«The capture of a criminal cannot be worth more than the lives of people,» the president said.

The climate in Culiacán is one of terror and also of indignation. El Chapo Guzmán’s son, whose detention on Thursday unleashed a pitched battle with shootings, detonations and burning cars, resulted in the release of the drug lord to avoid a bloodbath.

Now his current status is «disappeared» for the authorities. No one knows where it is. Except his lawyer. The decision to let him go was backed by President Andrés Manuel López Obrador himself, as he admitted Friday.

The decision to leave Ovidio Guzmán López free was taken by the López Obrador Security Cabinet. «I supported her,» the president admitted.

“It was decided to protect people’s lives and I agreed with that. It is not about massacres. That is over. The capture of a criminal cannot be worth more than the lives of people, ”he argued. Meanwhile, Ovid Guzmán López is now «free and contacted his family,» lawyer José Luis González Meza told Mexican media. The narco twisted the arm of the López Obrador government again, and the general climate in Mexico is outrageous.

 «Chapito falls, unleashes terror and … releases him,» the portal of the newspaper El Universal today titled. The arrest of Ovidio Guzmán occurred on Thursday afternoon and was confirmed by the Secretary of Security and Citizen Protection of Mexico, Alfonso Durazo. This fact caused the cells of the Sinaloa cartel, a Mexican criminal organization dedicated to drug trafficking, to turn Culiacán into a war field.

The violence used by these armed groups caused the Mexican Government to be forced to free the boss, who after hours of detention, is now missing.

It was Durazo himself who said that the suspension of detention was aimed at safeguarding «the integrity and tranquility of Culiacanense society.» The decision to free Guzman’s son was taken unanimously by the cabinet, with the wink of López Obrador.

“We don’t want dead people, we don’t want war, that is hard for many to understand, but the previous strategy turned the country into a cemetery and we don’t want that anymore. Nothing by force, all for reason and progress,”said Lopez Obrador.

According to the Secretary of Security, a unit of the National Guard on Thursday carried out a «routine patrol» in a neighborhood in the center of Culiacán, capital of Sinaloa, when from a house was shot, an action that the uniformed men repelled by detaining four people. «One of them was identified as Ovid Guzmán López,» which «led to several groups of organized crime surrounding the house with a greater force,» Durazo said.

Locals terrified in the middle of the fire were forced to run for refuge between scenes of burning cars.According to the Secretary of Security, a unit of the National Guard on Thursday carried out a «routine patrol» in a neighborhood in the center of Culiacán, capital of Sinaloa, when from a house was shot, an action that the uniformed men repelled by detaining four people.
