The Campaign For DA

10.10.2017

Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts


  • Edit: This went up late today because I forgot to push a button before a courthouse docket.  
  • What the heck is up with a Texas Tech student shooting a Texas Tech cop? And how in the world does he have a gun on him without the cops not knowing? (He was taken to the police station after a "welfare check" call where the cops found "drugs and drug paraphernalia.") I don't know if he was under arrest. The facts are confusing. 
  • However, there is the law: If arrested, the cops can search you incident to that but you would be stunned how often that does not happen. If you are "detained" but not arrested, you can only be patted down if the officer has a reasonable fear for his safety.
  • The story about the missing three year old from Richardson is weird. The guy made her stand by a tree at 3:00 a.m. because she didn't drink her milk? I don't think so. 
  • But I don't understand the Amber Alert for the girl being "deactivated." One, why? Two, what does that even mean? 
  • ESPN suspended a basically unknown reporter for saying that sponsors need to boycott the Cowboys because of Jerry Jones' statement that any Cowboy won't play if they protest during the anthem. That seems a little over the top. But the Toddler In Chief was happy about it this morning: 
  • Before the high school volleyball game I went to with Mrs. LL I turned to her and asked, "If I took a knee while they play the anthem would you kill me?" Her: "Absolutely."
  • Cat Fight!
  • Regarding the Waco Bikers Cases, the D.A. down there might have committed perjury. Every arrest warrant affidavit was basically a cut and paste job and signed by the same guy. The D.A. was asked under oath if he talked to the affiant about the cases and he said yes. The affiant later testified he never talked to him at all and seemed stunned by the question. 
  • Those California fires are horrific. Neighborhoods are going up in flames.
  • There are going to be seven new hotels in downtown Fort Worth?
  • A faithful reader found this: 
  • Trump and Pence saying people shouldn't protest might be the most un-American thing ever.
  • The Sonic commecial guys were funny 10 years ago. This time around, not so much
  • This is the greatest two point conversion in the history of ever. (Well, maybe with the exception of Boise State's statue of liberty play against Okahoma back in the day.)

Did Trump and Pence say that people should not protest?

I wouldn't call Jemele Hill an "unknown reporter". She's the co-host of the primetime edition of the most widely known show on the network and she's been all of the news for her social media activities for the last month.

They are all about respecting the flag yet the Flag Code says it is never to be displayed horizontally. This is exactly how it is displayed at most NFL games and NASCAR drags it around behind a truck horizontally.
So the rules only apply to individuals not corporate entities.

I have never heard of Jemelle Hill until this controversy. But the only ESPN program I watch is college game day. She's trying to make her mark. Bless her. Speaking of Game Day, did you see the Karma 5, Baylor 0 sign at TCU? Greatness.

That ESPN reporter was told to stop once before.

And believe me, if you boycott the sponsors for the Cowboys you are boycotting the sponsors for ESPN also. It is all about the money. If my company said i could not do something and I did it anyway I would be fired. She was benched for two weeks.

Hey Skippy, Stay Woke!! Has Trump launched nukes into North Korea yet? Has Trump fired Sessions yet?

Yeah, dad did something else with the daughter's body. The 3 AM part is just a story he is trying to sell to the PD.

I would guess that the police have evidence showing that she is dead already, so that is why they are calling off the Amber Alert. I know that they have taken the family's vehicles.

Again--confusion between "can" you protest (me, me, me--rights, rights, rights) and "should" you protest IN THAT MANNER (others, others, others--duty, duty, duty).

Protest about whatever you want to protest about, but it's really "bad form" (the English would say) to be disrespectful to the flag and the national anthem--the very symbols of what gives you the right to peacefully protest.

REALLY? You can't think of another way to protest? I know the answer. You don't CARE (hence the problem).

No, the Confederacy was the most un-American thing ever.

On the Amber Alert; they usually only keep them active if they have 1)good information saying there was an abduction 2) Information on who may have taken a child.

Sadly, in this case, I think it's a matter of finding out what dad did with the body.

Sam Brows said...

9:32 is spot on, she's not at all unknown, and the reason she got suspended was for violating ESPN's social media policy, not so much what she said. ESPN has that policy because it deals in advertisers and if one of its on air personalities says something in social media that an advertiser disagrees with, the company can face significant fallout. Essentially, if you don't want to agree with ESPN governing what you say on social media, then you don't take the company's millions of dollars. Oh, and this latest faux pas on her part follows almost getting fired after calling the President a White Supremacist on social media.

Hey, Stay Woke guy. The bit was cute for a while. Then it was annoying. No its just stupid.

When or if Trump launches nukes, or fires Sessions, come on back.

I feel bad for the police officer and his family, but I also feel bad for the shooter's family. He wasted not one but two lives last night---the officer's and his own. I can't imagine getting a call that your son has been arrested for capital murder. The shooter's parents will live long enough to see their son die by lethal injection. That's just awful all the way around.

Barry I am seriously concerned for your mental health. You were always out there but you are starting to turn into a nut job. To keep things in prospective you still are not at as bad as Trump or a few of the people who post on here. It might be time to step away from the keyboard if it is not to late.

Fools like Barry and the group behind the “Rage” comments believe that our existence is natural. They are bored, angry and confused.

Seriously? The President of these United States is ridiculing a sitting U. S. Senator using a derogatory term regarding his heighton Twitter today? This is not a joke, or humorous, or funny. It is just flat out mean and being a bully. If he was a six year old on the school yard, he would be in a time out immediately. Instead, he is an adult and the Leader of the Free World. Jerk.

I got your perspective right here. I'm guessing you aren't a psychiatrist? And your spelling sucks.

Leave the lib alone. We're having a ball watching him implode. And I got the feeling he's having a ball pretending to publicly lose his sanity.

Aren't you entertained yet?

Holy cow! The Tech shooter's family contacted Tech before the welfare call and expressed concern that he might be in possession of a weapon.

There was no evidence (kidnapper or car description) of an abduction so they had to cancel the Amber Alert. However, of course they are still searching for her and investigating the parents...strange case. Sounds like another long wait like the case of the 14 yr old they found in the dump ground a few months ago. They knew who did it but needed time to get the evidence or admission of guilt.

Skippy, I'm not surprised that it took 10 years for you to become tired of two gay guys.

Enlighten us 3twenty. You seem to be an insider. What are "you people" not seeing yet? Doubt if Trump sees a step behind.

Skippy why no mention of liberal darling Winestein being a pervert? Oh yes, doesn't fit your message. Oh well. He and Bill can exchange stories over a scotch and cigar one day soon. And f you rage. There's nothing you can add to the discussion.

Why does the National Anthem have to be played at Professional Sporting Events? What gives them the right to play the National Anthem before these athletes compete? Who ownes the National Anthem that has the capability/power to deny its use by overpaid premedanas dishonoring it to begin with.
Keep the Division of church and state strong enough so we are forced to demand the division of sports and state too?

That little girl isn't missing because the police are suspicious of dad. It'll be a long drawn-out process, but I'm willing to be that he killed her. Nobody takes a kid outside at 3:00 am, much less outside of their yard.
