Fake Mourner Sentenced to 16 Months

Man accused of stealing the purse and credit cards of a Vietnam veteran's mourning daughter is sentenced to do time in county jail.

A judge recently sentenced the man accused of at Oakdale Memorial Park while she buried her Vietnam Veteran father.

Jose Abrajan, 32, from Chino was sentenced to 16 months in county jail after pleading no contest to one count of identity theft, according to the San Gabriel Valley Tribune.

The court dismissed other charges, including grand theft of personal property and second degree commerical burglary.

Abrajan was photographed, unbeknownst to the victim's family, as he posed as a mourner at the funeral Jume 18. Abrajan stood near the family's SUV and was photographed rummaging through it.

Abrajan then attempted to purchase food at an Azusa In-N-Out soon after the theft, according to Glendora Police.

So are the Mayors of L.A. and San Antonio,Texas. So is comedian George Lopez and millions of other successful and admirable Mexican-Americans who are valuable members of our society. One abberation does not define a race. If it did, then because of Hitler, all Anglos would be considered low-life, homicidal sociopaths.

Hey Dan, I'm Mexican. I don't have a criminal record. I don't steal. I have a pretty successful career. I have great credit and I also know how to use apostrophe's Dickhead!

Relax, People. He said "Mexican", not Mexican-American. It most likely was not a racist comment. Fact is, there is a massive and violent drug war taking place just south of us in Mexico. Additionally, there happens to be MILLIONS of illegal immigrants from Mexico living here. Many of whom are of the criminal element. 40% of Ca prisons are occupied by illegal immigrants from Mexico and Central American countries. Men's Central Jail in LA is jammed with illegal Mexicans. I doubt his comment was a racist one. If it was, then shame on him. But lets not immediately get offended. Mexican-Americans, European Americans, African Americans, .....and the many other cultures that we all derived from make up our nation. We all contribute. One comment does not mean they were "defining a race" as a whole.
Albert G September 15, 2012 at 03:07 PM
Yes it does, Matt. Show the comment to any Mexican-American and see if they are offended. Comments like that are considered hate speech are and are held suspect by society's standards and by law.

I'd agree Dan's comment is derogatory and racist. On the other hand, B.K., I could throw out example after example of racist quotes from George Lopez and his obvious feelings that Hispanics are superior to all the other races. It isn't all about comedy either. Poor example to use B.K.
Albert G September 15, 2012 at 06:41 PM
I offered George Lopez as an example of a Latino who is not in jail and who is successful. I did not focus on his views, politics or opinions. I stand by that. He's an excellent example of a successful Mexican-American. What he believes and says is a whole other issue. Sure, he says things that are not politically correct and he panders to his audience, but every comedian does that. It's part of the profession. As Steve Martin once said, "comedy is not pretty". :)

Lopez is a racist period, a successful Latino racist is still contemptible as any other racist. It's not about not being P.C., most comedians aren't and most aren't racist like Lopez.
Albert G September 15, 2012 at 08:48 PM
Bill, whether Lopez is a racist or not is irrelevant and immaterial to this thread. I gave him as an example that, unlike the "Mexican" who committed this crime, Lopez represents the other end of the spectrum. And you must know as well that what an entertainer says and does onstage is not necessarily who they really are or what they really represent. Neither one of us knows him well enough to label him a racist.
Bill C. September 16, 2012 at 12:32 AM
Total B.S., you're making an excuse for a racist and I've heard him enough and seen enough of his quotes to know it, don't tell me what I do and don't know. You're the one who called out Dan for his comment which you called hate speech, that brought racism onto the thread. Then you use a racist as a positive example of a Latino who isn't it jail? It makes no sense, there are plenty of law abiding Latino's, well known ones, that aren't racists or in jail. Just saying you should have used a different guy to make your point. ,

t doesn't really matter, Whatever works for you :) But have a good week anyway :)
Holly Hale September 22, 2012 at 06:54 AM
Granted the tone of Dan's comment sounded derogatory, the word "Mexican" is not hate speech. It's how it is used that makes it hateful but "hate speech" is pretty strong. BTW: The First Amendment is still in force and if someone wants to speak hatefully they certainly have a right to do so. When it turns into hate speech is when it is accompanied by injury.....such as committing violence against someone.

What a jerk! Stupid and dishonest all rolled into one.
