Scary Interview

Pablo Escobar's ex-chief hit man sat down for an interview from his prison in Colombia with the newspaper El Tiempo. This quote is generally reflective of the tenor of his comments:
I'm a privileged man because I have seen my worst enemies fall, I watched Pancho Herrera die like a dog and saw the Rodríguez Orejuelas extradited, scared and crying. A person watches his worst enemies die from jail and it's very gratifying.
Evidently the years in the can have not softened him. This reminds of the bit from Richard Pryor when he went to prison looking for solidarity with the oppressed, and came out saying "Thank God we have penitentiaries".
