TODAY'S NUMBERS HAVE
ALREADY SURPASSED YESTERDAYS

I have said since day one, I wanted to put my readers in the courtroom.  I have done that.  All of you new readers make it easier for me.  I know I am doing something in terms of educating the people. Today a reader showed up to watch and at the first break she told me my reporting is just like being in the courtroom.  I am very, very pleased.

25 years ago I taught American Government at Houston Community College.  To my new readers I have a masters in American Government with a Thesis on the Juridical Methodology of the US Supreme Court.  I have a JD, from the University of Houston Law School, and an MEd - Teaching UT Arlington, such as my other masters.

I am first and foremost an educator.  When I first came to Brownsville I thought I had an adjunct teaching position at TSC.  The person in personnel made it clear to me that the second I left the office my application would be lost.  This was after the third time I submitted my application.

Like everything else in this town the hiring process was corrupted and promises were not kept.

Nothing would give me greater joy than to go back as an adjunct at TSC - in fact other than the department chair and maybe one full time instructor I think TSC should start with adjuncts and then hire the full  time staff from the best adjuncts.

I am going to say something which I know will get the worst of Brownsville to use against me.

For me justice is a serious matter.  I believe in it.  If Villalobos has counts dismissed by  Judge Hanen I will trust Judge Hanen's ruling.  He does not favor Villalobos - he favors the process.  I am talking about this case.  Other cases may be another matter.

If the jury finds Villalobos not guilty on the remaining counts.  I will respect it.  They appear to be a very studious group. 

But today at lunch - based on everything - the evidence - the mess-ups by the DOJ - the obfuscation used by Androphy and then Wynne against Rick Canales (the latter was after lunch technically) - it is just too much to watch how the system is played as a game.

I sat in my truck at Subway and did everything in my power not to  collapse physically and emotionally.  Our troops do not die so that lawyers can make a mockery of the  system.  Within the acceptable rules they are doing their job.

The problem is the current design in the  system.  The lawyers are just playing the system.

Bobby, tsc is hiring. Please go to their website to see if there's any positions you would be interested in and apply. Some instructor positions are there. Thanks for all your work covering the trial. I agree with you. Ultimately it's about the process and te burden of proof. The fed evidence seems weak based on your posts and Irma's.

the problem with applying is - I have to get letters of recommendations - Neal Tannahill with Houston Community college gave me a great review - several of my masters in education instructors gave me great reviews - but that was 8 years ago - I cannot ask that they redo the letters 8 years later and TSC will not accept the old letters. If I knew they would accept the old letters I would apply

I'm really not sure. But I would assume they would want recent letters. We could use a student oriented professor at the new and improved TSC

You are correct about the system of justice. There are thousands of Villalobos waiting in the wings for their opportunity to juice the system. It is ridiculous to expect the same system that produced the problem to solve the problem. It is all one and the same. I hope you are independently wealthy because the chances of you being gainfully employed in Brownsville are nil.
