats who crept in at night and nibbled on the hundred dollar bills

can't make this shit up

One critical thing to consider is that this cartel basically did whatever the F.ck they wanted with complete impunity. Thus, they weren't too worried about sharing their whereabouts and their activities, in regards to the authorities capturing them. The only people they needed to worry about was rival cartels.

It's been widely speculated that the Sinaloa Cartel was lowkey working with the CIA and the Mexican Government. The cartel would give intel on rival cartels and the CIA/Mex Govt. would grant them immunity to continue their trafficking.

It's interesting how all 4 accounts basically stopped activity around the same time, which leads me to believe that something happened that changed that relationship between the govt and the cartel. Not only was @comandante57_ arrested recently..@ZambadaSerafin was also arrested trying to cross the border into the US in November. Funny thing is that he was born in San Diego, so by law he is just as American as any of us

I noticed that as well...

@comandante57_ ended in September...and he is the one that got caught due to his Instagram posting

the others all ended pretty much THE SAME DAY...Nov. 10, Nov. 9, and Nov. 8


my theory?...the news that @comandante57_ was arrested BECAUSE of Twitter/Instagram didn't hit them until Nov.10...and once that happened all the others suddenly decided to stop Tweeting lol

The thing is @comandante57_ wasn't arrested till December 30th, 2013 in Amsterdam. His twitter was compromised by a spambot, as you can see from his last tweet, so he just continued using his instagram instead. I remember hearing about his arrest and I immediately googled his instagram and that mfer was still uploading a couple more pics/vids even tho according to the news, he was already in custody.



This is one of them, the caption is basically him making a sarcastic comment in regards to reading about his arrest. According to the facts, he was arrested on December 30th but in another video, on his instagram, he was dancing while the fireworks were seen in the background, breaking in the new year. cheeky bastard

Interestingly, his instagram was deleted but not his twitter...
