Illegal immigrant and admitted cop killer Luis Bracamontes bragged, “I wish I had killed more of the motherfu**ers,” during his murder trial Tuesday.
A California judge has to clear the courtroom when a defendant refused to keep quiet during the trial proceedings.
It’s been over three years since Luis Bracamontes, an illegal alien who had been arrested and deported multiple times in Arizona, went on a crime spree in Sacramento that ended with two police officers killed.
Bracamontes is on trial for the murders and faces the death penalty, his wife, Janelle Monroy, could spend the rest of her life in prison.
The Sacramento Bee reported that Bracamontes showed no remorse, said he would escape and kill more people, and said one cop that he killed was a “coward.” His lawyer has questioned his sanity and admitted to the jury that his client was responsible for the deaths of the two police officers, but hopes to save his life with additional evidence that could mitigate the circumstances; Bracamontes was high of methamphetamine when he committed the murders (via SacBee) [emphasis mine]:
Barely two hours into the first day of trial for accused cop killer Luis Bracamontes, the proceedings devolved Tuesday into a spectacle of the defendant threatening to kill more people, giggling as a prosecutor described his 2014 crime spree and his own lawyers once again questioning his sanity.
Just after lunch, a lawyer for the illegal immigrant told the jury that his client in fact did shoot to death Sacramento County Sheriff’s Deputy Danny Oliver and Placer Deputy Michael Davis Jr. in a daylong spree of violence that started in a Motel 6 parking lot near Arden Fair Mall and ended in a shootout near Auburn.
“Let me be clear and up front,” said defense lawyer Jeffrey Barbour. “Mr. Bracamontes is responsible for the death of Deputy Danny Oliver and Detective Michael Davis.
“He shot them both.”
“I wish I had killed more of the mother——-,” he boasted to the jury as prosecutor Rod Norgaard described the 2014 crime spree.
Smiling broadly, Bracamontes added, “I will break out soon and I will kill more, kill whoever gets in front of me…There’s no need for a f—— trial.”
That outburst led to Sacramento Superior court Judge Steve White briefly removing the jury, then warning Bracamontes he could be removed from court.
As Norgaard described the ambush slaying of Oliver, he recounted how Oliver’s partner, Scott Brown, came under heavy fire as he emptied his 15-round clip at Bracamontes in the Motel 6 parking lot near Arden Fair Mall on Oct. 24, 2014.
Brown retreated under heavy fire, Norgaard recounted. As he talked, Bracamontes grinned and, finally could not restrain himself.
“Coward,” Bracamontes said of Brown, who had just seen his partner killed.
At one point, as Norgaard described the wounding of Jeff Davis (who is not related to slain deputy Michael Davis), Bracamontes interrupted again with, “Cause he’s stupid.”
That drew a sharp rebuke from the judge: “Be silent.”
Again, this is partially why Trump was elected in 2016. It’s these stories that show how our immigration system has broken down. Bracamontes should never have been here. Sacramento County Sheriff’s Deputy Danny Oliver and Placer Deputy Michael Davis Jr. would probably still be alive if he didn’t hop across the border (again) and commit a crime spree. The families would be spared the killer’s sick enjoyment upon hearing how he killed them in court. The same can be said for Kate Steinle’s family and other families who lost loved ones, murdered by illegal aliens.
“I will break out soon and I will kill more, kill whoever gets in front of me … There’s no need for a fu**ing trial,” Bracamontes shouted with a smile.
Judge Steve White retorted, “Be silent!” but Luis kept barking, “I killed the f***ing cops. They’re f***ing dead. I don’t f***ing regret that.”
After the outburst, White decided to remove the jury and warn Bracamontes not to interrupt again under threat of removal.
His public defender, Jeffrey Barbour, claimed the comments were a result of poor mental health, proposing, “We believe Mr. Bracamontes’ outbursts, his laughter, are a function of his mental illness.”
“He is not incompetent to stand trial,” Judge White countered.
The illegal immigrant faces the death penalty for killing two California sheriff’s deputies in 2014 and has admitted guilt in multiple court hearings.
Barbour was honest with the jury, telling them, “Let me be clear and upfront, Mr. Bracamontes is responsible for the death of Deputy Danny Oliver and Detective Michael Davis. He shot them both.”
Bracamontes illegally entered the United States from Mexico and has been deported multiple times.
The trial gained national attention due to the current immigration debate and California’s recent “sanctuary state” declaration.
