Methinks it's time to call in the Texas Rangers to sort this mess out. Too many mix-up'S & messed up'S from what we've heard.

Ah, the therapeutic properties of the devil's dandruff. The weed, possibly. The coke, nope.

Best to wait until all the investigations are done and then speculate.

While pretending to be hard at work investigating this incident, Acevedo finds the time to push gun control in the U.S. Capitol and on his Twitter feed.

Image

Here's the WaPo article that's linked in the tweet:
Houston police chief Art Acevedo urged Congress to act on the issue of gun violence Wednesday, saying "our streets, our neighborhoods are truly drowning in the blood of our victims and in the tears of their loved ones.”

At a hearing of the House Judiciary Committee dedicated to gun policy, Acevedo declared, “Gun violence is arguably one of the greatest public health epidemics facing the nation everyone in this room loves and serves."

“Chiefs of police and sheriffs join the victims in asking you to act now to prevent one more death and bloodshed," he said.

...

In the past, Acevedo has been outspoken about his desire for increased gun-control measures. His congressional remarks came the week after four Houston police officers were shot and a fifth injured during a drug raid, after which Acevedo expressed “frustration” with lawmakers. “For whatever reason, they offer a lot of prayers ... We didn’t elect people to pray for us. We elect people to lead us; we elect people to make public policy decisions.”

Why does Acevedo still have a job?

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.
Please know and follow the rules of firearms safety.

Rhetorical??
1911s should be carried openly as God and John Moses Browning (PBUH) intended them to be.

Sheriff Scott Israel helped create the catastrophe at Parkland, and shifted blame to the NRA and US Constitution.

So far Acevedo is just blaming the Constitution... but they do appear to be birds of a feather

The same reason Daniel Ortega still has a job.

More questions, no answers. A cover up, I do smell.
No 9mm, no 357 revolver was at home at time of the raid.

Wait, there was no .357 or 9mm found at the house.

So all this time I was trying to figure out how the homeowner was so good that he wounded 4 with a six shot revolver, instead he was most likely firing a shot gun.

Why did they say handgun, when there wasn’t one.

Was it because every drug dealer has a handgun?

Proper investigations take time. And, they're not run by the chief of police.

A middle aged married couple were killed and five cops were injured. Methinks if TPTB in Houston cared about the truth they would have called in the Rangers two weeks ago.
Sometimes you can't tell if you're just in a bad mood or everyone around you is being annoying.

New development...

Apparently the 2 CIs have said that they never said anything about heroin or don't recall seeing heroin, and that they didn't recognize the people in the house. Sounds like they hit the wrong house and murdered Innocents.
