Plainclothes, no-knock warrant. This no longer passes the smell test, either for corruption or epic incompetence, I’m not yet sure.
Soros funded the DA’s campaign.
The rest of the city offices are all Democrat with the 2018 O’dork New Democrat sweep (the Republican governor stayed in office but all 5 major cities in Texas voted against him, some by 2-1). Straight ballot voting (it’s final year for Houston) handed complete control to Democrats.
Pass the popcorn and guard the pocketbook.
I generally side with cops but no way should no knock raids even be legal (especially in plain clothes). It’s an opening for a totally innocent person to open fire on police.
“Plainclothes, no-knock warrant...”
Anybody can yell: “Police. This is a raid.” or whatever is is they say. I know if people who didn’t look like cops came busting in without a knock, I, and a few of them, would also be dead. This is a practice that could likely have no other outcome. What, are you supposed to wait and see if it is really cops? F that! And even the real cops get the wrong house quite often it seems. Why not just stake out and wait for someone to come out? No sympathy for drug dealers, but the no-knock raid seems to have more errors than successes. Then there is the hilarious practical joke known as “SWATTing”. This is nothing to play with.
No heroin found, no residual heroin found, no baggies, scales, spoons, syringes in a house that was supposedly a heroin house.
Oh those boyz with their toyz! I even read that the chief of police called out the wrong street in an interview...something like Harding instead of Harwin or vice versa.
Man, this police state stuff has got to stop.
Thinking corruption. Want to get rid of someone? A police raid sounds like an ideal way. Could have been him or her that someone wanted to eliminate.
I’m sorry the pooche died.
