"Dallas County District Attorney John Creuzot defended his recent decision to stop prosecuting certain quality-of-life crimes over the objections of members of the Dallas City Council's Public Safety and Criminal Justice Committee on Monday. The reforms, Creuzot said, are meant to make Dallas a safer, more equitable city, not to enable those who commit low-level offenses, as critics of the new policies have accused Creuzot of doing".
The best way to lower crime? Do like California does and don't enforce laws.
Criminal Justice Reform? That's only a problem for people who don't believe there's an horrific injustice (for centuries) in the American (especially Texas)...like YOU.
But some semblance of equal Justice is coming, finally...starting with the asswipes who killed James Byrd Jr by tying him to their pickup and dragging him a few miles until his body was rtipped apart and strewn all over the place.https://meaww.com/death-row-inmate-bizarre-last-meal-request-resulted-tradition-banned-dragging-death-james-byrd-jrA white supremacist, John William King, who was executed on April 24 in Texas for the 1998 dragging death of James Byrd Jr., was denied the option of choosing his final meal all thanks to fellow killer who got the tradition banned.
I don't there's more than 3 or 4 cases (if that many of white killers escape death for murdering blacks and Asians & Latinos).
The good ol' Texas are changing FOR THE BETTER.
Future Texas will, rid itself of lame sell out politicians like Cruz and elect more (and real Latinos) to power as they are doing with the Castro Bros.
It will see more equality in the enforcement of Justice for all citizens.
WEED will become legal.
They stop whitewashing History books and return them to covering 'a complete history of America instead of jesus and Dinosaurs BS.
Texas is headed this way ->BLUE.
Then the old Texans will relocate to Idaho & Wyoming...who should be reduced to 1 Senator each in the next decade or so.
Didn't Trump just get some of the best legislation passed for Criminal Justice Reform? I never saw the left do anything comparable. What is their crowning achievement? Legalizing child prostitution and infecting others with HIV is no longer a felony?
Why are leftists so enamored with chemical addictions like weed? Are their lives so pathetic that they cannot see beauty in life that they need to be chemically altered just to survive?
What is wrong with Ted Cruz? He's a real Hispanic, unlike Beto 'Beta' O'Roarke. Real Hispanics (like me), are hard workers, value education, serve in our military, follow laws, and we think for ourselves rather than some collectivist leftist monoculture who have never actually accomplished anything except for masterpieces such as Venezuela, Soviet Russia, and even National Socialism. Cruz is a Constitutionalist. The left has no real principles - it changes depending on what they need to claim to believe at the time to get voters. Remember when Bill Clinton and even the Democrat party talked about the danger of illegal immigration. It's funny how they have gone 180 degrees the other way to get voters in their permanent underclass.
Humans have deep faults. Christians understand this because they pray allegiance and thanks to God, who is perfect and whom we cannot imitate because of our flawed natures. Is this why leftists hate Christians so much? Is it because leftists believe in the supremeness of the human above all else? In the short term, this arrogance always results in winning a few battles. How many left leaning people have won the war? None. Texas may go blue but it will swing back in the same way that the Democrats have had to resort to importing their voter base and selling igloos to Eskimos just to get votes. Leftists will always lose in the end. The only question is, how much harm will they do on the way?
You must be another child here talking about things you know nothing about or an adult who lives on the internet.
1. Weed/Marijuana is a natural plant. If you don't know that..stop now. And learn.
2. People hooked of the killing drugs and opiods (which they will kill to get) are who you should be worry about.
3. If you know any Republican adults (and kids over 12 (in Red States), I guarantee you 7 out of 10 are smoking weed right now) It's more widespread than you can begin to understand.
4. Of the few Republicans I know, all of them except 1 is a weed smoker and the rest are also adderal, ecstasy, and cocaine users.

Yep you're a Ted Cruz hispanic, REAL Hispanics that I know and have partied with, gone to weddings, funerals and traveled back and forth through Mexico with are re hard workers, value education, serve in our military, follow laws and are PROUD of their Latin backgrounds...unlike you. You;re type of 'hispanic (if you really are) that would be found in a corner pissing and crying on yourself if your car broke down in East LA, if that happena I sure hope you're not wearing your 'I love Ted Cruz' t-shirt. You won't make thru the night.
The left has no real principles -
Just like Marijuana your knowledge of Liberals is what your heard from Rush.
Humans have deep faults.
It's in our DNA, we are wired that way and fighting against our very animal instincts.

Christians, Muslims, Jews and the rest believe in man made fallacies. They call it 'FAITH'
in their believes. Faith is a man-made concept, just like Justice...it's real for some and non-existent for billions. Out side of this Earth, there is no such thing. There is no justice, Faith or god for the other septillion (a billion trillion) other inhabitant planets in this universe. Those 'terms' and their meanings belong here on this planet and nowhere else.
For Christianity (and any other religions) to present itself as having a monopoly on Universal Truth is the biggest flaw in humankind. The ultimate act of ARROGANCE!
You (religious believers) ..know nothing.
YOU people stand on the shoulders of those stone age fools who scripted pages of contradicting, conflicting, allegorical nonsense that keep their stories straight.
We stand on the shoulders of the greatest minds that made enormous sacrifices at risk of looking foolish but paved the way for all the modern day conveniences you use today, from a toilet, to your microwave, your car, the computer/internet you are using to read this, jetliners to space probes. Your god had no hand in any of this, he cherishes goats, pigs (sorry pigs, no he doesn't), cows and
chariots and needs you people to constantly praise him.
But were it not for Giordano Bruno, Galileo Galilei, Nicolas Copernicus, Johannes Kepler, Niels Bohr, George LaMaitre, Edwin Hubble, Einstein to Ed Witten and many more...you'd still be wearing sheepskin clothes and sandals while eating gruel and potato soup.
Luckily, those people did stop at some stupid pile of paper that is better used as toilet paper.
Religious text is perfect for people who have no wish, no desire to know anything else about their world nor anything beyond it. It's really great for people who find critical thinking a problem as it hurts their brains to use it.
How many left leaning people have won the war? None.
Well that's poker game level bullsh*t right there.
Which war do you wish try that ignorant ass argument on, please...make my day! No one who claims to have served in the military (like you) would dare say something that asinine.
Texas may go blue but it will swing back in the same way that the Democrats have had to resort to importing their voter base and selling igloos to Eskimos just to get votes. Leftists will always lose in the end. The only question is, how much harm will they do on the way?
You OWE every right that you take the advantage of and clearly do not appreciate to leftist struggles.
Fair Labor Laws (your 8 hour work day)
Laws against Child labor
Laws to assure clean drinking water
Laws for safety at work
Laws against sexual harrassement.
Laws for safety of your vehicles, buses, airplanes and ships.
Laws for safety in the foods you consume.
Consumer Protections against unfair banking practices
A free Public Education
Equal pay and fair pay for labor
...much much more.
But please, feel free to fight against those things as hard as you are trashing them, please tell everyone you know how you hate these things.
How you hate common sense and would much more prefer to submit to Authoritarianism Rule. We hear you loud and clear.
Clear enough to know that warped conservative minds are still fighting against those things and if they had their way all of that would disappear in a heartbeat.
After all, just like this MORALLY 'loaded' post by greendot is illustrious exemplar of the 31% - Super Religious, Super Moralistic, Super Values, Super Honest ALL while publicly embracing the MOST IMMORAL man ever to hold office, the biggest Coward (ran 5 times[illegally] from Military service while trashing the Gold Star families, dead veterans, a man who lies to their very faces (and everyone else's as well) every day - But no, to you..the moral christian, he's your hero and this just what America needs - according to YOU.
