The Campaign For DA

Hmmmmm


Two things: (1) His blood test was .12 but "“What it really came down to was the [video]. He just did not look like somebody who was intoxicated. (2) The only reason it went before the grand jury was because there was a person in the car under 15.  If not, the case would almost certainly have been filed directly as a misdemeanor and have a public cause number right now.  Story.

This is the second time in the last couple of weeks where the Tarrant County grand jury has acted, from a historical standpoint, unpredictably. I wonder if it is because of a new law which requires grand juries to be composed much like regular juries -- from a cross section of the community.

When was the law changed for grand juries?

Well, the most important thing is that he's free to keep doing it until someone dies.

It must be rewarding to enable people with the ability to pay to make that go away. Keep up the good work!

If it was a warrant blood draw, it sounds like the cop embellished a lot to get it signed. A cop wouldn't do that, would he/she? Snark
