27 min • Society, Politics & World Affairs, Crime • 2019

By the time Mexican soldiers showed up to arrest the son of the notorious drug lord, “El Chapo”, the city of Culiacán was already burning. And when they handed him a cellphone to call off his henchmen, it would only get worse. THE WEEKLY travels to Sinaloa State, where the story of a city under siege was told in real time on social media by the terrified civilians, over-matched security forces and cartel gunmen recording on their phones. Watch the reconstruction of deadly shootouts and government missteps - through the eyes of the people who were there that day. (Episode 20 of 30)
