Mr. 3-2 of the Screwed Up Click
HPD Homicide Division Officers M. Arrington and C. Sharp reported:
Stredic and three friends in his vehicle pulled into a parking lot of a gas station at the above address to purchase alcohol. As Stredic and his friends (Barriere and the two other males) were in the parking lot, for unknown reasons, Stredic removed a shotgun from the trunk of his car and fatally shot Mr. Barriere. Stredic got into his vehicle and fled the scene.
Moments later, Stredic returned to the scene, exited his vehicle, threatened the second male with the shotgun and fled the scene. Stredic then returned to the scene a third time, exited his vehicle and shot the second male. The second male was transported by HFD paramedics to an area hospital. A bystander pumping gas was also injured by the gunfire, but did not require medical attention. The third male friend in the group was not injured. Stredic fled the scene a third time in his vehicle, a silver, four-door 2008 Ford Taurus.
Further investigation developed information on Stredic’s whereabouts and he was taken into custody today (November 15) without incident.
HISD Trustee Jolanda Jones is under fire for sending out a tweet calling President-Elect Donald Trump Hitler 2.0.
Others are now discovering the day old tweet attacking Jones on Twitter.
But in typical Jones style she is not backing down from a fight.
In fact, the reality star is also retweeting news posts about the controversial tweet.
This isn’t the first time Jones has compared Mr. Trump to Nazi leader Adolf Hilter.
It was during a heated debate two months ago between Jones and Angela Box when she first compared Trump to Hitler.
Jones says she is not removing the tweet and not apologizing. She says she stand behind her actions.

President-Elect Donald Trump
The charges keep adding up for the Black Lives Matter activists and other demonstrators who held an anti-Trump rally last week in Houston.
Now, the Factor has learned another protester is being charged with punching a police horse but this time in the throat.
Last week Shere Dore was charged with the same crime.
Now 27 year old Joseph Wade has a warrant out for his arrrest associated with the assault of a police service animal.
This comes after investigators reviewed video of the protest over the weekend and a spokesperson for HPD says Wade was seen striking the horse.
That’s not all.
A charge of harassment of a public servant has been also filed against Wade.
Investigators say during the protest on November 10 Wade spat on a police officer.
He has yet to be arrested on the latest two charges.
On Thursday, November 10, 2016, jurors in the 410th District Court of Montgomery County, Texas (Judge Carolyn Johnson presiding) found Defendant Joel Eric Holder, 45, guilty of Murder and Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon. In a sentencing hearing held Thursday, November 10, 2016, Judge Carolyn Johnson sentenced him to Life in prison on the Murder count and 20 years in prison on the Aggravated Assault count.
At trial, Assistant District Attorneys Donna Berkey and Laura Bond presented evidence that on March 28, 2015, Holder dropped his estranged girlfriend off at a residence in Splendora, and then remained on the property despite requests by the homeowner to leave. At approximately 9:45 a.m., while backing out of the drive way, Holder suddenly drove his truck at James Kiernan and Aaron Lord, causing each to suffer serious bodily injuries. Holder then exited his truck with a tire tool and struck a defenseless Kiernan multiple times as he lay on the ground. Testimony from medical experts revealed that Kiernan died from multiple blunt force injuries. After approximately three hours of deliberation, the jury convicted Holder on two of the three counts submitted, acquitting him on one Aggravated Assault charge.
Judge Johnson considered testimony during the punishment phase of trial from both Holder’s mother, and members of James Kiernan’s family before rendering her verdict assessing his punishment on the murder case at life in prison.
Chief Prosecutor Donna Berkey: “We commend the jury and judge’s hard work in reaching this decision, and this case once again underscores that Montgomery County simply does not tolerate tragic attacks on two of its innocent citizens.”
A local minister and head of several area non-profit organizations has been ordered to federal prison for fraud in connection with a natural disaster, announced U.S. Attorney Kenneth Magidson. Jesse Dunn, 58, of Houston, pleaded guilty March 17, 2016,
Today, U.S. District Judge Lynn Hughes, who accepted the guilty plea, handed Dunn a 66-month sentence. He was further ordered to pay $1,305,800 in restitution to the Small Business Administration (SBA). Dunn will also be required to serve a term of five years of supervised release following completion of the prison term.
From about September 2008 to about December 2010, Dunn falsified numerous documents to the SBA in order to receive disaster relief funds. Hurricane Ike made landfall on Sept. 13, 2008. Shortly thereafter, Dunn applied for an SBA loan on two of his properties for disaster relief funds for his non-profit organization the Aldine Community Care Center. The SBA disbursed a total of $1,300,800 to him in order to fix his properties. Several of those disbursements were based on fictitious documents and/or invoices that he had submitted. A great deal of the money was used for his own personal use, such as numerous gambling trips. To this day, the SBA is still owed the outstanding amount from Dunn.
Dunn was permitted to remain on bond and voluntarily surrender to a U.S. Bureau of Prisons facility to be determined in the near future.
The SBA and the FBI conducted the investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Suzanne Elmilady and Andrew Leuchtmann are prosecuting the case.
