Lawyer for Mexican Illegal ADMITS His Client Killed Two Cops
What a defense! This lawyer for an illegal admitted in open court that his client killed two cops.
Democrats must love 37-year-old illegal from Mexico, Luis Bracamontes. He killed two deputies during a shooting rampage in Northern California. He had been deported twice to Mexico and had a drug conviction.
As The Sacramento Bee reported,
He has repeatedly admitted to it in court hearings, and at the start of his trial Tuesday his own lawyer essentially convicted the illegal immigrant of killing Sacramento sheriff’s Deputy Danny Oliver and Placer sheriff’s Deputy Michael Davis Jr. in a daylong spree of violence that started in a Motel 6 parking lot near Arden Fair Mall.
“Let me be clear and up front,” public defender Jeffrey Barbour told the jury hearing his case. “Mr. Bracamontes is responsible for the death of Deputy Danny Oliver and Detective Michael Davis.
“He shot them both.”
I’m sure Californians can feel proud that Governor Jerry Brown offers sanctuary for such solid citizens.
Talk about your poster child for illegal immigration and sanctuary cities, Bracamontes knows how to impress. But it gets better.
While his attorney’s statement offered an extraordinary admission, things got more interesting. The proceedings devolved into a spectacle of the defendant threatening to kill more people. Bracamontes then giggles as a prosecutor described his crime spree. As the prosecutor Rod Norgaard described the outbreak of violence, the defendant boasted:
“I wish I had killed more of the mother——-!”
And if that wasn’t enough to send chills throughout the community, perhaps the threat of Democrats releasing him back on the streets will.
Smiling broadly, Bracamontes added, “I will break out soon and I will kill more, kill whoever gets in front of me … There’s no need for a f—— trial.”
The Left won’t admit this, but there are many Bracamontes on the streets, and mostly in sanctuary cities. And while Democrats want gun-control, and cite mental illness as a reason for such, what safeguards can they implement against those here illegally?
Back to the Trial
That outburst by Bracamontes caused to Sacramento Superior Court Judge Steve White briefly removing the jury, then warning Bracamontes.
“You will not disrupt this trial, you will not speak out,” White told him. “If you do, you will be removed from the courtroom.”
I’m sure Bracamontes took that threat seriously.
Was he looking for an insanity deal? Perhaps. His lawyer seemed to angle in that direction when he admitted that Bracamontes killed two police officers. His attorneys asked the judge to reconsider his finding that Bracamontes was mentally competent for trial.
“Your motion is denied,” White told Barbour. He then had the jury come back in and instructed them not to pay any attention to what had happened. All of them indicated they could do so, and Norgaard concluded his opening statement just before noon.
Ironically, this story isn’t over. We have no idea what California will do with this man. All their bogus “laws” protect heinous criminals like him.
So what did this future Democrat voter do?
According to the Daily Mail,
The incident started about 10.30am in the parking lot of the Motel 6 in Sacramento.
Sacramento County Deputy Danny Oliver, 47, approached a suspicious-looking car, but the occupants immediately opened fire.
He was shot in the forehead with an assault rifle at close range and did not have time to draw his weapon. He died in the hospital.
After Oliver was shot, his partner fired at the attackers, who drove about a mile before attempting a carjacking.
The attackers then stole a red Ford pickup from a gardener and fled to the Sierra Nevada foothills city of Auburn in neighboring Placer County, about 30 miles northeast of Sacramento.
But the crime spree had only begun for Bracamontes. He had one more law enforcement officer to kill.
As the article continues,
That is when officer Michael Davis Jr. and his partner spotted the car parked alongside the road.
Both were shot with an AR-15-type assault weapon, Placer County sheriff’s spokeswoman Dena Erwin said.
Davis, who had been working in law enforcement since 1996 – the last 10 years a homicide investigator – died from his injuries.
His partner Jeff Davis – no relation – a 17-year department veteran, was treated for a gunshot wound in the arm.
But Leftist have a good defense for their sanctuary citizen.
Bracamontes was high on methamphetamine, and described as paranoid and agitated at the time of his arrest. He had written a suicide note while holed up in his house, before deciding to surrender to authorities.
Prosecutors say the suicide note was written after Bracamontes turned on the burners of the home’s gas stove and tried to have it ignite to kill him and any officers who rushed in. But then the coward Bracamontes crawled out of the house and surrendered meekly.
