In a stunning profanity-laced admission, 37-year-old Luis Enrique Monroy Bracamontes said “I wish I had killed more of the mother—–s,” as he sat grinning through a trial where he’s charged with murder for the killings of two Northern California sheriff’s deputies. Bracamontes interrupted the Sacramento Superior Courtroom with his expletive-laden tirade, going on to say “I will break out soon and I will kill more, kill whoever gets in front of me… There’s no need for a f—ing trial.”
“I can’t even imagine what these officers wives were going through hearing this,” says Mary Ann Mendoza, whose son Mesa Police Sgt. Brandon Mendoza was killed by an illegal alien drunk driver. “It’s just another dose of reality of the violence from some of the people who are here illegally and it’s time for our politicians and our court systems to take these threats seriously because these people don’t value the lives of Americans.”
Bracamontes is on trial for the 2014 killings of Sacramento Sheriff’s Deputies Danny Oliver and Placer Deputy Michael Davis Jr. in a daylong spree of violence that began at a Motel 6 and ended in a shootout about 30 miles away. Bracamontes defense attorneys claim his outburst in court is evidence that their client is unfit to stand trial. His attorneys have already unsuccessfully attempted to enter a plea of not guilty by insanity.

“This piece of crap has shown he’s not insane, he knows exactly what he’s saying, he knows exactly what he’s doing and he predicted the future what he will do if he’s out in public in America,” says Mendoza. “The grin on his face, he almost looked ecstatic that he pulled it off and he wished he would’ve killed more. He’s a maniac and I sure as heck have to pray and hope that he’s not released on our streets in some way but you never know in California whether it will happen because you’ve heard of crazier things.”
Bracamontes is a Mexican citizen who has a long history of drug arrests and has been deported twice. He could face the death penalty if convicted. His wife, 41-year-old Janelle Monroy is also charged in the killings, she faces life in prison if found guilty.
Both Bracamontes and Monroy were in a car parked in a Motel 6 parking lot with the trunk lid up when Deputy Oliver and his partner approached the suspicious vehicle. Oliver was shot to death with an AK-47-style rifle. Bracamontes and his wife then fled north to Auburn where Deputy Davis Jr. was killed in a shootout before they were finally arrested.

Bracamontes attorneys’ fear that he will not receive a fair trial because of the “anti-immigrant sentiment” from President Trump. It’s an argument that the attorneys for Kate Steinle’s killer, Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, successfully employed in a trial that ultimately led to his acquittal.
