capital murder (updated with mug shot)

The 17-year-old arrested in the violent beating death of an El Paso police officer last month is now
charged with capital murder, court records show.
A state district court grand jury indicted Juan Antonio Gonzalez on Tuesday in connection with the brutal
beating of Officer Jonathan Molina, 29, on Sept. 25 on a Central El Paso street. Molina died nine days
after the attack.
Because of his age, Gonzalez is not eligible for the death penalty. If convicted, he faces an automatic
lifetime prison sentence.
According to complaint affidavits filed by homicide detectives, Molina saw a young man use a key to
scratch his silver Pontiac Grand Prix in the early evening of Sept. 25 as the teens were walking on a
sidewalk on Trowbridge Drive.
Molina got into his car, drove to where the teenagers were and parked at the curb in the 4100 block of
Trowbridge Drive to confront the boys about the vandalism. The affidavits state Molina identified himself
as a police officer and was acting in his capacity as a police officer even though he was not in uniform.
Sometime during the confrontation, Molina asked a bystander to call 911.
While Molina was talking, Gonzalez "struck the victim on the face and then grabbed his legs and threw
him to the concrete. (Gonzalez) then got on top of the victim and continued to punch him in the face," the
Police said that Molina was knocked unconscious when his head hit the ground, and that Gonzalez
continued the assault despite Molina's being unable to defend himself. Gonzalez ran off when witnesses
went to help Molina, who was taken by ambulance to a hospital in critical condition.
Officers searching the area for Molina's assailants found Gonzalez a short distance away near an
apartment complex where Gonzalez lived and arrested him. Juan Antonio Gomez, who was with
Gonzalez and another man during the attack, allegedly admitted to police that he scratched Molina's car
and had been confronted by Molina, who pushed Gonzalez away sometime during the confrontation.
In reaction to being pushed, Gonzalez allegedly punched Molina in the face with his fist, stunning the
According to court documents, Molina suffered a fractured skull, internal head injuries and multiple facial
fractures. Investigators also found that Molina's car had scratches on the right side, the hood and the rear
Molina had been with the Police Department for four years and was a patrol officer in the Central Regional
Command. Before joining the department, Molina did tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan with the Marine

I hate reading sickening stories like this one. It seems that thugs don't just rough people up a bit and leave but try to do the absolute worst they can.

“A gentle answer deflects anger, but harsh words make tempers flare.”
This is f%@$ing crap! What, 4 more months and he'd be eligible for the death penalty?! So what! Fry that little s%@t so the tax payers don't have to support him for the rest of his life. This officer served his community and our country and this is what he gets!!! ARRGGGG!!!!!!! I'm so pissed right now!!!!
