Ignacio Paez Soto 'El Nacho' whacked

Ignacio Paez Soto, associate of drug cartel kingpin Joaquín 'El Chapo' Guzmán was executed during an attack in Caborca, Sonora. Soto was sitting inside his vehicle with his wife when a group of assassins launched the assault outside a convenience store parking lot. Assassins jumped out of a Jeep Cherokee carrying military rifles and fired before they fled. Paez was shot more than 50 times and was declared dead at the scene.
Paez reportedly oversaw the Sinaloa Cartel's operations throughout the northern state of Sonora since 2002, including turf in the cities of Sásabe, Alta, Pitiquito and Caborca.

The Sinaloa Cartel has been beset by an internal power struggle since El Chapo was captured. El Chapo's three sons, 'Los Chapitos', have fought for control of the organization against a cell created by Rafael Caro Quintero.

No Parole for wicked pedophile Shayne Lund

Shayne Lund
Shayne Lund was denied parole in September. He is serving an indeterminate sentence for attacks on 14 females as young as two years old. The 35 charges ranged from arranging sex offences involving children, printing child pornography, bestiality and sexual assault.

Kathryn Thompson, Shayne Lund. He pleaded guilty in 2016. A judge said there will never be a time when it will be safe to release Shayne Lund into the community.

Shayne Lund
After a five-year-old girl fought off Shayne Lund’s sex-crazed advances, he begged his girlfriend to get him younger children who wouldn’t know any better or tell. “I want the two-year-old,” Lund texted Avery Taylor. “I’m fixated ... I want her bad.”

“I’m trying hun,” Taylor responded.

Lund, now 28, formerly from Orillia, has been in custody since his arrest in September 2013. He pleaded guilty to 35 charges, including planning to kidnap, drug and rape children; sexually assaulting children; making child pornography; and bestiality with dogs and horses.
Taylor and another Lund girlfriend, Kathryn Thompson pleaded guilty to their own list of related charges.

In the 233-page statement of facts, text messages between Lund and Taylor show they had ongoing plans to kidnap a younger child after plans to abuse the five-year-old girl failed twice.

“I liked that she saw my (penis) and I liked that she was resistant,” he replies in a text, referring to the five-year-old. “If you want them awake we need younger,” Taylor replied. Lund then describes perverted sex acts he’d perform on a toddler.

Shayne Lund, Avery Taylor
Taylor was sentenced to 4 1/2 years in prison followed by six years of intensive supervision in the community. Thompson received three years in prison with four years of community supervision.

UK Drug kingpin Thomas Maher

Thomas Maher, 40, conspired to transport £1.5m of cocaine and launder £1m in cash. He was jailed for 15 years.

The Irishman was arrested but never charged with the killing of 39 Vietnamese migrants in a truck trailer. Cops put him under surveillance for seven months until they arrested him a second time.
The Vietnamese had paid £10,000 each to be smuggled into the UK. They were placed on a truck in Europe, driven by Eamonn Harrison, to Zeebrugge, Belgium and put on a ferry. Truck driver Maurice Robinson collected the container from Purfleet, Essex, after it arrived.

Robinson was sent a message saying: “Give them air quickly but don’t let them out.” He drove out of Purfleet port, stopped and opened the doors to find a tomb. Robinson, 26, and Ronan Hughes, 40, who ran a haulage company, admit manslaughter and conspiracy.

UK Gangster pulls 12 years for selling gun to youth

A gangland kingpin who masterminded a UK-wide gun running racket has been jailed for 12 years after police caught him selling an antique revolver to a teenager. Aqdas Vasi, 32, was arrested after officers saw him hand over an American-made Defender 89.32 Rimfire weapon to Tyrece Weaver, 19.
Vasi was a member of the Fallowfield 'Mad Dogs' gang.
Cops searched Vasi's Audi Quattro convertible and found a British made Bulldog revolver. Vasi admitted charges of selling a firearm and possessing prohibited weapons. Weaver pulled 5 years youth custody after he admitted possessing a prohibited firearm and ammunition. The teenager claimed he was forced to get the gun by Manchester by Herts-based gangs who force kids as young as 10 into 'county lines' drug trafficking.

The judge wasn't amused. 'It is trite to say that too many lethal weapons are available, carried, distributed or used. They have devastating consequences and are properly described as a scourge on our society.'

Phuket Thailand - Hells Angels' Paradise

Along with cheap prices and the ability to blend in with other "farangs" - foreigners, Phuket has much to offer.
Night is painted with flashing neon in Phuket. This is a party place - an escape of the everyday. But it is also a haven for criminals. The list is long ... fraudsters, murderers, pedophiles, fugitives on the run, many call Phuket home. Widespread corruption and slow computerization of government records has long made Thailand a safe haven from the long arm of the law.
The HA clubhouse overlooks Patong beach. No photo, no name, says the president of the Nomads. The bikers keep a low profile and need to keep the peace as the largest and strongest gang is always the Thai police. That all changed in 2016 with the murder of high ranking wholesale drug trafficker Wayne Schneider, who was found naked with a broken neck, two meters underground.

"We build playgrounds for orphans" says 'Dennis' when asked if the HA receive money through trafficking, drugs, weapons, prostitution or extortion. In Phuket the bikers wear flip flops and drive mopeds.
Harleys are impractical for short trips through the narrow streets. The HA Nomads celebrated their 18th anniversary in Phuket. They like it here.

Luke Anderson is the latest HA to get sent packing back to Australia from Thailand. He's wanted for drug trafficking. Anderson made headlines in 2016 for bashing a Thai man. The 3 HA bikers avoided consequences by paying restitution.

Solar panels driving heroin production in Afghanistan

Helmand province in Afghanistan is the heart of the most productive opium-growing region on earth. Roughly 2/3 of world heroin production comes from Helmand.
Adulterated diesel in remote areas causes pumps and generators to regularly break down and require repair. The deserts of Helmand are being turned into new growing areas through the use of solar panels. Arrays of solar panels feed pumps that bring groundwater to reservoirs. The first report of an Afghan farmer using solar power was in 2013. Since then growth has been exponential.

Buying diesel to power their pumps used to be the farmers' biggest expense. An array of solar panels and an electric pump has virtually no running costs.

New farms are appearing further into the desert. In 2013 157,000 hectares were under cultivation. In 2019 it was 344,000 hectares.

In 2017 there was bumper opium harvest of 9,000 tonnes which crashed prices. Overall production decreased, but not for the farmers with solar power in Helmond Province. This increase in productivity has been felt around the world.

Milton 'Butch' Jones seeks covid-19 release

Milton 'Butch' Jones, a leader of the notorious Detroit drug gang "Young Boys, Inc.," contracted the coronavirus in federal prison and is seeking compassionate release. Once a feared drug kingpin linked to multiple Detroit killings, Jones is now 65, in a wheelchair and on dialysis three times per week.

In 1982, leaders Raymond Peoples, Jones and 41 lieutenants were indicted. Jones was released after 12 years in federal prison, but was busted again for murder and drug charges. He has served more than 19 years and has a 2027 release date.
At Jones' prison, 306 inmates and 22 staff are Covid positive and 9 inmates have died.
Milton 'Butch' Jones and his crew were called the Henry Ford of heroin. The group was highly effective because of its vertically integrated structure. It was described by the Feds as a "military-like organization chart for narcotics conspiracy."

YBI worked to keep drugs, distribution, and money in separate locations. It used minors exclusively as runners and street level dealers, which made inflitrating the gang impossible. YBI represented a change in gang structure. It also sourced it's own heroin supply, instead of relying on the Italian mafia.
