Who´s killing Texas prosecutors?
Chilling mystery leaves county on edge

CNN, by Ed Lavendera & Holly Yan

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 4/1/2013 6:25:53 AM

Kaufman County, Texas -- Frayed nerves and a palpable tension cloak this quiet Texas county as half a dozen agencies hunt for the killer or killers apparently bent on taking out top criminal justice officials. Kaufman County District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife, Cynthia, were found dead in their house Saturday, two months after an assistant district attorney was gunned down in broad daylight outside the county courthouse. The killings have residents and prosecutors in Kaufman County, east of Dallas, on edge -- and on guard. Are the killings the work of a lone wolf or a gang?

Comments:
It´s not just Kaufman County on edge. Most of Texas is goosebumpy about this.

Let´s see, children...What group of people located in close proximity to Texas have demonstrated a willingness to kill police officers, judges, and elected officials with impunity?
Can you say "M-e-x-i-c-an D-r-u-g C-a-r-t-e-l-s " ??

We know fast and furious weapons were recovered at the Brian Terry murder scene, were used in the shooting of at least one other border agent, and were linked to shootings in Phoenix. What´s more, fast and furious guns were used to murder 300 mexican citizens. Are we supposed to believe no more of the 2000 F and F guns are traced to other shootings?

Tin foil time
Is this why Holder/Obama armed the Mexican drug cartels so they could take out law enforcement along the border and blame it on White Supremiicists-justifying their DHS armaments and their war on Conservative America?
They will stop at nothing to destroy America from within while they live like Pashas and close the People´s House.

My criminal analysis skills are amateur, of course, but this may be the work of Mexican drug lords or it may be from the Aryan Brotherhood, but I cannot believe this is some sort of joint effort.

The MSM is being cautious about direct fingerpointing on this but they continue to hint that the Aryan Brotherhood is behind it.This really isn´t much different than the left accusing Palin and Limbaugh for the Az.shootings.No new info or evidence is popping up,so they´re filling in the blanks on who they hope is behind it.

This could have been a simple contract murder and the people behind it were only in it for the money.

From what I have read about the Colorado contract killing, the Mexican gangs and the AB gangs inside the prisons heartily distrust and dislike each other. I´m not sure why either group would need the other. But, as I said earlier, I´m strictly an amateur at deciphering criminal acts.

#11/12, I live in Texas and I ranch near the Mexican border. I´ve experienced the chaos.

Regardless of who the murderers turn out to be, Texas does not play when you get in their courts.
Just ask the New Orleans criminals who couldn´t get back fast enough after Katrina.

Count me in as being skeptical about the Aryans. They are big in parts of Idaho, and I believe if they were going to do something like this, they would have done it long ago in Idaho.

I think it more likely that drug cartels are responsible for this. They have history of criminal activity on this side of the border. Remember that Phoenix is the ´kidnapping´ capitol of the US. I think that F&F is going to blow up in the face of the WH on this one unless the media succeeds in the misdirection they are trying.

My husband just commented to me that he doesn´t believe this is Aryan nation related, because the state government in Texas keeps them pretty well under control. Also, he said the "style" of the attack looks like it is more "Latino", i.e., Mexican drug cartels.

#17 I saw the story of the NO gangs and their move to Texas after Katrina. Bad move. Texas didn´t mess with the NO thugs and the ones that weren´t caught beat a path back to New Orleans only to find their ghetto appartments were bulldozed. They had to find new areas for gang operations. The No cops don´t even go in their dark territories after dark. It´s a war zone but Texas didn´t play with them. Baton Rouge got a spike crime and killings too.

In this case I think it´s either a private vendetta or a MexCartel message and if it´s the latter the killer or killers have melted back into Mexico. The AB I´m doubtful because they would have been doing this in Idaho long ago. AB prison gangs are their thing.

Authorities are no dobt poring over these prosecutors´ active files. The killers are probably to be found among those being prosecuted or soon to be prosecuted.

If I had to hazard a guess as to the perps´ identities, Los Zetas come to mind, since they´re notorious for targeting civilians, and their territory is just below Texas, just below the eastern Rio Grande. Presumably, American criminal groups like the Aryan brotherhood are aware that capital crime in Texas is rewarded by the perp being shackled and nackled (as in NaCl) on the gurney at Huntsville´s Finishing School for the Truly Incorrigible. Los Zetas, for whom murder is in the course of an ordinary day´s work, aren´t impressed by death penalties carried out by the state.

Also, assymetrical warfare keeps everyone stirred up. What we see here is indistinguishable from terrorism, because it is.

This is about drugs or some other major criminal enterprise, I would guess, rather than a personal vendetta by a loner. Where has the murder of officials --prosecutors--taken place in a similar manner--Sicily (mafia), Mexico (drug cartels), pre-cleaned-up Colombia (drug cartels).

There does´t seem to be any clear cut connection between these prosecutors and either the AB or cartels from what I´ve read so far. A lot of DA´s have prosecuted both groups, so why these two prosecutors in particular? If I had to choose a group I´d choose the cartels, but law enforcement shouldn´t just look at the past but at who these men were planning to go after in the future.

There is no apparent evidence of who is responsible but the press seems desperate to blame it on "white supremacists". I´m surprised they haven´t tried to blame the Tea Party. As for me, I´m content to wait for the evidence to come in.

One more post, just for informational purposes. A poster mentioned Los Zetas. Our ranch is 80 miles north of the border and a neighbor has caught LZ members on his place. The border patrol has shown us how to spot the tattoos unique to the Zetas. The Zetas set up relay stations on isolated ranches for their drugs and cash. Nobody in our area travels alone any more and no one travels unarmed. We´re still a long way from Kaufman County, but if they´re in Colorado prisons, they are probably in Kaufman County, Texas.

If this was happening...Who exactly was investigating...because this is where those AK47´s were flowing through

http://www.mysanantonio.com/news/local_news/article/Texas-Fast-and-Furious-2278785.php


By Dan Freedman, Hearst Newspapers


WASHINGTON — Otilio Osorio was just 22 in October 2010 when he bought a Romanian-made Draco AK-47 pistol in Joshua, just outside Fort Worth.

There was nothing remarkable about the sale until the gun, with its serial number obliterated, was identified as one of three weapons used to kill Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agent Jaime Zapata on a highway in Mexico four months later.


But no one put it all together until agents in Dallas arrested Osorio in February, 13 days after Zapata´s death and four months after Osorio bought the Draco.

Now the case of Osorio, as well as his ex-Marine brother Ranferi and their next-door neighbor in the Dallas suburb of Lancaster, Kelvin Leon Morrison, is exhibit A in a relentless effort by congressional Republicans to uncover a Texas version of the flawed tactics used in the Phoenix-based Operation Fast and Furious.

Texas Sen. John Cornyn has demanded answers from Attorney General Eric Holder on whether ATF agents in Texas allowed such guns to “walk” into Mexico in an effort to track them, rather than intercepting them and immediately arresting the purchasers, similar to the botched Operation Fast and Furious in Arizona.

“The attorney general has taken every opportunity to sidestep and stonewall, and until he reassures Texans that gun-walking never occurred in our state, I will continue to press him for answers,”´ Cornyn said.

On upcoming trip, Obama

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will leave Tuesday for a four-nation trip to Asia, looking to recharge a focus on the region, an ambitious initiative that’s been sidetracked by domestic politics and international conflicts elsewhere. Yet even as Obama attempts to boost his effort to emphasize U.S. interest in Asia, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s intervention in Ukraine is complicating efforts to reassure Asian nations _ which share the region with an increasingly assertive China - that the U.S. is committed to their security. The administration’s efforts to refocus U.S. policy toward Asia were already being questioned in the region with the departure

One of the Obama administration’s favorite themes is the idea that Republicans have been waging a “war on women.” Though Democrats may overestimate the appeal of this canard, the notion that troglodyte conservatives seek to send American women back to the 19th century has become a form of conventional wisdom, especially in the liberal mainstream media. But though that war is a piece of fakery rooted in the confusion between political liberalism and gender equality, there is little doubt about the reality of another war on women: the one that is being waged by left-wing ideologues against any female Republican

Turning the tables remains the first refuge of liars called on their mendacity. “I was hurt,” Elizabeth Warren relays in her new autobiography, “and I was angry.” The second-year senator speaks of her 2012 political opponent using her claims of Native American ancestry against her during the campaign. Elizabeth Warren could pass for Bull Connor’s sister. She couldn’t pass for Sitting Bull’s second cousin five times removed. So when the 2012 debate descended into genealogists arguing over whether Warren’s great-great-great grandmother was or wasn’t partly Cherokee, the law-professor-turned-candidate winning the question meant that she had already lost it.

Timing is everything in politics and the latest Fox News poll suggests the timing of the 2014 midterm election could not be worse for President Obama and his fellow Democrats. With public approval of Congress in the single digits, senators and representatives in both parties may face the most challenging political environment of their careers. But the Fox survey makes clear that things aren´t breaking well for Obama, either, and his popularity rating may be the most important factor in determining how Democrats fare in November. Presidents have been unpopular before. Harry Truman´s approval rating sank to 23 percent at

Hillary Clinton and her friends in the media have been testing messages for her expected presidential campaign. The case for her will be built on four pillars: that allegations of her corruption are unfair; that she is highly accomplished; that she is above partisanship; and that she is a woman. The first three are dubious and the fourth will matter less than you may think. Do you remember Webb Hubbell, the McDougals, the missing Rose Law firm billing records, Travelgate, or Hillary’s surprise acumen at high-risk commodities trading? Super PACs and other groups will remind voters of all of these case

WASHINGTON - Election-year memo to Democratic candidates: Don´t talk about the economic recovery. It´s a political loser. So say Democratic strategists in a blunt declaration that such talk skips over "how much trouble people are in, and doesn´t convince them that policymakers really understand or are even focusing on the problems they continue to face." In addition, Stan Greenberg, James Carville and others wrote that in head-to-head polling tests the mere mention of the word "recovery" is trumped by a Republican assertion that the Obama administration has had six years to get the economy moving and its policies haven´t worked. Coincidentally or not,

President Obama has warned that Iran is not open for business, even as the United States has loosened some of its punishing economic sanctions as part of an interim nuclear pact. Yet, on Tuesday morning, Iran had an unlikely visitor: a plane, owned by the Bank of Utah, a community bank in Ogden that has 13 branches throughout the state. Bearing a small American flag on its tail, the aircraft was parked in a highly visible section of Mehrabad Airport in Tehran.

Saying they can no longer ignore the rising prices of health care, some of the most influential medical groups in the nation are recommending that doctors weigh the costs, not just the effectiveness of treatments, as they make decisions about patient care. The shift, little noticed outside the medical establishment but already controversial inside it, suggests that doctors are starting to redefine their roles, from being concerned exclusively about individual patients to exerting influence on how health care dollars are spent. “We understand that we doctors should be and are stewards of the larger society as well as of the patient in

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'

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

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

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

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.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations

Glen Campbell has been suffering from Alzheimer´s for over three years, but the Grammy-winning singer, 78, has recently moved into a facility, PEOPLE has confirmed. "He was moved to an Alzhemier´s facility last week," says a family friend. "I´m not sure what the permanent plan is for him yet. We´ll know more next week." The "Rhinestone Cowboy" crooner first opened up about having Alzheimer´s to PEOPLE in an exclusive 2011 interview. Campbell and his fourth wife, Kim Woolen, decided to go public with the news because Campbell hoped to embark on a final farewell live tour. The couple wanted his

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have
