H-Town’s Quanell X handed over to KTRK-TV’s Wayne Dolcefino that video of HPD’s finest kicking a kid around for evading arrest. The video aired last night. The incident took place last year and a judge had ordered the media not to air it – huh! You can go to Channel 13’s website to check it out.
Here’s the Chron story.
Of course, I don’t know if showing the video last night had the impact desired by Quanell X. A lot of us were more worried about not freezing our arses off last night. Most of the local news coverage yesterday focused on rolling blackouts, school closings, event cancellations, icing of our roadways, and possible snow in the forecast. Callous as it may sound, I don’t think folks paid a whole lot of attention to the video. If someone tuned in late, they probably thought the Dynamo changed the color of their uniforms from orange to blue.
The H-Town Mayor wants somebody prosecuted for releasing the video. Stay tuned!
Who was the first MLBer ever to win the MVP and Rookie of the Year in the same season?
Speaking of, it looks like the Dynamo will finally get to have a groundbreaking for their new crib this Saturday.
They should have called it The Cardtable last night because not many folks showed up for The Roundtable.
Commentary dodged the rolling blackouts yesterday – sort of. My ‘hood got spared. We went to a Second Ward eatery for lunch and folks were eating in the dark. We didn’t stick around.
Fred Lynn of course in 1975 as a Red Sox was named the AL MVP and AL Rookie of the Year. Fred Lynn is celebrating his 59th BD today.
Commentary and MariGirl watched the installation of the final segment of the new high definition scoreboard at The Yard yesterday – cool.
