Tampa Police arrested 31-year-old Joseph Obregon on charges including racing and vehicular homicide after he reached speeds up to 70 mph in his 2012 Dodge Ram pickup as he headed west on Sligh Avenue.

About 10:40 a.m. at the intersection of Florida Avenue, he continued to rev his engine and speed, causing the truck to lose traction, witnesses told police. When he reached the intersection of Highland Avenue, he struck a 2008 Toyota RAV4 and sent it into a power pole, according to a report. Passenger William Val Swartz, 78, died, and the driver of the RAV4 remains in critical condition.

After striking the RAV4, Obregon went on to hit a 2011 Honda Accord, causing minor injuries to that driver, police said.

Police are still looking for the driver of a white pickup that was driving alongside Obregon in a similar manner.

Obregon--name of a city in Mexico. So we know. William Val Swartz, just another innocent American life sacrificed on the altar of tolerance in the sanctuary city of Tampa. Betcha Obregon will be tried right here. And he'll be acquitted of all charges because the jury will be made up of his "peers" just like Zarate's was. And there's plenty of them to choose from in Tampa. They'll want to send a message to Trump. The die has been cast and don't they all know it.

The only one that might get sucked in on charges and actually prosecuted...the driver of the other truck...if it’s a white, hetero male US citizen.

“the sanctuary city of Tampa. “

When did Tampa become a sanctuary city?

I’ve lived in Tampa for 33 years. It’s been a gradual process. In 1996 my wife was rear-ended on a local street while stopped for a red light. By an Hispanic male wearing sun glasses driving 30 mph. I was there when the Sheriff’s deputy at the scene approached the driver of the other vehicle. Tampa has no-fault insurance laws. Sheriff’s deputy didn’t even bother to have the guy remove his sunglasses, so the deputy could see if his pupils were or were not dilated. Deputy just let the guy go, and gave us a form to fill out. In our family that is when law enforcement became selective. My wife has had physical problems with her knee ever since that accident. All the other driver said to us in broken English was “I sorry”.
