A Gang Killed "Kiki"

Crime & PunishmentAlthough some are trying to give a political tint to the assassination of President of the Partido Revolucionario Democratico (PRD), in the village of Jose Domingo Espinar, Gilberto "Kiki" Pinzon, the investigation indicates this was an action of gangs operating in San Miguelito. PRD factions, led by Deputy Raul Pineda and his opponents Kathy Ramos and her husband Juan Ramon Messina, accused one another yesterday of having launched death threats, but initial investigations ruled out that a political assassin might have been involved in the murder of Gilberto "Kiki" Pinzon. Investigators are delving into Pinzon's history to determine the motive for the shooting attack that also injured the professor Aneth Pinzon, the sister of Congressman Pineda. Gilbert Pinzon had been apprehended with a 9mm Luger pistol and eight live rounds of ammunition, but the delegate of the Auxiliary Prosecutor in San Miguelito had to release him, because ballistics claimed the gun had no firing pin. (Critica)

Editor's Comment: That's a new one. I hadn't heard the "no firing pin" gambit before. I guess that's the trick or technique used to get a political operative out of jail when they get arrested with an illegal weapon. Just drop a few dollars here or there and "presto" - he gets released because (supposedly) the weapon was inoperative. It's slick, because practically no police officer would ever check to see if the firing pin was present at the time of the arrest, to the point of including that detail in his report. This is so obviously an "out" used for political reasons, it's ridiculous.
