MS-13 ‘Animal’ sentenced to federal prison for 40-years in murder case

During the same week that the Democrats and the news media accused President Donald Trump of racism for his labeling members of the Latino crime syndicate Mara Salvatrucha — a/k/a MS-13  —  animals, a member of a notorious MS-13 clique who named himself “Animal,” was sentenced to 40 years in federal prison for murder and other offenses, law enforcement  officials reported on Tuesday.

MS-13 gang member Joel “Animal” Martinez  pleaded guilty in a federal courtroom in Boston, Massachusetts, last week to racketeering conspiracy involving the stabbing murder of a 15-year-old boy in East Boston.

The 23-year-old gangbanger was part of MS-13’s Eastside Loco Salvatrucha (ESLS) clique, which operated in Chelsea, Everett, and elsewhere in the greater Boston area.

Martinez confessed that on Sept. 20, 2015, he killed a 15-year-old boy on Trenton Street in East Boston. In recorded conversations between him and a cooperating informant (CI), he acknowledged being a member of MS-13 and admitted that he stabbed the victim to death. Specifically, he said, “I stabbed the asshole three times, and it was a beautiful thing! Just beautiful!”

As a result of the murder, Martinez was “jumped in” and made a “homeboy,” or full member of MS-13, during a ceremony that was surreptitiously recorded by federal agents. When a prospective member is “jumped in,” members of the MS-13 clique beat the new member with their hands and feet while one of the leaders of the clique counts aloud slowly to thirteen, police officers noted.

Following a 36-month criminal investigation, Martinez was one of 61 individuals named in a superseding indictment targeting the criminal activities of alleged leaders, members, and associates of MS-13 in Massachusetts.

Martinez is the 27th defendant to plead guilty in this case.

MS-13 and Satanic Ritual Killings

Houston police officials have identified the female victim of a MS-13 human-sacrifice as Genesis Cornejo-Alvarado, a  15-year-old from the Houston suburb of Jersey Village. The mother of the girl previously stated she believed her missing daughter had been killed by the two MS-13 suspects.

The two adult suspects,  Diego Rivera and Miguel Alvarez-Flores, both 18-years-old, allegedly kidnapped and raped at least two young girls, Breitbart Texas reported on Thursday. Following an incident where the suspects claim that one of their female prisoners “disrespected” a satanic shrine in the apartment of one of the men, Rivera and Alvarez-Flores took her to a deserted road in where they shot her to death, the county prosecutors told the court.

The two MS-13 gang members, who illegally entered the United States and lived in Houston, a “proud sanctuary city,”  were originally from El Salvador, considered the birthplace of MS-13

The suspects held the surviving victim against her will while they were on the lam moving from one apartment to another.  The gangbanging Satanists kept her intoxicated with alcohol and drugs alcohol.  She also accused the men of tying her up and tattooing the image of the “Grim Reaper” along the entire length of her calf, according to prosecutors.
