Kate Steinle Robbed Of Justice

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY DECEMBER 4, 2017

         FIRST IT WAS O.J. SIMPSON WHO WAS ACQUITTED OF A JURDER ALMOST NO ONE BELIEVES HE DIDN’T COMMIT. NOW IT’S JOSE ZARATE, A 54-YEAR-OLD ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT WHO WAS ACQUITTED LAST WEEK BY ANOTHER CALIFORNIA JURY OF MURDERING KATE STEINLE. THE YOUNG WOMAN WAS WALKING WITH HER FATHER ALONG A PIER IN SAN FRANCISCO IN THE SUMMER OF 2015 WHEN SHE WAS SHOT TO DEATH BY A GUN IN THE HANDS OF ZARATE.

         HIS DEFENSE LAWYER CLAIMED ZARATE HAD ONLY FOUND THE GUN WHICH HAD BEEN STOLEN DAYS EARLIER FROM A LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER AND THAT IT ACCIDENTALLY DISCHARGED. A BULLET RICHOCHED OFF THE SIDEWALK, STRIKING STEINLE, WHO DIED IN HER FATHER’S ARMS.

         ZARATE WAS CONVICTED ON A LESSER CHARGE OF GUN POSSESSION AND WILL BE DEPORTED AGAIN. HE WAS ALREADY A CONVICTED FELON WHO HAD BEEN DEPORTED FIVE TIMES, BUT ALWAYS SNEAKED BACK INTO THE COUNTRY, PROTECTED BY SAN FRANCISCO’S IDIOTIC “SANCTUARY CITY” POLICY.

         CALIFORNIA SEEMS MORE INTERESTED IN PROTECTING ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS AND FELONS THAN IT’S OWN PEOPLE. IT IS A DISGRACE, BUT THEN DISGRACE ISN’T WHAT IT USED TO BE. I’M CAL THOMAS IN WASHINGTON.
