Skip to comments.Execution set for today for Mexican man (Illegal alien murderer)
Posted on 08/05/2008 7:08:19 AM PDT by NoKoolAidforMe
NUEVO LAREDO, Mexico Texas officials cleared the way Monday for the execution of Jose Medellin, one of 51 Mexican nationals on U.S. death row, for his role with five other members of a Houston gang in the 1993 murder and rape of two teenage girls.
The Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles on Monday rejected Medellin's request for a reprieve. Medellin, 33, is scheduled to die by lethal injection at 6 p.m. CDT today.
The decision violates the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations, according to the International Court of Justice. President Bush ordered Texas to comply with that decision, but the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the treaty couldn't dictate state court actions.
For more background on this story.......
The ultimate zotting.
Illegal alien murderer ping.
A special report ping plus notification that I'll not bother linking additional threads on Tyson Foods. Enough's enough already...
“The decision violates the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations, according to the International Court of Justice.”
Oh DEAR!!!! NOT the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations!!!!!
I just may pour a couple fingers of Woodford Reserve in honor. Not of his death, but of Texas ignoring the World Court and doing the right thing. As for his death, it doesn't warrant any special acknowledgment.
What isn’t reported here is the fact that he didn’t say a thing about being illegal or ask to talk to the Mexican Consul until he had been on death row for over a year. Seems a little late to me.
If the globalist US feds want they could actually stop his execution. Bush could issue a pardon.
Randy Ertman, father of Jennifer, a 14-year-old girl Medellin raped and murdered, criticized the World Court for attempting to intervene.
"The world court don't mean diddly," he said. "This business belongs in the state of Texas. The people of the state of Texas support the execution. We thank them. The rest of them can go to h-ll."
Adolfo Peña, father of Elizabeth, a 16-year-old girl Medellin also raped and murdered, concurred with Ertman.
"I believe we've been through all the red tape we can go through," he told the Houston Chronicle. "It's time to rock and roll."
“As for his death, it doesn’t warrant any special acknowledgment.”
Well, I for one would CONSIDER crossing a street to piss on his grave; but only if I was going in that direction anyway.
Any competent reporter would have known about this case. Any honest editor would have insisted that it be included in the current report. I conclude that the Denver Post is both incompetent and dishonest in its reporting.
You wouldn't have to wait in line...
“”The world court don’t mean diddly,” he said. “This business belongs in the state of Texas. The people of the state of Texas support the execution. We thank them. The rest of them can go to h-ll.””
Virtual popcorn scheduled for consumption at commencement of countdown to American justice...
Are you saying that the Denver Post is [gasp] incompetent? That they are intentionally slanting this story? You’re talking about the MSM now.
Lethal injection NOT sufficient for the crime. I have a few ideas though...........
We get to off a rapist AND give the Wold Court the finger!
I shall celebrate along with you tonight as well.
Hell, I violate that POS document everyday!
And that is what is lost in such World Court flippery, the fact that two children are dead, raped and murdered at this person’s hands, he should face the Highest Sanction that the State can provide.
That “court” has no concern for the Rights of his Victims, were the State of Texas does, Texas should impose such sanctions on him, there is no doubt of his guilt, and appealing to the Mexican Consulate is no defense of his rape and torture and murder of those two children.
I'm skeptical about them waiting until the burial...
This stinking smear of slime actually has a website.
Good riddance, Jose.
That ol' Woodford's gonna taste especially good tonight :)
“The world court don’t mean diddly,” he said. “This business belongs in the state of Texas. The people of the state of Texas support the execution. We thank them. The rest of them can go to h-ll.”
Well, I believe that boy’s a Texan. God bless that family for having to wait so long to see justice served.
The only thing these girls did wrong was take a short cut home through the woods. This gang of monsters was in the woods doing who knows what, probably taking drugs. The sooner this guy is dead the better. Go TDC!
You have very good taste in whiskey. I think I may do the same to celebrate Texan independence.
...and I shall honor Texas tonight with a bit of Rare Breed and a nice cigar.
Woodford, Elijah Craig and Elmer T. Lee are my go-to bourbons. Everyone’s taste is different, those are just the one’s I’ve settled on. I do have a Montecristo in the humidor but am saving it for my birthday next month. I smoked one on Sunday and have only one left. I’ll have to pass on the cigar tonight. Oh, well...
Hasta luego, jose. In the words of a seldom used malediction here in my parts, "I hope you die o' the screamin', bleedin' sh!ts."
Now that you mention it, I’ve got some Booker Noe at about 121 Proof in my cabinet. I may pass on the Rare Breed and imbibe in a bit of that.
PS - Elijah Craig is NICE stuff.
I have never tried Woodford or Elmer T.
Which is fine, now I have a goal for the rest of the summer!!
I don't enjoy the heavy stuff very well. Woodford and Elijah are about it for me. But then again, Maker's Mark is like water to me...
These convictions were of Texas law, in the Texas Court system, they don't implicate any powers of the federal government. (which is why the Supreme Court held that US treaty obligations were of no avail to this miscreant).
And they don’t let former governors issue pardons.
This barbarian must die. I don't care what country he came from.
Which is fine, now I have a goal for the rest of the summer!!
Go for it! Zum Wohl!.
Fling the floodgates to hell wide open, beginning today at 6:00!
Apparently, according to a recent article, Bush injected himself into this matter by asking Texas to review the case.
But, of course, he remains silent on the matter of Border Patrol Agents Ramos and Compean. And on the matter of the remaining two Haditha Marines still waiting for charges to be dismissed.
He chose to lie about his status.
Now that he has lost all avenues he admits he was illegal and now wants to speak to his consulate. OR rather his lawyers figured this out at the 11.75th hour.
This was also an attempt to deal a superiority claim to the same international tribunal that has TRIED to intervent before with “stays” to allow review.
I watched the interview Glen Beck had with the Texas governor last evening. The governor said he would wait until the pardon board made a decision before he decides about a reprieve, but his tone sounded like he had already decided to let the execution proceed today. After learning how the Mexican murderers tormented the 14 year old American girls who they raped, tortured, and murdered I would have no qualms whatsoever about hanging each of them from the highest tree in Texas if I were governor. God didn't give authority to individuals like me to execute murderers. But He did give that authority to government, and in fact He commanded government to do it.
If the Euroweenies don't like the way we handle vicious murderers Bush should tell them to them to tend to their own justice system and we'll tend to ours. But for some reason I can't understand he is so enthralled with anything and everything Mexican that he wants this vicious torturer-rapist-murderer spared his rightful punishment and sent home to Mexico where he would probably be welcomed with a victory parade. I voted for Bush twice and would again given the nature of the Democrat opposition he would surely face, but if there was any acceptable alternative in the primary I would vote for him or her instead of Bush.
> Wait till Jimmah gets buried.
I think Jimmah should be embalmed like Lenin, Mao and Ho Chi Minh.
Since January, more than 1,300 people have been killed in execution-style hits or gunned down in fire fights, which often rage for hours in broad daylight and turn residential neighbourhoods into war zones. If the trend continues, 2008 will top last year's toll of 2,500 deaths in drug-related killings.You don't hear so much about Americans at the Border. Too bad.
More Americans killed by illegal aliens than Iraq war, study says Think about it. A man or woman killed in Iraq or Iran in the line of duty is a hero. But what is an American killed at home by an illegal alien because the government has failed in its sworn duty to guard the borders. This is a pact between the sovereign and the person has paid taxes and loyalty. The answer is to that question is pretty awful. And it bodes ill for the republic.
But is it true?
Yes, according Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa.When you start digging into the numbers the only ones that can be sourced with the feds are the number of American murdered in 2005: 16692
I have seen federal numbers for illegals held in jail ranging from 19.3% to 27% of the federal prison population.
Here's a sampling of USA cities wanted for murder. What you'll see is that in big USA cities like LA or NYC most of the murderers are Hispanic. Unknown are the % of illegals. In smaller cities the FBI will post the nationalities of the murderers. About 25% of the most wanted are illegals wanted for murder. This number agrees with the percentage of illegals incarcerated in federal prisons. +-25%
Pictures of top 10 most wanted in LA. Up until recent stories about crime in LA posted by the LA Times--the pictures included the nationality of the murderers. They were all foreign nationals and mostly Mexican.

Chicago wanted for Murder
Philadelphia wanted for murder
San Francisco wanted for Murder
New Orleans wanted for Murder
Pictures of suspects wanted for murder in Washington DC
FBI USA 10 most wanted. (two of 10 are Mexican nationals) Around 40% of the FBI's wanted for murder are Mexican Nationals
There are currently no exact numbers on the number of Americans killed by illegals. Part of the reason is that the government deliberately obscures the number. I talked on the phone with the head of statistics for the US Bureau of Prisons. He said his office wasn't allowed to publish the number of illegal alien murderers. Rather they were forced to put legal and non legal residents in the same category. He said further that most of illegals in the federal prisons were in for drug related charges. Most of the illegals in jail for murder were in the state prisons. I talked to ICE. They put out detailed numbers on illegal child molestors. However, they put out nothing on illegal murderers.
Part of the reason for the silence on the matter is that there is evidence to suggest that most Americans--but by no means all -- being killed by illegals are black--as is the suggestion in this LA Times Article. Also this article from the LA Times. And here. This makes intuitive sense. We see stories regularly of drug gang killings in Mexico but we don't see those same stories in the USA. The reason we don't see those stories is not because its not happening. Rather we don't see the stories about illegals killing blacks because that kind of story is terribly politically incorrect. The populations being displaced in downtown sanctuary cities especially are American blacks. That means that their criminal elements would be pushed aside by Mexican gangs as well. That's also the story that the wanted for murder posters in all the major cities seems to suggest.
Why isn't there an outcry in the black community? Beats me.
Nevertheless, the pattern of non reporting is starting to break. Discovery Channel has a series called Gangland that mentions ethnic cleasing of blacks by Mexican gangs. One woman in San Francisco who had her family killed by an illegal is even demanding the city to drop its sanctuary city status.

All that said the true number of criminal aliens is far higher than is revealed by criminal aliens in prisons. Most are simply waived through the courts.DHS Secretary Chertoff, has been quoted as warning that two million people in this country illegally have committed serious crimes. If you check the links you'll notice that its McCain who cites Chertoff. See also here and here Here is more info from Judicial Watch.
However the number of illegals on death row is far lower. Sadly, so many small towns and villages across America have sent their warriors off to war half way across the world only to see communities fill up with illegal aliens.
I hear ya. And IMO you can replace “Bush” with “McCain” and I’d feel the same way. In fact, I’m not voting for President as it stands now. And with every drop in the polls that Barry incurs I feel more confident in that decision.
The lines will be a lot longer in Arkansas when slick passes on. Years ago I made my sons promise that if I outlived clinton and was too infirm to transport myself that they would make sure I got there to piss on his grave.
From his appearance, he may already have been.
Almost exactly what I told a co-worker yesterday, except I did not mention the cigar. I do have a fresh box of assorted cigars I ordered off of Rush’s site, so I believe I’ll light one up myself.
