Serial Killer Convicted

The anti gunners like to blame violent crime on guns. They continue to equate firearm restrictions with reduced violence. Even when they are proven wrong time after time, they continue the same ol' tired song and dance. You will find the same rhetoric at any of the anti's web sites, the gnashing of teeth and wailing in an attempt to suspend logical thinking and blame firearms for societies ills.

Firearms are not evil, nor are they violent, they are inert objects made out of plastic, wood and steel. They are tools that can be used, or misused, just like any other tool. It is the person behind the tool that can be evil, it is the person behind the tool that decides to be violent.

From the Star Telegram:

FORT WORTH -- Jurors heard from three women Monday who said they were victims of Juan Mesa Segundo, suspected of being a serial killer.

These women lived to tell their stories.
This news article is a touch graphic, if that bothers you, please do not read the following quotes.

Segundo, 43, was convicted of capital murder last week for raping and strangling Vanessa Villa, 11, after breaking into her north Fort Worth home Aug. 3, 1986.

This week in state District Judge Elizabeth Berry's court, jurors are hearing testimony to determine whether Segundo should be executed or sentenced to life in prison.

Both of those sentences are too good for this goblin, but of the two, you have to know which one I am for.

This is why they consider him a serial killer:

They have also heard testimony that he has been linked by DNA to the rapes and strangulations of Maria Navarro, whose partially nude body was found June 17, 1995, in Buck Sansom Park, and Francis Williams, a convicted prostitute who was found nude and facedown in a drainage ditch on Cold Springs Road on Nov. 15, 1994.
This goblin defines evil, he is a violent predator who should be permanently removed from society. It is a good thing he has finally been caught, he is finally off of the streets.

To get the death penalty, the prosecution has brought in past victims to testify:

21-year-old Fort Worth woman testified that when she was 4 or 5 years old, Segundo dated her mother. For about three months, they all lived together in the Ripley Arnold public housing apartments in downtown Fort Worth, which have since been torn down.

The woman said that sometimes Segundo took care of her while her mother worked. She said he occasionally took her to a convenience store and bought her candy. Several times when they returned home, she said, he led her into her mother's bedroom, rubbed her genitals and forced her to give him oral sex.

The woman said Segundo said that if she ever told, "he would kill me and my mother."

...No charges have been brought against Segundo in that case.
It really is a good thing we finally have him off of our streets, too bad we could not get him earlier.

Oh wait...

But he has been convicted twice before for crimes against women.
Yes, you did read that correctly. This animal has been convicted twice before, but was somehow still on our streets, raping and killing our women and children.

One of those women took the witness stand Monday. For several moments, she cried and tried to catch her breath before settling down enough to recount her experience.

The woman testified that she was sleeping in her north Fort Worth home Oct. 6, 1987, when she was awakened by someone touching her chest. At first, she thought it was one of her grandchildren, the woman testified.

As she sat up in the bed, she said, a man hit her in the face, covered her nose and began choking her. The woman said she fought back and was able to turn on the light.
She recognized her attacker, Segundo, as an acquaintance who used to work at the same company as she did.

"He didn't have his pants on," the woman testified.

She said she was able to unlock the bedroom door and scream for help. Her daughter and the daughter's boyfriend ran in, and 911 was called.

Segundo sped away in a car parked in an alley.

He had apparently entered her house through a broken window.

Segundo was arrested and convicted of burglary of a habitation with intent to commit sexual assault. He was sentenced to 10 years in prison. He was paroled in July 1989 and less than a year later was caught in another home.
Note the time line. The goblin attempted rape and murder in October of 1987. He was convicted and sentenced to 10 years in prison sometime in 1988. He was allowed back on the streets in July of 1989. He spent less than a year and a half behind bars on a ten year sentence.

Less than a year after the goblin was freed, he was caught again:

In that case, a woman testified, she was asleep with her children on a mattress in the living room of her Ripley Arnold apartment when she felt someone lie down beside her.

"I seen a male beside me, completely naked," the woman told jurors. "He started to try to take off my clothes."

The woman said that she fought and tried to run but that Segundo caught her and began choking her on the kitchen floor.

The woman said Segundo stopped when a downstairs neighbor who had heard her screams called to her.

The woman said she jumped out a second-story window to get away. Segundo had cut the screen on the window when he entered her apartment. The woman said she recognized Segundo.

According to court testimony, in that case, Segundo was sentenced to a year in jail for misdemeanor criminal trespass of a habitation.
If the anti gunners were truly about reducing violence in our communities, they would be all up on arms about cases like this one. A woman and a child were raped and murdered while this goblin was supposed to be serving a 10 year sentence. How many others were molested but have not come forward? How many bodies have not been found?

You do not reduce violence by placing further restrictions upon law abiding firearm owners. You do not reduce violence by prohibiting certain firearms due to size, cost or magazine capacity. You reduce violence by removing violent criminals from our streets, and keeping them off. The state failed the citizenry twice in this instance. Where is the outrage from the Million Moms? There is none, you know why?

He did not use a firearm.

Violence does not depend upon the tool, it depends upon the person.

I'm sorry to say that I'm actually related to this monster and if it weren't for my father. He probably would've killed my mother & I. My mom stated she was surprised he didn't kill us we lived in the same household as he did at one time. He hated my mom & was jealous of my birth. I have been reading on these victims and I am very sorry for your tragic e ENTs. Needless to say I do understand what you are going through. I too was a victim of molestation from a step family member. And do recall them two got along very well. I came forward and saved lives. I do wonder sometimes why didn't he just end it with me cause I live with that pain for the rest of my life. I hope he is put down soon he's a waste of society. There's no way he will make it out here alive. May God wrap his arms tightly around these victims and their families. Justice is only halfway served while he sits awake with no remorse. Take him god & make this world a better place. God bless
