The following excerpt is from an article that originally appeared on Keep and Bear
On July 1, 2015, Kathryn Steinle was shot and killed by an illegal immigrant in San Francisco as she walked with her father and a friend.
Jose Inez Garcia Zarate fired a .40-caliber handgun three times, and one of the shots he fired is what killed Kate.
On November 30, 2017, our justice system completely failed Kate, her family, and the rest of the nation when they acquitted the animal. He was found not guilty of murder and manslaughter.
The California jury deemed the illegal immigrant innocent beyond the shadow of a doubt…..despite the fact that he actually admitted the his fault.
In fact, the jury did not even know about Zarate’s criminal past because it did not directly pertain to the actual killing of the 32-year-old woman thus was not allowed into evidence.
