From ESPN:

Dominican Republic Attorney General: Ortiz shooting case of mistaken identity
play
8:05 PM PT
Associated Press

SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic — Former Red Sox slugger David Ortiz was shot in the back by a gunman who mistook him for the real target, another man who was seated at the same table at an outdoor cafe, Dominican officials said Wednesday.

The Dominican Republic’s attorney general and the national police director told reporters that the attempted murder was ordered from the United States by Victor Hugo Gomez, an associate of Mexico’s Gulf Cartel. They said Gomez had hired a gang of killers to eliminate his cousin, whom Gomez suspected of turning him in to Dominican drug investigators in 2011.

… Ortiz remains hospitalized in Boston, where doctors have upgraded his condition from guarded to good.

… Rodriguez and Bautista said the case of mistaken identity began when one of the accomplices snapped a blurry photo of Fernandez seated at the Dial Bar and Lounge in an upscale section of Santo Domingo. In the photo, a white freezer obscures Fernandez’s lower body, making it look like he was wearing white pants when, in fact, he was wearing black pants, officials said….

Nonetheless, many Dominicans were skeptical that their country’s most famous person, a 6-foot, 3-inch man weighing around 250 pounds, could be mistaken for Fernandez, who appeared to be far smaller with a lighter complexion in a photo provided by authorities.

“He is big. He likes to attract attention,” said Daniel Pou, an independent consultant on public security. “He wears a lot of jewelry. He’s flashy all around.”

The alleged shooter is a skinny, tattooed 25-year-old whom U.S. prosecutors said is wanted on armed robbery and gun charges in New Jersey. His driver was captured immediately after the shooting when he fell off the motorcycle he was trying to use to escape.

… Ferreyra told reporters from the window of a jail cell this week that he did not mean to shoot Ortiz, but fired at him in confusion over his clothing.

Gomez, the alleged mastermind, is believed to be in the United States and is being sought by the Drug Enforcement Administration …

    From the United States.

    We’d all be less miserable if Gomez and those like him hadn’t come to the United States in the first place. If only there were an institution who could prevent those sort of thing.

    Wonder if he went to any cockfights when he was down there. Big sport on the island, even if Dominicans and Haitians don’t get along, they both enjoy it.

  17. The alleged shooter is a skinny, tattooed 25-year-old whom U.S. prosecutors said is wanted on armed robbery and gun charges in New Jersey.

    All criminals are tattooed, often on their faces, just so people can be sure that they are criminals, however not all tattooed people are criminals–stupid, but not criminals–so although it cannot be proved that tattooing causes crime, there is clearly a statistical relationship.

    If the tattooing looks amateurish, and spells out something like ” fuck da cops” across the fingers, it is even more indicative of criminality (and stupidity).

    It would not be a bad idea, since criminals like tattoos, for it to be made mandatory for criminals to have “convicted felon” tattooed on their foreheads, and their Department of Corrections number on the ears.

    The US does actually deport substantial numbers of Dominican criminals back to Hispaniola, but they come in waves, and many of them are actually born in the US.

    When they are returned to the Dominican Republic, they cause a lot of problems there too.

    although, in turn, the Dominicans deport a lot of Haitians back to Haiti.

    Trump and the Republican Party are doing everything in their power to flood the United States with Third Worlders and Haitians and Dominicans and every other Third World rathole around the world.

    Mass legal immigration and illegal immigration are bringing crime, infectious diseases, multicultural mayhem and White Genocide to the USA.

    Trump and the Republican Party are pushing mass legal immigration and illegal immigration.

    Dominicans have low level scams and medium level scams. The JEW/WASP ruling class of the American Empire likes to keep the high level scams all to themselves.

    The Dominicans don’t much like the Haitians, and the Dominicans have walls and fences to keep the African Haitians on their side of the island. Some Dominicans are damn smart and they are Spaniards or Spaniard Mestizos.

    Got to give some of the Dominicans credit for brains. Dominicans are just not as sneaky at ripping off the United States government as the JEW/WASP ruling class is.

    Dominicans sometimes use their smarts to clam rake loot out of Medicare.

    Good point. The Daily Mail published pictures of the bill of sale and of the check signed by David Ortiz (presumably not fake documents). So what is really going on here? Messing the with the girlfriend, or some kind of money laundering transaction?

    The girl who is alleged to be the mistress looks like a gargoyle.

  20. It is easy to make mistakes of this kind.

    Donald Trump has been most magnanimous in agreeing that the Iranians made a whopping mistake when they thought a drone was in their airspace and shot it down.

    Just the same way the Iranians accepted that the US had made an awful mistake when the USS Vincennes shot down an Iranian passenger airliner flight 655 in exactly the same area in 1988.

    You just have to be so careful when you are operating an anti-aircraft gun and accidents will happen.

    It was just one of those things.

    The late Greg Giraldo put it best:

    Masterminds are another word that comes up all the time.
    You keep hearing about these terrorists masterminds that get killed in the middle east.
    Terrorists masterminds.
    Mastermind is sort of a lofty way to describe what these guys do, don’t you think?
    They’re not masterminds.

    And yet, who are an order of magnitude above the Haitians.

    “Everyone around the world is the same” or “There’s only one race, the human race!” have to be the dumbest slogans of all time.

  23. @Jonathan Mason

    That 2nd video had me thinking those Dominicans pretty smart folks** and …

    if we simply rounded up those protesting the deportation of Haitians in Miami and deported them … we could be “winning!” too.

    ** Note: what the very sane and sensible immigration regimes of even low IQ, mid-income nations makes clear is just how nasty and hostile to the American people ruling “elites” in the US are.

    There’s just no way to understate the level of hate involved in what they’ve imposed.

    Maybe the gangs have a policy of not telling the hitpersons the race of the target so as not to appear racist.

    My relative is in a CA prison and I asked him how many of the other inmates have tattoos. He said 100% minus himself. The only person in an entire prison without ink.

    It helps the cops, actually. They photograph and catalog their tattoos and it helps with IDing the guys later on. You’d think the criminals would realize this.

  30. @Jonathan Mason

    Meh, not even as good as your average CA suburb.

    The poor fellows are not well-endowed with thinking skills. However, gang leaders in prison tend to be less heavily tattooed and usually do not have tattoos on their faces, indicating that they have prepared themselves for leadership positions within the criminal community.

    When I worked in a prison I remember a pale little red-haired fellow whose face was completely tattoo-free (don’t remember his arms) as a New Gain. Six months later his entire face was covered with ugly ballpoint blue graffiti. When asked what the hell he was going to do at EOS (End Of Sentence), he explained that he was going to seek employment as a tattoo artist. Guffaws all round.

    Yep, just like this Mestizo. For a moment I could have sworn he was one of the guys I see loitering around the edge of the parking at my Home Depot.

    Or maybe I have him confused with his almost as famous son pictured with him here.

    Ha! I also worked in a prison for a while. We had one inmate, a local white kid with a shaved head, who was in for bank robbery. He had a folder with the evidence from his trial in his cell with pretty good pictures of him during the commission of the crime from the bank’s cameras-same shaved head, but one difference-in prison he had a large face tattoo, but not in the pictures. Of course, he got it afterwards, but that was his proof that it wasn’t him. As you said, not gifted in the thinking department.

    It’s a spoken word piece like “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised” by Gil Scott-Heron.
