  • Wealthy Hamptons Residents build lux panic rooms to hide from "MS 13"

    There is a specter haunting the Hamptons — one that’s turning some of the priciest properties in the country into fortresses equipped with bulletproof glass, weaponry and panic rooms.

    “I sleep with a gun underneath my pillow: a Walther PPK/S, the same one James Bond carried,” said John Catsimatidis, owner of Red Apple Group and Gristedes Foods, who has a vacation property in East Quogue. “[My wife] Margo prefers a shotgun. Although, once, she thought she heard something, got the shotgun out and shot through the door.”

    The billionaire and his family, like others in the Hamptons, are shaken up over concerns that the vicious Salvadorian gang MS-13 is too close for comfort. In April, members of the gang massacred four young men behind a soccer field in Central Islip. Three months later, a Hampton Bays brothel raided by police was found to be tagged with an MS-13 sign. And in 2016, a man with MS-13 connections broke into a Southampton home and sexually assaulted a woman.


    • The Freedom of the CJNG

      Direct family members and politicians close to Nemesio Oseguera "El Mencho" have been released during the last year, among them his wife, an in-law, and a son-in-law. Authorities boast of the capture of more than 30 cartel members, 15 of them ringleaders, during the same period. However, even with the reward increase of 30 million pesos, the CJNG leader cannot be located.

      The number of captured has increased after Mexican authorities declared that, in the fight against drug trafficking, the Michoacán criminal group became the priority objective. This is the cartel with presence in 25 states, generator of violence in the states of Jalisco, Colima, Michoacán, Nayarit, Baja California, Quintana Roo, and Veracruz.

      The CJNG is also considered a threat by the United States. According to the Drug Control Administration (DEA), the Mexican organization doubled its presence in that nation, as in 2015 it had presence in eleven cities, but in 2014 it expanded to 14 more areas, where mainly methamphetamines from Guadalajara, Uruapan, and Culiacán are distributed.
