Alvarez's estranged wife said he threatened her and her family and threatened to abduct their 3-year-old son, although he never physically assaulted her, according to a request for a temporary restraining order that was granted Dec. 14, The Associated Press reported.

"He threatened to take our kid away and to hurt my family members," Carmelita Alvarez said. "He is planning on selling his vehicle to buy a gun and threatened to use it. He is using drugs and has been in and out of rehab twice."

Alvarez, a U.S. citizen, watched as the train barreled into his SUV shortly after 6 a.m.

"He was found right at the scene," [Glendale Police Chief Randy] Adams said. "The suspect has admitted placing his vehicle on the tracks."

U.S. Attorney's Office spokesman Thom Mrozek said there is potential federal jurisdiction with a possible death penalty in the case.

Hopefully this at least will assuage some of the anti-illegal suspicions and insanity that has been stirred up.

Thanks for saving additional bandwidth. I suspect this thread will be very short. People can't type with egg on their faces.

I hear that paranoia can travel halfway around the world while the facts are still putting on their boots ... or something like that.

Hey I'll admit I thought he was illegal. Whoop de doo. Doesn't change the fact that the expectation was based on the general lawlessness that we are importing from that border.

If I knew who they were, I'd ping every one of them to this thread.

Okay, I take it back...where I said he'd feel at home in jail with all the other illegals. Still, he seems more Mexican than American, esp. with his fascination with Mexican witchcraft and the name they gave their son.

Not yet...

At least this means the Mexican Consulate will not be protesting the death penalty being applied to a Mexican citizen in the US.

I'm tempted to go back to that thread and write them all down, but I don't care to waste my life on their bigotry.
