Illegal Immigrant who Killed Kate Steinle is Judged “Not Guilty”

Jose Ines Garcia Zarate is a criminal illegal with several felony convictions. He has been deported from the United States five times.

In 2015, Zarate shot Kate Steinle as she walked along a public pier with her father in San Francisco. President Trump has used the tragedy as a way to draw attention to the dangers presented by sanctuary cities, like San Francisco, where dangerous criminals are allowed to walk free.

San Francisco police released Zarate from prison despite a request from the feds to detain him for deportation. He shot Steinle about three months later.

ICE Deputy Director Tom Homan has criticized California cops for failing to honor the request, insisting the “tragedy could have been prevented if San Francisco had turned the alien over to ICE, as we requested.”

Thursday night, Zarate was found “not guilty” of first degree murder, second degree murder, or involuntary manslaughter.

The only thing he will be punished for is the possession of a firearm by a felon. Apparently, shooting Kate Steinle was an accident.

Zarate’s defense team maintained the argument that Zarate picked found a gun, which had been stolen from a federal Bureau of Land Management ranger, and the weapon “just fired.”

The ruling has elicited widespread outrage and has renewed calls to establish #KatesLaw, which would increase the penalty for deported illegals who try to return to the US and are caught.

“The illegal that killed Kate Steinle was found not guilty,” tweeted former congressman Joe Walsh. “American, 2017: Illegals are protected and Americans are left to die. America is lost.”

This outrageous ruling is yet another example of a growing trend: sanctuary cities prioritize the rights, freedoms, and safety of illegal immigrants over those of American citizens.

“The illegal alien who shot her was just given more rights, grace, and favor than the devastated Steinle family. San Francisco is NOT a safe place,” tweeted Sarah Palin.

President Trump called the ruling a “disgrace,” saying, “if this isn’t a wake up call to reasonable and law abiding people I don’t know what is.”

Zarate will soon be deported a sixth time, but I don’t imagine he will stay home for long.

    We were on the pier that day, 15 minutes earlier my son and grandson were walking on that same pier. We feel terrible for the family and there certainly was no justice in this case. What is the use of deportation of criminals that are Illegally here. I am talking about illegal immigrants that are criminals! Shame on San Francisco!🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

    Difficult to believe you want to eliminate “fake news” when your story is not signed. Who wrote it, what are their credentials and to whom can we send questions? Your opinions are obvious and so are the few sources you have cited. How do we know you are not some Russian blogger trying to stir up anti-racial and anti-immigrant sentiment with your faux news?

    Guess the Judge needs to move him in with his family and help him get on his feet, instead of deporting the murderer ! The judge shouldn’t be afraid that this low life Micah scum would harm anyone in HIS family ….. right ! If they deport this Mexican murderer, they need to pick him off with a sniper when he crosses the border for the 6th time !

      Anyone commenting on this case, should take the time to read what the prosecution was confronted with. From the court records, the jury had specific instructions and it appears they did their job based on the evidence presented. If any other person had been tried, our courts would probably have treated them in the same way. It no doubt is a tradgity that an innocent person was killed. And my sympathies go out to the family.

      How are you more righteous than Jose, if you are going to kill people crossing the border with a sniper rifle. And as a Post Author, why do you not identify yourself by your born name? What have you got to hide?

      Damn right.

        I’m unsubscribing from this biased, bigoted newsletter. Zarate is not a murderer. The courts determined it was an accident. It wasn’t his gun. The fatal bullet ricocheted off of the pavement before hitting its victim. Accidents happen. The fact that he is an illegal immigrant and a felon are irrelevant to the case. I suppose you are against the rule of law if it doesn’t go in your opinionated favor. Enough said. I’m outta here . . .

      It wasn’t the judge, was a jury of his peers that found him not guilty. The whole city is a simmering cauldron of liberal radicals so no surprise I guess.

        I live in the Bay Area, and have been following this tragic story since the beginning. I strongly believe the root cause of this hideous event was the omnipresence of guns in our country to the extent that a careless individual would leave an unsecured, loaded gun beneath the seat of his car. Since he was from out of town, maybe he hadn’t heard about the rash of car breaking San Francisco has been experiencing in recent months. So along comes the feckless Senor Zarate, a non-violent offender, whose felony consists primarily of returning repeatedly to the U.S. Whoever stole the gun left it wrapped in a tee shirt under a bench. Zarate picked up the gun, fired it off, he said, by mistake. The bullet hit a nearby wall, ricocheted off and struck Ms. Steinlee. The jury could not, in view of the evidence, find Mr. Zarate guilty beyond a reasonable doubt of the crimes he was charged with. Now you on the right who have rushed to judgement against Mr. Zarate, I would like to ask you to take your own advice: GET OVER IT. The jury has spoken. The word among local newspeople is that the D.A. overreached, asking for a harsher sentence than could be proved.

      If I WASN,t so old, I would be more than happy to be the sniper. And the police and judge should be next in line. My prayers go out to the family.

    This outrageous act by the city of San Francisco is just a tiny fraction of what is wrong with our once great Country! If our Federal Government doesn’t grow a pair and shut down the “Sanctuary” cities this is just the tip of the iceberg.

    Disgusting outcome. This judge and the bleeding heart SanFrancisco jury apparently bleeds for the illegal alien felon but not for the victim senselessly and needlessly murdered by some scumbag who should not have been here in the first place. What is wrong with you people in SanFrancisco? Are you stupid or malicious? Stay out of SF, too dangerous.

    Maybe someone should. ‘accidentally’ kill him too with a handgun that “they just found on the ground an oh….it just went off”. His lawyers should also go with this piece of scum!

    He owes a massive back tax bill that should be paid off before he’s allowed to return home across the border.

    • Post Author

      Bwa ha ha… a freaking illegal immigrant? Pay back a tax bill? What have you been sniffing

    Jury was not allowed to see his immigration status. Why the hell not? This pile of shit felonious waste of space should be shot on site if he comes back. For breathing US air.

    • Post Author

      His immigration status is irrelevant to the charge. Either he is guilty or he is not. What can’t you get about that? Is there a difference in the penalty “just” because he is an illegal immigrant? No. Of course not. But obviously you can’t understand that can you?

    In case anyone missed this annoying little fact…

    Zarate was found innocent of murder by a jury of twelve of his su-peer-iors (he was after all just a “low life Micah scum/Mexican murderer”!).

    Kate Stienle’s unfortunate death was eventually ruled an accident, based on the evidence presented and verified during the trial.

    But hey… let’s not let some inconvenient facts get in the way of the fun we’re having!

    I’m discussed with my tax dollars going to any Sanctuary City. I insist that the Federal Government withhold all Federal funding from all sanctuary cities until the stop putting the rights of illegal aliens ahead if our own citizens.

    • Post Author

      I think California should stop sending our tax dollars to the Federal Government since the Feds are punishing us with the horrible tax “reform ” ripoff. Then let’s see how all the poor Dotard-loving red states pay the bills.

    San Francisco may need another earthquake in order to wake up the failed city officials, judges, and substandard law enforcement.

  18. Post Author

    Yet another slap in the face for justice, this will not be the last tragedy faced by our legal citizens at the hands of these criminal illegals, I would suggest calling them criminal aliens as they all break the law by illegally crossing the border. Sanctuary cities must be stopped and these liberal idiots who step on our laws must be held to answer.

  19. Post Author

    What a shame! The poor Stienle family, how will they live with
    this unfair judgement. I think the Judge who would not let the
    jury see some evidence should be held accountable and explain
    why he felt the need to protect a murderer who himself admitted
    that he DID fire that gun. So a liar is pardoned????
    Take away all funds that you can Pres. and see how this once
    great city will provide. Let the Liberals pay for services then!

  20. Post Author

    Just another growing example of the inadequacy of our judicial process to enact justice, and the sad condition that our immigration
    and law enforcement agency’s fail to have the ability and freedom to work together. Another sign of the times. It won’t be getting better…….

    Living in France is one thing desired by many individuals. If you want to live in France then you have to get French property. You can read the advertisement section of the newspapers which has the section of houses for sale in France. After making a suitable choice, you should research about the properties for sale in France. French property is now a days very much wanted also.

    If you want to live in France and spend your life there you should select a proper house. French property is not cheap and you need to make a major investment. You must also know about the properties for sale in France at various locations. The houses for sale in France come in different prices depending on the location

      Load of crap. Plenty of foreigners live in France and do not purchase property. They Rent! Take your bullshit and shove it where the sun don’t shine.

    California is the sess pool of America! Involuntary manslaughter usually refers to an unintentional killing that results from recklessness or criminal negligence, or from an unlawful act that is a misdemeanor or low-level felony (such as a DUI). The usual distinction from voluntary manslaughter is that involuntary manslaughter (sometimes called “criminally negligent homicide”) is a crime in which the victim’s death is unintended. Seems pretty straightforward to me. Justice in the United States is supposed to be blind, however it appears to be stupid as well!!!

    American justice is a joke and the Democrat socialists Party made it that way with Illegal immigration. Oh the Rino’s are also responsible.

    He should have killed someone in Texas instead. I do not normally believe in the death penalty but it would be good if he got it! Regarding the situation now, I think he should be jailed permanently in the US if he won’t stop coming back. The government should look after its own citizens. He is not a citizen. Gun fired accidentally – yeh right!

    • Post Author

      Why do you think the gun didn’t fire accidentally? After all, it was probably one of those Mexican guns. And we all know how shoddily they are made.

    The verdict is depressing. Considering there was a 12-person American jury who found this illegal not guilty of cutting down a young American girl when she had so much to live for. We are asked constantly “Don’t black lives matter” now we need to start asking “Don’t American lives matter”. After being deported for the 6th time, I imagine the killer will be back again and probably strike again. And be found “not guilty” again. It truly is depressing and frightening.

    Yelp. As I’ve recently written, the jury was not allowed to here that Zarate was a seven time felon or that he had been deported five times already for being an illegal immigrant. At most, he may get up to three years for possession of a stolen weapon, less time already served (which is just over two years), and then may be deported for a sixth time. In my opinion, a complete failure of the Justice System (AnotherOpinionblog.com).

    This is dreadful! How dare they let this guilty guy go. He needs to be behind bars for the rest of his life plus some. Grrrr!!!

    • Post Author

      12 unbiased (allegedly anyway) people heard the evidence produced by the prosecution and defence attorneys and found him not guilty. Yet “you” declare him guilty on what… your intimate knowledge of the case from where… oh, the newspapers online and gossip. Give the world a freaking break sunshine, give it a break.
