Guzman Lopez managed to escape when members of his cartel greatly outmatched Mexican forces.  It began with a siege on the city of Culiacan on Thursday by the Sinaloa Cartel, once operated by El Chapo.

Let’s Talk Politics: Abortion

Brianna Pineda, Staff Writer

October 11, 2019

The topic of abortion has always been a controversy in our society. Though every state has at least one abortion clinic, there are some states in the United States that have set restrictions to have an abortion. Restrictions such as the 20 week abortion ban and the heartbeat bills and so many more make it harder for women to get an abortion, and go against the ruling of Roe v. Wade. Now, when I say restrictions I mean exactly that. Since the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court case in 1973, abortion is fully legal in the U.S. R...

Let’s talk politics: Death Penalty

Brianna Pineda, Staff Writer

September 12, 2019

The death penalty first began in 1608, and still exists in 29 states in America. Most of the 29 states that have not abolished the death penalty are mainly Republican. The states in favor of the death penalty say that it is only given to suspects allegedly committed a heinous crime.  If only the people who really did commit heinous crimes were given the death penalty, then why is it that since 1973, 156 people on death row have been proven innocent? There have also been many death penalty cases that have been overturne...
