Elderly American facing charges while illegal alien criminals go free


In Colorado, we have a case where two illegal aliens with lengthy criminal records tried to victimize Robert Wallace, an 82 year old retiree, stealing his trailer from his own home and according to Mr. Wallace, trying to run him over in the process. Wallace fired two shots at the pair, striking one in the face. Both illegals were subsequently identified after the injured one was dropped off the hospital and they confessed to the attempted theft. But rather than prosecute the pair, or turn them over to ICE for deportation, the Jefferson County Prosecutor's Office not only let them go free again, but it turned around and filed Attempted First Degree Murder charges against Mr. Wallace!

Whole outrageous story here.
Sources say Torres and Cardona are believed to be in the country illegally and both have an arrest record. Cardona's record includes public fighting and numerous traffic offenses like driving without a license or insurance. Torres's record includes agricultural trespassing as well as a 2005 arrest for aggravated motor vehicle theft for which he was given a plea bargain to a lesser crime. Sources say Torres is also under investigation for being part of a major auto theft ring.
Yet it's Wallace, the American citizen victim of the robbery who is out on bond now. Torres and Cardona? They're just back out among us courtesy of a soft-on-crime DA who is clearly trying to pander to the growing pro-illegal voting bloc in Colorado.

What's next? The illegals filing a lawsuit against Mr. Wallace, aided by one of the many pro-illegal groups in Colorado? The Eric Holder Justice Department going after Mr. Wallace?

Seriously, this stuff has to stop and our government officials, from Jefferson County's District Attorney Scott Storey up to Eric Holder and Barack Obama, need to remember that they work to protect and serve US--the law-abiding Americans. They weren't elected to make life easier for criminals from other countries who are in our country in violation of our laws. If they won't do their job and protect us from the criminal invaders, we, the people, need to replace them with representatives who will.

If this offends or outrages you, please let your voice be heard.

Remember: Be civil.


  1. WTF??? Is this still America??? sigh...

  2. Not right now, but 2012's coming.

  3. As Arizona's SB1070 motivates illegals to go somewhere else, some of them will choose to move to other states rather than leave the US. This worsening of matters for our neighboring states, is an unfortunate but unavoidable side effect of the state-level legislation that was passed only because the federal government isn't doing it's job.
    Personally, I figure California is a lost cause. But not so Colorado -- but from what I've seen while visiting, you may have to expel Boulder.

  4. I blogged this too, both on mine and on the Reb. One of my commenters sent me a link. Apparently, this isn't the first time Storey has victimized senior citizens. I can't write to him. I can't possibly be civil.

    Outrageous.I politely email my displeasure on this case.

  6. They somehow turned the law on its head, letting two criminals loose and bringing charges against an innocent man defending himself against the two criminals.

    Is this a special type of legal system peculiar to Jefferson County and this DA’s Office? Sounds like the DA imported these laws from some foreign country, I don’t recognize this as being part of the American Legal Justice System.
