    I believe every word he said. You can tell he's remembering the events that happened as he's telling them. He's reliving the moment and you sort of see his gaze shift away as he's remembering the details in his head. He has no emotions, has a cold air about him and he didn't embellish his stories to make himself out to be some hotshot. He was just straight to the point. I hope he finds peace.

    Wow. This is by far one of the most insanely genuine interviews i have ever seen. We sometimes tend to remove the idea of humanity from anyone who is or was a career criminal. I’ve certainly been guilty of that, but this was a sharp reminder to think twice before assuming anything about anyone based on a label. I sure hope he finds some sort of peace in his life, and hopefully rebuilds his relationship with his family before it’s no longer an option. Time doesn’t stop. Kudos to the interviewer for knowing how to ask those uncomfortable questions respectfully.

      I don’t think that’ll be great for his mental health. That’s why he’s teaching children in boxing because he’s trying to move foward from his past. But lowkey I wouldn’t be surprised if he falls back into the cartel world because that’s all he’s known and even gets some of those youngins he’s teaching into the cartel.

      @@berenisemendez5223that would honestly suck if he returned to his old ways especially since he’s doing well teaching the kids that even if they come from a broken home they can be something in life. But life is no fairytale so he might return. The worse part for me is that he hasn’t seen his mom is 17 years… that’s sad.

    3 years ago while on vacation in Mexico I sat down with one of these guys (retired) for a long conversation. He said that he couldn't eat roasted chicken for 6 months because it smells a lot like burning bodies.
    I asked him how he could live with himself knowing he had done those things. His answer: It's not personal, it's war.

      @@emmsh3344 Mexican cartels work differently than mafias (as Italian, Albanese, Russian, Japanese etc..) they are not connected by blood/ethnicity but mostly by the state / region they are born, they are like regional companies who control and hire local people for many of their tasks, mostly of Sicários work for outsourced local guerrillas who are paid by the Top of Cartel pyramid, they are paid for “tasks” and that’s one of the reasons why so hard to stop this mess, a lot of these guerrilas are made by local farmers, policemen, taxi drivers etc.. doing it as an extra job, believe me Mexico is a narco state that normalised all this, and as much you don’t betray the cartels and your own local guerrilla and find someone good to replace you it’s ok to leave and have a normal life, the problem that half of them don’t live enough or are in debt with the cartels for life bcs of drugs or money borrowed.
