    Wow... this is amazing news. I’m hopeful for the remaining officer who was shot that family requested no updates be released. I’m also shocked at the fact that the officer with the knee injury is still hospitalized. I’m not even sure what type of injury to the knee one can suffer that would involve multiple days as an inpatient in the hospital. It must’ve been a terrible injury. Praying for all of their recoveries!

    In regards to the Knee injury the officer sustained, he could have torn 1 or possibly more ligaments, fractured a bone around the knee, had severe muscle damage or anything else that might have needed surgery & monitoring afterward. JMO & I am no expert!

    I guess the reason I’m shocked is because my son had a knee injury including everything you listed here, plus a torn meniscus, and his was repaired in an outpatient surgery. It makes me cringe to think of what all this poor officer must’ve had wrong with his knee that it required multiple days as an inpatient. My son’s injury was horrific and took 9+ months to rehab it.

    I am so sorry that your son had to go through that! I hope he is ok now! I am not sure about the injury this officer sustained, obviously, but I hope he recovers soon too.

    This is very very disturbing.
    How in the world did we come to this?!?
    This whole terrible incident was based on a LIE?
    I don’t even know what to say.
    I hope Chief Acevedo exposes the whole ugly truth to get to the bottom of it.
    It will be painful, but it is the best way to face this.....full disclosure.
    Awful.

    Judging by his words, he will.

    'You lie, you die' | HPD undercover cop lied about drug buy that led to deadly raid, Chief Acevedo says

    Once I seen about seven different neighbors interviewed on tv I knew this was wrong not one person had a bad word to say about the couple.One guy even said dude wouldn't go fishing without a license.I really feel sorry for the couple and their dog.

    (Omg :( )

    Still catching up but wanted to say I was just looking at her SM and noted how she had an image remembering/saluting 911 firefighters. I thought, that doesn’t seem like a cop shooter?

    Catching up now, thank you for posting the news conference video and updates.

    Makes you wonder if the undercover was the one that found the bag of white powder.Haven't seen his sm but his neighbors said he was a big supporter of law enforcement also.

    Why would an experienced decorated police officer lie about the circumstances in order to get the warrant? This is just so hard for me to understand the reasoning and motive surrounding this.

    He refers imo to an affidavit that was not supposed to be released by the media but was:

    DOCUMENTS: Read affidavits obtained by Channel 2 Investigates
    Warrant 1 | Warrant 2

    https://media.click2houston.com/doc...h Warrant 1_1550258738411_19525547_ver1.0.PDF

    https://media.click2houston.com/doc...h Warrant 2_1550258738228_19525546_ver1.0.PDF

    Officer 'will be charged' in connection with deadly shootout, HPD says

    “HOUSTON - Affidavits obtained Friday alleged that “material untruths or lies” were used to get a search warrant for a southeast Houston home last month where a raid turned into a deadly shootout, according to Houston police Chief Art Acevedo.“

    What a disgusting development.
    I will never get the police worship that is so prevalent in the US.

    My gut told me something was wrong. The couple reacted like this was a home invasion. Did the undercover LE wear uniforms? The comments from everyone who knew this couple. And no heroin was found.

    Officer in question was named in the “leaked” affidavit.
    The Houston Chronicle published a story on his shady history on the force.
    I guess it is obvious his undercover LE days are over.
    I am so disappointed in this development, but I fully support Chief Acevedo cleaning house of the bad apples in his 5000+ member police force.

    Houston police officer in drug raid had previous allegations against him

    Video @ link:

    Allegations in drug raid not reflective of officers: union chief

    The Houston Police Union president, who made fiery and controversial comments the night of the deadly raid, says the alleged actions of one officer should not reflect on the hundreds of others.

    "We believe, truly, this is only one person who has caused the issues with this case and there is only one person who is facing these types of allegations right now," said Joe Gamaldi, referring to senior police officer Gerald Goines.
