Possibly the poster boy as to why America leads the world in prison population, Arturo Macarro Gutierrez has been arrested… again.
In and out of jail at least since 2014, Gutierrez has been picked-up again, but only after the home he was hiding in was stormed by the South Metro SWAT team of the St. Paul Police Department. Even after given the chance to peacefully surrender, which was followed by SWAT popping off teas gas into the structure.
Reportedly armed, Gutierrez was eventually found in the attic hiding under the home’s insulation, as reported by the Twin Cities Pioneer Press.
As reported by KSTP (ABC affiliate for Minneapolis-St Paul);
A 35-year-old St. Paul man is charged with first and second-degree criminal sexual conduct after authorities allege he assaulted a four-year-old and could have transferred a sexually transmitted disease in the process.
Arturo Macarro Gutierrez was charged Monday in Ramsey County.
The criminal complaint alleges the four-year-old complained of pain on Halloween, and told a relative that a man – identified as Gutierrez – had pulled down their pants and hurt them.
After being taken to Children’s Hospital in St. Paul, the child tested positive for gonorrhea.
A forensic sexual assault examination allegedly concluded Gutierrez tested positive for gonorrhea as well.
Not his first go ’round with American jurisprudence, Gutierrez is an old hand at not only the booking procedures, but also the revolving door that is our penal system;
- Arrested on 5/24/2014, Gutierrez was arrested for domestic abuse (AKA: Wife beating)
- Busted on 2/9/1018, he was nabbed for failure to appear (AKA: Telling the judge to go screw himself).
- Picked-up again on 2/27/2018, the repeat offender again was charged with failure to appear (AKA: Telling the judge to screw himself for the second time)
- Hitting the trifecta, the one-man crime spree was snagged on 6/15/2018 for False Info-Name of Another; Domestic Assault; Escape from Custody (AKA: What’s a guy gotta do to prove I love breaking the law?”)
In a sort of related story, seriously, this isn’t from The Onion, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported back in 2016;
SWAT uniforms and equipment will switch from an olive green to dark blue in an attempt to soften the unit’s image amid an ongoing national debate about the militarization of local police departments.
Officials hope the change will “address public perception of the militarized look,” Cmdr. Scott Gerlicher said in a memo to SWAT team members on Monday.
The change was among the recommendations made by President Obama’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing, created after several unarmed black men were killed by white police officers. It suggested that police could “minimize confrontation” by wearing “soft look” uniforms and “having officers remove riot gear as soon as practical, and maintaining open postures.”
