SAN FRANCISCO —
A California state appeals court has thrown out the sole conviction against an immigrant who fatally shot a woman on the San Francisco waterfront in 2015.

The 1st District Court of Appeal on Friday overturned a gun conviction against Jose Inez Garcia-Zarate because the judge failed to instruct the jury on one of his defenses.

Garcia-Zarate was acquitted of murder in the killing of Kate Steinle, who was on a pier with her father when she was shot in the back in July 2015. …

Garcia-Zarate is in custody and facing federal gun charges.

Did the Judge say, “What’s a good day to release this ruling? Friday afternoon PDT before Labor Day? Yup, that’s the day!”

Judge whose sister heads La Raza rules 130-year law against encouraging illegal immigrants is unconstitutional

KCUR-FM reports that on Wednesday, Judge Carlos Murguia of the U.S. District Court of Kansas ruled, based on a Ninth Circuit opinion, that 8 U.S.C. §1324, the law prohibiting someone from “encouraging” or “inducing” illegal immigration, is an unconstitutional infringement upon the First Amendment. In doing so, Murguia vacated the convictions of two illegal aliens, Jose Felipe Hernandez-Calvillo and Mauro Papalotzi, who were convicted in August 2018 by a jury for conspiring to encourage illegal aliens to remain here through employment at a drywall company in Lawrence, Kansas. Four others were originally indicted by a grand jury in 2015.

This law has been on the books in some form for over 130 years, and numerous federal courts have upheld convictions based on §1324. Yet one judge, who worked for an open-borders group named El Centro Inc. and whose sister Janet Murguia is president of La Raza (now called UnidosUS), suddenly thinks conspiring to harbor and encourage illegal immigration violates the First Amendment.

Sweden Beset By New Crime-Wave Of “Humiliation Robberies”

A new kind of crime is making the headlines in Sweden, in Swedish known as förnedringsrån. Förnedring means “humiliation” and rån means “robbery.” The victims of these “humiliation robberies” are almost always children or teenagers. As previously reported by Gatestone Institute:

“The number of children who rob other children has increased by 100% in only four years, according to a new study by Swedish police… In 2016, there were 1,178 robberies against children under 18 years of age. In 2019, the number had increased to 2,484. The number of violent crimes where the suspect is a child under 15 years of age has also gone up dramatically: In 2015, there were 6,359 reported violent crimes where the suspect was a child under 15. In 2019, that number had increased to 8,719 reported violent crimes”.

The “humiliation robberies” have recently caused much consternation in Sweden. In Gothenburg, a criminal gang of youths forced their victim to kiss the gang leader’s feet, while they filmed him. After that, they stomped on his face until he passed out.

Bolton stabbing inquest: Somalian immigrant kills 7 year old girl riding scooter in park

A seven-year-old girl was stabbed to death by a stranger woman in front of her father as she rode her scooter past a park bench on Mother’s Day, an inquest heard earlier this week in the UK.

Emily Jones was out ‘enjoying the spring sun’ with her family at Queen’s Park in Heaton, Bolton on March 22 when the 30-year-old unidentified woman, who was sitting on a wooden bench, stabbed the girl in the neck. Emergency services were called to the park at around 2.30 pm – with the child rushed to nearby Salford Royal Hospital, only for Emily to tragically die a short time later despite ‘best efforts’ of doctors, the UK’s Bolton News reported.

Acting Senior Coroner Alan Walsh, described Emily’s death as ‘one of the most tragic’, instances he’d presided over at the start of the inquest into the child’s death at Bolton Coroner’s Court.

‘I have been truly touched by the photographs of Emily that have been sent to me. I send my heartfelt condolences to Emily’s family and friends, but particularly to her parents, who were present in the park and her father, who was nearby,’ the coroner said.

Barbara Kay: Our politicians may not care, but Christians are under siege across the world

An Italian study calculates that in 2016 a Christian was killed for his or her faith every six minutes, and the trend is accelerating

t is estimated that about one-third of the globe’s population suffers from religious persecution. By the numbers, Christians are the most persecuted religious group in the world.

An Italian study calculates that in 2016, a Christian was killed for his or her faith every six minutes. The trend is accelerating. A 2016 Pew Research report found that Christians were targeted in 144 countries, up from 125 in 2015. The Christian persecution NGO Open Doors revealed in its 2019 Watch List Report that within five years the number of countries classified as demonstrating “extreme” persecution went from one (North Korea) to 11. According to the Center for Studies on New Religions (CESNUR), 70 per cent of them were victims of tribal conflict in Africa alone.

The CESNUR study’s findings have been fleshed out in far greater depth by the Interim Report of an Independent Review into the global persecution of Christians by the Bishop of Truro, the Rt. Rev. Philip Mounstephen, conducted at the behest of Jeremy Hunt, Britain’s Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, and delivered at the end of April. A final report will be delivered in June, but the scope and nature of the problem is amply distilled herein.

What Does Baltimore Need? How About … Less Murder?

In reality, Baltimore’s big new problem is that Black Lives Matter won a political victory over the Baltimore Police Department in its Freddie Gray Riot of 4/27/2015 and the subsequent prosecution of six cops (none of them found guilty, of course). This launched a massive Ferguson Effect, which is visible simply in Baltimore’s annual murder tolls:

2010 223
2011 196
2012 219
2013 235
2014 211
2015 344 (Freddie Gray riot 4/27/15)
2016 318
2017 343
2018 309

Just getting Baltimore’s murder numbers down from the recent average of ~325 per year to the old normal of ~215 per year would be a huge improvement.

Her Name is Emily Jones: 7-Year-Old Girl Stabbed to Death by Somali Invader

BOLTON, UK: A seven-year-old White girl was stabbed to death by a Somali woman in front of her father as she rode her scooter past a park bench on Mother’s Day, an inquest heard earlier this week.

Emily Jones was out ‘enjoying the spring sun’ with her family at Queen’s Park in Heaton, Bolton on March 22 when the 30-year-old Somali woman (authorities, for some reason, have refused to identify her), who was sitting on a wooden bench, stabbed the girl in the neck. Emergency services were called to the park at around 2.30 pm – with the child rushed to nearby Salford Royal Hospital, only for Emily to tragically die a short time later despite ‘best efforts’ of doctors, the UK’s Bolton News reported.

Acting Senior Coroner Alan Walsh described Emily’s death as ‘one of the most tragic’ instances he’d presided over at the start of the inquest into the child’s death at Bolton Coroner’s Court.

‘I have been truly touched by the photographs of Emily that have been sent to me. I send my heartfelt condolences to Emily’s family and friends, but particularly to her parents, who were present in the park and her father, who was nearby,’ the coroner said.

‘In my 20 years as a coroner this is one of the most tragic deaths that I have dealt with and the loss of a beautiful, innocent, lively, intelligent and lovely seven-year-old in these circumstances is an unimaginable tragedy.

Transgenders More Likely to Commit Murder Than Be Murdered

But in the UK, analysts found that during the period of 2007-2017, transsexuals were 58% more likely to commit a murder than be murdered.

Violent Transgender Crime

In the US, 2018-19 has put a number of transgender murderers in the spotlight. In court, they often state that they are justified in killing others due to bigotry.

In Colorado, a transsexual and its partner shot 9 students at their school, later claiming that they deserved it for their “transphobia.” No evidence has been produced so far to substantiate this claim, not that “bullying” would justify taking a gun and murdering a classmate anymore than it did for the Columbine shooters.
