Verdict for Kate Steinle’s Accused Killer: ‘What Was the Prosecution Doing?’

Kate Steinle, 32, was walking on a San Francisco pier with her dad on a peaceful summer day. A shot rang out, and she fell to the ground, dying in her father’s arms soon after.

An illegal immigrant fired the gun that killed her, and he was acquitted of murder and manslaughter Thursday by a San Francisco jury. Glenn understandably had a lot of questions about this verdict on today’s show.

GLENN: I am sorry. I am just reading some of the news today. And some of it I just -- it cannot -- absolutely cannot be true.

Disney is -- is debuting its first boy princess with chest hair, to teach a powerful lesson about gender bias. Okay. Why not? Why not? I mean, I don't know if you saw the news yesterday in San Francisco: Kate Steinle's murderer has been declared not guilty. Multiple felon and five-time deportee killed the 32-year-old woman over two years ago, but her family will never see justice.

The California state government has made a complete mockery of the justice system on multiple levels. Answer me this, San Francisco, help me out. I can't seem to wrap my brain around this. How can a man fire a gun into a group of people, kill a woman, then throw the murder weapon into the ocean, get caught fleeing the scene, and get off scot-free? Help me out. I don't understand your definition of law and order.

What was the prosecution doing during this case? The killer admitted that he fired the gun. The only case that the defense had was, this was an accident. This was an accident?

I picked up the gun and it just went off. The old Comey/Hillary Clinton defense of, "I don't think they meant it." You know, the no ill-intent thing. Which I thought, Stu, didn't we just discover from Al Franken, it doesn't matter what your intent is.

STU: Al Franken, yeah.

GLENN: I'm sorry. A, I kind of need consistency. And, B, I don't think this is good enough. At the very least, he should have gotten involuntary manslaughter. That's what happens when you make a mistake with a gun, you get involuntarily manslaughter. Did the prosecution not care? Had they not read that part of the law? Are they completely incompetent? If you live in the sanctuary cities in California, how can you ever feel safe?

You're already mostly forbidden from protecting yourself. The gun laws are among the strictest in the country. But not only that, the government of California has now shown that they cannot protect you either.

Ice has declared they will deport this murderer yet again. But we all know it won't matter. He'll come right back. And the state of California will not only do nothing about it, but they will welcome him with open arms.

Now, the killer didn't get off completely unscathed, they did actually nail him for something. It wasn't murder. It wasn't manslaughter. It wasn't illegally being in the country. The new crime on his rap sheet is illegal possession of a firearm.

Wait. What?

If that doesn't say it all, I don't know what does. For the leftist, blaming the criminal always runs second to the gun. The killer is innocent. It is the gun that is guilty.

One final question for the justice system in California: If the shooter would have been a white person and the victim an immigrant -- an illegal or legal -- would the verdict be the same?

Segregation Survivor: How to Counter BLM's Race LIES | Bob Woodson | Ep 106

Civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson has lived through segregation and been a victim of racism. But he doesn't fit the Left's mold. In fact, he's providing an alternative narrative to their "equity." With the Woodson Center and 1776 Unites, he is offering solutions that BLM rejects, but that are actually helping improve the lives of countless people trapped in poverty and inner-city violence. He goes through all of this and more in his latest book, "Red, White, and Black: Rescuing American History from Revisionists and Race Hustlers." And he joins Glenn to make the case that the radical Left does not represent the majority of the black community. As leftist race-baiters make millions off branding the police as white supremacists while breaking the spirits of Americans of ALL races, Woodson calls out their moral treason, speaks truth to power, and denounces real racism for what it truly is: evil.

Biden's Big Speech: The Glenn Beck & Mark Levin Rebuttal

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.

Is 2022 Our Last Chance to Save America? | Victor Davis Hanson | Ep 105

Do you know where your water comes from? Renowned historian and conservative commentator Victor Davis Hanson gets his water from a well on his family farm. He pumps it himself. And he believes that's what more Americans need — to be grounded and stop taking so much for granted. Hanson joins Glenn to point out that this needs to happen soon, because as he describes in his new article, "The 10 Radical New Rules That Are Changing America," things are getting ... bleak. The Left is subverting the Constitution more every day. The value of the dollar is dropping. The media has fused with the radical Left. Corporations, Hollywood, Silicon Valley are all working together to increase their power and their wokeness. And academia isn't any better — as a senior fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution, Hanson has watched for himself the deterioration of constitutional rights on campus. And as a historian, he knows how all of this usually ends — and what we must do to prevent it.

Dollar Decimation: How Biden’s Spending Spree Will End Our Currency

If it feels like the U.S. government is spending money like it's going out of style, it's because it is.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes the TRUE state of our economy that the Biden administration doesn't want you to see. Obama kicked off a spending spree that was continued under the Trump administration, and now President Joe Biden will finally push us over the ledge with the $2.3 TRILLION "infrastructure" deal.

All signs point to a major economic disaster. And the perfect storm is brewing to convert the greenback into a new digital currency. Think Bitcoin, but with CENTRAL bank control, where we could see the end of private savings and private spending and your finances are tracked. Every time our money gets converted, your wallet will take the losses.
