This has been an eventful couple of weeks for me. First, with getting through the District H campaign and then seeing Edward become our Council Member. I'll get back to blogging, now that I have more time.
The city lost Officer Henry Canales, a 16-year veteran of the Houston Police Department, when he was killed in the line of duty this week. I will venture to say that the racists are jumping in and out of their skin right now, with their "shut the borders" outcry and other idiocies that may fly out of their open traps. We're not biting, people. Please STFU and let Officer Canales rest in peace. He did his job honorably and knew the risks involved. He dealt with criminals every day. Crime knows no legal status, because the bad guys come in all shapes, colors & sizes. The reason Officer Canales was so good at his job is because he was Latino, spoke Spanish, and went after the criminals in their own language. We need more officers like Henry Canales.
God bless the Canales family at this incredibly difficult time.
