MS-13 Member Named ‘ANIMAL’ Sentenced After Gang-Initiation Killing
An MS-13 gang member named “ANIMAL” has been sentenced in Massachusetts for racketeering conspiracy involving an East Boston murder.
Adriana Cohen of the Boston Herald points out the amazing story that smacks down liberals in the media who objected to Trump calling MS-13 members “animals,” and even lied to suggest that Trump was referring to all immigrants.
An MS-13 gang member known as “Animal” has been sentenced to 40 years in jail for racketeering conspiracy in the murder of an East Boston teen.
Joel Martinez, a/k/a “Animal,” 23, a Salvadoran national formerly of East Boston, faces deportation after he’s served his time in prison. He will not face any murder charge, the Suffolk DA’s Office added today.
Martinez admitted that on Sept. 20, 2015, he murdered a 15-year-old boy on Trenton Street in East Boston by stabbing him, the U.S. Attorney’s Office announced today.
Martinez admitted to an informant he did the killing: “I stabbed the culero three times,” and stated, “He stared at me and he asked me if I was going to, if I was going to stab him. I told him, ‘Yes, the Mara rules you,’” the feds said.
That slaying, federal prosecutors said today in a statement, made him a member of the ruthless gang.
Martinez pleaded guilty to “conspiracy to conduct enterprise affairs through a pattern of racketeering activity, more commonly referred to as RICO conspiracy,” officials said. The federal murder charge, officials told the Herald, is only used in the death of a federal agent.
The victim, 15-year-old Irvin Depaz of Chelsea, was stabbed to death on Trenton Street just after 5 p.m. almost three years ago, according to Boston police.
That murder resulted in Martinez’s induction as a full MS-13 member during a ceremony that was recorded by the feds.
Martinez enters the U.S. Bureau of Prisons system.

The Southern Poverty Law Center’s (SPLC) public goal is to fight hate and bigotry and to seek justice for the most vulnerable members of our society. But in reality, much of what they do has nothing to do with meeting that goal, and oftentimes does the opposite.
In a recent Facebook post, the SPLC targeted the White House’s statement which refers to members of the violent criminal gang MS-13 as “animals.” The SPLC called that statement “racist” and “dehumanizing.”
