The Campaign For DA

Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts



  • Time is running out to sign up for the Not Double Fake Liberally Lean Tourney Pick 'Em.
  • I hadn't seen Timothy McVeigh's attorney, Stephen Jones, since the bombing trial. Now this week he's been in the news representing the OU fraternity and a witness in the Super Bowl ticket trial. (I remember an article about him during the the bombing trial's individual jury selection which explored his ability to talk to any juror in depth about their jobs. A nurse. An engineer. An oilfield worker. A mechanic. He could reference bizarre minutia about their area of expertise.)
  • Odd story of a guy who left a toddler in his car yesterday in Dallas. He went to the movies at 11:00 on on a Tuesday after a nap?   And, from a criminal standpoint, it was interesting to see him arrested on the spot yet a police officer interviewed on camera said it was an "accident" and it "could happen to anyone." That case is dead in the water. As it probably should be. 
  • But I couldn't take my eyes off this "good Samaritan" involved in that story. (Photo.)
  • I've got to research that assault case against possible new Dallas Cowboy Greg Hardy. I've heard for months he was "convicted" by a judge but the case was later "dismissed" when the victim didn't show up for a jury trial. Confuses me to no end. Edit: A Ticket guy with the answer.
  • Republican congressman Aaron Schock resigned yesterday in the midst of a financial scandal. Young. Good looking. Douchey. Magazine cover model. Not very bright. He couldn't survive politically today but he will be able to in a few years from now.  Coverage on Entertainment Tonight will be more important than Meet The Press
  • Motorcycle death in Burleson. 
  • Based upon reports from the Kids In The House, pinching is still alive and well on St. Patrick's Day. 
  • I've never been sure about just exactly what happens at South by Southwest.
  • Local media thoughts: (1) Something is weird with Fox 4's Steve Eager. He's become the equivalent of an attitudinal teen. (2) No one is more arrogant on Twitter than sports guy Mike Fisher. And he has no reason to be. (3) How does Clarice Tinsley keep a straight face reading those Facebook posts? Probably because she doesn't understand how silly she looks. (4) I like Fox 4's Jenny Anchondo. (5) Ed "Uncle Barky" Bark doesn't understand that being a television "expert" (not sure how that is even possible) doesn't make him an expert in everything. (6) Whatever happened to Jean-Jacques Taylor? 
  • I'm kind of surprised that every kid doesn't have an implanted GPS chip by now. 
  • The paper below has a story about a judge using technology in dealing with late night search warrant requests for blood. "[Judge] Neves, who is often lying in bed when the calls come in, approves the warrant and swears in the officers on a tablet using the county’s video chat."  That almost sounds like the judge is a rubber stamp.

there's this thing called interwebs where you can go to the Google or the Wikipedia and look up that South by Southwest thingy. They can probably give you all the "lowdown" on what haps there

Accidental or not, the guy who leaves his child in a car while he takes a nap and goes to a movie is guilty of endangerment.
Drugz r alkeyhaul may be involved

As much as I hate watching the Lubbock- quality broadcast of Fox News at 9, I do for sleep reasons. That newscast is such a mess. Reading opinions from the masses is the last thing I want to see on the news.

And you forgot that Brett Shipp is the most Debbie Downer local Twitter media member. He hates everything.

There are a couple more kids coming next year to make this team even better!

Almost? How many requests has he turned down? I'll go out on a limb and say 0.

Man it's been nice here in the comments section the last few days! I wonder what/who has been missing.

That wasn't a good samaritan. That was a good Shameekwan.

What's missing is about 100 complaints a day about WK.

Had Aaron Shock been a democrat, he would have been given a sweet chairmanship position.

If I made 300 thousand dollars to read a teleprompter like Clarice or Obammy, I would be one happy pappy.

You raised the bar today on the RTG. Good eye.

GPS needs power to send.
However a RFID chip needs no power and could be implanted.
One of those chips could be configured to be read about anywhere.

Would love to have been a fly on the wall in the West Wing this morning.
Valerie Jarrett was probably wound up on Khat like a ten dollar guitar- and Bam Bam will have to head to the links to shank a few and relieve the stress.
Bibi's "surprising" win shows just how much the MSM is wearing the kneepads in regards to Obama. We were all told that Bibi was toast and didn't stand a chance. LMAO!

I am not Sam but I love green eggs and ham.

Oh, I'm still here, kiddies. But I've made clear that generally I comment only on specific topics, none of which Barry has addressed lately, so there's nothing I care to comment on. Enjoy yourselves while you can.

Valerie Jarrett has probably ordered Hamas rocket attacks on all schools and churches in Israel on the day Bibi is sworn in.

I just figured you were at a Klan rally all week wordy, cozying up to the Grand Dragon or something. Good to see you haven't left us.

If WK's going to post, he should probably learn to read and assume that not everything is about him.

It looks like Jean-Jacques Taylor works for ESPN-Dallas. He has a couple of Rangers columns on line.

Netanyahu was furious and frantic on election day, but then this was replaced by a confident swagger even before the results swung to his favor, even as the exit polls absolutely showed a tie between he and Herzog. What did he know that his desperation was suddenly replaced by arrogance? Netanyahu would not hesitate to fix an election, and he knew that the fix was in.

Israel does not have electronic voting, which supported election fraud for Bush and company in 2000 and 2004. As with the Scotland fix in 2014 which the Queen ordered, it was merely a matter of substituting paper ballots. Reduce the pile for another, increase the pile for Netanyahu. How difficult would this be for the Mossad, which is famous for their skill? Those who refused to cooperate could look forward to a painful death or maiming if they refused.

In 32 years of federal law enforcement I never turned down for a warrant because I never took an application to a judge unless i knew I had probable cause.

That "dead in the water" case was booked into Lew Sterrett on Felony charges.

"'[Judge] Neves, who is often lying in bed when the calls come in, approves the warrant and swears in the officers on a tablet using the county’s video chat.' That almost sounds like the judge is a rubber stamp."

No, BG. It doesn't. It gives the judge the ability to question the officer about clarity on the case. It allows the judge to verify that the officer is who he says he is, and is raising his right hand before swearing to the veracity of the events which he has informed the judge about. In addition, a PC Affidavit is generally sworn in. For on-view arrests, these are just left at the jail for the arraigning magistrate to find and review. The other, inferior method of obtaining search warrants over a distance is to send a fax with a sworn signature witnessed by another peace officer or a notary. This is better.

Look, we get it that you're threatened by the ability of officers to more easily obtain warrants so that they can maintain the integrity of the Fourth Amendment. More good sworn warrants means that more good evidence will be obtained, means that you're going to have to recommend more pleas. But don't be disingenuous and claim that this version of the process amounts to a "rubber stamp." That's just dumb, and not true.

I keep saying that you're better than this, BG. Are you?
