Why have we not seen the now famous Ben Crump call a press conference? He stays busy these days as attorney for others accusing police of misconduct around the country. Remember him for his false claims against Galveston officers in the McNeely case?

There is a lesson to be learned here. Do not be a convicted felon, wanted on warrants, attempting to elude Law Enforcement, illegally in possession of a gun and pull said gun on Law Enforcement. Just don't do it.

Peaceful protests is good. I just wonder how many of the protestors are local La Marque citizens. Why? I do not believe many who actually live in La Marque want a gun wielding person with felony warrants on their streets. And I would like the GCDN to publish the list of allegations on those felony warrants. His portrayal as a saintly victim is in-congruent with what he's been doing.

Carlos, all protestors that were identified in the GDN were from Hitchcock, La Marque or Texas City. Joshua was from Hitchcock. A person Joshua age knows people in more than on city. If a march was happening for one of my friends I would go, no matter what city it was in. I did not checked on his Brother or sisters home town. How does it make a difference what city a poetasters is from?

Joshua is dead and it is up to the justice system in Galveston County to find out what happened and not have a trial in the GDN. If I read what you said correctly, because Joshua may have had a record, makes his being shot somehow different than someone that did not have a record.

Once the facts are released, the story may be different. Judgement should be for the jury at the trial, if one happens. Until then, all people are doing is speculating.

Let me repeat, "I do not believe many who actually live in La Marque want a gun wielding person with felony warrants on their streets."

And Jim, not all ONE HUNDRED protestors were identified.

Jim Forsythe

Carlos, since not all ONE HUNDRED protestors were identified, you have no idea what city they live in. If they were from some other city such as Houston, what is wrong with them marching. Did anyone in the march cause a problem?

Does anyone in Santa Fe have felony warrants?

As usual, Jim is reading too much into my statements.

Gary Scoggin

I read your statements because I am always interested in what your secret source is saying. I wish you would come out and share what you think God is telling you directly. But if you are getting Divine revelations you shouldn't beat around the bush. Isaiah and the other prophets came out and said clearly what God told them. I don't understand why you don't do the same. The prophets preferred to be bold rather than coyly pretend they were smarther than everyone else.

Set myself up to ridicule from Liberal pundits in these forums? No thank you. Everything I have posted has been subject to derision. Just sit back and watch God at work.

Jim Forsythe

Carlos, everything I posted is in your statement. You are trying to say that outsiders are not welcome, because they may cause trouble. The march had no problems, but you are trying to find some reason why the march was a bad idea (people from other cities). You were trying to say that if a person has a felony warrant , they must be guilty. You may think If they have a felony warrant, deadly force is justified, even without knowing what the ongoing investigation may find. The results may say the officer was correct, or it may not.

Wait until the Galveston County Sheriff's Office investigation gives it's findings.

Carlos Ponce

Nonsense.

Gary Scoggin

Carlos.... your postings are subject to derision because you raise superfluous issues or make wild predictions and then offer no basis for them. Then when asked to explain you just get more vague and then attack their politics. How can a rational person of any political persuasion take you seriously? Be specific and provide a basis for your assertion. Isntthathowyou taught your students to do proofs?

Carlos Ponce

"you have no idea what city they live in" DID I EVER CLAIM I DID???? Find in my statement where I claimed that. YOU CANNOT. It's not there!

Gary Scoggin

And to your refrain, “Watch God at work,” I watch God at work every day in my life and in the lives of those around me. Seeing so much of it, unless you tell me what to look for, I just may miss it as it could get lost in all His other wonders.

Gary Scoggin

I also hope they were also protesting against the spate of violence which has plagued the county recently. Mr. Feast was, apparently, part of that violence.

Pray and pray some more. The City of La Marque needs it.

Carlos: You state, "Set myself up to ridicule from Liberal pundits in these forums? No thank you. Everything I have posted has been subject to derision." Yet you function as a Troll on every op-ed, every day, and every opinion that doesn't meet your personal view of the world. Worse yet YOU DERIDE just about everyone. And you now play the victim of derision? What does God tell you about pure hypocrisy? And, by the way, claiming God is on your side is pure heresy. You should be hoping you are on God's side! (As if God had such low standards!).
