COSTA RICA --- When news of a 70-year-old US tourist killing a Costa Rican mugger reached San Francisco, officials called for US authorities to seek justice for the mugger and his family since the Cosa Rican officials would not.
"This is an outrage," said Supervisor Chris Daly. "If the Costa Rican authorities won't put this old thug in jail, it's up to federal officials to do it. If an elderly tourist had killed an armed mugger with his bare hands in San Francisco, he'd be in jail right now. Criminals have rights! Especially non-white, non-American criminals. I will not rest until this old man is rotting in prison for his crimes."
