The Bexar County Conviction Integrity Unit (CIU) cleared the names of three people in San Antonio who were wrongfully convicted with drug possession — one of them posthumously.
On Wednesday, July 22, CIU exonerated 49-year-old John Gabriel Cape, 48-year-old Louie Garcia, and Rexina Linan-Juarez after discovering that a confidential informant planted drugs that led to their 2017 arrest and 2018 convictions.
Matt Howard, director of the conviction integrity unit, said the informant knocked on the door of Cape and Linan-Juarez’s home in August 2017, begging to let him and his daughter use the bathroom. Howard said that the couple let the man into their home because they were “trying to do the right thing.”
The informant left after being in the home for about 10 minutes. A couple of hours later, officers showed up with a search warrant after being tipped off. While searching the restroom, police found drugs and other contraband tucked behind a wall, Howard sai.
Because Garcia was also in the home at the time, the Bexar County Sheriff charged the trio with possession of a controlled substance between 4-200 grams, a second-degree felony
Cape, Garcia, and Linan-Juarez spent their time in the Bexar County jail as they awaited their court dates and eventual plea deals, and during that time all three maintained their innocence and told their attorneys they believed the drugs were planted.
Linan-Juarez’s health declined while in jail due to multiple illnesses that Howard did not disclose.
“She was desperate to get out,” Howard said during a Wednesday press conference. “And her family thought that she was not not long for hospice care, to be honest with you.”
Cape’s attorney used this to leverage a plea deal for 10 years in prison, saying that Linan-Juarez would be released to be with her family in hospice care. Despite saying that he believed the drugs were planted, Cape admitted guilt.
Garcia was told that everyone admitted guilt, so he took a plea deal for eight years in prison. Linan-Juarez took a plea deal as well and was released on deferred adjudication.
‘conservatives are scrambling to unring the bell and reject critical examinations of US history,’
YA MEAN LIKE LINCOLN WAS A CLOSET QUEER ATHIST WHO HAD HIS TERRORIST USA “soldiers” GANG RAPE LITTLE CHILDREN & MOTHERS TO DEATH, GANG RAPE MINISTERS DAUGHTERS, BURN GRANDPA & GRANDMA TO DEATH IN THEIR HOMES? THAT KIND OF “US history”?
P.S. I WOULD LIKE MY GREAT GREAT GRANDMOTHER’S SILVERWARE BACK WHEN THE PENTAGON CAN GET AROUND TO IT
About 1977-78 I lived for a bit in Pasadena, Texas where it was estimated at least 3/4s of the police force was KKK.
There was a KKK bookstore on Red Bluff Road with a sign which stated it was open to the white public.
Being a Texas Hill Country boy I had never seen such stuff.
One day when my chemical plant construction job got rained out, and not feeling like going to the bar with the crew and drinking the day away, I decided to see what was inside that place.
There was no one in there but one woman minding the store.
I looked around at all their hate literature on African Americans and in all seriousness looked at her and said, this is a joke right?
To this day I consider myself lucky to have gotten out alive!
White trash have to have someone to blame for being white trash, and to them the easiest mark was black folks.
If there are any KKK left around today they are probably on the FBIs payroll.
They were few and far between even back then.
I personally don’t believe in belonging to any organization which hides their identities.
I don’t like hypocrites either, and unless the one wrote this piece is so stupid walking and chewing gum at the same time is a major challenge, his ole lady has this side up tattooed on her belly so he will hit the right orifice, he is major hypocrite because it is impossible to try to write a piece making someone or another organization more terroristic and vile then the USA Army during the late illegal war of rape, robbery, arson, and mass murder than the USA Army.
“General in Chief of the Confederate Army
General Robert E. Lee’s Order No. 73
Regarding Christian Conduct of Confederate Troops toward Northern Civilians and their Property
General Order No. 73
HEADQUARTERS ARMY OF NORTHERN VIRGINIA, CHAMBERSBURG PA., June 27, 1863
The commanding general has observed with marked satisfaction the conduct of the troops on the march, and confidently anticipates results commensurate with the high spirit they have manifested. No troops could have displayed greater fortitude or better performed the arduous marches of the past ten days. Their conduct in other respects has, with a few exceptions, been in keeping with their character as soldiers, and entitles them to approbation and praise. There have been however, instances of forgetfulness on the part of some that they have in keeping the yet unsullied reputation of the army, and that the duties exacted of us by civilization and Christianity are not less obligatory in the country of the enemy than in our own. The commanding general considers that no greater disgrace could befall the army, and through it our whole people, than the perpetration of the barbarous outrages upon the innocent and defenseless and wanton destruction of private property that have marked the course of the enemy in our country. Such proceedings not only disgrace the perpetrators and all connected with them, but are subversive of the discipline and efficiency of the army and destructive of the ends of our present movements. It must be remembered that we make war only on armed men, and that we cannot take vengeance for the wrongs our people have suffered without lowering ourselves in the eyes of all whose abhorrence has been excited by the atrocities of our enemy, and offending against Him to whose vengeance belongeth, without whose favor and support our efforts must all prove in vain. The commanding general therefore earnestly exhorts the troops to abstain, with most scrupulous care, from unnecessary or wanton injury to private property, and he enjoins upon officers to arrest and bring to summary punishment all who shall in any way offend against the orders on this subject.

“Occupation of the Republic of Texas yankee’s Carpetbagger “government” THE STATE OF TEXAS’ Senate Advances Anti-Critical Race Theory Bill Banning Lessons that KKK Was ‘Morally Wrong’ ”
A year after the massive Black Lives Matter protests of 2020, conservatives are scrambling to unring the bell and reject critical examinations of US history, choosing instead to emphasize a narrative of the nation’s development that smooths over many of the more uncomfortable details.
The Texas Senate recently passed a bill against Critical Race Theory that rolls back, among other lessons, the ability of teachers to teach that what the white supremacist terrorist group the Ku Klux Klan did was “morally wrong.”
Senate Bill 3 seeks to undo parts of another law passed last month, which was itself a very restrictive bill reacting to the supposed teaching of Critical Race Theory in schools, which opponents say is anti-American.
Critical Race Theory is an academic movement based on the theory that racism may still be present in laws, rules, and institutional practices that don’t explicitly mention race or privilege one race over another. It became the target of conservative ire in the wake of the nationwide uprisings against anti-Black police violence and white supremacy that rocked the United States last summer, following the death of George Floyd at the hands of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin.
Those protests, billed by many as part of a reckoning with white supremacy in US history and its enduring facets in the present, encouraged many to take a more critical look at that history, including the US military.
Editing An Already-Restrictive Bill
One section of the June law that would be struck if Senate Bill 3 became law requires students be taught about “historical documents related to the civic accomplishments of marginalized populations.”
The section to be cut includes “the Chicano movement,” a civil rights struggle by Mexicans and their descendants who lived in the parts of Mexico that were annexed by the US after the 1846-48 Mexican-American War; “women’s suffrage and equal rights”; and “the history of white supremacy, including but not limited to the institution of slavery, the eugenics movement, and the Ku Klux Klan, and the ways in which it is morally wrong.”
However, the bill doesn’t stop there: it also cuts studies of Black civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech, the works of Chicano labor leader Cesar Chavez, women’s suffragist Susan B. Anthony’s writings about the struggle to win women the right to vote, and documents about Native American history.
It further bans teachers from teaching that “the advent of slavery in the territory that is now the United States constituted the true founding of the United States; or with respect to their relationship to American values, slavery and racism are anything other than deviations from, betrayals of, or failures to live up to the authentic founding principles of the United States, which include liberty and equality.”
The June law, passed as House Bill 3979, said that “a teacher may not be compelled to discuss a particular current event or widely debated and currently controversial issue of public policy or social affairs,” also adding that “a teacher who chooses to discuss a topic described by Subdivision (1) shall, to the best of the teacher’s ability, strive to explore the topic from diverse and contending perspectives without giving deference to any one perspective.” This language is preserved in Senate Bill 3.
Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, who presides over the Senate, said Friday the bill would “make certain that critical race philosophies including the debunked 1619 founding myth, are removed from our school curriculums statewide,” referring to the New York Times’ 1619 Project, a Black history project which derives its name from the date the first enslaved Africans arrived in the English colonies that were to become the United States.
“Parents want their students to learn how to think critically, not be indoctrinated by the ridiculous leftist narrative that America and our Constitution are rooted in racism,” he added.
However, on the other side, critics said the bill is an unnecessary intrusion into the teaching of certain topics about which teachers cannot simply teach both sides.
“How could a teacher possibly discuss slavery, the Holocaust, or the mass shootings at the Walmart in El Paso or at the Sutherland Springs church in my district without giving deference to any one perspective?,” asked State Sen. Judith Zaffirini, a Democrat.
Terror Group Spreads Hate for 150 Years
The Ku Klux Klan, better known simply as the KKK or The Klan, is a white supremacist group formed by ex-Confederate soldiers and officials after the pro-slavery movement’s defeat in the US Civil War in 1865.
The group targeted for assassination rising Black figures as well as whites who ran schools, clinics or social services that helped the Black community after the end of slavery, and was crushed by the US federal government just years after forming.
However, it re-emerged in the 1910s with a wider focus than just violence against Black people, including anti-Semitism, anti-immigrant and anti-LGBTQ attitudes, anti-Catholic, and opposition to the teaching of Darwinian evolution in schools. It played a major role in the right-wing movement to preserve legal racial segregation in the US South in the 1940s-60s, using similar terrorist tactics as before, but was never repressed like it was in the 1870s.
The US government considers the KKK and its various iterations to beterrorist organizations and the US Department of Homeland Security has said white supremacist groups “remain the most persistent and lethal threat in the homeland.”

‘Rising share of Easily Manipulated PRC Test Which Are Not a “Carnivorous” tests coming back positive For a Mythical “COVID-19” “Virus” Not Scientifically Proved To Exist, in Texas fuels fears of another wave Among The Ignorant of Truth & Reality Sheep’
State officials and virologists say the highly contagious delta variant is causing the rise — and is particularly impacting unvaccinated people.
With less than half of Texans vaccinated and the highly contagious delta variant of the coronavirus spreading, the percentage of COVID-19 tests coming back positive in the state has climbed to a rate unseen since winter.
As of this weekend, Texas’ positivity rate is over 10% — a level that Gov. Greg Abbott and the Trump administration had identified as a red flag earlier in the pandemic. Meanwhile, daily confirmed new case totals and hospitalizations are climbing fast, but are far below their winter peaks.
On Saturday, the seven-day average for new confirmed cases in the state was 2,119. That’s nearly triple the average on the first day of the month, when it was 757. Meanwhile, the number of people hospitalized for the coronavirus in the state climbed from 1,591 on July 1 to 2,834 on Friday.
More than 14,200 people with COVID-19 were hospitalized on Jan. 11 — the highest number of pandemic hospitalizations in Texas so far.
But the positivity rate stands out among the rising numbers because experts view it as a leading indicator.
“The early signs are similar. They are all right there,” said Benjamin Neuman, a virologist and professor at Texas A&M University. “Epidemiologists read test positivity stats like the low tide, and it looks as though we are in for a big wave.”
In the last seven days, about 144,000 molecular tests, such as nasal or throat swab tests, were administered in Texas, and 10.2% of those came back positive, according to the Texas Department of State Health Services. The last time the state’s positivity rate was above 10% was in February, and the rate hit an all-time low of 2.8% in mid-June.
Don’t seem the little darlings have a problem with communistic disarming of Texicans whole learning the finer techniques of enduring asexual orgasms with huge multicolored dildos.
Well, at least they are learning SOMETHING at UT.
Use Liberal amounts Of KY Jelly when inserting huge dildos into their anal cavities perhaps?
General Robert E Lee who did not like slavery, which was still ongoing in the USA’s Northern Sates AFTER the confederacy no longer existed and no slaves remained in the South, OR USA terrorist troops gang raping little Southern Children & their mothers to death, Black & White, Burning Grandpas & Grandmas to death in their own Homes, Stealing everything, digging up the dead to rob, gang raping minister’s daughters because their fathers prayed for their country and leaders as the Bible Commanded.
Wonder if the reason the SA is taring down his Statues is because he objected to slavery or USA Terrorist “soldiers” Gang Raping Little Children To Death.
They don’t teach this true history at UT, but hey, the little darlings learn the fine details of maneuvering a huge dildo into their body cavities!

‘UT hired consultant for up to $1.1 million to revamp battered image of ‘Eyes of Texas’ song’
As outrage swirled among University of Texas at Austin students last fall over the school’s alma mater, “The Eyes of Texas,” and its early association with campus minstrel shows, President Jay Hartzell made a classic higher education decision: He organized a committee.
This one, he said, would include 24 Longhorn athletes, historians, professors and students who would investigate and “chronicle the full history of ‘The Eyes’ and recommend ways we can openly acknowledge, share and learn from it.”
But by the time the group released its final report in March, a new name had quietly been added to its ranks: Brad Deutser, a Houston consultant who helps organizations with everything from company culture to crisis communications and branding.
In fact, UT-Austin had hired Deutser and his company to two contracts worth up to $1.1 million to revamp the image of the alma mater, along with broader organizational projects including a new communication and engagement strategy for the university, and defining “what it means to be a Longhorn,” according to copies of the contracts obtained by The Texas Tribune through an open records request.
Ultimately, the committee’s report concluded the intent of the song was “not overtly racist,” and could not find primary documents that tied the phrase to Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee, as previously asserted by some members of the school community.

A total of 86 people at a water theme park in Spring, Texas had to be decontaminated after they were exposed to toxic chemicals. The park has been closed, and an investigation has been launched to find the cause of the incident.
Thirty-one people were taken to hospital after they were exposed to what officials believe was a mixture of bleach and sulfuric acid in Six Flags Hurricane Harbor Splashtown in Spring on Saturday. Local media reported that a lifeguard overseeing a kiddie pool was first to feel unwell, and it was not long before dozens of other visitors, including children, felt symptoms such as skin and inhalation irritation consistent with chemical poisoning.
Among those rushed to hospital was a three-year-old toddler, who is believed to be in stable condition. A pregnant woman who went into labor was also hospitalized. Another 55 people, who had to be decontaminated by hazmat teams, refused to go to hospital after being treated on the spot.
As the incident was unraveling, the Spring Fire Department reported that it was “providing emergency care for dozens of people who have been affected by a chemical leak.” However, Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo later told a press conference that the samples taken in the aftermath of the incident did not show any elevated levels of chemicals.
“Every sample that they took was within the acceptable limits, but obviously we have evidence from these folks of being sick that something was wrong,” Hidalgo said. She noted that the park’s own alarm systems did not signal any unusual readings either.
Harris County Fire Marshal’s Office reported that “hypochlorite solution and 35% sulfuric acid” are believed to be involved in the incident.
A-BUTT -HE IS A yankee CARPETBAGGER MONKEY & A POX ON THE OCCUPIED Republic of Texas, so I just threw this in
CDC health officials are now working vigorously to trace contacts of anyone directly exposed to a Dallas resident who recently returned to the US on a trip to Nigeria. The man is now in isolation at a Dallas hospital after testing positive for an extremely rare disease known as Monkeypox – said to be the first ever case of its kind in Texas.
It’s also the first case seen inside the United States in two decades, with the last significant outbreak in 2003 including 47 reported human cases. The infected person flew into Atlanta international airport on July 8, and then on to Dallas Love Field the next day.
Dallas health officials have declared there’s “no cause for alarm” given monkeypox has a lower fatality rate than smallpox. The two diseases are similar in that they can cause a severe rash which lasts for about a month. But the rash causing large swollen bumps all over the body appear particularly nasty and painful-looking in the case of Monkeypox.
However monkeypox may not be as easily spreadable given it’s carried by rodents or other animals and human-to-human transmission is through bodily fluids and respiratory droplets.
It usually takes seven to 14 days after a person is exposed to the monkeypox virus to develop symptoms, according to the CDC, which begin like many other viruses: fatigue, fever, headache, muscle aches.
Within a week of symptom onset, an infected person develops a bumpy, raised rash that often spreads to the entire body. The person is considered contagious until those raised bumps have scabbed over and fallen off.
It’s this lengthy period in which a person may not know they have it which may allow for a rapid undetected outbreak.
Monkeypox symptoms typically begin with flu-like illness and swelling of the lymph nodes, then a widespread rash on the face and body, according to the CDC. Most infections last 2-4 weeks. Infections with this strain of monkeypox are fatal in about 1 in 100 people, but the mortality rate can be higher among those with weakened immune systems.
CDC information on the illness indicates that while the main carrier is still unknown, it’s believed that “African rodents are suspected to play a part in transmission.”
Given the rarity of the disease, there’s as yet no treatment despite past attempts to develop a vaccine. CDC officials have expressed that an outbreak is unlikely given current mask mandates and other distancing measures aboard domestic airlines due to the coronavirus pandemic – likely meaning the infected Dallas resident was unlikely to have spread it during the two flights inbound to the US, or at least that’s the hoped-for optimistic scenario.
If Facebook continues to allow sex traffickers to use its platform to recruit victims, then members of the public are free to sue the tech giant, the Supreme Court of Texas has ruled.
Social media is not a “lawless no-man’s land,” the Court decided, siding with prosecutors that Facebook is being negligent by failing to do more to stop sex traffickers from using its platform to commit sex crimes.
“We do not understand Section 230 to ‘create a lawless no-man’s-land on the Internet’ in which states are powerless to impose liability on websites that knowingly or intentionally participate in the evil of online human trafficking,” the Court’s majority declared.
As we reported, Facebook is a hotbed of criminal activity for sex perverts, as is Twitter. In fact, the consortium of social media is a cesspool of pedophilia and other human rights violations.
For many years, Silicon Valley has argued that it has no obligation or legal right to police content – unless, of course, it supports conservative causes – because of the Communications Decency Act (CDA).
That is now being challenged, however, as the justice system is finally catching up to the machinations of Big Tech, which involves actively policing political content while sanctioning sex crimes against minors.
“Holding internet platforms accountable for words or actions of their users is one thing, and the federal precedent uniformly dictates that section 230 does not allow it,” the Texas Supreme Court further ruled.
“Holding internet platforms accountable for their own misdeeds is quite another thing. This is particularly the case for human trafficking.”
A man hailed by mainstream media outlets for standing in line for six hours to cast his ballot in last year’s Democratic primary has been arrested for voting illegally. He faces up to 40 years in prison if convicted.
Hervis Rogers, 62, was a felon on parole at the time he voted in the November 2018 general election and the March 2020 Democratic primary, according to a two-count indictment by Texas prosecutors. His arrest set off a storm of criticism from the ACLU, anti-incarceration activists, and left-wing pundits, who claimed that it was unjust and racist, since Rogers is black.
Having a Democratic voter who went viral for his determination turn out to be a felon voting illegally is rather controversial for a party that has fought against claims of illegalities surrounding the 2020 vote. Some have argued that the prosecution of Rogers is another attempt by Republicans to disenfranchise non-white voters.
“This is a voter-suppression prosecution, pure and simple, a poster child for Jim Crow 2.0,” the Texas AFL-CIO union group said. “Unfortunately, it confirms that Texas’ shameful legacy of disenfranchisement is alive and well and desperately needs fixing.”
Rogers was hailed for waiting in line more than six hours to vote on Super Tuesday 2020, reportedly casting the last ballot at a Houston polling site after 1am local time. National media outlets such as USA Today picked up the story, quoting him as saying, “I wanted to get my vote in to voice my opinion. I wasn’t going to let anything stop me, so I waited it out.” The local NPR affiliate said he voted for Joe Biden.
Say I have some dandy ocean front property for sell cheap in the Shara Desert.

‘Kalifornia, Land of Fruits & Nuts Researchers Discover America’s First Mythical No One Has A Verified Sample of “COVID-19” “Virus, “Triple” Mutant “COVID” Strain’
Lately, public health ‘experts’ in the US, Australia and across the globe have been engaging in blatant fearmongering focused on mutant COVID strains including the Delta and Lamba variants (the latter of which was recently discovered in Peru, while Delta was first identified in India and has since spread across the globe).
And now, American authorities have yet another variant to pound the alarm about: researchers in California have discovered the epsilon variant, which features a “triple mutation” on the spike protein that the virus uses to infect humans, making it (in theory) more infectious, according to the Daily Mail.
This isn’t the first time scientists have discovered a so-called “triple variant”. Scientists in India have isolated variants with “double” and “triple” mutations.
Researchers from the University of Washington and Vir Biotechnology, based in San Francisco, found that the variant had three mutations on the spike protein, which the virus uses to enter and infect human cells.
The Epsilon variant was first identified in May 2020 and was virtually nonexistent until October.
