Remember that murder that happened at an East Oakland taco truck in January 2008?
Abel Martinez Mejia was buying lunch at a taco truck on the corner of 85th St. and San Leandro Ave. in East Oakland, when he was killed in an attempted robbery. Out of solidarity with a fellow taco lover, I donated $10 to his family.
Fortunately the murderers Darryl Hill, 22, and Deandre Hill, 19, who perpetrated this heinous crime were convicted in October on charges of first-degree murder with the special circumstance of committing murder during the course of a robbery.
Last week, according to a report in Bay City News:
Alameda County Superior Court Judge C. Don Clay sentenced Darryl Hill, who shot Martinez Mejia five times, to life in prison without the possibility of parole plus another 25 years to life and sentenced Deandre Hill to life in prison plus 11 years.
I think that these scum should also be sentenced to life without tacos, from trucks or otherwise. Good riddance.
