Lawyers Complain Cop-Killer Is Forced To Wear Murdered Officer's Handcuffs

The defense for an alleged teenage cop killer don't want him to wear handcuffs engraved by the fallen officer

Mobile, AL – The defense attorney of a teenager who is accused of killing a police officer have opposed having their client put in handcuffs engraved with murdered police officer’s name.

Marco Perez, 19, was charged with capital murder in the murder of Mobile Police Officer Sean Tuder, according to WALA. Perez pleaded not guilty on Monday in the courtroom when the issue about the handcuffs popped up.

Perez was put in the handcuffs that were engraved with Officer Tuder’s name. The defense attorneys said they planned to file a motion to stop those handcuffs from being used on Perez again, WALA reported.

The prosecutors said the Mobile County Metro Jail made the decision to put Perez in the engraved handcuffs and not the District Attorney’s Office, according to WALA.

The jail warden approved the use of the engraved handcuffs last week. But now that Perez’s attorneys have complained in court about it, those handcuffs will no longer be used, according to WALA.

Officer Tuder, 30, was murdered Jan. 20 when he was trying to apprehend Perez at apartments in West Mobile. Officer Tuder had the day off but had requested permission to follow up on a confidential tip that Perez was at the apartment complex, according to the Birmingham News. Officer Tuder was in undercover clothing and in an unmarked vehicle when he drove to the apartment complex.

Officer Tuder and Perez fought within seconds of the officer’s arrival and Perez allegedly drew a weapon and shot Officer Tuder multiple times.

WPMI released a video that showed Mobile Police Department officers that were just feet away from Perez two days before police said he murdered Officer Tuder. The police were looking for Perez after linking him to at least three stolen cars and one home burglary in January.

Aw, did we hurt widdle Perez's feelings? How about wearing white fluffy handcuffs (put Tuder's handcuffs in white fluffy stuff, so that he can't see Tuder's name - but the officers will know that they have the right cuffs on the bastard.)

WTF?? His attorneys only have the handcuffs being used to argue about, tells me their defense of innocense is extremely weak!! And all cop killers should have to wear the officers engraved cuffs to remind them of what they did and that hell is waiting for them!!!

So the killer has more rights then the memory of the officer,the officer will never come home thanks to that punk,he should have to be put in those cuffs any and every time he’s required to be in cuffs!

I'm not sure how wearing the fallen officer's handcuffs affects Perez. What difference does it make to him if he's innocent?

Why are prosecutors, sheriff's, and police chiefs so afraid of being political incorrect? Let the defense file the motion, who cares? On what grounds would the judge approve the motion? Why doesn't the Sheriff tell the guy to F-off. Since when does a defense attorney tell the Sheriff how to run the jail? These people need to find where they left their spine, or get out of the way and let some leaders with a spine take over.

If he's innocent, why would he or his lawyer care. If he knows he killed the officer, screw him. Either way the cuffs should stay

That’s just a small part of the problem with our so-called justice system. Since when should he have any rights on what f’g handcuffs he has on!

Are activists allowed to wear "Free Mumia" polo shirts in Judge Tucker's court in the new hearings in that case? Why or why not?

Sound to me like the Jail Admin. Gave up they are pussies. This young man should be proud to wear those. Should be the last name he hears on this earth/ or sees.

Absolute bullshit!! Last Saturday a friend and former co-worker of mine was killed in an ambush. His killer is wearing Bill's cuffs and will continue to do so through out all his trials along with shackles. Cop killers should have no right to appeals, found guilty then immediately executed!! Our Sheriff (whom I seen come in as a road ptrol deputy many years ago) said it right at the funeral for Bill: "To those who would do us harm, to those who would advocate for violence against us, to that asshole in my jail, I have two words for you on behalf of Bill's family, this county, my office and all the cops across this country: screw you."- Sheriff Leahy

Lawyers are total wankers. I am surprised he isn’t saying he is was breathing the same air. Before the officer past away.

If sentenced to life he should be forced to maintain a photo of the officer in his cell for the rest of his days just so he doesn't forget why he's in prison. If death, he should have to have it in his death row cell until they execute him!! Frigging punk!

I cannot believe they caved and won't be using them again. Pathetic. They should tell his attorney to pound sand.

Why the hell not? It's a police tradition and I think it's a damn good one! He should be reminded daily of what he did. I can't believe these liberals caved to the demands of these defense lawyers like this! I hope this kid gets the death penalty and that he doesn't sit on death row for 30 years but that justice is swift and sweet for the family!
