[QUOTE=cr726;2636915]Try to charge a foreign diplomat with a crime on U.S. soil.[/QUOTE]
The diplomat is covered by immunity(sp). My pet peave here is if Mexico even tried stopping the flow of illegals into this country I would change my mind. But they could careless so screw them! Do you know what Mexico does to illegal aliens entering the country? Lets say it is not very diplomatic!
I am aware. It still does not change the point I am making here.

I have a practical solution to this international conflict.
I think Mr. Medellin should be able to talk to a representative of his government before he is executed. No need for Texas to act uncivilized.
So, here's what we do: On a hot, sunny day in August, take him down to El Paso, and someplace just north of the border, bury him up to his neck in the sand, at about 10am in the morning. Close to an ant hill (red ants) would be ok.
A representative from Mexico is then welcome to talk to Mr. Medellin for as long as Mr. Medellin wants to talk. As an option, Mr. Medellin can ask to be put out of his misery at any time, by lethal injection of a .40 caliber projectile to the back of his head.
[QUOTE=cr726;2634955]No it is not his or his lawyer's responsibility to notify the consulate. When I arrest a foreign national I have to notify the consulate office of that country. It is a quick phone call.
Some countries have a memo of understanding pertaining to this and therefore no call is necessary.
His illegal status makes this a horror of a crime, if that is possible.[/QUOTE]
Don't feed the trolls...
Look at them congregate and salivate... You can almost hear the crosses burning... They created and flocked to this thread for the express purpose of luring a liberal... Replete with grouping all liberals together, and what they somehow must believe... Yawn... Reactionary much?
But, Yay Texas! Killed another one!

(for the record, i'm pro death penalty... just not record-setting death penalty)
