    Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo responds to Mr trump "lecturing" the nation's governors. It's an interview that must be seen to be appreciated. The interview is very short and will show everyone why Austin still misses Chief Acevedo. It is very definitely worth it's own thread. Watch it and see why.

    It’s about time someone told the WPE to shut the hell up.

    These are the people we need in government. Not casting blame for failure.

    I would say the same for him. Ask the Tuttles or just recently Nicolas Chavez who was shot on his knees. The report initially said after he came at police officers then he was shot and then the citizen's video came out. Then they back tracked.

    And then you have this. With the dirty cop that had two innocent people killed and officers injured due to his lies. Still both the Chief and the Union president have not apologized to the officers that were injured, or the family of the Tuttles. And for Mr. Chavez, there was the same old bs. We are going to take a good hard look at the video. Art uses the media to his benefit but is an opportunist because he is eyeing a political career after Turner's term.

    Yeah, ask Art about the 6 police-involved shootings alone in the last month and why he won't release the videos.

    I posted earlier about this reject partisan hack from Austin and my post got deleted. Hell, even deep blue Austin don’t want him and sent him packing to HTown. I met the guy in person too, he is one slime ball. You’re right about all the damn shootings under his watch.

    So you disagree with what Chief Acevedo said about trump? I think he said what needed to be said about the damn lunatic, and I certainly agree with him.

    As usual, attempt to find some way to attack the messenger, and Chief Acevedo sent the message loud and clear. trump needs to shut up. He's either trying to create violence or is completely insane. Personally, I think he's both.

    I disagree with him using his title to platform his own political agenda under the guise of civil liberties when under his own police force has had multiple questionable shootings. The worst one that the city will pay millions for was the no knock raid. He has never apologized to the family that his officers killed in their own home. I just don't believe he should be throwing insults to a president when he has not been transparent of his own department to the public.

    He shouldn't have a job after his officers lied on a warrant and ran a home invasion killing people in their house. Change of leadership is needed.

    I always hear this from some people and it makes no sense to me because California is likely the most desirable state to live in inside the USA.

    It would make more sense to reference a state that is less desirable.

    Either way I am not sure Art would do so well in California because he is a republican.

    I have friends in New England who think living in "Taxachusetts" is some form of punishment when in reality it's probably one of the best states to raise a family in the union due to its top ranked k-12 education and ample high skilled job opportunities.

    I shouldve said "back to cali". He claims to be a republican in name only. There is nothing wrong with that. Here is a recent interview.
