(TN) Judge Tells Illegal Alien He is "Unwelcome Undesirable"
Chattanooga.com ^ | August 26, 2007 | Staff Writer

Posted on 08/26/2007 7:14:22 PM PDT by Tennessee Nana

General Sessions Court Judge Bob Moon said the man charged with setting a fire in a downtown hotel is "an unwelcome undesirable" illegal alien.

Judge Moon told Bario Gomez, "Undesirables like you are not welcome in this country. You are a Latino terrorist who entered this country illegally and soon plotted significant personal injury and damage to the people and businesses in our community."

Authorities said Gomez is an illegal alien with no proof of identification. Officials also said he gave police a false name.

The INS placed a hold on Gomez, 20, after charges of aggravated arson and aggravated vandalism were filed against him.

Judge Moon told him, "It is undesirables like you who create many unjustifiable problems and prejudices upon the good people who enter this country legally in chasing a dream for a better life for themselves and their families.

"Mr. Gomez, you nor any other citizen from a foreign land has a right to enter this country; you simply have a privilege to enter this country through the proper legal channels.

"You are a domestic terrorist who is an imminent threat to the safety of our people and their property. You are also a supreme flight risk from justice. It is with duty, comfort and ease that I increase your bond significantly in an appropriate amount to insure your appearance in further proceedings and to insure the safety of this community."

The bond was raised from $30,000 to $1 million. The previous bond was set by Magistrate James Purple, which Judge Moon described as "another ludicrously low bond."

According to Arson Investigator James Whitmire, Gomez checked into the hotel with his girlfriend. Testimony by Whitmire and management officials indicated that Gomez placed a toaster filled with matches in a microwave oven in his room intending a massive "delayed burn."

Proof also showed that multiple towels were stuffed into the toilet in order to retard the water supply. The hotel manager testified that the towels were stuffed so deeply that the pipes had to be disassembled to remove them. She also stated that the room was severely damaged and vandalized.

Capt. Whitmire testified that "hundreds of people were evacuated, including children."

He said, "If the fire had established itself many families and children would have most likely lost their lives or been severely injured. Being on the fourth floor, the fire would have been difficult to contain."

This judge is really bucking the PC multicultural crap that burdens America today. Wonder how long before the ACLU is on his butt?

I wonder if he would like to be governor of Tennessee?

“Domestic terrorist”—but...but...but I thought illegal aliens were all innocent, law-abiding, tax-paying, children-loving, doing-the-work-Americans-won’t-do ‘undocument immigrants’?!

You go, Judge Moon. Hopefully your common sense will spread throughout the land to other judges!

Helluva gutsy move by Judge Bob Moon considering that it goes 180 degrees against this Administration’s views on illegal aliens and their pretend rights. Silly rabbits, rights are for citizens.

Thank you so much for posting.....great story about a great man whom most here would never have heard about if it were not for you and the existence of Free Republic.

It’s so refreshing to hear honest, plainspoken and truthful language in this particular context, an arena that has become choked with PC-speak. Hopefully this perp will spend a very, very long time in a jail that does not feature a TV or any creature comforts.

This perp went to a lot of trouble to start this fire, and could have killed many people. He deserves life in prison, at the very least.

And Judge Moon should be our next President, or at least our next Homeland Security director.

On the man's origin.

The FR index reads "US Agents accused of aiding Islamist scheme". It quotes the Washington Post of the 15th August last. Well down in the article, it states that the DEA mentioned in 2005, that some Middle Eastern terrorists are fluent in three languages. They are entering the Americas, and are adopting the identity of Hispanics. It was said in a laconic, off hand way.

Food for thought.
