Oh the Irony! Houston Police Union Prez Puts "Dirt Bags" on Notice While Crooked Killer Cop Heals in Hospital
On January 28, 2019, a no-knock warrant was issued by a Houston judge, based on information provided him in a sworn affidavit by a cop with decades long "service". The affidavit stated that a paid informant had purchased heroin from a home in Houston, Tx. It was likely Same Shit Different Day for both the cop who claimed he'd received the heroin, and the judge issuing the warrant. But it turned out to be all but your typical SSDD!
According to chron.com:
Initially, officials said the purchase netted black tar heroin, though records later showed that it was brown powder form of the illegal narcotic.
The informant also warned police of a "large quantity" of drugs inside, packaged in plastic baggies, and a 9mm handgun, according to a court filing. The following day, on Jan. 28, a municipal court judge signed off on a warrant authorizing the no-knock raid.
Hours later, police broke down the door and shot the couple's pit bull after the animal lunged at them. Tuttle came out from around the back of the house, police said, and started shooting. Inside the home, a wounded officer fell down on the sofa, and Nicholas allegedly tried grabbing his weapon, police said.
Authorities have not yet clarified who fired which of the shots.
Five cops were injured -- four with gunshots -- and the couple of 20 years (Tuttle & Nicholas) were dead, along with their dog. One of the injured cops, still hospitalized today, was the one who swore in the affidavit that heroin had been bought at the house. His name is Gerald Goines. He has supposedly been on the force for over 30 years, and also seems to have a history of being in shootouts and being shot. Once was supposedly during a road rage incident, where the other driver died. Once while peeing in public after an undercover drug buy. A disgusted tenant of the property where the upstanding officer was peeing, shot him in the neck, but was not charged with a crime. For some reason, these are not listed in his personnel file.

When I saw the shit show on the teevee, I knew something wasn't right. It was too weird.
During that hours long shit show, the little wormy guy said blah, blah, blah, thoughts and prayers or some such, then quickly turned his little speech into a threat. (video embeded below)
He said he wanted to speak on behalf of all the cops,
"We are sick and tired of having targets on our back. We are sick and tired of having dirt bags trying to take our lives when all we're trying to do is protect this community and protect our families. Enough is enough! And if you're the ones out there spreading the rhetoric that police officers are the enemy, well just know we've all got your number now. We're gonna be keeping track of all of y'all and we're gonna make sure that we hold YOU accountable every time you stir the pot on our police officers. We've had enough, folks. We're out there doing our jobs every day, putting our lives on the line for our families. Enough is enough!"
I guess since some cops were injured, the rest of the cops had to investigate. That's when an even bigger shit show began.
But on Friday, in the warrants executed by officers investigating the botched raid, it is clear that no confidential informant ever went to the house on 7815 Harding. In fact, all informants who worked with Goines told investigators they did not go in that home.
Investigators returned to Goines for the names of more informants, who had all worked for Goines in the past. They all denied making a buy for Goines at the home. They also denied ever buying drugs from Nicholas or Tuttle.
The warrant shows that two bags of heroin were found in Goines' city vehicle.
There were guns and some weed and some coke found in the home; however, there was NO heroin, and that's what the warrant was for.
According to a search warrant return obtained first by ABC13 on Feb. 8, police recovered four guns, about 18 grams of marijuana and about 1.5 grams of cocaine after the raid.
The weapons they recovered included a Beretta shotgun, a Winchester rifle and a Remington shotgun and rifle, according to the report.
Could it be that the man "serving" the Houston community for over 30 years got shot before he could plant those two bags of heroin in the house?
This puts into question every single "investigation" (cough, cough) this "dirt bag" has ever been involved in. I know very little will happen to him, but the death penalty would easily have been given to a person (especially one of color) who barged into a person's home, unannounced, guns blazing, and murdered two people, drugs or none. Since he's a cop, IF he gets any jail time at all, he'll get special treatment to keep him away from all the other people he might have helped to put away. Not sure why those people would want any harm to come to him, especially if they were actually innocent. /s
The irony of the little weasel guy putting "dirt bags" on notice when he was defending a great big one with a 30 year history of getting paid to be one, was not lost on me.
