Trump Was Right: MS-13 Gang Member Named ‘Animal’ Murdered 15-Year-Old Boy

BOSTON, MA (Associated Press) – A member of MS-13 who earned full membership into the violent gang by killing a 15-year-old boy has been sentenced to 40 years in prison.

Federal prosecutors in Massachusetts say 23-year-old Joel “Animal” Martinez, a native of El Salvador who lived in Boston, was sentenced Tuesday.

He pleaded guilty in December to a racketeering conspiracy, which included the September 2015 slaying of 15-year-old Irvin Javier de Paz Castro.

Prosecutors say Martinez acknowledged being associated with MS-13 and bragged about the stabbing in a secretly recorded conversation, saying: “He stared at me and he asked me if I was going to, if I was going to stab him. I told him, ‘Yes, the Mara rules you.'”

His lawyer argued for less prison time, saying Martinez was forced to join MS-13.

  1. Love that line: Forced to join gang.
    We used to have a teenage volunteer at the elementary school where I worked who lived in the barrio. He refused to join a gang, and instead put his energy into school work. They tried to enlist him, but could not.

  2. Gangs are bad news they are bad for youths and any gang member who commits murder should be eligible for the Death Penalty

  3. Deport the scum to Hell by way of the Hangman’s Noose. Let his execution show these vermin what awaits them; the long drop to the end of the rope. No mercy for these animals, as they have taken another child from his family.
