110% Preventable!

Suspect in fatality held again
As you'll see reading this article the newspaper got the headline wrong, I know, I know, I'm shocked as well. Being helpful folk we'd like to help...
Suspect in fatality on citizenship path!
Yay!
A man deported seven years ago before he could stand trial on charges stemming from a traffic accident that killed a 16-year-old Glendale girl was arrested this week after failing to show up for a court appearance.

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio called it a case of a broken criminal justice system. And a spokesman for the Maricopa County Attorney's Office pointed out that the same could not happen today under a law that went into effect after the November elections. The new law denies bail to undocumented immigrants who commit serious crimes.

Manuel Sanchez, 38, was indicted on manslaughter charges in 1999 but failed to appear in court because he had been turned over to immigration officials after posting a low bond and was deported to Mexico.

He was re-arrested in November but put up $27,000 bail and was released.

When he failed to appear in court again Wednesday, a Maricopa County Superior Court commissioner issued a warrant for his arrest, and he was apprehended later that day.

A new cash bond amount of $50,000 was set, and Sanchez was still in jail Friday.
An ICE spokeshole whines...
"We do everything in our power to detain and deport violent offenders, but the law is complicated," said Lauren Mack, a spokeswoman for the agency, now Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
Now here's the "take your blood pressure meds moment..."
April's father, Maricopa County sheriff's Sgt. Michael Jacobson, followed the case and learned that by 2001 Sanchez was back in Arizona. Jacobson alerted authorities but they could not arrest Sanchez in time.

He was rearrested Nov. 23. Jacobson said he then contacted ICE and learned that Sanchez had received a "green card" and was in the country legally.
But wait, there's more...
Mack could not immediately verify Sanchez's immigration status but she said that if he is here legally, he cannot be deported unless he is convicted.
Thank you Jesus that our great constitution is now being defecated on by lowlife scum. Yay!

Here's how blog "Pay Heed The Geek" sums up the timeline...
1. Come to this country illegally

2. Drive drunk and kill a 16-year-old

3. Skip bond and go back to Mexico

4. Get three other arrests for DUI and "other violations"

5. Get a green card
Joe Arpaio sums it up nicely...
Arpaio was angry that Sanchez had been allowed to elude arrest for so long. "Either Sanchez is incredibly lucky or he has learned to work the system in order to avoid prosecution," he said. "Either way, we have to repair our criminal justice system to prevent this kind of thing from happening again."
Yes we do Joe, may I suggest hangings?
