Gang Warfare In Chicago Fueled By Sinaloa Cartel Heroin

On Valentine’s Day 2013, the heads of the Chicago Crime Commission and the Chicago office of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration named infamous Mexican drug lord Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán as the city’s Public Enemy No. 1.

The timely label, occurring 84 years after gangster Al Capone first earned it following the St. Valentine's Day Massacre in 1929, lasted only a year as Guzmán was arrested in Mexico the following February, but the imprint his organization made – and continues to make – on Chicago has helped turn the U.S.’s third-largest city into one of the nation’s largest drug trafficking hubs, replete with the violence and related crimes that come with that designation.

New York may have the famed five families of the Mafia, and Los Angeles is the cradle of the Bloods and the Crips, but Chicago remains gangland capital in the United States.

And you liberal idiots and RINO's think that legalizing marijuana is the answer! It's only going to make things worse with the cartels.
