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?

THE GLENN BECK PODCAST

This Brit Has a Dire Warning for America | Douglas Murray | The Glenn Beck Podcast | Ep 89

The state of America is worse than we realize: The Left's obsession with rewriting history has ushered in guilt, fear, and a "silent majority." But British author Douglas Murray asks, "Why should the majority remain silent?" In his latest book, "The Madness of Crowds," Murray warns that something dark has overtaken Western society. And having viewed the American Left firsthand, he now warns that we're heading down the same path as much of Europe did – and leading the rest of the world with us. He and Glenn discuss what he learned from marching with Antifa, the dangers of focusing on race and eroding masculinity, and whether it's actually time to be more like France as even President Macron warns that we've gone too far. But ultimately, Murray stresses with cautious hope that it's always possible to return to truth.

Battleground Georgia: The Radical Democrats Who Will Transform America | Glenn TV

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda. As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Do you have the GUTS to fight for freedom?

So here's what you need to do: it's time mentally to prepare to stand up for freedom, which will likely take a LOT of courage from ALL of us. But, Glenn says, 'I'm not sitting down.' And, it only takes 15-20 percent of us to change the world. Use this Thanksgiving Day to discuss with your families the grim times we potentially may face, and how together you can best articulate to others WHY America's core principles are so important to preserve. So, who's in? Do YOU have the guts to fight for freedom?

Far-left elites are using COVID to ‘reset’ America to socialism

Both Governor Newsom (California) and Governor Whitmer (Michigan) currently are being challenged by their state courts and governments for tyrannical policies issued during the COVID pandemic. And that's GREAT news because the 'Great Reset' continues to be pushed by far-left elites around the world…and Biden's team is in full support. Glenn explains how the Great Reset — a plan issued by the World Economic Forum — aims to use our current pandemic as a means to an end; they'll use COVID as an excuse to push 'stakeholder capitalism,' something similar to the economic system used today in China or the one used in 1930s Germany. Listen, as Glenn explains the TERRIFYING details to their plan…
