Jurors decided there was too much reasonable doubt
Well, that's our justice system. The jury did the best they could with the
evidence presented. It was a weak case, and there was "reasonable"
doubt.That does not mean that Mr. Roman is innocent and did not kill
Deputy Fox, only that there is insufficient evidence to convict him of the
crime.Sadly, this is a crime that never should have happened, and
was totally preventable.Had Mr. Roman not been with the guy he now
blames as the killer, Deputy Fox would probably still be alive. The
Deseret News' affiliate KSL news previously reported: "...Roberto
Roman's background also includes the fact that he was deported from the
United States in 1998.Roman legally entered the United States in
1990, only to be deported eight years later following felony drug convictions.
Since then, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) says Roman has been
arrested twice for illegally re-entering the United States and federally
prosecuted once for the same offense."Protect our cops. Enforce
our immigration laws.
Law enforcement in the counties could avoid a lot of this if they would crack
down on the illegal aliens they know are in their jurisdiction. This man was/is
an illegal alien and this was known before the murder of Deputy Fox. Local
authorities are to intimidated to rid the criminal element from their counties.
The Millard County Sheriff should take some responsibility for this. The
"Firearm by a Restricted Person" Charge is because he is an illegal
alien from Mexico.
Justice has been served. But it does not bring back the dead.
