Bretibart: An MS-13 gang member nicknamed “Animal” has been convicted and sentenced to prison for the murder of a 15-year-old boy in East Boston.
Joel Martinez, also known as “Animal,” is a 23-year-old national from El Salvador and a member of the violent MS-13 street gang, according to the Boston Herald.
In September 2015, Martinez told a federal informant that he stabbed 15-year-old Irvin Depaz three times and left him for dead on the street in order to be fully inducted into the MS-13 gang.
“I stabbed the [coward] three times,” Martinez told the informant of the murder.
“He stared at me and he asked me if I was going to — if I was going to stab him. I told him, ‘Yes, the [gang] rules you,’” Martinez said.
