Illegal Immigrant Charged in the Killing of Two Officers: ‘I Wish I Had Killed More’
An illegal immigrant from Mexico accused of killing two police officers burst out during his murder trial saying, “I wish I had killed more.”
“I wish I had killed more of the [expletive],” Luis Bracamontes told the jury during the beginning of the trial in Sacramento, California, on Jan. 16.
“The only thing I [expletive] regret is I only killed two,” he added, reported Fox40.
Prosecutors say Bracamontes, 37, admitted guilt multiple times during the trial. He’s accused of killing Sacramento Sheriff’s Deputy Danny Oliver and Placer Sheriff’s Deputy Michael Davis Jr. in October 2014.
After he said he wished he’d killed more, Bracamontes added another shocking statement.
“I will break out soon and I will kill more, kill whoever gets in front of me … There’s no need for a [expletive] trial,” Bracamontes said, reported the Sacramento Bee.
Public defender Jeffrey Barbour said that his client is guilty but is arguing that Bracamontes is mentally ill.
He also wants the jury to consider a blood test that found an “excessively high” amount of methamphetamine in his system, saying it made the Mexican native paranoid and agitated.
Along with killing the two officers, prosecutors say that Bracamontes shot a motorist in the head, killing the driver, and wounded another officer in a violent rampage.
It’s not the first time Bracamontes has had an outburst where he admitted his guilt.
In June, reported the Bee, he said: “I’m glad I killed them [expletive]—and I don’t regret it at all. [Expletive] the [expletive] justice, [expletive] the [expletive] country.”
