  • I talked to someone who went to the Civil War Museum in Fort Worth. You know, that one on west 820 around Lake Worth which you've driven by a thousand times? Verdict: Pretty, pretty good. 
  • There was a shooting death in Forest Hill over the weekend where the 25 year old victim, Roderick Brunswick, listed his hometown as Bridgeport. 
  • Tell me this can't possibly be true:
  • Here's Trump's lawyer acting crazy again. (1) He got mad at that?, (2) He didn't deny worrying about Trump's tweet?, and (3) And what does "Law School" have to do with any of this? 
  • We've got another security guard killing a guy at a strip club. A few weeks back it happened at Roxy Showgirl in north Fort Worth, and last night it happened off of Regal Road and Stemmons in Dallas (it sounds like in the area of Zona Rosa Cabaret.)
  • What a crazy race last night for a Ohio Congressional seat -- a district that is 86% white and which has been strongly Republican for decades There are still 5,038 absentee ballots and 3,435 provisional ballots outstanding. 
  • In women's professional basketball, the team from Las Vegas, after 25 hours of travel due to delayed and cancelled flights, decided they were too tired to play.
  • Man, if this is real, it is shocking: That's alleged audio of embattled car salesman Bart Reagor addressing his employees with a ton of F Bombs. It definitely sounds like him, and you've got to love him bragging about having a mansion on 19th Street in Lubbock. (And he makes Alec Baldwin speaking to the salesmen in Glengarry Glen Ross look like a choir boy.)
  • We've found the dumbest school board in America. The school board for Parkland, Florida (where the mass shooting occurred) was ordered to release some documents to the press but was allowed to make certain redactions. After the documents were provided, someone on Facebook told the paper, "Hey, if you'll just copy and paste that electronic document into Microsoft Word you'll be able to see the redacted text." (Paraphrased.) It worked. Now the school board is urging the court to find the paper in contempt for publishing the text that was supposed to be redacted. Good luck with all that. 
  • The officer in the story below rejected an odd plea bargain offer of, "Admit to hurting the dog and give up you officer certification and we will dismiss the case." At this point, the only thing that will save his career is a Not Guilty verdict. And it's not the strongest of cases against him. 
  • Greg Abbott's "bail bond reform" proposal was nothing more than trying to advance his own political career by using the death of a DPS Trooper. It won't change a thing. And the head of DPS, Steve McCraw, was right by his side when he did it. 
  • I'm telling you, that Manafort trial is getting weird. The judge and the prosecutor continue to fight, and the judge even accused him of crying in court.
  • Messenger: Above The Fold (Today's paper lists the new teachers in the districts around the county, and I noticed Bridgeport has a "Drone teacher.")

          Texas Tech Police Believe Campus Carry Has Made School Safer      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
If you want to get an anti-gunner spun up, just ask them about campus carry. They completely lose their minds over the idea of law-abiding adults being able to carry on a college campus. They just can’t even.

However, proponents of campus carry argue that it makes schools safer. After all, what would have happened at Virginia Tech if an armed student had met the killer during his first stop?

But for most of us, it’s pretty academic. We’re not really on college campuses, so it’s just a discussion topic.

Police on college campuses, however, are there. They’re on campuses each and every day, so they see the reality.

On at least one campus, the police believe campus carry is a good thing and has made their school safer.

Campus carry has been law in Texas for two years now, and Texas Tech police say the law makes the university a safer place.

They say the policy even deters potential active shooters from attempting a mass shooting situation.

“I believe it makes the campus a safer place, to live, learn and educate,” said Amy Ivey, a lieutenant at the Texas Tech Police Department.

Tech police say in a potential active shooter situation, someone might be able to stop it if they are armed.

Now, Texas Tech doesn’t just count on campus carry to make the school safe. They also do active shooter training that also includes going hands-on with a shooter.

That said, there’s something that needs to be talked about that’s not specifically mentioned here, but is implied.

While the Texas Tech police believe campus carry has made their school safer, what they’re not talking about are...Read More HERE

A 25-year-old carjacking suspect is thwarted by a good Samaritan with a concealed carry permit in Littlefield, Texas. (Image source: KLBK-TV video screenshot) 
A suspect reportedly attempted to carjack a woman whose children were still in the vehicle, but a neighbor armed with a concealed carry permit and a firearm intervened.

What are the details?

According to KLBK-TV, Littlefield, Texas, police arrested Ruben Garcia Lopez, 25, for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, assault, terroristic threat, and resisting arrest in connection with the attempted carjacking.
Police said Lopez, who was reportedly armed with a knife, approached a woman and her boyfriend on Thursday afternoon and attempted to carjack her car.
According to the news outlet, a statement from the Littlefield Police Department stated, “A male subject was armed with a knife [and] was assaulting a female and trying to take her car.”
Despite purportedly being assaulted, the woman attempted to get her children out of the vehicle.
The department also said that Lopez reportedly assaulted the woman’s boyfriend, according to KLBK.
KLBK reported that police quoted Lopez as saying, “This was his [expletive] car.”

What about the neighbor?

That’s when a neighbor got home and saw the alleged carjacking in progress. According to KLBK, the neighbor — who, the outlet reported, possesses a concealed carry permit — armed himself with a handgun and approached the suspect.
“He came to the aid of the victims and pointed his weapon at the attacker,” police said, according to the station. According to the report, Lopez backed off and crossed the street.
When police arrived on the scene, Lopez reportedly dropped the knife and proceeded to attack the officer.
Lopez was arrested and taken into custody. According to KLBK, there were no mention of injuries in the police statement.
WNEM-TV reported that Lopez, who is a Littlefield resident, was taken to a nearby medical facility and given medical clearance. From there, police transported Lopez to the Lamb County Jail.

          Random Thursday Morning Thoughts      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   


  • Every weather forecast is basically: "Over the next few days, you may get rain or you may not. If you do, it might be heavy or it might be light." That's basically no forecast at all. 
  • I'm still trying to track it down, but there was a cop and a mayor of a small town near Waco who was one of the first to call 911 at the Twin Peaks biker incident. I think he is now the pastor of a church in Decatur. (It certainly is the same name, I'm just not sure it is the same person.)
  • Trump hasn't tweeted "Witch Hunt" in three days. And, other than complaining that rivers in California run into the Pacific Ocean, he's been pretty calm on Twitter. 
  • "As Reagor-Dykes employees are being 'placed on leave' following the dealerships’ legal troubles, workers are wondering what is the next step for them."
  • There was news yesterday of an alleged sexual assault in a bathroom in a bar/club in Dallas, and cops put out a sketch of the so-called Person of Interest. I looked up the club online and it had a photo gallery. I feel sorry for the DJ depicted in the photo gallery who certainly is not a suspect. 

  • It was very weird yesterday for Southlake PD to highlight two DWI arrests of females who allegedly hit each other while driving different vehicles.  The "thread" had a bit of glee and satisfaction to it. 
  • I also thought it was odd that the Star-Telegram picked up the story and called the ladies "drunk" without using "alleged."
  • Speaking of, this is a very weird Star-Telegram story. At the end of it, it lists twelve products by name (with links) that comprise this gal's make-up.  Prescotte Stokes III is the author.
  • I watched the first episode of Hard Knocks. It is easy to tell why the Cleveland Browns are so bad and the finger points at an entire coaching staff that is sleep-walking. 
  • Some serious hail in Colorado Springs.
  • I wrote about Kobach's scam a few days ago. He just won the Kansas race for Republican nominee for governor a couple of days ago by only 191 votes, and his opponent has demanded a recount. Since Kobach is Secretary of State, he will oversee the recount and refuses to recuse himself. 
  • Nixon walked out of the White House for the last time on this day in 1974. 
  • "There are some men in this world who were born to do our unpleasant jobs for us.” - To Kill a Mockingbird

One focus of my practice has become representing victims in uninsured and underinsured motorist claims.  I literally speak to groups of lawyers throughout Texas trying to educate lawyers about the nuances of these claims.  They are much more complicated than many people think. Most of my speeches are in bigger cities.  I’ve spoken in Houston, Dallas, Austin, El Paso, and Lubbock, among others.  Recently, I did a webinar for a company so that they could reach lawyers in smaller counties. At the end of the webinar, they offered a short recording to explain why I think uninsured/underinsured motorist insurance is so important. I’m sharing the video here. I don’t want to spoil the thrill of the video, but there are several reasons why I think all Texas drivers should buy uninsured/underinsured motorist insurance. First, an estimated 20% of Texas drivers don’t have auto insurance.  If you or your family is hit by one of those drivers,…
