ABC News ^ | November 13, 2010 | KEVIN DOLAK

Posted on 11/14/2010 3:30:52 PM PST by ConservativeStatement

California man's rage at having his marriage proposal rejected by his girlfriend almost turned deadly this week when he allegedly tried to run her down with his car.

Mario Francisco Hernandez, 22, showed up at a Burger Stop restaurant in Pico Rivera, Calif., on Wednesday with flowers and "Will you marry me?" written on his car. His girlfriend, who police have not identified, apparently said no.

Let’s not pick on them, it’s probably a cultural thing.

After all it’s custom for mexican men and women to get blindingly stinkin’ drunk, and then to prove how macho/macha they are, to then get behin the wheel of a car and drive.

Probably this too is along those lines. Racists.

"I wonder why she said no?"

To be different? It looks like saying "no" is something new for her!

"After approaching the 21-year-old mother of his two children, Hernandez then returned with his 1987 Toyota Supra and, according to Det. Gabriel Ramirez of the L.A. County Sheriff's Department, he "tried to run over the female with the vehicle."

She doesn't want an undocumented husband for a mate?

Just teasing.

I have no way of knowing if he's illegal or not. :O)

How sad. It may have worked out if she had accepted. After all, he seems like a normal, clear headed guy.

Any proposal made in a public setting should be turned down. All the guy is doing is to pressure her to say yes, rather than consider it or turn him down. Cowards.

The car was a 87 Supra.. Witnesses reported that the car blew out two tires after jumping the curb and barely missed a pedestrian. Holly cow what a scene! I see children are involved... s. The couple has two children, a 5-year-old son and a 3-year-old daughter, and with low income, the family has been living with Hernandez's parents.

He probably figured she wouldn't need to sleep on it:

The couple has two children, a 5-year-old son and a 3-year-old daughter, and with low income, the family has been living with (his) parents.

If you love something, set it free. If it comes back to you, it’s meant to be.’

If it doesn’t come back, hunt it down and kill it.

Ah, right around the corner from where I grew up. Good ol’ Pico Rivera. See the true signage from Burger Stop:

Maybe he really got upset at the sales tax, highest in CA. 10.75% I think.

Poor little Mexican baby got his feelings hurt, so the only option was to commit murder to make him feel better.
That’s the Mexican way.
