I have also heard of stories where the arresting officer fails to discover a weapon on a defendant and later on in the booking process at the jail one of the jailers does a patdown and finds the weapon! Ouch!

Often LEO, just like anyone else can get complacent, or were never properly trained, in the proper procedure, for frisking a suspect. From previous posts in this thread, regarding TTPD and their procedures in handling suspects, it sounds more like a "hands off" policy, whereby restraints, or getting too personal with a pat down, was frowned upon. Hopefully those things have changed, but an officer had to lose his life.

There were two officers that went to the dorm room for the welfare check, and where the defendant was frisked. The officer who was killed was one of them. If it was the other officer who conducted the frisk, I would be horrified if I were him, or any other officer who searched the defendant and missed the gun. He should probably be on suicide watch, especially today.

01 Dec: Court documents show prosecution will seek death penalty if defendant is tried and convicted. Court documents also indicate defendant may or likely will be found incompetent to stand trial, in which case he would be sent to North Texas State Hospital, Vernon Campus.

In other news, AP articles about this turn of event think Seguin is a suburb of San Antonio. Heaven forfend! :roll:

Let me get this straight. Texas Tech will will accept a student who doesn't even have enough mental capacity to stand trial?

Something tells me that tidbit won't be included in the school's recruitment brochure.

I dunno about TT, but most (all?) universities have numerous professors that think socialism/communism works, so...

Yet, it fails and fails and fails....

When will the pro-commie/proletariate realize communism, and it various cousins simply fail to work for 'the people' but it does provide a haven for dictatorship...?

This approach isn't simple stupidity...it's insanity.
