This is my gfs Facebook but I was his cellmate for a couple months in Jeffco. He didn't seem like a bad guy and regularly read his Spanish bible and drew great art. He also shared his commissary with me a white boy and told me he didn't do it and turned himself in because someone told him he was on the fbi ' s most wanted list. He's been in jail over a year already and his case is set for trial in September. I just don't get why he would turn himself in if guilty. He just said he did construction and talked about the poverty that has plagued El Salvador since the government there started using us dollars. Not a dumb or bad guy at all and even if he did kill a child rapist how does this qualify him for fbi's Most wanted. Conspiracy much???

If this guy were White, the gun-loon rightwingnuts and teabaggers would be cheering his vigilante justice upon a child-molesting rapist lowlife criminal.
