The Kate Steinle murder trial has reached an outrageous conclusion. Mexican citizen and illegal immigrant Garcia Zarate was acquitted of her murder and convicted of a weapons charge instead. Should he have been convicted for murder? Vote in our CBC reader poll!

I can’t believe Flynn would do something like that.
This is great, no one will get penalized for not having medical insurance. Thank you President Trump, People Shouldn’t Be force to get something they don’t want.

He should be shot in his f $%king face . I have the Bullitt.
December 3, 2017,3:24 am
They need to put him in jail, not deport him. Our American prisoners will give us the justice the corrupt liberals failed to give. They will send him out in a pine box and THEN the DOJ can deport him!
December 3, 2017,2:25 am
I’m from California! And I did NOT vote for any of these crazy, dishonest, money-grabbing Liberals!!!!! This man should be hung!!!!!!
December 3, 2017,1:25 am
I can see where two people from California voted.
December 2, 2017,7:25 pm
What a dreadful miscarriage of justice. Now all illegals can come into California and sponge on us taxpaying voters. My parents and grandparents were immigrants and worked their butts off! They expected (and got) no special treatment or money from the government!
December 2, 2017,7:09 pm
He should be executed
December 2, 2017,6:04 pm
He should have been put away forever as far as I am concerned. If he had been a white man who did it they would have thrown the book at him!!! He has been thrown at of the country 5 times and he keeps creeping back in. He has a rotten criminal record. What was that jury thinking! They must have been a bloody bunch of liberals!!!
December 2, 2017,4:04 pm
The defense probably loaded the jury with liberals. Not too hard to do in the Frisco area. The whole region is out of touch with the rest of America.
December 2, 2017,3:14 pm
I think someone got to the jury.That bastard should be hung in town square along with the Jury,the defense attorney and the judge.What a travesty of are justice system
December 2, 2017,2:41 pm
only PROVES ”’WITHOUT *ANY* DOUBTS calf is a LAWLESS TERRITORY,
December 2, 2017,2:32 pm
KANGAROO COURT & KANGAROO JURY IN A LAWLESS TERITORY!!!#
what other result would~could be expected!!!
December 2, 2017,2:30 pm
It has to become mandatory in that piece of garbage state RIGHT NOW that a jury can’t be full of only brainless un-American ”“fullicraps” like that trial obviously was. God bless beautiful Kate and her family, I can’t even begin to imagine what that did to them. Thank God only in that worthless piece of garbage state are illegals more important than Americans. OMG, who would ever dreamed this would happen here. When that fabulous fence is put up? Put that worthless stinking rotted backstabbing state ON THE OTHER SIDE. What a relief that would be and no one would miss them.
December 2, 2017,1:50 pm
an illegal murders an American citizen and it’s okay. how nice!!!!!!
December 2, 2017,1:12 pm
he a Woman has lost her life to a set of actions that in no way could be viewed as an accident to be an accident it would have had to be an accident from the moment the Gun was picked up and that it was lawful to be holding the gun. Prayers for the loss of the family, I Hope and Pray that the DOJ find this guilty and closes this sad part of your lives.
December 2, 2017,1:07 pm
Condolences to the Steinle family.This is truly a travesty.This is not what Americans want.Deport illegals.ALL OF THEM!
December 2, 2017,12:07 pm
Why don’t you vote those liberals out and turn back to GOD ,if we don’t America will become a socialist Nation . May God forgive us and heal our land . May God comfort and bless Kate’s family. Her killer will not go unpunished and neither will the jury .
December 2, 2017,10:49 am
I am from California run by liberals mayors to city councils to our state governor jerry brown he had been establish liberal for century , we paid the highest state tax In the country and if you own your home like I do your property tax go up every year at least $ 100.00 a year , now this monsters liberal want to raise gas tax in our state, we are already paid the highest gas prices in the country over $ 3.60 a gallon, so they can use our hard earning money to support illegal allies and sanctuary city , we had so many homeless from San Diego to Los Angeles and at lease 45% homeless are veterans. Remember in 2018 and 2019 vote them out of office, I don’t care if republicans or Democratics just keep them out of office . American do not allow this great country to become Europes , there are at least over 400 ( No go Zone ) in Europes today if you are no Muslim you can get kill to enter no go zone in Europe police refuse to go in no go zone . They live in Europes but they he’d there own block like another country with in Europes, Trump tell the ture what happen to Sweden today I had family in UK and a best friend in Sweden , my friend is Swedish and live in American more then 10 years before she gone back to her country, she is afraid to leave her house after dark , there are so many single male Muslim the crime is so bad .
December 2, 2017,12:48 am
The verdict by the SF jury was a repudiation of President Trump’s immigration stand, as most Americans, and his stand on sanctuary jurisdictions.He should have been convicted of at the least manslaughter and at the most murder.
December 2, 2017,12:17 am
a sad day for the steinle family. you are in our prayers & have been for a yr. what a travesty . soooo sorry !!!!!
December 1, 2017,10:42 pm
I feel terribly sorry for this ladies family that needed justice to be served but yet our justice system failed miserably! Shame on your jurors and judge how unamerican is this.
December 1, 2017,9:58 pm
Kate is no longer alive. It is his fault, his doing! He should be on death row!
December 1, 2017,9:58 pm
How can they even ASK should he be convicted of her murder. OF COURSE he should have been. In the REAL world before liberal lunacy.
December 1, 2017,9:51 pm
Send him to my town . Justice will be served.
December 1, 2017,9:32 pm
He is GUILTY!!! GUILTY!!!
December 1, 2017,8:47 pm
He should have convicted for man slaughter.
December 1, 2017,8:40 pm
He knows the immigration as well as anyone. BUT for him being here illegally this would not have happened. He should be charged with murder same as a US citizen would have in just aBOUT ANY OTHER COUNTRY. HELL one of our citizens was beaten to death for vandalism in NK.
December 1, 2017,8:24 pm
Feed that human trash to the sharks in a small pool and the jury that set himfree
December 1, 2017,7:51 pm
The man was an evil criminal and he murdered her in cold blood. There is no way he should have gotten away with murder! The jurors were totally Stupid and obviously a bunch of Liberal assholes. He should have been convicted and sentenced to death and taken out and executed immediately! This whole ‘sanctuary city/state’ bull shit is insane and the Federal government must strip these cities and states of every cent they receive. These cities and states need to be sued by the people who have been injured and lost loved ones to these violent Illegal Aliens!
December 1, 2017,7:13 pm
too many illegal crimes for this loser. DEPORT HIM
December 1, 2017,6:43 pm
I know there was a lot of witnesses, for involuntary man slaughter. He trying to act as a dumb man. This lawyer was not for truth but circumstances. What a joke jury who don’t know knowledge.
December 1, 2017,6:40 pm
Murder Charges require Premeditation ! However, Reckless Endangerment Causing Death, and Manslaughter could have been PROVEN !, The Prosecution Team were responsible for this total miscarriage of justice !
December 1, 2017,6:38 pm
Whoa, that is a crock of crap a 6 time felon what the hell. I personally don’t give that creep 1month and his sorry ass will be right back to kill someone else child. My choice is to take that criminal out to the dessert and fry his ass. You people there in San Francisco CA who thinks it’s so cool that this hard core blood sucking killer got off, my how proud you all must till that cold bastard kills one of your own!!!
December 1, 2017,6:14 pm
Stop the “illegal” taxation of the Working Middle Class for money to play with getting a huge population of people to live under communist-socialism. Left, Liberal, and Democrat are “euphemism” for their tactics and working in our society. Call them what they are, COMMUNIST-SOCIALIST. They are a walking dead people. These are not the Democrats of the distant past. They are haters of “RIGHTEOUSNESS”, “EQUALITY”, & “JUSTICE”. Take away the taxpayers money from funding this nonsense. PRAY! Get informed. Do your duty to God and country. It’s the only country of its kind, in HIS STORY.
December 1, 2017,5:55 pm
How long will the divided States of America take to figure out that “illegal” is “illegal”. It’s okay to come here and kill and it doesn’t matter why but “special interest” will always get you through breaking the law? The last time we looked around 30% of the criminal population of CDCR are “illegal aliens”. How many millions a year alone out of this states pocket let alone the countries? And you want FREE medical? We are praying that the government takes the entitlements away…quickly. The Working Middle Class needs to stop paying for corrupt government and leaders that are full of …………. Pray the Lord’s mercy and pity upon this perishing country. The US Constitution wasn’t meant to be for communist-socialist, or fascist Muslims who cannot assimilate with freedom loving Christians who believe in Jesus. Read the most “conservative” book every published and the most ever published and read book in HIS STORY, the Christian Bible!
December 1, 2017,5:40 pm
So you stand on your driveway and discharge a firearm, it ricochets into a woman’s back and kills her. You sure as hell would go to jail. SF is a sorry joke.
December 1, 2017,5:40 pm
SAN FRANCISCO IS GUILTY OF KATE STEINLE’S MURDER!!
Let the law suits against sanctuary cities begin!
Whatever happened to American citizens rights to safely walk the streets of our own states, cities and country?!
December 1, 2017,5:33 pm
Yet another reason to NEVER travel to CA let alone San Fran. Build the Damn WALL and please construct it on the Eastern borders of CA, OR & WA and the S. Borders of AZ, NM & TX. MAGA!!!
December 1, 2017,5:26 pm
The shot ricocheted and hit her when she was 80 ft away. His story of an accidental discharge was more credible than anything the prosecutor could prove.
Yes it is a tragedy she was killed. No it was not a murder. All you “Law and Order” CBC conservatives had better get your heads out of Trump’s arse, then perhaps you’d see reality.
If he had been a citizen there never would have been a murder charge.
December 1, 2017,5:17 pm
He was found not guilty, this is our way. California must reconcile the illegal aliens or suffer the consequences.
December 1, 2017,5:16 pm
I am totally mortified that JUSTICE was not given correctly. I am a native Californian and so ashamed of my home state. All those involved will pay the price for their dishonor of an American citizen. Wake up California as your days are numbered because Gov.Brown ,Pelosi and Feinstein are leading you down the path of no return.Shameful and deeply disturbing. Prayers and thoughts to the parents who are suffering the despair. Also I do not live there anymore and I’m so glad!!
December 1, 2017,4:55 pm
Hope someone wastes his sorry, greasy azz
December 1, 2017,4:50 pm
The only people that can decide guilt or innocence are the members of the jury.
December 1, 2017,4:47 pm
The only reason why he got off was because he’s an illegal immigrant and he’s in California. And you know the idiots out there don’t give a crap about the actual people that live in this country legally, and are citizens. And you know if you just send him back to Mexico as an illegal he’ll just crossed the border in California and their let them back in. They need to get the states to follow the law
December 1, 2017,4:43 pm
who will he kill next? how many has he killed before?
December 1, 2017,4:41 pm
The guy should have had his nuts cut out with a dull razor and then sent up for 80 years to LOMPOC !!!! The trial he had was pure bullshit !!!! He’ll do it again, mark my words, it will happen.
December 1, 2017,4:38 pm
Isaiah 5:20, Woe unto them that call evil good and good evil, that put darkness for light and light for darkness, that put bitter for sweetness and sweetness for bitter. 21, Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes and prudent I their own sight. This about says it all and what will happen to the Jury, the Judge, the defense attorney, and the killer. It does ot matter if you believe the Lords words, they will never go aay and you, nor anyone else can twist them. There was and still is no justification for declaring this guilty man innocent when he was, and still is guilty. And now the Jury, the Judge, and the Defense attorney and is lies are as guilty as the murder is. You can twist the words, the truth, and lie, but the fact is and will always be, he is guilty of killing a innocent young woman right before the fathers eyes.
December 1, 2017,4:27 pm
Of course he is guilty. He was not convicted because of where the trial was held. Family should have requested a change of venue. We all know that SAN FRANFREAKO is the most liberal city in America, and also a lawless anti American Law sanctuary city. Maybe they will convict him after he kills again! Why is this dirt bag still in this country?
December 1, 2017,4:26 pm
He should have gotten convicted on at least manslaughter charges. This wasn’t a case of a total accident like they are trying to convince people, the guy is a habitual criminal loser who shouldn’t have been in our country first of all and he shouldn’t have had his hands on a gun for damn sure. He was way past the three strikes and your out point and yet look what will happen now, they will just deport him again so he can sneak back in and repeat it his offense.
December 1, 2017,4:14 pm
The man was totally gulty, the jury knew it, the corrupt judge knew it, and so did his defense attorney. I wonder how those people sleep at night.
December 1, 2017,4:14 pm
It would appear to me that if he aimed the gun at her and fired, that is pretty intentional ! You are definitely wrong, MR. LYNCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And probably a liberal professor or some other ridiculous imposter.
December 1, 2017,4:10 pm
he should of been hanged
December 1, 2017,4:08 pm
No telling how many people he’s killed that he didn’t get caught for,he’ll kill again because he likes it!
December 1, 2017,4:08 pm
But that does not excuse fact that he should not have been in this country in the first place
December 1, 2017,4:03 pm
at least negligent homicide, I agree but I do not think the evidence supported murder or intentional homicide
December 1, 2017,4:02 pm
BUILD THE WALL
December 1, 2017,4:02 pm
Wonder how many others this monster will kill. This is a complete travesty. There is no justice for most in the US unless you meet special criteria. This murder victim met none. Must have been her own fault that this innocent illegal killed her.
December 1, 2017,4:01 pm
The Gov.Official that allowed him to stay should also be convicted for aiding an Illegal to remain in this country in violation of.
1907. Title 8, U.S.C. 1324(a) Offenses | USAM | Department of Justice..https://www.justice.gov/usam/criminal-resource-manual-1907-title-8-usc-1324a-offenses
December 1, 2017,4:00 pm
Even if you believe the shooting was an accident, Californias struck gun laws dictate at lease negligent homacide. Not to mention 3 strikes and you are out or IN……
December 1, 2017,3:59 pm
If he had shot a seal, as he maintained he intended, he would likely have been given a life sentence, and PRTA would likely have called for the death sentence.
December 1, 2017,3:55 pm
So sad to see the verdict!!!!! Sanctuary Cities will be the United States downfall!!!! They will take all of OUR FREEDOM away from us!!!! They protect illegals ahead of Americans!!!! If you do not support America, please move!!!!!
December 1, 2017,3:53 pm
He can just come back here…get more welfare….live and do what he wants…..her parents will hurt till they die. He lost his rights.
December 1, 2017,3:51 pm
San Francisco is a sanctuary city and does not follow laws. The fact that an illegal Mexican national is not found guilty of at least manslaughter should not come as a surprise although the legal system in that city and state puts the life of an illegal ahead of an American citizen. It is an outrageous verdict but not surprising.
December 1, 2017,2:18 pm
The legal system is runby big money and drugs
December 1, 2017,1:44 pm
looks like San Francisco and California have become the Devils Advocate. This is a travesty of Justice, the very least he should have been charged with is involuntary manslaughter.
December 1, 2017,1:22 pm
I felt SICK after the verdict..for the Steinle Family…I cried..
December 1, 2017,1:09 pm
Judge Roy Moore lost the Alabama Senate election to pro-choice Democrat Doug Jones. See how Pres. Trump reacted in his tweet!
