San Francisco is one of the most famous cities of America famous for the Golden Gate bridge, it’s magnificent architecture, beautiful weather and warm people. Last year the city received approximately 24.6 million tourists and generated $2025 in taxes per household in the city.
However, after a recent decision on a case the city might slump to one of the least visited in the entire USA. Kate Steinle was walking down a pier in San Francisco with her father and a family friend when she was shot by a man named Jose Inez Garcia Zarate. Steinle breathed her last in the arms of her father.
Zarate was arrested and charged with Steinle’s murder. However, according to Zarate the gun fire was an accident. Zarate had apparently found the gun lying around and during his walk down the pier it fired and the bullet ricocheted from the concrete of the pier surface before hitting Steinle.
Zarate was an undocumented immigrant in the United States of America and was tried for first and second degree murder along with charges of involuntary manslaughter and assault with a semi-automatic weapon. However, the jury adjudged him not guilty of any of the charges expect for possessing firearm by felon.
The decision did not go down well with people who started to tweet with #BoycottSanFrancisco to revolt against the decision made on Steinle’s murder. The first to tweet on the decision was none other than President Donald Trump who yet again raised his voice for building a wall.
The trend went viral and people came out against the decision in large numbers. The decision has also sparked a fresh debate on immigrants residing in the United States of America illegally. After the decision it was reported that Zarate would be deported to his country.
The case will surely feed Trump’s ambition of building a wall along the Mexico border and going with the recent trends the wall may become a reality soon.
