Texas Law Enforcement Still Corrupt

National Public Radio has called attention to what amounts to racially profiled highway robbery in Texas, in the guise of a civil forfeiture program taking drug crime related assets. In at least one case, this was undertaken with the apparent complicity of a local district judge who benefited personally from the seizures.

Meanwhile, a resolution to impeach the top criminal appeal judge in Texas, Sharon Keller, is being considered by the state legislature and many local observers think that she will not be on the bench at the end of this year.
