Re: Shooting at Twin Peaks in Waco

A few things come to mind which are pure speculation. Maybe the D.A. did not carefully screen these cases prior to indictment. Maybe law enforcement "pressured" the D.A. to pursue the cases. There is definitely a story or stories here---hopefully it will come out eventually. Pretty much t...

Re: Shooting at Twin Peaks in Waco

The McLennan County Commissioners voted to put a spending limit on the DA's office for the remainder of Abel Reyna's term to prevent him from draining the account before he leaves office. They would have to approve any additional expenditures beyond those necessary to run the office. Reading between...

Re: Woman calls 911....Get shot

The DA stated that he would have been able to bring charges sooner, but many of the officers they asked to make statements refused to cooperate with them. He said in his 18 years as a prosecutor he had never encountered police officers who were not suspects that "refused to do their duty and co...

Re: Dallas PD and FD Pension Fund.....

They do not have the funds for the Police and Fireman who served the City, but they can build bridges and parks of the roads that are unnecessary, but I am not a very smart guy so maybe I just do t understand. The roads, bridges, parks, etc... are paid for by the taxpayers, with their tax dollars. ...

Re: Dallas PD and FD Pension Fund.....

It is my understanding, that the root of the problem is that the pension fund benefits projected and expected, were based on unrealistic and unachievable returns on the fund's investments and were not sustainable. They promised more than they could deliver. They were paying out more money than they ...

Re: Shake Down on the Bus

Lot's of things get seized that stretch the intentions of the law. For the last couple of years the Sheriff's department in Waco has been running prostitution "sting" operations regularly where they set up in motels with deputies placing ads on Craigslist and setting up appointments to mee...

Re: Shooting at Twin Peaks in Waco

The DA in question (Abel Reyna) was defeated in last nights primary. Now that it can't help him in the election, I expect he will sit on the other defendant's dismissals just out of spite, and make them wait for the new DA to take office and clean house.

Re: Good Summer Sausage?

The absolute best summer sausage I've ever had is from a small family run meat shop in the Waco area. It' called "Torres Meat House" and it's on the New Dallas Highway/928 S Lacy Drive ( it was actually the new road to Dallas from Waco BEFORE I35 was built, but it replaced the original &qu...

Re: "Swatting" claims another innocent victim shot by LEO

How so? What do you know that the rest of us don't? If no one is charged then nothing for a court to sort. That, and dead folks can't testify. Ever notice when the innocent victim lives, there are always huge payouts, and plenty of blame/liability? But when they die, there is some public outrage, f...

Re: Woman calls 911....Get shot

Gee, don't ya think the guy who made the kill shot should answer up? Tell his side of the story? I think he should, but I always advise everyone to not talk to the police. He has the right to not answer any questions in a criminal investigation, just like any other suspect. I am wondering if the de...

Re: What was your very best Christmas Gun Wise?

I had worked and paid for a Marlin .22 auto (looked like the M1 .30 cal carbine) and a J.C. Higgins 12 ga. Pump by the time I was in 7th grade (back in the 60's). My Dad had let me carry and use his S&W model 34 .22 Kit Gun while roaming up and down the river running coon traps and hunting and f...

Re: Do you ride a motorcycle, what kind and how do you carry

Either Kawasaki Concours or Triumph Trophy 1200 and rarely carry on short 1-2 hour rides out in the country on nice backroads with some tight curves and some long sweepers to really lean into at speed. On longer day trip stuff usually in shoulder rig or OWB in cool weather with a jacket. Warm weathe...

Re: AZ: Police release graphic video of officer involved shooting of Texas man

There were six cops on that scene, video from the motel lobby shows them getting on the elevator together. If six cops can't handle one drunk guy without shooting/killing him, that dept has a serious problem. Exactly ! The guy was drunk. He did not shoot at anyone. The call was only that someone sa...
