Reyes Garcia Blames System For Mistakes

An undocumented worker accused of killing a Mt. Juliet couple blamed the court system for his actions. Gustavo Reyes Garcia pleaded guilty in court Monday, but not without having the last word.

With help from an interpreter, Garcia blamed a system that allowed him to get multiple DUI’s with very little punishment.

“They gave me like 45 days and they didn’t really punish me and I just kept driving and driving,” Garcia said.

Police said he slammed head-on into a car driven by Sean and Donna Wilson of Mt. Juliet while his blood alcohol content was four times over the legal limit. He had been arrested 14 times before.

It’s the systems fault this guy snuck into the country, got behind the wheel of a car, drove illegally and killed people?

Yes, it is the system’s fault they didn’t deport this guy the first time he was arrested. It was their fault he wasn’t deported each subsequent arrest. However, the system didn’t pour alcohol down his throat and make him swallow.

“This has also made me harbor a deep resentment for Mexicans and illegal immigrants and lose all faith in my government,” the victim’s brother Dewight Wilson said.

Perhaps if the federal government would actually enforce the law, people like this Garcia guy wouldn’t have still been in the country to kill innocent people.

No one, legal or illegal, should ever get behind the wheel of a car after drinking. However, it’s no excuse for the government not to do it’s job to keep it’s citizens safe.

Garcia will be eligible for parole in seven and a half years.

Then he’ll be deported to sneak into the country again. He’s habitual. Perhaps he should be imprisoned in a Mexican jail after release? Won’t happen, but it would be nice.
