In an interview you'll see only on ABC7 News, the man accused of shooting and killing a young woman at San Francisco's Pier 14 admitted to the crime and talked about where he got the gun.
Jose Inez Garcia Zarate, who was also known as Juan Francisco López-Sánchez, didn't recall every detail because he says he doesn't remember everything that happened. But in the 45 minute jailhouse interview, he revealed how the shooting went down and why he kept returning to the United States after being deported numerous times.
Barnard: "Did you shoot Kate Steinle, the lady who was down at Pier 14." Sanchez: "Yes." Barnard: "You did shoot her?" Sanchez: "Mm hm," he said with a nod.
Told police he was 'shooting at sea lions.'
This is this generation's OJ verdict: jury nullification for political reasons.
Didn’t the family try to sue the BLM agent? When the feds said they couldn’t do that I knew the fix was in. Not a bit surprised by this verdict.
Daddy help me. Kate’s last words.
One more thing...jury didn’t hear he had 7 felonies.
when I heard the ‘sea lions’ thing, I though, oh, they’ll hang him for sure for shooting at critters in tree-hugging land.
Unless the judge overrules the jury, if I were in jail for accidentally shooting someone, I’d be burning up the wires demanding my attorney get me full release forthwith on the case law that has just been set. It was an accident so no jail, even with prior felonies says California. Let the legal games begin.
Sadly, he would have faced more jail time for kiling a sea lion than Kate.
It is California after all.
You’d think felon with a gun in California would be sufficient for life in prison next to Charles Manson.
,,,,,,,,, AGAIN!!! ,,,,, jury nullification ,,, S/F jury sends America a message .
The message ,,,, we will vigorously defend and protect the rights of criminal illegal aliens who murder American citizens .
How does this illegal scumbag get a jury trial? These illegals should be processed in a special federal court - not local courts. The US Constitution shouldnt give illegals any rights other than a trial and protection from cruel and unusual punishment.
IMHO the left thinks it just got a win over President Trump. In reality, more Americans just came to realize that illegal immigration is out of control and something needs to be done to change that.
In CA, if you or I left a gun in our car and it was used in a crime, WE’D GO TO PRISON.
It is California after all.
INS should send him back across the Mexican border with the gun he used to shoot Kate, sewn into his pocket. Then, when he's on Mecheho's side, screem out "He's gota GUN!
Death sentence, carried out & problem solved!
