Even drug lords pay too much cock tax

You?d think if one of the last remaining drug lords who has endless cash and access to about as much crumpet as a man can fit into a reasonable sized harem, you wouldn?t need another one. Unfortunately for el Loco it wasn?t enough and he got taxed more than it was ever worth.

The files revealed crucial details about Barrera’s links to the group, including the name and role of his sister’s son. That unnamed nephew was persuaded to co-operate with the Colombians and now stands to share in the $5 million American bounty on Barrera’s head and is expected to be moved to the US with a new identity.

He disclosed that his uncle only trusted his closest relatives and a small-knit circle of aides who served as drivers and assistants, including several women, for whom the paunchy lothario had a marked weakness.

The turncoat nephew provided vital information. But fearing that he might stop co-operating, and in what could be a script for a Hollywood thriller, the Colombians managed to insert a “honey-trap” female into Barrera’s entourage.

El Loco may have been a top drug lord but he still got taxed at a marginal rate which was more than an sensible man would be willing to pay.
