Lin, does it matter? Is he less villainous or do we take fewer precautions if he’s “legal”?

Kathleen it does matter because if he is he should not be in this country.

So Pete, how? A thief is a thief; an indecent exposure is an indecent exposure; and so on. Citizen or not, I want them apprehended and tried, and incarcerated and/or deported, depending on the applicable legal procedures. The difference is in where they end up, not whether they are a legal resident.

Kathleen, you have no idea what is going on with illegals in this town. It is beyond belief. Talk to a cop and they will tell you. They are just as disgusted as everyone else is. You love these illegals then let a couple stay at your place.

Pete, I’m talking about a criminal, any criminal. I don’t think the police will ignore a citizen murderer to capture an undocumented thief. The broader question of undocumented persons is a different problem/discussion.

Kathleen, our police and the DA are complicent in this activity. The police have been instructed to stand down and the DA is pleading violent felonies down to misdeamenors in order to avoid bad publicity. We are bringing this on ourselves.

Did this guy say why he did it? I’m curious how much of this is mental illness and how much is just being disgusting. It’s always good to know which institution he needs to be locked away in for a long long time.

If he is illegal, us taxpayers pay to house, feed and clothe him in jail or deport him too? At the same time, many of our citizens like seniors and families are struggling. Think of the money and resources going to illegals in these types of cases instead of social services for legal immigrants and citizens. In any case, the guy is a pervert and again, if undocumented, should be in a Peru jail. But Im sure with the liberal sanctuary state, he will make his way back in.

The immigration question is not relevant to this case. Apart from his name, there is no indication that he was born anywhere but the USA, still less that he is an illegal immigrant. Police seem to have had no difficulty finding local addresses of his relatives, even before they located and arrested him, which indicates that he had no need to live 'under the radar' because of his immigration status.

In answer to Grumpy's question, apart from the stripping off, there does't really seem to be a pattern to this man's activities. He seems to have made no attempt to conceal his unusual tattoo. And, once arrested, he readily admitted not only to the crimes in question, but to numerous others. I'd say that it all points unquestionably to a serious and escalating mental health issue, not simple perverted behavior, from which he should, or could, refrain.

As well as giving his victims greater peace of mind, I hope that the alleged perpetrator's arrest will result in his obtaining the professional medical help that he clearly needs.

Kathleen said “The difference is in where they end up, not whether they are a legal resident”. Kathleen, please explain this psycho-babble to me. If he is illegal, why should I as a taxpayer pay for rehab, housing, food, court proceedings, etc. so it would apoear important to know where he ends up—either remaining here or deported. I know, its the PC decent and caring thing to do to help him so keep him here even if he has not paid taxes into the system for years, broke law to enter the USA, and now our strained social services are less for legal residents. I get too tired of people who are isolated affluent suburbanites thinking they know best.

He was born in Santa Clara, CA., on Dec. 5th, 1986, so he was born in this country. It's amazing how folks get off on an unrelated tangent. Someone should of given him the address to one of those Asian Massage Parlors.

David,
“Citizen or not, I want them apprehended and tried, and incarcerated and/or deported, depending on the applicable legal procedures.” It helps not to leave off that context.

Why should you pay, or me or anyone else? Turns out, as DyR points out, that this person appears to be a citizen. But any crime has due process. There are many things I don’t like paying for, from here to Sacramento and on to D.C. From overpriced hammers to pretty new Air Force One planes. Unless we change it (and for some things I’d be glad to), it’s what we signed up for and remains status quo every time we vote.
