Someone named Carlos murdered Wanda Lopez in Texas. Carlos Hernandez. Someone named Carlos was arrested near the scene of the crime. Carlos DeLuna. Good enough! So after a hasty trial with a cheap and incompetent defense lawyer, Texas executed Carlos DeLuna.
Hernandez had a mustache and was wearing a grey flannel shirt, DeLuna was clean-shaven and wearing a white dress shirt. Hernandez was later arrested for another murder, and confessed to killing Wanda Lopez.
Didn’t matter. Texas had a Carlos.
There can’t be that many Hispanic men named Carlos, right? Just round ‘em all up.
Once we’ve cleaned them out, we can start on the Juans.
Man, it’s like Texas took all the flaws of America and blew them up to ten times the size of anyplace else, and is proud of them.
