Police chief Acevedo promised “complete transparency”’ after the incident, then HPD won’t release its own investigation to the public, and city tries block access by victim’s lawyers. He is a liar.

Acevedo is a major leftist and has no business being in Texas anywhere.
It's fine if you disagree. I can't force you to be correct.

I'll simply agree with you because how I really feel about the guy isn't for polite company. He was horrible in Austin, and worse in Houston.

Conviction for $10 crack buy, based on casework of disgraced ex-HPD cop Goines, is overturned
A 35-year-old woman who pleaded guilty to drug dealing after a Houston police officer said he paid her $10
to buy a rock of crack cocaine has had her conviction overturned. Court records show that in March 2017,
Goines approached Scott -- a homeless woman with a history of mental illness and a lengthy record of petty
crimes -- and asked her to help him buy $10 of crack cocaine.

The recent court action marks the latest time local judges have reversed convictions won on the testimony
of former officer Gerald Goines, the veteran Houston Police Department narcotics officer now facing
charges after investigators accused him of lying to obtain a warrant used in a deadly drug raid last year.
This is pathetic! This sounds like a blatant case of entrapment. After the first attempt failed she went to a second location
to buy the crack. All she wanted in return was for Goines to buy her a beer. I am really surprised that a DA would file
charges on something like this. They must not had much real crime happening in 2017.

Legal experts applaud Harris County District Attorney for seeking to overturn cases tied to former HPD officer

Harris District Attorney Kim Ogg recommended Thursday 91 cases tied to former Houston Police Department officer Gerald Goines be dismissed.

“No conviction should stand based on false testimony,” Ogg said.

The testimony came from Goines, who solely swore, under oath, the existence of probable cause to magistrate judges.
In turn, those judges signed warrants based on Goines’ testimony, Ogg said.
