The New York Daily News merely calls him an unlicensed driver while burying the fact he’s a criminal illegal alien way down in the story.
The unlicensed driver accused of drunkenly barreling through a group of cyclists in Brooklyn says he hopes the woman he left in a coma can forgive him.
Abel Antonio Pina-Morocho pleaded for sympathy Wednesday during an exclusive jailhouse interview with the Daily News at the Brooklyn Detention Complex, where he’s being held on $250,000 bail.
“When I get out I’ll tell them that I am so sorry,” Pina-Morocho said between sobs.
When he gets out? Deport this piece of human garbage.
The 39-year-old claims a tiff with his girlfriend led him to drown his sorrows in alcohol before getting behind the wheel on Sunday morning.
Prosecutors said he had a blood alcohol level of .266 — over three times the legal limit — when he slammed his Dodge Caravan into a group of bike riders waiting at a red light in Borough Park, injuring five people.
One of the cyclists, 55-year-old Nancy Pease, was severely injured and left in a coma after being pinned under the minivan.
Pease and the others were riding in the NYC Century Bike Tour.
Events like this occur almost daily across the nation, but you’re “racist” to point this stuff out.
The Ecuadorian construction worker’s glum demeanor as he sought forgiveness and sat in jail scrubs was a far cry from his antics immediately after the crash.
On Sunday morning, as Pease was clinging to life and being rushed to Maimonides Medical Center, Pina-Morocho sat in the back of a police car, his eyes half-closed, sticking his tongue out at a News photographer.
Pina-Morocho is facing charges of vehicular assault, drunken driving and driving without a license.
The undocumented immigrant said his experience behind bars has been sobering and led to fears he could be deported if convicted. He’s lived in the U.S. for 18 years.
Language no longer has any meaning, forget the fact it took them 16 paragraphs to properly identify him.
“I like it here,” he said.
Of course he does. He’s been a criminal for at least 18 years and gotten away with it. What a great country!
