Goins will spend thanksgiving in prison. Feds play hard ball with bail and say he is a flight risk.
I wonder what the evidence is for flight risk?

Who is Patricia Garcia. Apparently got angry when invited to the vigil for the victims by a neighbor. Lives directly across the street.
This turns it into a shocking and appalling doxxing case.
I predict 60 Minutes will run with this one.

Re: 5 Officers Shot In Houston - Pray

I hope, one day, the public will learn what really happened in this incident.
Remember, the police chief promised full transparency and that we would know--then everybody lawyered up and went to ground. Crickets.
I want to know what really happened at that house and the questionable warrant--remember the alleged informant said wasn't him--soooo.
Well, I won't hold my breath--guess it is my cynicism that comes with old age.

Re: 5 Officers Shot In Houston - Pray

Hope somebody can get to the bottom of all this. Looks to me like the City of Houston has "lawyered up" and "gone to ground" so good luck getting anything from them unless the courts get involved.

Re: 5 Officers Shot In Houston - Pray

I am speculating that the Houston City Attorney's Office advised Art to clam up and lawyer up in light of potential civil and criminal lawsuits--hence the lack of cooperation from him despite his earlier promises to be transparent. Sad.

Re: 5 Officers Shot In Houston - Pray

I thought Acevedo promised transparency in all of this--guess my bad. Looks to me like he is circling the wagons and preparing for a long defense as even the District Attorney has to ask for key records.
Sad.

Didn’t Art say we should know something or that his investigation will be
finished by the end of the month? He running out of time...

Attorney for officer at center of investigation speaks out.
Always find it interesting to follow the "frame-"reframe" game as I call it.

Notice the lawyer directs the focus away from Goines to reframe as follows:
attack the chief of police;
point out political agendas;
believes there has been "unfair publicity";
notes "angry press conferences";
D.A.'s charging decision may be "politically filtered."

Anyway, wonder if investigating officers will get any useful information from the cell phone warrants.
If the facts are on your side, pound the facts into the table.
If the law is on your side, pound the law into the table.
If neither the facts nor the law are on your side, pound the table.

Re: 5 Officers Shot In Houston - Pray

Law enforcement, prosecutors, and judges have huge amounts of power.
Always sad to see that power abused in cases like this.

Re: 5 Officers Shot In Houston - Pray

This is quite disturbing. Obviously somebody is not telling the truth. Hope the police give us the full story--will wait and see.

Re: 5 Officers Shot In Houston - Pray

First we heard there was no video-tape of the incident then Acevedo said they are reviewing body-cams....hmmmm.
I am certain this had to be recorded both audio and video. Acevedo needs to release it all to the public if he truly believes in "transparency."
He could certainly redact any portions deemed confidential such as informant names, if mentioned, etc.
Glad I do not live in Houston anymore.

Re: 5 Officers Shot In Houston - Pray

The police agencies I am familiar with will both weigh it at the scene with digital scales then send it to the D.P.S. lab for more accurate weighing and analysis of the substance. All of that is important for figuring out what to charge somebody with. Of course, in this case the presumed defendants are dead from gunshot wounds so they won't be charged.

Re: 5 Officers Shot In Houston - Pray

The police know a bunch they are not telling us.
Hopefully the truth will eventually filter out--or at least more than we know now.
We will see if Acevedo really believes in "transparency."

Re: 5 Officers Shot In Houston - Pray

I thought earlier it was mentioned the raid was not video-taped or that law enforcement was not wearing body-cams.
Now we get this from the article above:
He (Acevedo) said that body-worn camera footage has already started being reviewed.
I am so confused! :( :???:
