Mexican man executed in Texas for killing a police officer is given a hero's burial in his home town

Thousands of mourners poured out to see the burial of the Mexican man put to death by lethal injection in Texas last month, a move that has sparked diplomatic tensions between the U.S. and the central American state.

Friends and relatives carried the coffin of Mexican Edgar Tamayo to the cemetery in his home town of Miacatlan, Morelos state, amid an outpouring of grief from local residents.

The 46-year-old Mexican was controversially executed in Texas less than two weeks ago for the killing of a Houston police officer in 1994, despite outrage from human rights groups and last minute appeals from his lawyers for clemency on the grounds that Tamayo was mentally disabled.

The case saw the unusual intervention of the U.S. Secretary of State, John Kerry, who had repeatedly urged the Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott to delay Tamayo's punishment, saying it 'could impact the way American citizens are treated in other countries.'

We should have dumped him in the sea, so that there couldn’t have been a funeral.

Texas State Attorney General Greg Abbott, once again spit in Kerry’s/Hussein’s/Holder’s eye. Greg Abbott for Texas governor.

How much sympathy does JFK honestly think the average American would have for one of our own who entered another country illegally and killed one of their cops?

When Britain had hanging, they buried them within the prison walls afterwards to stop crap like this.

Maybe if enough criminals are treated the way they treated their victims, some of these visiting criminals will stay home.

I hope the GOP stools whose idea it was to play the race card against their base are paying attention to this insult. We should have cremated the scumbag, and flushed him down a public urinal, one that could be named after him.

Did they think we passed amnesty already?

La Raza refers to illegal aliens as “undocumented citizens”. If he waas a ‘citizen’, why would the UN be so upset that he was executed?

My point: If there is one inaccuracy, however small, in any article can anyone believe any of the rest of the article?

What really sparks tensions between Mexico & the USA is the fact that Mexicans celebrate the murderer of an American citizen as a hero.
