Angry about Casey Anthony? Be angry about Humberto Leal Garcia instead

Yeah, I think Casey Anthony got away with murder, and she was found “Not Guilty” [not “innocent”, but “Not Guilty“] by a jury. Some are arguing (one of whom was Alan Dershowitz of OJ Simpson fame today on talk radio) that it’s better that one guilty person goes free than an innocent go to prison; I’ll agree with that, but only because I believe there is Justice beyond this Earth and people like Casey Anthony will face Final Judgment in the end. We won’t see it or be satisfied here on Earth today, but no one lives forever, not even the guilty who go free.

Nobody can be blamed for being angry about the probably guilty going free, but there is something worse (believe it or not) going on that isn’t going to likely be on the evening news.

A leftist ideologue chief executive here in the United States is actively campaigning to stop the execution of a Mexican national who was convicted of the brutal rape and murder of a 16 year old girl in San Antonio, Texas back in 1994. When I say “brutal”, I’d like to spare you the details, but I can’t do that. Skip ahead past the blockquotes if you don’t want to know;

In the early hours of May 21, 1994, 16-year-old Adria Sauceda and dozens of others attended a raucous Southside house party on Vincent Street, where witnesses reported seeing a dazed Sauceda — pumped full of alcohol, cocaine, and marijuana — pulled to the backyard. There she was stripped and circled by eight or nine men, each “taking turns” on the disoriented teenager. Friends who came to her aid were told to shut up, drink, and quit spoiling the party.

Humberto Leal later abducted this already brutally savaged teenager and raped her some more before finally ending your misery by crushing in her skull with a 35 lb chunk of asphalt. When police found her dead and ravaged body on the side of the dirt road where Leal left her, there was still a large stick that had a screw protruding from it that Leal left jammed up her lifeless body after he raped her with it.

Late in June of this year, a federal judge refused to stop the execution of Garcia, which is scheduled to take place July 7 – Thursday of this week. Death not by bashing his skull in, or penetrating his orifices with foreign objects, but death by just going to sleep and not waking up; lethal injection. Read more here if you want particulars.

The US “chief executive” in this case, siding with the despicable people trying to help this brutal murderer, is of course the Chief Law Enforcement Officer of the United States of America; the one person in the United States you would hope would be representing US legal interests, rather than the interests of foreign-born nationals in the United States illegally. It is, of course, Barack Hussein Obama.

Getting tired of his working against the United States rather than for the United States yet?

Here’s what Obama is doing to attempt to get this murderer released (Via the UK Guardian);

President Barack Obama is attempting to block the execution in Texas on Thursday of a Mexican man because it would breach an international convention and do “irreparable harm” to US interests.

The White House has asked the US Supreme Court to put the execution of Humberto Leal Garcia on hold while Congress passes a law that would prevent the convicted rapist and murderer from being put to death along with dozens of other foreign nationals who were denied proper access to diplomatic representation before trials for capital crimes.

The administration moved after the governor of Texas, Rick Perry,brushed aside appeals from diplomats, top judges, senior military officers, the United Nations and former president George W Bush to stay Leal’s execution because it could jeopardise American citizens arrested abroad as well as US diplomatic interests.

The argument from the left, such as the Texas ACLU, is that by executing Garcia, US citizens will be placed in grave danger abroad (as if US citizens in Mexico aren’t in danger as it is) by denying the “Mexican citizen” his right “…under the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations, to seek assistance and legal counsel from the Mexican consulate.”

On the other hand, being here since age 2, Garcia should just be granted US citizenship, according to these same leftists. But I’m going off on a tangent…

Instead of the ACLU and Obama hand-wringing over a convicted murderer, maybe they could pay a little attention to the victims?

Every morning as Rene Sauceda gets ready for the day, he pulls a South San Antonio High School newspaper dated May 25, 1995, out of his closet.

It was published just after the first anniversary of his daughter Adria’s death and about a month before the capital murder trial of Humberto Leal Jr., the man suspected of killing her, was set to begin.

The South San newspaper is folded to reveal a specific ad on a page’s bottom corner. “In memory of Adria Sauceda,” it begins. Her dates of birth and death — Jan. 27, 1978, and May 21, 1994 — are in small type near the end.

“I look at that every day,” Sauceda, 64, said as his fingers smoothed the pages. “Her friends paid to have that put in the paper. She had so many friends.”

In the 17 years since Adria was found bludgeoned to death with a rock and left naked on a dirt road after being sexually assaulted with a stick, her family has kept silent, even as efforts to stay Leal’s execution, set for Thursday, have grown louder amid a tug-of-war over the right of foreign suspects to be offered access to their consulates.

Updates here-

The only advocates for the victims seem to be The Texas parole board, the Texas Attorney General, and Governor Rick Perry (so far);

“At this point, it is clear that Leal is attempting to avoid execution by overwhelming the state and the courts with as many meritless lawsuits and motions as humanly possible,” Stephen Hoffman, an assistant Texas attorney general, told the court Tuesday in a brief opposing appeals to stop Leal’s execution.

Working against the State of Texas and the legal citizens of the United States (once again), Barack Obama and his henchman Eric Holder. Is that even a surprise anymore? The fact that the two people most expected to uphold law and order would consistently end up the two most often trying to undermine the rule of law to benefit their own leftist ideology?

Again, elections have consequences, and votes cast in favor of candidates who make us “feel good”, or who don’t have a big ol’ goiter on their cheeks (because of cancer), or don’t get trashed on Saturday Night Live and the Nightly News; these votes harm us all in the end.

Let’s not make that mistake again.

  1. I hope Perry hangs tough on this one. The needle’s too good for this [redacted], bad enough we’ve been feeding him for the last 17 years for Pete’s sake. As if sparing him would help any American citizen arrested overseas, how lame can you get? And how would ‘diplomatic representation’ have changed his guilt? It figures Jug Ears would intervene, must not have any parties scheduled this week.

  2. Outstanding, Erick. Thank you for getting this story out there and the truth. I remember learning about this horrific murder when they began to bring up the so-called “he didn’t have access to his consulate” defense. If ever someone deserves execution, Garcia does. It is appalling that the victim of such crimes rarely get justice in their names, swift or otherwise. Wonder if the Left would be so soft if it these murders happened to their own? Not just once, but frequently as it does to the rest of society. No, they’re protected, living in their glass and ivory towers.

    Mexico could do with the death penalty; the people down there seem to have moved to anarchy and kill without mercy.

  3. Ok, let me get this straight, once again the “left” wants both sided of the coin. They want everyone who has been in the country illegally for 17 years to be US citizen BUT if you are guilt of a crime, they want you to be a foreign national. This should be the Poster Child for why ALL should be sent back. Not just over the boarder but to the tip of South America.
    BYW, anchor babies didn’t start until the 80’s. It is in the US Constitution that foreign national’s children born in this country ARE NOT US citizens so neither is children born to illegals in this country.

    • Re: Anchor babies: Are you talking about the “subject to the jurisdiction thereof” clause of the 14th amendment? Or are you referring to something else that is in the Constitution? The Supremes have held that anyone that is not a diplomat is “subject to the jurisdiction thereof” so pretty much anyone born here is a citizen.

  4. The statist/globalist view of ‘international law’ and ‘treaties’ are tools they use to control by fiat – see also UN pushing for gun control. What I am wondering is, if all these ‘anchor babies’ are US citizens, then we’ve got a lot of ‘US citizens” down there in Mexico, don’t we? Those who have gone back or whose parents took them back. Must be millions and millions of ‘US citizens” living down there This administration which is concerned about how US citizens will be treated abroad if a scumbag rapist/murderer is executed I can’t believe supposed US leaders are saying crap like this with a straight face), are they looking out for the welfare of all those US citizens down there in Mexico?

  5. Right now – legally at least – this is or should be a non-issue. -0- has escalated it for his own Leninist purposes. In 2008 Medellin v Texas SCOTUS already decided that in this capital case situation, the states are not required to do anything about implementing the Vienna Convention or like treaties, until the Legislative Branch (the treaty approver under the Constitution), also passes legislation assisting the states in its implementation.. Oh, and, SCOTUS also told the Executive Branch to keep its nose out of this kind of situation (Bush then, Obama now) until Congress sees fit to act.. Which it hasn’t and won’t. (Harry Reid Grand High Reviewer of all state court capital convictions in the US?!) Meanwhile, State of Texas is not going to wait idly by and fail to carry out sentence on the duly convicted by jury of twelve citizens good and true as prescribed on July 7. Obama could have just said “since the Medellin case, Congress is the appropriate body to rectify this situation” and side stepped this, but now he has jumped into this headfirst with Holder and all his UN buddies. The real question here is *why* has he- just like NY Mosque @ Ground Zero – picked a fight he will surely lose on all fronts? A real President would have used this whole situation as a teaching moment for the UN and thug states all over the world: we have a federal republic here, plus a Tenth Amendment – power is divided and often collides within a system of written laws – “the President can’t just do whatever he wants.” A wholly foreign concept to France, Russia, DemRep Congo, etc.,etc., where the big dog *does* do what he wants and gets to keep all the $$$.Which is, what I suspect has happened here, -0-‘s UN, academia and thug buddies have shamed him: “How can you let dat punk (Perry) punk you? You da man, send in the UN and send in the federal marshals!”
    And that sounds right to him and whatever chemicals from long ago are affecting his thought process. Oh the other given reason he’s doing this is he hates Texas and never loses a chance to take a shot at the Lone Star State. Or Israel for that matter. But by now, that is a given.By the way, from her picture that pretty girl Adria was/is an angel who did nothing to deserve what happened to her, I would have been proud to have had her as my own daughter and could not stand long to gaze at her picture. Mr and Mrs Sauceda may the process of law which will finally uninterruptedly conclude tomorrow, give you some small peace though it cannot replace the loss. Millions in Texas and elsewhere grieve with you and honor your daughter- and in this case, know what is the right thing to do.

  6. No treaties protecting foreign visitors can possibly be construed to apply to illegal immigrants. If they are here in violation of our laws, what in the world makes them think they have the right to protection under our treaties?

    To come into our country illegally, break our laws, murder and/or rape our citizens and then demand that we give them access to a foreign consulate, just like they were John Q. Tourist who accidentally stumbled into a broken law, is the ultimate in chutzpah.
