Sadly, the former California governor did not show any sympathy when he was asked this week about his decision to shorten the sentence of Esteban Nuñez, the criminal spawn of former California Assembly speaker Fabian Nuñez. Schwarzenegger made a “snoring noise” when asked about this now controversial decision, and said, “Don’t ask me the same question, O.K., because otherwise you’re boring the hell out of me.”
The Wave Newspaper reports:
“The father of a murdered college student said he’s outraged that former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger made a snoring noise when asked about his decision to shorten the sentence of his son’s killer, whose father is a former Assembly speaker, it was reported Saturday.
Schwarzenegger made a snoring sound on Thursday, when he was asked about his last-minute commutation for Esteban Nunez, the son of former Democratic Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez of Los Angeles, who fatally stabbed Luis Santos outside a San Diego State fraternity party in 2008.
“[Schwarzenegger's] arrogant and insensitive,” Luis Santos’ father, Fred Santos, who lives in the East Bay suburb of Concord, told the Contra Costa Times.”
Esteban Nuñez also received some positive comments from Mayor Villaraigosa if you recall.
I sense that even Schwarzenegger realizes that the public won’t forget about his decision to ease up on the Esteban Nuñez sentence. And should Fabian Nuñez ever run for public office again, this issue will certainly to be a thorn in his side.
