Remember when the left and their allies in the media brutally attacked candidate Trump for saying “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”?
Luis Bracamontes, an illegal Mexican immigrant who’s been deported several times, and is accused of killing two cops, laughed during his trial proceedings on Tuesday and threatened to break out of prison soon to kill more cops.
Bracamontes and his wife, Janelle Monroy, both face trial in the slayings, which occurred during a daylong outburst of violence that began in a Motel 6 parking lot near Arden Fair mall and ended in Auburn.
Monroy faces life in prison if convicted and has not been physically present during the Bracamontes competency hearings.
She has nevertheless played a role in the process with testimony about Bracamontes’ controlling nature and threats he made against her after he learned through court documents of her alleged infidelity.
At one point, he looked at her during a court hearing and drew his finger across his throat, indicating he would kill her, testimony has shown. At another, he sent her a postcard threatening to escape and kill her and her family.
Bracamontes, a Mexican citizen who had been deported several times in the past and was in the country illegally at the time of the slayings, is from Sinaloa and apparently takes great pride in his connection to the Mexican center of drug cartels… –molosyndicate
One of Bracamontes’ lawyers told the jury that his client did murder Sacramento County Sheriff’s Deputy Danny Oliver and Placer Deputy Michael Davis Jr. back in 2014 during his daylong spree of violence, according to the Sacramento Bee.
“Let me be clear and up front,” defense lawyer Jeffrey Barbour said. “Mr. Bracamontes is responsible for the death of Deputy Danny Oliver and Detective Michael Davis.”
“He shot them both,” he added.
Barbour’s admission about Bracamontes occurred shortly after his client repeatedly interrupted courtroom proceedings to disparage his victims.
“I wish I had killed more of the motherf—ers,” he said to the jury. “I will break out soon and I will kill more, kill whoever gets in front of me…There’s no need for a f—ing trial.”
Bracamontes’ outbursts prompted Sacramento Superior Court Judge Steve White to temporarily remove the jury from the courtroom, so that he could deliver a staunch warning to the defendant, threatening to remove him from the courtroom.
“You will not disrupt this trial, you will not speak out,” White told him. “If you do, you will be removed from the courtroom.”
This is not the first time that Bracamontes has threatened to kill more cops. Last June, he said that he will kill more of them if he “get[s] the chance.” He went on to say that he doesn’t regret his actions.
Bracamontes, 37, faces the death penalty and his wife, Janelle Monroy, 41, faces life in prison if they are convicted of the two murders and wounding several other people.
The widows of Davis and Oliver—Jessica Davis and Susan Oliver—were special guests at President Donald Trump’s first address to a joint session of Congress last February. They sat with First Lady Melania Trump. –WFB
