Bampumim Teixeira, an immigrant from Africa, recently murdered two doctors in cold blood—he broke into their home, and slit their throats.
What’s worse, however, is that Teixeira has a history of committing crimes—specifically bank robberies. He was charged with robbing not one, but two banks, on two separate occasions, and received just 364 days in jail.
The judge who gave him this sentence, believed to be the pro-immigrant Lisa Grant, did it so that he could not be deported. US law states that if an immigrant is convicted for over one year, he or she may be deported…hence the sentence being just one day short of a year.
According to Daily Caller:
“An immigrant charged Monday with the grisly murder of two Boston doctors reportedly had years earlier burglarized the same bank on two separate occasions and received 364 in jail days as a result — a sentence just one day short of legally justifying his deportation.”
“The judge for the prior cases — believed to be Associate Justice Lisa Grant — sentenced Teixeira to 364 days following a pair of burglaries at the same bank in 2014 and 2016, according to the Boston Herald.
“Massachusetts state law mandates that burglary with a sentence of at least 1 year leads to deportation of an immigrant, or at least substantially increases chances of immigration status review.”
“Jake Wark, the spokesman for Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office, told The Daily Caller News Foundation that he is fairly certain that Judge Lisa Grant presided over Teixeira’s criminal case in 2016, but he did not specify which justice, an important distinction since there are twojudges named Lisa Grant in the Boston municipal court system.”
Coincidentally, the same judge also released a 32-year old Uber driver who was charged with raping an incapacitated, drunk passenger—many conservatives are asking why this woman is still in office, when her decision to give Teixeira such a light sentence led to the deaths of two innocent doctors.
The Boston Globe reports that Teixiera worked as a security officer in the same complex that he robbed, which allowed him to bypass some of the security systems. After breaking into the doctors’ $1.9 million condominium, he supposedly bound the two doctors limbs with rope, slit their necks, and filled a bag with jewelry.
“Police discovered the backpack inside the door to the $1.9 million condominium unit after police shot and subdued Bampumim Teixeira there, prosecutors said. He was wearing black clothing and dark-colored gloves, authorities said.”
“Teixeira, 30, was ordered held without bail after pleading not guilty to killing the doctors — Lina Bolaños, 38, and Richard Field, 50 — whose bodies were discovered bound and whose throats had been cut, according to authorities and information provided to the Globe.”
Fortunately, police were able to shoot the man down, preventing him from escaping and doing any further harm. He now resides in an undisclosed hospital.
“Pappas said during the arraignment that gunfire erupted when one of the officers encountered Teixeira. The suspect was shot in his abdomen, leg, and left hand before police took him into custody outside the unit, authorities said.”
Thankfully no officers were injured, but this violent criminal still claims he’s innocent—hopefully the judge will see otherwise, and give the two dead doctors the justice that they deserve.
