The video that has been circulating on social media shows the moment El Taliban was thrown alive into the Caribbean Sea with an anchor tied to him.

He can be seen struggling in the water with his hands and legs zip-tied and an anchor tied to his body.

Drug cartels and how they operate
Drug cartels are criminal organizations that are formed by independent drug lords who work together to dominate the illegal drug trade and improve their profits.
These cartels are extremely well-organized, well-financed, efficient, and ruthless.
They are common in Latin American countries, and rivalries between multiple drug cartels cause them to wage turf wars against each other.
The cartels form with the purpose of controlling the supply of the illegal drug trade and maintaining prices at a high level.
Drug cartels have existed in Mexico for many years, but they did not become the powerful, violent organizations prevalent today until the 1990s.
The cartels in Mexico are the leading suppliers of cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, and other illicit narcotics to the United States.
The cartels and the drug trade fuel rampant corruption and violence in Mexico, contributing to tens of thousands of homicides in the country each year.
Drug cartels have a basic structure, but there are other operating groups within the drug cartels.
For example, the drug producers and suppliers, although not considered in the basic structure, are critical operators of any drug cartel, along with the smugglers, distributors, sales representatives, accountants and money launderers.
Furthermore, the arms suppliers operate in a completely different circle; they are technically not considered part of the cartel’s logistics.
The drug cartels generate revenues in billions of dollars each year, and the money transformed the cartels from loosely associated groups of traffickers to fully-fledged criminal organizations with operations beyond.
The cartels have grown, splintered, forged new alliances, and battled one another for territory.
The cartels that pose the most significant drug trafficking threats to the United States are the Sinaloa Cartel, the Jalisco New Generation Cartel, the Gulf Cartel, the Zetas and the Beltrán Leyva Organization.
