    This was no shawshank redemption prison break. He used $100 bills to dig himself a tunnel and have everyone turn a blind eye.

    Damn, so is there a search party on the hunt for him now?

    There is something about bad guys getting one over on the good guys that is particularly enthralling.

      Except this particular bad guy can inflict more damage in a day than those two guys ever could in their lifetimes. El Chapo has the capacity to literally lead a militaristic insurgency against the Mexican government, as well as sustain it. People in the US shouldn't worry about ISIS, Al-Qaeda, Al-Shabaab, the Taliban, etc. People in the US should worry about the Sinaloa Cartel. The Sinaloa Cartel has the capacity to inflict violence as well as any other terrorist organization, and will if provoked. I do like rooting for the bad guys sometimes, but that certainly has its limitations. This is a man who need not ever see the light of day again.

        His body count is nothing compared to many American presidents. Just going back since I have been alive, let's see who has a higher body count than Guzman- Johnson, Nixon, Reagan, Bush I, Clinton, Bush II and Obama. So, in 51 years of my existence we have had only 2 presidents with a lower body count that a notorious, murderous drug lord. And we are the good guys?

      It may be slightly enthralling but it's also terrifying that the Mexican government can't keep such a high-profile criminal in jail.

        It's a catch-22 for some people. People exclaim that he's out because of corruption (which is true), but it's more complex than just taking bribes. Many of these prison guards were likely told that they and their families would all be brutally tortured and murdered should they choose to not participate in aiding El Chapo's escape. Mexico's only real solution would be to staff all prions with Mexican Special Forces, which is obviously logistically difficult.

      It's not "over on the good guys" but rather "over on the system." The system itself is corrupt as hell. So when someone defeats it you kind of feel good about it. Even if they are terrible, awful murderers. It's like those two guys in NY last week. I couldn't help but silently root for them to escape to the mountains and live the rest of their days as forest hermits.
