and this is one of the reasons why: Humberto Leal has assumed ambient temperature, despite Mexico screaming and threatening and Obama pleading and demanding.
As to Mexico demanding and threatening, 'Screw you'. Your President told the truth about how illegal immigrants are treated in Mexico(thrown in jail, thrown out of the country, etc.) and then demanded that we WELCOME illegal aliens and give them lots of benefits; now you want a rapist/murderer to be given clemency because he didn't talk to the ambassador or staff? How many American citizens have been thrown into jail in Mexico on bullshit charges? And only got out when they managed to pull enough money together to buy their way out? Last I heard, Mexico is still the only country where our State Department actually recommended bribing the cop if you're arrested for pretty much anything, because the Mexican justice system is so corrupt and inefficient you're usually screwed if you get involved in it.
So I'll shed no tears for this piece of garbage.
After his execution, relatives of Leal who had gathered in Guadalupe, Mexico, burned a T-shirt with an image of the American flag in protest. Leal's uncle Alberto Rodriguez criticized the U.S. justice system and the Mexican government and said, "There is a God who makes us all pay."
Well, your sorry bastard just paid, and let's remember what for:
Leal was sentenced to death for the 1994 murder of 16-year-old Adria Sauceda, whose brutalized nude body was found hours after he left a San Antonio street party with her. She was bludgeoned with a piece of 30- to 40-pound chunk of asphalt.
There was evidence Sauceda had been bitten, strangled and raped. A large stick that had a screw protruding from it was left in her body.
I'm fucking sick of people- Mexican or Indian or whatever- excusing what one of theirs does simply because he's one of them. In 1977 three Girl Scouts were raped and murdered at a camp here in Oklahoma. A suspect, who happened to be Indian, was developed. One of the OSBI agents involved wrote that one thing that made hunting him more difficult was the attitude of a bunch of Indians in southeast OK: "They're white girls, so why should I care if he did it?" Right now we have murderers who escaped back to Mexico that the Mexican government KNOWS where they are, but will not extradite them(from what I've heard won't jail them or anything either) because "Some of your states execute murderers." Which I have the nasty feeling boils down to "So he killed some anglo, we don't care." Maybe not, but I fear it does.
