Kudos to the Editors for making the correction to the story. While it certainly appears that Jose Guerena’s family is involved in some shady business, that did not deprive him of the right to a jury trial rather than an execution. It is my belief that he never took his weapon off of safe because he realized that the men at his front door were indeed LEOs and not a home invasion team.The victim had been trained to be respective of authority and that became the cause of his demise. The fact that the PCSD denied him medical attention would support the theory that they needed to make sure that he never lived to testify in his own behalf. If this murder had occurred in El Salvador or Nicaragua, no one would raise an eyebrow. Here in the USA, it should make every civilian’s hair stand on end. Who’s next? You, me someone’s grandmother. Stay tuned.
