It is said that these are Arian nations (KKK) groups. Perhaps associated with those prison break and killings in Colorado.

That is certainly possible. It could be a domestic also. I just happen to think it was gang revenge killing.

All very true.

In this instance, or instances, I’m thinking that the Aryan Brotherhood may also be acting as assassins for their allied cartels south of the border. They’re already believed to be one of the primary meth distributors for the cartels, so why not expand their business a bit?

It makes perfect sense....rather than the cartel sending a hit team to “El Norte”, just have your allies, who already have boots on the ground, as it were, do it for you. Classic organized crime cooperation.

Many might think it odd that a group like the AB would cooperate with Mexican drug runners, but for all their talk of “white power”, there’s one color they love more than anything else.

The color of money.

Uh...there appears to be an attempt to link these murders to ‘white supremacists’, or so the article suggests.

This is a little too close to home for me as well. We have property and a home about 9 miles north of Terrell and pay school taxes to Kaufman county. Stuff like this isn’t supposed to happen in the country and it’s darn scary.

They better get to the bottom of this and put constant protection around the rest of their DA’s in Kaufman.

Are there any county DA's left to protect?

Why in tarnation would they do that when they have their own people here?

I don't think you understand...

Our borders have been intentionally left wide open for decades by the corrupt ruling class of both countries.

Ya got Mexican drug bosses living right here in the good old USA not to mention tens of thousands of their gangster soldiers living right here.

In fact, ya got U.S. Government politicians on their payrolls, paid off to ensure those open borders, remain wide open.

I only go out to do what is absolutely necessary. Otherwise, if I do have to go out, I keep my head on a swivel. I used to think living in the midde of the country, 5 miles from I-20 on a two-lane blacktop was about as safe as one could get. It wasn’t until I was in high school we locked our doors during the day. If I am going to anyone’s house out here, I call in advance. Can’t be to careful these days.

It's the same thing they said about the 211's and the Colorado prison boss who was recently eliminated while answering the door to his own home.

My hunch would be either AB or the cartels...One or the other, not both.

Of course there is always the possibility these two were on someones payroll and threaten to talk unless they got a bigger cut...Maybe the cartels paid them to eliminate their AB competition.... Who knows at this point..

But you can bet with recent events of cops targeting other cops, and gangs in the joint turning to high profile targets, those in government will be spending a lot more time protecting themselves rather than worrying about the safety of Joe and Jane tax payer on the street.

I don’t know if this is true. I was told by an attorney in Dallas who seems to have knowlege about these three killings. It was told to me that the Texas AB is about as bad as they get. Quiet bold and violent.

Why no security camera’s, motion detectors, alarms, if you’re that wary?

“Things like this aren’t supposed to happen in the country”

Ain’t that the truth! I moved from Dallas to a county adjacent to Kaufman county in the mid ‘80s. Dallas was getting crazy. I loved the fact that the biggest crime reported in our weekly newspaper was stolen bicycles and truancy. That, sadly, has been replaced with other crimes.

I don’t have a clue who might be committing these crimes against the DA & ADA. It could be the AB..or a Mexican cartel. Heck, it might be local drug dealers.

Whatever it turns out to be...I agree with you, it’s darn scary.

Because the drug traffickers don't want the spotlight turned on weak border security. They have been very circumspect about acting directly in the US. Murders they have arranged have often been done by U.S> citizens who are border area Mexican descent. Everyone hates the Aryan Brotherhood so they make great scapegoats . If the killers are in anyway AB connected there will be an orgy of media squealing about ‘white racist armed groups’.Moreover, the civilian disarmament forces will have another set of poster persons for their scheming efforts.

But not in a way that even the Lamestream State media would have to report it. This would give the really determined GOP types like Rep. Louis Gomert to raise sam hill about the issue. The DOJ and DHS would have to do some things that would at least annoy some of the traffickers for a little while. These people need huge amounts of cash all the time, so even a relatively small bump in their revenues can be bad news. Also, you would be amazed how little the border and illegal immigration problem resonates with ‘educated’ professional and upper middle class voters. I have heard these people complaining about how ‘bad’ trying to stop poor people trying to make a better life is complete with the requisite “We are a nation of immigrants.” mantra.

Maybe it was this guy or his buddies?

In May 2012, North East Texas Tactical was attacked by the anti-gunners and anti-patriots. The Kaufman County DA at the time made it a personal goal to keep me from opening. As a 12 year veteran of both wars and a law abiding citizen I have followed every letter of every law in the development of this range. I have shown that I am willing to, and have, gone above and beyond what a normal range owner would do.

When I returned home from Afghanistan in April of 2012 the DA at the time welcomed me home with a restraining order preventing the operation of the range. Now mind you this is a PRIVATE range open 2 days a week where I shoot and where several of my friends have shot. Thousands of rounds have been sent down range without incident. Not one law has been broken, not one ordinance violated, yet there was very strong push back from the DA on account of one neighbor who does not even live near the firing line. There is no huge public outcry for shutting down this range, just one guy. Although the Kaufman County DA was tragically killed recently, we have no reason to believe the pressure from the neighbor will cease.

The case has made its way up to the appellate courts in Dallas and the dismissed it without reaching the merits. That means we have to go to trial in September, then if we need to back to the appeals court. Thanks to all of you who donated to the cause, I was able to retain the best possible attorney for this case. He wrote S.B. 766 and knows it upside down and backwards. We are and have always been operating well within the law and our constitutional rights. We are praying for a swift resolution to all of this madness. Keep NETT in your thoughts and prayers and we will keep plugging along.

Kaufman County District Attorney Mike McLelland took no chances after one of his assistant prosecutors was assassinated two months ago. McLelland said he carried a gun everywhere he went and took extra care when answering the door at his home.

Kaufman County District Attorney Mike McLelland:

“I’m ahead of everybody else because, basically, I’m a soldier,” the 23-year Army veteran boasted in an interview less than two weeks ago.

No offense, but you would make a lousy detective. Don’t you think this guy would be one of the first ones looked at and cleared? Anyway, I heard an interview with this guy on a radio gun show, and he just calmly explained that he wants to keep his range open and is taking all legal avenues to do so. People edit blog postings all the time. Who wouldn’t especially with the character assassination that takes place online and in the media.

Sounds like you have a plan and this is good. I have a one, two, and three plan. If first two are defeated then I, like you, go to plan three. Texans may want a one, two, three, and four plan. Texas is more dangerous than I thought yesterday. If you are not in Texas, a one, two, three plan is perhaps okay for the moment. What bothers me most is this man was LE or affiliated with LE and should have had at a minimum of a one, two and three plan. Makes me wonder if he was setup with a phone call ... and he thought the arriving person was a friendly if the door was not kicked in.

IF Texas were to secede, there’s no rational basis for ASSUMING it would require aircraft carriers, cruise missles etc in order to survive. What it would clearly do is assess its security needs and act accordingly.

Is it your assumption, bd45, that whatever was left of the United States’ military at that point, would sit idly by while a foreign power attacked Texas within its state borders and lift not a finger in reaction? And I mean not a small fracas or guerilla war but using massive armaments such as missles and nukes, etc to attack the same land mass that is shared by the United States and Texas, and lift not a finger in reaction? Assuming it still had the armaments to react?

If you assume that, just know that it isn’t a realistic assumption. Whatever was left of the U.S. military would have a burning self-interest in reacting to a massive, dangerous attack on a seceded TX by a foreign power.

Or, I’m wondering, do you assume that the U.S., itself, would attack TX using missles, nukes, aircraft carriers, etc. ??

Riiiiight...
