Illegals Win Again; Gilmer Hernandez Case

Thursday, February 01, 2007

    Here is the story of Gilmer Hernandez, a sheriff's deputy in Edwards County, Texas. Mr. Hernandez, 25, was convicted on Dec 1. of violating the civil rights of an illegal alien who was being smuggled to Austin in a Suburban. Hernandez, stopped the Suburban late at night for running a red light. When he attempted to talk to the driver, the vehicle sped away. Hernandez fired 4 shots at the back of the Suburban, aiming for the rear tires and flattening one. One of the illegals in the car sustained a minor injury that a doctor didn't even think could have been caused by a bullet at first.

World Net Daily piece

Here you can find a more detailed report of the incident.

Things of Note:

The driver of the Suburban swerved towards the officer when he attempted to flee.

Gilmer Hernandez shot at the back tires.

The illegals paid in the neighborhood of $2,000 for the ride.

Here is the Code that he was tried under. Remember the lady whose rights Hernandez supposedly violated was crouched in the cargo area of a Suburban that had just tried to run over a police officer. She was in that vehicle because she had paid $2,000 for it to take her into the United States illegally.

Hernandez fired point blank at the back-driver-side tire. I would imagine a bullet riccocheted off something, up through the Suburban and hit the illegal laying in the cargo area. From what the doctor says in the report, I would say it just nicked her lower lip.

A gun an ammo was found in the vehicle.

Gilmer Hernandez faces up to 10 years in prison and will be sentenced in March.
