Wait, “playing”? Anyway, welcome back to the States, John McAfee. ABC News scored an exclusive interview with him. More details about his stay in Miami Beach so far: ”They said, ‘Mr. McAfee, please step forward.’ I was met by a dozen or maybe fewer officers. I said, ‘Am I arrested?’ They said, ‘No, sir, I am here to help you.’ That felt the best of all.” McAfee says that, now that he’s back in the U.S., he’s working to get his girlfriends — aged 17 and 20 — out of Belize.

A scary new development in the global “War on Drugs”
Authorities fear that notorious drug cartel Los Zetas and the infamous Mara Salvatrucha street-gang have joined forces to create a criminal empire that stretches from Mexico’s northern border to Guatemalan’s southern border. Mara Salvatrucha, most commonly known as MS-13 by U.S. citizens,  members have reportedly been trained by the Zetas at camps throughout Mexico, and are also receiving weapons from the cartel. Authorities say they have recorded conversations among inmates that confirm the truce, and point to the Maras’ increased use of military-grade weapons, instead of handguns, in Guatemala as proof that the two groups are cooperating. Reports also suggest that the Zetas are considering recruiting 5,000 new members, all of whom would be trained, for Mara Salvatrucha. (photo by markarinafotos) source
