Mr. Lizcano, who came to the U.S. from Mexico illegally about five years ago, was arrested on a misdemeanor terroristic threat charge five weeks before the shooting. Authorities say he threatened his girlfriend with a knife.

He was arrested days later on a charge of driving while intoxicated.

The Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency has said it did not flag Mr. Lizcano for deportation because the charges were not serious enough to come to the attention of federal agents at the jail.
His mere ILLEGAL PRESENCE in this country should be reason enough for them to flag him for deportation. This is PATHETIC. I hope that officer's family sues the crap out of ICE.

I'm sure there are many more like it, and thousands of Americans dead in the ground who would be alive today if it wasn't for this plague of illegals...and ICE refusing to do anything about them. Makes me sick.

Judge bars mental capacity testimony in Lizcano trial 1:15 PM CT

Testimony about Juan Lizcano's mental capacity won't factor in determining his innnocence or guilt in the 2005 shooting death of Dallas police Officer Brian Jackson.

Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty if Mr. Lizcano is convicted.

State District Judge Andy Chatham ruled out mental capacity testimony for the guilt/innocence phase of the trial at a hearing Friday. The defense had begun presenting its case Friday morning, including calling two witnesses, before the judge sent the jury out so that hearings could be conducted.

The prosecution rested Thursday.

Officer Jackson was killed in November 2005 while responding to a domestic disturbance call at the home of home of Mr. Lizcano's former girlfriend.

Man found guilty of murdering Dallas police officer

05:30 PM CDT on Tuesday, October 9, 2007

The jury found a man guilty of capital murder Tuesday in the 2005 fatal shooting of a Dallas police officer.

Juan Lizcano was convicted in the death of officer Brian Jackson, and the prosecution is now expected to seek the death penalty. Proceedings in the punishment phase were underway Tuesday afternoon.

Officer Jackson was killed in November 2005 while responding to a domestic violence call at the home of Mr. Lizcano's former girlfriend who called 911 twice to report he threatened her with a gun.

Defense attorneys had argued Mr. Lizcano was not guilty because the officer's death was not capital murder.

"This is in no way a capital murder," said defense attorney Brook Busbee. "He's not guilty of capital murder because he couldn't see the officer."

But prosecutor Josh Healy called Officer Jackson's slaying "an assassin-style killing" and told jurors there was no doubt Mr. Lizcano was guilty of capital murder.

Prosecutors said that the yard where Officer Jackson was killed was well lit.

Prosecutor Patrick Kirlin told jurors that "the credible evidence cries out for" a guilty of capital murder verdict
