I don't think there should be any charges until this is investigated further.

Face it cuz, the guy was a thief and a stain on our shorts. Now he's worm dirt and feeding the tumbleweeds. Our cuz was just one of many thieves and druggies in the family.

The bullet entered Gary Gabaldon,s head at a 45 degree angle and emerged to the front of Gary,s neck just left of his larynx. The bullet was fired 24 to 30 inches away which is why luke sanchez was charged with murder. Luke Sanchez made many mistakes carrying out this murder because of what was told to the arriving police. Blame should be placed on both luke sanchez and gary gabaldon for the fact is they both acted as criminals. Luke Sanchez did not think the media was going to take so much time on this crime and thought he would be the valencia county hero.

There were soft tissue injuries and fractures to Garys Gabaldons chest. White blood cells made it to the scene of the injuries before death. Gary suffured rib fractures and hemorraging, he was able to survive 45 minutes afterwards pain and injuries sent Gabaldon into shock. Rescue personnel were unable to treat this incident that is why he was airlifted to unm hospital where he died. He was then taken to FBI crime lab for an autopsy and toxicology. Luke Sanchez thought he would be able to carry out this murder as a hero and never expected the mass media attention.

Alcohol definately altered Gabaldons ability to funcion, both in his muscular and motor coordination and in his ability to perceive and appreciate the significance of his surroundings. Sanchez took advantage of this and had Gabaldon killed for Reyna Trujillo, Gabaldons ex-girlfriend and mother of his child.

roadster2000, if you have accurate access to the autopsy report then I thank you very much for what you have posted. For it does indeed cause serious reasons to require a full trial of Sanchez for the murder of Gabaldon. and I think the public does have a right to a full trial that will examine all the evidence. After all, Sanchez' supporters
seem proud of vigilante aspects of this case. We just must not condone THAT.

This information comes from a person who apparently has spent time in a rubber room in a straight jacket.

Do you call yourself Calvary Mom because you and your kids attend Calvary Chapel? Are you part of that clan? I had thought they behaved more like Christians than what you wrote.

Soft landing is a nutcase that likes to post under different names and the bad thing is she talks and flirts with herself. So, really we can't take anything she says serious in anyway. She is Sybil!!!!For some reason she doesn't like Luke and constantly puts him down, no matter what you say to prove her wrong.. She must be a relative to Gary..

You can't stand anyone that disagrees with you and your opinions, you believe what you want, not the truth. You don't seem interested in the truth, just your version of it that matches your opinion. Do you really believe someone that sounds that crazy? You believe that person has microscopes for eyeballs and saw white blood cells traveling to the scene of an injury? Or maybe they have x-ray vision and saw rib fractures? I don't believe that poster was there or knows anymore than the rest of the public does.

And if a few innocent people get beaten to within an inch of their lives (or maybe murdered) because the vigilantes made a mistake, well, that's OK with you?

Yeah, let's round up the lynch mobs, people. Let's throw out the American justice system that's worked for 230 years, and replace it with something that resembles the Taliban. Great idea. How soon can we have a theocracy, or a bunch of warlords, or one of those other wonderful types of governments?

Maybe, just maybe, some of you should learn a bit of civics before you post your worthless drivel here.

No, you cannot read well; I carefully said "If you are posting accurately..." than sentence started with an IF.
It's amazing how hard you work to insult me, Marine, yet must make up this crap such as I believed it. I showed I was skeptical, by using the if...then form.

You must have such low self esteem to work so hard to to insult me, and still have to lie about me to do it. I won't be making the decision about your friend Sanchez. You don't have to prove me wrong. But perhaps you feel less frightened if you lie and then try to disparage me because of the lies you've told. I just think your lies damage the reputation of the Marines, since you might actually be an ex-Marine. Just like Sanchez' vigilante behavior damages the Marines. If he was well trained, why didn't he wait for back-up?
I really do think you are disgusting, and that a close relative of mine who was a Marine who survived Iwo Jima in WWII would be ashamed and embarrassed by you too.And he was tough. but I'm sure he would hve behaved better than Sanchez did had been in Sanchez' position when he saw the robbery. Go suck on your pacifyer, and console yourself--- because everyone who thinks Sanchez should be tried, also thinks he'll get off, or only get a suspended sentence, worst case. Suck on that pacifyer, and quit lying about what I wrote, disgusting embarrassment to the Corps.

Unfortunately most of them seem to have slept through high school civics. But I don't think they care to learn. They are too wound up in their warped mistaken sense of entitlement to behave as vigilantees. He called in what he saw. Then I so wish Sanchez had used good sense and gone home via different route. or waited for the robbers to get way ahead before he took the same road home. Maybe Sanchez wishes that too, now.

It must suck to be you, having nothing of substance to contribute, so you get your jollies making up lies about me. "Flying in the Wind" was changed to Farting in the wind by those who got sick of your worthless comments, now "In Flight" may become "In Spite" .
