"Unbelievable"

We would like to share the outrage of one of our readers with regards to the ramifications that drug money has on our justice system in the U.S.

Borderland Beat received this e-mail messsage last night:.

“I live in Laredo, Tx. Yesterday a local judge granted a $1.25 million bond for Joseph Allen Garcia... an alleged Zeta member who is accused of multiple murders among other things; who was also featuered on America's Most Wanted and dubbed Billy the Kid for running from the law on various occasions; who has always been allowed to be bonded out of jail beacause his attorney has proved he is worth that much... excuse me but WTF??? Albeit, if he is worth that much, the money is dirty drug money. There are some very shady things going on in our own backyard and our mayor and governor and President are worried about Mexico and the violence and CORRUPTION over there?! This really makes no sense... why would they allow someone so dangerous to roam our streets!? I want those people that allowed this to happen to get the heat they deserve. I want this story to get the national attention it deserves. Why? Everybody has their noses dipped in Mexico's business, at their inability to stop this war... while here in my hometown (a river away from Mexico) our justice system has just let loose into our community a very dangerous individual who had been wanted for a very long time... an alleged Zeta.”

Garcia was bonded out of the Webb County jail Monday afternoon after his attorney, former judge Manuel Flores, posted a surety bond that required he show proof that he is worth double the amount of his client’s high bond amount.

“The county attorney and bail bond board reviewed all the paperwork,” said Jose “Pepe” Salinas, Webb County jail commander.

“He (Flores) had to show proof he was (worth) over $3 million... it’s one of those cases where you have to go according to the law…He met all the requirements.”

Garcia had previously posted bond for murder, attempted murder and possession of drugs but became a fugitive after he failed to appear at a court hearing in 2005. He was captured in Reynosa, Mexico, in September 2010 and was expelled to the U.S where he was taken into custody.

Authorities React to Former Zeta being Released
By KGNS News

Story Created: Feb 15, 2011 at 10:02 PM CST

As the violence continues in Mexico, the fallout continues here in Laredo after one of this countries most notorious fugitives is caught, then released on bail. Local law enforcement is hoping the man they have pursued for so long can still be brought to justice. Patrick Nelson reports

Back in September of 2010, Joseph Allen Garcia was returned to the United States to face justice for the murder of two individuals and four aggravated assaults with a deadly weapon. After five years of searching for the fugitive Laredo law enforcement finally had one of the most wanted men in the country behind bars set to face trial. But on Monday Judge Elma Salinas Ender granted Garcia bail set at $1.25 million.

"We respect her findings. Again its unprecedented that somebody makes bond on this kind of money, but they were able to put together the resources to get him out."

Much to their dismay Webb County law enforcement officers watched Garcia, as he was set free Monday night. A man they worked so hard to put behind bars.

"(Is it a little frustrating to know he was able to get bond?) "We are just following the law and that is all we can do at this time."

Now that Garcia is free law enforcement hopes the judicial system has done enough to keep Garcia in town.

"We put an ankle monitor on him he's supposed to call every day so we'll be keeping close tabs on his security."

"You know he has the opportunity to run. But it will be the biggest mistake of his life because we have the contacts and resources to find him and it will cost his attorney 1.25 million."

Patrick Nelson, Laredo’s pro 8 news.

According to the district attorney Garcia is currently placed under home confinement with a GPS monitor. Garcia is required to report to pre-trial services and contact law enforcement daily. Judge Elma Salinas Ender says she has no comment on granting Garcia bond because it is an ongoing investigation. It was the judge’s sole discretion as to what bond to set or whether to grant bond at all. Again, Garcia avoided the authorities for approximately five years and was even featured on Americas Most Wanted. In this case they say he's not considered a flight risk.

  2. This piece of shit is not worth the pen he used to sing out with let alone any actual money. I hope his attorney gets disbarred and incarcerated when he does run.

  9. Wow, unbelivable and outrageous! So he also did not have to provide the SOURCE of such income? I mean as a FUGITIVE what kind of job description would generate such "worth"??

    He will probably end up dead, well not him, you know how they do it, kill any indigent or someone who they know won't be claimed and make him "look" like Garcia, that way the media, not law enforcement, gets off his back...

  10. His lawyer is a flaming idiot liberal!!
    But as for the bond, well he met the amount so what is there to be mad at? Other than the Judge could have not set a bond amount or set a higher one, but they too have to follow rules and laws. I don't see the outrage....

    Instead they should have executed this douche bag during his capture.
    Hopefully CDG catches him while he is out.

  11. as long as this doggy wears his GPS collar ,he is not gonna go anywhere...

    unless he wants to lead the cops to all his buddys...

    he knows that...
    his buddys know that ...

    what is he gonna do run to mexico ..where he can be extorted for the remainder of his money

    or as a fugitive who has jumped bail have the rest of his money seized ,,,no doubt kept in an American bank...
    this fat fuck is done
    we are a nation of laws ..and the wheels turn slow ..but when they do lock this bigboy up..he will be home for a while

    i personally think he should just be drowned in a toilet ...

    unnhhhh...ahhhh....phew!!! ..that stinks..but a hungry fly will love it

  12. Hahahahaha, yeah, because nobody is able to beat an ankle monitor, right brito. It's a seriously outdated piece of equipment that has many flaws that are easily able to be exploited. You might as well put him in a prison in tamaulipas if you think an ankle monitor is gonna keep him from running.

  13. You know, years ago I bought a house in McAllen and borrowed money from a "loan shark" to help on the down payment, which cost me a damn vehicle in the long run cause of his high interest rate, but anyway, upon signing for that nice house, I had to prove where i got that money, plus monies I did actually borrow from my mom too. And also she had to prove where she got the money! What I am saying is that it was hell proving where my "little" money came from and how it was made and then this asshole killer just shows he has "double the amount of his bond!" It took weeks to prove where I got the cash but he just showed it in a bank account and whoosh, he's out! Make him show how and where he got that damn $3 million!! I don't feel bad saying I hope he never makes it back into court!!! He needs to get the same treatment that he did to the other people he killed! No love loss here!!! Unfucking believable is the only way to describe it!

  14. I remember when this guy got caught and BB ran an article on him... Shows corruption has reached some high levels on the U.S. side... U.S. is usually better and keeping this sort of stuff out of the spotlight.

  15. Mexican judge,Mexican defendant,Mexican lawyer, money,The justice system all along the Tex/Mex border is another example of Mexicans milking the system just like they do in Mexico. Almost all the elected officials within 100 miles of the river are now Mexican,juries are Mexican,prosecutors,cops,judges, mayors,county commisioners,etc. IT is also a fact that corruption of elected officials/abuse of power is More common in Latin culture. So what is the big surprise! Many major ins cos pulled out of the valley and border areas the jury verdicts were sky high bleading the gringo.

  20. Gerardo, why add that word 'drug' in?

    'We would like to share the outrage of one of our readers with regards to the ramifications that drug money has on our justice system in the U.S.'

    Are the effects of all that other money (non drug) on our Criminally Unjust System somehow OK then?

  21. former judge flores, is he the one who's son was involved in the smiley murder in the 90's...and got off basically free???

  22. "Gerardo, why add that word 'drug' in?"

    Well Neto, whats the title of the blog?

    Borderland Beat: reporting on the Mexican cartel DRUG war.

    Anyhow, illict enrichment in Los Dos Laredos is derived mainly from all facets of drug trafficking.

  23. This should become a high-profile case of flaws in our justice system. The "b" judge should have tagged him as a flight risk and said NO BAIL. PERIOD. But Money was involved...so what??

    10% on 1.25 mil is what $125,000 dollars put up for bail. And I agree, we should be more scrupulous about iquiring where this good-for-nothing criminal gets his money. Two year work history--just like for morgages.

    And ankle bracelets aren't worth a damn if a criminal wants to run. Don't you think some group would harbor him?

    Hopefully in America we are still free enough to speak, print, and expose these people...and corruption where it exists...so as not to have this become the norm.

    Let me know if he shows up for his next hearing.

  24. I hope he shows up all right, in a pine box!

  26. El_Regio... I believe the outrage is because this little turd got away from the hands of the law... not once, not twice, not even thrice... but many times... Once they were staking out his hiding place... he got a call from God knows who that alerted him... and before they could even kick open the front door... he was gone!! Probably crossing the border by then! This is a slap in the face to our justice system... a slap in the face to us citizens of Laredo! And the incompetent judge still has the cajones to say he is not a flight risk?? excuse me? Maybe he added the couple keys of coke he's got stashed somewhere to his assets? And an ankle monitor? Really?? My heroin addicted uncle used to take his off almost daily to go get his fix, of course until he was caught. This gets me to thinking... if they catch el Chapo... can they set a $500 Million bond on him because he is worth twice as much?? After all... they only have "allegations" against him... he said... she said... i really doubt they have "hard, factual" evidence that "proves beyond a doubt" that he's guilty? Dang, let's just hope he's not caught here in Laredo!

  28. Gerardo, I just don't know why we should get all so upset about the drug money crudding up the US Legal System while not giving a damn much about how ALL Big Money (mainly big corporate money)in the US is doing that. That was my point.

    During the OJ trial all the black community was upset because of the thought that Heavy Money buys 'justice' in the US but only you when one was White. When he got off, almost ALL the Whites got into a gigantic huff because Big Money got OJ off, when all seemed well aware of what a criminal the guy had become.

    Let's face it, money makes one set of supposed justice given out wildly and freely when it is purchased big, and a system that doles out liberty in the tiniest, most stingy doses for those without the $$$$$$$$$$$$ So why get all surprised and shocked by the Laredo stuff? Kind of par for the course, is it not? The title of this blog BB has little to do with my reaction to this 'news' about Joseph Allen Garcia not being much to get ruffled about all alone.

  31. @Ernest1
    OJ was not part of a vicious drug gang made up of thousands of ex-military men that is wreaking havoc in Mexico! It is not so much about the $$$ infiltrating the U.S. justice system, but how dangerous this guy is to society. To their society, our society, any society. This incident actually brings light to what many people who live along the border were already gossiping and murmuring... the gangs have slowly crept into the U.S. and have begun taking over the system as they have in Mexico. This ultra-violent gang will slowly but surely take over our cities and states if they're let. $$ is $$ and when you have it... skin is no longer an issue... and you have privileges that regular folks don't... which include evading justice. It is outrageous that a judge so close to the border, who perfectly knows how dangerous these people are, would allow one of them to walk out of her courtroom. It is not so much the $$ It is the notoriety of this man's brother's who will NOT hesitate to kill a man and his child and his woman. The guilty, the innocent, the old and the young... are all equal bait for these predators. And 1 roaming our cities is 1 too many.

  32. Judge Senora Salinas lets him go for a measly million bucks, and maybe a little mordida in her pocket? That's pocket change to some of these guys, he would have to pay that to his lawyer anyways by the time he is done all the trails, and then still serve time. If he disappears now, he gets off cheap. Consider Chapo paying 2 million to get out of jail, a good investment, he makes it back now in a day

  33. Re: Manuel Flores one: he is no longer a judge, he was finally voted out. And two: yes that was his son that gave a ride to two murderers to the scene of the murder and gave them the axe they killed with and was never charged with anything.

    And re: Judge Ender: Laredo is still a small town and I would not judge her unless I was walking in her shoes. If someone of that nature came before me as a sitting judge and my family was threatened I don't know that I would act any different ...and I'm not saying that's what happened but ... use your own imagination.
    They should bring in outside judges for cases like these. IMHO
