...and another one's gone. Texas defies Obama and executes Rapist and Murderer
Even though the Obama administration brought undue pressure against Texas, Governor Perry denied a stay of execution for convicted Rapist and Killer
Humberto Leal. Humberto, an illegal alien, raped then killed a teenager in 1996 and was convicted and sentenced to death.
Many pro-amnesty groups protested Texas decision and have filed multiple appeals in Humberto defense. They sought to keep this case
tied up for as long as possible to make it to expensive to keep fighting.
The Obama Administration entered the fray and attempted to sway Governor Perry and if not him the Texas courts to keep the scheduled execution from taking place.
The administration, as it's justification for interfering in a State legal matter, cited the potential for creating an International incident.
Where was the Administrations "concern" over International incidents when the Mexican Army murdered an American and attempted to cover up the act by placing a gun on his person
and then lying about the circumstances?
The Associated Press reported on: Dec 26, 2010
On the night of August 22, 2010 Joseph Proctor a 32 year old American had went out to a local store in the neighborhood where they lived in the quiet Mexican beach town where the couple had just moved.
He had told his girlfriend he would only be gone for a few minutes.
The next morning, the 32-year-old New York native was dead inside his crashed van on a road outside Acapulco. He had multiple bullet wounds. An AR-15 rifle lay in his hands.
Liliana Gil Vargas, was told to come to the local police HQ, where she was told Joseph had died in a gunbattle with an army patrol.
They claimed Joseph had attacked the troops. They showed her the gun.
It took months for his family to fight through the Mexican military styled justice system and the uncaring American Government to finally get justice for their family
Three soldiers where charged with killing Joseph. Two have been charged with planting the AR-15 on Joseph and claiming that he fired first, according to a Mexican Defense Department document sent to her through the U.S. Embassy in Mexico City.
According to the Associated Press it is at least the third case this year in which soldiers, locked in a brutal battle with drug cartels, have been accused of killing innocent civilians and faking evidence in cover-ups.
Where is the outrage from the Administration over this? Where was their concern over an International incident here?
Where is the outrage over an out of control Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) allowing loads of guns to go into Mexico to be used by the drug cartels. Weapons that were then used to kill a Border Patrol Agent. Where is the news coverage of ether event?
Why is this Administration allowing our borders to be violated? Our laws circumvented?
Texas did the right thing. They executed a piece of human garbage and told this Administration to stay out of Texas affairs.
Thank God for Texas.
