The Man v Media Part One of Two

MIKE
REYNOLDS

Two weeks ago, Harris County


Sheriff Darren Goforth was
brutally murdered while fueling
his vehicle. There is no question

that his killer is a criminal. An


arrest has been made, and hopefully
they got the right guy. Now, all thats left is
the grief of his family, friends, and fellow
police, which is private, and the trial, which
will generate headlines. Liberals blamed
guns for the murder, while conservatives, like
Lt Governor Dan Patrick, blamed the media.
Our selection for the blame is the person that
pulled the trigger.
On August 28, known violent criminal
and crazy person Gilbert Flores was shot
dead by one, and perhaps two, Bexar County
Sheriffs Deputies, while he appeared to be
surrendering. The Bexar County Sheriffs
Offices Public Information Officer vilified
KSAT for making video of the shooting
available. No arrests have been made as of
press time. One shouldnt hold ones breath
expecting any in the near future.
This weeks column is about Patricks
misunderstanding of police work, crime,
media responsibility, and intellectual honesty.
Next week, well cover the BCSOs Public
Information Officers mental challenges.

Patricks Stance: If you see


something, shut up about it.
On September 3, Texas Public Radios
Texas

Standard

invited

Lt

Governor

Patrick on to, apparently, pander to


law enforcement personnel and talk in
circles, occasionally contradicting his own
positions. Host David Brown displayed
magnificent restraint with Patrick, and
asked all the right questions. Patrick
skirted, accused, and left no doubt in any
listeners mind that hes not entirely fit for
statewide leadership. We encourage you
TXCITIZEN.COM

to go to our Facebook page


at
facebook.com/txcitizen,
and have a listen to the tenminute interview. Its pinned
to the top of our page.
Weve
painstakingly
transcribed a portion of the
interview (only to find later that
we could have cut and pasted it from
the Standards website) and printed it below.
This interview was prompted by Patricks
claim that because there were several law
enforcement deaths last month and two
this month, that theres a War on Police,
(despite the fact that firearm-related police
deaths, compared to the same period last
year, are down 24 percent, according to
the National Law Enforcement Officers
Memorial Fund, which has a clear interest
in getting those numbers straight), and that
the media is a prime combatant against
law enforcement. Our analysis of Patricks
assertions follows the transcription.
David Brown: After all weve seen on
television, all the YouTube videos that have
contradicted official police accounts of
incidents involving the use of police force,
theres a lot of skepticism out there. How do
you convince those people?
Lt Gov Dan Patrick: You know, your
type of interview has to stop. When I was
asked to do an interview on NPR I thought to
myself, Do I really want to do this? Theyre
not in the police officers corner. And youve
proven that by your interview.
Brown: How do you mean, sir?
Patrick: Well you have to understand this.
That yes there are people in every profession
who cross the line and should be fired
Brown: Right

Earlier this weEk I got a calL from the owner of
Longhsot. He asked if I was interested in doing
some manual labor. There was a long silence over
the line as I tried to think of the nicest way to
say that I'm not ever interested in doing manual
labor. He told me it was just to unload some
wine from the truck. This seEmed like a
mostly reasonable form of manual labor so I
told him I would help out. I should have
stuck with my gut. What he failed to telL me
was that the truck was loaded down with four
palLets of wine. That's right, folks, we
have four palLets of wine ready for you to
drink. So don't let my back breaking labor
be in vain; come on out and grab a couple

Continued from page 3.
Patrick: Quit focusing on that small
percentage of those in law enforcement who
have made a mistake, or broken the law
themselves. Focus on the men and women
that you and your family depend on

Patrick: everyday to protect your lives.


Cause look - the vast majority of our citizenry
are law-abiding. You know, 100 percent of
the crime is committed by about, in estimate,
fifteen percent of the population. So theres a
small number of police officers, but that is, the
rhetoric about those officers, trying to indicate
that that represents the majority of officers is
what leads to the killing of officers by some
people who are lead in that direction.
Brown: I dont want to be misunderstood
because Im, I hope you dont think that I am
engaging in that rhetoric, in fact one of the
reasons that we wanted to invite you on was
so you could talk about the issue of respect
for law enforcement.
Patrick: Well I did and you wanted to
turn it around with What about, what about,
what about
Brown: No sir, I was, just to be clear,
I wanted to make sure that people who are
listening felt like their questions were being
asked, and thats certainly not something
that Im suggesting, and I wanted to give you
an opportunity to respond so (unintelligble,
Patrick cuts him off).
Patrick: Lets focus on law and order.
Lets focus on the vast majority of law
enforcement officers who every day, and

your job, I dont do this in my job, every
day when they get up and go to work part

those issues. There are official channels

to do that. But we have got to get away

from this confrontational attitude with law


enforcement. They are the thin blue line that
protects society. They are not the problem.

Brown: Mr Lt Governor, if I may follow

up on something, because I think youre


making several important points here. One

of the things that youre pointing out, or that


you seem to be suggesting, at the very least,

is that media has a responsibility here, and


in fact is abrogating that responsibility. You
believe that

Patrick: Yeah, I do. I believe that our


24 hour news cable stations, not all of them,

are pitting people theyre looking for the


ratings, so that they find someone from one

side to go against the other side for ratings,

and all that does is really turn into a lot of


yelling at each other, or hate speech
Brown: But how do they have a
conversation about some of these

Patrick: Well we can have a conversation

about it. But lets have a conversation and

focus on the positives of law enforcement.


Lets focus on those men and women that do a
great job every day. Lets focus on those seven

officers who were killed in August and two in

Second Logan Davidson


Case Ends in Plea Deal
A second person charged the death of Logan
Davidson plea bargained to a lesser offense
of assault and was sentenced to time served.
Enrique Gonzales was originally
charged with murder in the death of Logan,
who was killed after a classmate at Canyon
High School punched him twice. The juvenile
was found guilty of assault after the jury
rejected the original murder charge.
Witness testimony in the trial of the
convicted juvenile accused Gonzales of
goading Logan to throw things at the convicted
juvenile. The incident precipitated the assault
of Logan. Gonzales was also accused of
urging the juvenile to commit the assault.
As part of the deal, the State also agreed
to expunge Gonzales records related to the
trial, except its own case files.

Linecrushers IS BACK!

O

A New Braunfels man charged with posting a


terroristic threat online lost his appeal that the
charges against him are unconstitutional. The
Third Court of Appeals ruled that the penal
statute under which Justin Carter was indicted
is neither overbroad nor vague, and is not a
violation of his First Amendment rights.
Carter posted on Facebook that he
would shoot up a kindergarten, watch the
blood rain down and eat the beating heart
out of one of them.
The opinion was not unexpected, as
threatening speech is not protected by the First
Amendment, said State prosecutor Chari Kelly.
Carters lead attorney, Don Flanary,
argued that the statements were hyperbole and
satire. He had asked District Judge Jack Robison
to dismiss the case on constitutional grounds.
Robison refused, prompting the appeal.
At issue is subsections (a)(4) and (a)(5)
of section 22.07 of the Texas Penal Code:
(a) A person commits an offense if he
threatens to commit any offense involving
violence to any person or property with
intent to: ...
(4) cause impairment or interruption of
public communications, public transportation,
public water, gas, or power supply or other
public services.
(5) place the public or a substantial group
of the public in fear of serious bodily injury.
Carters arguments that the phrases
other public services and substantial
group of the public are overbroad and
vague were dismissed by Appeals.
In its ruling, the Court said that a
statute commits overbreadth if it threatens to
significantly compromise the constitutional
protections of a large group of people.
Because the statute is limited to threats
of violence and falls outside the protections
of the First Amendment, we conclude that
it does not reach a substantial amount of
constitutionally protected conduct, Justice
Melissa Goodwin wrote for the Court.
The Court also dismissed Carters claims
that the penal code is vague. A statute is
unconstitutionally vague, the Court said, if it
is unclear to the public what is illegal and if it
leads to the arbitrary or improperly selective

application of the statute by law enforcement.


Because subsections (a)(4) and (a)
(5) of the terroristic threat statute give a
person of ordinary intelligence a reasonable
opportunity to know what is prohibited and
provide explicit standards to those who
enforce and apply the statute, we hold that
these subsections are not impermissibly
vague, the Justices ruled, noting that a statute
does not have to be mathematically precise.
Carters second argument stated that the
law was unconstitutional as it applied to him
because his comments, taken in context, do
not constitute a true threat. However, the
Justices said the Court could not rule whether
his comments were meant to terrorize because
they are dependent on the facts of the case
which have yet to be developed through trial.
Mr. Flanary continues to misstate the
law the terroristic threat statute is designed
to penalize people who intend to terrorize the
public, prosecutor Kelly said. This is akin to
someone who yells fire in a public theater or
who calls in a bomb threat to a school. The
criminal act is the threat, not whether there
was intent to follow through with the threat.
Flanary said that he will file a petition
for discretionary review to the Court of
Criminal Appeals.

Im gonna make you pain, the defensive


lineman told me.
Despite his poor grasp of the English
language, the statement proved uncannily
prophetic. He indeed made me pain, ending
my collegiate football career.
Football was, is and always shall be a
brutal sport. Many complain that the game is
being made too soft, but these are the same
people who walk away from a car race
disappointed when no one dies.
You neednt have had to played football to
enjoy the game. I enjoy rodeo, but I have never
been atop a half-crazed horned beast. Still,
if you have ever had your face buried in the
mud while underneath 10 other guys, causing
you to feel as if youre suffocating while your
appendages are bent in unnatural angles, the
sport becomes a little more personal.
Because the game is inherently
dangerous, football has gone through many
safety revisions. In 1905, President Theodore
Roosevelt forced the first safety rules of the
game. This was because football claimed the
lives of more people than actually played the
game, a seemingly strange phenomenon likely
due to the collateral damage to spectators at
a time when guns and knives were allowed
(this where the Run and Shoot offense and
the shotgun formation originated). Indeed,
quarterback audibles* werent plays so much
as orders for the caliber needed for the play,
ie; 2-22, 358, 30-30, etc.
When my grandfather played, there were
no helmets and very little, if any, padding.
He bemoaned the days when players started
wearing helmets as girly. However, my
grandfather, who played college ball, had
few teeth, a broken nose and a tendency to
believe he was God during thunderstorms.
My dad, who also played in college,
did have a helmet and some padding. The
helmets in his day, though, were just bits of
leather stitched together (he also had missing
teeth and a broken nose). The leather helmets
would absorb the sweat throughout the game
and weigh 70 pounds by the fourth quarter.
Eventually, the leather helmets transitioned

into plastic ones, but sans facemasks. Still,


those helmets were a marked improvement
over the first helmets, which were made
from the skulls of a players vanquished
foes. Roosevelt put an end to that particular
practice too, a rule which my grandfather
complained of as government overreach.
By the time I played the game, I had
a plastic helmet with a facemask. Because
there was so little, if any, padding inside the
helmets, some of us would stuff the helmet
with newspapers. Newspaper padding didnt
offer much protection, but it would mark the
difference between being confused for a
couple of days after a game and believing
yourself the Almighty Bringer of Thunder.
Those who complain about making the
game safer are missing the point, because
nothing will keep football from being a violent
game. You cant have very big men slam into
one another for technically an hour without
causing pain. No, the point to making the
game safer is to try and avoid debilitating or
even potentially fatal injuries.
The simple fact is that players continue to
get bigger and faster. In my day, guys could
get big, but they were a bit more lumbering,
meaning the quarterbacks could easily run
away. That has changed. Now you have
6-foot-6, 250-pound muscular behemoths
who can run as fast as a quarterback. I
wouldnt want J.J. Watt running full speed
at me in an attempt to do harm without
something or some rule protecting my brain.
Without that, Mr. Watt would be
wearing my skull for the next game.

* If you arent a football fan, an audible


is the stream of gibberish a quarterback yells.
The audibles are coded messages to the
quarterbacks teammates on where to run, who
to hit, etc. To make things more complicated,
those messages are usually prompted by
a key phrase in order to keep the defense
from figuring out the code. All of this begs
the question: If football players can keep all
this straight as well as hundreds of plays to
memorize why do they need special pottery
classes to help them pass through college?

on Sports WITH BRANT FREEMAN

Time for another week in review, and this


week we get to add college football to the
column (yay!) but you may also hear me
complain even more about my Tennessee
Titans, a team which probably none of you
care about (boo!). Hey, I dont heckle you at
your workplace. Lets get started.

HS FOOTBALL: Sweet Moses last week


was awesome. New Braunfels came back
from 21-0 down to beat rival Seguin 29-21,
scoring 22 points in the fourth quarter alone.
Canyon ripped apart East Central 36-16,
rushing for nearly 300 yards (including 126
yards and two TDs for Jonathan Rush). Both
the Unicorns and Cougars are now 1-1, each
bouncing back from disappointing losses in
their respective season openers.
Smithson Valley is 2-0, posting one of the
best wins of the young season in the greater San
Antonio area: 35-28 over Brennan, snapping
the Bears 34-game regular season winning
streak. The Rangers scored the game winning
TD on a 54-yard pass with under a minute to go
in the game. Smithson Valley QB Josh Adkins
stat line: 17 of 25, 328 yards, 3 TD, 0 INT.
The Rangers currently have two QBs starting
for D-1 programs (Parker McKenzie at Abilene
Christian and Garrett Smith at UL-Monroe) and
they could soon have another in Adkins.
This week, New Braunfels is at Madison
(0-2), Canyon hosts Marshall (0-2) and
Smithson Valley is at East Central (0-2).

TCU survived a scare from Minnesota,


Baylor overcame a sluggish first half in a
romp of SMU and Texas A&M looked great
in its win over Arizona State. This all made
Texas 38-3 loss to Notre Dame that much
harder to swallow. 30 first downs to eight.
527 yards of offense to 163. Two of 14 on
third downs. Ugh. Texas box score looked as
good as Rob Schneiders Wikipedia page.
The Longhorns have a chance at redemption
this week against Rice, but the Owls, who
won eight games last season including their
bowl game and their opener 56-16 over
Wagner, wont be a pushover.
For the sake of my Longhorn friends,
heres to hoping UT bounces back, otherwise
they could be in for a long season. The rest of
the Big XII took care of business in Week One
with the exception of Kansas (lost at home to
South Dakota State) which would KILL for Rob
Schneiders Wikipedia page.

MLB: A 2-4 week for the Houston Astros

and a 4-2 week for the Texas Rangers means


that as of this writing, Houstons AL West
lead is down to two games over its in-state
rivals. This week, both teams are playing
within the division (Astros play the As and
Angels, Rangers play the Mariners and As)
and then its a four game series against each
other next week in Arlington.
It used to be these two teams only played
for a boot. Now theyre playing each other for
a division title, which begs the question: Why

Look, the Bobcats are going to be a good

team this season and will in all likelihood be
Mets and Cubs/White Sox. But the Astros and

Rangers dont share a city, just a state, and those
end. But the season opener at Florida State
rivalries work out fine (the NL West has three
just wasnt a fair fight. Texas State played
California teams, the AL West has two teams
admirably in the first half, using big special
teams plays to stay in the game and trailed from California). We need people in Houston
just 21-10 at halftime. In the 2nd half however, and Dallas to hate each other more, not less.
FSU cleaned up its special teams mistakes and
Brant Freeman is a seasoned local sportscaster,
the Seminoles size and speed overwhelmed

ASK A MEXICAN!

By Gustavo Arellano in Mexico, and know what its like to

Dear Mexican: Why is it that


Mexican immigrants like my parents,
who have done well enough in this
country to provide a home (a house,
paid off in 10 years, in white Orange
County}, an education, food, cloths
and toys for their children (namely,
myself and my brother), can
complain about El Hombre Gringo
and his stupid immigration laws, but
when they go down to Tijuana, or to
visit family in La Barca and Zacatecas,
they complain about the prices of
things; the blankets, the jewelry, the
food; about how its tan caro? Call
me a commie, but goddamn, these
people are making shit profit on
their wares. Shouldnt more affluent
people such as my parents be happy
to spread their money around and
help out their fellow country men
and women?
Why do my parents complain
about how El Hombre Gringo treats
us like shit even though we work
hard at the jobs even they wouldnt
do, but when they see one of our
people selling roses on the freeway
off-ramps, they ignore him/her,
and never even think about buying
them from him? At least hes not just
standing there with a cardboard sign
that says Will wurk fur food, so why
make a big stink when I want a damn
blanket at the border crossing (one of
those fabulous warm fuzzy ones, you
know) that costs $32 there, and would
most certainly cost me more than
twice that even in Westminster? Qu
mendiga mierda es eso?
I dont exactly consider myself
Mexican; call me a traitor if you will,
but since I was born in the U.S., raised
around nothing but whites and went
to school with a majority of whites,
I dont identify with the Chicano
culture. But I see what people like
my parents do, people who were born

live in poverty, and I wonder what


mierda their brains are made of, that
they wouldnt try to help out with
something so piddly as buying the
stupid Chicletes that the children at
the border sell. Sure, you cant buy
from all of them, but why refuse to let
me buy the blanket, saying, Oh, hell
come back and lower his price. Well,
he didnt come back, and I never got
my blanket. And he never got the $32
I was more than willing to fork over;
I was actually, going to give him $40
(but dont tell my Dad that, hed mess
his pants) because, who cares?
Too Many More Issues to Mention
Dear Pocho: Loco, youre nothing but
a Chicano. Chicanos are the only people
on Earth who care about poor Mexicans.
Mexicans in Mexico dont give a shit;
Mexican immigrants in the United States not
brainwashed by progressive do-gooders
(SARCASM ALERT to said progressive dogooders, wholl only laugh at jokes that
involve Republicans getting ISISed) talk
nothing but shit about the paisas and nacos
and chntaros in their neighborhoods.
So God bless you for caring about poor
Mexicans, and word to the wise: Stop being
a Linus. The Paramount Swap Meet sells
blankets for cheaper than $32.

Dear Mexican: Does Mexico have


a problem with illegal immigrants
coming into their country for free
healthcare and welfare?
San Miguel de Allende Asshole
Dear Gabacho: No, because were
smarter than thatand look at how great
our immigration policy has worked for us!
