In 2014, Luis Bracamontes shot and killed two two Sacramento-area deputies, wounded another one and shot a civilian in the head to boot. He is on trial now and even his defense attorney has said he did what he did. Mr. Bracamontes is not very remorseful.
He is up for the Death Penalty and I am guessing his lawyer is trying to avoid that and get him Life without Parole.
He needs the get the needle. Sending him to prison is just a vacation for the asshole and not only that, he will be considered a VIP because he offed two cops. He will be high in the prison’s criminal pantheon, to be admired and respected for his past behavior. He will be mentioned as example to be followed by lesser criminals. Dead, he will only feed the worms.
Then again, I would not mind to see him found not guilty and let walk around free in the streets of Sacramento. Oh yes, I forgot: He is an illegal alien with a long record. That is the California Way, right?
