Prosecutor: Trump tweet on NFL player's death 'ghoulish and inappropriate' (Hurl alert)
The Hill ^ | February 7, 2018 | Rebecca Savransky

An Indiana prosecutor criticized President Trump for his comments Tuesday after police said the man accused of killing an Indianapolis Colts linebacker in a suspected drunk-driving accident was an undocumented immigrant.

Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry said in a statement that comments politicizing the fatal crash were "ghoulish and inappropriate," The Associated Press reported on Wednesday.

Curry said that his office would "vigorously prosecute" the case, according to the AP.

“We are disheartened that ghoulish and inappropriate public commentary has politicized this tragedy,” Curry, a Democrat, said. “Much of such commentary, including tweets by the president, fails to acknowledge that both Edwin Jackson and Jeffrey Monroe lost their lives on Sunday. We will simply seek justice on behalf of the families of those two victims.”

Indianapolis Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson was killed on Sunday when a Ford-150 struck him and another man on the side of a highway in Indianapolis.

Indiana state police identified the suspect as Manuel Orrego-Savala, a Guatemala citizen who is in the U.S. illegally.

Orrego-Savala had been deported twice from the U.S.

President Trump on Tuesday tweeted that it was "disgraceful that a person illegally in our country killed @Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson."

"This is just one of many such preventable tragedies. We must get the Dems to get tough on the Border, and with illegal immigration, FAST!" Trump tweeted.

Curry filed felony charges Wednesday against Orrego-Savala. He is being charged with two counts of causing death while driving intoxicated and of leaving the scene of an accident, according to the AP.

This prosecutor is a jerk, President Trump's comments are the truth and we need more of it.

The truth hurts the Democrat agenda.

Things are changing. The judge is going to find that out soon enough.

I’m betting Indianapolis, where this jag-off is based, is a sanctuary city and he is a DemonRAT. Now what do I win?

If the illegal immigrant had used an "assault rifle" and gunned them down, then we would have had something the Dems could work with a little.

This next election needs to be about the hypocrisy of the left. It is so apparent at every juncture of society and media.

The prosecutor is a grandstanding Democrat and an idiot. Obviously.

Who does he think he is? Chuck Schumer?

Well, Indy is not a sanctuary city, Terry Curry is not a jag-off but he is a democrat. So, you are wrong on two out of three. In fact, although he a democrat, Terry Curry is not that political except when he's running for election. And every politician is political then. He a pretty good guy and he runs his office pretty well.

Curry, a Democrat, said.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Putting his party’s agenda of importing voters above the safety of the citizens.

Plenty who wear R jerseys that are the same way.

Indy is a sanctuary city in all but word and was also the city that directly said they would not enforce RFRA even if it was law and then ran a diversity propaganda campaign.

So you’re 0 for 0

I am getting so sick of judges. The majority probably deserve to be prosecuted themselves.

“Curry, a Democrat”

And therefore a moral leper who should be scorned. Who cares what filth this reprobate spews?

A number of years ago in Chicago, a little girl and her grandmother got caught in a gang crossfire. The little girl was killed. Witnesses identified the gang leader as a black man with a foreign accent. Police interviewed afterwards said they knew who he was. He was here illegally from Africa and had been arrested previously 24 times. I think mentioning his status was appropriate.

"Indy is a sanctuary city in all but word and was also the city that directly said they would not enforce RFRA even if it was law and then ran a diversity propaganda campaign."

How is Indy a sanctuary city in all but word and who supposedly said they would not enforce RFRA (as if it were a criminal law to be enforced). You don't have a clue what you are talking about. And you certainly don't know the first thing about Terry Curry
