Random Crime Stats: Felony Cases Pending In Texas District Courts

County                            Population  Pending


That really is insane. Texas counties with basically the same population but with a vast different amount of pending felony cases as of 8/31/15 -- last stats available. (District court data source)

Starr County sticks out. I thought for a second that perhaps by some fluke that the district court had misdemeanor jurisdiction as well. Nope. They have 2,866 misdemeanors pending in other courts. (County data source).  Get this: Wise County has 666 misdemeanors pending!!!

C'mon, BG. Starr County is right on the border with Mexico, the epicenter of drug- and whatever else-smuggling. Not to mention the consequences of whatever other fun -- kidnapping, extortion, assault, etc. -- the drug guys commit. Apparently Starr County ranks high in both violent and property crimes.

Why don't you look at a map of where Starr county is located?? Oh but there's no crime at the border! Just ask any Democrat.

The origin of HEY NOW?


All the Secret Service had witnessed Bill and Monica 'embracing, making out, or on the Oval Office Desk'.
And she frequently wore dresses that were too short – anything to catch the president's eye.
On one occasion, after Clinton sighted her, 'she turned back to ensure she had his attention – and flipped up her black-and-white print dress to reveal her blue thong'.
Clinton laughed and said, 'Hey, there!'

The other Counties also have prison units and they may carry those cases on their dockets as well.

So what are the counties supposed to do, exactly? Have less felons and criminals living there? And how do they accomplish that, exactly? What is Starr County supposed to do if there are more criminals there than in other places? The answer, it seems, to keep their stats in line would be just to announce a strategy that no longer involves responding to and taking action when crimes are committed. Wow, what a great strategy.

Oh, the Rio Grande valley where I have to live...full of corruption, from cafeteria workers to the Sheriff and district attorney, oh, yeah, and home of our very own town idiot Filemon Vela.

It doesn't say they are felony cases.

Is this some kind of campaign ploy? If you become DA...you gonna get rid of the backlog??

Hey Starr County, when the 911 calls come in, or when your officers see a crime taking place, just chill and let it happen. "YOUR" numbers are too high, and since the criminals aren't about to stop...it's your only solution.
