yep, if payouts could put a stop to this, it would have ended a long time ago.

Payouts (with tax payer dollars) to protect the guilty is factored into their yearly budgets.

taxpayers have been on the hook for this shit for way too long

Houston is in serious financial shape...most of it due to unfunded liabilities and
police and fire fighters are the biggest issue. So any huge pay out would be a big deal.

Well here last week they had a full blown funeral for a cop dog at a church. Seriously. Firetrucks and all. Gotta pay for that crap. Houston is a LE shakedown anytime you get on the roads there. As now it seems to be with private property

It ain't just Houston.

The nation is police shakedown, property seizures and nickle and dime violations of Nanny State infractions.

Of course when you have a real crime with real victims the police don't have the resources to investigate etc,,,,,, cutbacks and all.

heroic first responders, keeping us all safe.




two killed in their home, is not a shakedown,
it is capital murder, and felony murder for all involved, under texas law.

As far as writing tickets.......Houston police are very lenient. Try Jersey Village or some of the other small municipalities. I got a ticket for "Turning too wide" in Jersey Village a few years ago. They threw it out. Had to take a half day off work though.

Jersey Village sucks. The wait in the median at the speed break on Jones Rd
It goes from 45 to 35 and if you don’t pay very close attention they’ll get you.
