    I'm guessing there's ~270 mil in that one corner alone. To have that much money in cash... [​IMG]

    What could you buy though? There is so much anti-money laundering legislation now, I doubt you could walk into any exotic car dealer, jewelry shop, etc. and throw down a few hundred grand in cash and buy anything.

    Yet somehow these guys still have yachts, massive plantations, and garages full of exotics. Maybe in the US with the SS-like IRS it's more difficult, but elsewhere I'm pretty sure it's just a matter of bribing the right people. Once your money is in the system it becomes easier to move around. Even normally secretive countries like those in Panama will open up their files if there's a strong money-laundering case against someone. Even so, it's rarely the money-laundering that gets them. You probably know this but money-laundering cases in general are extremely difficult to prosecute outside of the US.

    Anyway, if nothing else, 270 mil buys you a ton of Grade A poon for the rest of your life, and that is worth something imo. [​IMG]

    You could buy off the federal police, judges, prosecutors, and drug enforcement cops.

    Oh wait [​IMG]

    You know, they'd get away with it if they weren't so violent. If they limited their killing to the competition, I don't think anyone would really care, but it's when they start whacking people in broad daylight and killing innocent civilians that even crooked pols/cops/etc have no choice but to act.

    In my experience, handling the enormous piles of cash generated by dealing drugs is a legitimate pain in the ass. One of my partners did buy a new car with a paper bag of Benjies, but aside from that, trying to store and then spend the profits was just a hassle.

    You live in the states. I went to boarding school with a couple colombians. They owned a huge yacht that definitely cost more than a few mil.

    Hell, I even knew some local bigtime dealers. My brother was friends with the son of a big hell's angel guy. The cops knew who he was, knew he dealt drugs, but it took them 15 years to finally nail him and seize his assets (which they did). It's really not that easy to nail someone for money laundering or other financial crimes.

    Not only does it take money laundering, but the man washed his tiger so much that the stripes came off [​IMG]

    on the state level that happens and work reasonably well in keeping the peace. calderon though is messing things up by using the military to do operations againts traquetos thus starting the retribution killings.
    and the kicker is this if you are caught alive by the military all you have to do is pay a 1 million dollars to a panista lawyer to get you out.

    I went to military school with the sons of the man responsible for most of the schwag coming across the Texas border. He didn't seem to have a problem buying anything and everything that his kids could have wanted. He's also married to a former Miss Mexico. The man is pretty intelligent- grows the weed between rows of avocado plants, so it's indistinguishable by helicopter, and pretty much runs 3 border area towns. They sent their kids out of Mexico after their uncle was kidnapped by whatever gang is currently working on taking over the border.

    Sounds like an awesome life. Not.

    When you make that kind of money you will be out on the streets again in no time.

    Those gold Jesus guns are fantastic.

    They are so tasteless, they transcend taste.
