He yis what he yis, and that's all what he yis.

I guess with that kind of green behind him, he didn't need any olive oyl.

Well I'm sure he learned his lesson.

I should've known something was up with that dude when he used that damn pipe for just about everything EXCEPT smoking.

I will gladly pay him Tuesday for  a murder today.

You don't let someone go when you know they killed 300+ and claim to have orchestrated or helped with the killing of 3000+

At that point, you just euthanize them.  That kind of person is never capable of being rehabilitated.  They don't see killing as something that is bad, and that's a problem.

Well?  If 3000+ more on not?

So this guy kills 300+ people, assassinates political leaders and helps plan countless other murders and gets a lighter sentence then some people convicted of selling weed in the US. Sure, that makes sense.

Sammy the bull Gravano only got a year for 19 murders.

I wonder if he got his nickname from the manner of his killings...?

Depends, some people need killing. If he was killing drug dealers and other violent criminals...I'm not sure euthanizing him is the way to go.

/Drone pilots kill more people, should we euthanize them too?
//Some people need killing/droning
///If he killed an innocent, drone his ass with a hellfire

From how much he talked during The Two Escobars, he could write a long-ass book.

I'm betting Washington DC was involved ..

Not sure who I'd fear more for ratting out my cohorts . . . the mafia or a drug cartel.  I think I'd be more afraid of the drug cartel.

The mafia would just kill you. Drug cartel would be more creative in your death. Your family would also probably be eliminated.

Probably safer in prison.

Ya, mafias in general probably would not hurt your children... (though the Chechen mafia...)

You're kinda obligated to when he's served 20 years and is a state's witness against a high ranking gov't official who orchestrated the murder of a presidential candidate.

I'm not saying it's right, I'm just explaining their justification.

But practically speaking, I would think the drug cartel already eliminated his family when he first started ratting them out 20 years ago.

That doesn't make sense for Columbians? Or Americans? Or either? Leaving confused.

Max sentence in Colombia is 30 rarely is it given and rarely is any full sentence served.

Colombia had a serial killer who killed and raped 300+ kids all over south america and he is free.

I'd look down my nose at the Colombian judicial system, but I'm American.

How can Columbia free Popeye? Wasn't he a Paramount property?

So Popeye switched sides?
