Where Are The White Riots for Kate Steinle?

I guess their fears about Trump as president and the kinds of people who live between the coasts were very, very wrong.

I will answer the question in the headline: They don’t exist.

There are no mobs of white people in the streets rounding up Mexicans to torture, kill or deport them. There are no mobs chanting slogans like “hands up, don’t shoot” was chanted less than a year before Steinle was killed.

The fact that Jose Ines Garcia Zarate possessed the gun that fired the bullet killing Kate Steinle on Pier 14 in San Francisco in July 2015 was never in question. That fact that Zarate’s presence in the United States was illegal was never in question.

The trial was to determine if Zarate was culpable of murdering Steinle, not if he’s a criminal. Zarate is a criminal, but his presence in San Francisco is protected, and now he’s been found not guilty of murder.

In a response to the verdict, Attorney General Jeff Sessions released a statement saying that despite California's attempt at a murder conviction, Zarate was able to walk away with only a firearm possession conviction because he was not turned over by San Francisco to ICE.

Oh, there’s anger. On Twitter.

But where are the mobs? You’d think Charlie Daniels, James Woods, Ann Coulter and Ben Shapiro (especially) would be calling out to the millions of white people that folks in Berkeley are so scared of. You’d think that Trump voters would rise up with their guns and Bibles and go out to right this wrong.

You’d think they’d march on San Francisco and put those pajama boys in their place. You’d think there’d be open war on the streets.

But I don’t see it.

None of that has happened.

The biggest fraud ever perpetuated on Americans by the left-leaning media was “hands up, don't shoot.” Though that narrative was thoroughly debunked within days of Michael Brown’s death in Ferguson, it was picked up and routinely parroted by the main stream media as the reason for the street protests.

They portrayed Brown as a “gentle giant” who was gunned down in the back by a police officer while he held his hands up. The real story was barely told, and when prosecutors and a grand jury found no reason to charge Darren Wilson, the New York Times still went with the “hands up, don’t shoot” narrative. A year later, they never corrected the record.

The protests continued, because those who wanted Wilson to be railroaded didn’t care about evidence. They wanted blood.

Kate Steinle was killed by a bullet fired from a stolen gun that Jose Ines Garcia Zarate had illegally in his possession. Zarate was illegally in the United States and had been deported five times yet returned to San Francisco because it is a sanctuary city.

Zarate was found not guilty of all charges except illegal possession of a firearm. Where is the justice for Steinle, who would be alive if the gun in Zarate’s hands didn’t kill her?

There is no actual justice. But there are also no white protests.

I guess all their fears about Donald Trump as president and the kinds of people who live between the coasts were very, very wrong. They’re also wrong about a great many other things.

Heaven help me, but sometimes I wish we would stand up (or out in the streets) more than we do - for justice! This was a travesty of epic proportions and is truly worthy of a mob statement!

What do you do with a city or a state that is too stupid and bereft of judgment to govern itself?!


Historically, occupation/'reconstruction'. But the stupid has to reach the point of open rebellion first, so...

I was not surprised at the verdict, considering where it was, but I am still outraged. What do we have to do to get congress to take action and end all funding of states that allow sanctuary cities? I do not care if a court ruled that they can't withhold funding. The court is wrong, ignore it. States can ignore Federal laws if they happen to be left wing states but the Feds and conservatives have to go along with whatever a court says. BS.

Let cities like minneapolis, san francisco and any other so called sanctuary city rot. Do not visit them. Spend your hard earned money elsewhere,

The justice system in the US is the best in the world,BUT at times it does fail the citizens.This crime should have never happened if the laws were enforced.Close the borders,build the wall and obey the laws,pretty simple. The left who want the US to fall will cry about the illegals but shed not one tear for the innocent .

I suggest that everyone read the redstate article "Have We Been Lied To About The Kate Steinle Case?" https://www.redstate.com/sarah-rumpf/2017/11/30/lied-kate-steinle-case/

After reading that, I don't think any jury anywhere would have convicted the man of first degree murder. The standard is "beyond a reasonable doubt." The defense was successful in sowing doubt in this case.

Had the prosecution sought a manslaughter charge we would be having a different discussion.

@Randall Umm...the prosecution did exactly what you said.

"The six-man, six-woman jury was asked to consider first-degree murder, second-degree murder and involuntary manslaughter charges against Garcia Zarate."

He was found not guilty on all charges except illegal possession of a firearm. They didn't even convict on involuntary manslaughter.

The good news: we aren’t vigilantes. The bad news: the prosecution could not make the case and the defense could. The jury could sympathize with the family’s loss but had to set that aside. The jury could not use his previous history and had to set that aside. The true villain is the city of San Francisco. They let the guy go. Now we need to address sanctuary cities. The defense attorney suggested that Trump not take to Twitter...I agree. Trump needs to march his * over to Congress and in no uncertain terms tell them to put a damn law together stripping sanctuary states and cities of all federal funding. No tweets, no executive orders that get shot down by liberal judges, a law that shuts these people down, period the end.

He would have gotten more punishment if he killed a dog.

By all means condemn California and the SF sanctuary city policy as but for those policies Ms. Steinle is possibly still alive. Condemn congress for not passing "Kate's law". But as for the charge of murder or manslaughter, either the evidence supports the charges or it does not. Murder/manslaughter charges are very much the same in every state so pull this case out of Cali and put it in "name your state" and it is very likely you get the exact same result. Please read the later articles on this site for an overview of the facts and evidence that led this jury to acquit.

@Steve Berman thank you for the link. I should have read more stories about this today before I wrote my comment.
