Costa Rica News – When I heard this news I just thought to myself are you frigging kidding me. Four Costa Rican police officers were accused of shooting and killing a homeless man that was sleeping. So what does the Costa Rican legal system do……sets them free still with their jobs and guns with a slap on the hand.
The Criminal Court issued no jail time, although the prosecution had asked for three months’ imprisonment.
Rosibel Morales, a lawyer for the accused officers, said this morning that the measures imposed was for them to sign in once a month and have been reassigned to different areas of Costa Rica.
The defendants with surnames Urbina, 26 years old, Astua (23), Aguero (24) and Dormond (26) and are suspected of having claimed the life of Mario Enrique Alvarez Espinoza, age 50.
The prosecution has accused them of crimes of manslaughter, falsification and alteration of documents.
The incident occurred July 18, when the homeless man was sleeping in a vacant lot in Lomas del Rio, Pavas, San José.
So these sick individuals that most likely killed a person for sport are free to roam the streets with their guns in hand. I guess if you have a government position you can do whatever you want except make a video in your undies.
Thank you for another example of government ineptness Costa Rica.
