Cop killer: "I wish I'd killed more of the motherf***ers"

Luis Bracamontes is seen smiling in the courtroom during opening statements

As prosecutor Rod Norgaard was describing the allegations to the jury, Bracamontes laughed, saying, "I don't fucking regret that shit". He also stared at the dead deputies' families.

He's charged with killing both deputies, shooting a motorist in the head to steal his auto and wounding another Placer County deputy. "I will break out soon, and I will kill more", Luis Bracamontes unapologetically told a judge Tuesday. "There's no need for a [expletive] trial", Bracamontes said, reported the Sacramento Bee.

After the juries returned to the courtroom, the judge reminded them that they were not to consider Bracamontes' outbursts when they finally deliberate the case.

"Please take him away", the judge told deputies, who escorted the heavily shackled prisoner away. Bracamontes directed some of his cursing toward his brother on the stand as he was removed from the courtroom.

Bracamontes defense attorneys used his rant in court as a talking point, saying he is mentally unfit and cannot stand on trial.

"We believe Mr. Bracamontes' outbursts, his laughter, are a function of his mental illness...", Barbour said.

White told Bracamontes he had the right to attend court but could not continue to disrupt proceedings and had him removed.

Bracamontes, who is in the country illegally, spent most of the trial's opening day with a smile on his face, at times breaking out into fits of giggles as prosecutors described the gunfire exchange on October 24, 2014.

Trump in 'excellent health', scores 30/30 in cognitive assessment
The two Republican senators originally told the press that they did not recall what Trump said. Bush's second term and was kept on by both the Obama and Trump administrations.

Bracamontes, 37, an illegal immigrant from Mexico, is on trial along with his wife, Janelle Monroy, 41.

The man already requested the death penalty as punishment but in the meantime is having his say when it comes to the murder of the two cops.

But his defence lawyers hope Bracamontes will avoid the death penalty due to the fact that after his arrest a blood test found an "excessively high" amount of methamphetamine in his system that may have made him paranoid.

He eventually crawled out of the house with a suicide note that asked God for forgiveness. His wife, who is an American citizen, faces life in prison if she is convicted.

"The evidence is going to show that this woman who loved this man and was married to him for years was stuck in a vehicle with a insane person", the lawyer said.

In the Sacramento Superior Court on Tues. morning, the suspect's public defender, Jeffrey Barbour, said he didn't claim that Bracamontes was innocent.

President Donald Trump has weighed in on the case, mentioning it during a speech to Congress a year ago and introducing the widow of one of the slain deputies.
