Three young men accused of killing a man with a revolver stolen from a police officer’s vehicle pleaded not guilty Thursday to a series of felonies related to a spree of shootings and robberies in San Francisco.

Daniel Cruz, 18, Erick Garcia Pineda, 18, and 24-year-old Jesus Perez-Araujo appeared in court for their arraignment Thursday at the Hall of Justice. The trio stood alongside Spanish interpreters in orange jumpsuits as the family of the victim, 23-year-old Abel Enrique Esquivel, Jr., looked on.

The case has drawn attention to the epidemic of car break-ins in San Francisco because the murder weapon is a firearm stolen from the personal vehicle of a city police officer. This is the second time that a law enforcement officer’s stolen weapon has been used in a recent homicide in San Francisco.

Further down



Kwixuan Maloof, an attorney with the Public Defender’s Office who is representing Perez-Araujo, does not know whether the gun was secured but said “the fact that it was stolen out of a car probably means that it was not secure.”

Guns stolen from vehicles put everybody in danger and nobody knows this better than the police,” Maloof said. “There’s information that a police officer had his gun stolen, and if that police officer did not secure his gun, he or she should be accountable.”

It's the cop's fault.

The three needed interpreters and are being defended by a minority public defender. My opinion is that these three are illegals. However, because its San Francisco, ICE will never get close to them. SF wouldn't honor ICE detainers anyway.

They'll be found not guilty like Kate Steinle's killer.
