in Convicted Child Murderer Delacruz’s Blood Alcohol Level was 3 Times Over the Legal Limit
Because the defense attorney hopes to find one juror that let's it matter. I'm not saying it's not done for the exact reasons you are all stating, I'm saying it shouldn't matter to a juror, I can find you folks who look much worse than the mug shot who have never been violent in any way. I understand why it's done.
in Man Left with Serious Injuries After Possible Pit Bull Attack
The US needs to forget about all this gun control crap and focus on what needs to be done. It needs to be a criminal offense in the US to own a Pit Bull...... These dogs are worthless in society and are bred solely for their ability to maim and destroy with their overly muscled jaws. Turn them in for euthanization or pay a $500 bounty to anyone who can produce one alive or dead with no limit as to the amount that can be collected.
I would love to be a juror Jose! The mugshot picture illustrates a lot about how the man wanted to be perceived in public. In the mug shot, his appearance was that of a disheveled person, and courtroom appearance was that of a put together person. The difference in the two pictures shows a striking difference in the the way the man wanted to look, and the way the lawyers wanted him to look for the jurors. With some degree of certainty (since I wasn't there) I would think the prosecution showed pictures of that little girl before the crime....and after the crime. It must have had an impact on the jury...if it didn't.....THEY should not be in that box. If appearance doesn't matter...why the big change?? Why doesn't he look like he did in the mug shot?
Yes, appearance does have everything to say about the way a man or woman feels about themselves. (btw I am qualified to be a juror!)
Knife attacks have increased five times higher than before the ban in the UK so it's working well.
Like Mr. Heston said, "From my cold dead hands".
You managed to use most of the trigger words used on foxnews. Except for "thug", and the more Presidential sh*t hole.
If it didn't matter Jose, why didn't he look the same in court as he did in the mug shot?
This young man is accused of a heinous crime. You are not. Does the mug shot show you someone who would not do that crime, someone who has their life together? That is what the courtroom appearance would have you believe. Two really different people in those pictures. Look, I covered a trial for a sheriff accused of shooting someone in the back. There was a competency hearing...the accused had to have two nurses lead him to the defense table...he was in such a state the nurses had to stay with him during the hearing. The hearing went on for four days...he was led in...out...in..out...much like a child. The jury found him competent to stand trial. Trail started the next day...the accused walked in under his own power...dressed nicely...even the judge was taken aback. He was found guilty. But there was a lot of drama to get there. Yes, young people may think appearance does not telegraph who you are, or who you want to be. But, sadly for those...it does indeed. When you are on trail for murder, and may get the death penalty, you better do everything you can to convince that jury you are an upstanding citizen. That is exactly why he was dressed the way the lawyers wanted. It is o.k. with me if you disagree.
When you grow a uterus and give birth, your opinion on abortion will be relevant.You abide by your morals just don't expect the rest of us to...
Take the sheet off your face. You may see things differently. Prayers for the victim.
Delacruz's attorney's "going there" is not a reflection of the American public... Not a reflection of Texans and definitely not a reflection of the residents of our city.
If you're angry that your tax money went into these proceedings, maybe you would rather get a job that pays cash under the table or perhaps go play Batman of San Angelo!
Our system is doing it's job and I doubt those jurors will forget the images they were subjected to view of the crime scene when they deliberate on his sentencing! They have already convicted him to die in jail regardless of the form, be it life w/o parole or the death sentence!
You seem to have this master plan complete with all the answers and everyone else would be better following your crazed ideologies rather than letting the system do it's job.
What do you really want to see happen based on the system we have in place? We're not going to flay and quarter him as one of your previous posts implied, we're not sending his family "back home"... and we are not neutered! Go to an anger management program and have a good night before your issue's lead you to become the next criminal we read about.
Todays defense attorneys have one sure thing going for them, moreso now than ever -- the neutered American public who are suckers for "but he had it rough as a kid" BS.
It's infuriating that a little girl can be murdered in cold blood, and later we're all footing the bill to hear when Isidro's last Christmas was. Adding insult to injury, is this POS's family of riff raff doing little to own the horrific crime he's committed.
Maybe the U.S. isn't right for Isidro and his family. They seem like they'd be more content back home where life is cheap and everyone looks the other way while their young men perfect their craft in career criminality.
@ "I hope this 23 year old dog owner is able to cover the medical bills for the victim.''
East 11th street? I'm going to take a shot in the dark, and say no. Insurance is a great idea, but do you realistically see pitbull owners going out of their way to consider concepts like precautions and consequences?
Typical ghetto mentality: We're dirt poor, our backyard fencing in in shambles and we have absolutely no sense of personal responsibility. Let's get one of the most destructive and volatile breeds of dog possible!
The pitbull is to the hood rat, what the expensive sports car is to the mid-life crisis. Pretentious posturing.
If you're outsmarted by an animal that chews on garbage and howls at sirens, you're not 'badass', you're not 'gangsta' -- you're a f'ing moron.
in Police: Shiny, New F-250 Driver Blows Off Red Light, Causes Chain of Crashes at Busy Intersection
"Shiny, New F-250 Driver"
Your comment loses me, if course pictures of the girl before and after is evidence. The way the man looked in his picture is nother, plenty of disheveled folks don't kill. I look drunk and disheveled plenty of times in my 20s never did I kill anyone. I'm not defending this kid at all, but his appearance dosent have anything to do with his guilt or innocence.
There is a state law about vicious dogs that require owners of dogs that have attacked people to have insurance on their dogs. I doubt if it is enforced, kind of like the auto insurance laws.
