The wheels of justice may turn ever so slow in the rest of our union – in fact for years California was releasing convicted child molesters and murderers back into society, over and over, until the voters got wind of that nonsense and voted out one of the child-hating judges who pandered to the lowest of the low — but in Texas we got a giddy-up in our step to rid our state of convicted murderers, especially cop-killers.
Texas’ latest scumbag was executed this last Wednesday; he was ever so deserving of the silver needle award. Escamilla became the 24th convicted killer put to death this year in the United States. Texas has accounted for 12 of the executions.
The U.S. Supreme Court refused to review his case last week and no additional appeals were filed as his execution neared. The Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles on Monday decided against a reprieve and clemency. (Good!)
James (the murdered officer) and three other uniformed officers were working off-duty when the brawl started. Escamilla pulled out a gun and opened fire on the officers as they tried to end the fight.
The bullets from his 9 mm semi-automatic handgun struck James twice, knocking him to the ground. Escamilla then calmly walked up to the officer and fired three more shots into the back of his head before running and exchanging shots with other officers, witnesses said. A second officer wounded in the shootout survived. A wounded Escamilla was arrested as he tried to carjack a truck. I haven’t been able to find if scumbag was an illegal alien or not. Escamilla was already being sought for a neighbor’s slaying when he killed the Dallas police officer outside a club.
An overwhelming number of Texans are in favor of not only the death penalty, but to speed up the process to the end of the line; (Escamilla’s murdering rampage took place in 2001.) Anyone in Texas who would be against the death penalty is most likely an infiltrator from the left coast or a blue bloody bleeding heart Democrat, of which there are many. Thankfully, there are more of us than them so more executions will be coming soon.
