Anthony Garcia, Dumb-Ass Cholo, Convicted for Cold-Case Murder Because Chest Tattoo Featured the Murder Scene

Categories: Crime-iny
anthony_garcia_rivera.jpg
Cholos aren't exactly the brightest bulbs in the criminal marquee, but the actions of the pendejo at right take the tamale for sheer stupidity.

Anthony Garcia was a seeming run-of-the-mill hood when Los Angeles County's sheriffs arrested him for a routine traffic stop and took the snapshot at right. In 2008, an investigator randomly saw Garcia's photo and recognized the elaborate scene depicted as the exact scene of a 2004 murder in Pico Rivera that had long been declared a cold case--until the investigator saw Garcia's tattoo and figured it out.

The Los Angeles Times has the rest of this incredible story, with the local angle being detectives eventually tracked Garcia to La Habra, where he lived with relatives. He bragged about the murder to someone wearing a wire, and just got convicted of first-degree murder--all of this avoidable if he hadn't tattooed the damn murder scene on his pinche chest. HILARIOUS...

I have read some of the comments on here and do not understand how just about all has got completely off the subject.This man took someones life and was so bold about it he bragged and had it tattooed on him.It shouldn't matter where you were born or how hard of a life you had,murder is murder.I think that there are alot of good people regardless of race and how hard of a life they had,It is what you choose to do with it and yes we do have choices.There is plenty of places out there that will help you,you just have to want to do better in life.I am not some rich person saying this,I work at a fastfood restaurant so no I don't make alot of money.He needs to pay for what he has done and yes the sad part is my hardworking tax money will be put toward paying for his sorry butt.

I DONT THINK WE SHOULD FEEL BAD FOR THIS DUMB ASS OR ANY HUMAN BEING THAT HAS COMMITED MURDER. BUT I DO THINK WE SHOULD SEE THE BACK GROUND AND MAYBE THE REASON HE TURNED OUT HOW HE DID IS BEACAUSE HE GREW UP IN AN DISFUNCTIONAL FAMILY. PERHAPS ALL HE KNEW WAS THE STREET LIFE MAYBE BEACAUSE HIS PARENTS DONT GIVE A SHIT ABOUT WAT HE HAD DONE N STILL WILL DO!REGARDLESS OF THAT I KNOW PLENTY OF LOW LIFES THAT ARE WHITE AND HAVE NO JOBS, ADDICTS, FREE LOAD OFF WELFARE, GOVERNMENT MONEY, AND HAVE NO HOMES! WE ARE ALL HUMAN BEINGS ONLY THING SEPARATING US IS OUR DIFFRENCES N PRIDE. EVRYONE HAS STUPIDITY AND I WOULDNT TALK SHIT ABOUT SOMEONE BEACAUSE I MIGHT BE TALKING TOO QUICK! U NEVER KNW SOMEONE IN YOUR FAMILY MIGHT JUST FUCK UP AND YOU MIGHT JUST IN THE PLACE OF THESE PARENTS!UR KIDS MIGHT TURN OUT AS BAD AS THIS HISPANIC GANG MEMBER OR WORST!!DONT JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER!!

Seriously, I dont understand how this became about race. There are a lot of different races that are just as stupid as this guy. He was stupid enough to tattoo his crime on his chest just like a lot of other morons. I am a TATTOO artist here in LAS VEGAS and trust me I get white boys coming in saying I want this image on my back. When I ask what it means turns out its a mural of all the people he killed in his gang banging days. I have more stories where that came from. We aren't in the 1930's anymore get over it.

what is important in relation to the guilt of the criminal is not the tattoo portraying the image of the crime. there is no implication of guilt there. the guilt comes from the confession which was audio taped. no one can say that this guy was convicted because of a tattoo. he was convicted because he couldn't keep his mouth shut. after all, you cant take a tattoo into a court of law and expect a conviction. the lapd know that. why else would they tape his confession. this story should be a reminder: keep your mouth shut.

Did you really need to post more fodder for the racist trolls? We all saw this in the LA Times already.

Nope, just the spic that did it.  How does him being a mexican have ANYTHING to do with it?  Oh, wait, somebody pointed out that a mexican did something wrong.  They MUST be racist.  Get over it and quit feeling sorry for yourself.  It's not OUR fault you are a spic.

Actually, Jethro, we're laughing at you. All of us. Every single one. It's amazing what generations of people sleeping with their siblings can produce. In your case that would be a walking turd barely able to form a thought other than "I want to suck Glenn Beck's wee wee."

You shouldn't rely on the internet to translate for you, it doesn't really work.So either learn Spanish or stick to the language for gay people, as Irene so poetically put it.

it was the tattoo that ultimately got him caught. there's a tat he can be proud of for the rest of his stinking f*cking life in prison. I don't know why we keep wasting tax $'s on these murderers, sentence them to death and get it done in a timely manner, not sitting on death row for 20 yrs, wastin the tax payers money.

he was convicted because he was stupid. Besides that, he killed somebody.

Hey, genius: the only reason he got in a cell in the first place was because of the tattoo. This should be a reminder: don't commit murder.

Im pretty sure those tattoos weren't paid for pal.. and why aren't you at work right now since you work so hard... geez... i'm sure you collect some kinds of check.. welfare, disability, social security, if not you then someone in your stinking family.. stop pointing fingers and take the speck out of your own eye..

Well said. Covering crime by Hispanics just gives Hispanics a bad name. How about we focus on racism in the tea party or other such topics?

of course, one should not commit murder. is that the argument of the news article? no. that argument is in the background. i am responding to an explicit argument that is laid out in the title of your piece. this guy wasn't convicted because of what you might call a 'confessional' piece of art, but because of the words that he uttered. and if i'm the genius in this conversation, what role are you playing?

BunnyOle

FUCK you, people who work also have free time shitass, and there are plenty of people in many families who get NO fucking check (which by the way social security for elderly people??  THEY PAID FOR THAT shitbag, that is THEIR money, not free government handout)  Although I am sure you can't IMAGINE that there are some people who are not parasites like these fucking mexicans.

Being born and raised in Los Angeles barrios I can safely say that a lot of Latinos, be they Mexican,Peruvian,Colombian,etc. are just as racist as any KKK member. As a matter of fact all prison gangs have a partnership with Aryan Brotherhood which undoubtedly this maricon supports. On another note it's "Latino" not "Hispanic" which is a made-up word by some moron in the 70's.

Dear Jesus, calling you a vile retard is like calling Hitler antisemitic. Although it's technically correct, it doesn't begin to scratch the surface.Now why don't you run back up your daddy's crack.

I often write in all caps due to extreme hatred, I drive a Volvo, but usually ride a bicycle, I do not wear hats, and I worked in both the legal profession and the brokerage financial industry.  I'm a woman and not gay.   Based on my 'observations' you are 5 feet tall, have 8 kids, and like to fuck your girlfriends 10 year old daughter.

To U2dumb,Interesting...persons who reply in upper case due to extreme hatred maybe should get laid once in a while. Based on my observations you probably drive a black pickup truck, wear a dumb-ass trucker cap, and work in a sheet metal shop or some other hell hole factory where bottom feeders with a 9th grade education can get a job. Also, it is a safe bet you're a closet homosexual. Nothing wrong with that unless you think it is.
