A Little Jail House Justice...!


I'm just guessing, but I think this may only be the start of this inmates future fun-filed days behind bars!

Seems like even the bad guys have their own ideas of punishment for some offenders, and this particular inmate may just wish he had stayed i Honduras before it's all over with!

Try as I may, I somehow can't feel sorry for this guy!

Inmate needed stitches after attack

A Harris County jail inmate awaiting trial for murder beat up a young illegal immigrant accused of robbing and fatally shooting a 14-year-old girl in the back as she was walking home Aug. 6.

Melvin Alvarado, 22, one of two men charged with capital murder in the death of Shatavia Anderson, was beaten Thursday evening, sustaining serious enough injuries that he required a trip to a hospital and stitches, said Alan Bernstein, with the Harris County Sheriff's Office.

Alvarado is in the U.S. illegally and has been twice deported.

Accused in Alvarado's beating is Robert Williams, 38, Bernstein said.

A volunteer inmate crew at the county jail on San Jacinto entered Alvarado's cell about 5:30 p.m. Thursday to clean it during the one hour he is allowed out of it daily.

Williams "pushed his way" inside the cell and assaulted Alvarado for "a few moments," Bernstein said.

A detention officer pulled Williams off Alvarado, but not before Williams beat him, leaving him with cuts, swelling, bruising and injuries to a right eye and left ear, Bernstein said. He was unsure which particular injury required sutures or how many were required.

Alvarado was taken to LBJ Hospital for treatment; Bernstein was unsure if Alvarado's care required him to stay overnight or when he returned to the jail.

Alvarado was back in a cell Saturday — at a different jail, on Baker — and treated in the medical unit there, he said.

The Harris County District Attorney's Office did not bring charges against Williams because he already is facing a higher-level murder charge, Bernstein said.

Williams will, however, face the jail system's in-house discipline, under which he could lose credit for good time served, commissary privileges and visitation, Bernstein said.

Also charged in the girl's murder is Jonathan Lopez-Torres, 18, a native of Honduras and a lawful resident of the U.S.

Shatavia's family earlier this week publicly called for tighter restrictions on immigration.

The girl, who would have been a freshman at Nimitz High, was discovered the morning of Aug. 7 in a field adjacent to the apartments where she lived in the 1100 block of Langwick.

Maybe the courts will start to catch on that sending some prisoners to jail in Texas is a good way to help them see the errors of their ways! But then, maybe not!

I hope he heals fast, because like I said...I think this is only the beginning!

How about some coffee in the kitchen? Too darn hot outside!

Do you think that I feel sorry for this guy? Not for one little moment. He had already been deported TWICE and he still kept coming back into the US!

I bet that if they asked the American people to volunteer for a legal militia, we would have enough men and women willing -and proud- to defend every single inch of our border.
Maybe then, this kind of stuff would stop once and for all.

Hey Tatersmama...
Like I said, I have a feeling that this guy's troubles are just beginning! If he stays in jail here in the states, he is going to have a really bad time!

Couldn't happen to a more deserving person!

Thanks, darlin', for coming by this morning!

Rough justice is sometimes the answer Jim. Pity the courts didn't have it available as an option. I don't care that he was illegal or deported twice, the a-hole is just bad.

I purloined your idea on the Theremin post on Tomus Arcanum. That was great, I had never heard that before... ah credited the idea here.

I think we need to give Williams time off for good behavior. Let the inmates run the asylum. Thanks for the great info.

Good Morning My Special One
My favorite subject. Living here in AZ. and having a govenor with guts has brought us some bad reviews from these illegal sympathizers. these dirt bags can get deported everyday and they are right back the same day or by the next. They are nothing more than drug dealers , people smugglers and murderers I am sick of these people who keep saying they are looking for a better life. SHOW ME what they are doing to better themselves. these sympathizers have not felt the rath of these illegals.
Better pass the pot before I really get going.

Hey AV...
I certainly don't mind a bit if you use anything from my blog. I get a lot of it from public sources, and some I just get curious about!

Right you are about this guy just being totally bad! Rough justice may be all he can understand!

Time to take off the kid gloves!

Thanks for the visit today!


Hey Momlady...
It's a shame that the courts don't follow the lead of the inmates in some aspects. Not saying that they are always right, but sometimes they do what we wish we could!

Thanks for coming by this morning!


Hey China...
He is definitely gonna go through some tough times, that's for sure!

I appreciate the visit today!


Hey Mechanic...
If we don't give him time off, then maybe a few more privilages!

Sometimes the bad guys get it right!

Thanks for the visit today!

HermitJim said...

Hey JoJo...
Maybe we should think about deporting them to another place. Ya know, a country other than the one they came from!

Better yet, how3 about we find an island somewhere and put them all on it!

Let them deal with one another for a few years!

Thanks, sweetie, for dropping in today!

Just goes to show that even priosoners have their own moral code and there are some crimes that are not tolerated even when jailed. While I'm not sure whether or not to cheer for the beating - somehow that doesn't seem right - I'm not in the least sorry for the one beaten. Pity is more for the young woman and her family.

At least he got more than the usual slap on the wrist...

HermitJim said...

Hey Beatrice...
Hard to feel sorry for him, and sort of hard to make a hero out of someone accused of murder! A real "catch 22" situation!

Guess the man upstairs will sort things out in His own way!

Thanks for coming by today!


Hey Dizzy...
Kinda sounds like it, doesn't it?

Thanks for coming by today!

Seems to me, two people need to experience the thrill of rope burns and extreme chiropractic adjustments, and one other needs to receive a medal before his execution.

HermitJim said...

Hey Catman...
Sounds like a workable plan to me! Probably can find plenty of volunteers to hand haul the rope for adjustment, ya know?



Going home to Honduras is probably looking better and better to someone right now!

Thanks for the visit, buddy!
