In Hidalgo County, more corruption charges in sheriff's office
and they certainly weren’t deluded money grubbing hucksters like Hagee.
SAN ANTONIO — With one of his top commanders facing federal charges of drug trafficking and money laundering, Hidalgo County Sheriff Lupe Treviño said Friday that he's firing the senior officer and insisted the public can still trust the integrity of the sheriff's office — and the man who leads it.
“There's no sheriff, there's no chief, no law enforcement CEO in the United States or the state of Texas who would tolerate or ignore something like this,” said Treviño, whose department has been scandalized by a wide-ranging federal investigation of corrupt law enforcement officers on the Texas border who took bribes from drug traffickers.
Update on the “Knockout Game”
Texas man charged with hate crime for breaking ‘knockout game’ victim’s jaw- US prosecutors contend Conrad Barrett, 27, who is white, targeted a 79-year-old black man and broke his jaw — and that the attack was caught on cellphone video footage.Read more: http://www.nydailynews.com/news/crime/texas-man-charged-hate-crime-knockout-game-attack-article-1.1559077#ixzz2ogGFlJ7a
I hope the prosecutors crucify this thug. I do question why, when a white punk assaults a black man, the feds jump on it, but have nothing to say about the many documented cases where it’s black thugs attacking white victims.
On this case, why don’t the feds let the State handle it? Under Penal Code 22.04, he can be charged with aggravated injury to an elderly person, a 1st degree felony (5-99 yrs or life).
I know it offends some of the more liberal people who read this blog, but - if I had seen this criminal attack a 79 year old man, I would have done whatever it took to stop it, up to and including using deadly force, which, depending on the threat level, could well be justified. I don't care what race they were - wrong is wrong.
Pastor John Hagee to Non-Christians - Get Out of USA!! http://www.mysanantonio.com/news/local/article/Pastor-John-Hagee-to-atheists-Get-out-of-U-S-5096331.php
SAN ANTONIO — A San Antonio pastor has a message to atheists and people who don't celebrate Christmas: “Leave the country” or “Take your Walkman and stuff it into your ears.”
Pastor John Hagee told members of his flock Sunday at Cornerstone Church that “Christmas is under attack in America” because workers who run government offices now greet people with “Happy Holidays” instead of “Merry Christmas.”
He said that any non-Christians and atheists who didn't believe in Jesus Christ should just leave the country, as the United States was built upon a Christian foundation.
------- I wonder - does this apply to Jesus, Joseph and Mary and all the other Jews?? And who cares what postal clerks say? And for that matter, under Hagee’s regime, Thomas Jefferson and most of the other Founders would have been deported - they were more Deists than Christians, and they certainly weren’t deluded money grubbing hucksters like Hagee.
“America was built by Christian people who believed in the word of God. ... If our belief in God offends you, move,” Hagee said before informing atheists that "we don’t want you and we won’t miss you, I promise you.”
Hagee probably would include Jews in the people he would deport. He has declared on multiple occasions that God sent Adolf Hitler as a "hunter" to kill Jewish people for “disobedience and rebellion.”
