Sen. Brown To Ecuador: Return Murder Suspect

BOSTON (AP) — Sen. Scott Brown is joining Plymouth County District Attorney Timothy Cruz in calling on Ecuador to return a man to the U.S. to face double murder charges.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Carl Stevens reports

Luis Guaman is accused of bludgeoning to death his housemate, 25-year-old Maria Avelina Palaguachi-Cela of Brockton and her 2-year-old son Brian in February 2011, then dumping their bodies in a trash container.

Brown sent a letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton asking for help. Brown said the U.S. should reconsider foreign aid to Ecuador.

Brown said he’s already worked all other diplomatic channels available to him.

Authorities say Guaman fled to his native Ecuador where he only faces charges of using a false passport.

The United States has an extradition treaty with Ecuador, but its constitution prohibits the country from sending citizens abroad for prosecution.

    The amazing part is that Guaman was not only in this country illegally but he was able to get OUT of this country to avoid prosecution.The Feds need to adopt the Arizona law and check everyone’s ID.Instead,the Injustice Department under Eric Noholder is sueing Arizona because that state is doing the enforcement that the Feds have neither the ability nor the will to do.It’s time for EVERYONE to have an ID whether for checking immigration status or voting.As for the Socialist (D) Party; I don’t buy this ‘disenfranchised’BS.A background check on an individual costs $7. Incarceration costs $166/day. They need ID to get EBT cards,right? Use $25 of that money for an ID at the Registry instead of cash for lottery tickets,casino,nail salon,tatoo parlor. Stop voting in these morons that want to give away your hard-earned pay to those who won’t work for it.
