Did either of you actually read the article? This guy is a distgusting animal, but if you read the article what is happening right now makes sense, let's see what happens in the end. Hopefully he will still get his, but Texas' response is frightening.
Did you read what he did? What he was conviced of doing? That he's been here since he was 2 years old, and I believe was illegal (may havethat part wrong).[/QUOTE]
Indeed. A heinous crime. Dude should be drawn and quartered IMO.
But, unfortunately...this is just ANOTHER example of yee-haw Texas screwing the pooch on death penalty cases...a la faking DNA evidence Central Houston Crime Lab.
And you're right. The treaty should be looked at. It certainly should NOT apply to a foreign national who is here illegally. A foreign national who is here LEGALLY should have every right to contact his home country's consulate and request representation through them. But that right should be waived should a person choose to ignore our laws concerning legal entry into our country....
[QUOTE=bitonti;4058491]the USA signed a treaty. Texas is part of the USA. they are 100% wrong. unless they want to secede.[/QUOTE]
While there is some legal question in re: State vs. Federal Law for a crime committed within a State, and handled via State Law (not Federal), I have already admitted that PK is right on this, and I am wrong.
With that said, may those who signed the Treaty burn in Hell for their foolishness. The idea that how we treat this guy will equate to our our Citizens are treated is as laughable as Fruit Picking being a unique and limtied skillset, developed only via generations ande volution of one subset of illegals.:rolleyes:
