Friday Night Open Thread: A Numbers Game
Here's some of the news I missed while at work today:
6,000 pounds of cocaine seized in Florida is worth $80 million. In Sacramento, 475 pounds of meth seized last week was worth $100 million -- until the Sheriff decided it was 600 pounds and worth $200 million. In India, authorities seized a lab and found 16 pounds of meth authorities value at RS 13 crore, around $3 million. (Rs 16 Cr = USD 4 million). Do they just pull these numbers out of a hat?
In other news: Who's the muscle behind the Zetas alleged murder of migrants in Mexico? Is it the work of the former Guatemalan elite troops, known as Kaibiles, who partnered with the Zetas several years ago? (More here, here and here.)
What else? The ATF and FBI are squabbling over turf again.
This is an open thread, all topics welcome.
