Here’s the Guatemalan illegal alien arrested for murdering four people, apparently at random, in Nevada. He looks like Peter Lorre playing a serial killer in M.

Under the Zeroth Amendment — Any wretched refuse from anywhere gets to immigrate to America, no questions asked — he deserves to be here because it would be discrimination not to let him in.

But I want to propose the Kondo Amendment for decluttering America: Does this immigrant spark joy?

If not, we can get by without him.

  1. He also looks like he’s smirking. Maybe he should be deported soley on account of that smirk. The Zeroth Amendment doesn’t give him the right to smirk. Go after people, yes, but smirk, no.

  2. In before Ron Unz arrives with links to his 10 year old articles they say nothing about unreported violent crime due to fear of deportation among Hispanics as well as what percentage of Hispanics are miscategorized as white upon arrest/conviction/incarceration.

  3. I suggest someone neatly fold and donate him to a Guatemalan family in need.

    Agree here.

    Also, Ron Unz doesn’t seem to grasp the concept of opportunity cost. If we really have any say in the matter, we’d be better off replicating earlier demographics; or not importing people at all, thus leaving more elbow room for current residents and more room and less traffic for our posterity.

    Steve,

    Please post the exercise that Hail (and snorlax) did on a different thread of taking the day’s headlines with the word “White” in them and replacing that word with the word “Jew”. (Exercise deserves a name of its own, by the way.)

    What results is rather shocking.

  8. Do I detect a trace of a smirk on this man?

    Also, I think the argument is that 99.99 percent of Mexican and Meso-American border crossers are not either guys who fool around with a gun they picked up or are spree killers. Furthermore, in a country of 330 million people, the number of people who perish at their hands is a drop-in-the-bucket compared to the number of white people who get away with disrespecting persons of color by smirking.

    No surprises here!

  11. Presumably he is what amounts to criminally insane. If he is an illegal alien he should be deported after he has served his sentence. If executed, his body should be shipped to Guatemala after the sentence is carried out. In the meantime, he should have Guatemalan consular access.

    It would be interesting to know exactly how he entered the United States, but at this point we don’t.

    Meanwhile, in other news a 21-year old former correctional officer trainee in Florida was arrested for the apparently random murder of 5 SunTrust Bank employees. However, having had dealings with incompetent SunTrust Bank employees myself, I wonder if there was more to it than that.

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6624915/Five-people-shot-dead-hostage-situation-gunman-opened-fire-inside-bank.html

    The interesting thing is that he must have undergone fairly stringent law enforcement and background checks before being enrolled as a trainee correctional officer without being detected as a potential mass murderer. Friends and family said that he was a completely normal young man (of course Adolph Hitler’s folks said that too).

    Young white men do seem to figure prominently in the profile of those who have a tendency to commit these kind of crimes, so this is not a job that only immigrants will do.

    The answer is probably mandatory military service and random foreign wars in parts where there are willing women, so that they can work the itchy trigger finger and testosterone blockages out of their system overseas.

    The difference is that this person’s crimes were preventable, or at least Americans could have been protected from them, by rational immigration laws and proper enforcement of existing laws, and a wall. We are not arguing that the deviance rate of US citizens is zero, but that for certain immigrant groups criminality is in fact higher—must be higher because crime is so much higher in their native countries—and we don’t need it. Among other complaints.

  16. There’s a problem with the proposed Kondo Amendment, asking people to look at a killer and ask if they spark joy. And I think Whiskey can explicate the problem further…

    As for this multiple murderer, fold him up into a box small enough to Fed-Ex down to Guatemala.

    I like Lucinda Williams, she’s peachy, when she’s not being an angry frump.

    If hectored by Lucinda Williams, I would tell her to get me a beer before she went to West Memphis or Slidell, and be quick about it. She might swing a guitar at me for that.

    I was going write a snarky comment about him doing the job Americans just won’t do, which is killing off white Americans, but thought better of it.

    I do wonder if he is getting support amongst some circles for this though.

    It’s not as crazy a thought as it once was, given what I have now seen on Twitter and the msm’s pass given to the black supremacists over the smiling MAGA high schooler.

    That was a household meme in the wren family home for quite a while, a year or two back.

    Applied to much more than junk around the house, it is often a useful tool for reevaluating habits, relationships, choices, etc.

    I don’t know if that part was in her book or not, but it is pretty funny when applied to many behaviors…

    Totally bizarre.

    In a jailhouse interview with the New York Daily News published shortly after the killing, Jackson said he hoped his attack would deter white women from entering romantic relationships with black men.

    “It’s well over 10 years that he’s been harboring these feelings of hate towards male blacks,” Assistant Police Chief William Aubry said at the time.

    The complaint further alleged that Jackson considered Caughman’s killing to be “practice” before he went to Times Square, where he planned to kill more black men.

    “Racist Thoughts at 3.” Somebody is having a laugh.

    Jackson told the Daily News he felt some regret after the attack, as he didn’t know Caughman was older. Instead, he told the publication, he would have preferred to kill “a young thug” or “a successful older black man” who was with blond women. He claims he had his first racist thoughts at age 3, ideals that later proliferated as he spent time on websites such as the Daily Stormer.

    Random sordid killing is “terrorism”.

    [Cyrus R. Vance Jr., the district attorney for Manhattan] said he would investigate the apparent unauthorized interview, the New York Post reported. However, he also called the plea — New York’s first prosecution under the “murder as a crime of terrorism” statute — a landmark conviction, the AP reported.

    This is not the great White Supremacist Defendant you are looking for.

  40. Peter Lorre–good one, Steve!

    “Hide me, Rick! Hide me!”

  41. Which cryin’ furloughed worker had the job duty to make sure the illegal alien murder suspect did not overstay his visa? Or, since he looks pretty young, which government worker had the responsibility to make sure that the murder suspect’s momma showed up for her asylum hearing after being released into the US interior to live with relatives since she had kids and, thus, could not be deported after an illegal border crossing? After some sausage-worthy dealmaking, furloughed, low-energy government workers will be right back at it, running off all the new employees who are not “culture fits,” remorselessly, with zero concern for how the disposed-of competition will pay their bills until they get another job and their first paycheck from that new job—a process that often takes well over a month. But their job-performance expectations will stay the same. Because US workplaces are all about the fact that most retained employees have kids—rather than about the quality of their work—government employees will never be called on it when illegal aliens run amok, murdering Americans.

  43. Canada last week deported William Shrubsall back to NY after he completed his sentence for a series of sex crimes in Halifax. Shrubsall , facing sex crime charges here, jumped bail, faked a suicide and fled to Canada. His crime here, when he was seventeen, he beat his mother to death with a baseball bat. A judge, convinced that the very bright young man was redeemable, granted him youthful offender status. Shrubsall was accept into U of Pennsylvania, where he was a near Haven Monahan. Fled to Canada, assumed fake identity and started his criminal career over at U of Halifax. See, Canada gets to deport scum, we don’t.

    NPR’s Moth storytelling program recently had a guy who was viciously attacked in his house in front of his kids by burglars who slipped in under a closing garage door. The lead-in is how he thinks his wife and video-camera-crazy neighbor are paranoid for taking precautions against crime. The conclusion is about how he still just cannot accept or refuses to accept that there are people in the bushes waiting to jump on you. He lived and lives in Los Angeles.
    Laugh points:
    He tells the burglars that he doesn’t own a gun. Surely this will appease them. They respond by bashing his head bloody with their gun.
    He tells the police. They investigate until they get bored, and then move on to whatever’s more recent. Lefties cannot grasp that defeating the most sophisticated policing systems in the world is as simple as anybody who is tribally-conscious keeing his mouth shut.
