Jose Ines Garcia Zarate to face Federal firearms charges


ABC7 News, San Francisco

Jose Ines Garcia Zarate was found not guilty of murder in the death of Kate Steinle last week, but a grand jury has other plans for the controversial defendant, indicting him on new charges.

Garcia Zatate now faces felony charges for possessing a gun and bullets and for being “an illegally present alien in possession of a firearm and ammunition,” according to a press release from the Department of Justice’s Northern District of California.

The indictment charges Garcia Zarate, 47, with handling a semi-automatic pistol and multiple rounds of ammunition on July 1, 2015, the day Steinle was shot and killed on San Francisco’s Pier 14.

Garcia Zarate faces a maximum statutory penalty of 10 years in prison if convicted of either felony charge.

    Good. Slam dunk for 20 years in a federal penitentiary by sentence on two felonies. Though, I really do doubt he will live out even a fraction of his sentence. Prisons are harsh for such as he. I know this is really cold but I’d frankly like to see him in a state that he’d come to welcome death. A definite poster child, if you will… Of course, I’d be good with 20 years and deportation, after sentence served, to his home country where he’d actually feel alien after so much time; the home country he was so eager to escape from that he came here… repeatedly and fatefully.

    I’ve been trying to figure out what seems so strange about his photo. I think his hair is dyed…to make himself look younger thus less recognizable should any law enforcement officer have a photo of how he looks as an older man. Not that he had anything to fear in the sanctuary state which cares more about him than his victims.

    The criminal mind is such a tremendous waste on every level. And the criminal mind enablers need to be made to pay along with the miscreant.

    At least a sense of justice is being upheld. What bothers me, well absolutely infuriates, me is the disparity in enforcement of the laws of this land.
    The guy who smashed his semi through the toll booth the other day killing the innocent lady sitting inside, was arrested for manslaughter, and I’m fairly positive he will be found guilty. Even in
    San Francisco. May be in Oakland since that side of bay is where tolls are taken.
    Yet this guy goes free. Add to the list of: licenses, insurance, e-verify, taxes, schooling, Hillary, IRS, Benghazi, Rice, Obama, Ferguson, Baltimore, Comey, …..well, you all know.
    It is utterly insane, maddening and in reality unfair from a section of society that screams equality loudly on a daily basis.

    Maybe this will after all backfire and start a return to sanity, a return to justice for ALL. Maybe.

      We gots justice for all, what we needs is equal justice for all. The administration of justice seems to be as random as lightning strikes.

        I see your point, but in my understanding of ‘justice” it would include being fair, which would be equally doled out.
        How about a blanket of fog “justice”?
        I do like me some fog.

          I like the way Kate Steinle’s father put it:

          Justice was rendered, but not served.

            And yet, as I sit here and think, how has “justice” been rendered. There either is justice or not. Same as in truth. Not an arbitrary concept. Or like paint, either applied or not, but you can tell the difference.
            This was a farce, so in your face spit to our President and his election campaign, that justice is nowhere to be found in the corruption and lawlessness of that city, court, jury, “lawyers”, etc, in this case.
            This strikes me to the bone. I have daughters, one whom just recently moved out of San Francisco. Another who stayed there last weekend to enjoy the Holiday season. I have a cousin that lives there as well, one who has not spoken to me since my Trump backing, after just a couple back and forth conversations.
            This version of “justice” has cost me family and good friends, as it has many of you. Some have actually lost their lives.
            I’m not in this category as of yet, but my son was broadsided by an illegal running a red light, who then fled and no “justice” was brought. Close call with death, but thankfully not injured too badly. Missed by a couple of feet.
            One of my daughters good friend was stabbed and killed randomly outside the night club down the street where she occasioned. Perhaps missed by a different night. No “justice” brought nor even reported in the news. Hmmm. Wonder why.
            To me, still cutting hairs in “rendered and served”, as is the “equal” application of justice. God bless this father, I grieve with him and admire his strength of character.

    Listening yesterday to the talking heads on NPR going on and on about Trump recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. They had some tweed-jacketed, squeaky-voiced professor wringing his little hands about how no one is preventing Trump’s dictatorial ruling from the Oval Office, his usurpation of powers reserved for Congress or traditionally wielded by State. Yeah, the hypocrisy is glaring but it was NPR.

    Worst part was how the prof and the NPRite were basically excusing potential Palestinian violence, terrorism and murder worldwide as an understandable reaction to Trump’s decision to illegally assist Israel in its stealing Palestinian territory. So if a Moslem commits murder anywhere in the world over the next few weeks blame it on Trump.
