HOUSTON More than 15 Asian women in Houston and Fort Bend County have been attacked after leaving work, investigators said Monday.

The person used a crow bar to smash her passenger side window in. A neighbor watched, not knowing what happened.All you hear is boom boom and then you hear a shatter, said Tristina Wilson, a neighbor.

The victim tried to defend herself. Minutes later, she ran across the street for help.In June, we showed you video of crooks using stolen credit cards at a gas station. Now, officers believe the same group of men is going around targeting Asian women.

The victim’s family says investigators aren’t doing enough. They re afraid someone might end up dying if the robbers don’t get caught. They’ve used six different cars in the crimes, including a blue Dodge sedan. According to the Fort Bend County Sheriff s Office, most of the crimes involve women who were followed home from along Bellaire Boulevard on the west side of town.Police do not have detailed suspect descriptions.  Information which leads to the apprehension and filing of charges could earn a reward of up to $5,000. Anyone with information is asked to call Fort Bend County Crime Stoppers at 281-342-TIPS (8477). “They target them because they’re helpless and defenseless and they know they won’t do anything. You know, they…don’t have a voice and they know that. They’re cowards…to pick on women.”

Fort Bend County and the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) will conduct a public meeting regarding the proposed improvements to FM 1093 from SH 99 to FM 1463 in Fort Bend County.

The Rosenberg Police Dept (a suburb of Houston) is stating on their Facebook page (or trying to strongly imply it) that we need “God back in our schools”.

What is it with theocrats and their desire to push their religious beliefs on the
rest of us through the government?

Children aren’t adults, they don’t have the reasoning skills to see through the B.S., as when they are older.

That is why theocrats try to get kids young. Americans United for the Separation of Church and State and the Freedom from Religion Foundation work to ensure that the state and church are separate. Please check them out. Thanks.

Do you understand your property rights?

Harris and Fort Bend County Toll Roads offers residence quicker access to central Houston as well as surrounding areas, however these toll roads can cause problems for landowners who are in the direct path of the development.  After speaking with a few land owners who reviewed “Eminent Domain” letters from their city or county, I thought I should touch up on my land rights as well as my viewers.  Below is Section 17 of the Bill of Rights for the Texas Constitution.  

Sec. 17. TAKING, DAMAGING, OR DESTROYING PROPERTY FOR PUBLIC USE; SPECIAL PRIVILEGES AND IMMUNITIES; CONTROL OF PRIVILEGES AND FRANCHISES. (a) No person’s property shall be taken, damaged, or destroyed for or applied to public use without adequate compensation being made, unless by the consent of such person, and only if the taking, damage, or destruction is for: (1) the ownership, use, and enjoyment of the property, notwithstanding an incidental use, by: (A) the State, a political subdivision of the State, or the public at large; or (B) an entity granted the power of eminent domain under law; or (2) the elimination of urban blight on a particular parcel of property. (b) In this section, “public use” does not include the taking of property under Subsection (a) of this section for transfer to a private entity for the primary purpose of economic development or enhancement of tax revenues. © On or after January 1, 2010, the legislature may enact a general, local, or special law granting the power of eminent domain to an entity only on a two-thirds vote of all the members elected to each house. (d) When a person’s property is taken under Subsection (a) of this section, except for the use of the State, compensation as described by Subsection (a) shall be first made, or secured by a deposit of money; and no irrevocable or uncontrollable grant of special privileges or immunities shall be made; but all privileges and franchises granted by the Legislature, or created under its authority, shall be subject to the control thereof. (Amended Nov. 3, 2009.)
