Edgar Samaniego Was Ripped Off By His Own Tattoo Artist!
Edgar Samaniego was born and raised in Mexico. In his early years he decided to become a police officer. It was then he decided that he would like to be a police officer for the United States of America. On this day in 2020, he was commissioned by New York City Police Department. He was twenty-three years old at the time.
On this day, Edgar samaniego was attempting to arrest a suspect in a stolen motorcycle. The suspect had fled to Florida. Edgar Samaniego, while adjusting his police gear, thought he heard a loud crash. When he got to the scene he found a man lying in the road. It was Samaniego’s partner in crime.
Police officers arrived at the scene and Samaniego ordered the suspect to get out on the sidewalk. As the suspect got out of the car, he began to assault the officers. One of the officers used his taser gun to subdue the suspect. Before the other police officers could get the man to the ground, Samaniego arrived and shot the man through the skull. The officers arrested him and took him to the precinct holding cells.
After the shooting, the suspect ran away. Police searched for him for several hours but were unable to find him. Eventually one of the arresting detectives noticed some inconsistencies with the suspect’s story. The suspect had said that he had been at a bar that evening with two other men when in reality he had been in a motel room. This information helped to piece together the events of what happened prior to the shooting.
Samaniego was immediately fired from the police department for shooting an unarmed suspect. At first, he claimed that he had been shot in the foot but later changed his story and said that he had been shot in the head. In addition, Samaniego maintained that he had been pepper-sprayed by the police officer, while the video footage showed that the incident occurred at point blank range.
On June 8, a grand jury decided not to indict Samaniego on murder charges. Instead the grand jury declined to indict him on the second-degree felony charge of solicitation. The Las Vegas Police Department also declined to press charges against Samaniego. The city of Las Blackjack Vegas released a statement saying, “The decision was made based on the evidence we had in hand. We take the view that there is insufficient evidence to justify a conviction on the basis of the information that we have reviewed.”
On June 9, the suspect was released on bail after posting ten thousand dollars bond. Detectives were not sure if he had any history of violence. He was not free to leave the house. Detectives were not sure if he had hired a lawyer or not, but they wanted to be sure, so they arranged for him to be picked up from his house the next day and taken to the station where he would be booked for questioning by the investigating detectives.
Investigators believe that Samaniego was either trying to get his or her life back together, or trying to avoid serving time in jail, since he was a convicted felon with a record. There is one very interesting fact that came out during questioning. Samaniego was the one who tipped off the cops to the huge drug ring that was being run out of his home through his garage. Apparently, he had purchased the ring from an undercover cop and sold it to the police, for ten thousand dollars.
