2020: Crime In Houston


As 2020 comes to a close, it was a brutal year for violent crime in the city of Houston. Murder rates, and domestic violence haven't been this bad in over a decade. Many people want to blame the pandemic, and even more say it's the fault of Houston D.A. Kim Ogg. But the truth is, the real problem is actually in the courts, specifically with democrat judges. Andy Kahan of Crimestoppers told KTRH "it's easy to blame the pandemic, but the real issue is the revolving door at the courthouse." Basically, due to PR bonds, violent felons are being released from from prison. Even worse, not only does Kahan acknowledge it, but he says the criminals are well aware of it and have already figured out how to take advantage of the system, "I have many friends in law enforcement who tell me when they pick somebody up they just laugh, because they know they're going to be back out in a few hours." "It's a good time to be a criminal in Houston." As chilling as that appears, Kahan is optimistic there's going to be swift changes made, once the state legislative session starts next month. "You are going to see a major push to deal with what I call the 'Harris County Bond Pandemic', to try and get it under control."
