Immigrant Linked To Multiple Crimes - Police Can't Touch Him

One of the most contentious debates in contemporary American society revolves around the impact of illegal immigrants on crime rates. Now, the debate is set to be ignited again, with Ronald Clare Greenland, a 54-year-old illegal immigrant from Jamaica, linked to multiple rapes and sexual assaults in Westchester County and the Bronx. However, although the authorities have DNA evidence that ties him to the horrific crimes, Greenland cannot be convicted by the authorities as the statutes of limitations have expired.

According to ‘The Post’, the expiration would never have occurred in the first place if the authorities weren’t overburdened by an unending backlog of cases. “We can’t go back and charge him — it’s screwed up,” exclaimed a source close to the case. The unnamed source was equally angered by the fact that the Greenland case had been closed, meaning that the man’s victims “might never, ever know his identity.”

Greenland has a long history of criminal activity, first entering the U.S. in the 1980s. Unsurprisingly, the illegal immigrant was unable to integrate into American society, finding himself on the wrong side of the law in several different scenarios. After being convicted of auto theft, arson and assaulting a police officer, Greenland became accustomed to incarceration. By 2009, Immigration and Customs Enforcements were responsible for ejecting the reprehensible character from American soil, sending him back to Jamaica.

However, Greenland managed to reach American shores once again. Evidently, the man didn’t learn his lesson the first time and, after several more criminal convictions, Immigration and Customs Enforcement sent Greenland back to Jamaica for a second time.

After sneaking back into America for a third time, Greenland resumed his life of crime. After noticing a man attempting to steal car rims from a high-value dealership in Westchester, police officers approached Greenland. However, the veteran criminal wasn’t ready to be brought before Immigration and Customs Enforcement again, pulling out a knife and slashing at Officer David Sanchez, who survived because of his vest.

Because of his time in the prison system, Greenland’s DNA had been taken on several different occasions. Nevertheless, a lengthy case backlog ensured that the evidence was run through the system too late. After attempting to murder Officer Sanchez, Greenland’s DNA was cross-referenced with existing criminal records. Unsurprisingly, the results registered numerous crimes, including a slew of local rapes and sexual assaults.

According to an anonymous source within the Westchester County District Attorney’s Office, Westchester police have been instructed to track down new leads on recent cases and let the existing evidence on Greenland go, an instruction that is fostering significant inter-departmental discontent.

Westchester’s Deputy District Attorney, Paul Noto, is confident that Greenland will go down anyway, telling the New York Post: “We’ve got him on attempted murder, so he’s looking at 25 years to life on that alone,” Nolo said. “Chances are, he’ll die in prison.” Greenland is currently in custody in Valhalla until he is called before trial for attempting to murder Officer Sanchez.
