‘Hector Largo,’ the Pink Cocaine Czar, captured by Colombian National Police

first_imgBy Dialogo May 02, 2014 It’s wonderful that all those idle people are captured and punished for life. Maybe now they will learn to quit the vice. OK Any person dedicated to drug trafficking and illicit gain, in any other part of the world, should be captured by the authorities and punished. They cause a lot of harm. Thank you for this kind of news. I congratulate you. It’s all very pretty, this way I learn more about life. I think the Colombian police has done a good job. WE HOPE THAT ALL COUNTRIES COME TOGETHER FOR A GOOD CAUSE, TO ELIMINATE THIS EVIL THAT IS HURTING THE SOCIETY AND THE WORLD OVERALL, THE SIMPLEST ONES, WHO ARE OUR CHILDREN AND YOUTH OF THE WORLD. SAY NO TO DRUGS AND YES TO LIFE. You should publish more information on these matters. Well, it would be better if the national police received a fair salary, instead of a starvation wage. Until when will greed rule the world? I didn’t like it, how ugly We Colombians are numbed out due to so many perverse delinquents. The only thing they do is harm the youth of all classes. I wish the authorities were tougher with the punishments and penalties imposed, but the most embarrassing thing is that they continue this behavior even from prison. Damn the existing corruption. It’s good, this way they stop sending us drugs, in the Dominican Republic. It’s good that they are taking action so that children, teenagers and adults become aware and stop using drugs, and stop serving as mules for drug gangs. Congratulations to the authorities. Colombian policemen should wear hoods so they can’t be identified and criminals can’t threaten their families. This way they can work better against organized crime. Good evening, I want to thank you for informing our people the way you are doing. Congratulations! We must unify the family to analyze and improve the quality of life. Remove all vices from the community. It’s good that they are fighting drug trafficking. Keep it up and much success. Interesting. Excellent work. These drugs take over the youth and destroy it along with the entire family. It’s very important for the world that the police keep working with the different strategies provided by God. It appears that they are improving It’s interesting to know the operative accomplishments against drug trafficking. Here’s to the best police in the world. It would be good if police wasn’t so corrupted, that way they would be more effective. It’s very important that justice is made with these types of drugs, thanks to the people who fight against them. Hold on Pablo Escobar!!!! These guys are fools, Pablito used to help the people. Very good subject i am for legalisation, as long drugs will stay illegal, the profits will stay very high , and repression will never end. Let adults people choose themself what they want to do and try to concentrate your efforts on prevention for childs under 18. Legalisation drugs would give an enormous amount of money to each country that they loose with this repression system and stop all this wasted money injected in repression. There’s an urgent need for more information on prevention (causes and effect) for the entire population, starting in schools. We must continue to fight hard against drugs. It was a success but that’s all, meaning there’s plenty of work to do because they’ve done very little. It’s wonderful that the Colombian police is well-prepared to fight against this scourge that is destroying society. Too bad that we, Venezuelans, can’t rely on the same efficiency. The football selection has filled us with a patriotic sentiment. You filled us with national pride and hope. It is necessary to fight and eliminate these criminal groups that are ruining society. I’m not saying it’s good or bad, but the biggest mafia in the country is the state (government) itself. The thing is that they work under legal norms and laws but the government is the most corrupt and mafioso of them all. Very good. Very interesting and detailed. The State must fight drug trafficking effectively, using all security entities in order to give society a good education. One of the goals is to fight drug trafficking collectively, the State security agencies along with the communities. That’s very interesting. I was unaware of the existence of pink cocaine and of that price difference. It’s disturbing for our reality. That’s how Colombia is: punishment for the thugs. Not like here, where the government protects them. It is necessary to fight this evil with all possible means, and end it, especially for the sake of our children and grandchildren. Very good. He should be punished to death. Very interesting. I didn’t know about this drug, thank God it hasn’t arrived to Panama yet. Pink cocaine is probably more dangerous than the current one. That’s the way it’s done. I hope that one day they will end this evil that is affecting both adults and children. How I love you, Colombia. That’s what Venezuela needs. They should follow their example. We are gonna have to change ourselves if we want a country free of corrupt politicians that only look out for their own interests. Very explanatory, I was not aware of the details about this drug. If you want to end drug trafficking, you need to seriously consider legalizing drugs, otherwise you will never end this sweet torment. That’s good. This is alarming news that needs to be analysed, especially for the sake of our children, since danger is at our front doors. That’s right. Hooray for the Colombian police who had the courage to catch that drug lord and didn’t accept any bribery as many other corrupt cops do. There are also other policemen like these Colombian brothers who are honest. Drug yourself, send it to us Very good. It’s a warning for all Latin American countries regarding this kind of people. There should be no benefit, only life imprisonment to ensure that they don’t keep harming our youth, which are tomorrow’s future. May God prevent any more suffering for a mother and the grandparents. Excellent work from our intelligence forces. We continue fighting organized crime. Another additional problem for the world. We must tackle it with a firm hand -H. Excellent! We are very pleased with your information, thanks a lot! Well, that’s all good but there’s also the possibility that it’s all for show, and after he gets off the horse and nothing has happened, they forget about the issue… We must eliminate these plagues that only want to harm society. The Colombian police have done an extraordinary job. The police force of other countries should imitate them. The main authorities, the army, the elite research groups, both in Colombia as well as in the U.S., are accomplices, they are indirect accessories to the trafficking and use of all the existing drugs, so…..until when will there be so many lies about this issue. Drugs exist because they are permitted by the authorities and are ruining the lives of our youth as well as destroying their families, all over the world, and all because of the damn money. If drugs didn’t generate any profit, they wouldn’t exist. It’s that easy. When will they eliminate them….Beware, don’t be fooled. This type of comments is interesting. Well, you always read that drugs will be eliminated, but every day there are more drug innovations and regardless of how much you fight them, they will continue to travel around the world. That’s good…. Let’s take one step at a time and not be fooled: With a great usage of strategy and technology, the police captures the delinquents. These go to jail and are received as great heroes, and the real crime universities are created with the testimonial contribution of all of the most feared and canny individuals that have broken the law. Because, those that were captured for minor felonies promise not to commit acts of less importance without being absorbed by bands that are increasingly more specialized and there they start practicing everything they have learned in the seclusion centers. The police has no saying in these acts, the penal and incarcerating system of our country does not foresee in the least the rehabilitation, much less within the dilapidated, unimproved prisons with a high index of overcrowding. Excellent and quite new for me, also great intelligence work. It’s excellent that they captured these people that cause so much harm to society but there needs to be real justice. I didn’t know that pink cocaine existed. Excellent job by the Colombian police. Another drug trafficker behind bars. Give the death penalty or a life sentence to these drug bandits, and also for child rapists. This should be included in our VENEZUELAN Constitution. I hope they continue catching those delinquents that are causing this terrible sickness to our youth. Excellent!!! I like it when the authorities make a priority to fight off delinquency. Particularly drugs and insecurity. Finally, a big fish has been caught, but there will be others doing the same. These assholes are ridiculous. He should be punished to death. Really good information. The article on the evolution of drugs is very interesting Yeah especially the government 1# drug traffickers Success for the Colombian National Police Authorities suspect Hector Largo not only produced and distributed pink cocaine, but that he also participated in multiple homicides in Valle de Cauca, where the synthetic drug manufacturing operation was based, according to press reports. Hector Largo is affiliated with the Machos, a Colombian gang, and Los Urabenos, an international drug trafficking organization. The Machos were once the once the armed wing of the Norte del Valle cartel, but have since been absorbed by Los Urabenos. The synthetic drug distribution network directed by Hector Largo had previously been led by Hector Mario Urindola, who is also known as “Chicho.” He was the leader of the Machos in the Valle de Cauca. Increased demand Hector Largo took over the distribution network after Colombian National Police agents captured Chicho in January, 2013. Chicho allegedly ran a series of clandestine drug labs in the Valle de Cacua to manufacture pink cocaine. He also set up distribution networks in each of Colombia’s major cities. Hector Largo allegedly took over the pink cocaine production and distribution network after security forces captured Chico. Hector Largo suspected of killings. center_img Colombian security forces are working hard to combat the increase in synthetic drug production and use, the security analyst said. “Capturing the pink cocaine czar is another success for the Colombian National Police, which is making good use of intelligence,” Gálvez said. “ It is another example of how Colombia has managed to strengthen its security apparatus.” Colombian security forces have also made great progress in eradicating the cultivation and production of cocaine, Gálvez said. Security forces must continue their vigilance, the security analyst said. “ Colombian authorities are continuing to fight organized crime groups,” Gálvez said. “The Colombian government will continue to strengthen its security forces in the cities.” Julieta Pelcastre contributed to this article. The dangers of ‘pink cocaine’ Pink cocaine, which is also known as “Venus” and “Nexus,” is a hallucinogenic designer drug first manufactured in Europe. Users can ingest it in powder or pill form. The effects of pink cocaine have been described by users as a cross between ecstasy and LSD. Pink cocaine has become the drug of choice among affluent users in Colombia’s urban area, supplanting ordinary cocaine, authorities said. Pink cocaine has gained popularity despite the fact it costs up to $75 (USD) per dose, compared to $5 (USD) for a gram of ordinary cocaine. Synthetic drugs are attractive to organized crime groups because they are easier to manufacture and transport than regular cocaine, and command much higher prices. Hector Largo allegedly ran distribution networks for synthetic drugs in Bogota, Medellin, Cartagena, and Barranquilla, according to authorities. He was allegedly setting up a distribution network for the drugs in Pereira when National Police agents captured him, according to published reports. From Chicho to Hector Largo Hector Largo had been trying to capitalize on the increased demand for synthetic drugs in Colombia’s urban areas. The surge in demand is reflected by the amount of synthetic drug seizures police made in 2013. Colombian police seized almost 185,000 doses of synthetic drugs in 2013 – more than double the number of doses seized in 2012. Sales of pink cocaine are on the rise because the drug is cheaper to produce, said Yadira Gálvez, a security analyst at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM). “Synthetic drugs are easier and cheaper to produce,” Gálvez said. “Pink cocaine has a strong place in the illicit drug market.” Colombian security forces have captured that country’s alleged “czar” of the production and distribution of the synthetic designer drug known as “pink cocaine.” Colombian National Police captured Hector Alonso Castro Franco, 38, on March 24 in the city of Pereira, authorities said. Police captured him at a shopping mall. He is also known as “Hector Largo,” a leading figure in the criminal groups Los Machos and Los Urabeños. Before his capture, Hector Largo was the biggest distributor of synthetic drugs in Colombia, according to investigators with the Colombian National Police Directorate of Criminal Investigation and Interpol. Hector Largo was also allegedly the principal producer of the party drug “2C-B,” which is also known as “pink cocaine.” last_img read more

Hell Hath No Fury Like Angelina Jolie Scorned (in ‘Maleficent’)

first_imgTherein lies the force that is Angelina Jolie. She walks the line between hateful and fragile in a way that no other actress in recent memory could. She is believable when out of her hurt and righteous wrath she summons up the force of all the hatred on Earth to condemn an innocent baby. She is equally credible when the cracks in her fierce persona begin to break.I dare you not to cry at the moment of her betrayal when she lets out a guttural howl that still rings in my ears and causes gooseflesh on my arms a full week after I saw it on the big screen.Was this a plot rip-off of Wicked? Yup.Does Disney rake in profits by exploiting the gaps in storytelling from the story they told us? Absolutely.Is it one of those rare films aimed at children that resonates with parents long after their children have moved on?Unfortunately for Jenifer sympathizers, the answer is a resounding yes. Sign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Maleficent is the movie that will make all Jenifer Aniston fans forgive the indomitable Angelina Jolie and nod in agreement with the perpetually-bearded Brad Pitt: he chose the right woman after all.It is a film that, like the Broadway smash hit Wicked, tells the other side of a well-known story. You think you know the tale of Sleeping Beauty by heart? Well, that’s just adorable, says the same Hollywood that brought you the Disney-fied version of Sleeping Beauty. Disney doesn’t care: “What do you know, movie-watcher? What? Do you get all of your information from…us?”Apparently Maleficent makes up for all the misleading clues set up for us by the original in 1959. In essence, it’s a double whammy for Disney.Brilliant.But what is also brilliant is this finely wrought film, whose special effects usher us into a magical world where faeries fly and cavort, and know nothing of the evil greedy ways of mankind. And like every single Disney film before it, pure sweet innocence is ripe for a fall.Enter said man.The man to come in and ruin everything is Stefan, played first by Michael Higgins and later by Sharlto Copley, an orphan (of course; see above: Disney) who wanders bravely into the magical forest and falls in love with a young Maleficent, a good faerie with white-feathered wings. What follows is the foundation from which the rest of the story builds: a brutal betrayal, a transition from love to hate, innocence lost and evil gained. It is the back-story to Sleeping Beauty, in which the audience sees the evil witch put a curse on Stefan’s royal daughter, the infant Aurora, to make her fall into a death-like sleep once she turns 16.What makes Maleficent so compelling isn’t just the twist on the storytelling’s viewpoint, but that we also see it through the eyes of Aurora, who grows up under the care of three hopeless faeries—and the ever-watchful Maleficent, who tries with all of her heart to live up to her reputation as “evil.”last_img read more

Caterer’s appeal: The season is bitter, we lack workers

first_imgHUT AND HUP APPEAL: URGENTLY MAKE A DECISION TO INCREASE QUOTAS BECAUSE THERE ARE NO WORKERS AND THE SEASON IS IN DANGER  At the end of the price list it says: “Croatia full of life. A small country with big taxes” In addition to 15.611 approved quotas for workers and 1.600 available domestic workers on the list of the Croatian Employment Service, Croatia currently lacks as many as 5.000 workers, he points out. Marin Medak, President of the Independent Association of Caterers and adds that the reason for this is the constant emigration of a capable workforce, for which various political options have failed to find an adequate solution. “It seems to us that due to preferential prices in the government restaurant, the Prime Minister lost his compass and forgot that 108 people employed in the hospitality and tourism sector, or 000% of the total number of people employed in Croatia, earn 8% of Croatia’s total GDP annually. Instead of the ruling party only talking about demographics, I suggest that returnee emigrants be provided with a tax relief of HRK 22 over the next ten years. Let the Government finally show that it is ready to withdraw some concrete measures. “, Medak emphasized. Source. Facebook Photo: Cover photo Pixabay.com / FB The price list of the restaurant says: Croatian caterers are facing a business collapse that will have far-reaching negative consequences for Croatian tourism, all due to the lack of support and understanding of the Government in finding the much-needed workforce, the Croatian Hospitality Coordination said in a statement. VAT and consumption tax are included in the price!  VAT 25%, Consumption tax 3%, Income tax 36%, Pension contribution 15%, Health contribution 16,5%, Regos contribution 5% ” At the end of October 2018, the coordination of Croatian caterers during the consultation on the needs of quotas for the import of foreign workers requested the required quota of 17.955 people. This figure was proposed on the basis of the then demographic situation of the Republic of Croatia, which is even more devastating today than a year ago.center_img Croatia full of life. A small country with big taxes Tourism is one of the most important components of the Croatian economy, generating over 20% of GDP. If the tourist season fails, the government will have to face the exodus of thousands of families who survive precisely thanks to catering and seasonal work, Medak points out. Such a negative trend continues, just before the tourist season. It also calls on the Government of the Republic of Croatia to address the seriousness of this situation and to urgently decide on an additional 5.000 quotas in the tourism and hospitality sector. If the competent institutions do not react promptly, the end of the potentially unsuccessful tourist season will bring incalculable damage to the Croatian economy, which will be almost impossible to mitigate. A photo of the price list of a Croatian restaurant is being shared on the Internet, which in an unusual way clearly shows guests how much the tax burden is in Croatia. I don’t know if this is an actual price list or just an illustration, but one thing is for sure – it’s just part of the tax burden, without the other levies and levies that every entrepreneur pays each month. The Coordination of Croatian Caterers appeals to the Ministry of Labor and Pension System and the Croatian Employment Service to send the 1600 available workers on the coast to work in tourism and catering to the nearest tourist and catering facilities in order to open a dialogue for employment. RESPONSE OF THE MINISTRY OF LABOR AND PENSION SYSTEM TO THE EMPLOYER’S APPEAL IN TOURISM: EMPLOYERS CONTACT CES RELATED NEWS: WILL WE FINALLY INTRODUCE THE SLOVENIAN MODEL FOR IMPORTING FOREIGN WORKERS FROM NEXT YEAR?last_img read more

Fed revisits idea of pledging to keep interest rates low

first_imgThe US dollar slightly extended losses against the yen and euro while the S&P 500 index edged higher after the release of the minutes.Outlook uncertainThe Fed has repeatedly said the US economic outlook remains highly uncertain and reiterated that a full economic recovery hinges on the battle to control the spread of the novel coronavirus, which has killed more than 127,000 people in the United States.Since the meeting, a surge in US infections has led several policymakers to warn that signs of a nascent economic recovery over the last few weeks could already be under threat as hard-hit states halt or reverse the re-opening of their economies.The US economy slipped into recession in February and economic output and employment are still far below pre-crisis levels despite a rebound as restrictions were eased. More than 30 million people were receiving unemployment checks in the first week of June, about a fifth of the labor force.At last month’s policy meeting, the Fed signaled it planned years of extraordinary support for the economy, with policymakers projecting the economy to shrink 6.5 percent in 2020 and the unemployment rate to be 9.3 percent at the end of the year.In addition to slashing interest rates, the central bank has also pumped trillions of dollars into the economy to keep credit flowing to businesses and households.Americans’ anxieties over the spread of the coronavirus are at the highest level in more than a month, a Reuters/Ipsos poll showed on Wednesday, a day after the United States recorded the biggest single-day rise in new cases since the pandemic began. Federal Reserve policymakers are looking at reviving a Great Recession-era promise to keep interest rates low until certain conditions are met, in a bid to deliver a more rapid recovery from the recession triggered by the coronavirus pandemic.The policymakers “generally indicated support” for tying rate-setting policy to specific economic outcomes, minutes from the US central bank’s June 9-10 policy meeting showed on Wednesday. “A number” favored a promise to leave rates low until inflation meets or even modestly exceeds the Fed’s 2 percent goal.A couple of policymakers preferred tying changes to rates to a specific unemployment rate; a “few others” wanted to promise easy monetary policy until a specific date in the future – an approach the Fed used effectively in 2012 and 2013. Topics :center_img Although two warned of the danger of adopting any such policy, citing financial stability risks, the minutes showed that policymakers overall supported giving the public more explicit forward guidance, both for rates and bond purchases, “as more information about the trajectory of the economy becomes available.”The readout showed much less support, and many questions, about alternate forms of support including control of the yield curve, a strategy in use by other central banks around the world.Fed officials anticipate the United States will suffer the worst economic downturn since World War Two, and they have no intent to let up on providing stimulus for the foreseeable future.“Members noted that they expected to maintain this target range until they were confident that the economy had weathered recent events and was on track to achieve the (rate-setting) Committee’s maximum-employment and price-stability goals,” the Fed said in the minutes.last_img read more

70 Seconds, 70 Years: Bombing of Chongqing

first_imgHi, in today’s 70 Seconds, 70 Years, we look at ordinary Chinese’s life during  the devastating bombing of Chongqing, one of the longest air raids in the history of WWII in which civilians were targeted.  In 1938, the Japanese military decided to destroy Chinese people’s morale by conducting air raids on the Kuomintang government’s provisional capital, Chongqing in southwestern China.   In the days that followed, for the residents of Chongqing, rushing into a shelter at the sound of the alarm became a daily routine, no matter whether they were eating, sleeping or walking on the street, given the intensity of the bombings.   However, even shelter was not a safe space, given that the lengthy raids resulted in hundreds dying of suffocation in the shelters.  Over 16,000 people lost their lives in the attacks on the city at the time. By all means, Chongqing was nearly wiped off the map, if not for the strength of the people there to persevere and rebuild.   I’m Wang Yizhi with CCTVNEWS, see you next time.last_img read more

McDowell wary of Open organisers

first_img This year players are reporting the course as hard and fast and there are high hopes for good scoring, but the Royal & Ancient will make sure the game’s elite are tested. Northern Irishman McDowell, the 2010 US Open winner, said: “Looking at the winning score, if the wind forecast is what they expect, which is fairly light – eight to 10 miles an hour, switching to the east on the weekend – I think it might be 10-, 12-under. “But it really just depends. They can get fairly evil with pin positions, the R&A, I have to say. They can get a little bit evil. These greens, there are some little corners on them that they can find. “Obviously weather is always going to play a massive factor. Let’s pray for a great, sunny, breezy weekend. That would be fantastic.” McDowell has arrived at the Open amid a run of inconsistent form, having won three of his last eight events but missed the cut in the other five, including at the last two majors. Yet he feels his fortunes are not as wildly contrasting as they appear and is in positive mood. He said: “They say winning is a habit, it’s a contagious habit. It’s certainly a habit we like to get into. You can say my season this year has not really been that way. “I haven’t fed off my victories maybe the way I needed to in the last few months. But those missed cuts, if you look at them – I missed by one at Augusta, missed by a couple at Players, missed by one at the Irish, missed by a couple at Wentworth, missed by a couple of hundred at the US Open. “It hasn’t really been as bad as it’s read. I have felt fairly decent with my game most of the year.” East Lothian has enjoyed perfect summer conditions ahead of this week’s championship at Muirfield and the forecast for the event itself looks similarly promising. It contrasts considerably from the last time the links hosted the Open in 2002, when a weekend storm ravaged the leaderboard and world number one Tiger Woods shot a third-round 81. Graeme McDowell is not getting carried away by the prospect of good weather at the Open – as event organisers can still be “a little bit evil”.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Malteenoes fight back against Everest after Yadram’s seven-wicket haul

first_imgHOME team, Malteenoes Sports Club (MSC) and Everest Cricket Club (ECC) were locked in a serious battle, despite a destructive spell of fast bowling from former West Indies U-19 all-rounder Bhaskar Yadram, in the GCA, GISE Star Party Rentals and Trophy Stall first division two-day cricket competition. Malteenoes won the toss yesterday morning and opted to take first strike, but they never settled in the middle.The openers, Joseph Cupidore and Clarence Baird, were sent back early, with Raylex Payne getting Joseph, and Yadram starting his dominance with the wicket of Baird. He then took six of the last eight wickets of the games.The 19-year-old finished with 7-68 from 14 overs – his best figures in first-division cricket. Malteenoes’ fightback was led by middle order batsmen, Nichosie Barker, who struck 22 (4×4, 1×6), skipper Steven Jacobs who added 25 (3×4, 1×6), Marcus Watkins who scored 24 (3×4), and Kellon Carmichael, who finished with an innings-high 43.Carmichael took on Yadram in his sixth over after hitting him for two sixes. In total, the all-rounder finished with five sixes, which helped Malteenoes reach 178 before they were bowled out in 40.2 overs. LEADING FROM THE FRONTJacobs then spun his way to four wickets in Malteenoes’ fightback, which has left the match precariously placed.National cricketer Tagenarine Chanderpaul, who opened the batting, has been able to weather the storm and is not out on 41 (5×4), but seven wickets have so far fallen.  Carmichael took opener Ronaldo Renee and the captain, Akshaya Persaud, who batted at number three, for eight and six runs respectively, while Jacobs claimed four of the five other wickets.Amir Khan, who has been in form in second-division cricket, showed fight with an aggressive 31 (3×4, 3×6), but he also fell to Jacobs, who has had an excellent competition so far with the ball.After Khan lost his wicket, Troy Gonsalves hit 17 runs, but Barker got his wicket, while Jacobs had Ritchie Looknauth caught for a duck to swing the pendulum.Chanderpaul is still at the crease. When play continues this morning, Everest are trailing by 31 runs on first innings.last_img read more
