WHY YOU MAY WANT TO AVOID THE WOODLANDS THIS WEEKEND!
I guess I will be locking my doors in the Woodlands this weekend. I just got a detailed report of at least four incidents in the area over the last two days. People are apparently desperate for money and they’re trying to get it by any means necessary. Here’s the list of the crimes that have hit the area:
CARL DANIEL FROM LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA!
Insite special correspondent Carl Daniel is spending a few days in Los Angeles. One of his stops in the City of Angels was Michael Jackson’s star. As you can see from this photo he sent back via his Iphone the star is surrounded by flowers and well wishes from his fans who have made a pilgrimage to LA to say good bye to the King of Pop. Hey Carl, thanks for the picture and keep them coming!
It’s rare that I get excited about another
person’s car. Today that happened. I spotted FOX 26 anchor Mike Barajas pulling in to work. It was the black bullet he was driving that caught my attention. Barajas is the owner of a new 2010 Chevy Camaro. The V8 is super sweet and a super sport. Barajas says it’s the fastest car in the world. I asked the anchorman why a Camaro and he says he’s always been a fan. Hey Mike, thanks for dropping by the Insite with the fancy new ride!
It was just Tuesday when two female Houston firefighters walked into station 54 and were met by messages of hate, racism, sexism, and death. A full scale criminal investigation was launched by the department. Fire Chief Phil Borisikie and Mayor Bill White vowed to hunt down the culprit or culprits. But now apparently the shoe is on the other feet. Reliable sources at the Houston Fire department and in the station say there have been death threats now aimed at the fire fighters who work out of 54. Calls that have come in fast and furious after Tuesday’s events at the airport station were made public. We placed a call to HFD acting Chief Rick Flanagan this afternoon. He says if there have been death threats they haven’t funneled down to his office. A spokesperson at the Houston Police Department also said they were not aware of any death threats. But those inside say they’ve received calls. Meanwhile, our source says many firefighters who work at the station are on edge since Tuesday’s story broke.
I received several calls about the vulgarity in the Washington City Paper. I decided to pull it up and there it was. A very distubring headline!
In mid-June, Donna Watts-Brighthaupt had an encounter with Ward 8 Councilmember Marion Barry. Watts was driving around, taking care of some personal business, when Barry caught sight of her. He made a point of getting her to pull over, and the two quickly got involved in an intense discussion.
The exchange hinged on their roughly yearlong relationship, a bizarre one even by the standards of one of the District’s most-watched womanizers. As Barry attempted to stake out his position on their fortunes, Watts-Brighthaupt was quick to point out the ways in which she felt mistreated. One stood out:
“You put me out in Denver ’cause I wouldn’t suck your dick,” Watts-Brighthaupt yelled at Barry, according to a tape recording of the conversation.
Watts-Brighthaupt was referring to an incident that had occurred about 10 months prior, at the Democratic National Convention. At the time, Watts-Brighthaupt was working on Barry’s ultimately successful re-election campaign and traveled to the Barack Obama-crowning affair. For reasons that remain murky, she ended up assigned to the councilmember’s hotel room in the Crowne Plaza hotel. Once behind closed doors, Barry allegedly asked Watts-Brighthaupt to perform oral sex on him. She refused, whereupon Barry threw her clothes out of the room and barred her from coming back in. She slept in the hotel’s parking garage, in a Cadillac Barry had rented.
The headmaster and pastor of a northeast Harris County christian school is accused of sex crimes against two male students.
Thursday afternoon, a judge quadrupled Darrell Dunn’s bonds to $200,000. Prosecutors believe he’s a flight risk and allege there could be more victims.
Dunn, 51, was arrested at his home in Crosby Thursday morning. He’s charged with one count each of indecency with a child and online solicitation of a minor.
For the past year, the married Dunn is accused of luring two of his students, 14 and 15 year old boys, to his neatly kept home.
Neighbors say they often saw boys at Dunn’s house barbecuing and, more recently, setting off fireworks.
“We asked him about the boys, and he said they were from his church,” said Angel Miranda, a neighbor.
Dunn is the headmaster and pastor of Living Praise Church and Academy on Woodforest Boulevard. The criminal complaint against him accuses Dunn of abusing his authority by inappropriately touching the boys at both the school and his home.
Investigators carried out a search warrant at each place and seized a computer. Assistant District Attorney Eric Devlin says Dunn gained the trust of the boys and their parents. The boys were eventually allowed to spend the night at Dunn’s house.
“Usually there’s a grooming process. In this case he often talked about the male genitalia with these kids. He would start the molestation by telling them he needed to check them for testicular cancer,” said Devlin.
Devlin says Dunn also sent the boys sexually explicit pictures of other students. In May of this year one of the boys made an outcry to his parents. According to Devlin, the boy said he didn’t want Dunn to hurt anyone else.
“I don’t think he just started this one day when he turned 49 and said, ‘You know what, I’m going to start molesting kids.’ It could go back very far.”
Dunn has asked for a court appointed attorney. Prosecutors are asking any more alleged victims to come forward with information.
