This story would have had a different ending if it had played out in San Antonio or Houston. The Webb County (Laredo) District Attorney's office doesn't have the capability to handle these type of cases correctly---these two clowns should be on Death Row now.

They were extradited from Mexico, and even though they are U.S. citizens, a "no-kill order" (i.e., agreement not to seek the death penalty) would probably have been part of the agreement. Texans may still be barbaric enough to allow for state-sanctioned murder, but Mexico gave it up long ago.

*+Texans may still be barbaric enough to allow for state-sanctioned murder, but Mexico gave it up long ago+*

Spare me the noble, enlightened Mexico stuff, Rich. Mexico's criminal justice system allows it's citizens to butcher each other with impunity in medieval, sadistic fashion or extra-judicially executes a select few while they are in jail. I can't imagine many "Texans" would view that as a less "barbaric", morally superior system that we should adopt.

And Cardona was not extradited---he cut a traditional deal where the DA got his testimony against some smaller fish in the pond. The State got a lot less than they gave away. Reta was extradited so you are correct--- he was not subject to capital punishment.

Altrhabana, might I be so bold as to add a sizable "amen" to your statement. The only thing barbaric in TX is the justice system that takes 10-15-20 years to do the deed. I'm sure that murder victims and their families would have loved to had those years to share rather than grieve.
