Illegal Alien Accused of Killing Cop Files Lawsuit Claiming ‘Disability’ Over Not Speaking English

Published February 22, 2024

An illegal alien who is accused of killing a police officer has filed a federal civil rights lawsuit after suddenly claiming he has a “disability.”

Wait until you hear what his so-called “disability” is.

Illegal migrant Virgilio Aguilar-Mendez is playing the victim card and claiming that his inability to speak English should be considered a disability and a reason for the justice system to take it easy on him despite killing an officer.

The 19-year-old illegal Guatemalan was arrested in May 2023 after allegedly causing the tragic death of St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Michael Kunovich. He was charged with resisting an officer with violence and manslaughter.

As the officer was trying to pat Aguilar-Mendez down, he attempted to flee. Soon after, several officers arrived to help assist the arrest. As Aguilar-Mendez continued to resist, Kunovich tackled the illegal migrant to the ground, struggling to contain him. Aguilar Mendez attempted to take the officer’s taser from his belt.

The struggle lasted for more than six minutes. After other officers handcuffed Aguilar Mendez, Kunovich collapsed and fell to the ground. First responders tried to save his life, but he was pronounced dead shortly after being rushed to a nearby hospital.

His attorneys claim that their client— who conveniently speaks neither English nor Spanish— was denied his rights under the “Americans with Disabilities Act” and the “Rehabilitation Act.”

Aguilar Mendez’s lawyers claim his limited ability to speak or understand English and Spanish constituted a disability

A Guatemalan migrant who is accused of killing a police officer last year is now leading a lawsuit against the deceased deputy’s estate, another law enforcement officer and the county, alleging he was the victim.

Virgilio Aguilar Mendez, 19, was charged with aggravated manslaughter of an officer after a scuffle involving several law enforcement officers in May 2023 left one of them dead. Attorneys representing Aguilar Mendez filed a new federal civil rights lawsuit Thursday, seeking compensatory damages from the incident as they claim the officers violated their client’s civil rights.

According to the legal filing, St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Michael Kunovich, who died as a result of the incident, and Lt. Jose Jimenez, another responding deputy, acted inappropriately in mistreating the migrant with multiple violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Florida Times-Union reported.

The lawyers specifically claim Aguilar Mendez’s limited ability to speak or understand English and Spanish constituted a disability. They allege he was also denied an interpreter at the scene and at the Sheriff’s Office, which would have allowed him to understand his Miranda rights.

Attorney Phillip Arroyo is representing Aguilar Mendez and his family. High-profile attorney Jose Baez has also joined his defense. The lawyers said their client primarily speaks Mam, a Guatemalan language.

The ADA describes physical or mental impairments that limit one or more major life activities but does not specifically name all the impairments that are covered.

The St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office told Fox News Digital in a statement: “Our agency has no record of receiving notice of a lawsuit regarding this case.”

Fox News Digital also reached out to Aguilar Mendez’s defense but did not immediately receive a response.

Why do CO2 lag behind temperature?

71% of the earth is covered by ocean, water is a 1000 times denser than air and the mass of the oceans are 360 times that of the atmosphere, small temperature changes in the oceans doesn’t only modulate air temperature, but it also affect the CO2 level according to Henry’s Law.

The reason it is called “Law” is because it has been “proven”!

“.. scientific laws describe phenomena that the scientific community has found to be provably true ..”

That means, the graph proves CO2 do not control temperature, that again proves (Man Made) Global Warming, now called “Climate Change” due to lack of … Warming is – again – debunked!
