Police Kill Juan Hernandez

Posted on | February 28, 2021 | Comments Off on Police Kill Juan Hernandez

Don’t expect to see the #Justice4Juan hashtag trending on social media, nor is it likely that the police shooting of Juan Hernandez will give rise to a #LatinoLivesMatter movement. No, I think everyone in America will agree, Juan Hernandez needed killing:

A former Camp Lejeune Marine who was convicted in 2014 for the shooting death of his wife was gunned down by police in Pennsylvania after officers say they witnessed him beating a transgender woman, who later died as a result of her injuries.

(Did you catch that? Just seven years ago, this guy was convicted of murdering his wife, but was already back on the streets where he was in the process of beating a tranny to death when cops killed him. Explain to me again about our “mass incarceration” problem?)

At about 11 a.m. Friday, New Wilmington police were called to a home on South New Castle Street. When officers arrived, they found 33-year-old Juan Carter Hernandez beating 24-year-old Chyna Carrillo with a blunt object. When officers ordered Hernandez to stop, he ignored them and continued beating her, according to Pennsylvania State Police.
The officer shot and killed Hernandez at the scene. Carrillo was taken to St. Elizabeth Hospital in Youngstown, where she died.
The officer who killed Hernandez has been placed on administrative leave, which is standard procedure during the investigation process.
Hernandez was released from prison in North Carolina in 2019 after he pled guilty to second-degree murder in Onslow County Superior Court. He was sentenced to 8-10 years and four months in prison for shooting and killing his 20-year-old wife Kandace Hernandez in their home in Richlands, N.C. on July 20, 2011.
At the time of the 2011 shooting, he was wanted on a federal warrant for desertion from the United States Marine Corps.

No one — absolutely no one — is protesting this guy’s death. However, the family of the wife he killed in 2011 is speaking out:

Tammy Larew, Kandace’s mother, says she was always worried Hernandez would hurt another girlfriend after killing her daughter.
Now that she’s seen news of Chyna Carrillo’s killing, she says her worst fear has come true.
“I just scream. This should not have happened. I knew it was going to happen,” Larew said.
Kandace grew up around Youngstown and began dating Hernandez here.
The couple moved to North Carolina due to his career in the military and got married. . . .
[P]olice had been called to their home several times for domestic disputes.
“Kandace was on the phone with my husband six minutes before she was killed, wanting a bus ticket home,” Larew said.
In July 2011, Hernandez killed Kandace in their home. In court, he pleaded guilty to second degree murder and claimed he reacted in self defense.
But Larew wanted to go to trial.
She thinks Hernandez should’ve served more than eight years in prison.
“They say there wasn’t enough evidence and they were going to get him to take a plea deal, and I did not want that,” Larew said.
She thinks a longer sentence would’ve protected Chyna and other women from Hernandez.
“A few people ask me, ‘Do you feel that you got justice now because he’s gone?’ No. I mean, he’s gone, but he still did what he did to my daughter and to Chyna,” Larew said.

Police say Hernandez knew Carillo and they don’t think it was a “hate crime.” So I guess it was . . . a love crime?

Welcome to 2021. Lots of “social justice” out there, allegedly.
