Grief grips neighborhood
San Antonio Express News, by Ana Ley

Original Article

Posted By:john56, 1/26/2013 11:42:02 AM

A day after watching a 6-year-old neighborhood boy fly through the air when he was fatally struck by a teenage driver suspected of being intoxicated, Jane Withers refused to leave the spot where the boy´s mother tried in vain to save him. Overcome by the magnitude of the tragedy that left Brandon Abrams´ family grieving and a 17-year-old jailed on intoxication manslaughter charges, Withers helped set up a makeshift memorial soon after the incident at 6 p.m. Thursday in her Northwest Side neighborhood.

Comments:
Sadly, the dead child was ON THE SIDEWALK waiting for the ice cream truck to arrive. The murderer ... excuse me, the accused murder ... is a 17 year old DRUNK driver (drinking age is 21), without a license, who "lost control" of his truck when he dropped his cell phone. Oh yeah, the immigration folks have placed a hold on the guy, since his "status" as what Dear Leader(US) Obama and his San Antonio stooge, Mayor Castro would call either an "undocumented alien" or a "future Democrat voter" is in question.

While I truly feel sorry whenever something tragic happens to a child ( I´m a grandfather), I sometimes have to wonder if there is a group of entrepenuers that specialize in stuffed animals, candles and flower arrangements to immediately pile on the sidewalks.

The idea of technology was to make life better. It´s gone over the hump by now and every technological innovation will just make life more difficult. But this has not yet been recognized, so we´ll just keep introducing new,clever, glittery gizmos and life will just keep getting more and more meaningless.

I, too, wonder about all the "stuff" piled at these scenes. I do not mean to criticize but I think it is kind of creepy. I think they just don´t know what else to do. I feel the same way when I go to a cemetery and see toys and trinkets piled around a headstone. Condolences to the family. I am very sorry for your loss.

-That stuff has to stop. The cellphone is ridiculous, the drinking,- he said, in reference to the intoxication manslaughter charges. He questioned why a 17-year-old would be -drinking at 5 o´clock in the afternoon.-

It´s what they do. I grew up in SA among mostly Mexican-American kids. They didn´t act like this. It is the illegals who have a disfunctional culture of drunkenness. Until we put an end to the invasion the DUIs, crime and more deaths will escalate.

Failure to enforce existing immigration law costs another innocent U.S. life. I hope there is a God so that this little boy can be in paradise and the drunk Mexican can pay for his crimes in the afterlife, because you know some bleeding heart liberal lawyer will get him off nearly scott free.

As soon as I read the first sentence, I knew that the driver was (1) illegal and (2) likely drunk.

Illegals - doing the drunk driving Americans won´t do.

We are in the age of narcissistic emotional displays. I weep, sob, wail, leave ribbons, cuddly toys, crosses therefore I´m better than you because I show I care. Disease of sentimental and emotional diarrhea.

Amen #1 and #8. BUT I have an idea. Let´s have that 17 year old PUNK look at pictures of injured and dead (that´s DECEASED if you´re a cop) kids. Also let´s have the PUNK take classes in good driving while sober. Yeah that should solve the problem. Personally I think any punk teenager who drives drunk should be beat to death.

When I was a kid one of my 12 year old cousins was hit by a drunk driver and killed. I don´t recall any candlelit vigils or piling of toys and flowers. The neighbors brought food to his family and showed up at the funeral. They were all very good to my aunt for months afterward. I suppose tossing a stuffed critter into the pile means there has to be no personal contact and you can go about your business.

The House Ways and Means Committee released a letter Wednesday detailing what it believes to be criminal misconduct by Lois Lerner, the former IRS official at the center of the ongoing IRS Tea Party targeting scandal. For those who want to understand how partisan bureaucrats can manipulate a powerful federal agency, the letter is a must-read. The list of newly-disclosed acts of political bias and manipulation are astounding:

Austin, Texas -- As he joins three other living presidents Thursday to mark the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act, President Barack Obama honors a measure that helped pave his way to the White House. Obama, along with Presidents George W. Bush, Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter, have converged at the Lyndon B. Johnson Library in Texas to commemorate the historic act, as well as the decades-long movement that spurred its signing.

Hidalgo sheriff resigns
McAllen Monitor [TX], by Jacob Fischler, Dave Hendricks *    Original Article
Posted By: john56- 3/29/2014 9:34:33 PM     Post Reply
Months of speculation and weeks of intensifying rumors reached a crescendo Friday, as Hidalgo County Sheriff Lupe Treviño resigned his post and aborted his decorated four-decade career in Texas law enforcement amid ongoing federal prosecutions of eight lawmen in addition to a former commander and Treviño’s youngest son. The move had been anticipated for weeks, but the fallout from the Hidalgo County’s highest-ranking lawman could still be significant. “The Sheriff’s Office is a very large department with many individuals and assets, hopefully they have the infrastructure in place to keep operations running smoothly

AUSTIN — Democratic Sen. Wendy Davis on Friday released a list of public-sector clients she has represented since 2010, addressing a potential campaign issue in her race for governor. The list provided to the San Antonio Express-News/Houston Chronicle includes the clients she has represented as part of the Newby Davis firm, according to her campaign. It doesn´t include all the public-sector clients represented by the two-person firm she has with Brian Newby, Republican Gov. Rick Perry´s former chief of staff. The list only includes the clients she handles, not those Newby handles, according to her campaign.

SAN ANTONIO — Two election workers at a Southwest Side polling site were chastised this week after Hispanic Republican voters complained the workers attempted to steer them to the Democratic primary. Republican officials said one GOP voter claimed she was told Hispanics are supposed to vote Democrat. The Bexar County Elections Department, responding to a complaint of voter intimidation at Collins Garden Library, said the two election workers serving as greeters were told to stop asking voters to declare their party affiliation in front of other voters.

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.
