Angry about Casey Anthony? Be angry about Humberto Leal Garcia instead
Yeah, I think Casey Anthony got away with murder, and she was found “Not Guilty” [not "innocent", but "Not Guilty"] by a jury. Some are arguing (one of whom was Alan Dershowitz of OJ Simpson fame today on talk radio) that it’s better that one guilty person goes free than an innocent go to prison; I’ll agree with that, but only because I believe there is Justice beyond this Earth and people like Casey Anthony will face Final Judgment in the end. We won’t see it or be satisfied here on Earth today, but no one lives forever, not even the guilty who go free.
A leftist ideologue chief executive here in the United States is actively campaigning to stop the execution of a Mexican national who was convicted of the brutal rape and murder of a 16 year old girl in San Antonio, Texas back in 1994. When I say “brutal”, I’d like to spare you the details, but I can’t do that. Skip ahead past the blockquotes if you don’t want to know;
In the early hours of May 21, 1994, 16-year-old Adria Sauceda and dozens of others attended a raucous Southside house party on Vincent Street, where witnesses reported seeing a dazed Sauceda — pumped full of alcohol, cocaine, and marijuana — pulled to the backyard. There she was stripped and circled by eight or nine men, each “taking turns” on the disoriented teenager. Friends who came to her aid were told to shut up, drink, and quit spoiling the party.
Humberto Leal later abducted this already brutally savaged teenager and raped her some more before finally ending your misery by crushing in her skull with a 35 lb chunk of asphalt. When police found her dead and ravaged body on the side of the dirt road where Leal left her, there was still a large stick that had a screw protruding from it that Leal left jammed up her lifeless body after he raped her with it.
Late in June of this year, a federal judge refused to stop the execution of Garcia, which is scheduled to take place July 7 – Thursday of this week. Death not by bashing his skull in, or penetrating his orifices with foreign objects, but death by just going to sleep and not waking up; lethal injection. Read more here if you want particulars.
The US “chief executive” in this case, siding with the despicable people trying to help this brutal murderer, is of course the Chief Law Enforcement Officer of the United States of America; the one person in the United States you would hope would be representing US legal interests, rather than the interests of foreign-born nationals in the United States illegally. It is, of course, Barack Hussein Obama.
Getting tired of his working against the United States rather than for the United States yet?
Here’s what Obama is doing to attempt to get this murderer released (Via the UK Guardian);
President Barack Obama is attempting to block the execution in Texas on Thursday of a Mexican man because it would breach an international convention and do “irreparable harm” to US interests.
The White House has asked the US Supreme Court to put the execution of Humberto Leal Garcia on hold while Congress passes a law that would prevent the convicted rapist and murderer from being put to death along with dozens of other foreign nationals who were denied proper access to diplomatic representation before trials for capital crimes.
The administration moved after the governor of Texas, Rick Perry,brushed aside appeals from diplomats, top judges, senior military officers, the United Nations and former president George W Bush to stay Leal’s execution because it could jeopardise American citizens arrested abroad as well as US diplomatic interests.
The argument from the left, such as the Texas ACLU, is that by executing Garcia, US citizens will be placed in grave danger abroad (as if US citizens in Mexico aren’t in danger as it is) by denying the “Mexican citizen” his right “…under the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations, to seek assistance and legal counsel from the Mexican consulate.”
On the other hand, being here since age 2, Garcia should just be granted US citizenship, according to these same leftists. But I’m going off on a tangent…
Instead of the ACLU and Obama hand-wringing over a convicted murderer, maybe they could pay a little attention to the victims?
Every morning as Rene Sauceda gets ready for the day, he pulls a South San Antonio High School newspaper dated May 25, 1995, out of his closet.
It was published just after the first anniversary of his daughter Adria’s death and about a month before the capital murder trial of Humberto Leal Jr., the man suspected of killing her, was set to begin.
The South San newspaper is folded to reveal a specific ad on a page’s bottom corner. “In memory of Adria Sauceda,” it begins. Her dates of birth and death — Jan. 27, 1978, and May 21, 1994 — are in small type near the end.
“I look at that every day,” Sauceda, 64, said as his fingers smoothed the pages. “Her friends paid to have that put in the paper. She had so many friends.”
In the 17 years since Adria was found bludgeoned to death with a rock and left naked on a dirt road after being sexually assaulted with a stick, her family has kept silent, even as efforts to stay Leal’s execution, set for Thursday, have grown louder amid a tug-of-war over the right of foreign suspects to be offered access to their consulates.
The only advocates for the victims seem to be The Texas parole board, the Texas Attorney General, and Governor Rick Perry (so far);
“At this point, it is clear that Leal is attempting to avoid execution by overwhelming the state and the courts with as many meritless lawsuits and motions as humanly possible,” Stephen Hoffman, an assistant Texas attorney general, told the court Tuesday in a brief opposing appeals to stop Leal’s execution.
Working against the State of Texas and the legal citizens of the United States (once again), Barack Obama and his henchman Eric Holder. Is that even a surprise anymore? The fact that the two people most expected to uphold law and order would consistently end up the two most often trying to undermine the rule of law to benefit their own leftist ideology?
Again, elections have consequences, and votes cast in favor of candidates who make us “feel good”, or who don’t have a big ol’ goiter on their cheeks (because of cancer), or don’t get trashed on Saturday Night Live and the Nightly News; these votes harm us all in the end.
Let’s not make that mistake again.
