In 2013, Forbes magazine estimated that Guzman was worth 4 billion dollars.
Where do you think he got all that money? Destroying the lives of millions of
individuals and families with his drug cartel. We don’t know how many
people Guzman has killed, but he has claimed to have directly or indirectly
murdered thousands of people. That doesn't include through the drugs he
pedaled in this country that destroyed millions more. He got his own sons
involved in the drug trade resulting in the murder of at least one. He has left
his little girls without a father they can look up to or be proud of. It is no
wonder his mental health may be deteriorating. Thinking about the life he has
lived would do that as much as any conditions in jail. He wants compassion and
mercy when he has shown none throughout his life.
