    Thank you to the Walmart employees who jumped in to disarm him.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    ' The mother of a man charged in the fatal shooting of a Texas police officer said her son is a talented software engineer who has been struggling with depression for months after a bitter breakup with his longtime girlfriend.

    snip.....She said she talked with her son Thursday evening, and that he had been taking the prescription anti-anxiety drug Xanax and drinking tequila.

    Those employees are heros. I guess we all need to be ready to jump in at any time.

    The news said that he was shot first in his vest and then in his neck.

    I feel sick. I do not understand.

    Blessings to his family and friends and the employees...and the family and friends of the shooter.

    Rest in Peace, Jaime.

    It's so sad and tragic

    Apparently, the night of he has no memory. He was drinking tequila and taking xanax. I guess he woke up to a huge nightmare.

    http://www.statesman.com/news/local/...d-2289833.html

    Mary O'Dell, of Colorado, told The Associated Press that when she spoke with Daniel in the hours before the incident, he had been taking the anti-anxiety drug Xanax and drinking tequila. She said he had been acting unusually in recent months.
    O'Dell also said an attorney for Daniel told her that Daniel had no memory of the shooting. "He wasn't aware this whole particular incident had taken place; he was under the influence of tequila and Xanax," she said

    TX - Officer Padron’s accused killer, Brandon Daniel, to stand trial

    Officer Padron’s accused killer to stand trial

    On Tuesday morning, 10 women and 2 men will begin to weigh the fate of 26-year-old Brandon Daniel.

    Brandon Daniel faces capital murder charges for the killing of Austin Police Officer Jaime Padron.

    In April of 2012, Daniel was arrested in the death of Senior Austin Police Officer Jaime Padron who was responding to a disturbance call at the Wal-Mart on Parmer Lane. Employees called police and said Daniel was drunk and trying to steal from the store. When Padron arrived, police say Daniel tried to run and it led to a struggle between the two men. Padron was shot in the neck during the incident.

    http://kxan.com/2014/02/17/officer-p...trial-tuesday/

    Trial Live stream: http://kxan.com/live-stream/

    The defense is claiming that Brandon Daniel had just broken up with his girlfriend and was on Xanax, therefore he is not guilty.

    McCarthy said a co-worker was suspicious of Daniel based on his actions. Told him to "keep an eye" on him. That co-worker then called police

    McCarthy is done. Next is Lincoln, another Wal-Mart employee who pinned Daniel to the ground.

    Looks like we are about to hear the 311 phone call LeMere made regarding Daniel.




    Chris Sadeghi @chrissadeghi
    Lincoln LeMere called police that night. "We had a customer that appeared to be intoxicated." Said he called 311 to keep him from driving.

    Hey Softail! I am having trouble getting that link to work. Maybe because I have the livefeed open on the Amanda Hayes deliberations?

    YAY!

    This was a huge story when it happened. I remember watching his funeral, and bawling like a baby!

    His defense is ridiculous IMO!
