Who has been recently indicted and not yet come to trial? Who is about to be indicted? Persons of interest.

An ADA and a DA are killed already this year... in a county not exactly heavily populated? Dude LEO...they are connected

Smells like Mexican Drug Cartels

You can bet it’s Mex. Cartels if they refuse to say who may be behind the killings. The big push for Illegal Alien Amnesty cannot be stalled with folks freaking about the Mex Drug Cartels

Mexican Cartels armed with Obamaguns via Fast+Furious.

Ironic that the biggest gun smuggler (Obama) is “calling for” citizens to surrender their guns.

He makes proclamations between smuggling guns to Drug Cartels and to his fellow Moslem Brotherhood terrorists.

Typical lying moslem.

“Authorities have also been trying to determine whether Hasse’s killing was related to the murder of Tom Clements, Colorado’s prison director, last month.

The Colorado man implicated in Clements’ murder, Evan Ebel, was killed in a shootout with police in Texas two days after the killing.”

I live in Kaufman county. It so happens that one on my friend's wife worked with the DA's wife at the Terrell State Hospital. She is in shock now as you might imagine. The Sheriff's Dept. is being very tight-lipped.

We heard that several ".223 casings" were recovered at the scene but there is very little in the way of factual information out there. Most believe that all of this is the work the Mexican cartels or the Aryan Brotherhood and all are shook up and scared.

Mexican drug cartels. They are all over the American Southwest, and are pretty firmly entrenched in the Chicago area, as well.

All the slaughter that has been going on in Mexico for years will now become commonplace here.

Thanks a lot, Obungo and Holdup and the Napster.

Who was that prosecutor in Texas who went after the two border agents?

Wasn't his name Sutton?

The killer or killers have been biding their time waiting for things to kool down before striking again. This time the attack seems to have been coordinated with a thunderstorm to mask the sound of gunfire. Sounds as if the investigators haven't a clue and have been grabbing at straws.

That gun from the Wise County shootout was same caliber (9mm) and the ammo the same manufacture (Federal, Remington, Wolf, CCI ?) as the Colorado shooting but not a declared match. How many 9MM are going to have the same ammo with them? If the firing pin and cambering marks don't match then what?

What are you basing this on?

In one sentence you're suggesting there is little factual information and in the next your naming suspects/organizations.

Sound like pure speculation to me.

Actually the prevailing theory by both the FBI and the TDPS is that this is the work of the Aryan Brotherhood, given that the Kaufman DA had announced their involvement in a racketeering investigation of that group on the day the first guy was killed.

With this kind of “hit”, I would suspect they use a different firearm for the 2nd round.

Only true street thugs, or complete idiots would use the same gun and ammo for their next hit. Especially in this circumstance.

Someone, or someone’s are sending a message. To whom and why is the question at hand.

“Once is happenstance, twice is coincidence, the third time is enemy action.” - Auric Goldfinger

I believe in coincidence, but not in incredibly unlikely coincidence. The second killing may have inspired the first, or have been unrelated. If I were an investigator, I would lean towards related, but keep an open mind.

I was just giving an explanation. He could be “is” or could be “was.” At the time of the prosecution of the border agents, he was a Federal Prosecutor.

Tell your police chief this stuff has been going on and escalating for 3 or so decades. All this while those in law enforcement, the feds and all the politicians complement each other on what a great job they've done as they concoct and create more controlling laws directed at American citizens.

Here's one of them waving and posing for pics...

I am from Texas. I live in Dallas County. I drive through Kaufman County often to get to my parents house in East Texas. Kaufman is such a lovely small town county. I think you are right. It is either Mexican Cartel’s or White Supremisist group. They better get to the bottom of this and put constant protection around the rest of their DA’s in Kaufman.

Kaufman County slayings timeline
DECEMBER 2012: The Texas Department of Public Safety issues a statewide bulletin warning that authorities had received “credible information” that the Aryan Brotherhood was “actively planning retaliation against law enforcement officials” who helped secure indictments in Houston against dozens of members, including the gang’s leadership.

JAN. 31: Kaufman County prosecutor Mark Hasse is shot and killed while getting out of his car near the county courthouse. Authorities acknowledge they are investigating the possibility of a link between the slaying and the Aryan Brotherhood prison gang. However, they quickly add that to their knowledge, Hasse was not currently handling any cases involving Aryan Brotherhood members. They say that labeling the organization the focus of their probe would be premature.

FEB. 9: At a memorial service for Hasse, Kaufman County District Attorney Mike McLelland vows that the prosecutor’s killers will be brought to justice.

MARCH 22: Authorities say the FBI is looking into whether Hasse’s slaying could have any connections to the March 19 slaying of Colorado prisons chief Tom Clements. A federal official said the suspect in Clements’ slaying, Evan Spencer Ebel, was a member of the white supremacist 211 prison gang.

SATURDAY: McLelland and his wife, Cynthia Woodward McLelland, are found fatally shot at their home.

True....however; most of them tend not to be just coincidence.

I can only speak from my true life experiences, in which I have no links to provide to you.

Example....let’s just say someone who works with me in our small business was executed. I would be sad and think some random psycho killing.

A while later, another co-worker and spouse were executed.

NO coincidence.

Last month Kaufman County Assistant District Attorney Mark Hasse was gunned down outside the local courthouse by two men in tactical gear who remain at large, and authorities fear the murders may be connected to a retaliatory plot by Mexican cartels.

The drug cartels freelance their retail distribution and enforcement work to local street and prison gangs across the United States, and have recently been targeting both Mexican and U.S. law enforcement officials for assassination.

In the past the Kaufman District Attorney’s Office assisted in a federal investigation targeting the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas which allegedly is a methamphetamine distributor for the Gulf cartel as reported by Dave Gibson for the Examiner.

That's too bad.

Maybe the government should have secured our borders in the late 1970s when this epic invasion was really ramping up. Every year we're paying them hundred of billions for security were not getting.

Of course the demand for that dirt cheap illegal labor is quite attractive...

Profits regardless of consequences.

After all these years, some are just now finding out about those consequences.

McLelland and Hasse both came to Kaufman Co. from Dallas. Hass was McLellend's assistant DA. The Kaufman Co. DA's office was part of a task force that went after the AB's in a major way and got indictments against 34 AB'ers.

Assistant DA Hasse was assassinated on 1/31/13 in broad daylight in downtown Kaufman on the steps of the courthouse. Now his boss has been killed in his home. We may reasonably infer that a, the killers are fearless and b, they are big on making examples and sending messages.

And though the Sheriff's Dept. is tight-lipped about last night's killings some information is out there. Some is anecdotal, a Sheriff's I know told me that they were leaning towards the AB killing Hasse in revenge for his actions towards them.

Some you can glean from the internet:
