I'm wondering if this is drug cartel related.
Why let logic get in the way of a good conspiracy.
A Press Release... -30-
“how a gun could have passed through security or been within the county building”
My, imagine THAT, something ELSE that didn’t work 100%!
Because he “friended” you makes it seem he was getting all his affairs in order?
No, it's the timing. I had sent a friend request months ago. He didn't have as much of a presence on Facebook as other politicians, and didn't seem to keep up with it. I just checked out his Facebook page. He has a total of 268 friends, 198 of which were added recently. Most of the local politicians I know have well over 1,000 friends, and some are totally maxed out. I have just 4 new friends out of over 650, and Judge Greenwell is still the most recent.
Any updates or rumors?
Did not start as a rampage, but as a targeted killing. He wanted to kill that particular Judge, and may have had help to get it going.
He went on his “rampage” after he assassinated the Judge.
He was in custody. The rampage started when he overcame the affirmative action hire grandmother Deputy Sheriff who was alone watching him in the courthouse, took her gun and then went after the judge and anyone else in his way/nearby. It was a very different, much more preventable event.
Does this have something to do with that Zeta cartel guy being arrested in Dallas?
From the web:
DISTRICT JUDGE TOM GREENWELL SEEKS GOP NOMINATION FOR 13th COURT OF APPEALS
State District Judge Tom Greenwell has announced he will seek the Republican nomination for the 13th Court of Appeals, Place 2 seat in 2012. The seat is currently held by Corpus Christi Republican Rose Vela, who has announced that she will seek the Chief Justice spot on the 13th Court of Appeals.
Greenwell was first elected in 2002 to the 319th District Court in. He won a third term last year after running unopposed and will not have to give up his current seat unless he is elected to the 13th Court of Appeals.
Greenwell leads the county veterans court and has served as a staff attorney on the appeals court and was chief of the courts legal staff from 1991 to 1996. He worked in private practice until he was elected district judge.
Very curious. Why would someone commit suicide if they were about to run for higher office?
This bigoted, tawdry slut looks like a MAN.
He ran for the 13th Court of Appeals in 2012 and lost. There was a very high turnout in the Rio Grande Valley for the Democrats. He told me it was apparent early in the night that he would lose based on the returns from the valley.
I think this death should be handled by a conservative coroner..I don’t trust any of these democrats and do not believe he committed suicide..Look at Holder and Obama they would have more to gain by his death..putting in a liberal judge.
The shot was heard around lunch time. The body was discovered about 7 hours later.
Nueces is Spanish for nuts.
