The U.S. government and the City of San Francisco are asking Kate Steinle’s family to dismiss the wrongful death lawsuit in a hearing on Friday.

Kate Steinle was shot and killed in July of 2015 on Pier 14 along San Francisco’s waterfront. Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, an undocumented immigrant, has been charged in the murder.

Lopez-Sanchez was released from the San Francisco City Jail in Apil.

The family of Kate Steinle filed the federal lawsuit in May of 2016 against former San Francisco sheriff Ross Mirkarimi, Immigration and Custom’s Enforcement, and the Bureau of Land Management.

The lawsuit seeks to hold the Bureau of Land Management, ICE, and former Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi accountable for providing “the means and opportunity for a repeat drug felon to secure a gun and kill Kate,” according to the complaint.

Mirkarimi refused to hold Lopez-Sanchez for ICE, citing San Francisco’s sanctuary city law.

Kate Steinle’s parents argue the gunman would have been kept in custody and deported if the city and federal officials had done their jobs.

No it is a few of them. Ice gets thrown in because it would be harder to dismiss having a part of the federal gov tied in. Fuck sf and the way these assholes think. I still don’t understand their thinking and never want to.

I don't see it in the story, but on what the fuck basis are "city officials" asking them not to sue?

Are they like "We'd really rather you didn't. Kthnx." or "Please don't sue, because feelings will be hurt."

How about, if you don't want to get sued, don't do stupid shit like coddle and protect filthy savages? How about you don't fuck up in the first place, and then you won't have to beg for mercy later, dumbshits?

So we can't sue gun makers for making evil guns but we can sue cities for not working with immigration officials to deport hard-working immigrants who happen to find and accidentally discharge evil guns?

Immigrant acquitted in Kate Steinle’s shooting death wants gun conviction overturned



Jose Ines Tuco Benidicto Jaun Rameriez Garcia Zarate is led into court in 2015 by San Francisco Public Defender Jeff Adachi and Assistant Dist. Atty. Diana Garcia for his arraignment in San Francisco.

Reporting from San Franshitsco —

A Mexican man whose role in the shooting death of a woman walking on a San Francisco pier touched off a fierce immigration debate is seeking to overturn his felony gun possession conviction. It was the only charge he was found guilty of after a jury acquitted him of murder.

Jose Inez Garcia Zarate had been deported five times at the time of the shooting and was wanted for a sixth deportation proceeding.

Lawyers for Garcia Zarate filed the expected appeal last week in state court.

He was charged with murder and illegal gun possession in the fatal shooting of Kate Steinle in July 2015. Steinle was shot in the back was she walked with her father on a city pier crowded with tourists taking in the sights.

During the trial, his defense lawyers called an expert who testified that an unintentional ricochet shot killed Steinle. They argued that the weapon went off in their client’s hands in what was a tragic accident. Garcia Zarate wants the gun conviction overturned, contending he didn’t know a gun was in his hands because it was wrapped in a T-shirt when it fired and he dropped it almost immediately after picking it up. He argues in court papers that he can’t be convicted of illegal gun possession.

Garcia Zarate had been recently released from jail at the time of the shooting after prosecutors dropped a 20-year-old marijuana possession charge. He had been transferred to San Francisco’s jail after serving nearly four years in federal prison for illegal reentry into the United States.

The San Francisco sheriff released Garcia Zarate from jail despite a request from federal immigration officials to detain him until they could pick him up for deportation proceedings. San Francisco’s so-called sanctuary city policy bars local law enforcement officials from cooperating with most federal immigration investigations.

The shooting and the city’s sanctuary policy turned into a major campaign issue in multiple national and local races across the country. President Trump referred to the shooting repeatedly during his 2016 campaign to bolster his argument for tougher immigration policies and his opposition to sanctuary cities.

The gun used in the shooting belonged to a U.S. Bureau of Land Management ranger who reported it stolen from his car parked in San Francisco. A San Francisco jury in 2017 acquitted Garcia Zarate of murder but found him guilty of illegal gun possession, and he was sentenced to the time he spent in jail awaiting trial.

Trump tweeted that the verdict was “disgraceful,” and former U.S. Atty. Gen. Jeff Sessions blamed San Francisco’s sanctuary city policy for Steinle’s death. The U.S. attorney in San Francisco then filed federal charges of illegal gun possession and Garcia Zarate was transferred to federal custody.

That case has been on hold pending the outcome of a closely watched U.S. Supreme Court case challenging federal prosecutors’ authority to duplicate state court charges in federal court. If the Supreme Court finds the practice unconstitutional double jeopardy, a federal judge said he would dismiss Garcia Zarate’s federal gun case.

Oh and:

Appeals Court Says Parents Can't Sue San Francisco Over Immigrant Who Killed Daughter


A federal appeals court in California ruled that the parents of Kate Steinle, a woman fatally shot by anunauthorized immigrant illegal alien in July 2015, cannot sue the city of San Francisco for failing to notify immigration officials of his release from a local jail weeks before the killing.

A three-judge panel of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, in a unanimous decision, ruled that San Francisco's then-sheriff, Ross Mirkarimi, violated no federal, state or local laws when he released Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, also known as José Inez Garcia Zarate, on a minor marijuana charge without notifying Immigration and Custom Enforcement.

The ruling upholds a lower court in dismissing "a general negligence claim" against the city filed by Steinle's parents. Their suit alleged that Mirkarimi drew up a memorandum instructing city employees to limit the information shared with federal officials about the release of unauthorized immigrants from the San Francisco jail.

"Our holding today makes no judgment as to whether or not the policy established by the Memo was wise or prudent. That is not our job," the panel wrote.

The judges said city's policy did not violate federal law and that Mirkarimi had a right to enforce the memo.

"The tragic and unnecessary death of Steinle may well underscore the policy argument against Sheriff Mirkarimi's decision to bar his employees from providing the release date of a many times convicted felon to ICE," wrote Judge Mark J. Bennett, a Trump appointee.

"But that policy argument can be acted upon only by California's state and municipal political branches of government, or perhaps by Congress — but not by federal judges applying California law as determined by the California Supreme Court."

Steinle, 32, was killed as she was walking along a San Francisco pier with her father. She was struck by a single shot from a stolen gun the defense argued had been accidentally discharged.

In 2017, Lopez-Sanchez, a five-time deportee, was acquitted by a San Francisco jury on murder charges, but was found guilty of the lesser charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm.

President Trump called the verdict "disgraceful" in a tweet. He has frequently mentioned the case when criticizing local "sanctuary city" policies.

Lopez-Sanchez is in custody on federal gun charges.

you know how this is going to go...HE will now file a lawsuit against the city for wrongfully detaining him which prevented him from applying for citizenship. SF will award him monetary damages, permenant residency, a stipend and a public apology.
