There is an irrefutable truth: violence generates more violence. And this seems to be what happened to Christina López.
The woman, who is 42 years old and lives in the city of Madero, in California, United States, suffered the worst thing that can happen to any mother: her son was murdered. The young man was shot by security agents during a shootout.
For the fact, López collected a compensation of $ 4.9 million. However, you really made a poor decision when it came to using them.
According to what the local channel ABC30 reports, Christina López was arrested for using much of the money to buy weapons for his other son and his gang of gang members,
A sordid story
The woman received the money from the city authorities in April this year. It was compensation for the death of his son Isiah Murrietta-Golding, from 16 years, who was killed while on the run from officers trying to stop him in 2017, the site reports RT.

According to Fresno County District Attorney Lisa Smittcamp, Christina Lopez used some of that money to buy guns for his 14-year-old son to distribute to his gang.
“Clearly, this is a family ‘experienced’ in this type of behavior,” said the official.
In this sense, in addition, the Fresno County investigators assure that they achieved unravel a series of conspiracies and murders related to a death in the nearby city of Malaga earlier this year.
As a result of this decision, and as part of an investigation into a criminal group whose members were allegedly involved in this fatal shooting in which Javier Fernández died and which occurred last July, the woman was one of 14 people arrested in an operation.
Currently, López faces 22 charges. Among them, those that include the conspiracy to deliver firearms to a minor for the benefit of a street gang and put the life of this minor – who was his own son – in danger.
The defendant remains in prison and they expect her to appear in court next Tuesday.
