A high-speed chase through two North Texas counties this morning may involve the suspect wanted in connection with Tuesday’s murder of the head of Colorado’s Department of Corrections.

This morning’s incident began in Montague County, where, just north of Bowie, a sheriff’s deputy pulled over a man driving an older model black Cadillac with Colorado license plates. According to several news accounts, that man then fired three times at Deputy James Boyd, who took two bullets to the chest — he was wearing a bullet-proof vest — and one in the ear. Boyd was transported, via helicopter, to a Fort Worth hospital; his condition is unknown at present, but Wise County officials say his injuries are non-life-threatening.

Best part of the article:

according to Wise County Sheriff David Walker, he is “legally deceased” but being kept alive for the purpose of organ harvesting.

Colorado Sheriffs will stand up to the Colorado governor but Don’t mess with Texas.

I zoomed in and noticed Texas plates- 644 P?? They described it at a black older Cadillac. Hitman from Texas took care of the Co prison official?

“Authorities said the man didn’t have identification on him, but he will be fingerprinted in Tarrant County. Hoskins said the man is a white male, “probably in his 30s.” He estimated his weight between 150 and 175 pounds.”

Also headed South. I’m guessing toward the Mexican border.

No, those look like colorado plates:

Colorado plates have that jagged green at the top as it is a mountain scape.

Yes. Good eye.Here's a little more, still no id.

The suspect was driving a black Cadillac with Colorado license plates. Authorities in Colorado described the Cadillac as "a vehicle of interest." A vehicle that was seen near where Clements was shot was described as a late-model 2-door, similar to a 1990s Lincoln, shiny and black, according to the El Paso County Sheriff's Department.

Technically dead yet kept alive to harvest organs.

People seem to have a problem identifying license plates.
I remember right after the Holmes Colo shooting there were posts that his car had Tennessee plates but they were clearly Colorado.

“Who - and what - is he?”

I have read nothing about why they think this particular guy might be related to the assassination of the Colorado prison official.

This is much like the connection the media made between his shooting and the signing of those anti-gun laws by the governor that same day.

CNN reports on their website the plates don’t match those connected to CO shooting but LEOs are still looking into any possible connection. A man described as white 30’s and 150-175lbs. Probably trying to scare up next of kin and notify- then we’ll get a name.

IMO, This is one of the main reasons corrupt governments want to outlaw guns. They know mass murder by insane individuals can be easily committed without guns but they also know guns are the best tool for targeted “personal business” executions by disgruntled citizens.

When people are hopeless and ruined by corruption, they are far more likely to take matters into their own hands.

Politicians and crooked cops don’t want to walk the streets thinking every other person can pull a gun on them. They want to pillage with impunity.

"Update at 7:57 p.m., by Tristan Hallman: KUSA-TV in Denver reports that Colorado sources say the man is Evan Spencer Ebel, 28. Ebel is a parolee with a lengthy criminal record.

The Associated Press reports that Denver police are en route to Texas to investigate whether Ebel was involved in the killing of Nathan Leon, a pizza delivery man, on Sunday in Golden, Colo."

White Supremacist? Really? Color me skeptical. Racial prison affiliations in prison are the rule to my understanding...we have some freeper round here who works or worked in the pen who could better speak to that. Anyway, somehow I doubt this was racially motivated by an evil white conspiracy because the denver post supposes so...Fantasy writer passing himself off as a journalist be my bet.
