Mexico's Drug Lord El Chapo was captured on Saturday, so the D.E.A.'s Sean Dunagan joins us. Before joining L.E.A.P. Sean was the D.E.A.'s senior intelligence research specialist in Mexico. Eventually his family had to be evacuated from the country as a result of cartel violence while he was stationed there. Sean says, “Chapo Guzmán is a ruthlessly violent criminal, and the Mexican authorities who brought him to justice should be commended. Unfortunately, in the big picture, his arrest will do nothing to keep drugs off of our streets or reduce the level of prohibition-related violence in Mexico, Chicago, or anywhere else. As long as we continue the failed strategy of prohibition, violence and corruption will be hallmarks of the drug trade.” Sean joined LEAP after he realized the war on drugs was only making things worse. A fascinating interview that will make it easier to understand the role America plays in the Mexican drug war.

Also film critic Michael Snyder.
