Residents Demand Justice After Motorcyclist Killed

WCVB (Boston), August 23, 2011

Some members of the Milford community are demanding justice after a young man there was hit and killed while riding his motorcycle Saturday night after being dragged under a pickup truck for several blocks.

Police said the driver of the truck that hit the victim, Nicolas Guaman, 34, is an Ecuadoran who is in the U.S. illegally and has a lengthy and violent criminal record.

Now, some Milford residents are urging President Barack Obama to get involved. Marie Parente is one of them. She spent years representing the Milford area as a state representative and now, she’s written an open letter to Obama urging him to come to her community after the death of Matthew Denice, 23, who was hit and killed in Milford Saturday night.

Denice was riding his motorcycle when a pickup truck hit him, dragging him nearly a quarter of a mile, investigators said.

Police charged Guaman with Denice’s death. They said he was driving drunk and is in this country illegally. {snip}

Parente said it’s the third death involving an illegal immigrant in Milford in the last two years.

She believes Guaman might have been apprehended sooner if tougher immigration laws were in place, something she thinks Obama needs to explain.

“Tell them why you want to give in-state tuition and amnesty to this illegal population, explain it to them. Because one of them killed their friend,” Parente said.

Milford Patch, August 23, 2011

The following is a statement released Monday night by the office of Lewis Evangelidis, Worcester County Sheriff. The Sheriff’s Office on Monday took custody ofNicolas Guaman, 34, the driver charged with motor vehicle homicide, operating under the influence of liquor, and other offenses in the death of Milford resident Matthew Denice, a motorcyclist who was struck and killed after he was dragged a quarter-mile in the road. Guaman is an Ecuadorian citizen who told Milford police he is here illegally. He was arrested in Milford in February 2008 on charges of assault and battery on a police officer, two counts of assault and battery on a public employee, and breaking and entering, according to the Worcester District Attorney’s Office. The charges were “continued without a finding for a year” in May 2008.

The statement from Evangelidis:

Suspect and illegal immigrant Nicolas Guaman is presently being held at the Worcester County House of Correction. “As Worcester County Sheriff, I want to be emphatically clear that if the Secure Communities Act was already in place, a criminal alien such as Nicolas Guaman with a prior arrest record could have been identified by the Department of Homeland Security and ICE giving them the opportunity to deport Mr. Guaman in advance of this horrific crime on Aug. 20.”

“The Secure Communities Act is a commonsense federal program designed to identify and deport illegal immigrants who have previously been arrested, most importantly it protects the citizens of Worcester County and the Commonwealth from unthinkable tragedies like this.”

“As Sheriff, I find it implausible to think that Governor Patrick would not reconsider his failed position and lack of leadership on this issue and begin to immediately enact Secure Communities.”

The Worcester County Sheriff’s Department is fully committed to implementing and supporting the Secure Communities Act and will work diligently with federal agencies to identify and deport illegal immigrants who have been previously arrested for a crime.

“Moving forward, it is extremely important that we do everything possible to prevent a horrific tragedy like this from happening again.”

    I said the same thing a while back about a story I read here where a female officer was shot and killed by an illegal alien who had been deported no less than 5 or 6 times. I said then that someone from the Federal government should be made to explain to that womans children why they no longer have their mother and why they can’t/won’t secure our borders and how that alien managed to get back across so many times.

    I don’t know how many more deaths like this it will take to get our people to start demanding action, and really mean it and not let up on the issue.

    I read about illegal alien drunk drivers killing people all the time, and they usually get a slap on the wrist, or they run back to Me-hico(for a while) until they get so sick of it that they come back to White Supremacist Gringoland. Steven Staynor, who was kidnapped at an early age and then at 14 walked back to his life, then got married and had two children.You may have heard about him.He was later killed by an illegal alien drunk driver.His brother became a minor serial killer, and was sentenced to death row.

    This happens all too frequently. A few years ago a friend of mine was struck by a car while riding his motorcycle. While he was lying on the ground unable to rise the driver spoke a few words in spanish and then walked away leaving the car. Police later told him there was no way to prove who was driving the car and that was the end of it. The USA needs to enforce its laws.

    This illegal is exactly the king of person who would be exempted from deportation because the Feds want to focus on “serious criminals.”

    But wait, two white kids killed a black guy in Texas! Stop obsessing about all the whites being killed by illegals! We NEED them, our clean our shorts and stuff, and are willing to accept a loss or two, or three, or four – hundred.

    NOTE SARCASM

    When will this nation wake up and put its foot down?

    I used to live in Santa Rosa. It was once a lovely place, and safe. Mexicans have ruined the entire area. You have to hold your nose if you go out anywhere there. They are everywhere you go – in droves.

    I once heard Geraldo Rivera say that this is about drunk driving, not immigration, when the same thing happened in Virgina Beach a few years ago. The difference Geraldo is simple, we can’t stop all drunk driving but if we enforce our borders we can stop all illegal-immigrant drunk driving. Any way we can cut down on tradgedies like this we should.

    This is the basic function of government: to protect our borders and citizens.

    I’m not sure I have much sympathy when this happens to politicians……. I have yet to find one who hasn’t been part of the big ‘sell out’

    Peejay thank you. I remember Steve Stayner very well. I knew he was killed in a motorcycle accident but the media covered up the fact that he was hit by a car driven by a drunk illegal alien.

    He left a very young wife and 2 toddlers.

    I myself am severely handicapped due to a hit and run by a 4ft 10 man who looked pure hispanic indian. There were no witnesses so he was not inconvienced by a few days in the local jail.

    Liberals in their insane desire to control all activities are in the forefront of the anti drunk driving campaigns and driving down the legal limit to just about no alcohol at all. What are they doing about illegal hispanic drunk drivers?

    In the future the liberals will probably create different alcohol standards for different races. Whites who drink so much as an ounce of 3-2 beer will be prosecuted for drunk drivig.

    Non White races will be allowed to drive so drunk they cannot sit up straight.

    Think I’m exagerating? Look at the impossibly high standards required of Whites for employment and college admission and the impossibly low standards required of non Whites for college admission and emloyment.

    “Parente said it’s the third death involving an illegal immigrant in Milford in the last two years.”

    This in a town of 28,000 (2010 census). Staggering!

    As of the census of 2000, Hispanic or Latino of any race were 4.36% of the population.

    Probably since the 2000 census considerably more cultural enrichment has occurred.

    About 20 years a co-worker told me about a story about a friend of hers. Seems the friend was driving home when a drunken Mexican on a motorocyle ran a red light and the friend hit him and killed him. Obviously, it wasn’t her fault and no charges were filed. However, the Mexican’s family hired some ambulance chaser who sued the friend. My co-worker said that with the trauma of having killed a man (even though it wasn’t her fault), the expense of having to hire an attorney, and a long legal battle, her friend almost had a breakdown and had to go into therapy. My co-worker said the whole thing almost ruined her friend’s life.

    If Osama really did lecture this illegal wouldn’t that kind of be like him preaching to the choir.

    Kenya isn’t in America is it?

  • Jeddermann.

    The estate of this young man that was murdered needs to file a whole bunch of civil suits against all that have advocated giving sanctuary to the illegal aliens among us. Those persons advocating giving sanctuary have helped to establish a climate of lawlessness that resulted in the death of the young man.

    AmRen maintains a file and list of legal staff able to work pro bono on such cases? If not, such a list should be initiated soon.

    “He was arrested in Milford in February 2008 on charges of assault and battery on a police officer, two counts of assault and battery on a public employee, and breaking and entering”

    This Guzman too sounds like an illegal that is into just more than drunk while driving. Sounds like a really bad egg.

    As tragic as this death was it is one of many that happens daily. When I first saw this story, I had just read of another where a drunken illegal had plowed into a car and killed four people, then there was a story of a child killed by another practicing his “cultural” tendency to drink and drive. Years ago, when this because an epidemic here, I wrote to Madd and asked they didn’t mention this horrific situation. They quickly went into PC mode and said they wanted to keep the emphasis on ALL drunk driving and not single out a certain part of society. That sickened me. If they did do a few PSAs, then the problem would get the attention it needs. I know this isn’t limited to drunk illegals, but it seems more concentrated in some and these terrible “sccidents” would not have happened had these people NOT been here! Get them out of here. My condolences to the family of this young man. A promisng life was ended thanks to our government’s determination to keep illegals here.

  • jdavis

    Please awaken to the fact that your government wants them here, and you dead. These people are our replacements, get it?

    Prove me wrong. I’m waiting for your argument to set me right.

  • Miss Whitey

    What Americans must understand is that it is considered manly or “macho” in Mexico to get behind the wheel of a car and drive drunk. When they come here they drag that cultural mindset with them and cause mayhem and death in our country.

    Yet another reason to use attrition as a form of immigration enforcement. If the illegals refuse to self-deport, then they must be physically deported. NO MORE EXCUSES!!

    I left Los Angeles because it wasn’t safe to drive there anymore. I live about 60 miles south of LA now in a mostly white community. We of course have Mexicans and others that work here. The ones I know personally are very nice. Unfortunately there are some illegals that come here and cause accidents as well. They run lights, cut people off, tailgait, run people over etc. Whites aren’t perfect either, but these people are extreme. I have been guilty myself of going through a yellow when i should of stopped, but these people, simply plow through the intersection, long after the light has turned red. This kind of driving is rampant South of the border. If you say anything or honk your horn, they become full of rage and will do God only knows what in retaliation. YOU’RE NOT ALLOWED TO DISAGREE WITH THEM. In LA, it’s much worse, but it’s getting bad everywhere. I almost never drive anymore, only short distances for chores, ect.

    Ironically, Mr. La Hood works for someone who wants open borders and amnesty. And as others have said above, MADD looks the other way on the immigration issue.

    I think the incidents of these sorts of experiences must be very high. In California, which has a huge number of hungry lawyers, every single way of creating lawsuits has been tried and no doubt will continue to be tried. I had an experience due to feminism, which I defeated because I called their bluff and refused to settle, indicating strongly that we were going to court. I wanted to see the accusing party perjure herself. It was merely an attempt to bilk some money through an out of court settlement. The ordeal lasted six months and I was miserable because of the embarrassment of being accused. I wound down my professional life and retired fairly poor because I could no longer work comfortably with young women around because they are typically very wild and unethical in general, even when in professional settings (on the West Coast at least).

    No one can calculate the harm done by all of the special, leftist, interests of the past 40 years. This is likely a terminal history.

    Contrast what this person is reporting to the cries of the Philly black community over the new curfew. They complained that now they were being “jailed.” I would love to know how many whites remain intentionally indoors, being careful about what streets they drive on, where and when they shop, etc. It is whites who are being held hostage by Diversity. I bet that this one post represents likely hundreds, even thousands of whites in Southern California. They must be stuck economically because living that miserably can’t be fun.

    Too bad California has such restrictive carry laws. I think they would be more polite otherwise.

    Geraldo always rationalizes in favor of Hispanics. I’ve seen him doing it for decades. Regardless of the overwhelming statistics,of crime and costs, he always falls back on the argument that American needs Hispanics. At some point, he has to be seen as an accessory to the many crimes he indirectly encourages.

    — Up to my neck in CA:

    This happens all the time in the SF Bay area.

    Heartbreaking case!!

    And, it’s happening EVERYWHERE!

    A little four year old boy dies so democrats can have more voters.

    Here is a follow up:

    Christopher and his family were crossing West Ninth in a marked crosswalk when he was hit by a westbound Honda Accord, police said. The car drove away from the intersection, which has no stop signs or signals.

    Soon, a 47-year-old Santa Rosa man named Leroy Flach – who heard about the crash on his police scanner – spotted the car at Finley Park, less than a mile from the crash. He said he had called police after he saw the driver peeling off an orange San Francisco Giants decal from the rear window.

    The man got into a silver Volvo driven by a woman, Flach said. He relayed the license plate number to police, who by 8 p.m. had found and arrested Marcos Lopez Garcia, 22, who lives near Jacobs Park. Prosecutors were expected to file charges today.

    Christopher is survived by his parents, James Rowe Jr. and Michelle Rowe, his older sister, Mimi, and his twin sister, Julia, as well as grandparents, uncles and cousins.

    I can hardly stand to read these stories, but it is important that we do, that these cases are reported widely to the American public and disseminated to as many people as possible. The public has a right to know and become righteously furious!

    And it’s important to know that the US government has NO intention of protecting American citizens from drunken illegal colonists who have NO respect for American law, sovereignty or LIFE.

    You see, only citizens are mandated to follow American laws.

    Obama Orders Work Permits for Illegal Aliens, Plus Fewer Deportations.

    Are you angry yet?

    The statistical inference can be made that this happens SIX TO SEVEN TIMES DAILY!! At least that.
