The Campaign For DA

10.12.2016

Some Details


FORT WORTH - The former Rhome police chief and candidate for Wise County sheriff is accused of threatening to climb the Rhome water tower and shoot the ex-Rhome mayor.

Brandon Davis, 41, of Justin, also is accused in a Wise County indictment of telling the ex-mayor, Louis Godfrey, that he was going to “kick” or “beat” “his ass.”

Full story.

One very interesting aspect is that "Officials with the Texas Attorney General’s Office investigated the case and presented it to the Wise County grand jury" and not the local DA's office.  The AG's office has an ominous sounding name but (1) those guys aren't day to day prosecutors and can get in over their heads way too quickly and easily, and (2) the chances of them understanding Wise County and/or Rhome are next to nothing.
