Houston Police Breaking The Law
This weekend the police in Fort Bend County are expecting record numbers of arrests for DWI. They will be out in force to keep the Memorial Day drunk drivers in check. We are always glad to support the boys in blue and we are making this post to remind you guys to always designate a driver. Top 10 Reason to Not Drink and Drive You could kill somebody. You could kill yourself You will spend about $20,000 in lawyer fees, court fees, and criminal fines. It’s just too darn easy to designate a driver. It’s even easier to just call a cab. You are way too cute to spend time in jail. A Driving While Intoxicated conviction will stay on your record forever. You could lose your driver’s license forever. You could lose your job. You could lose your freedom. As you can see, there really is no good reason for anyone to ever drive drunk. It’s a stupid crime committed by people who should really know better. You do not want to face a Texas drug in these circumstances. They are notoriously hard on DWI offenders. How to Find a Good DWI Lawyer Most people find their DWI lawyer on the internet. We did a Google search for “DWI Lawyer” and we found the Law Office of Matt DeLuca. Mr. DeLuca is a DWI Lawyer from the University of Houston Law Center. We’ve read several of his reviews online, and most of his clients are very please with his work. We don’t recommend that you just hire the first lawyer who pops up on a Google search. It is your responsibility to do your research and find the best DWI Lawyer that you can afford. The lawyer you hire should have tons of experience in DWI law. He should have a good mix of reviews on a Yelp page or Google Plus page. He (or she) should be accredited by the State Bar.
When an unarmed and handcuffed man, an amateur El Paso bodybuilder named Daniel Saenz was shot dead by El Paso Police Department officer Jose Flores on March 8, 2013 it was the third fatal law enforcement shooting in the city in less three months and the second deadly shooting by an officer of the law in a week. A grand jury cleared Flores of wrongdoing in the death of Saenz, but now the Texas Attorney’s Office, has forced the El Paso PD to release security video following a freedom of information request from the El Paso Times. The 43 minute-long video shows us what happened that day, and it is not for the faint-hearted. Saenz, 37, had been arrested earlier that day for assaulting an off-duty police officer at a local medical center where, according to reports, he had been behaving erratically. He was being moved from the city’s Downtown jail to hospital after, according to police, slamming head own head into a doorway causing injury. It was during this botched transfer that his life was ended. In the video, officer Flores and an unnamed prisoner transport guard are shown dragging a passive Saenz outside and appearing to talk to him. Saenz is seen to struggle as the men pull him to his feet. He falls to the ground and the two men try to keep him there as he resists with great strength. Saenz can clearly be seen smashing his head against the ground as the guard trying to prevent him from doing so. Jim Jopling, a lawyer with the Combined Law Enforcement Associations of Texas (CLEAT) said Flores and the guard were concerned Saenz would try to move his cuffed hands to the front of his body as he had done several times earlier with surprising ease, according to CLEAT. It was also stated that Saenza was Tasered five times earlier in the day to no effect. On the ground Saenz struggles explosively, pushing off the curb and forcing the guard backward. Flores draws his weapon and fires a single round, hitting him in the back, under his shoulder. Both officer Flores and the guard say the civilian guard’s hand accidentally struck Flores’ weapon when the guard lost his balance. The subsequent autopsy showed the bullet struck bone and ricocheted into his chest. The video ends with the pair performing CPR on Saenz. Paramedics join in the effort to save his life but he died in hospital. These is suggestion Saenz appeared to be high on a drug or drugs, yet a post-mortem toxicology report showed only weightlifting supplements including creatine and lipodrene, no evidence of illicit drugs. However, one further compound, DMMA, which was also found in his system is present in some supplements as well as in some street drugs commonly known as bath salts.
