Hernandez is the new poster boy for why the death penalty is essential for a civilized society. He began his violent, murdering ways at a very early age. His escape from a Mexican prison for murder and fleeing to the U.S. is often glossed over, but he was a murderer and an ILLEGAL alien. In this case, the Mexican government has backed away from previous claims involving murderous ILLEGAL aliens that he should be spared.
The victim of Ramiro’s crime was Glen H. Lich, a well respected educator and author from Texas. Dr. Lich was murdered by 10-11 blunt force blows to the head. The following is an obituary published shortly after his funeral:
Kerrville Mountain Sun
October 22, 1997
Glen E. Lich, 48, died October 14, 1997, at his home south of Kerrville. He was born in Fredericksburg.
Lich enjoyed a distinguished career in education and in regional and international affairs. He grew up in the Cypress Creek community in Kerr County, graduated with a Bachelor of Arts from Southwestern University, Masters of Arts from Southwest Texas State University and the University of Texas, and a Doctor of Philosophy from Texas Christian University.
Between 1979 and 1993, he taught at Schreiner College and Baylor university and he held an endowed professorship at the University of Winnipeg. He is the author of numerous books including “The German Texans”, “Fred Gipson at Work” and “The Humanities and Public Issues”, as well as dozens of articles, reviews and reports for journals, handbooks, Congressional publications and national and international conferences.
He also served 26 years in the U.S Army, Army Reserves and National Guard. Between 1993 and 1995, he was instrumental in establishing the Partnership for Peace programs in Romania, Slovenia and the Czech Republic. In 1993, he established the Hill Country Institute, a private consultancy specializing in improving life of the Texas Hill Country through philanthropy, research and leadership.
Dr. Lich is survived by his wife, Lera Tyler Lich, his son, Stephen W. Lich-Tyler, his daughter Elizabeth E. Lich-Tyler, his father, Perry Lich of Cypress Creek, and his sister, Nancy Lich Jones of Cypress Creek.
Funeral services under the direction of Grimes Funeral Chapels, were held Saturday at St. Boniface Episcopal Church in Comfort, with interment at the Cypress Creek Cemetery. Memorials may be made to the Hill Country Project, c/o Ms. Lynn LeMeilleur, 305 Earl Garrett, Kerrville, Texas 78028.
Hernandez took away a gentleman of value and virtue in a brutal fashion. One of Dr. Lich’s books was Fred Gipson at Work. Fred Gipson is best known to many as the author of “Old Yeller.”
Hernandez also sexually brutalized Mrs. Lich repeatedly. Then, while waiting for his murder trial to begin he murdered a female jailer by stabbing her repeatedly with an improvised knife. The jailer has remained unidentified from all available sources.
It appears at this time that all options to halt Ramiro’s execution are exhausted. His attorneys have tried many different approaches, from their appeal in 2006 that he was “retarded,” to the most recent claims that the new pentobarbital should not be used, which the Board of Pardons and Paroles has denied.
I sincerely wish I could find an image of Dr. Lich, but have been unsuccessful. As a result, I will not post an image of the murdering, raping ILLEGAL alien Hernandez. Nothing can alter the pain and suffering of the Lich family, but perhaps Hernandez facing justice for what he has taken can offer some solace.
In just over 24 hours Hernandez will face justice for his crimes and Texas will be just a little safer.
