Sgt. Cory Wride was 'one of those good guys,' brother-in-law says
Thank you to our wonderful legal system that lets a man convicted of attempted
murder out after 4 years - unbelievable, and now a wonderful policeman has been
killed and another wounded by this guy. Forget fixing problems in the Middle
East, we have problems right here with crime that we turn a blind eye to.
It's time like this that you wonder why we have to try to "heal" a
shooting suspect that apparently killed an officer and critically wounded
another. It would be tough to be a surgeon knowing that you're helping to
"fix" up a cop killer. I'm glad that I don't have to worry
about this. I was deeply saddened to hear about the whole incident on the radio
yesterday. My condolences and prayers go out to the family.
@MJBYou heal them to bring them to justice... So he can rot in prison and
be miserable for the rest of his life.
The Tribune reports:"According to a recent hearing results report
issued by the Utah Board of Pardons, Garcia-Juaregui was on parole. His case was
reviewed in December and again on Jan. 21. A notation on his case says he was
"not to remain in or enter the United States illegally.""Another case where if we enforced our immigration laws our crime rate would be
lower. And, a wonderful Utah law enforcement officer, father of five, would be
alive. How many citizens have to die at the hands of illegals before we take
immigration violations seriously?Legal immigrants are welcome, but
illegal actions are just that, and should not be tolerated, whether it is
breaking immigration laws, or killing cops, or attempting to murder other
people. Enforce all our laws and make our country safe. And, save
the lives of our cops!
What a senseless tragedy.
My heart is saddened to read about this.My head says those who
approved the "plea bargain" a few years ago need to suffer some remorse
and hopefully those attorneys and the judge who agreed to that deal will now
develop the resolve to actually invoke justice on those misfits who do these
terrible, horrific crimes against society and individuals. There ought to be
justice in this country; it was not meted out last time, maybe it will be this
Other sources say Jose Angel Garcia-Juaregui has passed away. "A
notation on his case says he was "not to remain in or enter the United
States illegally."Why didn't Ice put a hold on him if he
was here illegally? Isn't that Obama's policy, to remove dangerous
It is being reported that the suspect has died from his injuries
Don't worry DN Subscriber, this dude won't ever bother anyone ever
Guns don't kill people. Lunatics with guns kill people...
In this sad day and age of such callous, violent criminals -- and high-powered
weapons/ammo, I DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHY our police officers' vehicles are not
"hardened" (bulletproof)?!?As a society, we have GOT to
protect our law enforcement personnel much, much better. Our legislators MUST
give better funding to police agencies to give more protective gear and vehicles
to our officers!! God bless Officer Wride and his family, and all
the peace officers affected by this horrible tragedy.
Karma is perhaps the only real form of justice in the universe. I love Karma.
"You heal them to bring them to justice... So he can rot in prison and be
miserable for the rest of his life." - Mike in SandyFrankly, I
don't want to have to pay for the upkeep and support of people who commit
these types of heinous crimes. Going to prison isn't the back breaking,
isolated confinement, ball and chain penalty most people imagine.How
do I know that? I worked as a corrections officer for the State of Utah when I
lived in Salt Lake and spent a good portion of my time at the state prison.
Tough situation for everyone involved. This incident needs to be looked at very
closely for all of the obvious parameters involved. Since he was wanted, there
had to be people who knew and now they should be looked at with charges at
aiding and abetting. From every indication, the girl did not appear to be too
upset about the incident. The car jackings are very disturbing. A previous
comment states that he should have been deported. The nature of crime is also
quite disturbing. Because of recent legal issues, it appears that the state of
Utah is a target for a package of laws aimed at reforming their conservative
value system. You have to look at this shooting of the officer as an evil act of
"behavior modification". The shooter and the girl are both harbingers of
a liberated society.
Thankfully this Mr. Jaregui received injuries inconsistent with life. God needed
to have a conversation with this young man. Thanks to the Juab County Deputies
for arranging that meeting. May God bless and grant peace to the families of
Sgt. Wride and Deputy Sherwood and to the Utah County Sheriff's Office
Sheriff Tracy reported that Jose Angel Garcia-Juaregui was in the country
legally. Since he died from his gunshot wounds, I doubt that we will be able to
find the truth about that. The other Salt Lake daily news paper reported that
there was a notation in his case file which said he was "not to remain in or
enter the United States illegally." That appears to be a voluntary deport
order, which was obviously ignored, making him illegal. He may have been in the
US legally prior to the stabbing which sent him to prison, but ignoring the
deportation order makes him an illegal alien. Since he will not go to jail,
determining the truth will be difficult, since the media is not likely to
If Garcia-Juaregui was a U.S. citizen, why was he issued a deportation order?
If Garcia-Juaregui was a foreign national in the country legally who
failed to comply with a deportation order, why was he referred to as a U.S.
citizen? It doesn't add up.
