Illegal immigrant alleged cop killer, he wants to be ‘killed’

Luis Enrique Monroy Bracamontes is accused of killing two California police interrupts the first day of the trial with profane outbursts.

Illegal immigrant Luis Bracamontes smiled again Tuesday when a California jury gave him a death sentence after being convicted in 2014 killing of two police officers, but this time, the deputies’ families gave the cold-blooded killer a taste of his own medicine.

“I smiled back to him deliberately,” Jeri Oliver, Sacramento County Sheriff’s Deputy Danny Oliver’ s mother, told The Sacarmento Bee after court. Debbie McMahon, the mother of the fallen Placer County Sheriff Detective Michael Davis Jr., agreement “to smile at him for a change.”

The convicted cop killer made headlines during his trial in January, when he smiled, and went into a profanity-laced rant in court, saying: “I wish I had killed more of the mother——-s,” and promised “more to kill, to kill everyone in front of me … There is no need for a f-ing trial.”

He also shouted in court that he was guilty and asked to be killed. The defense tried to convince the judge for a plea of not guilty on account of insanity.

After hours of deliberation Tuesday, a Sacramento Superior Court jury ruled that Bracamontes will get what he asked for and received the death penalty for his gruesome crimes.

As the verdict was read, the illegal immigrant from Mexico was still clapping and laughing, sometimes at the families of the slain deputies, the Sacramento Bee reported.

Bracamontes went on a multi-county killing rampage in 2014, the killing of Oliver and Davis.

We are very grateful for the jury’s decision to sentence Luis Bracamontes to death for the murders of Det Michael Davis Jr. And Dep Danny Oliver. It is a fair decision appropriate for his crimes.
