Illegal immigrant found guilty in murder of 2 deputies

Illegal immigrant found guilty in murder of 2 deputies

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — A man in the United States illegally was convicted Friday of killing two Northern California deputies in a case that helped fuel the national immigration debate.

Luis Bracamontes was found guilty of murder in the shootings of Sacramento County sheriff’s Deputy Danny Oliver and Placer County sheriff’s Detective Michael Davis Jr. in 2014. He also was convicted of attempted murder, carjacking, weapons violations and other crimes.

“Yay,” he said softly after first verdict read, looking around at the victims’ families and jurors with a slight smile.

I’m going to kill more cops soon,” Bracamontes said later as he was led away from the courtroom that had heavy security.

Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty for Bracamontes, who has repeatedly blurted out in court that he killed the deputies and wished he had killed more. The penalty phase of his trial starts March 5.

Defense attorneys, who declined to comment after the verdict, argued that Bracamontes was mentally ill and high on methamphetamine during the shootings and should be spared. A judge found Bracamontes competent to stand trial and he refused to plead not guilty by reason of insanity.

Family members of the victims didn’t speak to reporters after the hearing.

Bracamontes is a Mexican citizen who repeatedly entered the United States illegally.

President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign aired a 30-second ad last month featuring Bracamontes and accusing Democrats of being “complicit” in the slayings of law enforcement officers by people in the U.S. illegally.

It was released on the anniversary of Trump’s inauguration amid a government shutdown sparked by Democrats’ refusal to support a spending plan unless Republicans agreed to protect hundreds of thousands of young immigrants from deportation.

Public defenders Jeffrey Barbour and Norm Dawson argued unsuccessfully that anti-immigrant sentiment prompted by Trump made it unlikely that Bracamontes could get a fair trial.

Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones called Bracamontes a “despicable human being” regardless of his immigration status.

Jones, who ran unsuccessfully for Congress, waged a public campaign against the immigration policies of former Democratic President Barack Obama after the deputies were killed.

“The fact that he’s an illegal alien or an undocumented immigrant, been removed four times, that doesn’t make him evil. He is evil because he’s a despicable human being that just happens to be here illegally,” Jones said after the verdict.

A separate jury is considering whether Bracamontes’ wife, Janelle Monroy, an American citizen, should be convicted of murder. She has contended that she was a victim of her abusive and paranoid husband who frequently used meth, marijuana and alcohol during a meandering journey across several western states, from their home in Utah to Sacramento.

Investigators said he shot Oliver outside a Sacramento motel on Oct. 24, 2014, triggering a manhunt and chase that lasted hours and spanned 30 miles (48 kilometers). It ended after authorities say he shot Davis and surrendered following a lengthy standoff.

Bracamontes has shouted in court that he is guilty and asked to be put to death. He has threatened to kill his defense attorneys and more deputies, and once had to be restrained after the judge ruled that he can’t fire his lawyers.

WikiLeaks Confirms It! Trump Jr. Was Right! Seth Rich WAS The DNC Leaker!

The murder of the DNC staffer Seth Rich raised a lot of controversies that last even today.

What’s interesting, Donald Trump Jr. created another theory that Rich was the source of the leaked DNC emails.

This Monday, Trump Jr. wrote a Tweet a face to face conversation with him and WikiLeaks officials from October last year, only three months after Rich was murdered outside his home in Washington D.C. as WikiLeaks stated: Strongly suggest your dad tweets this link if he mentions us. 

From the Political Insider:

The website only consists of one page, but the messages exchanged between Trump Jr. and the WikiLeaks account indicate that there were more pages – and possibly documents – at one point in time. It’s unclear when the website was edited, who did it, or why. Currently, the only text on the site begins: You finally found me! I’m the source of the John Podesta/DNC Emails hacks. I’ve been waiting for so long for you to join me.

This continues written in the voice of Rich and it says:

As you can see I’m no Russian agent. I was just a proud DNC staffer who believed in the system until I found out Hillary Clinton and the DNC rigged the primaries against my candidate Bernie Sanders. That is when I decided to take action and release these emails to WikiLeaks.

Former Clinton campaign manager John Podesta was also accused of being a pedophile.

This is also confirmed by the fact that WikiLeaks $20,000 reward for information on his murder is proof that Rich was the source of WikiLeaks.

Thanks again WikiLeaks for upping my reward to solve my murder. I wonder why you’d do that for me? Oh, you are trying to tell the world I was your source. Whoops, cat’s outta the bag now.

His murder is still unsolved by the officials.

Convicted Killer Laughs At Victim’s Family In Court, Judge Gives Him ‘Something’ To Really Laugh About

Most citizens cannot imagine the horror of losing a loved one. The pain that grips a family will last the rest of their lives.

What’s even worse is to see their loved one’s killer, completely unremorseful over his actions.

Yet that’s just what happened at a recent trial. The judge, however, set him straight.

From Conservative Tribune:

According to WXYZ News in Detroit, Danta Wright had confessed to killing another young man in Ann Arbor. While relatives of the victim read a heartfelt statement to the court, Wright acted amused by the upset family.

“I’ve lost my only child, my son, my baby, my friend. More than that, I lost laughter and love. I no longer have the hope of having grandchildren,” a family member read aloud from a statement prepared by the victim’s mother.

Wright apparently wasn’t moved by the emotional words, but the judge was outraged by his cavalier attitude.

“Watching you sit there, smile, laugh, shake your head like this was no big deal— I’m very tempted to just say, ‘I’m not going to accept this sentencing agreement and we’ll go to trial’ and if you’re convicted of felony murder, you’ll go to prison for the rest of your life,” Judge David Swartz scolded…

Despite the judge’s temptation to move the case to a full jury trial, Klee’s family stated that they didn’t want to go through a drawn-out legal process. For the sake of closure, they asked the court to keep a plea bargain in place.

Even without a full trial, that plea agreement means that Danta Wright will spend 23 to 50 years in prison.

It’s hard to imagine anyone laughing at the pain of a family. Yet this is the same person who had no problem killing their son.

Sometimes deaths are terrible accidents or crimes of passion. Other times, they are done by people who lack the basic morals needed to live in a civilized society.

This judge was absolutely right in condemning Wright for his shocking attitude in court. He took the life of another man. Yet he showed no sadness or remorse, even after being convicted.

By taking the plea deal, he gets a lesser sentence. But is that fair? That family will never see their son again. A brother and friend is gone forever, but his killer can get off slightly easier, despite his attitude.

My guess is jail will not go well for this one.
