Illegal alien who murdered Kate Steinle found not guilty by SF jury

This is friggin’ unbelievable.

David K. Li reports for the New York Post that San Francisco jurors today (November 30, 2017) acquitted illegal alien Jose Ines Garcia Zarate of killing Kate Steinle, 32.

Kate Steinle: Killed by an illegal alien.

Zarate was found not guilty of charges including murder, manslaughter and assault with a firearm. He was convicted of being a felon in possession of a firearm.

On July 1, 2015, Steinle was with her father on Pier 14 in San Francisco, a sanctuary city, when she was struck down by a bullet that ricocheted off the concrete ground.

Zarate’s defense claims he had found the gun and it accidentally went off in his hand.

Before Steinle’s killing, Zarate had been held on an old marijuana charge and then set free by San Francisco Sheriff’s Department, despite a deportation order against him.

Steinle’s slaying became a political lightning rod, with then-candidate Donald Trump citing the tragedy as reason to build a U.S.-Mexico border wall and better enforcement of federal immigration laws.

Trump administration will deport Garcia Zarate. See “Lawyer of Steinle killer blames racism, and other eactions to Kate Steinle verdict“.

  1. I can’t say that I am not disappointed. That said, however, for me the evidence did not suggest that this illegal, deportable law-breaker deliberately, maliciously or in a premeditated fashion killed that beautiful young woman. What IS terribly disturbing is the fact that this felon was running loose with the full knowledge of CA authorities. Surely, there must be something which can be done to punish these CA enablers. Sickening.

          • Well, yeah. The State’s laws do matter. That’s the only way one can best determine if the jury acted responsibly–in keeping with existing State laws.

          • The facts that the jury didn’t get to hear were 1) he was pointing the gun at seals; 2) was acting erratically in front of many passerby’s, 3) RAN after the shooting and 4) dumped the gun into the Bay. And he changed his story numerous times. Hmmm….wonder how may white people can get away with that story, err…defense or blacks for that matter. They are setting some “damning” precedent. This has already happened 2x to my knowledge in CO. The leaders DO NOT CARE. As long as the leaders are getting enriched by the laws they pass and those they do not uphold, the DO NOT CARE.

          • What I find most infuriating is that an ILLEGAL – I don’t care the nationality – hispanic/somalian/saudi arabian/etc. are afforded the RIGHTS of the US Constitution. When did that happen, and how is that legal? How does a non-citizen get protection from the constitution, of which he is not a citizen? I can tell you, if I jumped across to Mexico, waving my Red, White and Blue, demanding Mexican Rights….I would be SHOT on sight. The federalies don’t mess around. But…..Oh yeah…..I guess that granting Constitutional Liberties to non-citizens is the new Liberal/Progressive Way….one that Holder and Obama and his predecessor the Bush cabal worked so hard to implement!

      • I know, DCG….so sad to say that IMO, the prosecution over-charged this felon with what they could prove……had they charged him with Involuntary manslaughter( which is what I always thought the prosecution could handily prove) , he MIGHT have been convicted & given 20 years at least (the MIGHT word is inserted here b/c it was not only tried in the state of Mexifornia, but in the capital of Mexifornia…..San Francisco—-so, this MIGHT have been a foregone “”not guilty” verdict no matter WHAT the charge—-jaywalking….whatever.)

        No matter to us (but not to Kate’s parents and loved ones), we ALL know this was not an “accident.” We all know that someone who has broken the immigration laws maybe 5 or 6 times and was caught and deported for it (but kept repeating the offense in order to be HERE in the US illegally for this last, most grevious crime) and who is also charged with other offenses (drugs) while here illegally and subsequently encarcerated…has NO REGARD WHATSOEVER for our laws…or perhaps even ANY laws….Mexican laws….US laws….if he’d have made it to Canada….do you think he’d have had any regard for Canadian law??????? In short. NO, to all of that. This sorry-ass man has never ever done anything “by accident.” His life leaves a trail of intentional law-breaking, intentional choices to re-offend……He has a record of making poor choices. He has a record of making choices that are illegal even tho’ he is here illegally and would be risking deportation ONCE AGAIN, if caught in these poor choices. He is an habitual offender in ANY country or state. He sucks up the “freebies” of anyplace that offers…..including the public defense of his actions in this country that resulted in the loss of an innocent life….and he was enabled in the freedom, in his past, present, and future, to have wanton disregard for the lives of others, the RIGHTS of others—citizens of this country to pursue “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness….”

        So, the man should be behind bars for 20 years at least for involuntary manslaughter. Maybe he’ll serve 2 years for the “illegal possession of firearms”” charge…..My hope is that he will never make it out of prison alive in those 2 years…..You know, he’s not a spring chicken…and then again…prison is a HARD place to do time when you kill a baby or child, or pregnant woman, or do a “Domer”….and yes, if you “do” an innocent young, pretty woman in a nationally-followed “benchmark” crime.

    • Mr. Delaney is apparent not troubled that a felon used an illegal firearm and killed someone with it. This is not in dispute and should have resulted in a manslaughter verdict.

      But apparently the jurors are proud to disregard facts such as the shooter messing about with the gun pubically before the shooting. Disregarding his prior convictions. Which the judge refused to be allowed for the jury to examine or his multiple deportations, that San Francisco has and continues to defend.
      We have seen the rule of law as San Francisco and the comrades interpret it.
      The San Francisco values that Mr. Delaney displays and parades with so proudly have resulted in this verdict. These are the same “citizens” who would deny your family the right to defend itself against these kinds of evil men.

      • Waco, of course I’m very much troubled by the senseless death of that beautiful young woman. But, vigilante justice is oxymoronic. My beef is with the CA officials who knowingly protected this loser from ICE. He had no violent convictions, so, from what evidence I was aware of, I can only reasonably surmise the shot was accidental. The really BIG problem for me is that per federal immigration law, upon his illegal return to the States after having been deported should have resulted in lengthy incarceration followed by a permanent bar from re-entry if he re-entered illegally again. But, CA authorities ignore immigration law in favor of PC. ICE can’t properly enforce immigration law without the cooperation of the dingbat socialists in CA and responsible stewards in DC. We now have a responsible steward, and, hopefully, law and order will return. But, again, I am livid when it comes to CA officials. If legally possible, they should be sued for gross negligence.

  2. I am sitting here still shaking my head. Innocent, BS. What ever happened to negligence homicide or something in that category?
    When the defense attorney made his little hateful speech, I felt the need to butch slap him. Excuse my French.
    Justice was not close to being served, but then we know aliens and invaders receive more from this country than the hardworking people.

Any bets on how long it’ll be until he gets busted-AGAIN-and gets released with a kiss on the cheek? Are we gonna have to take this creep Deer Hunting?

  8. Who,exactly,decided to violate our National Immigration Law,allowing this killer illegal alien to walk free? I believe it was Mexifornia’s own Governor Brown. Sign an ARREST WARRANT for him and name him as a conspirator in the murder of Kate Steinle. States that choose to knowingly and openly violate FEDERAL LAW should lose ALL financial funding of ANY sort. Don’t worry,GOOD people of Mexifornia. Your State has PLENTY of resources and people who can crank up your industry once you shut down your welfare system and get your deadbeat segment to start working. If you run short on workers,the illegals-I mean,the NEW Mexifornia residents can step up and earn their keep. (sarc)-or is it?

  20. How is it that Zarate was able to fire the gun THREE TIMES and be up against an “involuntary” manslaughter charge? Doesn’t more than one shot indicate a voluntary discharge of the firearm?
    Zarate will always be a low-life criminal. But it seems to me that California has been devolving for a very long time now, and we can’t blame Gov. Moonbeam for all of it.
    As a matter of fact, I would say that respect for Law & Order has been devolving across all of America and all of what’s left of Western Civilization, and I would charge that widespread and mainstream acceptance of contraception and abortion is the Culprit # 1 behind it. Ideology has replaced the idea that Justice is Blind: Every faction of society wants its own way, its wishful thinking enshrined into policy!

    But back to Zarate: It is a grave injustice to neglect or refuse to give the convicted criminal the Justice he deserves—it is an affront to God, and it deprives the felon of the motivation to repent.
    I do not believe we’ve heard the last of Zarate. Like the dog that returns to its own vomit, he’ll be back. And so will the hemophiliac leftists.

  21. Why am I not surprised…

    A coalition of Bay Area immigrant advocacy organizations — among them the California Immigrant Policy Center, the Asian Law Caucus and La Raza Centro Legal — extended their condolences to the Steinle family. During these difficult moments, the coalition said in a statement, the American people and their elected representatives face a choice:

    “Will we allow this tragedy to be used to further an extremist agenda? Or will we come together amidst the grief to advance our deepest values as a society?”

    Added the statement: “The administration and xenophobic forces will likely seek to exploit this tragedy once again to demonize all immigrants and bolster support for deporting millions of people who are part of the fabric of our communities.” […]

    One would think that an illegal alien running loose in our nation in possession of a firearm, a stolen firearm no less, would be subject to a least a minimum of 10 years.

    I am not familiar with all the details my self, but if it is true that he actually discharged the firearm three times, ‘accidental’ is a preposterous claim, or at least. should be attended appropriate, and due skepticism. It seems leniency was the intent.

IF it had gone to jury I’m certain that what what truckjunkie and DCG wrote above would have sufficed to convict on the lesser charge of manslaughter. But when I look at her face and then his, at her face, then his, her face and then I want to kill the creep!! Taking my BP meds next.
