  1. I am so happy to know that at least there will be justice for Jaime Zapata, although that is no comfort for his family and loved ones...the person who did this horrible crime is what I call "scum of the earth", and deserves a firing squad, without benefit of a blindfold so he can watch as he's brought to final justice! That may sound cruel, but it's no more cruel than what he did, all for the purposes of gangsters!
