Jose Montes Guillen

Shortly after 10 p.m. on Friday, Sarah Hale, 21, left the Santa Maria Brewing Company where she used to work as a waitress and got into her car. Along with several other friends, Montes Guillen attempted to stop Hale from driving while intoxicated.

However, Hale drove away knocking Montes Guillen out of her car and onto the pavement. Emergency personnel transported Montes Guillen to Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center where he later died from his injuries.

Montes Guillen’s family has started a GoFundMe page to help with expenses related to his death.

Officers found Hale at her home and arrested her for driving under the influence and felony hit and run. Hale posted bail and was released before Montes Guillen succumbed to his injuries.

I thought that named sounded familiar. He had a short and troubled life.https://pasoroblesdailynews.com/burglary-suspect-flees-through-bedroom-window-when-woman-returns-home/87001/

I wonder if you would have done such extensive research if the victim here was “Jones” or “Smith”, or another typical Anglo-Saxon name. Probably not…

Good grief, are you serious man?

Good grief or not, I’m dead serious MAN!

So, just who are the racists? When race is always at the forefront of one’s thoughts, maybe it’s time for some self examination or were you just trolling? Hopefully the latter.

“Suspected” serial burglar… but it matters not here in the land of the Ultra Right, he’s guilty here by race not by evidence let alone proof!

In October, Jose pleaded no contest to a first-degree burglary charge, according to county court records. He served three months in county jail and was on probation at the time of his death.

looks like an appropriate picture of her.. I hope if and when she sobers up she’ll realize the extent of her problems – now including manslaughter of a friend. Shame
