Jury setled earlier case of no-lights pursuit by Sheriff’s car in acquittal

McLennan County Sheriff Parnell McNamra

Waco – When David Montgomery, 29, saw the headlights fly up on his rear bumper, he had no way of knowing he was followed by a McLennan County patrol unit.

It was a dark night in April, 2014, he was driving down a lonely gravel road in rural country, and he was taking no chances. People come to grief on these rural roads.

A younger sister of his had in the recent past sustained a gunshot wound from a .223 caliber round that penetrated the door of a pickup truck, traveled through and through her right thigh, and wound up in the calf of her left leg.

When aggressive drivers show up on a rear bumper burning their high beams on the back of your neck in McLennan County, Texas, it’s no time to stop and talk it over.

Montgomery poured on the coal, found a place to pull over, and killed his headlights. Then he turned on his “KC” grill-mounted lights so he could be seen from in front, but not from behind, and hit the gas.

It was then, and only then, that Deputy Ewing turned on his emergency flashing lights. Seeing he was pursued by a police officer, Montgomery became obedient; he pulled over immediately at Ewing’s direction.

Because the deputy did not activate his emergency lights, there was no video of the original portion of his pursuit. The video that finally emerged showed only the part where Montgomery pulled over after Ewing turned on the flashing lights.

The deputy arrested Montgomery for reckless driving, but said all along he could have charged him with the more serious offense of evading arrest.

That’s the offense McLennan County Sgt. Chris Eubank charged a black man with in east Waco in March, 2015, after he pursued him with no emergency lights at speeds of more than 80 miles per hour through city streets, according to an investigation by the Waco Police Department. The man finally crashed his car, flipping it. The impact of the car striking a curb, clipping a light pole, and flipping “at least once,” according to another deputy who witnessed the accident, ejected the passenger from the vehicle. He sustained a serious head injury.

Similarly, in that case, there is no video of Eubank’s original chase, but the Sheriff’s Office has declined to release a dashcam video made by another officer who turned on his lights before the driver of the suspect vehicle crashed and flipped the car he was driving.

In an affidavit of probable cause for an arrest warrant, an investigator showed no real probable cause for the pursuit, and no real evidence of evasion of arrest. He merely stated that the car was traveling at a high rate of speed and was “all over the road.”  The judge signed the warrant, anyway. It is dated “the 15 day of 2015,” and the man is charged with felony evasion of arrest.

That is all part of a huge ongoing dispute between the Waco Police and the Sheriff’s Office. Eubank has lied, both in person, and in a memo sent to an Assistant Chief of Police, claiming he was not in pursuit of the vehicle, when the truth is, he was heard on an audio saying the suspect vehicle was running from him.

In a dashcam video made of the accident investigation, one Waco police officer is heard telling another that Sheriff’s Officers had “said earlier they were coming over here (east Waco) to stir up some shit.”

But Johnathan Montgomery got no points for being white while driving in the country. He made 12 pre-trial appearances spread over a period of one year, spent $1,800 in attorney’s fees and bond payments, and finally stood trial before jurors who deliberated for a mere 10 minutes before they returned a verdict of not guilty.

A member of his family, who, fearing retaliation, requested anonymity,  said “The DA kept repeating to the jury that reckless driving was punishable for up to three years in jail – ugh- they made me so angry.

“The DA offered several times to dismiss the charge, but they wanted him to sign a statement basically saying he was guilty of something else. It was all bullshit and our taxpayers’ dollars funded it.”

So it cost Johnathan Montgomery and his family considerable cash, time, and stress – to avoid pleading guilty to something that not only he didn’t do, but no one else did, either, because, basically, it never happened. A Sheriff’s patrol officer violated state police procedure by failing to activate his emergency flashing lights and starting his video dashcam recorder when in pursuit of the driver of a vehicle he suspects of suspicious activity.

By violating that simple, common sense policy, he alarmed the driver he was aiming to stop, the driver fled, and he then arrested him for something he provoked in the first place.

The jurors got it, if the DA didn’t. Case closed.

So mote it be.

Countermand a go in Texas – next session



Charles, Countermand Amendment activist…

Like most people involved in the Patriot movement, Charles remembers the moment, the single most important incident that awakened him, galvanized his actions to make change in his world.

It was the morning in 1973 that the U.S. Supreme Court announced that henceforth, women would be allowed to terminate their pregnancies at will, of their own volition – that it would be a matter settled in private, between she and her doctor. State law protecting the lives of the unborn was thereby nullified by a federal holding.

A street corner preacher from Akron, Ohio, he was instantly plunged into an activist role. To this day, he finds the judge made common law established in Roe v. Wade to be unacceptable. It’s an issue that has polarized American politics to the extent that GOP candidates seeking funding from political action committees are asked to explain their pro-life posture in questionnaires prior to any further discussion. There are no conservative politicians who do not totally oppose pro choice. As to liberal Democrats, there is no question. A woman’s choice is sacrosanct, a matter of principle not to be rescinded. So it goes.

Charles travels and teaches, broadcasts and lobbies for an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would permit State Legislatures to hold a convention under the authority of Article 5 in order to make a single-issue amendment to rescind and countermand federal laws and regulations that interfere with what is known as States Rights. His goal: to form a super majority of states that have ratified the terms of the countermand amendment, in order to create a new way not to just nullify federal law, but to totally rescind laws found objectionable by Legislatures.

This is the single most important issue that led to the Civil War – the War Between the States – or what is known in Dixie as The War of Northern Aggression. If history has a way of repeating itself, only God can help us. The war between an agrarian, southern rural population and an industrialized northern economic coalition was the bloodiest in American history; in many areas of the nation, economic and social recovery is still a matter of struggle – bitter, hateful struggle – between we the people.

Interwoven in an extensive presentation Charles made at the Red, White and Blue Rally in the Florida Panhandle over the weekend is the recurring theme voiced by the people in attendance that County Sheriffs hold the power to force constitutional adherence – if you can get them to do their job. But all the saber rattling by militiamen and local law enforcement will not solve the problem, Charles explains.

There is nothing to keep a federal bureaucracy from coming back the next day to do more of the same. Absolutely nothing.

The rally was held to explore the best ways of resisting an exercise of the Armed Forces Special Operations Command scheduled for July 15 to September 15, in which commandos from all branches of the military will infiltrate, catalogue and database dissident groups perceived as hostile to the principle of homeland security as propagated in the Patriot Act and the National Defense Authorization Act. It is called Jade Helm (Joint Assistant Defense Exercise – Homeland Extraction of Local Militants).  Troopers will play the war game of casting Texas and Utah as hostile states, their populations to be controlled through extraction, internment, interrogation – all the ugly activities of an army of occupation.

Want an example of what that’s like? Read your Holy Bible. If that doesn’t work, watch news clips from Kosovo, Syria, Israel, Lebanon, Iraq, Afghanistan – anywhere the neo-Roman Legions of the UN may present themselves.

Sheriff’s Patrol supervisor’s lies about vehicle pursuit that led to a serious accident

Screen Shot 2015-05-03 at 4.00.32 PM

Story by The Legendary Jim Parks

Reporting by R.S. Gates

Waco – Official records and a video dash camera recording clearly show Sgt. Chris Eubank lied to an Assistant Police Chief when he insisted he was not in pursuit of a vehicle that crashed on a city street in east Waco, causing serious bodily injury to a passenger.

Though the driver of the car is charged with the felony crime of evading arrest, successful prosecution is highly unlikely because Sgt. Eubank made statements within microphone range of a dashboard video camera on a Waco Police cruiser, and later wrote a memo claiming he was never close enough to “light him up” during a chase that reached speeds in excess of 80 miles per hour.

Waco officers called to the scene of the wreck in which a car struck a curb on Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd, clipped a light pole and fipped “at least once,” were not fooled. One of them is heard to say on the dash cam audio, “They said earlier they were going to come over here and stir up some shit.”

To “light him up,” Eubank would have had to activate his emergency lighting system, thus causing the video recording equipment on his cruiser to capture the image of the suspect vehicle as the driver desperately tried to outrun a number of Sheriff’s Office patrol officers in the area of Dunbar St. at Dallas, located in an area of East Waco that is notorious for crack cocaine and other drug dealing, drug houses, and prostitution.

Sheriff’s Office Records Supervisor Tamma Willis has declined to furnish a copy of the video made by Sheriff’s Officers’ cars, saying that to do so would interfere with an investigation of a crime – a felony crime the officer himself alleges he has no real evidence to prove, since he was not close enough to actually see what exactly took place.

According to a law enforcement insider with years of experience in police related internal investigations who requested his name be kept in confidentiality, “The dash audio and video indicate he WAS chasing. He actually was recorded saying he’s got one running. He activated red lights. He traveled city streets a speeds in excess of 80 miles per hour. (Corporal Joseph) Ballew is videoed jumping out at the crash scene with his weapon pointed. THAT’S A CHASE!”

A civilian shown on trial to have told an investigating officer such a falsehood would be found guilty of the criminal offense of making a false report to a law enforcement agency.

It is unclear what action, if any, will be taken in the case of Sgt. Eubank. The situation has created some considerable controversy between the two departments. The Waco police officer who investigated the single car accident said he has reached an agreement with the ranking officer in charge of the matter at the Sheriff’s Office that if charges are to be filed, they will be filed by the Sheriff’s Office and his investigation will stand as an official record of how the accident occurred. Calculations made by he and his associates show the pursuing vehicles to have reached speeds far in excess of 80 miles per hour, including one burst of speed by Corporal Ballews car of 86 miles per hour while Sgt. Eubanks drove at the rate of 79 miles per hour at one point.

Remarks of both Waco police officers and Sergeant Eubank  at the scene of the accident may be heard by following this link:

Florida Baptists to close childrens’ homes over same-sex adoption

Pastor Eaton

Pastor Eddie Eaton, West Pittman Baptist Church, delivering a benediction at a religious rally devoted to resistance to Jade Helm 

Westville, FL – Faced with the prospect of being forced to allow an adoption of a child by a same-sex couple, Florida Baptists have elected to close all six campuses of the Florida Baptist Children’s Home in June.

Pastor Eddie Eaton of the West Pittman Baptist Church in Westville, Florida, said since the Legislature failed to act to nullify a Supreme Court holding ruling a state same-sex marriage ban unconstitutional, the children’s home will inevitably be sued as a matter of course by a same-sex couple seeking permission to adopt a child.

The Baptist churches of Florida have elected to forego the risk by closing their children’s homes.

“During the time that (same sex marriage) was the law,” he told a throng of Christian faithful at a meeting, “not one County Clerk stood up and said, ‘I can’t do that. It’s against my Christian faith.'”

The people of his denomination have no political reason not to oppose the court ruling, he explained.

“Who would care if they lost their church’s tax exemption over political speech?” he asked. “That’s no threat.” Asked to choose between the word of God and the wrath of federal authorities, he said, he would gladly choose the word of God and pay taxes as to keep his mouth shut to save a tax exemption.

“I’d like to be able to preach what I want to preach,” he concluded. All such threats are a paper tiger, according to Pastor Eaton.

“Not one church has ever lost its tax exempt status,” he said. “It has never happened in the history of the United States of America.”

He recalled how a certain State Senator Gates influenced fellow Senators at Tallahassee to not approve a House of Representatives resolution to reintroduce the same-sex marriage ban as a constitutional amendment. “We had a two-thirds majority – it was veto proof,” – he recalled. And then Sen. Gates began to make the rounds of the desks of Committee Chairmen in the Senate chamber. The deal was off. “Not one Republican voted to keep same-sex marriage illegal in Florida,” he declared.

He told the faithful that Gates is prepared to forego the vote of the Panhandle area of the state, confident he can capture the nomination and be elected U.S. Senator on the strength of his popularity with voters to the south of the heavily Baptist, very conservative area.

He urged his listeners to oppose Gates’ son in running for election to the senior Gates’ seat in the State Senate in order to clear the way for his primary run for U.S. Senator

People of the book fight back in red, white, and blue confab out back


Somewhere in the Florida Panhandle – The “people of the book,” Jews and Christians who are targeted by radical Islamic extremists, are fighting back. Life has been lost. Warrior generals of the armed forces act as high ranking officials of the State and Defense Departments; they are attacking their people. They all agree.

It’s a cultural thing, and the speakers at the weekend Red, White and Blue conference in this rural golf and retirement village all agree.

“It’s almost too late.” Each speaker in turn says the same thing. Almost, but not quite too late, but first, Obama and his Pentagon and State Department appointees have to go – or else, we the people stand to lose it all – country, heritage, family, life its own self.


Susan Price, a Gold Star mother who lost her Gunny Sergeant Marine son to a suspected ambush arranged in collusion with hostile forces of the Taliban in Afghanistan, goes so far as to the N-word in describing a high-ranking military couple who now ride herd on national security issues.

She calls Jane Holl Lute, Deputy Secretary of Homeland Security, a former United Nations Secretary General for Mission Support in the Department of Peace, a Nazi. She is a former U.S. Army officer who worked for NSA in Berlin and other cold war hot spots.


Her husband, retired Lt. General Douglas Lute, the “War Czar,” is now a Deputy National Security advisor who has commanded units from Europe to Ft. Hood and all the way back to the mideast. He is a major player in the U.S. Central Command, an instrument of Obama’s White House policy.

She predicts that Operation Jade Helm 15, a special ops exercise slated for summer, but something she and her associates all insist is underway now, will result in internet black-outs, phone service interruptions – communications chaos. All agree. There are shouted replies of support from the small crowd gathered in the community center of a former volunteer fire department station.


A sample of Mrs. Lute’s rhetoric, in description of her career as an Army Officer, Political Scientist, security strategist, in her opening remarks at her Congressional confirmation hearing:

“I have experienced the challenges of managing multi-billion dollar budgets, and supporting operations in some of the most austere, remote, and difficult environments in the world. I have spent a great deal of time working in, on, and around international borders, conflicted borders, disputed borders, and borders where a balance has to be struck between maintaining safety and security while permitting and even encouraging legitimate trade and travel…”


Peter Berg, who has sued President Obama continually since the day his inauguration over the issue of whether he is a natural born citizen, makes it short and sweet.

“If he is, then why doesn’t he permit an inspection of his birth record – or whatever it is – at the office wherever it is, in Hawaii?” There is laughter.

“Because he’s not.”

A tale of two reports – cops, deputies have differing stories

Sgt. Eubank

Waco – As a night patrol supervisor, Deputy Sgt. Chris Eubank works the back streets of east Waco, Bellmead, Lacy-Lakeview, all cities whose minority neighborhoods are teeming with drug houses, addicts, prostitutes, and other people in pursuit of their next high.

He drives a beat-up SUV with more than 250,000 miles on it, a cop car with no “light bar,” or wig wag lights to let the driver of a suspect vehicle he is in pursuit. He put that in the words of a memo he wrote to Assistant Chief Ryan E. Holt, chief of the Waco Police Department’s Patrol Division.

In his memo, he denies he was never in active pursuit of a vehicle that wrecked at the corner of Mill Street and Martin Luther King, Jr., Boulevard after hitting a curb, clipping a light pole and flipping.

He also wanted to let the Chief know he wanted to “express my apologies for the confusion in reference to the incident that occurred on March 21, 2015 on Martin Luther King, Jr., Boulevard…”

The reports he and his men filed are in diametric opposition to those filed by accident investigators from the police department, in whose jurisdiction a high speed chase ended in a serious single car accident that ejected both occupants of the suspect vehicle and resulted in a serious head injury for the passenger.

When he saw his quarry driving away from a warren of cul de sacs and terraces in an east Waco neighborhood, the driver “was already driving at a high rate of speed and all over the road,” he wrote. “At no time was I within two football field lengths of this vehicle,” he said.

Assistant Chief Holt wrote back in reply, “I have no doubt that our agencies will continue the strong working relationship that is necessary to provide peace for our citizens…”

His officers wrote strong opinions to the contrary. They don’t seem to have any doubts, either.

Officer John Clark got copies of the videos made by dash cameras in the vehicles driven by Eubank and Corporal Joseph Ballew. He said the data indicated that Eubank’s top speed was 79 miles per hour; Ballew’s SUV reached a peak speed of 86 miles per hour.

Based off the video evidence I do believe that McLennan County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Eubank was in pursuit of the Nissan. This is based off the fact that Sgt. Eubank at the first of his video indicates that he has a vehicle trying to get away from him.” He noted that he could tell from watching the video that both he and Ballew were within a couple of blocks of the car they were chasing.

He concluded, “After discussing this case with him (his supervisor) due to an agreement between the Sheriff Office and Waco PD it was decided that we would assist with the reconstruction of the collision and the cse would be turned over to the Sheriff Office for any determination of any criminal charges. I spoke with Capt. (Steve) Smith and he was in agreement of this.”

His words speak for themselves. You folks charge him, and I will serve as your complaining expert witness.

Calculations made by an accident investigator show the Nissan driven by Artee Harris was traveling 52 miles per hour after it jumped a curb, plowed through some small trees planted in the median, struck a light pole, and then flipped “at least once.” Harris is charged with the third degree felony of evading arrest, a charge in which it must be proven that he has a prior conviction for the same charge and his actions resulted in serious bodily harm to another person. Neither of those allegations are enumerated in an affidavit of probable cause sworn to by a detective and acknowledged by Justice of the Peace Diane Hensley.

Sheriff Parnell McNamara responded to a request for racial profiling statistics required by the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure.

They show these results, based on the number of citations issued in traffic stops. There is no information about uncleared crime, crimes cleared by arrest and the resulting crime clearance rate, tabulated by racial and ethnic classification.

A Mother’s love: To fight for all God’s children

Operation Dancing Goat 2: Tea drinking with Taliban elders

“Mind you the Russians were there from 1979 till 1989. (Afghanistan) It was the Russian Mothers that ended that war and it is the love of a MOTHER to fight for all of God’s children.” – Susan Price

 Somewhere on the road in Northern Florida – Nothing is quite so violent – so personally affecting – as to see the door to one’s home broken and splintered where a crowbar destroyed the practicality of the carpenter’s art. It is an act of violation of the privacy of one’s domain – a slap in the face of decency, unsettling, disquieting.

By the time Labor Day weekend 2009 rolled around, Susan Price was used to the kind of violent, sinister “funny things” that kept happening to her. Strangers in an SUV snapped pictures of her home near Atlanta; when she responded to their invasion of her privacy, came outside into her driveway, they sped away. It was a matter of routine during the years before she moved to Florida, years in which investigators were checking out her son’s background for a top secret security clearance that would enable him to handle a job as an aide to a top Defense Department assistant secretary.

A bullet shattered the calm of the day of her 50th birthday, September 29, 2008, a year before his son’s death in combat, as she drove to work on a business trip to Clearwater, Florida, as a marketing specialist. A drive-by shooter sprayed lead at her moving car.

None of that is a mystery to her. She has evidence of why it all happened, and she and other civilians including veterans of wars fought as Marines and soldiers, sailors and airmen, intend to use that evidence to combat what they see as a military bid to carry out a coup d’etat against the civil government inside the borders of the U.S.

They are the resistance to Operation Jade Helm 15, a special ops exercise they see as all part of an ongoing plan to deliver the land mass of the nation into the hands of foreign troops under the direction of the United Nations.

It was all part of a pattern she had learned to live with during the years of her son’s career as a U.S. Marine. Gunnery Sgt. Aaron Kenefick’s elevation to a top secret, compartmentalized clearance came with strings attached. One of them involved suspicious, hostile and violent behavior toward his mother.

“Someone broke into my home as they used a crowbar to break entry from my garage into the house the night before my son was killed that Labor Day weekend,” on September 8, 2009, she recalls.

She is carrying the message that she knows exactly what the burglars who broke into her home were looking for – and why.

Gunny Kenefick left his duty station across Tampa Bay at MacDill Air Force Base, home of CentCom, the command structure that directs all operations in the mideast for the U.S. Armed Forces, in a flurry of angry confrontations with his boss, retired Brigadier General Mark Kimmitt; the Marine Corps reassigned him in August, 2007, to a Marine battalion at Okinawa after they repeatedly clashed over the general’s “unethical” behavior.

The nature of that behavior became a storm of controversy after numerous persons with whom the general worked at CentCom came forward to give sworn statement and write letters to the Inspector General of the Department of Defense about how he treated both them and sensitive official documents during his tenure there as an Assistant Secretary of Defense in charge of the conduct of the war in Afghanistan.

In the days previous to the ambush that took the Gunny’s life and those of several other Marines during “Operation Dancing Goat 2,” Kimmitt had been involved in the minutiae of a lateral move that would take him to another area of foreign policy, as a Deputy Director of the Department of State for military and political affairs.

It was a time of sweeping change in the executive department of the government, a changing of the guard from a Republican President from the neoconservative wing of the GOP to an ultra-liberal south side Chicago member of the Democratic Party, a man of color with a mixed heritage of a black, Islamic father from Kenya, and a white Christian mother from Kansas – a couple who met while on duty with the Peace Corps. The new President had strong ties to such organizations as Saul Alinsky’s Industrial Areas Foundation, and a personal relationship with Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn, a couple who once graced the FBI’s most wanted posters as founding members of the Weather Underground faction of the Students for a Democratic Society.

In nearly 60 pages of heavily redacted official documents forwarded by the IG’s office to Senator Joe Biden, then chair of the Senate Foreign Relations committee, enough comes through to make it clear the investigation was pretty much of a white wash, riddled with softball questions about why the general couldn’t get along with colleagues, co-workers, the people who reported to him at MacDill.

They all politely replied it was all about his forceful, direct and challenging personality – personal traits that often left people unnerved. On a scale of one to ten, he was in the garlic sandwich department – strong.

The names of every person who testified and wrote letters of complaint seeking to block his confirmation as a State Department big-wig is blocked out by a bar of official black. Sometimes whole pages are darkened, as well as the predicate portions of complex sentences denoting the exact nature of their complaints and allegations.

Marine buddies and his mother Susan Price all agree that it was his statements and letters to the office of the Inspector General about Kimmitt that got Gunny Kenefick killed a couple of years later in Afghanistan.

“It is upon information and belief as a couple of my son’s Marine friends from U.S. Central Command – CentCom – mentioned a letter that was sent to the IG from my son…Upon my investigations a few years ago, I found this letter and believe that it is from my son Aaron, as it was sent in 2007, which would have fit perfect as my son left U.S. CentCom August 2, 2007, and reported to 3rd Marine Battalion.”

His allegations, according to her sources and her understanding of her son’s situation, included three areas of unprofessional behavior:

1) Kimmitt demanded that Gunny Kenefick as his enlisted aide leave the secure area of the CentCom headquarters and bring sensitive documents – secret message traffic and cables, reports, and the like – to his private residence after they had been downloaded to his personal computer at his off-post private residence. He demanded the deliveries of official documents to be made off-post at 3 a.m. each day. He was a witness to other similar situations and said so in official complaints and sworn statements.

2) He was a witness to other similar situations involving security breaches, and said so in official complaints and sworn statements.

3) He had personal experience with the general’s impatient affect, his violent ways of talking to people who had to listen to his tirades. He had given statements and written complaints about specific incidents.

In the final hours of his life, Gunny Kenefick and three other Marines  of his team were ambushed on a mission to plant NSA apparatus in the Ginjgal Valley area where they were eventually killed. When the ambush didn’t succeed, “Camp Joyce HQ called them and told the four Marines to report hours later as they were going into the village of Ganjgal for a tea drinking mission, aka the mission ‘Dancing Goat 2.'”

During the

As they approached the area in company with a company strength reconnaissance in force, they met withering automatic fire and rocket propelled grenades directed at them by a large number of Taliban fighters who were dug in throughout the village and its strategic overlooks. They were pinned, cut off, in need of air support they were promised in 15 minutes, though the choppers didn’t come for an additional 80 minutes, long after they were all dead. .

“The State Department was there the day before…They were set up,” says Susan Price. mother of a Marine who lost his life fighting in a war most people do not understand.

NEXT INSTALLMENT: The Kimmitt family of professional warriors and their interlocking directorate with military, industrial, financial, public relations, lobbying, and political organizations. Who they are, and why they’re here to stay…

Critical thinking applied to “D” shift shows sloppy warrants, paperwork

D Shift arrest stats

 McLennan Sheriff’s Office “D” Shift Patrol Supervisor, Sgt. Chris Eubank, points to inflated arrest statistics for his deep nights unit

“I’ll tell you what they don’t want. They don’t want a population capable of critical thinking. That’s what they don’t want…” – George Carlin

Waco – In a sad commentary to what is considered success in police work, Sheriff Parnell McNamara continues to brag on the fantastic job the deep night “D” Shift is doing on the streets of east Waco, Bellmead, Lacy-Lakeview, and other municipal jurisdictions on the east bank of the Brazos – in the places where poor people of color live.

The truth is, the story is there to give comfort to an oligarchy capable of furious vengeance on people whose only real crime is the color of their skin, and the fashionability of their address.

City law enforcement agencies tolerate giving up the collars made on their citizens because, all things being equal, their policy is to not go to such an effort to convict people on investigations based on thin or non-existent probable cause.

Consider the third degree felony case for evading arrest against Artee Harris made by Sgt. Chris Eubank, patrol supervisor of the Sheriff’s Office Shift D.

By the time Eubank was through, he had involved two other deputies, a detective, and a Justice of the Peace in what was, at best, a case of racial profiling, a high-speed pursuit through city streets, and what is purported to be a horrendous single vehicle motor vehicle accident in which a passenger sustained serious bodily harm.

Oddly enough, when Detective Joseph M. Scaramucci made his complaint to Justice Court Judge Diane Hensley, he omitted the two elements that would qualify the offense as a third degree felony – a previous conviction for evading arrest and causing serious bodily harm to another person as a negligent result of the evasion.

Nevertheless, the judge signed off on the affidavit of probable cause on the basis of Eubank’s statement that he “observed a vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed in the area of Dunbar St.” The location is east Waco, not far from “the cut,” an area notorious for a high incidence of prostitution, sales of crack cocaine, and the kind of late night prowling that leads to gang violence.

What exactly Artee Harris did to attract Eubank’s attention other than pilot his car through the area at an allegedly excessive speed is an unknown quantity, reading from Scaramucci’s affidavit.

The narrative continues, saying that Cpl. Ballew “got between” Eubank and Harris’ vehicle, after Eubank “trailed the vehicle on Dallas St. to Carver, at which point he initiated his emergency lights.”

The car load of dudes continued “at a high rate of speed” to MLK (Martin Luther King Boulevard) and Mill St., the location of the old waterworks restaurant, where “The vehicle then crashed and flipped.” Fortunately, the deputies were able to “detain” the occupants while they waited for the Waco PD accident investigator to do the honors.

That investigation is still pending, according to a police custodian of records, because “It’s going through legal review…It won’t be available today.”

When Deputy Losak asked why they were going so fast, DeShawn McCants replied, “I told him to slow down, I told him to stop.” Uh huh.

Scaramucci had to contact McCants by phone in order to find out that Harris was “running” from the Sheriff’s Office.

And then Judge Hensley signed off that she found probable cause for a felony warrant on a document “SWORN TO AND SUBSCRIBED before me, this the 14 day of 2015, A.D., 2015.

Well, blow me down. Great day in the morning. No doubt her attention was distracted by the prospect of being attacked by spiders in her shabby office for which she is lobbying a complete redecoration and beautification of floors, window treatments, and lighting fixtures.

It seems court officials throughout greater Metropolitan McLennan County, Texas, are careless about the dates ascribed to certain offenses or official notations thereunto appertaining to such offenses. Recently, a County Court-at-Law judge had no choice but to dismiss a case of DWI against a couple who work for Judge Ken Starr, former Solicitor General of the United States of America, U.S. District Judge, Whitewater Special Prosecutor, and President of Baylor University.

At any rate, though the McLennan County Sheriff’s Office Policy Manual remains an instrument sacrosanct from public scrutiny because the Attorney General’s Office has upheld the notion that any such regard would reveal methods, tactics and strategies employed to detect and investigate crime, veteran lawmen in the area all agree that high speed pursuit of suspect vehicles based on their location only is not just thin probable, but non-existent probable cause. In fact, it’s become such a hot button issue the FBI requires routine tabulations on all such arrests, complete with ethnic and racial details on arrestees.

That’s why the city kitties allow folks like Eubank to take all those high-tone collars of high-tone folks on the other side of the Brazos from where the quality stays.

It’s a screwy case, a bad affidavit, and since it’s still under investigation, according to Records Supervisor Tamma Willis of the Sheriff’s Office, it should be shielded from the public.

We of The Legendary have, out of curiosity, made a humble request for the records on racial profiling kept for the FBI iover the past year to determine if people are apprehended for such offenses as “driving while black.”

We eagerly await her reply, because she is Legendary for her repeated and constant appeals to the Open Records Division of the Attorney General’s Office for opinions upon matters which the attorneys there have not changed their minds an iota, a skosh, or a silly millimeter.

Google that name. You’ll see for yourself.

In memorandizing form fit and fiddle as faddle may be, Eubank continues to insist his “high speed pursuit” was no pursuit at all. It was, ah, well, you’ll have to take my word, I guess. Words fail.

“Funny things” started to happen to Gunny Aaron Kenefick’s Mom Susan Price after he got his Top Secret Clearance – SCI Compartmentalized – and then his own government ambushed him…

“When things happen in my life, they all happen at the same time…” Susan Price

Apollo Beach, Fl – After the Gunny began to serve as Brig. Gen. Mark Kimmitt’s enlisted aide at CentCom, he worked until 8 p..m. nightly, but his work day really began at 3 a.m., when he was compelled to deliver documents and message traffic to the General at his home.

Gunnery Sergeant Aaron Kenefick didn’t like the set-up. He got in the General’s face and told him – more than once – that his actions were “unethical,” that he would gladly do his duty at the super-secret MacDill Air Force Base of operations for the global war on terror located in Tampa Bay, but his pre-dawn trips to Kimmitt’s house were a thing of the past.

Gunny Kenefick, USMC

That’s when he got orders to go to the remote Taliban hot-spot in the treacherous Ganjgal Valley on Afghanistan’s eastern border. With his experience maintaining and updating the CentCom database on the radical Islamic warrior sect, his skill set was needed in a crucial evolution of the fight for hearts and minds in September, 2009.

The mission: Force Recon to the villages of the stronghold, and then a tea-drinking ceremony with the elders in which they were expected to denounce the Taliban.

Events did not work out that way. When the group of about 50 Marines arrived at their objective on September 8, 2009, they encountered withering automatic and rocket-propelled grenade fire from an ambush wall to wall and tree-top tall. They were pinned down, helpless.

An Army helicopter unit had gunships within a 15-minute flight, and promised to send air support and artillery cover. As the wait stretched from 15 minutes to 80 minutes, a young enlisted man named Dakota Meyer fought back valiantly to try to help the Gunny and his Commanding Officer guide their Marines to safety. In the face of overwhelming odds, he mounted repeated attacks. His actions earned he and another Marine the Congressional Medal of Honor.

But the heroic actions of Dakota Meyer didn’t save the life of Gunny Kenefick, Susan Price’s son. He perished, along with a number of other warriors in what she and many other knowledgeable people believe was a set-up – a murder conspiracy against a Marine who “knew too much.” The Army believed it at the time. Two top officers at the command headquarters who stalled in sending help their way were immediately relieved of duty, their careers finished following an investigation by top brass.

Brig. Gen. Mark Kimmitt, former CentCom Deputy Director for Strategy and Plans

Ms. Price calmly levels her charge against Brigadier General Mark Kimmitt, her son’s former boss at CentCom. Abundant evidence exists to show that he and his cronies are the architects of Jade Helm 15 (Joint Assistant Deployment and Execution – Homeland Eradication of Local Militants), professional colleagues in a “revolving door” of military leaders who leave the service for top jobs at civilian defense contracting corporations, public relations firms who spin doctor events in brush fire wars and appear on network newscasts to “explain” events, and “analyze” developments.

Gen. Kimmitt served as Assistant Secretary of State for Political – Military Affairs during the administration of President George W. Bush.

Kimmitt appeared on newscasts to analyze a couple of seminal events in the Iraq War – the helicopter hit on civilian journalists on a Baghdad street – an event publicized by Wikileaks, and the scandalous treatment of prisoners at Abu Ghraib Prison, a story broken by Seymour Hersh in “The New Yorker,” the “New York Times” journalist who first broke the story of the My Lai massacre in Vietnam. Kimmitt assured the BBC that the people of Iraq would “forgive” the abuses perpetrated at Abu Ghraib.

In both cases, Kimmitt “explained” what really happened and why coalition forces were not really at fault. He’s in good company, his father, a retired Army officer, worked for one of Washington’s top PR firms doing exactly the same work. He has brothers who work as bankers and CIA hands following their retirement from the military.

Susan Price says she believes they are from the bloodline of the Rothschild family. She and her comrades in arms also believe that Kimmitt and a Lt. Col. named John Brennan are the true architects of Jade Helm, that it’s an evolution of a ‘New World Order” they outlined in a abstract written at the Air Force’s War College following the Gulf War.

One may listen to an interview of Susan Price by clicking here:

In that document, the Colonel quoted Zbignew Brzezinski’s belief that “New World Order” is a great slogan, but it’s hardly a strategy. In “fleshing out” their strategy, they call for the U.S. to stop being the “world’s policeman,” and become “the world’s conscience.” The strategy, described in the position paper, is to operate as part of a coalition of forces, rather than a unilateral superpower, in which “we must invest in both the financial validity of the U.N. and the countries of the former Soviet Union.” 

The central idea, they emphasized, is to follow “a program of active political and economic measures and responsible military reductions,” in order to “…ensure retention of our superpower status. To do otherwise will earmark us in history as only another fallen empire.” 

Susan Price says her solution, now that Jade Helm 15 is going fully operational throughout the southern tier of states of the Continental U.S., is to bug out from her home across the bay from MacDill and CentCom where she has lived for the past 10 years following the “funny things” that began to happen after Gunny Kenefick received this top secret, compartmentalized clearance.

First, she will meet up with a group of Marines and activist patriots who have risen to help defend themselves and their loved ones at a “red, white, and blue” rally somewhere in the Florida panhandle. Fellow bug-outs will arrive on time; many will leave in different directions than those in which they came, their destinations yet to be determined. It’s on. Realistic Military Training is going live in the streets and highways of California, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, Colorado, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi – all the way to Florida.

It’s not Blackhawk down, it’s Blackhawk downtown in what is being sold to local governments as “realistic military training” designed to prepare special operations troopers, Marines and SEALS for overseas deployments.

So it goes.

So mote it be.

Beleaguered mayor in face-down with Sheriff

Donny Brock, Mayor of Quinlan, TX

Hunt County, Texas – Watching this small-town Mayor work the phone is a study in what armed camps look like during an all-out information war at election time.

Mayor Donny Brock leans into the phone receiver, emphasizes his words, “Now, my (police) department, here, the Sheriff is telling them, ‘We don’t like what you’re doing.'”

He lets that sink in, and there’s silence on the line as a former Hunt County Deputy who quit Sheriff Randy Meeks because he said he could no longer work in the atmosphere of the office maintained by his former boss, waits for his next remark.

“I have no idea what happened,” he concludes. “I’m being stalled on the paperwork I need.”

So far, Sheriff Meeks has made a single-handed stand to keep Brock from learning what, exactly, took place as two of his deputies arrested a woman who was 38 weeks and six days pregnant after beating her kidneys with a closed fist.

A video caught on a surveillance camera inside Deanna Jo Robinson’s parents’ home shows in graphic detail what happened after she demanded to see a writ that authorized them seizer her 18-month-old boy in a case of alleged abuse and/or neglect.

A patrolman from the Quinlan Police Department, Cpl. Daniel Catalan, stood by while the arrest and beating took place and later charged her with the Class A misdemeanor of resisting arrest and the Class B misdemeanor of interfering with the duties of a public official.

“I need the narrative he filed, what he had to say about what happened,” said Brock. “The Chief doesn’t have a clue. He didn’t even know it had happened until the video came out.”

So far, the video has had 1.5 million viewers in 221 countries; it’s the subject of an FBI investigation.

Hunt County officials are stonewalling. They’ve got problems. There was no writ to show the woman when she asked to read it. When she fought to keep her child, and tried to close the door, they chased her into her mother’s kitchen, where the beating took place.

“If I find out he did noting, it’s going to break my heart if I have to fire him.”

The lawman he has on the line breaks in, says, “Well, a guy that young, you can chalk it up to a lack of training. The Chief, well, that’s – I don’t know what you would call it. He should know.” The Chief of the Quinlan department said all the documentation of the arrest of Ms. Robinson and the seizure of her child is embargoed pending a Texas Rangers investigation, and a private attorney’s quest for an Attorney General’s Opinion. It is his opinion that since the mother, who fought like a tigress at 175 pregnant pounds stacked on a 5’3″ frame, is a “patient.” Of whom? Who knows? HIPPA law protects her medical information. The lawyer, Daniel Ray, who is retained by the Hunt County Commmissioners’ Court, says that protection extends to her arrest and the seizure of her child. She is a veteran of the Iraq War with a tour in the combat zone under her belt.

Brock says in an exasperated tone of voice, “He (Sheriff Meeks) came by here yesterday morning and said, ‘You and me are all right, aren’t we, Donny?’

“I told him, no, we’re not. We have a problem.” He said the attorney has it all balled up, but that ain’t right. We should be able to get the basic information about the arrest – especially from our own department.”

The City Council demurred taking any action a week ago, pending their reception of the crime report. So far, since March 3, none is forthcoming.

City Councilman Jackie Goleman, Mayoral candidate

To complicate matters, Brock is facing a re-election contest a week hence, on May 9. His opponent is a long-term member of the City Council, a retired school teacher named Jackie Goleman, who finds himself in opposition to many of Brock’s initiatives – and there have been many in his tenure. He and another two members of the council seem to think Brock is moving too fast. Brock is a founding member of the local TEA Party and a voracious Watch Dog over city hall. He has eliminated some wasteful spending, made some personnel adjustments, and looks forward to making some more.

Police arrested Goleman’s 38-year-old son Jacky on Thursday, April 23. There are no details available for that arrest, either, but the young man is no stranger to the police blotter.

He faces pending charges of assault, family violence, possession of a controlled substance, theft of service, and unlawful carrying a weapon. His latest arrest is for felony theft over $1,500 and less than $20,000.

And then, there is the video that shows the brutal beating of a handcuffed and belly-chained county jail inmate on a sidewalk outside the courthouse in November, 2014, after a man dressed in managerial style with a tie and a neatly pressed shirt and slacks tried to engage him in conversation.

A video surveillance camera clearly shows a security deputy in the lobby of the building admonishing the man not to talk to the inmate as he and others similarly restrained stood with their noses pressed to the wall. When his interlocutor persists, he is escorted out of the building.

After the deputies cleared the lobby and secured the elevator to upper floors, they hustled Philip Allen Jones out a side door and onto the sidewalk, where they threw him down so hard, he came out of his shoes. After an extended beating, he is put into a paddy wagon. During the beating, a deputy is seen leading the same man away who had tried to talk to the inmate inside the lobby.

Jones was arrested on charges of armed robbery and drug possession. A local newspaper has been unable to get much in the way of facts about his case, or the beating. Sheriff Meeks says an internal investigation is underway.
