|83rd TX Lege: SB-80 — Because What State Employees Need Most is More Paid Holidays||IDF Kills Hamas Leader as Things Heat Up in Gaza|
UPDATE: He’s dead, Jim.
Hernandez, 39, told a family member he was “sorry for putting you through all this” after a warden asked if he wanted to make a final statement.
“Tell everybody I love them,” the condemned inmate said, directing his words at his brother who was standing nearby and watching through a window.
Glancing briefly at relatives of his victim, Hernandez said: “I’m very sorry for all the pain.” Then he urged other prisoners on death row to “keep fighting; don’t give up.”
He took several breaths as the lethal dose of pentobarbital took effect, then began snoring quietly. Within a minute, all movement stopped.
His time of death was announced as 6:38 p.m. CST, which was 26 minutes after the drug started to be released into his body.

I almost forgot that we had an execution today in Texas. But I’m glad I remembered, because this sick, evil animal is one of the most vile pieces of shit to sit on death row I’ve ever seen. He left a wake of terror, death, and destruction every single place he stepped foot in this life, and the world will be a much better and much safer place once he’s gone from it (which will be in about 10 hours from this posting).
The crime for which he is officially being executed for is vile and evil enough:
On March 31, 2001, in San Antonio, Texas, Hernandez and two of his buddies ( his girlfriend Asel Abdygapparova and Santos Minjarez), were driving down the road when they saw 37-year old single mother Rosa Maria Rosado sitting at a bus stop by herself. Minjarez tried to grab her purse, but when she resisted, they pulled her into their car. They then drove to Hernandez’ house to get duct tape with which to bind and gag Rosado.
They then drove her to a motel where Hernandez and Minjarez raped Rosado before strangling her to death.
And in case that wasn’t evil enough, Hernandez told his girlfriend — while Rosado was still alive, being beaten and raped — to go to the store and buy a shovel with which they could use to bury Rosado’s dead body. I cannot even imagine the fear this poor woman must have felt, knowing she would never she her children again.
After they killed her, they drove her body to a wooded area and buried her in a shallow grave.
When she was arrested, Abdygapparova, a master’s student from Kazakhstan, confessed every thing to the police and led them to the buried body as well as to the motel where they raped and killed Rosado. During the trial, Abdygapparova testified against her boyfriend.
Prior Criminal Record
Like I said, if this were the only crime this animal ever committed, it would still justify the death penalty. But, sadly, we know that there is much, much more.
On the night that he murdered Rosado, he was out on parole after serving just a few years on an 18-year sentence for 3 counts of Burglary of a Habitation with Intent to Commit Theft. During one of those home invasions, he also raped a 21-year old woman who was unfortunate enough to be home, but lucky to still be alive. He was released to parole on June 11, 1993.
The following year — while he was still supposed to be in prison, if it wasn’t for our bullshit legal system that routinely puts dangerous animals back onto the streets without serving their time for horrific crimes — Hernandez raped and murdered two middle school girls, Sarah Gonzales (12) and her cousin Priscilla Almares (13). The girls were abducted in San Antonio in December 1994. The next day, their bodies were found in the brush by a road. Both had been raped, brutally beaten in the face and head, and strangled to death. An anal swab of Gonzales found sperm, but a vaginal slide found none. A 2001 test showed Hernandez’s DNA was a match.
That’s right — he anally raped a young girl before murdering her and dumping her body on the side of the road.
I can only hope that Satan spends the rest of eternity doing the same to Hernandez.
On top of all that, officials in Bandera County south of San Antonio also considered him a prime suspect in the deaths of teens Jennifer Taylor and Laura Gamez, who disappeared a month before Gonzales and Almares. Their bodies were discovered on a ranch belonging to Hernandez’ uncle in Bandera County one year after they were killed.
I hope his execution is painful. I hope he’s scared shitless and crying like a bitch in his cell right now. I hope nobody comes to visit him. I hope he dies alone and afraid.
Santos Minjarez was also sentenced to death but died of an illness on death row in January 2012.
Abdygapparova, who was five months pregnant with Hernandez’ child at the time of the killing, told authorities she feared for her life and was coerced into taking part. She was sentenced to life in prison and will be eligible for parole in 2045.
We won’t have to wait long for the next execution, either, as Preston Hughes is scheduled for the rare back-t0-back execution tomorrow evening, Hughes was convicted of killing a 15-year-old girl and her three-year-old cousin in 1988.
