Aging ‘Dreamer’ Murdered Man in Wheelchair
Edwin Andujar (53), an older ‘dreamer,’ used his ability to move freely from Puerto Rico to the United States to murder wheelchair-bound Thomas Parent (59). Andujar, the aging, unemployed dreamer stabbed Parent because Parent asked him to move out of his apartment; Andujar had been living rent-free in Parent’s apartment.
Essex County (NJ) prosecutors said Andujar, “stabbed Thomas Parent twelve times with a steak knife while Parent was in a wheelchair after returning from a rehabilitation center.” Parent suffered stab wounds to his groin, stomach, back, and self-defense wounds on his hands and arms. Parent spent five days on life support before his family made the painful decision to withdraw support; Andujar is still alive.
Surprisingly, local authorities did not shield Andujar from the law because of his skin pigmentation and country of origin; county prosecutors charged and tried Andujar for murder after they located an interpreter. Once Andujar was able to communicate to the court through his interpreter, he entered a plea of not guilty because he claims he acted in self-defense. The jury didn’t buy Andujar’s outlandish self-defense claim. Andujar was found guilty of first-degree murder and sentenced to thirty-eight years in prison, a somewhat lenient sentence for a gruesome crime committed against a man in a wheelchair. Before the presiding judge sentenced Andujar, Andujar said, through his interpreter, he is “really, really sorry for what happened, but unfortunately, things happened, and this happened.” Maybe Andujar’s declaration that things just happen swayed the judge to provide a reduced sentence.
Parent did not have to die. It is the machinations of politicians and bureaucrats that are responsible for countless deaths in the United States. Parent is another example of an American who perished because of open borders and political agendas. Democrats view people like Andujar as Democrat voters. Corporations and the U.S. Chamber of Crony Capitalism regard Andujar and those of his ilk as cheap labor they are willing to pay for via the pay-to-play system created by politicians in Washington, D.C.
