When El Chapo first escaped people questioned why no one noticed. They questioned how he managed to escape in such a sophisticated way without guards catching on. Chapo managed to escape on a motorcycle that was buried underground. It's not hard to realize that he has power and fear protecting him. He has more control then the leaders of our country.
In case you weren't aware El Chapo is one of the leaders of the largest drug cartel in Mexico. He's the kind of person you don't want to piss off. Think of it this way. If you knew someone was doing something wrong odds are you'd tell someone. But if that person knew people that could easily murder you or murder your family the odd's of you telling anyone what they were doing practically disappear. It's sad that people in today's society still use fear to get ahead of others.
My mom always says "If you can't beat them joint them." and that's what people are doing. People think that gangsters are respected. That they are superior members of society. This is the opposite of reality. Gangsters are feared they are hated and the power they have is beyond negative.
