Murdered his pregnant wife. Out on personal recognizance bond after killing family cat and striking wife.

There is a link between killing pets and killing people. Wife should have gotten out of Dodge.

Stabbed her 20 times.

Unfortunately this can quite literally be near-impossible psychologically. That where friends and family come in. :/

Having been called to too many domestics I have more than once told the Girlfriend/wife to get out before he kills you! Their almost verbatim response was "I love him and it's not his fault, I made him mad and that's why he lost his temper" I have seen these women beg the Cops to not take their boyfriend/husband to jail even though they had blackeyes, split lips, bloody nose, bruised or broken arms, etc.
Best thing the State of Texas did was to take the pressing of charges out of these women's hands!
Government, like fire is a dangerous servant and a fearful master
If you ain't paranoid you ain't paying attention

Mean freeways of Houston- small car accident causing one car to spin out. Other car stops and unloads with a semiautomatic rifle on the spun car, killing two inside.A not involved, but brave driver, fearing for his life decides to fire his hand gun at the person with the semi automatic rifle. The other car drives off. Lucky for the driver fearing for his life. Drugs may be involved.

Brave driver fearing for his life opens fire, hope his bullet didn't hit anything other than the perps car.

I have always said that I am surprised this hasn't happened on a larger scale yet. Rush hour traffic (or anytime for that matter) in Houston is insane. If someone decided they wanted to stop traffic and just open fire, it would be mass causalities for sure. Scary times out here right now. People need to stay vigilant and keep your head on a swivel.

This was featured on National news tonight along with the Walmart video maker with guns.

While riding in a car driven by her husband, a woman was shot to death by someone in a passing car.
https://www.click2houston.com/news/loca ... e-shooting

Man arrested. Extradited from Georgia.

“The defender argued that Blackledge had lived in the Katy area for three years and he lives with his parents, brother, girlfriend and their young daughter. His attorney also said Blackledge has been working as a music artist, is a senior in high school and suffers from ADHD and PTSD.”

Perfect resume for a 19 yo.

Note to self: Texas Children’s Hospital is where to go with gunshot wound.

Recently it has been deadly for women to end relationships with men here in Houston.

https://www.click2houston.com/news/loca ... rder-trial

Brother of man on trial for murder “smokes” a couple with a shotgun, that he later sold, to prevent them from being witnesses. In an interesting technique, rather than fleeing, he waits around and is interviewed by the police and claims he was there hiding in the bathroom when the other two were murdered. He claims the man murdered is his uncle and they were playing video games. I think. He steals the video game and sells it. The serial number goes back to the murdered man.

Man had a flat tire on the way to the airport to pick up his wife. 3 Hispanics stopped to help, they kidnapped him and the two children. He was hit over the head, 21 hours later he wakes up and the little 4 year old stepdaughter had been kidnapped.

Search party is out looking for the little girl.

For some reason the commenters, seem to have problems with the father's story.

Nope, not murder, indicted for corpse tampering.
Headstone of little girl in the news.

Get a load of this!
The demand for the Popeyes sandwich was so high that hour long lines were reported at some locations and even someone tried to sell the sandwich on eBay for $7,000.
I am never up to speed on the latest fads. I did not even know Popeyes had a chicken sandwich. Actually, it never occurred to me to care.

Not Houston, but not that far of South Houston. Home invasion caught on camera a few miles from me. 4 suspects, heavily armed: https://www.khou.com/article/news/crime ... 06cc4e0d92
