Arrest of Serafín Zambada Leaves More Questions Than Answers
Serafín Zambada, 23, son of Ismael “El Mayo” Zambada, who is reportedly the Sinaloa Cartel’s number two man in charge and one of the world’s most wanted men, was arrested at the Dennis DeConcini Port of Entry in Nogales, Arizona, on Wednesday.
Serafín was indicted on September 27 in the US District Court for the Southern District of California in San Diego on the charge of conspiracy to import methamphetamine and cocaine, and is now facing criminal forfeiture and extradition in California. He is scheduled to appear before a federal judge in Tucson on Monday.
“My client is looking forward to the day when he can clear his name in a court of law. He has absolute faith in the legal system,” said Saji Vettiyil, Zambada’s attorney.
Zambada is looking at least one year in prison if convicted, and will have to forfeit to the United States all rights to property and profits obtained through alleged illegal activity, according to reports.
In March 2009, Serafín’s older brother, Jesús “El Vicentillo” Zambada Niebla, was arrested in Mexico City and extradited to the United States where he faces a federal grand jury indictment in Chicago.
Very little else is known about Serafín Zambada’s case. In fact, the little that is known leaves more questions than answers. For instance, why would Serafín Zambada knowing that he’s wanted in California risk arrest and attempt to enter the United States?
Previous reporting on CDS (Cartel de Sinaloa) revealed how several high ranking members received immunity from DEA prosecution in exchange for information on their rivals. Even after his brother’s extradition, was Serafín traveling to US with the understanding that he was protected?
Several Twitter accounts said to be that of the children of El Mayo and El Chapo display a lavish lifestyle usually reserved for royalty. Would they really be so careless as to post key information on their location, travels and family ties to an open platform like Twitter where US intelligence agencies are known to monitor?
If these Twitter accounts prove to be authentic, it demonstrates exactly how foolish the so-called war on drugs has been. While millions of tax dollars go to fighting this war, and thousands are violently killed in Mexico every year, drug trafficking organizations remain as strong as ever. Because for every one of their members killed or imprisoned, 2 are waiting to take his place. And they will remain wealthy and powerful as long as there is such a strong demand for cocaine, meth and other illegal substances coming from drug users in the United States.

I love how the Addams Family has ZERO slut-shaming. Like… honey you can dance naked and enslave someone with your womanly charms if you want to, I don’t fucking care, but so help me you’re going to get a college education first.
The Addamses are what every family should aspire to be like (you know; without the dismemberment and electric chairs as play time). Honestly, have you ever seen more unconditionally loving and supportive parents than Gomez and Morticia? And not just with the kids, but with each other. I think what’s especially unique about them is how open they are with everything. They don’t treat their children like children. They treat them like they treat everyone else; direct, and to the point.
I HAVE to reblog this…
It’s creepy how many good examples of parenting and romantic relationships there is in these characters, especially considering they are supposed to be the antithesis of the stereotypical American nuclear family.
