Illegal immigrant acquitted of murdering Kate Steinle in case that sparked ‘sanctuary cities’ debate. San Francisco is one of the few places on the planet where jurors are so wacky they let a guy like this off the hook. Not even involuntary manslaughter. This sends out the message that it’s OK for illegals to kill white people in California. We hope ICE grabs this guy and that the Feds go after him.

Had he shot the seal as he initially intended to do (he confessed), he would have gone to prison for a long ass time. There is a miscarriage of justice here as his antecedents were not allowed in court is it my understanding… that is crazy.

I believe this is a racist and low expectations ruling. He is a poor, misunderstood, Mexican illegal so OF COURSE he doesn’t know how to operate a gun… that he stole from a locked car and tested it out by aiming at a seal and he was a bad shot and it ricochet and hit an innocent woman…. it was an “accident”.

I don’t understand how the jury can find him guilty of illegally possessing a gun and not guilty of manslaughter because of illegally possessing a gun.

This is a tough one to swallow. I really want to take the route of saying that you reap what you sow, but I really don’t know this young lady or her politics. I certainly hoe her family sues everyone involved in letting this guy go.
Doing so only exacerbates the problem of more money going out than coming in.

I am waiting for a family member of someone killed in a case like this to just go after those who allow this stupidity to exist. Judges, mayors, state reps, or whatever, & doing so with extreme prejudice. I think it’s only a matter of time, or go after the perp. Here is a little something to make you smile. Not involving an illegal, but it makes the point…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_PUE8fYxjq8

Having just served in a jury, usually I stick up for them and their verdicts. THIS jury was full of dumb-f*cks!

Sarah Palin was right, San Francisco is NOT safe. nIt needs to be avoided at all costs. as far as this Illegal piece of shit goes, I volunteer to “drive” him back to Mexico. He might be cold and too stiff to walk across the border but a slingshot would do the trick. And then his f*cking lawyer starts with the trump/Russia shit at a press conference. He also needs to be “driven” to Mexico.

It was a SF jury; they found the gun guilty of murder and concluded that the non-traditional citizen holding it when it went it off was merely an innocent bystander.

As I always say ahead of time, I am not a lawyer… but I don’t see how you can avoid finding him guilty of at least involuntary manslaughter. He’s a felon repeat illegal immigrant carrying a gun he is not allowed to have, he FIRES that gun, and it kills someone. Seems to me if you looked in any law book in the English-speaking world, that would be involuntary manslaughter at least. In fact, generally that would be first degree murder, just like the driver of the getaway car who’s guilty of murder even though he didn’t go in the bank–this guy killed someone while he was in the process of committing multiple felonies! SF has become so leftwing political, they can’t even form a rational jury.

Problem is, they actually BELIEVED the story that he found the gun, picked it up, and it immediately went off on it’s own. That scared him, so he kicked it into the ocean, and ran. Yes, the believed that.

Okay, I read some more about the case and I understand why felony murder was off the table. Still not sure about why involuntary manslaughter didn’t fit but I won’t second guess the jury. I do second guess the judge for forbidding any mention of the guy’s repeated violations of the law, and I REALLY second guess the city for refusing to hold the guy for ICE.

It’s SF, which is in Kalifornia and that’s all you need to know. Too bad they just don’t secede but they would lose a shitload of federal funds so it’ll never happen.
