Murder/Rapist Jose Medellin Executed

Update 8/5/08 – Murder/Rapist Jose Medellin Executed – pronounced dead at 9:57 p.m. Medellin, 33, was condemned for participating in the 1993 gang rape, beating and strangling of Elizabeth Pena, 16, and Jennifer Ertman, 14. He and five fellow gang members attacked the Houston girls as they were walking home on a June night, raped and tortured them for an hour, then kicked and stomped them before using a belt and shoelaces to strangle them. Note: One of Medellin’s fellow gang members, Derrick O’Brien, was executed two years ago. Another, Peter Cantu, the ringleader of the group, is on death row. Two others, Efrain Perez and Raul Villarreal, had their death sentences commuted to life in prison when the Supreme Court barred executions for those who were 17 at the time of their crimes. The sixth person convicted, Medellin’s brother, Vernancio, was 14 at the time and is serving a 40-year prison term.  (Thanks to our friends at ARRA NewsService for the update)

This is good news – this scum deserved what he got and I’m proud of Texas for standing up for justice.  It is not up to the “World Court” to tell the United States how to implement our laws.   Considering what he did to those young girls, he should have been sent through the fast lane to the execution chamber. 

God Bless Texas!

  2. Lesson Learned here:

    Don’t mess with Texas…
    (or our kids)

    Cause, figuratively speaking, we will hang you.

  3. I think putting someone to death by injection is wrong.Its like going to sleep.Where is the punishment in that.Also,we have had people wrongly convicted on Death Row before that have been released after new evidence has been found.I think the best way for all criminals who have done such horrible crimes to our children is to put them in general population in the prisons with family men who are there that truly despise criminals who hurt kids because they have kids of their own on the outside.That way instead of these criminals having a nice little injection they get tortured just like they did to their victims.Thats what I consider true justice!!

  4. What happened to those poor girls was disgusting. Second most disgusting are the comments on this website. Do the terms “cowboy”, “redneck” mean anything to you? Your country is a mess.
