Arturo Tapia Salazar Guilty of Beating, Choking Out Baby Momma Who Sought Child Support

A 44-year-old who beat and strangled his former girlfriend after she asked for money to care for their 8-year-old daughter was convicted last week.

Arturo Tapia Salazar pleaded guilty Thursday to second degree murder and was sentenced to 15 years to life in state prison.

Family members found Maria Cristina Ramirez-Diaz on the garage floor of an apartment in the 13000 block of Fairview Avenue in Garden Grove around 4:30 p.m. on Oct. 15, 2010. Salazar was still home when Garden Grove Police officers arrived. He was arrested at the scene.

Salazar, who had previously moved out of the apartment and relocated to Santa Ana, had a prior romantic relationship with Ramirez, who bore him an 8-year-old daughter. The mother demanded cash to help raise her when Salazar beat and strangled the woman to death.

Good thing he wasn't an inbred trailer park white trash, otherwise, he would not have been arrested and would have received the Repubican nomination for President.  Another example of how the white majority is trying to hold on to its inevitable demise in the face of growing numbers of superior races.  Seig heil.

There are what -- 1.5 to 1.75 million white people in OC, and yet it's been a week or so since we've had a criminal of non-color (not counting the wannabe Vietnamese guy --that's an update).

Come on, at least you can come up with a kiddy diddler or some tatted neo-Nazi gang banger that the real Nazi's would have stood up against the wall. A fading trophy wife who kills her husband who strayed with a younger model? Throw us a bone -- people will begin to think certain groups are more crime prone than others.
