Jim Harris, a behaviorist who has worked with Patch Adams, electioneered against DA Abel Reyna on Sunday Afternoon
WACO – When behaviorist Jim Harris stepped to the lectern to address enthusiasts who had biked in under the first warm and sunny skies in weeks from a 100 mile radius, he was careful to say that the prosecutor – not the police – was in the middle of a campaign of dehumanizing and demonizing their ranks.
A volunteer with the world famous Patch Adams, an innovative medical practitioner who has caught flack for his progressive methods, he was stopped at the Mexican border when he tried to fulfill a commitment to serve at a clinic in that nation’s interior.
He had arrived at the scene of the Twin Peaks debacle on May 17, 2015, and when police detained him for questioning, the DA made a decision he should be charged with – you guessed it – engaging in organized criminal activity. Nearly three years later, he has yet to see a courtroom or had a chance to defend himself against the charge. The truth? Harris is an activist. He rides a motorcycle.
There is no evidence he murdered anyone or participated in assaultive behavior on that fateful day. In fact, the charge and the indictment don’t state that. He is charged with something quite different, and that’s acting in combination with others in an ongoing criminal enterprise that led to those acts.
Sons of Liberty Riders MC President Popeye Moss introduced him by saying there are plenty of people who are guilty as charged, but the sitting DA, who is opposed by Barry Johnson, a seasoned litigator whose career took him to Dallas for 30 years in practice as a managing partner in a firm in that city, is concentrating on people who are wearing a patch of specific colors while others languish in legal limbo.
