Posted on 07/13/2007 8:18:39 PM PDT by Congressman Billybob
The body of Zina Linnik was found today (Saturday) in Tacoma, Washington, based on information from a convicted sex offender who has been arrested in connection with her abduction, sexual torture, and death. Final charges have not been filed, and there has not been any trial. But available information now indicates that the man responsible is Terapon Adhahn, 42, an illegal alien who had been convicted in 1990 of incest against an underage relative.
He should have been deported then as a result of that conviction. He wasnt. As a representative of the Immigration Service said in one article about this subject, We lost track of him. Indeed. The police and courts in Tacoma were not much better in keeping track of this criminal alien.
Thus it was that on the 4th of July, Adhahn was in his grey van on the street where Zina was going home to get her siblings to come out to watch fireworks. He apparently snatched her off the street. Her father was close enough to hear her scream, see the van, get part of the license plate, and find his daughters shoe.
Within 24 hours, the police had found the van, found Adhahn, and developed information to find Zinas body, and arrest Adhahn on the initial charge of immigration violations. Other charges will follow.
Why did this happen? Who is responsible?
It happened because thats what pedophiles do. One of the most repetitious crimes of all is preying on children. Such criminals will almost always repeat their crimes until they are jailed or executed. But Adhahn was not jailed or executed. He was also not deported.
I have two daughters and four granddaughters. If any human slime did something like this to any of them, I would be wild with grief, and furious with anger at all responsible for this fate.
The main responsibility is the criminal himself. But in situations like this one, many other people share part of the blame.
Consider Amber Alerts, Megans Law, and Jessicas Law. All these began with the horrible death of one young girl in one state. All spread to most states in the union because they have the capacity to save the lives of other young girls from the horrors of pedophiles. Do we need more laws to protect other young girls from the fate of Zina? No we dont.
We already HAVE Zinas Laws. They are the immigration laws of the United States. They require that a pedophile like Adhahn MUST be deported after their first conviction. It is bureaucrats drawing their checks and sitting on their duffs, who have not enforced these laws. It is Members of Congress drawing their (recently increased) checks and sitting on their duffs, who have not both insisted on and paid for enforcement of these laws. It is a President who is drawing his checks and sitting on his duff, who is allowing Border Patrol agents to rot in jail rather than backing them up in doing their jobs.
Notice I have in no way condemned the dedicated but overmatched Border Patrol agents themselves.
How many Americans are exposed to attacks and death due to the failure to enforce Zinas Laws? A study by the Violent Crimes in Atlanta, released in May, 2006, concluded that there are about 240,00 illegal immigrants in the United States as of then, who are sex offenders. These criminals had about four victims each. The study deals with the propensities of these criminals to advance to murder as well as sexual abuse, and the comparative tendencies of this group to commit crimes, compared to others.
We cannot jail the politicians who allowed Zina to be tortured and killed at the age of 12. But can we at least turn our rage on them so they either act to prevent future acts like this, or flee their offices in fear of our rage? Dont we owe that to Zina, and all the little girls like her?

From what I’ve heard, he was a naturalized citizen, not an illegal alien and he served in the military.
I got question we keep pedophille in jail Billybob and stupid judges allow them back on the street how about getting rid of those judges I think judges fault or DA fault maybe there is loophole in Jessica Law that get Judge put them back on the street
Make me furious
I think the federal government should reactivate Alcatraz and any pedophile should be immediately transferred there for the rest of his life with no chance of ever leaving there and that information should be shouted from the housetops. That’s the only way to keep the children safe from them. Wanna bet the number of incidents would drop to zero.
We lost track of him.
How many more are out there like him?
Dare I ask?
I heard Geraldo say that on John Gibsons show. But the feds have been holding this guy since Monday on "immigration violations." Now, how can the feds hold a naturalized citizen on immigration violations?
What seems clear is that he was brought to this country by a Thai parent, who perhaps married an American, when he was 13. I havent seen anything in print that says he was naturalized--have you?
About his status as a “naturalized citizen” you might read Michelle Malkin’s website (www.michellemalkin.com). She is updating the story with additional information. He was a deportable alien in the early 1990s based on his rape of an underage family member. He also appears to be registered to vote in Washington state, though the ICE statement seems to confirm his status as a deportable criminal alien that “got lost.”
I know he's a big lib but it was not only ridiculous but very unprofessional.
The guy’s parole officer suggested to him that he should just list himself as “homeless” that way no agency could track him ... he’d been kicked out of several apartments in his area when the locals found out who he was ...
My understanding is that any naturalized citizen who commits that sort of crime is deportable, especially after a second offense, which I’ve heard he had.
My post above gives Michelle Malkin’s continuing reporting on this matter. With all (or any) due deference to Geraldo Rivera, his stance on CIR puts a definite spin on anything he says on the issue. The facts seem otherwise. If you are a deportable alien in the 1990s you remain one, whether the feds “lose track” of you or not. I will believe Michelle’s reporting over Geraldo’s ever time.
No, I haven’t seen anything in print yet
Authorities comparing Zina Linniks death to others

Is Terapon Adhahn a serial child killer?
Thats a question investigators across the region were considering Friday after the Parkland man told Tacoma police where to find the body of 12-year-old Zina Linnik. Its something were looking into, FBI agent David Gomez said during a news conference at Tacoma police headquarters. Police Chief Don Ramsdell and Gomez said investigators would look at Adhahn as a possible suspect in other unsolved cases involving attacks on children, both in the Tacoma area and nationwide. Were looking at cold cases from the past, Ramsdell said. The chief mentioned the case of Adreanna Jackson specifically. The 10-year-old Tillicum girl disappeared in December 2005 on her way to school. Her remains were found months later in an overgrown lot not far from her home...
Just a month or so ago a recently released (11 hours or so) illegal alien raped a 15 year old girl. The investigation into that crime revealed a possible rape by the same perp of a 13 year old some time earlier by the same convicted illegal alien. ICE was supposedly notified of his release by state officials. I believe this happened in Tennessee. And the list goes on from there. And the maddening aspect of this are “immigrant rights” activists who dismiss this — and are suing because some illegals were profiled and arrested when the police investigated the original rape crime and uncovered other illegal aliens in doing so.
Wouldn’t this guy have been given AMNESTY and citizenship by Teddy K and the bunch of hot-air blowers in the Senate? I bet he’s disappointed.
It can be extremely frustrating dealing with bureaucrats at the department of corrections, many of them seem to care more about finding space and moving people through than they do about protecting the rest of us from the convicted criminals. There should be an investigation to find out who screwed up and then deal with those who did. One of the greatest problems is that there seems to be no accountability and therefore the problems continue.
I suspect he might be assuming the man is legal because he is registered to vote, rather than entertaining the possibility that his voter registration could be fraudulent.
Meanwhile, one newspaper is already doing its bit to humanize this monster. Get this from a Seattle rag:
According to the report, Adhahn was born in Bangkok, Thailand, and spent his early years with his mother and an alcoholic, abusive father. When his parents divorced, Adhahn and his siblings moved in with grandparents in a rural area, where they sometimes went without food.
During the evaluation, Adhahn said he had been repeatedly raped by an older brother, according to the report.
Please excuse me. I need some Kleenex.
“...entertaining the possibility that his voter registration could be fraudulent.”
No, really? Here in Washington state? Perish the thought.
That might be the same “Seattle rag” that I emailed about their headline. It had the word “deportment” in place of “deportation” in part of its headline. The headline ran along the lines of “Suspect in Zina murder: illegal alien who escaped deportment.” I emailed their editor. I think it was the Seattle Times, but I can’t track down the email at this moment. Geraldo is not alone.
Forget the 'investigations'! Start putting the bad-guys in the ground, and this crap'll stop! Waiting for gummint action is pointless, and asking for it is a fools' game.
And if there ain't a copper around, practice some 2nd Ammendment do-it-yerself. In case y'all hadn't noticed by now, we're on our own out here in the wilds of America. ............... FRegards
Except that deporting them does no good, since they will turn around and sneak back in. Mexican government doesn't care squat.
And I have a citizen Level 2 sex offender living in my neighborhood full of little kids. Used to see the kids all over the place, but now it's more or less a ghost town, because parents are afraid to let their kids wander. The Black Robes feel far too sorry for these creeps, legal or illegal.
Sherriff Joe Arpaio had an interesting take on illegal immigration, interviewed on local talk radio.
He doesn't believe in fences, but "Just enforce the law" (heard of that anywhere before?). He would put tent cities all along the border, catch and pen them up for a few months, in that miserable 120 degree heat, before deporting. Once they realize they will have the hurt put on them, they will stop coming. Food for thought.
We lost track of him.....and a 12 year old girl went thru hell and died....
“We cannot jail the politicians who allowed Zina to be tortured and killed at the age of 12.”
“I am furious. Are you? What are we going to do about it?”
...and how can citizens self-deputize and commence criminal proceedings if attorneys general are criminally negligent, or complicit?
I agree...we need to do something...we have to do something...
...but other than going 'gonzo' (all due respect gonzo)...we work to change laws....or make them enforce!!! the laws we already have
..many of us are becoming very aware -(& some of you were already there)...
..that great chunks-(not all!) of our justice system is either corrupt, broken, inept or all the above.
This is only one wildfire of many 'illegal alien' wildfires for our resources to cover.
Would that we had more Congressman Billybob's.
We must do something.....We have to do something....
It's exceedingly frustrating.
>>Wouldnt this guy have been given AMNESTY and citizenship by Teddy K and the bunch of hot-air blowers in the Senate? I bet hes disappointed.<<
The Kennedy amnesty bill would not have affected his immigration status, because he was already a Permanent Resident Alien (green card holder). The amnesty bill, however, would have legalized illegals with similar backgrounds. It also would have put extra burdens on immigration workers who would have to go through the motions of doing paperwork on 20 million illegals.
The laws were sufficient. The bureaucrats failed. And a 12-year-old girl was raped and murdered. (The rape has not been established, but that is the driving purpose of this pervert.)

Hi-ya, Green Eyes - long time ...
I agree with you completely, Gwen, with emphasis on the 'WE' part. I also agree that all the laws on the books now are more than ample to solve our 'criminal' problems if they were enforced. And yes - our 'Justice' system IS 'all-of-the-above' broken.
Which leaves the vast majority of law-abiding Americans in jeopardy. We have to live within the 'system', and work to make it better with our votes, because votes are the preferred way to replace defective representation and effect change for our betterment.
It's the 'meantime' that we live in while we work to make the system better, where we all should be awake and aware of our situation. I encourage self-reliance as much as possible for all Americans, not unlike the Boy Scout Motto - 'Be Prepared'!
'Going-gonzo' sounds like 'going-postal', and that's not what I mean. I do not advocate going on 'muzzie hunts' or 'illegal-alien' hunts. Being 'gonzo' just means that you're ready to defend yourself if you find that you're considered to be a 'dhimmi' or a 'gringo' by someone else who's attacking you.
Personally, I'm prepared to respond with Furious Anger and Terrible Vengeance, but that's just me. Stay well, sweetie .................... FRegards
>>The laws were sufficient. The bureaucrats failed.<<
The current laws would have been sufficient if
1) Local officials were required to check immigration status on such convictions and report to the feds. To me, this means that we need a federal law to nullify local sanctuary laws. The feds claim that the locals didn’t report the firearms violation. If that is true, the locals are also to blame.
2) The feds acted in the interest of the American people. I think you would agree that in many cases, they have not (The DC Sniper case). They need an “attitude adjustment” and the Bush administration is not interested.
3) The federal law is changed so that a single conviction of a sex crime mandates deportation.
Well, actually, I am from Corpus Christi, but I love the song.
Yet another sad ping....
'Going-gonzo' sounds like 'going-postal'...
Oh sorry, didn't mean to imply you were ready to Rambo!
Joe is a hero of mine!
I am furious. Are you? What are we going to do about it?
Furious? I was 'furious' 4 years ago, when the same thing was happening and good Americans were soundly smacked down if they tried to address the problem. And I didn't get 'furious' soon enough. It took being smacked up side the head with the invasion up close and personal to see how bad it is.
This particular case is devastating and we all share part of the blame for not speaking up sooner. A good innocent immigrant murdered by one that should have been deported and it happens on the 4th of July. That's pretty bad.
It is hard to fathom how anyone could bury an axe in the head of an innocent nine-year-old boy, but that was the unimaginable fate of Jordin Paulder of Fulton County, Georgia, on June 5. The killer was "Honduran native" Santos Benigno Cabrera Borjas.[snip]
The open borders bunch in Washington don't care what KIND of "immigrants" come to America, as long as the cheap labor keeps flowing. I have become a big believer of frontier justice in cases like this.
At the old KI Sawyer AFB on the upper pennisula of Michigan, the old B52 base had a very protected area to house the ready crews for the constant alert B-52s. The old SAC bases had these areas, and the areas were securely fenced. The old alert facility would be a good place to house these slaeazy criminals and make them walk to the dining facility in the nude in the winter. If certain anatomy parts froze, so much the better.
Like I said, AuntB, we are on our own out here in the wilds-of-America. We can't go Rambo or postal-gonzo on anybody that we think deserves it, but there are things we can do individually to enhance our protection.
Naturally, we should all be armed at all times, when possible. Just about everything else involves practicing being 'politically-incorrect'. Personally, I profile the people around me all the time, and I know where the mosques are nearest me, and, in the surrounding Counties.
When we think about it seriously, it's amazing just how much of the 'Political-Correctness' crap has been insinuated into all of our lives. Getting rid of it is a must. .................... FRegards
Now that I’ve moved to FL, I CCW every day.
Bet he is registered as a Demorat! Thats what they do, illegal aliens, the Dead, Ghosts, Dogs, cats, Rats they are registered to vote the Demorat lineup.
