Re: BLM Disruption in Plano

Again, if the police had done their job to begin with, none of the ensuing action would have occurred. Root cause is agitators illegally blocking a public thoroughfare and placing innocent drivers in danger. In this case, the whole protest was not more than ten minutes in the making when the fellow...

Re: BLM Disruption in Plano

All well and good. Facts remain that the intersection was illegally blocked by people wearing helmets and body armor and who brandished what appeared to be a weapon. Police should have done their job. Do they have standing orders to "go easy" on these BLM agitators?

Re: BLM Disruption in Plano

Even city council has no direct influence in the hiring/firing of the police chief. That is left to the city manager, which is one of the few positions the city council DOES directly appoint. Good argument for looking at changing city government to a strong mayor model, where an elected official an...

Re: Constitutional Hearings

Senate analysis is available online. You can see the side by side comparison of the passed senate version and the passed house version. https://capitol.texas.gov/tlodocs/87R/senateamendana/pdf/HB01927A.pdf Frankly, while I understand and support the Constitutional argument, at this point I would ra...

Re: BLM Disruption in Plano

I will repeat that I disagree with the BLM organization, and I believe the movement is based on a lie. I have little issue with the chief walking with protestors in the street in order to maintain peace and prevent them from obstructing traffic. I will agree that it can be bad optics, but to me, th...

Re: BLM Disruption in Plano

Paxton is right on, but the Plano Chief of Police appears to be a BLM sympathizer. As things begin to escalate I doubt residents will agree with his appeasement approach.

Re: Constitutional Hearings

Here's the response I rec'd from my Democrat lawyer representative. I found it to be a waste of a good email: Thank you for writing me to share your support for House Bill 1927, which would eliminate any requirement that individuals obtain professional instructional in the safe handling of their law...

Re: BLM Disruption in Plano

The reason he was charged was not because he threatened her, but because he struck her. I agree with you that those who blocked traffic should be charged for doing that. However that does not give the guy the right to swing and make contact with someone. BS. Why were none of the rioters charged? He...
