Kerry Fights to Save Illegal Alien Cop Killer from Texas Death Row

January 22, 2014 by Daniel Greenfield

Since he threw away all his Vietnam medals, maybe the Mexican government can offer him a few replacements for his work on behalf of a cop-killer.

 

Mexico’s government is trying to block the execution of a convicted cop killer in Texas this week, arguing that it would violate international law. And our very own Secretary of State John Kerry is working with them — and the United Nations – trying to save the life of an illegal alien murderer.

 

Edgar Arias Tamayo, a 46-year old Mexican man, was in the country illegally when he killed Houston police officer Guy Gaddis. Tamayo was arrested by Gaddis outside a nightclub in 1994 for robbery. While being transported to jail, Tamayo pulled out a hidden gun and fatally shot Gaddis twice in the back of the head, execution-style Scissors-32x32.pnghttp://www.frontpagemag.com/2014/dgreenfield/kerry-fights-to-save-illegal-alien-cop-killer-from-texas-death-row

 

By the way he was put to death --- "you kill in texas we will kill you back"

Texas executes Mexican despite diplomatic uproar

Southern state ignores opposition from Mexico and from US State Department

Tamayo (46) was strapped to a T-shaped gurney in the state’s death chamber at a prison in Huntsville, injected with a lethal dose of the sedative known as pentobarbital and pronounced dead at 9.32pm. Tamayo was the 509th inmate executed by Texas in the past three decades and had been one of 21 foreign citizens on its death row.

 

The case became an international issue that Mexican officials and US Secretary of State John Kerry said threatened to strain relations between the two countries. Scissors-32x32.png

In executing Tamayo, Texas officials disregarded an international court’s order that his case be reviewed to determine what impact the violation of his consular rights had on his conviction. That decision - made in 2004 by the World Court, the top judicial body of the United Nations - was binding on the United States under international law, Mr Kerry had told Texas officials. No US court had given Tamayo such a review.

 

Texas Governor Rick Perry and state attorney General Greg Abbott had argued that the state was not directly bound by the World Court’s decision,Scissors-32x32.png
