Another Rest Of The Story

The Lone Star State killed another killer last night. But along the way, one of those little details leaked out. You know -- one of those little details the dominant news media don't want you to know until after they've whipped up a lot of hysteria about a story.

In this case, we finally see that it was only after the miscreant in question was convicted that he requested a meeting with the Mexican Consulate.
Medellin's execution, the fifth this year in the nation's busiest capital punishment state, attracted international attention after he raised claims he wasn't allowed to consult the Mexican consulate for legal help following his arrest. State officials say he didn't ask to do so until well after he was convicted of capital murder. (Emphasis added.)

And here all this time, you thought he made that request as soon as he got arrested, didn't you? Apparently, that's what the lamestream media wanted you to think.

Poor freaking wetback...I'm heartbroken.
Truly I am.

Yeah, if you read deeply enough in the more detailed coverage, this came out.

It seems like what was wanted, aside from throwing out the murder conviction (which he so richly deserved) was to come up with a new Miranda warning about consular notification.
