Cop violated rights of criminal aliens who tried to kill him
More insanity from The United States of Amexico. From WND:
Texas Deputy Sheriff Gilmer Hernandez, convicted of violating the civil rights of two illegal aliens, was transferred from a Texas prison to a federal facility in another state and placed in the general population, according to his former boss, who believes the officer's life is in danger.
Don Letsinger, sheriff of Rocksprings, Texas, told WND Hernandez has asked his family to not contact him in the federal prison, saying he fears for his life.
"I am concerned that Gilmer is being singled out for special punishment because of the push to demand the resignation or the dismissal of the prosecutor, U.S. Attorney Johnny Sutton," Letsinger wrote in an e-mail.
The office of Rep. Ted Poe, R-Texas, which has been following the case, confirmed to WND Hernandez has been transferred
As WND reported, Sutton prosecuted Hernandez for injuring two Mexican illegal aliens in a van. Hernandez fired at the van's tires as the illegals escaped from a routine traffic stop, attempting to run over the officer as they drove away.
As WND reported Sutton decided to prosecute Hernandez only after the Mexican consulate wrote letters demanding it. An investigation by the Texas Rangers concluded Hernandez did nothing wrong in discharging his weapon at the fleeing van.
The two illegal aliens injured in the Hernandez incident, Maricela Rodriquez-Garcia and Candio Garcia-Perez, won a $100,000 settlement in a lawsuit against the officer. (That'll buy a lot of burritos, si? - Ed.)
But hey, since my criminal alien apologists want cheap strawberries, then by all means, let's give these "undocumented" cop killer wannabes amnesty, m'kay?
