Hmmm, this is an interesting development a high level Mexican military official is being released by the US in exchange for another they want even more:

Seems to me both should be under arrest, instead of letting the military guy go.

Though of course in Mexico, with such high level penetration of the government, legal system, military, and law enforcement, arresting people can be very problematical, as is shown by what happened when they tried to arrest El Chapo's son too, and bungled that very badly:

Given the very strong reaction to the arrest of El Chapo's son, I also find it VERY interesting that more unrest didn't occur after the drug kingpin was arrested, and then transferred to the USA.

A number of people connected to the above arrest attempts have been assassinated too (law enforcement officers and prosecutors), so it is a very dangerous business trying to take down the drug cartel leaders and those in their employment. Even reporting about the drug cartels in Mexico has resulted in many there being killed.

Similar in many ways to the problems associated with the Mafia, and similar, in Italy.
