Why risk anyone's safety - toss a grenade and let it sink

Badass, but I don't feel any safer.

The only loads the feds find are the loads that the cartels want them to find.

It's how the agreement works.

Pretty cool. But if that is a true submarine, why didn't he just submerge?

Most of those "subs" are only semi-submersible. They're home built by the cartels and are pretty bare bones.

You can see the exhaust pipe on top of the sub, and it routes down below the water to avoid aerial IR detection. Being semi-submerged also makes it super hard to see from above.

I'm sure the cartels have fully submersible, but this isn't one, I don't think.

Are you trying to say that they were 'too high'

Now THAT would have been badass if he popped the hatch and dropped one down there. That video was pretty wild though. Hell they could have rammed it and sunk the thing for all I care. Thatís some crazy work they have to do out there.

Just another Drug Cartel running submersible delivering fresh sandwiches and lemonade.

That first guy is lucky that hatch didn't open with the greeting of an AK-47.

If he keeps up with this process, he will be very short termed. And real bad asses don't do the stupid risk act.

I don't get it. Why risk a life, just rope the thing & drag it to a stop.
I do like the idea of moving target practice though. That would stop repeat offenders too.
