Re: Officer Invades Apartment, Shoots Resident

Watch the cross - notice the DA's approach, and again, something to keep in mind if you're ever on trial for shooting somebody. He kept repeating "you COULD have..." You COULD have taken cover, and she answered "I could have." You COULD have called for backup... and so on. So he paints a picture of ...

Re: Officer Invades Apartment, Shoots Resident

This is 30 minutes, but it's worth watching if you're interested. It shows the prosecution introducing the case to the jury. Pretty damning, before the trial even starts. One other thing useful about this video: if you ever end up in court for a self defense shooting, this gives you a taste of what ...

Re: Officer Invades Apartment, Shoots Resident

I just have a hard time with her not understanding she was on the wrong floor and wrong apartment. Other aspects of the case notwithstanding, this is completely understandable. I've made this mistake myself in the past, in apartments and hotels where all the floors, hallways, doors, etc. are identi...

Re: Officer Invades Apartment, Shoots Resident

Did she walk INTO the apartment and shoot, or did she shoot him when he answered the door? Lots of contradicting details here. She said the door was open, but those steel fire doors automatically shut, tight as bank vaults. And if the door was open, why was she, according to neighbors, yelling "let ...

Re: Officer Invades Apartment, Shoots Resident

Another thought, I thought this was manslaughter, if there were no other facts that came out to contradict the story that she mistakenly entered that apartment. It makes me wonder if how that was presented was not believed by the jury. If they didn't believe that then I'm curious what was believed ...

Re: Officer Invades Apartment, Shoots Resident

There is certainly a race component in this case, no question about it. I was watching the prosecutor yesterday; he was blaring into the cameras, "This is for Michael Brown!" "This is for Eric Garner!!" "This is a victory for all black people!!!" It reminded me of the cheering when O.J. Simpson was ...

Re: Lots of people buying guns/ammo at the border.

Saw a bunch of people buying and checking out guns here on the border. Most were going for hi-points and pocket pistols. And as far as ammo, most wanted FMJ's due to price I'm told. $7.99 was the cheapest 9mm ammo left and some felt that was too high. I saw several of them muzzle flash everyone aro...

Straus calls for special session

Joe Straus did an article in the Houston Chronicle calling for a special session on guns. Just a heads-up.

Re: The face tattoo test works flawlessly

Reminds me of a young lady who worked in a Pizza Hut in Austin several years back. I ran into her often when I went there on my lunch break. Her head was shaved absolutely slick as a cue ball. On top of her head was a very detailed, color tattoo of a commode, looking down into the bowl. The caption ...

Re: Would you support this gun private purchase restriction

Of course, people who use guns in crimes will ignore all this foofooraw anyway. As far as selling one, it would be unenforceable. Instead of buying that gun for $400, you could just buy that old lawn mower for $400 and I'd give you the gun.

Re: NASCAR turns left into Dicks

I'm surprised it took this long considering all a NASCAR race is normally just a bunch of left turns. Yeah, watching Indy and NASCAR on TV is about as exciting as watching paint dry. The only thing that raises eyebrows is the occasional crash, and what the heck, now you can watch 30-minute crash co...

Re: Did anti texting and driving laws reduce accidents?

I think texting and driving should be elevated to a more serious crime, something up along the level of DUI. I drive a freeway (I-10) every day and you wouldn't believe what I see out there.
