Mexican man accused of threatening US Attorney
Tucson, Arizona | Published: 09.25.2008

PHOENIX — A Mexican man has been indicted by a federal grand jury in Phoenix for allegedly threatening to assault or kill the U.S. Attorney for Arizona and an assistant prosecutor, an official said Thursday.
Julian Javier Salazar-Martinez faces four charges, including threatening a public official and obstruction of justice.
The U.S. attorney's office in San Diego is prosecuting the case because the victims work for the Arizona office, said Christopher Tenorio, a prosecutor in the San Diego office who is assigned to the case.
Salazar-Martinez, 40, is accused of attempting to mail a letter to U.S. Attorney Diane Humetewa and assistant U.S. Attorney Bret Alexander that threatened them if they prosecuted him for illegally re-entering the country after being deported.
He was arrested on June 10 at the border crossing in San Luis, Ariz. while trying to enter U.S., according to a criminal complaint charging him with illegal re-entry after being deported. He allegedly claimed to be a U.S. citizen born in Phoenix but later admitted he was an illegal immigrant.
While in federal custody in July, he tried to mail the threatening letter, but it was intercepted by jail guards, Tenorio said.
Salazar-Martinez remains in federal custody. His arraignment on the new charges hadn't yet been set, Tenorio said Thursday. A call to his attorney wasn't immediately returned.
Records show the Salazar-Martinez has been deported four times since 1989. He also has been convicted six times in Arizona and California since 1986 on various charges, including assault, theft and aggravated assault. He has twice been sent to prison in Arizona, according to court records.

This sounds like the story of a turd that won't flush! Maybe it's time to take a plunger to this turd and the rest of his anti-american illegal brethren!

I couldn't agree more.

Default Honest mistake

Nothing to be alarmed about here folks. In many parts of the world, murdering attorneys and judges is looked at as an acceptable way to influence a court case. In those places, it often works. Mr. Salazar-Martinez apparently thought it was worth a try here.

Just a little cultural disconnect, that's all. Cultures are different, and we don't ALWAYS know whether to make eye contact..whether to bribe a policeman....whether to greet with a hug, or a handshake..or whether to kill a prosecutor.

Just a little cultural misunderstanding, that's all. I'm sure Mr. Salazar-Martinez now understands that's NOT going to get him anywhere, here. But you can't blame a man for trying. If he's illegal, it's possible nobody ever EXPLAINED US culture to him....do you think?

As usual, spot on! Most likely, this is standard operating procedure in Mexico. Had this man taken the time to learn OUR culture, he would have known better. This is simply another illustration of a lack of assimilation.

How ignorrant of all of us Americans to not consider your point! Perhaps Mr. Salazar had forgotten that the US isn't a third world country.

Unfortunately, the way things are going, we MAY have to forgive him this misunderstanding. In some ways, we may soon BE one.....
