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.

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

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.

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

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.

@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.
