Another officer was shot to death in Houston this morning 14 days before the election, 7 months into the pandemic

This is too much. 

HPD veteran Sgt. Harold Preston was killed during a domestic violence call today. 

Another officer, shot in the arm is expected to be alright.

Just yesterday, HPD announced a Houston anti crime initiative.

Friday morning, HFD arson detective Lemeul Bruce was shot to death while pursuing a potential arson suspect ~ here in the Heights. Near NW mall on 18th. A street I know well, and where I would not imagine this happening.

My dad used to take me to JC Park down the street from where that happened. That park was across the street from General Electric he worked as a machinist. 

To now link Bruce's death with this location, lace it into memory, is tough. This should not be happening. 

The pandemic is causing so much chaos in this now normal way of life. Not new. 

Wear your mask. Protect yourself and other people because the pandemic is not going away any time soon.

Texas is still seeing 50K cases a day. It should have only 10K at most say experts. 

A vaccine scientist warns that the next few months warns that the next four or five months could be "one of the darkest chapters in modern American history. Just get ready for it and remember that it will get better.

Yet that didn't make too many headlines. Today, FLOTUS still has a lingering cough from COVID-19.  


Anyway, have a nice night!

Winter comes to Houston next week!
