    Can you believe Zillow estimates the value of this house at $1,048,152?

    I'll NEVER understand this! The two Officers are exactly the types of people that we need as Police Officers. As the Chief alluded to: Good Cop, terrific person!

    The suspect, Elmer Manzano, a convicted felon with multiple prior assaults on his record was in custody, detailed just a day before this tragedy occurred. On October 18, HPD Officers responded to a call from Mrs. Santos, stated that her ex-husband, Elmer Manzano, was at the location brandishing a gun threatening Mrs. Santos and her children. HPD Officers took Elmer Manzano into custody that day but Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg declined to take charges, instructing Officers to release him, and return the six bullets he had in his pocket, he was also allowed to keep his gun which he claimed was locked in his safe. Had charges been accepted, Mr. Manzano might be back on the street, but his gun and ammunition would have been seized and held as evidence. No gun would have meant no dead officer and injured officer.

    Elections have consequences.

    District attorney Kim Ogg, who ran in 2016 as a “progressive prosecutor” and became the first Democrat elected to the office in nearly forty years, has drawn criticism from Houston progressive groups for being slow to enact reforms.

    I hope the family sues the ****e out of the DA. Honestly, the Gov. Should start plans to remove the DA.
