    1. Why do u have to be racist and mention mexican ? Not all Mexican are the way you make them sound? I don’t think it was necessary to mention have mentioned in race at all.

  1. Ultimately Fernando García, should not be looked down on. He saved the life of another person who ment the world to him as well as potentially saved a 13 year old (child), girl (related) from an on going sexual assault, whom could of already been a victim or was about to be. It’s better not to judge before hand, please be patient and let the facts speak for them self. (For) The victims family, I’m really sorry for (your lost) however please let Justice take place, or The Truth on why humans react. Our mighty lord knows each and one of his creations and gives us free will of our actions. I personally Love The Father the Son and the Hollyspirit. I’m so sorry we have to endure life in these times of tragic. I’m sure with the facts everyone involved will either stay in the dark or everything come out to light/transparency

    1. What are you saying the victim was not doing harm to anyone and the suspect tried to not only murder the victims but the victims family members ..who are you to be talking about this ?

      1. Who are you to be coming at someone like that Jamila?. You’ve only read and seen what is put out there don’t speak until you know full facts about a case. Your so quick to judge and respond, May god be with your bitter self.

  2. Dirty Mexicans killing filthy wetbacks. Case closed for any cross section of jurors. Just another day Norte de mexico.
