When Boston police received an emergency call to go check on an emergency situation at the multimillion dollar high security condo owned by Dr. Richard Field, they found the doctor and his fiance dead, hands tied and throats slit. They were a little too late to prevent their murders.
However, the alleged murderer was still inside the condo with a backpack full of jewelry. Police shot and wounded the individual, later identified as an African immigrant who worked sometimes as a security guard in spite of having a conviction for bank robbery.
America’s love of immigrants has no bounds, it seems.
The grounds for deporting a legal immigrant aren’t that complicated, as laid out at Mass Legal Help. Theft that results in at least a one year sentence can get a legal immigrant deported.
For committing two bank robberies in 2014, the accused double murderer Texiera was sentenced by liberal Judge Lisa Grant to 9 months in jail, far short of what he should have gotten and far short of what is legally required for deportation.
Let’s pick up the story with the bank robberies and then move to the murders.
The man charged today with the slaughters of two prominent doctors in their South Boston penthouse Friday night told a bank teller in 2014 “I’ll start shooting people” if she didn’t give him $1,000, according to court documents.
Though no weapon was shown, the teller at Citizens Bank on Summer Street complied with Bampumim “JJ” Teixeira’s terrifying demand on Aug. 28, 2014, court records state.
Teixeira, 30, who was arrested for the crime last year by the FBI Bank Robbery Task Force while living at a Chelsea rooming house, was formally charged this morning with the murders of engaged anesthesiologists Drs. RIchard Field and Lina Bolanos.
It remains unclear when and where Teixeira will be arraigned. He remains hospitalized this morning with multiple gunshot wounds police say he suffered in a shootout when they tried to enter the couple’s Dorchester Avenue condo. No officers were hit.
During an interview with police following his arrest last year for the 2016 robbery, court records state, Teixeira told police he was also wanted for the 2014 robbery of the same bank.
“Mr. Teixeira advised detectives that he knew he was wanted by police because he viewed his picture on the Mass Most Wanted website.” records sstate. “Mr. Teixeira was shown the (wanted) bulletin and he advised detectives that was him.”
In the June 2016 case, according to court records, a well-dressed Teixeira walked into the Citizens Bank branch and without ever brandishing a weapon threatened, “5,000 or I’ll shoot you and everybody here now.”
“In fear of being harmed,” a police report states the teller handed Teixeira $212 and a dye pack. Investigators later recovered his white shirt and black fedora hat from a trash bin at the MBTA Chauncey Street Station.
Police said Teixeira used his Charlie Card to make his getaway.
Police later determined that Teixeira worked for a security company whose clients included the Court Square Press Condominiums on West Broadway in South Boston.
Teixeira agreed on Sept. 30 to plead guilty to two counts of larceny and was sentenced to 9 months plus three years probation. He was credited with the 78 days he’d already served behind bars awaiting the resolution of his cases, and he waived applying for parole.
Teixeira is currently on probation until October 2019. At the Probation Department’s request, a warrant was issued this morning for Teixeira’s arrest.
Well, that sentence was a fiasco. Judge Lisa Grant, a longtime defense attorney with no obvious qualifications to hold a judgeship, has blood on her hands.
JJ certainly was contributing to the “nation of immigrants” nonsense that liberals always spew when anyone challenges the wisdom of turning the country over to people like him. Living in shelters? Really?
What more do we know about this fine example of American immigration policy under Obama?
Teixeira told his ex-girlfriend that he was “born in Guinea-Bissau and raised in Cape Verde by an aunt, with whom he moved to the Boston area when he was in his 20s… After a falling out with the aunt, he lived in shelters,” The Boston Globe reported.
Guinea-Bissau is an impoverished country in West Africa with a cashew farming driven economy, reports BBC, and it’s considered one of the poorest countries in the world.
According to the UK Daily Mail, the suspect’s “arrest warrant issued in 2016 for armed robbery is stamped with ‘alien warning given.’”
A talk show host with WRKO AM 680 in Massachusetts questioned why Teixeira was still in the country after the bank robberies, criticizing the fact that Teixeira was not deported after those crimes.
The last moments of the doctors were horrific. Field made a last-ditch, frantic effort to get help by texting a friend.
According to the Boston Globe, Field “managed to send a last text message from his luxury apartment in South Boston on Friday night: a plea to a friend for help.”
At 8:38 p.m., police received a call from the front desk of the penthouse describing a call they received from a friend of Field’s, the prosecutor said in court. According to the prosecutor, the friend said Field had sent a text message that was a “plea for help” shortly after 8 p.m. on May 5, requesting that police be notified because there was a gunman in the apartment, and it was a “serious situation.” There was a second 911 call to operations of the Boston Police Department that came from the same friend of both victims, imparting the same information.
However, when police arrived at the condo, they discovered the couple dead with their throats slit, the Globe reported. WCVB also reported: “Sources tell WCVB the victims had their throats slashed.”
In court, the prosecutor did not specifically confirm that. “Both were bound, both were deceased, having sustained obvious trauma,” the prosecutor said. “Just inside the apartment door, a black backpack was located…inside of that backpack was filled with jewelry, presumably belonging to Ms. Bolanos.”
According to Universal Hub, Field owned the condo where the couple was found, and they were engaged to be married.
Texeira was charged with murder while still in the hospital recovering from his gunshot wounds. Watch.
