Talk about a travesty of justice. A double murder suspect, Bampumim Teixeira, was given a 364-day sentence by Judge Lisa Grant. Why so little?
So Teixeira, a green card holder, wouldn’t be deported.
Immigrant Charged With Killing Two Boston Doctors Sentenced To 364 Days, One Short Of Deportation
Daily Caller, May 10, 2017:
An immigrant charged Monday with the grisly murder of two Boston doctors reportedly had years earlier burglarized the same bank on two separate occasions and received 364 in jail days as a result — a sentence just one day short of legally justifying his deportation.
Why wasn’t the suspect deported?
Here’s the take, from the Daily Mail:
A man accused of killing two engaged doctors in their home and writing a ‘message of revenge’ on their wall has been charged before a judge at his hospital bedside.
“Bampumim Teixeira, 30, was charged with two counts of murder as it emerged he used to work as a security guard at the luxury complex where his victims lived.
“He got access to their $1.9million (£1.5million) apartment in Boston, Massachusetts, and allegedly slit their throats before trying to steal a bag of jewelry, police say.
“Dr Richard Field, 49, and Dr Lina Bolanos, 38, were murdered after Teixeira, who is originally from West Africa, burst into their penthouse on Friday evening, police say.
“Teixeira, who was shot in the hand, abdomen and leg in a shootout with police, entered two not guilty pleas from his hospital bed at Tufts Medical Center.
“Judge Michael Bolden ordered Teixeira to be held without bail and court-appointed defense attorney Steve Sack did not argue for bail. His next court date is June 8.
“Teixeira is originally from Guinea Bissau and immigrated to America with his aunt at an early age, according to the Boston Globe.
“Dr Field was born in Hammersmith, West London, and graduated from the University of Sheffield’s Medical School in 1999. He lived in Broomhill during his time in the city.”
