Texas executes Mexican-born killer

August 5th, 2008 . by TexasFred

HUNTSVILLE, Texas (AP) — A Mexican-born condemned prisoner was executed Tuesday night for the rape and murder of two teenage girls 15 years ago after a divided U.S. Supreme Court rejected his request for a reprieve.

“I’m sorry my actions caused you pain. I hope this brings you the closure that you seek. Never harbor hate,” Jose Medellin said to those gathered to watch him die. Nine minutes later, at 9:57 p.m., he was pronounced dead.

Medellin’s execution, the fifth this year in the nation’s busiest capital punishment state, attracted international attention after he raised claims he wasn’t allowed to consult the Mexican consulate for legal help following his arrest. State officials say he didn’t ask to do so until well after he was convicted of capital murder.

Medellin, 33, was condemned for participating in the 1993 gang rape, beating and strangling of Elizabeth Pena, 16, and Jennifer Ertman, 14. He and five fellow gang members attacked the Houston girls as they were walking home on a June night, raped and tortured them for an hour, then kicked and stomped them before using a belt and shoelaces to strangle them.

Their remains were found four days later. By then, Medellin already had bragged to friends about the killings.

Texas executes Mexican-born killer

A couple of days ago I posted this story: Texas: Man should be executed despite World Court objection. Well, tonight I am PROUD to say, Texas executed the bastard. He IS dead, really, really dead, very dead, totally and absolutely DEAD, and the World Court can pound sand up their butts.

The U.S. courts denied any more appeals, the Supreme Court gave their blessings and that murdering, raping Mexican is history.

The World Court pretty much ordered TEXAS to not execute this animal because he was born in Mexico, and our Mexican loving president tried to persuade the state of Texas to not execute this guy, President Bush DOES love him some Mexicans.

What does it matter WHERE he was born?? He lived here for the last 30 years, legal or not, and he committed his crimes here, it stands to reason that he should PAY for those crimes here.

And the great state of TEXAS, in a loud and strong voice, told the World Court and George W. Bush to go straight to hell, and then they sent Jose Medellin there.

In the immortal words of Mr. Ron White: If you come to Texas and kill someone, we’re gonna kill you back.

    I’m with you… GOD BLESS TEXAS !

    I would have loved to see the world court try to stop this. Heck, one Texan with a 1911 would have scared those pansies off

    “What does it matter WHERE he was born?? He lived here for the last 30 years, legal or not, and he committed his crimes here, it stands to reason that he should PAY for those crimes here.

    That sums it up all right there. Why does it matter where he was born? He wanted to be in America so bad, and was here and living it up. He lived here, and committed a crime here. One does not get to go running back to their nation of birth when they screw up in their adopted land. Sorry doesn’t work that way. Once you step foot into this state rules NOW apply to you.

    It’s like entering someone else’s home. I don’t care what you do at your own house, when you are visiting or even having an extended stay, new rules now apply in someone else’s home.

    Case in point here. I a situational death row type person (grill me for that later), but there was no doubt in my mind that regardless of RACE or BIRTHPLACE, this man was a boastful killer, and he was guilty.

    That’s all I’m going to say on that.

    ‘Cause God blessed Texas with His own hand
    Brought down angels from the promised land
    Gave ‘em a place where they could dance
    If you wanna see heaven brother here’s your chance
    I’ve been sent to spread the message
    God blessed Texas

    The thing that concerns me is that 4 justices of the Supreme Court dissented, choosing instead to take orders from the World Court. I fear the next 4 years will determine if we remain a sovereign nation or be submissive to the UN and World Courts.

    With over 12 years living in Texas plus two children born in the heart of Texas and daughter and granddaughter living in Austin combined with four schools (UTSA, Trinity U., SWT, SA Jr Col.) I attended…I’m truly part-Texan and the rest is all American. The Texas part of me has a clear understanding of where “Over yonder” is…

    “Over yonder” = that’s where they buried that SOB!

    Bottom line is: This piece of human waste got a fair trial just like any American Citizen who would have committed the same type of crime. He had an appeals and review process all the way up to SCOTUS. He got nothing less than any one of us would have received in our judicial system. Matter-of-fact, he got more than any of us since the World Court and Bush got involved.

    The air is a little cleaner in Texas today…and one more time…”Fock the One World Government, The Mexican Government, and International Law”

    I never remember reading anything about US being beholding to internation law in OUR Constitution.

  12. comment number 12 by: pat houseworth

    and those 4 scum bags on the US Supreme Court that voted with the 1 world government!

    God help us if Obama gets his stinking Marxist hands on the court.

    Better late than never I suppose. At least Texas stood it’s ground, and for that I am very proud!

    Hey…where did the little ‘add a picture’ thingy go? :(

  18. comment number 18 by: Katie

    About time! Took them long enough. Now can we get the others done as well.

    One down,
    a metric ass-ton to go.

    I say the next time one of these U.N. (Un-Needed) or World Police start sticking up for these filthy bastards, we send the criminal to live with them, whether it be in California (like they need any more) or across the globe.

    To hell with those bleeding heart bastards. Let ‘em sink on their own, don’t let ‘em drag us down at the same time.
