SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — An explosive day in the courtroom as opening statements began in the trial of Luis Bracamontes- the undocumented immigrant accused of killing two deputies in 2014.

A judge ordered the jury out of the room, during an outburst by the defendant as he admitted to murdering the peace officers. Bracamontes said there’s no need for a trial, but the judge ruled it will still go on.

“There was no need to prove all this s***,” Bracamontes said. “Be silent!” the judge yelled back.

“I want to f***ing plead to this,” the defendant responded.

As if the smiles and smirks coming from the accused cop killer’s face weren’t shocking enough, the outbursts from Luis Bracamontes stunned the courtroom, first calling one of his alleged victims a coward, before yelling expletives while describing the fact that he killed the officers and didn’t regret it. Bracamontes also said he wished he would have killed more.

“I killed f***ing cops. They’re f***ing dead. I don’t f***ing regret that,” he said, while laughing.

The undocumented immigrant is accused of murdering Sacramento County Sheriff’s Deputy Danny Oliver and then Placer County Sheriff’s Detective Mike Davis, Jr. during a crime spree that also included carjacking and other shooting victims in October of 2014.

As the prosecution laid out the horrific details, Bracamontes continued to laugh—a mental state his lawyers asked the judge to re-evaluate. The request was denied, as were CBS13’s requests to speak with both the families of the victims and Bracamontes.

The defense told the jury its client is responsible for both deputy’s deaths but also claimed he was high on methamphetamine at the time and didn’t know right from wrong. But in another outburst, Bracamontes warned the courtroom and our CBS13 cameras, that he would do it again, saying, “I will break out soon and I will kill more.”

Court resumes Wednesday with the presentation of evidence. The judge told the jury it needs to render its verdict on the evidence it hears, not on the outbursts by Bracamontes.

    This story is nowhere to be found on CNN. They protect illegals by not reporting. Shame on them!

  2. Whatever happened to the concept of capital punishment for confessed killers? There is a very low recidivism rate for killers given capital punishment, so it must be effective!

  3. Mike Arvand says:

    Aaahhh.. Ca. Where an illegal criminal has more rights and privileges than a US citizen. Where skin color (as long as it’s not white) gives you advantages no (white) person could possibly refuse. And killing people (as long as their either white or American) is pretty much no longer a crime.

  4. Emm Are Kay says:

    California will probably spend millions defending this POS. Isn’t there any hungry sharks off the coast of Sacramento?

  5. Rick Fischer says:

    How often was he deported and came back? How often was he protected by the ‘sanctuary’? How many other crimes has he committed? How many other victims? Why is none of that reported?

    Another Democrat Dreamer…

    Brought to you by the DimoRats.

    1. Round them all up and send them back to where they came from and if they dont want to go back home then give them a pic and shovel and make them build on the wall that will keep them out.

  8. David Teglas says:

    Build a wall around California ! Progressive liberals destroyed a once great state.

  9. Dani Areus says:

    This points out the desperate need for citizen vigilante committees to counter the liberal judges and politicians who reward & protect psychopath predators.

  10. Liberals still want to give him “one more chance” .

  11. This guy is quickly becoming a rock star to the voters of California.

  12. Bill Wingard says:

    This guy is my newest Fav cop killer Ever!

  13. The judge told the jury it needs to render its verdict on the evidence it hears, not on the outbursts by Bracamontes. So I quess you can’t even plead guilty in California anymore.

  14. Now that he is a cult figure perhaps the citizens of California will vote him governor.

  15. Tim Rafferty says:

    Liberal judge~ ” The judge told the jury it needs to render its verdict on the evidence it hears, not on the outbursts by Bracamontes.”
