There is a short SWJ article:http://smallwarsjournal.com/jrnl/art...y-prison-for-t

Personally I think $$ talked and one suspects those who detained him (Mexican Marines & DEA from memory) will not be impressed.

The Staggering Death Toll of Mexico’s Drug War

Quote:
Last week, the Mexican government released new data showing that between 2007 and 2014 — a period that accounts for some of the bloodiest years of the nation’s war against the drug cartels — more than 164,000 people were victims of homicide. Nearly 20,000 died last year alone, a substantial number, but still a decrease from the 27,000 killed at the peak of fighting in 2011.

Over the same seven-year period, slightly more than 103,000 died in Afghanistan and Iraq, according to data from the United Nations and the website Iraq Body Count.
Sort of puts it in perspective.

Four people died in a shootout between marines and gunmen that started during an attempt to rescue a kidnapped businessman in Sinaloa, a state in northwestern Mexico, state prosecutors told EFE.

The shootout occurred on Monday at a motel outside the city of Guamuchil when marines tried to rescue kidnapping victim Carlos Humberto Barroso Cecea.

The businessman, who worked in sales and marketing, was one of the four people who died in the shootout.
Authorities seized two SUVs belonging to the gunmen.
