Marco Willians Herbas Camacho - Marcola

The most dangerous prisoner in Brazil, Marco Willians Herbas Camacho, aka Marcola, leader of the Primeiro Comando da Capital (PCC), declared his support for presidential candidate Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva. (Brazil's Trump) Lula won with 50.9% of the vote.
Marco Willians Herbas Camacho, 'Marcola', is a Brazilian drug lord and leader of the PCC. It is Brazil's largest criminal organization. Under the leadership of Marcola, gangsters are forced to pay a monthly tax and even have a code of discipline known as the 'Devil's Code'. The Port of Santos is located in the state where the PCC originated and has its largest numbers. The PCC, led by Marcola, are a transnational player in the cocaine trade with strong links to the ‘Ndrangheta and Balkan gangsters.
3 shipments of cocaine were caught on the same day as they were about to go to France, Spain and Ghana. All originated from the Brazilian port of Santos. In the morning, 562 kg of cocaine was discovered in a cargo of coffee heading to Le Havre, France. Hours later, a shipment of sugar heading to Ghana was seized with half a ton of cocaine. A container carrying orange juice and bound for Valencia, Spain, was found to contain 730 kg of cocaine. The week before cocaine was found in a shipment of plaster bound for Australia and in sugar packets heading to South Africa. So much cocaine goes out of the port that some even finds its way back. 459 kg was found inside an empty container returning from Philadelphia.
In 2022 Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC), the world’s largest container line, suspended intermodal operations in Brazil. Geneva-based MSC said that criminals were intercepting containers in an attempt to ship drugs overseas. As a result, MSC has decided to indefinitely suspend the packing and pre-stacking operations of road, rail and barge boxes exported across Brazil. The company learned it's lesson after the record breaking 2019 drug bust aboard its ship, the MSC Gayane. MSC detailed the extent of the consequences in a court document, they included over $100m in additional security costs.
The ship was seized by US customs in June 2019 after authorities found nearly 18 tons of cocaine with an estimated street value of $1.3b on the vessel. The 39,500 pounds, or 17.9 metric tons of cocaine is about the same weight as three African bull elephants.

Erik Flores Elortegui tied to downing of Mexican helicopter

The downing of the helicopter and ensuing violence is a key reason why El Mencho remains free. No further attempts to arrest him have occured since.
The weapon used to blast a Mexican military helicopter out of the sky in 2015 came from a supplier in Oregon. Erik Flores Elortegui, a Mexican and U.S. citizen who lived in Portland, tops the Most Wanted list of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. He supplied the Jalisco cartel with a belt-fed .50-caliber semi-automatic rifle.

Eight Mexican soldiers and a cop died in the crash on a mission to arrest drug lord El Mencho. A round tore through the rotor of the aircraft, causing it to catch fire and crash.

Elortegui purchased the $15,350 weapon at a gun shop in Rainier, Washington state.

Ivan Morales, the other cop on board, had to crawl through the fiery wreckage and suffered severe burns.

Hells Angel René Charlebois - revisited

A video of René Charlebois has surfaced. Sitting on an old wooden rocking chair, René 'Balloune' Charlebois, one of Maurice Boucher's top henchmen, delivers his will. Charlebois was found dead after escaping from prison on Sept. 14, 2013. He left behind tapes that rocked organized crime in Quebec.
René Charlebois rose quickly through the ranks of the Hells Angels in the midst of the biker war in Quebec. He became a member of the elite Nomads chapter, and was a trusted confidant of Maurice 'Mom' Boucher. In 2003 he was convicted for the murder of a police informant.

He was jailed but escaped from Montée Saint-François prison in Laval. 12 days later he was cornered by police and rather than return to prison he shot himself in the head with a Smith & Wesson 357 Magnum revolver. Shortly after his death, tape recordings involving then police star biker investigator Benoît Roberge were forwarded to police. Roberge had been working for the Hells Angels as a spy for years.
Benoît Roberge, 53 pleaded guilty on March 13, 2014, to participating in or contributing to the activities of a criminal organization and to committing a breach of trust as a police officer. Roberge was granted his release following a hearing before the Parole Board of Canada.

Benoît Roberge spent a total of 29 months in custody of his 8 year sentence.

1,432 lb meth bust = Calgary HA

Drug smuggler Ted Karl Faupel, 51, told cops a stranger hired him to pilot a drug boat for $1,000. He also said he knew nothing about a loaded gun on board. He was sentenced to a decade in prison Oct. 11, a sentence applauded by U.S. attorneys after calling the meth bust one of the largest of its kind in recent memory. “Faupel was not some low-level courier, as defense may argue. The sheer volume of drugs undermines this argument,” read a sentencing memo. Faupel had a jacket on board that showed he is a supporter of the Calgary Hells Angels.
U.S. customs seized 1,432 pounds of methamphetamine on a boat just southwest of Stuart Island, north of San Juan Island May 26, 2022. Alberta resident Ted Karl Faupel was busted.

Ukraine soldiers execute Russian PoWs - "Glory to Ukraine" - NAFO

Celebrated in US media for its anti-Russian trolling, the Twitter operation known as NAFO was founded by Polish antisemite Kamil Dyszewski to raise funds for the Georgian Legion. Retired US marine Matthew Moores co-created NAFO.
NAFO is praised by western media. It uses “vatnik” as a pejorative for anyone critical of them. Moores said he chose the Georgian Legion as a funding recipient because of it’s reputation as “mercenaries and criminals.”
Moores praised Georgian Legion’s leader, Mamuka Mamulashvili, for “killing Russians since the ’90s.”
Ukraine says it does not tolerate abuse of Russian PoWs and that they treat prisoners humanely. This is not true. The treatment of PoWs has become another weapon being fought on both sides. Gruesome video of Russians being executed was confirmed as genuine by the NY Times.

Near the Russian soldiers is a BMD-2 infantry fighting vehicle. The Ukrainian soldiers wear blue armbands in the video and shout, “Glory to Ukraine.” A Ukrainian news agency claims the ambush was conducted by the Georgian Legion, a group of Georgian volunteers. Mamuka Mamulashvili is the commander of the Georgian Legion. In one video, three Russian soldiers are unloaded from a truck and then shot in their legs. A recent statement from Ukraine’s Special Operations Command said that Russian artillery would no longer be captured and shown mercy, but that anyone contributing to the bombing of civilians would be “slaughtered like a pig.
According to a Danish volunteer with the Ukrainian army, Russian PoWs are being executed. The sniper spoke with Denmark state broadcaster TV2, saying that while he has killed Russians, they have only been in combat, whereas Ukrainians are systematically executing soldiers who have been captured.
