The only reason why I posted this article is because this man was convicted of killing a Houston police officer.  Only one person.  Maybe I have a sense of twisted sense of justice or something but I was under the impression that you had to kill at least two people to get the death penalty.   Anyway do you agree with the state of Texas decision? Personally I would have him extradited back to Mexico and be done with it.


Texas executes Mexican citizen Edgar Tamayo for killing Houston cop

Tamayo’s death by lethal execution moved forward despite outcries from the Mexican government and even a request from Secretary of State Kerry that Texas delay the punishment.

Edgar Tamayo was the first inmate executed in Texas so far this year and one of several Mexican inmates who attorneys and officials contend should have been given proper counsel.

A cop-killing Mexican man has been executed in Texas despite pressure from his home country to halt the punishment.

Edgar Tamayo, 46, was put to death by lethal injection Wednesday night for the shooting of Houston cop Guy Gaddis, 24, in Jan. 1994.

Asked by a warden if he had a final statement, Tamayo mumbled “no” and shook his head. 

He took a few breaths as the deadly dose of pentobarbital began taking effect. He then made one slightly audible snore before all movement stopped. He was pronounced dead 17 minutes after the drug was administered, at 9:32 p.m. CST.

The execution at the Texas State Penitentiary at Huntsville was delayed by three hours while the Supreme Court considered — and rejected — last-minute appeals of Tamayo’s case.

Tamayo’s attorney and the Mexican government argued that Tamayo’s case was tainted because he wasn’t informed, under an international agreement, that he could get legal help from the Mexican consulate after his arrest in the officer’s slaying.

Attorneys also unsuccessfully argued that Tamayo was mentally impaired, making him ineligible for capital punishment.

Several dozen police officers and other supporters of Gaddis revved their motorcycles before witnesses were allowed into the death chamber. Tamayo called no one to witness his death.

He avoided eye contact with Gaddis’ mother, two brothers and two other relatives who watched the grim proceeding through a window.

“He’s a coward, just like when he shot my brother in the back of the head, and he died a coward,” Glen Gaddis said.

The execution was the first of the year in Texas, which consistently kills the highest number of inmates of any state. Sixteen prisoners were executed in Texas last year.

“It doesn’t matter where you’re from,” said Lucy Nashed, spokeswoman for Gov. Rick Perry. “If you commit a despicable crime like this in Texas, you are subject to our state laws, including a fair trial by jury and the ultimate penalty.”

Mexico had said it “strongly opposed” the execution.

Gaddis, who had been on the force for two years, was driving Tamayo and another man from a robbery scene when the officer was shot three times in the head and neck with a pistol Tamayo had concealed in his pants. 

The car crashed, and Tamayo fled on foot but was captured a few blocks away, still in handcuffs, carrying the robbery victim’s watch and wearing the victim’s necklace.

Secretary of State Kerry previously asked Texas Attorney General Abbott to delay Tamayo’s punishment, saying it “could impact the way American citizens are treated in other countries.” The State Department repeated that stance earlier Wednesday but had no immediate comment following the execution.

Tamayo was in the U.S. illegally at the time of the murder and had a criminal record in California, where he had served time for robbery and was paroled, according to prison records.

Yes, I agree with the decision.

Quote but I was under the impression that you had to kill at least two people to get the death penalty.

I will readily the thought process on what qualifies for the death penalty is way left.  But sometimes I hear where people serve years behind bars for murder.  Granted it is in different states.

no ma'am. in our state, you kill an on-duty officer of the law, it's a capital offense; the death penalty is automatically on the table when you're charged and tried. and i'm fine with the death penalty. yadda yadda yadda not a deterrent blah blah blah-- i'm still fine with it. 

as they were the ones wronged, i actually think it should be the family's call. also, don't commit crimes in a country that doesn't belong to you. keep that sh!t on your home soil. my only regret is the cost of housing people for ___ years before they are executed.
