Crazy Revenge: How Bibi Took Down the Biggest Cartel after Her Husband Cheated

Antônio Lopes, known as Nem, was Rio de Janeiro’s most notorious drug lord. He lived in Roncinha, the biggest and most well-known slum and provided all the rich kids in the surrounding areas with a substantial dose of drugs. He was all-knowing and smart and thought he had his bases covered when he restricted his associates from using cell phones, computers, and social media in order to protect his business.

In fact, “he regarded the mobile phone as a menace. Members of his cartel were forbidden to mention his name on the phone. When they did, they would refer to him by phrases such as ‘the one next to God’, ” Wired reported. But he couldn’t control everyone — especially the wives of his employees.

Enter Bibi Perigrosa, the wife of Saulo de Sá Silva, second in command in the organization. He cheated, she was livid and so she took to social media to speak her mind. In one instance, she posted her cell phone number and that was the beginning of the end.

Perigrosa and Saulo’s cell phones were tapped leading Brazilian investigators straight to Nem, seriously damaging his drug business. He’s now serving a 12-year sentence.

US Prosecutors Allege That Honduran President Hernández Said He Wanted to ‘Shove Drugs Up the Noses of Gringos’

They say the truth is stranger than fiction, and in this case, that saying happens to be true. New reports from federal prosecutors in New York have come out that implicate Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernández in drug trafficking, embezzlement, and fraud.

For years, Honduras and the United States have publicly touted themselves as partners in global the war on drugs. But it seems that, privately, President Hernández felt differently.

Prosecutors allege that Hernández said that he wanted to “shove the drugs right up the noses of the gringos”.

Federal prosecutors say that Hernández “said that he wanted to make the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration think that Honduras was fighting drug trafficking, but that instead he was going to eliminate extradition.”

The allegations against President Hernández are part of a larger drug trafficking case prosecutors have against, Geovanny Fuentes, a prolific Honduran trafficker whom authorities arrested in Miami.

Fuentes alleges that President Hernandez accepted bribes in exchange for protecting a cocaine laboratory and drug shipments headed towards the U.S. They say President Juan Orlando Hernández used his nation’s armed forces to protect huge shipments of cocaine in exchange for hefty bribes.

The case also alleges that Hernandez funneled aid money from the U.S. to non-governmental organizations.

The Honduran president isn’t explicitly named in the documents, but is instead referred to as “co-conspirator 4”. But the documents reference his political position as well as his relationship to his brother, Juan Antonio Hernández, who was also convicted of drug smuggling in 2019.

It’s worth mentioning that the 2019 case against Hernández’s brother also named President Hernández as a co-conspirator. That case alleged that President Hernández had accepted approximately $1 million in bribes from El Chapo.

President Hernández is denying the allegations and claiming that they are retaliations by cartel lords for his hardline stance against drug trafficking.

Recently, his office tweeted out: “The claim that Pres. Hernández supposedly accepted drug money from Geovanny Daniel Fuentes Ramirez, or gave protection or coordination to drug traffickers is 100% false, and appears to be based on lies of confessed criminals who seek revenge and to reduce their sentences.”

But at home, Hondurans seemed to have lost faith in their president. In fact, many are suspicious of his shady connections and seemingly never-ending scandals. Some Hondurans are reportedly worried that President Hernández may try to “illegally extend” his time in office in order to avoid prosecution by the United States”.

As of now, the prospects of him being prosecuted by the Trump administration are dubious at best.

Hernández and Trump have historically had a cozy relationship based on how fervently the Honduran president supported Trump’s strict immigration policies.

“[Indictment] will probably depend on the political will or political decision of the incoming Biden administration,” said InSight Crime senior investigator Hector Silva to Vice.

One Instagram Page Is Exposing All Of The Gay Men Willfully Breaking Covid Guidelines To Party

The pandemic has dragged on for almost a year and it is getting very exhausting. However, that doesn’t mean you get to just break Covid guidelines. Gaysovercovid, an Instagram page, is exposing all of the gay men posting clear violations to Covid guidelines and it’s just so shameful.

GaysOverCovid is masterfully shaming gays who think they are above Covid guidelines.

Covid has killed more than 1,976,000 people around the world. The virus has forced governments into lockdowns to save lives. However, some people have continued to party and gather and travel with no regard for the consequences of their actions. Health officials have been urging people to avoid nonessential travel, not gather, and follow basic guidelines to keep people safe.

The account is exposing the white privilege and hypocrisy of some healthcare workers.

The vaccine is currently in circulation but the vaccine only prevents you from getting severely ill from the virus. You are still able to contract and spread the virus. The end of 2020 was a real booming moment for the Instagram page as gay men flocked in mass to Puerto Vallarta and Brazil to ring in the New Year while flouting life-saving Covid guidelines.

A lot of the men exposed quickly make their social media accounts private.

Maybe it is because they are embarrassed that they are part of the spread problem. Or maybe they are doing some soul searching after their actions. Most likely, they think that making their accounts private long enough will give everything time to blow over so they can act like normal members of society when we are finally through this hard time.

The Instagram page has even helped to expose underground parties.

Covid is still killing people. Los Angeles, where many of these gay men live, is among one of the worst outbreaks in the nation. It is so important that people keep doing their part and being responsible. We are nearing the end of Covid with vaccination plans rolling out across the nation. Be patient. be responsible. Wear a mask. Don’t travel. Avoid crowds. Do the right thing.
