Dear South Texas Legislators,

A BILL TO BE ENTITLED AN ACT TO REINSTATE ORIGINAL INTENT OF 74TH LEGISLATURE:

UPDATE CCPD ANOTHER CASE OF EXCESSIVE FORCE

Tasered Suspect Claims Police Brutality
Updated: Dec 16, 2008 11:14 PM



CORPUS CHRISTI - A Navy Corpsman was arrested and tasered for fleeing from police, and now the Corpusman is claiming he was the victim of excessive force and brutality.

A Navy Corpsman had been rushing home to get his fiance her emergency asthma medicines when police tried to pull him over. Police said he violated some traffic laws and refused to pull over.

However, the couple said the department owes them an apology and they have hired a lawyer.

"Her breathing became worse and I panicked," Nicholas Lowry, 26, said.

Lowry's fiance began having an asthma attack and he rushed to get her home Saturday night.

The police report indicated the officer started following the couple as soon as they sped right through the intersection of Baldwin and Ayers.

Lowry drove several blocks before stopping in his own driveway.

"I parked the car, turned the vehicle off, leaned over the window and I tried to tell the officer 'I'm sorry this is a medical emergency'," Lowry said.

However, before he could explain, Lowry said he was tasered, while sitting in his truck. He fell to the ground and was tasered again.

Lowry said things only escalated when Officer W. Hobbs criticized Lowry's service as a Navy Corpsman.

"Then, we walked in[to the jail] and he slammed me into a concrete wall. While taking me in, he laughed in my ear and said I'm gonna throw you in the cell with all the f-----, so they can rape you," Lowry said, of what Hobb's allegedly said.

Lowry's fiance took pictures of how officers scattered his military honors about while searching their truck.

Police said Lowry was already in the process of being cuffed when he tried to elbow the officer and a taser was authorized.

JK: IMHO The sentence below indicates the sentence above is untrue.

They also added that the bottom line was that it is a felony if a driver doesn't pull over for a cop.

"If this gentleman had pulled over, like he's required to do under the law, an ambulance could have been summoned or the officer could have escorted them to the hospital," CCPD Captain Todd Green said.

However, Lowry and his fiance said the behavior from the police was unacceptable .

"I think they should train their people. I felt like a criminal and we didn't do anything wrong," Nicki Redding, Lowry's fiance, said.

"It would be nice for someone to tell the truth and apologize," Lowry stated. "As far as the incident, I've forgiven the officer, I just want these kind of things to stop."

Police said the couple can file a complaint through their Internal Affairs Division and the arresting officer would be investigated.

Also, it's hard to validate that kind of situation because police said there was no dash cam video or recordings of the incident.

The couple is now talking with their lawyer and deciding what legal action they might pursue.

Very Insightful input!

This was my posting that didn't show:

Even though this situation lends itself to many variables which are interpretable and may side on either the student or the CCPD office, I would like to bring up a few points which have not been addressed on prior postings.

1) Did the officer utilize CCPD issued equipment which require disposable charge cartridge replacements?

2) If so, did the CCPD pay for the replacement cartridge on the Taser gun that was used while the "Off Duty" Policeman was "moonlighting"?

3) What does the Charter School Board Policy state as far as corporal and/or physical punishment on students by school faculty?

4) Did we not do away with "shock therapy" in prior historical events namely Adolph Hitler and his experimentations with humans?

5) Before the student was provoked, was the student causing harm to himself or anyone else?

6) As some have stated that there were witnesses, I would pose the question why were the witnesses not given the "taser treatment" to redirect them out of the same area?

7) As a part time employ, the CCPD on site should have to abide by all educational rules and regulations. If a CCPD officer is not informed or properly trained in the Texas State Board of Educators guidelines, then he/she should not even be on a School Campus.

8) It was mentioned that the CCPD was dispatched, did the officer make a special trip to the school or was the officer in the school already? Who dispatched the officer?

9) Where is the surveillance video to protect the Students/Faculty?

10) As an educator, I am really taken back by the fact that School District Employees are mandated to not so much as even touch a student, but a part- time contract security employee can determine at will to taser a student who doesn't bow down before him. Is this the United States of America?

11) Was the officer truly threatened or was he/she wanting to get the taser use up as this was a current issue in the news last week?

12) Has the Charter School notified in writing to the students and the parents of the students attending that charter school that the Tasers are permitted on campus and the use of Tasers are permitted under the Charter Schools Board policy as a use of force and under what conditions that use of force is appropriate?

13) Has a taser ever been used in CCISD campus on a minor student? Why or why not?Who was Rodney Kings Lawyer?

- News -

The lack of statistical comparison notwithstanding, Corpus Christi police say their excessive force complaints are few.

Christopher Gale, a San Antonio lawyer known throughout the state for representing people with excessive force complaints, says otherwise. He claims it's one of the worst in the state for excessive force complaints.

"It's not just a couple of bad seeds. It's a pervasive attitude that you can get away with it, where they feel like they're above it and right now I think they are," Gale said. "I probably get three calls a day regarding complaints about CCPD."

Witnesses including faculty members dispute the events as reported and tell a different story

There are several details that remain unrevealed and there are inaccuracies in this reporter's story.

The sweatbands do not have 3 inch spikes screws or nails. They are about 3/4 inch wood screws. (Why the need to exaggerate?) As far as classifying them as a weapon; I suppose any item with mass and volume can be employed as a weapon and could injure another if the right sequence of events occur. The sweatbands were worn as a form of expression and the only reason they are mentioned is to excuse the unprofessional acts of a whole group of officers who "moonlight" at the Charter School. The article fails to mention the Food fight / riot that occurred a few weeks ago nor does it mention the fights where the CCPD has been dispatched but even more astonishing is the level of violence that went on during these previous events and the use of tasers to regain control or order. In fact, there were no instances where officers used tasers at this campus although the factor of danger in the previous events was exponentially higher.  

The student has worn these sweatbands for the last year and everyday for the entire school year without 1 complaint from faculty or administration. They were not in violation of the campus dress code and the Principal was in contact with the young man daily.

Since when does it become the Police Officers' duty to govern a student's behavior with a citation. A student who is on campus and enters an area that is "off limits" is disciplined by law enforcement? Where are the educators? Surely we will stop short of issuing citations to students who fail tests or even make wrong answers on their homework? Disruptive Behavior...... lets look at this a little closer. The author cites the an Officer Green who says Officer Mendoza said, "The student was in an area of the school that is off limits to students," We should examine the reason this area was off limits and why is it accessible to the students. The structure is now a makeshift building that used to be a Elementary school built a long time ago. So is it up to code? Probably not. Does it contain asbestos? Probably. If he was the only student in the forbidden area then what students did he disrupt and why would an officer say to him I am tired of your shit and it not be included in the report? Then if there was a legitimate reason for writing the student a citation should the officer not involve a campus administrator, should the officer not explain the reasoning for issuing the citation? These points are mentioned because the student repeatedly asked what the citation was for, what did he do to merit the hostility and to conference with the officer and the Principal. The reason the student refused to provide his name and personal information was because the officer refused to inform the student of the allegations, charges and or violations for which personal information was to be used and if in fact the Officer was tired of his shit then why would he still not know the student's name? So when the student refused to give his name because of the Officer's refusal to inform him of the charge for which the student's name was being required; the officer escalated the situation by threats of going to jail and then grabbing the boy and trying slam him into the wall when the student resisted being slammed into the wall and then reclaiming his personal space by instinctively repelling the officer and telling him to get away leave him alone as the student believed the Officer to be acting unlawfully towards him. The officer remained unthreatened physically escalated (threatened) the situation once again, asking the student if "he wanted to get tased" while drawing out his taser. The student once again pleaded with the officer that it was a big misunderstanding and wanted to go talk to the principal so they could settle the situation? He did not know the Principal was off campus. The student raised his hands as a surrendering gesture ( A PAX) and said lets go talk to the principal as he said those words the Officer fired the taser into his chest and remained holding the button down while the student seizured and soiled himself. It was a prolonged shock and it was out of frustration that the officer aced and not out of a physical threat or endangerment.

Witnesses including faculty members dispute the events as reported and  tell a different story and will testify on the student's behalf.



The FBI will be investigating the incident and all other details will remain out of the media until investigation is complete.

The question to be pondered is if the student was attacking / swinging / aggressive towards the officer, then why was the charge of assaulting an officer not filed? If he was using a weapon then why not the charge of assault with a deadly weapon? Good questions right?  The principal was off campus when the incident occurred. The student was never kicked out of any other district, he was placed there for a more structured and supervised environment. The student was one of the better students at the school. The Officers' conduct as a whole was unprofessional and in fact manufactured the events that occurred on 11/11/2008. The actions and the evidence will come to light as the vindication process moves forward. 

Now lets go to the school and start asking some questions and not take the word of a principal and a short tempered officer both who are trying to cover their a$$e$.

Officer uses Taser on unruly student
Officer says student tried to hit him with homemade weapon

Staff Reports
Wednesday, November 12, 2008

CORPUS CHRISTI — An off-duty Corpus Christi police officer used a Taser on a 16-year-old charter school student Tuesday, after the officer said the student tried to strike him with a homemade weapon.

Capt. Todd Green said Officer David Mendoza, who was working security at Cesar E. Chavez Academy at the time of the incident, was going to cite the student at 11:54 a.m. Tuesday on a disruptive activities charge, a misdemeanor, after the student failed to follow the officer's directions to clear a hallway at the school, 3701 Mueller St. The student was in an area of the school that is off limits to students, Green said.

When the teen wouldn't give Mendoza his name, the officer attempted to arrest him and the teen pulled away, pushed Mendoza and swung at the officer with a black sweatband that had several 3-inch nails and screws in it, Green said.

Green said the teen had been warned in the past by police and school officials not to wear the wristband.

Mendoza used his Taser on the teen, who police said wasn't injured. Mendoza suffered a puncture wound to his right thumb and was given a tetanus shot.

The teen was taken to Nueces County Juvenile Justice Center on suspicion of resisting arrest, having a prohibited weapon and disruptive activities.

Green said police supervisors will conduct a review process within the next few days to determine whether Mendoza was justified in using the Taser in this instance. Such a review is standard whenever an officer uses a Taser on someone, Green said.

What are these police doing in schools? They are asked to be there by the administration?

Do kids really understand what this means - having a police officer in school? These are not the kindly, avuncular officers of yesteryear. We are putting trained killers in our schools, and the extent of their power is not explained to kids nor understood by the kids or teachers or administrators.

If a kid can be TAZED for being a punky kid and not giving his name fast enough to satisfy a taser-happy cop then we have a situation ripe for a killing.

This just doesn't sound right to me.

I signed a couple in my school days, and I turned out just fine.

Wow ! Trained killers ? I being a ex cop was never trained to kill . I was trained to protect and uphold the laws of Texas . Did you want the officer to let the kid hit him with a weapon ? The reason kids think they can get away with things like this is becouse of liberal people like you ! And I bet once he or she gets home they will tell there parents I didnt do that . And the parents will run to the first lawyer they see on tv . Yes it is a sad time bro . Yes it is !

I just love to hear comments concerning police in the schools. If the "so-called student" will attack a police officer, he would attack other students, staff members or faculty.

Everyone who complains about a police presence should spent a day in the halls of any high school campus in this city. Threaten a teacher or a police officer and you should expect to be taken down.

This "so-called student" is lucky that his head was not caved-in.

Great job by the police officer...tase any out of control individulals on any CCISD campuses!

these are also not the kindly, avuncular kids of yesteryear.
the police officer was protecting himself and other students around him by using his taser. It seems to me the police officer showed professional restraint with his use of force.

the kid was wielding a weapon which could have caused serious damage. he was not being a "punky" kid as you say.

great job,

In response to 246926, All CCISD schools have Police officer's on campus to help maintain order and protect the students and faculty from the likes of juvienille deliquents walking around with home made weapons, like sweat bands with nails and screws. As far as this particular school, it is a school were unruly kids go after they get suspended from their regular high school, in short a school for trouble makers. So having extra police officers there only makes sense. As far as the kids knowing why the officers are on site, it's because of them and they are well aware of it. This little thug thought he could cause some harm to an officer of the law with a home made weapon he had no buisness having in his possession. This kid should just be thankful he was only tazer and not shot in the head by a bullet for being such a dumb s@hit. That officer had every right to do what he did, to protect himself. As far as arresting him for not giving his name, well he should have gave his name, if he didn't want to get arrested. I can already tell you this punk wil graduate from this alternative school and go to "COLLEGE", or how they like to refer to it as Pen State (penitentiary) where he will graduate with honors, as a member of a prison gang. And you sound like a concerned parent of one of these students, so make sure you explain to them the consequenses of their action before they get tazered as well.

Obviously, the cop was defending himself, and if warranted, could've used deadly force.

However....I still do not understand the following:
"When the juvenile would not give the officer his name, the officer attempted to arrest the juvenile..."

At alternative campuses, the administrators must keep a tight reign. These students have already been expelled from the traditional campuses, so the rules are much stricter and with harsher consequences. Also, the officers can't be expected to remember the names of every student on campus (students at these campuses come and go). So his asking for the student's name is probably standard procedure. And, having been at CCISD campuses, I know what the typical response from one of these students would be: anything ranging from "NOYB" to "go to h**ll" or "WTF do you want to know for?"

Great job by the CCPD Officer. This thug had the 3 inch nails and screws in that sweatband because he was already planning on using it on someone. His 1st mistake was being disruptive in the hallway. 2nd not giving the Officer his name for the citation he was about to recieve. 3rd taking a swing on a Officer with a homemade weapon. 3 strikes, we're out. Hope he enjoyed the shock of his life.

I have seen a police officer at my daughters school but he was in uniform, do they usually work at the school in their own clothing? article states off duty officer? was he employed by this school? Do off duty police officers usually carry their pistols and stun guns? Just trying to figure out why the kid would do this, unless he did not know this guy was an officer. P.O. with their tats and attitude out of their uniform you might confuse them with a thug.

I guess he'll get an opportunity to visit newly-appointed Judge Terry Shamsie's courtroom. Here you go, Terry. Show us how compassionate and firm you can be. Please don't send this little punk home with a little slap on the wrist.

Good job officer. One less roaming the halls and streets looking for the next victim.

Any person , whether it be a man,woman,or in this case punk kid....thinks they can dismiss a police officer after being asked what their name is, deserves whatever comes their way. The officers intuiton was right, punk had a weapon and tried to use it on an officer. At least we're not reading today another kid kills or stabs another student in school.....wake up people

Good point. Did he identify himself as an officer? My daughter once told me that an officer at her school started picking on a student just to get on the guys nerves and then when that boy became agitated he threw him on the floor and arrested him for what I am not sure but again per my daughter this young guy was a good kid? Anyways regardless the kid having a weapon was uncalled for and yes he should be punished.

CCPD policy states one can't work off duty anywhere if not in uniform. The only exception I believe is if the officer works security at an apartment complex where he or she resides and of course if working undercover.

The Supreme Court upheld a state law that makes it a crime to refuse to tell the police one's name when stopped for suspicious behavior, a ruling that strengthens the ability of law enforcement officers to detain citizens even where they lack enough evidence for a full arrest.

I've heard from teachers who, when trying to question or correct a kid in the hallway or at achool, will have the student just walk away and not even address the teacher.

They think that by ignoring authority, they can simply walk away from impending discipline.

Could you imagine what kind of damage he could have done to another student with a weapon like that?

The Bottom Line is that a (KID) was Attacked in School by a Police Officer, just because some fool has a badge does not give him the right to tase a KID. The cop should be tased too to see how it feels, imagine a kid!

Because the kid tried to use a conciled weapon on a POLICE officer, is that so hard to understand? There's a reason that this kid goes to this school and its not because he's too smart for CCISD!!!!!!!

Thats the whole story, no matter what you hand wringers have to say about it.
So now, he will live to commit even more crimes, I'll bet anyone lunch, that this "child" has a record already, and if you chart his future it is full of additional crime and ultimately an early death.

The kid pulled the shank in self defense. He felt threatened by a man who demanded to speak to him, invaded his personal space, and was grabbing him (assaulting him). We later find out it was an officer trying to arrest the kid, but that was never disclosed during the ensuing scuffle. The kid did not know.
In addition, doesn't the kid have the right to have a weapon? I mean, if I can buy truck loads of semi-auto weapons in TX, I guess its ok for this kid to have a homemade weapon, right?

Even though you can buy truckloads of weapons, you cant carry them on school grounds, even if you're a delinquent 17 year old punk. This is the "prison" school within the district, this punk knew the deal when he took that homemade wristband to school.

He's just lucky a LEO confronted him and the punk didn't come across a CHL holder and get capped.

He was tryin to be "hard" in front of his friends which SHOULD tell u right there why the officers are in the schools in the first place. These kids arent playing anymore they are really trying to do some serious harm. And who are you to comment on the way the OFF duty officers look?

Attn: Cesar Chavez Charter Academy Needs Your Attention

A student () at Cesar Chavez Academy was tased by a CCPD moonlighter yesterday 11/11/2008. The use of tasers are in lieu of deadly force and as numerous witnesses state there was no reason for the assault. The Principal Tracy Saenz was off campus when the incident occurred and proceeded to defend the officer as if she were to have witnessed the event. She attempted to discredit the student with exaggerated untruths and when the student learned of the negative remarks made by the Principal tears came to his eyes. He believed that she believed in him. It is requested an impromptu inspection be conducted without forewarning. Incompetence will reveal itself even before the school day begins as there are numerous groups of students and non students on campus without supervision it appears very trashy and in violation of education policy.

Q:
OK People,...let's say adsack for instance; how does one boycott the adsack?

A: It is Simple, people refrain from buying advertising space. Here in South Texas it is customary for Campaigns to place ads in Political Publications such as El Defenzor as it has been the norm for the last decade. As for the article Nueces County Jail Delayed, why does one continue to Acquiesce.

As for the DEBATE w/ Homero, When & Where? I for one would enjoy watching the Joust.

Hell, it would have to be better than Juan Garcia vs. Seaman or even vs Todd Hunter.

BTW, Are the RISD teachers going to get paid today on time?

[http://eldefenzor.blogspot.com/2008/09/shamsies-love-for-robstown-and-throwing.html]
As I was winding up a productive and pleasantly long weekend and contemplated the upcoming elections, I was jolted to reality by a call which stated that Mr. Shamsie was encouraging people to boycott my paper and "not to believe" everything that was printed. The comments were made on 104.9 radio Sunday, August 31, 2008 at 7:55 p.m. on 104.9. Shamsie was a special guest of Mr. Roland Garza whom I have no quarrel unless he seeks one. I would respond IMMEDIATELY TO SHAMSIE and gladly pick up the gauntlet he has thrown down publically by asking FORMER ONE TERM JUDGE TERRY SHAMSIE for an immediate public debate and asking my bloggers to review the following:

1) Why is Terry Shamsie wanting my paper boycotted after he came to me using a carrot and/or stick to shut me up after LENCHO RENDON TRIED THE SAME THING IN MY OWN BARRIO?? Thug tactics don't work and neither does bribery. Please remember that.

2) Interesting that Terry Shamsie Rd. leads right smack dab into the fair grounds and he helped push Abel Herrero to bring that cottage industry investment home to the tune of over 90 million. It's all on the record. Coming soon.

3) Interesting Shamsie is now attacking and blasting the superindentent in Robstown who questioned building contracts, including one middle school that has not been finished. One must question that while on his one term, Shamsie and other commissioners including Peggy Banales, Oscar "Hollywood Ortiz" and even Chuck C. pumped so many dollars into Robstown while the rest of the county did not receive as special attention. Hmmm. Food for thought bloggers.

4) one marvels at why the middle school is not completed and everyone and their sister had subcontract jobs there. Azteca ring a bell?.

5) One marvels at why special contractors and subcontractors get jobs on construction jobs AND OTHERS DO NOT. PERHAPS WE SHOULD AUDIT WHO GOT THOSE JOBS UNDER SHAMSIE'S WATCH?. (see number 4 above).

6) I myself marvel at the shrills of laughter which are recorded in commissioners court regarding the 95 million dollars the taxpayers are fronting on a economic property like the fairgrounds and the whole county has to eat the cost through rising taxes and former Judge Shamsie always prided himself on frugality.
Last count I think it is losing 2 million dollars a year and while people have streets named after them the taxpayers suffer. No wonder our school and property taxes are skyrocketing. Yes I want children in Robstown to have laptops Mr. Shamsie, but I also want children IN THE WHOLE COUNTY TO HAVE THE SAME. Why are you hellbent on restructuring the school board in Robstown and are analyzing the RISD books? Who hired you?What is your end? How much are you getting paid as an accountant or "economic advisor" and what is your long term plan. Everyone knows you are a financial wizard. Hello?

7) Why is the one term judge worried about kids getting a laptop to go to school in Robstown now years after these issues could have been pressed by Judge Shamsie and why is he not concerned about kids at Wynn Seale or Cunningham as much, apparently? Why is he reviewing the RISD school records and has been hired to do so over the summer? Perhaps we should analzye the records and spending for the last 6 years minimum in Nueces County or perhaps others are doing that already. Let's pull a huge beam out of some key people's eye....

SHAMSIE: I will not be shut down, bribed, pushed around or tolerate being boycotted. The backhanded comment to not "buy the paper" and to "boycott" the paper is a way of saying don't buy El Defenzor. Just come out and say it and don't hide behind innuendo. This at least gives me comfort in one way: You are worried my friend, as well you should be. Keep talking on the radio on your show to a strong signal. My voice is growing ever clearer to not a signal but a world wide web which reaches millions, God willing.

And for those who try to characterize El Defenzor as a tabloid not based in fact, well, well, well:
Much more facts, figures and public records coming. The gauntlet has been thrown down by Mr. Shamsie and I am picking it up and challenge him to the utmost gentlemanly debate in public and on radio at his choosing, any time any place, preferably on 104.9 where a boycott was attempted. LET'S CLEAR THE AIR SHALL WE?. Even if 104.9 breaks their word again and tries to keep me off the air or delay me as they did Friday, I still have the blogs, paper and TV and when I am gone 10 more people will pick up the cause. The offer for a debate is here. Will you pick up the glove I have now thrown down? Mr. Shamsie likes quoting facts and figures: SO DO I MY FRIEND AS YOU SHALL SOON SEE AND SOME SHALL BE VERY UNPLEASANT FOR YOU AND YOUR CLICK.

Ha! Not just Shamsie, the crooks in Robstown who are embroiled in all the contracts and steering millions to Robstown at the taxpayers' expense. We are here on this Labor Day weekend. To hell with that pendejo and to hell with Roland "Caga Palo" Garza too. Blast them to the stoneage, Homero. We are tired of them making millions off taxpayers. Why don't you guys go off and do some honest work and make a business that doesn't involve using bonds and making taxpayers pay it off for you and if it loses, so what? The taxpayer gets the bill and you guys made your money. Losers! Your day is coming.

Yes, my bloggers, I am shocked to. I am very disappointed that my business is being blasted on radio by Shamsie in a backhanded way. he is a lawyer, he is smart enough (almost) to not say my newspaper's name but never fear, for every action their is a reaction. This is not about a duel in egos or pride, it is about righting wrongs that have been going on for far too long in Robstown. First Amendment, here we come. Please standby. Politics is one thing, but answering to the public is quite another and it is coming. In a way I am glad the battlelines have been drawn. We seek truth and many seek a buck.

All submissions are posted regardless of position or standing.

Now, to the heart of the matter; the "Shamsie Tick" FKA the "Shamsie Clique" Network of Avarice and Fiscal Loophole Specialties.

Dear Mr. Shamsie,

It is ironic how you entered the Body of Christ via Robstown. You pinched and cut, denied and fired, released and demoted your supporters their families and the community they inspired to elect you. A bang up JOB you performed with fiscal expediency and without one drop of loyalty (except in the end to your cronies).

Mr. Boss of Bosses, Jefe de Jefes, or fiscal deconstructionists (creative accountant); history has proved you a frugal man however one must question the oddball choices of highballin contractors (DOS Logistics & Omega Contracting) without a bid process. It turns out they are your cronies and you knew your days were numbered. Who are they one might ask? They are: Rene Rodriguez, George Finley (CC Distributors), Jaime Capelo, Terry Shamsie, Mack Rodriguez (Rainbow Building), Oscar Ortiz, Mike Rendon, Lencho Rendon and others to be defined. This faction of Politicos, presently are working within the Solomon Machine while biding their time. In the past, this faction has attempted to undermine and overthrow Congressman Ortiz. Randy Delay works under the Blessing of Solomon Grande.


DOS Logistics & Omega Contracting Inc.-

Yet, the county is paying three times the customary rate for engineering and inspection services, according to engineers in government and private practice.Instead of assigning the county's staff engineer to handle the project, Nueces County Judge Terry Shamsie negotiated $7.6 million for engineering with Omega Contracting Inc. and $7.95 million for inspection with DOS Logistics, as the county revamps 280 miles of mostly flat, straight, narrow, non-shouldered rural roadway., Source: CCCT,

DOS Logistics' registered agent is Eric Chin and the company is based in Weslaco, according to records from the Texas Secretary of State. Corpus Christi businessman George Finley said he started the company in 1999 to pursue minority contracts and that he no longer owns it. Source: CCCT
DeLay did legal work
Randy DeLay, a Houston lawyer and lobbyist, whose brother is U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, was the company's registered agent when it was incorporated in 1999. Finley said Randy DeLay's only role with DOS Logistics was handling the legal work of incorporating the company for Finley.Last year, Shamsie and County Commissioner Oscar Ortiz unsuccessfully sought to award DeLay a $1.2 million contract to lobby on behalf of local military installations.

Texas Secretary of State records indicate that Omega Contracting is based in Dallas and belongs to Luis Spinola. Spinola also owns Azteca Enterprises. Both firms are described on their Web site as contractors that seek government contracts set aside for minorities. Source: CCCT



Public Private Strategies-

Regional Transportation Authority Board Chairman Miguel Rendon (Lencho Rendon's Brother) said politics may be the undercurrent motivating two city councilmen who were critical this week of plans to put a rail trolley in downtown Corpus Christi.

Rendon said he suspects City Councilmen Rex Kinnison and Brent Chesney voiced opposition to the trolley because the City Council secretly did not want the RTA to renew a $120,000 contract in January with lobbyist Randy DeLay's company, Private Public Strategy Consulting. DeLay is the brother of House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, a Republican from Sugar Land. Source: CCCT


The Correction Corporations of America (CCA)-

Private Prison-Industrial complex such as the Corrections Corporation of America (CCA), the GEO Group (formerly known as Wackenhut), Correctional Services Corporation (CSC) and Correctional Medical Services.,



The Federal Prison Lobby Bureau of Prisons-
Randy DeLay, the brother of House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-Tex.), lobbied the Bureau of Prisons to send its prisoners to RCDC [Reeves County Detention Facility], at the behest of county officials. Randy DeLay isn't the only member of his family with an interest in corrections. In December, Rep. DeLay accepted a $100,000 check from the CCA for the DeLay Foundation for Kids.,

Does anybody remember the April Primary and the Robstown Private Prison Contractor (LCS) Leverage of Public Opinion that affected the election?

Political ad could alter deal
Nonetheless, the company's owners fired off statements Tuesday and Wednesday through lawyer Tonya Webber questioning why they were being pulled into the political fray and refusing to comment to "rumors or allegations that the negative campaign" had jeopardized the company's plans for the facility.
"LCS Company officials will not respond to questions regarding whether the company will change its plans to build a corrections facility in Nueces County," Webber said. "They will not make that decision until after next Tuesday's election."
Commissioner Betty Jean Longoria said it would be unfortunate if the political ad kills the project. Source: CCCT



CAMPAIGN MUD BEING SLUNG HARDCompany officials refused to comment on whether the ad has now jeopardized the plans to build the corrections facility, saying it might unfairly impact the election.

Lencho Rendon was Pete Alvarez's Political Consultant.

Lencho is allied in business with Randy Delay.

Why would the Louisiana Contractor (Robstown Federal Prison Project) side against a candidate of Lencho Rendon?

Was Lencho squeezed?

WATT were Lencho's intentions regarding Pete Alvarez?

Who wanted to eliminate Alvarez for a candidate they could or thought they could control?

Is that candidate Jimmy Rodriguez or Jim Kaelin?

Is there any truth that Kaelin is being courted (or has received campaign donations) from WATT Democrat?

WATT could Shamsie and Delay (with his Federal Lobby influence) do to affect the Federal Prisoner Removal?

DeLay's company is paid to conduct federal lobbying

Caller-Times reporter Brad Olson wrote that Randy DeLay, through his Washington connections, would have pressed for the appointment of a BRAC commissioner who would be favorably disposed to South Texas bases. Source: CCCT

RTA chairman Mike Rendon and board members Roland Barrera and Joe Benavides said they are pleased with DeLay's lobbying progress. Source: CCCT"I think his strong point is that he knows the members on the Senate and the House," Rendon said. "If you hired me as a lobbyist, I don't have the contacts that he has in the upper echelon of committee members. That is where the influence comes." Source: CCCT





WATT initiated the scrutiny was the abuse of a Political Familia from Robstown. In the past, the Nueces County Jail Conditions have never been an issue. The Jail became an issue only after the scheme to railroad $1.2 million to lobbyist Randy Delay's company Private Public Strategy Consulting was derailed.

Last year, Shamsie and County Commissioner Oscar Ortiz unsuccessfully sought to award DeLay a $1.2 million contract to lobby on behalf of local military installations.

"County Commissioner Betty Jean Longoria said Shamsie was "the driving force" behind the two contracts (DOS Logistics & Omega Contracting Inc). Shamsie recommended the two firms to the commissioners, she said.She said she was anxious to get the project moving because a majority of the roads in need of work are in her precinct and at the time she did not notice that she was never shown any qualifications for either firm, she said."

BRACC, BREAK or BROKE while sacrificing our "money maker" (the Nueces County Jail) was no longer a dilemma for a Lame Duck Nueces County Constitutional Judge (Terry already knew he wasn't coming back) to invoke the Federal Marshal's into his vendetta with Mikal Watts and Larry Olivarez. One phone call to Randy and the Bureau of Prisons went to work.

Was / is Randy Delay with the support of Solomon Grande our Nueces County insider connection to the Federal Prison Lobby?

The RCDC is a private-public partnership in more ways than one. Randy DeLay, the brother of House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R–Tex.), lobbied the Bureau of Prisons to send its prisoners to RCDC, at the behest of county officials.Randy DeLay isn't the only member of his family with an interest in corrections. In December, Rep. DeLay accepted a $100,000 check from the CCA for the DeLay Foundation for Kids.

The Awards (evidenced by Larry Olivarez) and the Federal Prisoner occupancy dividend was never a problem until after the $1.2 Million to DELAY was denied.

For a fellow who conducts his business out of the glare of publicity, Randy DeLay has a way of popping up in headlines - and generating controversies - in these parts.

WHO wanted the Nueces County Jail to be a problem right in the middle of the County Leadership Races?

Randy DeLay was hired to help Reeves County lobby to get more federal inmates from the federal Bureau of Prisons & Reinstate employees JOBS Source: CCCT


Who crashed in during the Primary from Louisiana with concerns about the building of a Private Prison?

"I remember Lencho telling me that his ideal dream team (to help BND) would be (lobbyist) Randy DeLay, (Monterrey consult-ant) Esther Rodriguez and 'Madam Ping,'" Lasseigne said.

A Dream Team of Randy Delay Lobbying in Washington, Solomon Sr. nicely positioned on the House Arms Services Committee and his influential "friends" such as Congressman Ike Skelton, the distract and the DELAY side JOB Lobby at the Federal Bureau of Prisons / CCA / Private Prison Profiteering CON. The Daytime JOB is the Defense Contractor Ocean Shipholdings

Total Defense Contracts, 1998-2003: $1,094,875,569

Ocean Shipholdings Inc. builds, repairs and operates ocean-going marine vessels. Over the past six years, the company ranked as the Pentagon's second-largest provider of marine transportation of equipment.

Many contract dollars are classified as going to a small business or small disadvantaged business (minority-owed, etc.). Set-aside contracts are reserved for small businesses; large companies cannot compete for them.
According to records from the Texas Secretary of State. Corpus Christi businessman George Finley said he started DOS Logistics in 1999 to pursue minority contracts

With the Shamsie Dream Team, the Nueces County housing Federal Prisoners was never an issue, not even when the Mold Contamination was an issue were Federal Marshalls involved. Evidently, the Mold remains even though the Commissioners Court and Shamsie never addressed it (or did they ignore it?).

Our Hearts & Prayers Extend Out To Luz & The Garcia Giraldez Familia. May God Be w/ this Wonderful Lady, Mother, Mother In Law & Grandmother.



All politics aside.......when prayers are needed...............
Posted on May 23, 2008 at 04:57:27 PM by Jaime & D1

May Jesus and His Father Be with Juan & Denise Garcia for her mom and Juan's Mother In Law.

We will be praying for you Luz!!!!!!!!!

***************************************************************************
A mere request that God will heal has no power to gain more of the divine presence than is always at hand."

Lord Jesus,
I come with the leper's boldness
repeating his prayer:
"If you wish, you can make me clean."

Banished from home, family and friends,
he shouldered his way through the crowd
shrinking before him,
afraid and revulsed by his condition.
Yet you welcomed him, O Lord.

I pray his simple prayer,
and I remember too that prayer you spoke
in your aloneness in Gethsemani.

"Father, if you will,
let this cup pass from me."
Help me find peace and strength
in your holy will, O God.
Amen.
