Where is the outrage and protest over the death of 14 year old Jose Meraz?
His young body was found in a heavily wooded area near the Addicks Reservoir in the northwest section of Houston. Meraz had been stabbed and hacked with a machete.
Why was this teenager so brutally murdered? According to his family, Jose refused to join the MS-13 gang, so they hacked him to pieces. Sgt. C. Sturdivant with the Houston Police Department’s homicide unit stated:
“Jose Meraz was a member of this organization for a short amount of time and he did not want to be a member in the future. He wanted out and that was one of the motivating factors that led to his death.”
So far, three arrests have been made in the case with more arrests possible. Charged with murder are 22 year old Jose Granados-Guevara, 17 year old William Alexander Valladares and an unnamed 14 year old who had been turned over to the Harris County Juvenile Probation Department.
Jose Meraz was not black, he wasn’t killed by a white cop and his death is just as tragic, but there has been no public outrage or protests over it. Instead, Houston’s mayor is too busy trying to promote her lesbian agenda and attack Christian pastors. Perhaps Mayor Parker needs to work on curbing gang violence and other more important issues than allowing men to use women’s bathrooms, showers and dressing rooms.
This should tell the people of Houston exactly what Parker’s priorities are and why they need to take immediate action to get her out of office and put in someone who will tackle the important issues facing Houston like gang violence. Posters need to displayed all over Houston demanding the recall of Parker for Jose Meraz’s sake!
