Violent criminals are arrested in Houston everyday. They are charged with Aggravated Robbery, Felon in Possession of a Firearm, Deadly Conduct, Aggravated Assault and many more types of offenses. When they skip their court dates, are they charged with bail jumping? When they get charged with felony after felony (while on bond), what happens? Are they offered sweetheart deals? Probation?
When is enough actually enough, for these Judges and elected officials? Who holds them accountable? You do. Your vote matters.
