Kerrville's Dumbest Criminal; DHS Helping Drug Cartels

Stupid is as stupid does -
Tattooing minors, then violating probation, then cussing the judge nets 60 year prison term

The San Antonio Express reports on one Raymond Nathaniel Hale, who was on deferred adjudication probation for tattooing two young girls. The actual charge was injury to a minor. Raymond is a frequent flier in the criminal justice system. The Kerr County District Clerk shows at least 20 prior arrests for various crimes - theft, bail jumping, injury to a child or elderly individual, sexual assault of a child, failing to register as a sex offender, and burglary. One thing that I don't understand - why is someone like this not already in prison for about 50 years? If our prosecutors and judges would slam the serious criminals we could cut the crime rate drastically. I bet that 80% of the crimes are committed by 20% of the people who get arrested. One reason so many people (and I'm one of them) move from Houston to Kerrville is to get away from the street crime.

Anyway, Raymond pled guilty a year or so ago to tattooing two young girls on the belly - below the panty line. He was given another chance and placed on deferred adjudication probation. Of course he violated, and yesterday went before Judge Keith Williams. When the judge sentenced him to 50 years, Raymond, who is black, went off on a rant about how the judge was racist. He threw in a few F-words too. Here's a hint for anyone in front of a judge who has your fate in his hands - don't yell and curse at the judge. Raymond's tirade got him an extra 10 years in the Big House.

Federal Judge: DHS Complicit in Human Smuggling That Helps Fund Drug Cartels

A United States federal judge has accused President Barack Obama’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) of being complicit in helping Mexican drug cartels and felons inside America smuggle illegal aliens into the country.

In a court order he signed on Dec. 13, 2013, U.S. District Judge Andrew S. Hanen of the U.S. District Court of the Southern District of Texas wrote that four times in the last four weeks he has heard troubling cases involving the DHS’s complicity in helping smuggle people across the border to their final destination.


  1. So you move to Kerrville to get away from street crime.... then what?

  2. We don't have much street crime in KV, especially compared to Houston, for several reasons. Street crime against law abiding citizens is lower in most small towns. Houston has a very large population of low income blacks and illegal aliens, a lot of gang activity, and also many more thugs of all races. TDC seems to send a couple of bus loads of ex-cons into downtown
    Houston every week. The Kerrville PD does a good job of identifying and watching the worst of the street thugs, and getting them off the streets. I still look around before I get out of the car at the grocery store, but I don't feel like I have to be "cocked and locked" when I go to HEBS.

  3. I agree with every thing you say. However, when you live in Kerrville, you must deal with the food they eat, the art they create, the politics that the vast majority believe in, and that ever present the southern fried religion. At least in Houston there are choices. I will always take a chance to live in a place with some culture, new ideas and open minds. To each his own. Best wishes.
