Opinion

Hello <<First Name>>,

Joe HydeA desperate Tom Green County Commissioners’ Court is about to put a rope around the throats of county taxpayers by creating a new law firm called the Public Defenders Office. The office will employ lawyers and support staff, including the chief public defender, a lawyer, who will be paid almost $200,000 per year. In all, expect this new layer of bureaucracy to cost the taxpayers millions per year and will be set for perpetual growth in budget size forever.

The poison pill is easy to swallow because the county will be awarded a $2,276,676 grant from Texas Indigent Defense Commission to install the bureaucracy. Next, the court will approve interlocal agreements with neighboring counties that are participants of the district courts here. Then, one member of the court will be appointed to an oversight board for the new bureaucracy. Finally, an architect will be hired to design the plush, new offices for the public defenders.

The problem the court is attempting to solve is the rapidly rising costs of providing a court-appointed lawyer to each of the folks charged with crimes who the court deems incapable of paying for one. Up until now, the county pays $75 per hour for attorneys and the pay isn’t good enough to attract enough attorney talent to handle the caseload, some say. A dedicated public defenders office with 8 or so attorneys is the answer, especially if someone else is paying for it. At least someone is paying for it for now.

The hope is that down the road, after the grant money has dried up, that the cost of operating a public defenders office will be less than the current system of hiring local attorneys on a contract hourly cost basis. The other hope is a public defenders office will attract new, young lawyers to move to San Angelo because the office will offer a secure, salaried job.

This is just a hope, however. Have you ever heard of a bureaucracy that shrinks? My prediction is this will become another albatross hung around the necks of county taxpayers that in future years will operate with less efficiency and more cost than the entrepreneurial legal defense system we’ve had in place since time began.

Tom Green County isn’t alone in setting up a multi-million dollar public defenders office. Travis County just opened theirs. Benchmarking Austin isn’t exactly following the conservative mindset that has been a tradition in Tom Green County for more than a century.

More debate should happen over the establishment of the legal defense bureaucracy, but the county commission is out of ideas, like the one I have: How about raising the hourly rate for local lawyers to take on public defense cases? They will vote to enact this monstrosity Tuesday.

Beto O’Rourke group gives $600,000 to Texas House Democrats’ stay in Washington, D.C. "Beto O’Rourke has funneled $600,000 to Texas House Democrats in Washington, D.C., to help fund their stay, which could last for up to another two weeks as the lawmakers attempt to block passage of a GOP election bill at the state Legislature. Powered by People, the group started by the former presidential candidate and El Paso congressman, will wire the funds to the Texas House Democratic Caucus sometime this week, according to state Rep. Armando Walle, D-Houston. The money will be used to help offset costs for lodging, meals and transportation as over 50 Democrats and roughly two dozen staffers stay in the nation’s capital. Members left Texas about 10 days ago and have said they plan to stay out of state until after the special session ends Aug. 6." More at Texas Tribune.

Converted Texas prison gets first immigrant detainees as Gov. Greg Abbott’s border security effort ramps up. "The Texas Department of Criminal Justice said Wednesday that Val Verde County, home to Del Rio, sent three people arrested under Abbott’s border initiative Tuesday to the Briscoe Unit in Dilley, a small town between San Antonio and Laredo. The number of detainees is expected to grow rapidly; the Val Verde county attorney predicted about 50 arrests of immigrants a day, ramping up to as many as 200 daily by August. The Val Verde County sheriff’s office said the Briscoe detainees had been arrested on accusations of criminal trespassing. County officials previously said state police would begin arresting immigrants crossing the border, largely on trespassing and criminal mischief charges — both misdemeanors that could result in up to a year in jail. It’s a novel approach ordered by Abbott to allow state and local law enforcement officers to arrest immigrants for state crimes, since they have no jurisdictional power to arrest someone accused of the federal crime of crossing the border illegally." More at Texas Tribune.

Acid-shooting whip scorpions are roaming a national park in Texas. "Big Bend National Park in southwest Texas is alerting visitors that summer rains are bringing arachnids called vinegaroons "out of their burrows in search of food and love." These three-inch creatures, also known as whip scorpions, can pinch with their heavy mouthparts, according a Facebook post from the national park. They also have long, whip-like tails which can shoot a spray of 85% acetic acid, a main component of vinegar." More at CNN.

New Border Wall Construction Begins near West Texas Town. "A spokesperson for Abbott’s office told Breitbart Texas several border barriers and fencing projects are underway. “Since Governor Abbott announced the border wall construction strategy last month, the Department of Public Safety has been working with local landowners who consent to temporary fencing constructed on their land by Texas Military Department engineers.” As for the project in Eagle Pass, the spokesperson elaborated: “the Texas Department of Transportation has begun clearing vegetation and constructing a concrete barrier on state land after a competitive bidding process.”" More at Breitbart Texas.

Argo Breaks Ground on Highly-Anticipated West Texas Blockchain Infrastructure and Mining Facility. "Argo Blockchain Plc (LSE: ARB; OTCQX: ARBKF), (“Argo” or the “Company”), a global leader in sustainable blockchain infrastructure and cryptocurrency mining, today announced that it has broken ground on its highly-anticipated, renewable energy-focused 200-megawatt (MW) cryptocurrency mining facility in Dickens County, Texas. The new facility will transform Argo’s mining capacity and is expected to be completed in the first half of 2022. Kevin Brendle, Dickens County Judge in Texas, said: “Words cannot begin to explain how thrilled I am to welcome Peter and his team to Dickens County. The management team’s commitment to sustainability and reinvigorating our local economy is exciting, and we look forward to the continued positive impact they will bring to our community.” With the construction of the new site, Argo is expected to add up to 20 new, full-time jobs in Dickens County. The site gives Argo access to up to 800 mW of electrical power." Dickens County is east of Lubbock in the Panhandle. More at Street Insider.

Judge Dismisses Murder Charges After St. Louis Circuit Attorney Repeatedly Fails To Show Up To Court. "St. Louis, MO – A repeat felon accused of murder was allowed to walk free over the weekend after St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner’s office failed to show up to court for multiple hearings on the case. St. Louis Circuit Court Judge Jason Sengheiser called Gardner’s office out for failing to do its job on Friday and said he was left with no options but to dismiss the murder charge against 30-year-old Brian Campbell, KSDK reported. “In a case like this where the Circuit Attorney’s Office has essentially abandoned its duty to prosecute those it charges with crimes, the court must impartially enforce the law and any resultant threat to public safety is the responsibility of the Circuit Attorney’s Office,” Sengheiser said as he dismissed the charge." More at The Police Tribune.

As Illegal border crossings spiked in one Texas area, COVID cases soared by 900 percent. "Rio Grande Valley Sector Chief Patrol Agent Brian Hastings reported that his sector at the Texas-Mexico border alone took into custody more than 15,000 illegal immigrants in one week, the most so far this year. ... The number of people being detained who have tested positive for COVID-19 in the Rio Grande Valley (RGV) Sector alone has increased by 900%. In the first two weeks of July, 135 people being detained tested positive for COVID-19, a 900% increase in confirmed positive cases compared to the previous 14 months, Fox News reported. The RGV sector, which apprehends roughly 2,000 people every day, accounts for 60% of detainees who have tested positive in all of Border Patrol custody. Hastings told KURV 710 AM in McAllen, that more than 40 of his agents have already tested positive this fiscal year." John Soloman's Just the News.

Rasmussen: Biden Not More Popular Than Trump, And Most Voters Like Obama Better.

Outrage sparks across La. cities as asylum seekers dropped off with no warning to officials, groups. "Some of those leaders who say they were left out of the loop include Mayor Sharon Weston Broome, Senator Bill Cassidy, and Congressman Garret Graves. Those who spoke with WAFB say they’re upset with the little to no warning give to local officials. “All of a sudden if you see a surge of people that potentially don’t speak English, people who don’t have no idea where in our community they can be going for help, or what type of assistance are available…these people are potentially homeless like this is just unjust to be doing to folks,” says Congressman Graves. Now the Louisiana Advocates for Immigrants in Detention did write up a civil rights complaint accusing ICE of not following the proper guidelines when it comes to transporting immigrants. They sent the complaint off to Homeland Security and ICE hoping to clean up some of the confusion." More at WAFB Baton Rouge.

It’s 3-days of Everything Cowboy! Think of it as a modern day version of Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show — there are Stars, and Authors, Workshops, and Demos. We have Cowboy Music all day every day — that’s the “western” part of “Country and Western” — it’s folksy, a bit jazzy, a bit bluegrass, a bit bluesy, and nearly always upbeat. Often it’s a ballad, it’s certainly poetic. Toss in a bit of yodeling and fiddle playing and you’ve got the idea!

Well,
ME Someone, Thu, 07/22/2021 - 23:09

 

They deserve it for helping to stop voter suppression, the republicans will attempt to suppress your votes again and again. You have to ask yourself why they would change the laws to limit times you can vote and limit the number of voting machines (mostly in democrat heavy areas no less) in a state where the election results are not even contested (no matter how baseless it would be even if they did.) Not even the republicans that will inevitably comment below me can answer why you would decrease the hours you can vote and only allow very few voting machines (relative to population) if it isn't voter suppression. If you are part of the elderly or disabled they are suppressing your vote the worst, where you will have to jump through multiple hoops to get a mail in ballot. Some of the other provisions in the bill you can argue are for security and integrity, but you still have to ask yourself why now? It's because they lost, and lost bad, and the only way they can win is to cheat and tell their followers that it is in the name of "integrity" when they themselves are severely lacking in that area because of these voter suppression bills in the first place. Republicans can't win democratically so they will not change their party, they will reject democracy.

Also, don't forget that republicans have also left states to prevent legislation from passing, and have been doing it for years. In one instance the republicans that fled Oregon in 2019 holed up with a militia group in Utah and threatened a shootout with police to the point that the Oregon Capitol had to go into lockdown.

Cops and members of law enforcement (including criminal "justice" employees) are some of the worst people in society. We are seeing these reports on a weekly basis, and since these people represent a small percentage of the population that is way too often. Guaranteed he will get some cushy deal if he is even prosecuted or faces any kind of punishment at all once this blows over and out of the public's minds. Notice we have not heard about that cop in San Angelo that hit those parked cars while drunk?

Is this the one where the kids were running from the cops after running a red light then hit this guy? If so this guy should only be charged with leaving the scene of an accident.

"Elder was interviewed during which he admitted he was driving the truck that was involved and did leave the scene of the accident."

The cops would have no evidence he was even in the car if this guy wouldn't have talked.

After reading that I thought, who am I to be concerned if they get the vaccine or not, if some fools want to play games with their life and commit a torturous suicide it is not my business.

ME Someone, Thu, 07/22/2021 - 00:41

 

Won't someone just fill the gap in that market? Isn't that what capitalism is? Or are you unknowingly admitting that capitalism doesn't work when not well regulated? Besides rich people don't have anywhere they can go that will allow them to both be comfortable and keep their money. Most countries that are comfortable have higher tax rates than the US and most countries that have low tax rates are not conducive to a wealthy persons lifestyle. Remember the US taxes people who are US citizens whether they live in the US or not, so if they wanted to avoid even the small amount (% wise) of taxes that some of them pay, then they would have to give up US citizenship. Not to mention quite a few of those "loopholes" they use to avoid taxes would be null if they didn't live on US soil. The US used to have high tax rates for the ultra wealthy from the 30's up until the the mid 80's, even going as high as over 90% in the late 50's and early 60's. You want to fix the debt you only seem to care about when democrats are in office? Tax the rich. Instead republicans (and some democrats) give tax cuts to their rich donors and make the middle class pay for everything.

I have seen 4 recessions in my lifetime. I have seen 3 people I know go from doing what they should (degree, good jobs, house, kids) to bankrupt and nearly on the street because one of them got sick and medical bills wiped them out. I know two people who were set up by the police and found guilty of crimes they didn't do, one of which was set right on appeal, but still can't get back into their field of work because of the arrest for a crime that the police falsified evidence on, yet those officers that planted the evidence and were caught doing so still have their jobs. Billionaires like bezos pay 0 taxes and goto space on the backs of a labor force paid slave wages (Walmart too), so little in fact they have to use government money to even be able to afford to live, then they are called "welfare queens". None of the businesses and banks that screwed the market up and caused the 2008 recession recieved any punishment, yet the guy who steals a loaf of bread to feed his family because of that recession gets 20 years in prison. The government bails out "to big to fail" companies and nobody bats an eye, but when the people of this country desperately need heathcare because people are going into poverty because of it we can't have it because that's "socialism". This country is dying because certain people refuse to help their fellow Americans because they see them as enemies since that is what the rich people tell them to think. I understand your "freedom and opportunity" perfectly.
