Houston police chief slams McConnell and Texas senators on gun violence

Source: Axios

Houston Police chief Art Acevedo slammed Republican senators including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Texas Sens. Ted Cruz and John Cornyn during a news conference Monday for inaction on gun violence.

The big picture: Acevedo criticized the senators two days after a Houston police sergeant was fatally shot while responding to a domestic violence report. Acevedo criticized the Republicans over the long-stalled Violence Against Women Act.


"I donít want to see their little smug faces about how much they care about law enforcement when Iím burying a sergeant because they donít want to p--s off the NRA. Make up your minds, whose side are you on?"

2. Is this the same Art Acevedo who's narcotics officers

murdered 2 innocent people and a dog on a drug raid because one of his narcs lied on a no knock search warrant?

https://www.cnn.com/2019/02/18/us/officer-charged-deadly-houston-raid/index.html

(CNN)A Houston police officer will "more than likely be charged with a serious crime" after lying in a search warrant for a January 28 drug raid in which two people were killed and five officers injured, the Houston police chief said.

Officer Gerald Goines obtained a search warrant by using an unnamed confidential informant to confirm that drugs were being sold in a Harding Street home, according to affidavits obtained by CNN. The affidavits, dated February 14, detail the investigation after the raid.

After the shooting occurred, Goines named informants to investigators, the affidavits state.

Those informants told authorities they had worked with the officer "in the past on several narcotics transactions," but not for the warrant at the Harding Street address, according to the affidavits.
