ANAHEIM, Calif. — Police have arrested three people on suspicion of killing a young magician known as "El Magnifico" who has performed on "The Tonight Show."

Anaheim Police announced the arrests Friday, two days after 19-year-old Adrian Ramos was gunned down during a robbery attempt while walking home from a class at Fullerton College.

Ramos, who called himself "El Magnifico," performed at charity events, at Hollywood's Magic Castle and had also made a number of TV appearances, including alongside Jay Leno on "The Tonight Show."

Are the three people arrested intruders on American land? I am curious because I have heard a lot of statistics of killings and robberies and abuse by people here illegally.

I wonder if there is a central clearing house that shows on a state by state basis the number of killings and robberies done on our homeland by people who have snuck in here from Mexico.

3 arrests in death of magician from 'Tonight Show'

Notice the addition of drama to an otherwise classic gangland killing. Just the mention of "Jay Leno" grabs the reader's attention and makes you read on only to discover that the victim was just a one time splash in the pan........

Is it me or does anyone else notice the over-hyping of many of the news stories being reported today? Are these writers competing for some sort of prize?

There is no such thing as an "intruder on American land", you anti-Kenyan racist, you.

Well, there's Richard Pryor.

And (I'm stretching a bit here) Freddie Prinze.

Thank you for the link...FR DougfromUpland noted an AMAZING thread that shows incidences all around the globe on a world map that is updated...it is really something.

I went there and clicked on gangs and then border incidents ( the legend for that one is an American flag and you should SEE the number of flags in Arizona compared to the rest of the country.Here is the web address:http://www.globalincidentmap.com/

I am SO FLIPPIN MAD at the LIBERALS I am spitting nails!! Why won't our press do some research and TELL OUR FELLOW AMERICANS exactly why ARIZONA HAD TO DO SOMETHING! Do our fellow LIBERAL FRIENDS WANT fellow Americans to be KILLED from Mexican gang wars and intruders who are CRIMINALS?

What has to happen to wake the leftists up ? Does Michael Moore have to lose a family member to a mexican criminal? Does UHbama have to have someone he loves KILLED by an intruder? What has to happen to wake these crazy people up?

By the way...on that website you can click on a variety of concerns-ie terrorism, or border security, etc and a different map shows up...I clicked on terrorism out of interest and a legend for it appears close to the gulf -I was wondering if it might be about the oil rig?

Yeah, such a loser - YOU ARE

And Bob Hope and George Burns, but hey, they were gettin' up there.

Re-read the post you stupid idot, not once did I call him a loser......Are you projecting?

Maybe I was mistaken, perhaps he was a brilliant magician with many, many appearances on Leno, Letterman, etc. the list goes on and on and on...........You would know, right?

With that being said, how come we never heard of him? Maybe I was right after all............

Very funny. He did a good job in that show, squirting lighter fluid all over himself and others.

Time to make up a new bumper sticker.

“A country with borders is like a house without walls.”

Let the Loony Leftists think about that one for a while.
