My point was not that Dog is in imminent danger of being turned over to a Mexican Voodoo doctor, my point was that (high level) corruption in Mexico is well known. Certain posters are trying to deny or minimize this well known information. The Voodoo (or Santeria) types would kidnap their own victims off the street, not from Mexican jails.

Demaris discusses in his book what he saw in Mexican jails, the justice system, and Mexican drug dealers - a high profile American like Dog will have his (and his relatives) net worth carefully measured. Then the cops, lawyers, and judge (and fellow inmates) will extract as much of it (or all) as they can. As Demaris points out in his book, in a Mexican jail, nothing is free. If the mexicans could sell the meat, they would chop you up for tacos.

You are probably right. Dog has a lot of money, and he and his sons are worth a LOT more alive than dead. There are a LOT of people in the Mexican extortion system that will benefit economically from the incarceration of him and his sons. However, there is still the chance that he is a "dead man walking" if he is turned over to them.

BTW - I think this whole matter speaks a bit to the corruption of the DOJ in this country that he was ever arrested and jailed at the request of Mexican officials.
