Mexican President Defends Decision to Free Drug Kingpin’s Son 

Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador on Friday defended freeing the son of drug kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, whom police let go during a shootout with drug gangs.

Lopez Obrador said police “did well” to free Ovidio Guzman, contending that “capturing a criminal can’t be worth more than people’s lives.”

Police briefly captured Guzman late Thursday but released him when cartel gunmen in the northwestern Mexican city of Culiacan surrounded authorities and opened fire across the city, sparking widespread gunbattles.
