Texas Tells World Court to Go To Hell - Executes Illegal Alien Monster

Good riddance. Despite protests from Jorge Bush, Clueless Condi, Europe, Mexico, and an army of useful idiots, Texas terminated Medellin. Burn in hell Medellin. He stained this earth for 15 years while his victims - two girls 14 and 16, were brutally tortured, raped and murdered and never saw their lives play out. There are more than 50 Mexican illegal aliens on deathrow and they are all trying to get out of their crime using the international courts. While Mexico is busy conspiring to conquer the US Southwest, they are assisting their citizens who violate our borders and commit horrendous crimes against American citizens. Our politicians do nothing. They are our enemies.

GUARDIAN: Texas defies Hague and executes José MedellínMexican man at centre of international legal dispute is executed in Texas for rape and murder in 1993.


A Mexican man at the centre of an international legal dispute has been executed in Texas for the rape and murder of a 16-year-old girl in 1993.

While protestors both for and against the death penalty demonstrated outside the Huntsville Unit near Houston last night, José Medellín, 33, died after being given a lethal injection.

The execution came just before 10pm shortly after the US supreme court denied a last request for a reprieve.

Pleas for a stay came from Washington, Mexico and the international court of justice (ICJ).

They had all urged Texas not to execute Medellín until a hearing had been held to determine whether or not his original trial was sound.

The state's Republican governor, Rick Perry, rebutted attempts to delay off the execution arguing that the state's courts were not bound by the rulings of the ICJ.

The ICJ in the Hague had ordered Medellín's case and those of 50 other Mexicans on death row be reviewed because none had been informed of their right to consular assistance.

The US state department said it was powerless to delay the execution, noting that the country's supreme court had ruled in March that president Bush did not have the authority to intervene in the case. [That's right, Bush and Condi support the idea that the World Court has authority over American courts!]

The Mexican government has now sent a note of protest to the US state department, expressing "its concern for the precedent that (the execution) may create for the rights of Mexican nationals who may be detained in that country."

Medellín and five other teenage boys in his Houston street gang took part in the rape and murder of two girls, Elizabeth Pena, 16, and Jennifer Ertman, 14, in 1993.

Medellín, who was born in Mexico but [illegally invaded] moved to the US as a child, was convicted of Pena's murder and has never contested the conviction.
Two other members of the gang were also sentenced to die. Two had their sentences commuted to life in prison. The sixth, Medellín's brother, Vernacio, is serving a 40-year sentence.

Medellín's case has become the focal point of the dispute between Mexico, which does not have the death penalty, and the US over whether or not some Mexicans on death row were denied fair trials because of the lack of consular access.

The 1963 Vienna Convention, which both Mexico and the US signed, requires foreigners accused of crimes to be given that opportunity.

Over the last five days, Medellín's lawyers tried to stop the execution by arguing to the Supreme Court that it should be put off until Congress had a chance to pass pending legislation that would require a review of similar cases.

They argued that Medellín would be deprived of life without due process if he died before Congress acted. [ ...and there are members of Congress who wish to destroy our sovereignty and give it the World Court and the UN. They are our enemies.]

But the court decided 5-4 that the possibility of congressional action was too remote to justify a stay.

One member of the supreme court, justice Stephen Breyer wrote however, that to permit the execution would place the US "irremediably in violation of international law and breaks our treaty promises."

Mexico, which opposes the death penalty, has used the Vienna convention on consular relations to try to block the executions of Medellín and 50 other Mexicans in the US.

Twice in the last five years, the ICJ has said hearings should be held to determine if the 51 trials were fair.

Humans originated in tropical Africa where food is available all year round and hence little foresight or planning is necessary. The main determinant for survival is territorial defence and aggression against other tribes. The mental capacities which are selected by evolution in such an environment are aggression and grabbing what you want when you want it.

However, as tribes moved out of tropical Africa, they entered lands where food supply was seasonal and the climate often hostile. Living in these environments was intellectually challenging and the most intelligent survived. The genes of the tribes who moved out of Africa consequently evolved for greater foresight, forward planning, delayed gratification and greater co-operation and technical organisation - for example in irrigation works and seasonal sowing, harvesting and storage of food in climates with a marked summer/winter or wet/dry season contrasts.

This is the reason for the huge difference in intellectual ability, levels of aggression and civilisation potential between the original tropical Africans plus their immediate descendents and all other peoples.
