Three Stupid State Tricks

 Posted on March 28, 2008 in Uncategorized

Williamson County's John Bradley says, "The government has already decided, as a matter of law, that [marijuana] is not available for such a [medical] purpose. No defense permitted." (H/T Robert Guest, via Grits.) Oops, sorry, John!

DPS Troopers are shopping for Denton, Dallas, and Tarrant County judges to "go to for blood warrants." Not to worry, they already have judges they use in McKinney County.

In Houston, HPD DWI Task Force officer Paul Lassalle wants to make sure HPD doesn't have to actually use the video equipment that state law requires it to have and to maintain. Hmm. Why would the DWI Task Force not want video recordings of people arrested for DWI? Could it be that they're arresting people who look sober and sound sober? Well, no matter. Not using video is okey-dokey with Harris County prosecutor Warren Diepraam. See the emails in the link, and remember this the next time the State complains about how difficult DWI cases are to prove.
