shouldn’t conservatives be cheering for lowering the number of death row inmates?

November 23rd, 2011 12 comments

instead of cheering high numbers.
why do conservatives consider Texas’s record amount on death row inmates as a win?
they beat every state at the record amount of murderers. that’s a pathetic lose you people are proud of. whichever state has the record amount of abortions certainly isn’t getting any cheers from the left. that’s a tragedy. that’s why we want to provide social programs. so people wont have to resort to murder and thief just to make it to the end of their life.

My opinion has nothing to do with conservative v. liberal arguments. It is based on the death penalty system in action:

For the worst crimes, life without parole is better, for many reasons. I’m against the death penalty not because of sympathy for criminals but because it isn’t effective in reducing crime, prolongs the anguish of families of murder victims, costs a whole lot more than life in prison, and, worst of all, risks executions of innocent people.

The worst thing about it. Errors:
The system can make tragic mistakes. In 2004, the state of Texas executed Cameron Todd Willingham for starting the fire that killed his children. The Texas Forensic Science Commission found that the arson testimony that led to his conviction was based on flawed science. As of today, 138 wrongly convicted people on death row have been exonerated. DNA is rarely available in homicides, often irrelevant (as in Willingham’s case) and can’t guarantee we won’t execute innocent people. Capital juries are dominated by people who favor the death penalty and are more likely to vote to convict.

Keeping killers off the streets for good:
Life without parole, on the books in most states, also prevents reoffending. It means what it says, and spending the rest of your life locked up, knowing you’ll never be free, is no picnic. Two big advantages:
-an innocent person serving life can be released from prison
-life without parole costs less than the death penalty

Costs, a surprise to many people:
Study after study has found that the death penalty is much more expensive than life in prison. Since the stakes are so high, the process is far more complex than for any other kind of criminal case. The largest costs come at the pre-trial and trial stages. These apply whether or not the defendant is convicted, let alone sentenced to death.

Crime reduction (deterrence):
The death penalty doesn’t keep us safer. Homicide rates for states that use the death penalty are consistently higher than for those that don’t. The most recent FBI data confirms this. For people without a conscience, fear of being caught is the best deterrent.

Who gets it:
The death penalty isn’t reserved for the worst crimes, but for defendants with the worst lawyers. It doesn’t apply to people with money. Practically everyone sentenced to death had to rely on an overworked public defender. How many people with money have been executed??

People assume that families of murder victims want the death penalty imposed. It isn’t necessarily so. Some are against it on moral grounds. But even families who have supported the death penalty in principle have testified to the protracted and unavoidable damage that the death penalty process does to families like theirs and that life without parole is an appropriate alternative.

It comes down to whether we should keep the death penalty for retribution or revenge in spite of its flaws and in spite of the huge toll it exacts on society.

Legal question RE: Texas V. Henry "Hank" Skinner?

November 16th, 2011 2 comments

Ok, I have been following this case lately and basically this man was arrested in 1993 and brought up on three homicide charges in the deaths of his then-live-in girlfriend and her two adult-age sons. From day one, Skinner has shouted from the roof-tops that he is innocent, but he was convicted and received The Death Penalty. Originally, his death sentence was scheduled to be carried out on Wednesday, November 9, 2011 (so in just a couple of days from this posting.) However, there was a petition circulated on, and some former attorneys, judges, and politicians from Texas wrote letters to the present-day Governor of Texas asking they (at least temporarily) forego this execution while the fight to save this potentially innocent man’s life continues. Apparently, the prosecutor from the DA’s Office assigned to this case did NOT request DNA testing on every piece of evidence (s)he could have, which included a victim’s RAPE KIT for God’s Sake! Now, I won’t pretend to be a legal expert, or a cop or anything, but I’ve seen far too many episodes of Law & Order: SVU to know that’s one of the FIRST THINGS you take to the crime lab for DNA testing so you make sure you’re busting the right "perp." Now, for the last TEN YEARS OR MORE, Skinner and his attorney have been submitting official requests to the DA’s Office asking that they go through the evidence and whatever wasn’t DNA tested before or during the trial, be DNA tested now because it very well could prove Skinner’s oft-repeated claim of innocence is true. The DA’s Office keeps denying the requests, saying something to the effect that if they wanted EVERYTHING that could have been DNA tested to be DNA tested, they should have asked that it all be DNA tested either before the case went to trial, or at the latest during the trial, but after the trial is over and the defendant is sentenced is too late. Now, again, I’m no lawyer or judge, or legal expert – far from it, actually, but this SCREAMS of Prosecutorial Misconduct to me. To me, this is the equivalent of denial of a fair trial AND denial of Due Process of Law. IMO, they need to hold off on the execution until EVERYTHING is DNA tested, and while waiting, Skinner should be in Gen Pop, or even P.C. not Death Row. If he’s wrong about the DNA vindicating him, or knowingly, flat-out lied about it and he really was the murderer of these three, then don’t delay the execution any further – proceed IMMEDIATELY as soon as the DNA results are in, IMO. However, if he’s right and the DNA shows it wasn’t him, he’s been in prison far too long for an innocent man, so he would deserve to be released right then and there as soon as the DNA cleared him. So, am I right though? Does this sound like a case of Prosecutorial Misconduct? Does a DA/Prosecutor have the right to decide which evidence does or does NOT get DNA tested or which evidence they have that will/won’t be presented during a trial? Does a DA/Prosecutor have the right to tell a potentially innocent Prison Inmate asking for evidence DNA tests, "Sorry man you should have asked for these DNA tests before the trial."? I just want to smack the crap out of this Prosecuting Attorney – it sounds a lot like he cares more about his win/loss record than whether or not he’s got the correct "bad guy" in prison.
Susan S: Thanks. I agree. Someone needs to step in and b**ch smack the Prosecuting Attorney and Judge for letting this farce go on. There is NO harm in running the DNA tests even after the trial. If it proves him innocent, he goes home, if it proves him guilty, he’s dead in 3 days as planned. Just test the damn DNA! I would think it would be worth it to make sure they don’t bump off an innocent man. These people standing in the way of justice need to be dis-barred and jailed for being so stubborn and refusing to process all of the evidence!
@dudleysharp: you raise a few valid points and a compelling argument. I wonder though, if you’re right, why they wait now until about a week before his scheduled execution to go public on (supposedly falsely) claiming all of this and saying they’ve been practically BEGGING for this other evidence to be tested when apparently they asked for it NOT to be tested before the trial started? And why is it that the information I’m reading on this is saying that when the family asked for the rest of it to be tested after the trial the prosecution said no, making the prosecutor look bad, rather than saying the defendant asked for it not to be tested, making the defendant look more and more suspicious and more and more guilty? Something’s not adding up here. I wish I knew the truth – a potentially innocent man’s life is at stake.

Apparently the same local court where he was originally tried has turned down the latest request to test DNA. If he is executed this week (as scheduled) we will never know if Texas got the right person. I believe this is indefensible- and that even death penalty supporters would want to know for sure.

The record label has been out almost as long as Def Jam. In the 90s Houston had some of the most gangster and violent hip-hop, even more so than the West Coast that gets most of the credit for gangster albums. Most of the Rap-A-Lot early releases have gone pretty much unnoticed and only acknowledge by those who dig deep for hip-hop music. So, for this post I’ll be shedding some light on the forgotten city of H-town and some of it’s gem.

In my opinion these are great albums that could make a great addition to your collection:

1991:Geto Boys: We Can’t Be Stopped- This one is a straight classic and it’s what put Texas on the map. I will not going into detail as I feel this album is already known by most fans, who can forget Mind Playing Tricks on Me?

1992 Big Mello: Bone Hard Zaggin- This album is on some pimp-smooth sh*t. The album has great production that’s great for riding in the car and I would dare to say that it’s better than the overrated The Chronic. Mac’s Drive ‘Lac’s is the highlight song in my opinion that would give you that southern player style that represents Texas.

1991:Convicts:Convicts- This album is the best ignorant rap album in history. It has some of the most ignorant views, but it’s done in a way that’s appealing for being so straight forward without holding back. The songs are set to old-style Houston beats, strictly harmonicas and church organs. It’s basically the genius of ignorant rap.

1992: Ganksta N-I-P: The South Park Psycho- This one is simply a horrorcore/gansgter rap album. NIP says some of the most weirdest things on this album, like clamming he has had sex with 90 year old grannies to women having sex with pit bulls. Check out it out, if you like dark topics…

91& 94: Scarface: Mr. Scarface Is Back/The Diary- These two albums are pretty much known by most, so I won’t say anymore.

1993: Seagram: The Dark Road- This rapper is from Oakland and he was shot to death in 96. The guy talks about dark subject matter and life experiences. Seagram makes a lot of reference of the devil, acknowledging Satan as ruler of the world. This is really Sea’s best LP, the dark roads has the old school samples from Tom Tom Club, Isaac Hayes, Zapp, & Chocolate Milk. It also has some groovy feel to it reminiscent to DJ Quik.

BQ: What is your favorite album from Texas?
Out of all those I HIGHLY recommend Big Mello: Bone Hard Zaggin. Dope.
Johnny Blaze: Yeah, definitely check out Bone Hard Zaggin, Mr. Scarface Is Back, The Diary, We Can’t Be Stopped first and see how that goes. The production is old-school southern Texas style, nothing like the east or west…
s. perrotta – sense makes dollas: Yeah I know, sometimes it gets boring to hear the same thing over and over in this section, wu-tang, nas, mobb deep… and yeah I agree Wegonefunkwichamind is dope. I just mentioned these because I felt most people here would like it, and another two of my favorites is 1989: Willie D – Controversy & 1991: O.G. Style – I Know How to Play ‘Em to add to your list…

I’ve got to say – it is hella refreshing to know that someone on here likes early 90s southern hip-hop…

Rap-A-Lot has spawned a lot of great rappers and has an unbelievable back-catalogue of albums – the label has stood the test of time incredibly well and although its well past its peak and influence, its still one of the great hip-hop logos and was crucial in giving southern hip-hop a regional platform to build on – and definitely proved, at least in the long run, that there was more to the south than Bass music…
The label branched out a lot with west coast and midwest acts which I think is notable, and is probably one of the reasons why acts like E-40 and Spice 1 collaborated with so many southern artists and helped promote and expand the south’s appeal…

Geto Boys and Scarface go without saying…

Convicts never did that much for me personally – they had some decent tracks and a great gimmick, but I can’t help but lump into a pile of solid but unremarkable Houston groups like and Too Much Trouble and Trinity Garden Cartel…

I’ve been throwing out Ganksta N-I-P’s Interview With A Killa on a lot of horrorcore-oriented questions and he’s an incredibly underrated rapper skill-wise as well and his debut has stood the test of time well – the southern equivalent of Esham if anything…

Wegonefunkwichamind is my personal favorite of Big Mello’s though – that album is not far away from classic status and epitomises southern g-funk at its finest – raw grooves with deep vocals and lumbering basslines…

Meanwhile Seagram’s probably the closest the west has come to Big L – without the relentless punchlines – his shit was unbelievably raw and The Ville is classic Bay Area shit… the Bay has a plethora of great 90s rappers that never quite got their dues and Sea is definitely one of them…

A few others that would fall into your category…

Blac Monks – Secrets Of The Hidden Temple
Coop MC – Currency
DMG – Rigormortiz
E.S.G. – Sailin’ Da South
5th Ward Boyz – Rated G
Snypaz – Livin’ In The Scope
The Terrorists – Terror Strikes: Always Bizness, Never Personal
Willie D – Play Witcha Mama

BQ: Probably Devin the Dude’s To Tha X-Treme – the production was perfect and its definitely his most varied in terms of subject matter… He’s just so entertaining to listen to and all of his albums have a degree of nostalgia in that they’re really fun and lighthearted but still offer some deep material…

Illegal charged in officer’s death was twice deported what excuse will be made for him by his supporters?

June 3rd, 2011 2 comments

The suspected drunken driver accused of killing a Houston Police officer on Sunday is an illegal immigrant from Mexico who twice tried to lie his way into the United States by claiming to be a U.S. citizen, records show.

Johoan Rodriguez, 26, is accused of driving through police blockages on the 610 North Loop freeway where officers were investigating an accident and striking HPD Officer Kevin Will. Prosecutors said Will, 38, was killed instantly, and his body was dragged along the freeway. Police found a small bag containing of cocaine in Rodriguez’s pocket and preliminary blood tests showed his blood alcohol content was .238 — nearly three times the legal limit, officials said.

When Rodriguez was questioned by police, he seemed disoriented and intoxicated, Harris County Assistant District Attorney Beth Shipley said at Rodriguez’s probable cause hearing.

"He could not tell the officer anything about the crash, and claimed he did not remember being in a crash," Shipley said.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesman Gregory Palmore said today that Rodriguez is an illegal immigrant from Mexico who was deported in 2005 and 2006.

Federal court records show that Rodriguez tried to enter the U.S. through the Brownsville Port of Entry by falsely claiming to be a U.S. citizen on Dec. 29, 2005. Just days after he was deported back to Mexico, he tried again to get in, this time through the Hidalgo Port of Entry, records show. He again claimed to be a U.S. citizen, born in Houston, and showed a Texas driver’s license to support his claim, according to records.

Rodriguez is being held without bail on three felony counts of intoxication manslaughter, evading arrest and drug possession. Immigration officials have filed paperwork to detain Rodriguez if he is released from local custody.

Will’s death is the latest in a string of incidents involving illegal immigrants that have resulted in serious injury or death for Houston police officers. Gary Blankinship, president of the Houston Police Officer’s Association, said rank-and-file union members were "outraged" by Will’s death at the hands of an immigrant who had been previously deported.

"Well, it’s dejavu," he said. "…I’m not too sure what the answer is, but it’s certainly disheartening when you keep seeing police officers killed in the line of duty by illegal aliens.“

In September 2006, Houston Police Officer Rodney Johnson was shot and killed by Juan Leonardo Quintero, an illegal immigrant from Mexico he had arrested during a traffic stop. Quintero had been deported once before after charges of indecency with a child and said he shot Johnson because he was "scared" after he was arrested. Quintero was convicted of capital murder and sentenced to life in prison.

His death and a personal crusade by his widow, HPD Sgt. Joslyn Johnson, fueled calls for greater local police involvement in immigration enforcement.

"I just wish our government would take the initiative and do something about this," Joslyn Johnson said on Tuesday.

On March 5, 2009, Wilfredo Alfaro, an illegal immigrant from El Salvador, shot Houston Police Officer Rick Salter with a Glock pistol as officers broke through the door at his home on East Avenue O. Alfaro was ordered out of the U.S. by an immigration judge in March 2001, returned illegally and was arrested three times before the shooting.

How can illegals be law abiding illegals,so the word illegal really does not mean illegal ? Every day illegals drive on our roads, driving without licenses and insurance. Every day illegals will be using fake or stolen documents for their employment. Seems activists discount fraud or fake documents are excused as long as it is for a better life, certain laws can be broken by illegals, that would have regular citizens sitting in jail. I didn’t know when I joined the military and served my country, that said country would become the land of lawlessness, just like the country they left. Greed, corruption, lying, stealing, cheating, skipping out on paying bills are accepted aspects of life, as long as illegals obtain a better life.Many laws are ignored to advance the cause of illegals. Now illegals doing the above are considered law abiding citizens

I can’t find my deceased friend’s obit b/c takes $. Name: Matthew Herzog (3-19-86 to 10-14-04) Houston, Texas.?

April 22nd, 2011 4 comments

He was a 6th generation Houstonian, and his original obituary is located at (or via the Houston Chronicle, which features mostly all of Houston’s deceased in their "Obituary" section, and the only problem I’m having accessing his obituary, is monetary-wise. They want me to put in my credit card number and charge me $2.95, to actually read my best friend’s obituary. I wasn’t able to make his funeral, because it was private, and none of his friends went (thanks to his sadistic parents) and I REFUSE to pay for something that ought to be FREE! Not to mention that if they charge my credit card the $2.95, it costs about that much to place a charge with the card anyway, so the total would be around $5.00 for reading an obituary of a dearly departed friend of mine, when it should be absolutely free and public (since it’s a public record) anyway. So, if anyone finds Matthew Mark Baker Herzog’s obituary, I would greatly appreciate it, and you would be putting 6 years worth of uncertainty behind me, and help me start to heal my inability to have some closure, seeing that I not only wasn’t allowed to view my friend being placed to rest at his funeral, but also never being able to read anything that was said about him in his final eulogy. He died in Houston, Texas on October 14th of 2004, he was 18 year old, and was killed by off-duty, uninformed police officers, whom he was involved in a lawsuit with, and they had been harassing him for years, ticketing him, etc.. until they finally got what they wanted, which was his death. They harassed him so badly, it started driving him crazy, making him extremely paranoid and emotionally unstable (which is exactly where I think they wanted him to be, mentally) so they could catch him in a snare (that they made) in order to cost him something as precious as his own life. And yes, they sure did, shoot him dead, after years of harassment, lawsuits, and cops following him everywhere he went (which was an everyday occurrence, and many of the times, I was with him, witnessing this crap taking place) to make his short life miserable, and they did that admirably.

So what’s your question?

Was it even worth writing all this for $2.95?

Is Bush has at the nadir of his Presidency by OK a death penalty conviction and execution as President?

April 19th, 2011 4 comments

An extermly sick military veteran has been found guilty of murder and rape in more than one case, and President Bush has polished his record of being a hanging judge of Texas reputation by approving his execution. It is shame to put it perfectly. Bush is good at being a hard ass while he hides behind being a rich boy and a person never held responsible for any of his crimes. It can only be hoped that some day Bush jr will be held responsible for all that he is guilty for in the world today including the deaths of many young American kids in Iraq.

Well I am in agreement with you about Iraq but not sure about the person who has been condemn to death by guilt of rape and murder as the Governor of Texas could he not pardon the poor unfortunate man???I must make it clear I am against any form of capital punishment by anyone state or the killers they should not be killed of two wrongs do not make it right.

My widowed mother threatened to ditch me for Foster Care/City House care in Texas. Is it legally possible?

April 16th, 2011 2 comments

Normally this wouldn’t be a big deal if it was once, but this is the 5th time this year and she says she wants to kick me out because I’m a medical burden and rebellious.

She threatens to have a lawyer sign me over and have me live at city house with life insurance for my dad’s recent death. She also threatened foster care and abandonment in an Ikea store. I want to know if this is legal for her to do any of the above 3.

We have a CPS record for various things but nothing serious. She assaulted me 2 weeks ago but the police blew me off and told me to grow up.

Me: 15/Male/High School Student in texas. Suffering from various medical issues that have to be taken care of ASAP.
Mom: Widowed for a little over a year.

I would REALLY appreciate it if you informed me about the legality of these threats. It sounds possible but then again, don’t all parents want to ditch their kids?

We got into the arguments about my life-threatening case of pectus excavatum.

Yes some days all parents want to ditch their kids and go to the beach. Then the kids come screaming in the house and need lunch and the parents forget about it and tend to their little darlings. I am sorry she is verbalizing these things to you, she sounds like she is at the end of her rope and concerned that she cannot take care of you. Legal, I don’t know. Appropriate to say to your kids, NO. Hope you can find a counselor at your next school and talk to someone about how all this is affecting you.

Looking for info Henry Hall Collin County,Tx?

Heny Hall is actually the father of Voltra &Elegea he was deceased before Elegea died in 1929..A D Hall signed her death certificate.. A.D Hall married a lady by the name of Mary Scruggs she died in 1984 ….To my knowledge Henry Hall has lived in Allen,Texas or Mckinney,Tx (Fairvie,Tx)area….hard to find info on people before social security Henry supposedly born in 1860 and lena in 1870
A D Hall is Henry Hall brother.
help anyone

Could this be them?

1910 Census – Ellis County, Texas
Henry Hall – M – B – 49 – married 10 yrs – TX-UNK-UNK – Farm Laborer
Lena Hall – wife – F – B – 30 – mother of 6 kids, 5 now living – TX-TX-TX

Otra(?) Hall – dau – F – B – 7 – TX-TX-TX
Nora Hall – dau – F – B – 4 – TX-TX-TX
Hubbard Hall – son – M – B – 3 – TX-TX-TX

Evella Hall – dau – F – B – 9 – TX-TX-TX
Henry Hall – son – M – B – 5 – TX-TX-TX

(I bet the "Ida" is really "A.D.", and the census taker just heard it wrong and figured it was a girl).

Here’s A.D. Hall in 1930:

1930 Census – Collin County, TX
A. D. Hall – neg – 27 – widow – TX-TX-TX – Farmer, General Farm
Leoala(??) Hall – sister – neg – 18 – TX-TX-TX
Henry Hall – brother – neg – 16 – TX-TX-TX

The "Leoala" is very hard to read, and I don’t know who that could be if Voltra and Elegea have already died, and if Elegea is the same person as Ezell/Evella. Next door to A.D. is probably their sister Nora:

Jerry Anderson – neg – 42 – TX-TX-TX – Farmer, General Farm
Nora Anderson – wife – neg – 24 – TX-TX-TX

How do I get birth/death certificate copies for a genealogy project?

April 11th, 2011 5 comments

I am trying to apply to a group, the Daughters of the Republic of Texas (I had family that fought in the TX war for independence, have been in TX since the 1700s, etc). I have the genealogy work done, but now I need to actually prove the validity of the family tree and my connection to either an original Texas settler or (this is easier) a person who is already a member of the group. To do this, I will need to get copies of birth certificates from people going from myself back a few generations. My problem is that I am not on very good terms with my father’s side of the family, and there’s no way I can get my grandfather’s records (he is still alive) which effectively stops that search pretty low on the family tree. How else can I go about getting any records?

In some circumstances you can order on line.

Texas began to record vital information in 1903 but a lot of people who were born at home or died at home did not get recorded.
This was pretty much the case until after WW II.

Rootsweb(freesite) has the complete Texas Bureau of Vital Statistic Death Index1903 -2000. Now, you can save a lot of money for those who died between 1903-1976 if you order a copy from Clayton Library, 5300 Caroline, Houston, Texas. They will only charge you $3 for a copy.

You might get birth certificates also but I doubt if you can do so all the way up to 1976. States are clamping down on birth certificates to just anyone due to identity theft. Ancestry.Com has the complete birth index from 1903-2000. Your public library might have a subscription to Ancestry.Com.

If your grandfather is 75 years of age or older, then you probably can get his birth certificate without any problems in Texas.

I might add that Anglo settlements did not come to Texas until the 1800s. Moses Austin asked Spanish authorities for a large tract of land that he would promote and sell to Anglo American pioneers in 1820.

A Spanish settlement from the Canary Island was at San Antonio in the early 1700s.

Does anyone know about Texas laws and regulations regarding sexual offenders?

April 8th, 2011 1 comment

I already asked this quesiton on another area in answers, but I figured I might go to people in various ones to hopefully find someone who knows about this.

Is anyone familiar with deferred adjudication and the Texas regulations for sexual predators?
I was raped by someone a while back, and while I was not able to get a conviction in my case, he was convicted of sexual assult with another person. He threatened to hurt me and track me down a long time ago, but I have still been fearful of him. Throughout the past several years, since he was convicted and forced to register with the sexual predators database for the other case, I have been looking him up periodically and making sure that he is still in the city I left. Well, alot of weird stuff has been going on around my husband and myself,
(such as notes appearing with weird cryptic messages written on them), so I looked on the database and HE’S NOT LISTED ANYMORE. He had deferred adjudication as part of his probation, but previous to these things happening, I had looked on there and his location was in a jail in Dallas about a month ago, and now, there is no record of him. Does anyone know whether he was wiped off of the database because of possible death, (not like that would bother me), or because he might have been found not guilty in an appeal, or if deferred adjudication would have taken his name off as soon as he completed his probation?
Please, no smartelic answers. I cannot find any information about this and I’m not familiar enough with laws about this subject.
jslinder: thank you, but it wasn’t my case that was actually brought to a prosecution. With me, they refused to prosecute, but I found out later that he had done this to an 18 year old male, and was releived that at least he got caught and was being treated the way he deserved, but if he got off for it again, that just means justice doesn’t work at all.

If as a condition of his probation his registry requirement was cleared, then yes, that is possible. An appeal would do it too, deceased are usually marked that way for a while.

As a former victim, you should be able to contact the prosecutors office that handled your case to get an updated status.
