Some mind blowing quotes:


Jose Inez Garcia-Zarate, who was in the U.S. illegally had been deported to his native Mexico five times, was acquitted in November 2017 of first and second-degree murder, involuntary manslaughter, and assault with a semi-automatic weapon. He was convicted of one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm.

On Friday, the 1st District Court of Appeal in San Francisco overturned that conviction because the judge failed to give the jury the option of acquitting Garcia-Zarate on the theory he only possessed the weapon for a moment.
 
Then this...

Prosecutors argued that the jury instruction lapse was harmless because Garcia-Zarate admitted firing the gun and experts said he couldn't do so without pulling the trigger. The court disagreed, saying the jury's verdict showed they rejected the prosecution theory that the shooting was intentional or even negligent and they had asked the judge to define possession and whether there was a time requirement for possession.

And then this...


Steinle, 32, died on July 1, 2015, after she was struck by a bullet while walking with her father and a family friend. Garcia-Zarate claimed he unwittingly picked up the gun, which was wrapped in a T-shirt, and it fired accidentally.

The gun belonged to a federal Bureau of Land Management ranger and was stolen from his parked car a week earlier.

These people are doing everything possible to protect low IQ folks from 3rd world countries. They need these types to gain/control power.

I thought CA was tough on gun crime...

Of course someone else could have stolen the gun, but they let this guy walk on the definition of possession?  Never mind that he walked on all the actual serious charges.

Yup

The guy even admitted firing the gun!  How does he not only skate on possession, but at a *MINIMUM* involuntary manslaughter seems like a slam dunk.  

What did you say Lrrps, gone in 5--10 years?  We may already be there now.

Yup. The Singapore clock has officially started ticking today at 0800. When my gf's sister and cousin finish their graduate studies, we're all out of here. 18 months and counting.

California would prosecute you for murder and then Bill Barr would come in behind them and charge you for a federal hate crime.  Two life sentences.
Drive like hell!!  You'll get there!
