Luis Ramirez Murder: Looking Back at Early Witness Videos Confirms Murder As Racial Hate Crime!

The early testimony of witnesses is always important to remember.
Here is a video of Arielle Garcia's eye witness testimony. She spoke to CNN in July, 2008, just days after the murder. Arielle Garcia talks about the crime. From the video you can see how close Eileen Burke's front porch was from where the crime occurred.
Arielle said Ramirez was walking away. The jocks were still screaming racial slurs. Luis gets into a fight with one. Then the others jump in and the fight moves into the street. He is sucker punched and is laying unconscious on the ground when he is murdered with the final kick to the head.
The same video continues. Immediately following Arielle's video is an interview with Walsh's Father talking about the crime. He said it is a bad nightmare for all the families. He just didn't expect this from his son or the other jocks.
Then Crystal Dillman, Luis' fiancee talks. She accurately predicted Shenandoah would try to justify the murder. She accurately predicted the town would demonize Luis. She clearly understands the town and predicted well. She said the town wants these jocks to look perfect. However, Luis Ramirez was a good man. Luis won't receive justice. They will make the kids look like Angels and make Luis look like a demon. No justice for Luis.
The next video shows a CNN reporter saying it took 2 weeks for the perpetrators to be charged. Mistreatment by police. Lack of sympathy for Luis Ramirez on behalf of the community.
From the CNN article dated 7/31/08:
SHENANDOAH, Pennsylvania (CNN) -- By the time help arrived, Luis Ramirez lay convulsing in the middle of the street, foam running from his mouth. Crystal Dillman displays the religious medal worn by her fiance, Luis Ramirez, who died from a beating. Blows had struck the 25-year-old illegal Mexican immigrant with such force that they left a clotted, bruised impression of Jesus Christ on the skin of his chest from the religious medal he wore. His attackers were white teenagers, including star students and football players, witnesses told police.
After a night of drinking, the teens taunted the undocumented worker with racial epithets, pummeled him to the ground and then kicked him in the head...
By this time, Eileen Burke, a retired Philadelphia police officer, had stepped out of her home after hearing Arielle Garcia's pleas to stop the beating. Burke recalled hearing one final, ominous threat as the teens ran. "They (Piekarsky & Donchak) yelled, 'You effin bitch, tell your effin Mexican friends to get the eff out of Shenandoah or you're gonna be laying effin next to him,' " she said.
Even in July, 2008, the Lawyers planned their defense - the demonization of Luis Ramirez:
Fanelli said he plans to investigate whether Ramirez has a criminal background. He also questions why the engaged father of three was walking on the street with the girl, and the nature of their relationship. Ramirez's fiancee says he was walking her younger sister home.
A lawyer for Walsh said he is equally skeptical about the ethnic intimidation charge. "They called each other names. The victim was calling them obscenities, vulgar names, and they said things back to him that would hurt him," Roger Laguna said. "It just means it was a foul-mouthed argument, not ethnic intimidation."

Dee,

The one statement that Ariel made that stands out is "It happened so fast."

Ariel was not sure what color the shoes were that kicked Ramirez. But it happened so fast. Her friend was on the ground foaming from the mouth. It was perhaps the craziest, most chaotic few moments of her life.

Other witnesses' credibility were also attacked for their lack of perfect recall. Eyewitness Eileen Burke was not called to testify She has stated that the prosecutor told her that she had discrepancies in her statements.

Sad that everyone's "story" of what happened that night was challenged by the police, the defense attorney, the prosecutor, and the by the tainted jury.

Yet, the recall of drunken cowards was never questioned.

It happened so fast.

All who were there had so much madness to process in so little time. A man was in the process of receiving a savage deadly beating by a group of drunk cowards. Racist slurs were loudly yelled. It was a crazy, quick moving event.

It happened so fast.

So why is it that the only ones with perfect recall were teens whose minds were impaired by alcohol?

People cannot drive straight drunk but they can have perfect recall of a crazy violent beating?

Why is it that the drunken teens who were so emotionally charged that their angry screaming of racist slurs were heard inside the homes of the nearby residents are the only ones with perfect recall from that night?

Drunk and emotionally charged. Yet they had perfect recall.

Why is it that the drunken, emotionally charged kids who were busy beating Ramirez to death were able to recall the event as if it were rehearsed and choreographed?

Why?

Because they were advised by the corrupt Shenandoah cops to get their story straight.

They lied.

They got their story straight.

The crooked Shenandoah police obstructed justice.

The defense attorney took advantage of the fact that it happened so fast. He knew that the local jury of White peers was going to accept any excuse offered from the defense and come up with an acquittal

A bunch of cowards got away with killing a hated, demonized Mexican on the streets of Shenandoah because it happened so fast and the cowards were able to get their unchallenged story together.

America, what part of injustice do you not understand?

Dear Dee :

Thanks for your fight for Justice, Morality, Kindness, Ethics, and a better world of Understanding.

Mr Obama and the Department of Justice, directed by Mr Eric Holder have a Golden Opportunity of Advancing American Justice and showing to all the World a better Nation than what Bush and Cheney built.

We expect a Great Breakthrough in Judicial History, overturning a Racist Trial of Infamy.


*********************
*********************

Mr Obama is assailed by many enemies, he is called a "commie" and a "coward before terrorists" by the most Idiotic TV anchors of Hate, that also happen to be Hidden Racists or Postracists.

With the change of command in Afghanistan Mr Obama is showing that he does not believe in Nation Building and imposing Democracy by fiat, decree, military might, or an Ukaze ( like the Tsars of Russia ).

But he has to guard his back against the many base attacks of all those Widows or Widowers of power.

**********************
**********************

Have you though of this ??

The president of the USA can not do what he wants or what is more rational or better. He has to be political and satisfy millions of fools.

Because Politics has Inertia or Momentum and you can not change course on a dime.

So, do not expect great changes like CIR = Comprehensive Immigration Reform, Sonia Sotomayor in Supreme Court and other happy endings.

Mr Obama should not make noise to wake up Dracula that is now dead in his coffin ( Republican Party ).

The best battle cry of Republicans is also the banner of Hate and Racism. The best politics for Obama is to do nothing in the Area of Latinos.

But the overturning of Infamy is something that all intelligent persons have to approve, all ethical and moral persons know that Murder and Coward attacks on any People can not be tolerated. Only scoundrels approve and applaud Cowardice and Bastardy.

A bunch of Republicans is spanking me !! - Many against one - Do you want to join a good fight ??

Gather.com is a wonderful site of Forums, Conversations and Discussions, People do not seem to be the meannest Racists or Lowest Scum.

I wrote a Leading Article, or Head Post in Gather.com :

I explained how Obama may last for 8 years or perhaps 16 years like Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

How Obama is going to "torture" the guys at Fox News and other Idiots

Then I woke up the Dracula of Republicans. My spankers have answered with rivers of hate against :

1) Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi ( I admire and Respect this Lady )

2) "The race card is the final hiding place of a liberal that can't continue a debate based on it's merits. I'm not saying racism doesn't exist, it does, but the Democrats manipulate it to further their agenda."

3) Furious Attacks against Wanda Sykes for Kidney of Mr Rush Limbaugh. ( I love and admire Wanda ).

4) "I don't have a problem with the color of Obama's skin, I have a problem with the thinness of it." -- Dennis Miller at Bill O'Reilly's comedy show.

5)"As far as you pretty much castigating the America youth as following sheep, it is what I would expect from a typical liberal."

I am a humble ant and my "Bag of Tricks" is certainly very limited. I am not the smartest follower and admirer of Mr Obama and the Democratic Party. I enjoy laughing at fools, but I consider that this fight is very uneven, many against one.

So if you want to say some painful realities to those educated by the Wisdom and Profundity, the Great Depth of Intellect of Bill O'Reilly and Dennis Miller go to the above link.

By the way. I still think that Obama has gas for many years. He will be a Great President.

Slow week? No mention of the two people taken into custody at the White House for immigration violations?


No mention of the Administration deciding not to release torture photos and ending military tribunals?

No mention of Pelosi vs. the CIA?

You used to talk about these things.....

Az and to my readers,
My brother passed away late last night. He had been ill so it was not too unexpected, but it still was a shock. His funeral is on Monday and I am not blogging for a few days. I just decided to check in for a second before going to bed tonight. It has been a very sad and long day today.

Dave said...

Dee,

Sorry about your brother. My thoughts are with you.

Dave

The Arizonian said...

My condolences.

It is always rough losing family.

Vicente Duque said...

Dear Dee :

Sorry for the death of your brother. I know that you are naturally a very kind and noble person and that you are very familiar.

I also know what it is to care for sick and old people in my family. We have to be very kind to old people or sick relatives. Life is too short and we have to correspond to love while the other person is still alive.

A Victory for Women and Asians.

Two ladies will contest in July in an electoral runoff for the seat vacated by Hilda Solis in the House of Representatives.

The Two Ladies are cousines and have the same Last name "Chu".

From "Whittier Daily News"

http://www.whittierdailynews.com/news/ci_12408078

"Though Judy Chu's lead in the race was substantial, she did not win the 50 percent of votes necessary to avoid a general election for the 32nd Congressional District seat. Instead, the Democrat will face her distant cousin, Republican Betty Tom Chu, a Monterey Park councilwoman, in a general election July 14. Still, Judy Chu is likely headed to Congress. She claimed 32 percent of votes - just over 15,000"

"In the Republican race, Betty Tom Chu beat out restaurateur Teresa Hernandez, who was favored among the Republican party and spent $100,000 on her campaign - significantly more than any the other GOP candidate. Betty Tom Chu won 10 percent of the vote to Hernandez's 9 percent."
