I GUESS HAROLD HURTT WON’T BE VOTING FOR ANNISE PARKER!

PARKER: HURTT IS INEFFECTIVE AS POLICE CHIEF!

I don’t always believe everything I read so I had to make the call myself. I wanted to know if the rumors were true. Some have said Mayoral candidate Annise Parker (City Controller) would fire HPD Police Chief Harold Hurtt if elected. Parker has reportedly said publicly that Hurtt is ineffective. Tuesday night I placed a call to Parker’s press person Jeri Brooks. As usual Brooks got back to me as soon as she could. She issued this quote from Parker: “I have said on multiple occasions that I believe that we need good leadership in the police department. I know the police chief is already looking for a new job but in any case I would expect to replace him if elected Mayor.” So it is true. Hurtt is definitely out of there if Parker is elected. One thing is certain with this revelation, I know Hurtt won’t be voting for Parker!

THE INSITE HAS A NEW TELEVISION AT HEADQUARTERS!

EVERYTHING IS NOW CRYSTAL CLEAR AND BIGGER!

After enduring a 26 inch television in my room for about a year I figured it was time to upgrade. So, initially I upgraded to a 40 inch television. It was just way too big for the bedroom. I ended up back at Best Buy and purchased a 32 inch Insignia LCD television. What did I do that for? After only one night there were ghost images burned on the screen. I immediately took that one back the next day. I finally settled on what I purchased but took back nearly two years ago. I bought the LG. Life’s Good right? It’s my television of choice so I settled on a 37 inch. It’s big for a bedroom but what’s life if you can’t see yourself on the nightly news in 37 inches. Let’s see if I can avoid the headaches I had with LG a few years back. Welcome the new edition to Insite headquarters!

CONTINENTAL AIRLINES GETS POOR RATING!

WHAT KIND OF PROBLEMS HAVE YOU HAD WITH THIS HOUSTON COMPANY?

Flights on U.S. airlines were on time more frequently in April than the month before and improved from a year earlier, according to data released Tuesday by the U.S. Department of Transportation.

Hawaiian Airlines had the best on-time performance, while Comair — a subsidiary of Delta Air Lines Inc. — had the worst. Among legacy carriers.

Northwest Airlines — operated by Atlanta-based Delta — was on-time the most.

And Houston-based company Continental Airlines Inc. posted the worst on-time performance.

Legacy carriers are those airlines that had a large presence in a number of regions before the industry was deregulated in 1978.

The airlines reporting had a combined average on-time rate of 79.1 percent, compared with 78.4 percent in March. Last April the on-time arrival rate was 77.7 percent.

Weather problems were involved in a little less than half of the delays in April — a slight decline from March. Other delays came from congestion, airport operations, maintenance and crew issues.

There are fewer planes in the sky this year, as many carriers have scaled back their flights to meet lower passenger demand.

Reports of mishandled baggage declined in April from March, and were lower than in April 2008 as well.

HAVE YOU SEEN THE SHERIFF LATELY?

MISSING IN ACTION – AT LEAST IN MY BOOK!

Maybe it’s just me but I haven’t seen the newly elected Sheriff Adrian Garcia but once since he took office. Is it that Michael Jackson recluse thing he’s trying to pull off or what? Before he was elected he could be found everywhere pressing the flesh and kissing babies. But he’s been as invisible as well, Sheriff Tommy Thomas who was no where to be found while in office. And I’m not sure if his staff is headed down the right track as well. I put in a call to Keir Murray (spokesperson) today for an interview with the Sheriff about the new Department of Justice report on the jail. But I have yet to hear back from Murray. Is he playing the reclusive role as well? The promises of access and transparency from the new Sheriff is starting to fall short at least in the book of the Insite. Where have you seen the Sheriff lately?

THE WINNERS OF THE LAW ENFORCEMENT ACHIEVEMENT AWARDS!

ZAMORA, SELLERS AND DUNCAN GET THEIR HONORS!

The Houston Police Department is proud to announce that the State of Texas will honor three HPD officers who will receive the 2008 State of Texas Law Enforcement Achievement awards, along with 17 other law enforcement officers from across the state in a ceremony in Austin, Texas on June 11.

Senior Police Officer Christopher D. Duncan, sworn in as an officer in December 1992, is assigned to the Homicide Division/Crime Scene Unit and has developed into a highly skilled and widely respected investigator. In 2000, Officer Duncan received Texas Commission on Law Enforcement Standards and Education (TCLEOSE) certification in providing training in areas of crime scene photography, DNA evidence handling, and forensic anthropology, with presentations at law enforcement seminars at the regional and national level. In 2001, Officer Duncan achieved certification in forensic photography by the International Associate for Identification and in 2003, he graduated from the National Forensic Academy at the University of Tennessee, and has authored articles in several forensic journal publications.

Officer Christopher M. Zamora, sworn in as an officer in July 2006, is assigned to the Central Patrol Division as a night-shift patrol officer. In 2007, Officer Zamora, as a one-man-unit, captured 41 felony suspects, many of whom were armed, in possession of narcotics, stolen vehicles, and other stolen property from robberies. As a two-man- unit, along with his partner, Officer Zamora netted 57 felony arrests. Officer Zamora’s devotion to duty in decreasing crime, as well as his quick response to citizens’ calls, reflects his public service to the City of Houston.

In the aftermath of Hurricane Ike, Officer Sellers conducted welfare checks at numerous apartment complexes with his partner. On September 17, 2008, while talking to an apartment complex manager, Officer Sellers heard a child’s screams for help. As he responded, Officer Sellers saw a male suspect grab a young boy with one hand and in the other he held a sawed-off shotgun. After an unsuccessful attempt to get the boy to safety, Officer Sellers, in fear of his life and that of the child, drew his duty weapon, fired several times and struck the suspect. The suspect, who had the shotgun pointed at the boy’s head, let go of the child and dropped to his knees. As Officer Seller’s partner got the boy to safety, Officer Sellers gave repeated commands for the suspect to drop the weapon, which the suspect ignored. Officer Sellers again discharged his duty weapon and fatally wounded the armed suspect. It was later determined the suspect was a known narcotics user and had threatened neighborhood children for some time. Officer Sellers’ courageous actions saved the life of the child and made the neighborhood safer.

The ceremony honoring these three Houston police officers will take place on Thursday, June 11, 1100 Congress Avenue in Austin, Texas, State Capitol Building, Extension Auditorium, Room E-1.004. There will be a reception following the ceremony.

GIVING THE GIFT OF LIFE TO A BROTHER IN BLUE!

WILL YOU SUPPORT THIS HOUSTON POLICE OFFICER?


Dozens of Houston police officers lined up Monday to give the gift of life. They were donating blood to Senior Police Officer Lloyd Morrison. He was hit not once but twice last month by two suspected drunk drivers. We’re told his legs and one of his arms were broken. As a result of the extensive surgeries Morrison needed blood donated. The Life truck showed up and the officers showed out. The goal was at least 40 donors but while I was there the number surpassed that and hours of giving were extended. There will also be a fundraiser for Morrison in July which includes a barbecue plate sale and the raffling of an AR-15. Get your tickets!
