Honduran Kills Child with Axe

Brenda Walker:

When the police approached the crime scene, Cabrera Borjas fled to a nearby apartment complex. After he broke an officer’s arm by throwing a tire iron (or maybe a “rimmed tire” — accounts differ) and made threats with an iron pipe, the officer shot and killed him.

Since the accused killer is dead, there will be no trial to remind the public that illegal immigration is not a victimless crime — assuming Santos Cabrera Borjas was indeed an illegal entrant. The authorities may not pursue that detail, wishing to forget the whole sordid thing.

However, the killer’s family already has a lawyer making “police brutality” and “wrongful death” noises, so the ugliness may continue.
