BBC: Escaped drug lord El Chapo revered in home state

August 13 2015, Culiacan — A month ago, Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, the world’s most notorious drugs lord, escaped from Mexico’s highest-security prison through a mile-long tunnel.

In his home state of Sinaloa, there’s a certain pride about the infamous capo, despite the violent crimes his cartel has committed. Some people say he should be honoured with a monument or chapel.
