In a series from 4/2011, Chapo is talking w/his bodyguard & gunman Cholo Ivan who has been fighting w/the police. Chapo tells Ivan to tie the cops up instead of brawling w/them to "make sure we don't execute innocent people."
A little later, Ivan complains that the cops should respect him and behave.
"Listen," Chapo says, "you already beat them up once. They should listen now."
"Is he receiving the monthly payment?" Chapo asks.
"Yes," Gato responds. "He's receiving the monthly payment."
Chapo tells the commander that Gato is from "the company" and asks the commander to "take care of him."
"Whatever we can do for you," Chapo says, "you can count on it."
The commander says, "You have a friend here."
"Take it easy with the police," Chapo says.
"Well," Ivan says, "you taught us to be like a wolf, acting like a wolf. I'm remembering and that is how I like to do it."
The IT guy who built Chapo's comms system then helped the FBI crack it is expected to be a witness at the trial.
He is likely the same witness described in a govt filing last week as having suffered "a nervous breakdown" after the cartel found out & came looking for him.
