Images of Pedro Espada, Jr.,

June 8, 2013

It’s hard if not impossible to find an image of former Senator Pedro Espada that doesn’t demonize him.  And still today as he faces possibly 48 years in prison at his sentencing on June 14, the media  continues  its campaign to demonize the ex-senator as he called for a new trial earlier this week. At a press conference outside the federal courthouse in Brooklyn Espada said:

“We’re saying that Judge Block, his clerk perhaps, and others entered that sacred jury deliberations room … and stressed the importance of the jury coming to a verdict and that the government had spent a lot of money on the case and they jury should push to come to a conclusion,” Espada said at a press conference outside Brooklyn Federal Court.

Here are some of the past and present images of Mr. Espada in the media from the New York Times, Village Voice, NYDaily News, Washington Post, Gawker, Gothamist, Current Daily News, etc. the list is long that continue to demonize his image as though he never contributed anything worthwhile as a public citizen or as a NYS Senator.
