Great news thanks. Some were worried that the jury was taking so long.
They were simply doing their due diligence wading through volumes of testimony and evidence.

Hopefully, no one is stupid enough to give the man anything resembling a tool. :)

Drug lord Joaquin 'El Chapo' Guzman found guilty on all 10 charges originally appeared on abcnews.go.com

Notorious Mexican drug kingpin Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman has been found guilty on all charges by a jury in Brooklyn federal court.

The jury found Guzman responsible for violence, including murders, as well as the "smuggling of massive amounts of narcotics" into the U.S. over decades, prosecutors told reporters after Tuesday's verdict.

After the verdict, Ray Donovan, special agent in charge of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), called Guzman a "ruthless killer" who was "responsible for unthinkable amounts of death and destruction" in the U.S. and Mexico.

“He was the man behind the curtain -- he pulled all the strings,” Donovan said.

Maybe we should take his wealth and use it for the wall.

Least surprising news of the day.

He will never see the outside of a jail again.

Send him to SuperMax, and seize his assets.

Let's see him tunnel out of there.

But, in the long run, he will be replaced by another thug.

Life will go on...

I seriously think seizing his assets is an excellent idea.

A lot of people who don't know what they're talking about had been speculating that Chapo had got to the jury somehow, or they were having a Hollywood moment, and that's why they were taking so long. No, they were just doing their jobs, making sure to review all of the evidence carefully before coming to a unanimous verdict on each count.

Things like that really serve as a boost to your confidence in America. Nobody wants to do jury duty. They sure as hell don't want to be placed under constant surveillance for their own protection for weeks, escorted everywhere they go. But when it matters, most of the time, people take it seriously.
