Yesterday The New York Post posted an article about a recent shooting death in the New York City subway. The murder was gang related, but the NYPD wasn’t interested in having that information available to the public.
The article reports:
He’s an MS-13 gangster and illegal immigrant accused of murdering a rival on a subway platform — but you wouldn’t even recognize him on the street if the NYPD had its way.
Cops bent over backward Tuesday to shield alleged killer Ramiro Gutierrez from public scrutiny after his arrest for Sunday’s broad-daylight slaying in Queens — going so far as to feed reporters bogus information about his whereabouts and claim ignorance on his illegal status hours before President Trump’s State of the Union Address renewing his request for a border wall.
Gutierrez, 26, has been in custody since Monday for the execution-style killing of Abel Mosso, 20, in front of horrified straphangers.
But cops waited until 4 a.m. Tuesday to announce that he had been formally charged.
Then they called reporters Tuesday afternoon to say that he would be walked out of the 115th Precinct station house at 4 p.m. — only to sneak him out a back door by 2 p.m. en route to a courthouse in Queens.
The article continues:
Gutierrez’s NYPD rap sheet goes back to at least 2010, when he received a summons for disorderly conduct, according to sources.
He’s been collared on at least nine misdemeanors and four felonies, including for drug possession, sources said, noting that five of his arrests are sealed.
Gutierrez was out on $2,500 bail for felony conspiracy charges when he allegedly killed Mosso.
He was arrested last Dec. 11, and by Dec. 13 he had pleaded “not guilty” and posted bail, records show.
The arrest put him on ICE’s radar, but the agency was not aware he was in the US illegally until Tuesday, agency officials said.
White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders seized on Mosso’s killing to make the case for tighter border security.
“These things should not be happening,’’ she said Tuesday on CNN.
“We know that the crime and the drugs and those things drastically stop if you have real border security, and that includes a wall.’’
