The Democrats have made Houston a war zone.
Crime rate up132%
Violent crime 224%
Enough is enough
Pair this amount of crime with a 135,000 criminal backlog, and things are only going to get MUCH worse for us. Hidalgo will claim that they haven’t defunded the police. Though, pair the 6% increase to the 223% increase of crime and the funding just doesn’t fit the needs of law enforcement. Nor does this cover cost of living and cost of supplies increases for our police.
The cost break down to a 30-year high inflation per precinct just does not fit the bill. Only way the county will get us out of this mess is by slashing all their socialist programs and throw the entire kitchen sink at the court backlog problem. The county can use the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds because COVID attributed to the court backlogs.
Hey that’s what they voted for. Fuck em all.
This is my home and its sad. I live in the Memorial area of Houston which is actually a great neighborhood, but as soon as I venture to "the edge" to fill my vehicle up with gas, its like watching a reality tv show between the pan handling, the squealing tires, smell of pot coming from vehicles all around...my city has always been a melting pot and there are some good things about that; however, I think there can be such a thing as too much melt. Our kids are now off to college and my wife and I are strongly considering a move.
Authorize the police to shoot offenders caught in the criminal act.
I've not understood how this judge has so much public policy setting authority? Has taken on executive and legislative authority, has been given power of the purse, power of administration, has funding streams and agencies implementing her orders. And as judge she has final authority on her fiats. What gives in Texas to allow this type of dictatorial judiciary? Where are the checks and balances in the system that are built to make her purely an arbiter on the laws written by elected lawmakers and executive administrators?
Even with the liberal judges releasing all the crooks, the county jail is still full.
Fundamental transformation of the government that Obama promised is making the Titanic look like a pleasure cruise. Minus the lifeboats. The Invasion and overthrow will cause some collateral damage - get used to it. Have a life... if you can afford it and aren't a casualty of social justice.
Sheesh! Shaking, shaking, shaking my head.

Gee...what a surprise. Who could have guessed.
