Father of Latest Murdered ASU Student Offers Killer's Accomplice Deal

Categories: News
Zachary Marco
No suspects are in custody for the murder of the latest Arizona State University student killed in Tempe and the father of the victim appeared on KPHO last night to offer a deal to the accomplice of the man who murdered his son.

In an almost-as-bad-ass-as-Mel-Gibson-in-Ransom moment, Dan Marco, a criminal defense attorney and father of Zachary Marco -- the ASU student murdered near the university's Tempe campus over the weekend -- took to the airwaves to offer the accomplice of his son's killer the best defense possible if he turns in the person who pulled the trigger.

"What I offer to him is that if he comes forward, I will do my best to ensure that he gets the best defense possible and gets a deal that ensures that he sees the light of day again," Marco said in a live interview last night.

"One characteristic [criminals] all share is that they think they're smarter than the police," he continued. "The prisons and the execution chambers are filled with all these smart people. They're not as smart as they think they are."

Marco says following his son's murder, he doesn't know if he'll be able to represent accused criminals in the courtroom.

Zachary Marco, a third-year political science major with aspirations of going to law school, was murdered on Sunday night as he walked home from the ASU library.

Police believe he was approached by two men, who wanted his laptop and cellphone.

Despite growing criticism of how the Tempe Police Department is handling murder investigations, Marco says he's satisfied with the investigation.

"They have leads," he said in the interview. "They're working very hard. There are 12 detectives on it, that I'm aware of. I have full faith and confidence in the Tempe Police Department to do their job."

A SIMPLE SOLUTION TO A COMPLEX PROBLEMScience requires any formula/process to be identifiable and repeatable. The Law of Self-preservation may well be at the root of random murders, massacres & or suicides. The below mentioned process makes possible the survival of the fittest. Preparation is the key. When confronted by would-be criminals, unprepared intended-victims feel physically and/or psychologically threatened. When the conscious ego is threatened, bruised and/or punctured due to fear and/or danger, a window opens to the unconscious & exposes a negative energy pocket, which projects, absorbs and/or mirrors negative self-images to others. Ironically, the Law of Self-preservation innately compels the would-be criminal to destroy the negative self-image mirrored by the unprepared intended-victim. Is this the answer to the heart-felt question WHY when senseless carnage takes place? The below mentioned wording/programming generates the alpha wave shield of positive energy that can be imbedded on a subliminal level and coupled with the triggering mechanism of the conscious ego being threatened, bruised and/or punctured due to fear and/or danger.We share one universal mind, one humanity and one planet.Therefore, what we do to another, we in turn do to ourselves.And what we do to ourselves, we in turn do to others(this wording aids in preventing suicide).Had our circumstances in life been reversed,Then our positions now too, would be reversed.Let us have only love, compassion and understandingFor one another, for we are all a part of each other.This process when activated subliminally mirrors a positive self-esteem self-image to others, thus aborting the stress/crime encounter."http://mysite.verizon.net/bizt..." bettycalter1956.net@verizon.netRespectfully,Comment by Elizabeth Mehan Calter

And This For What
And This For What

The death of young Zachary is tragically needless. The offer by Marco the elder is awfully bizarre. But, hey, this is Maricopa in the 21st. Century.


Good luck, Mr. Marco. You have the support of the citizens of Tempe behind you.
