This is the first case I’ve seen in which an accused, illegal immigrant criminal has formally demanded a jury of his homeland “peers”. But the real story is the victim’s father. No NPC meme can do this story justice!
Illegal Alien Accused of Murdering Mollie Tibbetts Requests Hispanic Majority Jury Pool
By John Binder, 4 March 2019
The illegal alien charged with murdering 20-year-old college student Mollie Tibbetts is now requesting that jury selection for the September trial be moved to a county in Iowa with a Hispanic majority population.
In August 2018, Bahena-Rivera, an illegal alien from Mexico, was charged with Tibbetts’ murder after police said he admitted to confronting and chasing down the young woman after her body was found in a cornfield in Poweshiek County, Iowa. The illegal alien lived in a region of Iowa that was surrounded by sanctuary cities, as Breitbart News noted, and worked on a dairy farm using a stolen ID and Social Security card after allegedly crossing the U.S.-Mexico border as a child.
Surrounded by sanctuary cities? Huh, per the following link, Iowa is as sanc-timonious as New York. Powesheik County is east of Des Moines along the Interstate.
The yellow dots are sanctuary counties, the red dot is a sanctuary city, Iowa City. President Trump, is this not the face of insurrection?
In a motion filed by Bahena-Rivera’s attorneys and obtained by the Des Moines Register, the illegal alien requests that the jury selection be moved out of Poweshiek County — where the alleged murder took place — to a county in Iowa with a larger Hispanic population.
“Without venue where a minority population is substantially represented, [Bahena-Rivera] cannot be fairly tried and any jury pool chosen will have to be stricken,” the motion states, asking that the illegal alien’s Mexican nationality be taken into consideration when picking a new county for jury selection.
Bahena-Rivera’s attorneys claim “a fair and impartial trial cannot be preserved with a jury selected from [Poweshiek] county,” due to alleged negative perceptions of the Hispanic community in the area, the attorneys write citing online comments from news stories with no verification of whether the commenters live in the county.
The defense is also wanting to move jury selection to a minority-majority region…
This should be logically impossible.
…because they claim Hispanic witnesses are concerned for their safety about testifying on Bahena-Rivera’s behalf.
The lawyers who filed this should be disbarred in shame. The reason for change of venue requests are to avoid a tainted jury pool, for example a high-profile crime that was widely but locally circulated or a locally famous defendant. But the reason for this request is SPECIFICALLY to taint the jury pool! “They don’t feel safe cooperating with police near whites. They only feel safe living and working near whites. I hope Your Honor will grant this racially motivated request without bringing up race issues.”
The Founders’ intention of “jury of one’s peers” was to prevent professional juries. A subversion which has been floated by America’s termites many times during its history.
“These individuals fear reprisals from locals who hold strong opinions concerning Latinos following [Rivera] being charged,” the defense attorneys write.
The illegal alien’s attorneys said widespread media coverage of Tibbetts’ alleged murder and national attention surrounding the case helped to “further fanning the flames of prejudice and jeopardizing the fairness of these proceedings against [Bahena-Rivera],” and therefore the jury selection should be moved to a more Hispanic dominated county.
Because Hispanics don’t follow the news, while their very presence in this country is dependent upon the outcomes of said news?
“The death of Ms. Tibbetts, it can be seen from this group, still very much remains in the forefront of the Poweshiek County community members’ minds,” the defense attorneys write.
The population of Poweshiek County is only 19,000. A change of venue for that reason would be plausible (any crime in rural Corn World would be major news) but their true motivation came out in demanding a venue with lots of Mexican nationals.
The request to move jury selection to a minority-majority county is just the latest plea that Bahena-Rivera has made to the court. As Breitbart News reported, the illegal alien had initially requested that he not be called an “illegal alien” and his attorneys have said that he has a “constitutional right” to receive $5,000 in state taxpayer money to hire an independent investigative team for his defense.
Better idea: $5,000 of Mexican Embassy money.
According to prosecutors, Bahena-Rivera was the last person who saw Tibbetts jogging on the evening of July 18 in Brooklyn, Iowa, security camera footage reveals. That is the night Tibbetts went missing.
The illegal alien told police that Tibbetts was jogging when he saw her, according to prosecutors. That is when he said he approached Tibbetts and started talking to her. After Tibbetts told Bahena-Rivera that she would call the police if he did not stop following her, the illegal alien allegedly chased her and says he “blacked out” after this.
Just plead guilty, you fuckwitted vibrant.
Police believe Bahena-Rivera stabbed Tibbetts to death, then drove to a cornfield where prosecutors say Bahena-Rivera placed corn stalks over her to hide her body. The illegal alien has been held on a $5 million bond and the [first-degree] murder trial is set for September.
But wait, there’s more! The grieving family responded to Mollie’s death by taking in Rivera’s cousin-in-law after Rivera’s parents abandoned him while fleeing to Illinois.
The mother of Mollie Tibbetts, the University of Iowa student whose disappearance and killing attracted national attention, has taken in the son of Mexican immigrants who worked with her daughter’s accused killer, according to a Washington Post report.
In a story published Friday, the Post reported that Laura Calderwood has brought into her home Ulises Felix, a 17-year-old boy whose parents worked alongside murder suspect Cristhian Bahena Rivera at a dairy farm in Brooklyn, Iowa.
After Bahena Rivera’s arrest, Ulises’ parents fled town for Illinois and left behind their American son, a high school boy, according to the Post. When Mollie’s younger brother, Scott, asked Calderwood if they could take in Ulises, the 55-year-old woman wondered what her daughter would do, Post reporter Terrence McCoy wrote.
Ulises has been living in a spare bedroom in Calderwood’s house. Mollie’s brother, Scott, also lives there.
There are no words to describe this level of white guilt. Astonishingly, and not to be outdone by his ex-wife, Mollie’s father Rob Tibbetts wrote an opinion piece for the Des Moines Register begging people not to see her murder as an immigration issue.
Ten days ago, we learned that Mollie would not be coming home. Shattered, my family set out to celebrate Mollie’s extraordinary life and chose to share our sorrow in private. At the outset, politicians and pundits used Mollie’s death to promote various political agendas. We appealed to them and they graciously stopped. For that, we are grateful.
Yes, you should be allowed room to grieve. No, you do not get to pretend that this sort of thing is not directly relevant to illegal immigration. To their shame, some people can’t see a problem with xenophilia until blood gets shed. To YOUR shame, you can’t see a problem even then. And you forfeit your room to grieve when you went on public record voluntarily.
Why do my people have a death wish?
Sadly, others have ignored our request. They have instead chosen to callously distort and corrupt Mollie’s tragic death to advance a cause she vehemently opposed. I encourage the debate on immigration; there is great merit in its reasonable outcome. But do not appropriate Mollie’s soul in advancing views she believed were profoundly racist. The act grievously extends the crime that stole Mollie from our family and is, to quote Donald Trump Jr., “heartless” and “despicable.”
Mollie is now violently dead but hey, nobody can say she was RAYYYCISSSS!
Make no mistake, Mollie was my daughter and my best friend.
At her eulogy, I said Mollie was nobody’s victim.
Leftoid confirmed. “Crime is society’s fault! Including my daughter’s premeditated murder!”
Nor is she a pawn in others’ debate. She may not be able to speak for herself, but I can and will. Please leave us out of your debate. Allow us to grieve in privacy and with dignity. At long last, show some decency. On behalf of my family and Mollie’s memory, I’m imploring you to stop.
Throughout this ordeal I’ve asked myself, “What would Mollie do?”
Turbo-Cuck confirmed. Since when in human history has a man’s peak-SMV young daughter had better judgment than him?
As I write this, I am watching Sen. John McCain lie in state in the Capitol Rotunda and know that evil will succeed only if good people do nothing.
You did nothing to protect your daughter and evil succeeded. If you don’t want to talk about immigration then how about frivorce leaving children vulnerable to predators?
Both Mollie and Senator McCain were good people. I know that both would stand up now and do something.
Does he feel as bad about the death of John “Songbird” McCain as he does his own daughter?
The person who is accused of taking Mollie’s life is no more a reflection of the Hispanic community as white supremacists are of all white people. To suggest otherwise is a lie. Justice in my America is blind. This person will receive a fair trial, as it should be. If convicted, he will face the consequences society has set. Beyond that, he deserves no more attention.
“Justice is blind but coloreds who come here illegally shouldn’t be punished!”
To the Hispanic community, my family stands with you and offers its heartfelt apology. That you’ve been beset by the circumstances of Mollie’s death is wrong. We treasure the contribution you bring to the American tapestry in all its color and melody. And yes, we love your food.
My stepdaughter, whom Mollie loved so dearly, is Latina. Her sons — Mollie’s cherished nephews and my grandchildren — are Latino. That means I am Hispanic.
No, it means you remarried a barrio rat in Fresno. More in a minute.
I am African. I am Asian. I am European. My blood runs from every corner of the Earth because I am American. As an American, I have one tenet: to respect every citizen of the world and actively engage in the ongoing pursuit to form a more perfect union.
You cannot be both American and globalist. By the brass gates of Hell, there are commissioners in San Francisco with a better grip on reality!
Given that, to knowingly foment discord among races is a disgrace to our flag. It incites fear in innocent communities and lends legitimacy to the darkest, most hate-filled corners of the American soul. It is the opposite of leadership. It is the opposite of humanity. It is heartless. It is despicable. It is shameful.
We have the opportunity now to take heed of the lessons that Mollie, John McCain and Aretha Franklin taught — humanity, fairness and courage. For most of the summer, the search for Mollie brought this nation together like no other pursuit. There was a common national will that did transcend opinion, race, gender and geography. Let’s not lose sight of that miracle. Let’s not lose sight of Mollie.
Rob Tibbetts. Face shape is trapezoidal, I think. That shape is known for practicality and time-consciousness… very meticulous. Many middle managers, not to mention Deep Staters, have that face shape. I see determination lines between his eyebrows and the eyes are mildly recessed, so he’s got some grit. At the same time, however, his irises are very large which indicates sensitivity to the outer world. Strong emotions under control, and not directly expressed because of thin lips. Close, conformist ears. (Notice the tops of the ears turn out. That usually indicates he wears glasses. I actually checked if those were McCain’s favorite style but McCain didn’t wear glasses.)
I wonder if his nostrils are triangular? That would be an indication of confrontation. But his chin isn’t strong enough for him to be a natural at confrontation. His hooded left eye suggests he’s received plenty of confrontation from his wife.
Together, this is a good NPC face. He takes his original programming and defends it harshly from the outside world, but rarely in the form of direct action. He was probably raised by Neocons and now will take his Neocon programming to his grave.
Not his daughter’s grave.
I found one more source that makes me believe there was an Electra complex between Rob and Mollie Tibbetts.
Rob Tibbetts recently remarried, and Mollie was a key part of the wedding, which occurred June 3, 2018 in California.
The father told The Des Moines Register that the family “took a boat ride” and started diving into a lake from a large rock. Mollie screamed but jumped in, he told the Des Moines newspaper, adding that Mollie was his “best man” in the wedding.
“‘I’m your best man, I’m going with you,’” Tibbetts told the newspaper Mollie said. “She was my best man, and she was every bit the best man.”
His daughter from Marriage #1 was the best man at Marriage #2?
Rob Tibbetts is a member of the board of directors for the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce [but lives in Fresno].
Well, at least Rob Tibbetts got to suffer the consequences of the illegal immigration he’s pushed upon my homeland. Rivera murdered Mollie so shamelessly that he can’t even lie about it but her blood belongs on her father’s hands.
