Yes, The Houston Chronicle is playing up the PIT BULL aspect of the Joe Warren arrest case. It is an article by Cindy Horswell and she has even drug up old stories about the lead investigator in this case. However she has also highlighted the alleged angle that DA Mike Little was left out of the loop while providing information that could only have come from DA Mike Little. Virtually every news agency is reporting that the Sheriff's Office has no comment on the case at this time, yet somehow the Houston Chronicle has dug up the name of the lead investigator. The Houston Chronicle is speaking with DA Mike Little and it’s funny how someone who claims to have been out of the loop could know so much about the case. This is nothing new to the Outsiders, we wrote about Mike Little playing dumb about this case back in October of 2010 in our article entitled: "Taking Liberty, Part 3". In that article, published on libertydispatch.blogspot.com (LD), we demonstrated with numerous Public Information Act (PIA) Requests that many local governments were covering up the gun and threat aspects of the dog incident at and next door to First Assistant DA Joe Warren's home.
The Houston Chronicle article does not have any dates and as such it would lead many readers to think that this "PIT BULL" story is new and that (Banjo Music Playing in Background) the Sheriff is arresting the wrong people over the matter. This story is in fact an old case. The Strawn Family, who are next door neighbors to Joe Warren, own the pit bulls in question and have already been to court. That part of the case has already been adjudicated and the Strawn Family had their dogs returned to them long ago. However, even that part of the case was a story in and of itself as the Strawn Family had to appeal convictions from laws that were not even on the books by a local J.P. (Bobby Raider). Liberty County has been a very scary place to face charges in court, especially when one's accuser has political ties. The Outsiders also demonstrated that DA Mike Little had a history prosecuting a member of the Strawn Family in our article entitled: "Taking Liberty, Part 3". With that kind of a history it is easy to see why the Strawn Family would be fearful of filing charges against a politically connected government official. They did not file charges until after Liberty Dispatch published our story demonstrating the cover up, giving them some hope that their complaints would be taken seriously by the Sheriff's Office.
The Houston Chronicle is missing the whole point. This case is not about the dogs, it is about the cover up of what the First Assistant DA did and even the covering up of the investigation into the matter. The Outsiders have used the Texas PIA law for good reason, we now have in writing the official words from DA Mike Little's Office about the original case numbers (10-04735 & 10-0463) regarding the Pit Bull and Joe Warren Gun incident: “We do not have any records responsive to your request.” is what the DA's office had to say back on September 3, 2010. We got this “we know nothing” response on the heels of getting similar run around from both the City of Liberty and the City of Liberty Municipal Court Judge Bobby Rader. The evidence is attached to "Taking Liberty, Part 3" published on libertydispatch.blogspot.com
According to the Houston Chronicle, DA Mike Little claims he's been out of the Sheriff Office's loop, but he's been saying stuff like that since September and he has continued to play dumb even after we sent him that PIA request to remind him that his First Assistant DA has issues and he hasn't even bothered to find out what. See our PIA request dated 09-01-2010 and note that point #4 reminds DA Mike Little that it involves First Assistant DA Joe Warren saying “I will kill you”. Also see the signed attached official response from Liberty County DA Mike Little dated 09-03-2010. Time will tell, but it is most certain that evidence will show that it was DA Mike Little and his staff who were deliberately avoiding this case and that is what forced the legal process to find new ways to handle this case. Remember Mr. Little is a professional obfuscator who takes great pride in his abilities to deliver his tautological disinformation to the members of the press in combination with his position as the Liberty County District Attorney.
The question is simple! Did Mr. Little tell the truth to the press regarding his statement wherein he said…
”District Attorney Mike Little said he had not received any information on the investigation from the Liberty County Sheriff's Office which filed the charges against Warren."
DA Mike Little: "My office has been left out of the loop," he said. "This has been handled in an extremely unusual way. In the past, allegations against any public official are reviewed by a grand jury before charges are filed."
