Houston Narcotics Cop Who Instigated a Deadly Drug Raid Is Charged With Murder

Today Harris County, Texas, District Attorney Kim Ogg announced that Gerald Goines, the narcotics officer who instigated the disastrous January 28 drug raid that killed a middle-aged couple, has been charged with two counts of felony murder. The raid, which discovered no evidence of drug dealing, was based on an affidavit by Goines that cited a “controlled buy” of heroin that apparently never happened.

Unbelievable! I’ve been following this story since it happened and I honestly thought those assholes were going to get away with murder. I just hope it doesn’t stop here, that the rest of the gunmen are brought up on charges as well.

    I imagine this is not the only time he lied on a affadavit. Probably some innocent in jail just waiting on him now. I hope.

  2. Padawan says:

    The two officers were charged AFTER thry retired and started collecting a pension. Coincidence? I think not…

  3. Timing, I wrote this for Instapundit OT last night.

    We need something like the Doomsday clock for Police corruption.
    What percentage of our police has been hopelessly corrupted by lack of accountability, willingness to take what they want from the public without due process and immunity from prosecution after murdering innocent citizens.

    I’d put it at an hour to midnight.

      Google up something like “tulia texas scandal” or tulia texas tom coleman” but make sure you have a fire extinguisher handy first because even though nobody died, what that a$$hole and all them sumbitches he calls friends did out there will set your hair on fire.

  4. Elmo says:

    Did you hear the one about the San Bernardino deputy sheriff that claimed to have been sniped at and wasn’t?

    If you haven’t, you will. But at least his lie didn’t get anybody killed.

  5. brent says:

    theres all types in every group that you care to name. cops are no different.
    that said, this cop should be hung the same as anyone else that causes an innocent’s death.

    Someday, some scum bag storm troopers gonna get their comeuppance when they do a home invasion on someone who prepared for just that eventuality. And I will cheer when it happens. They have gotten used to kicking doors and abusing people, sometimes people who have done nothing to deserve so much as a knock on the door and questioning. Like the baby who suffered severe burns when a JBT lobbed a flash bang into her crib. Or the guy who was shot to death while lying on his face in a hotel hallway. And many more…

    Now, they are used to submission and doing as they please. Typical bully behavior. Invincible until that one kid smashes their face for them. Was interesting to watch them with their stepping and fetching when that dindu in Philly fired blindly through a ceiling and connected with a couple of them. Same thing happened here a few years ago when they went to raid a meth cook and he fired a couple rounds out of an sks through the roof. Nobody injured, but they were talking about calling out the national guard when they finally realized he had run out the back door in the initial confusion and gotten away. Just wait until some guy stops the charge and follows up on these knuckleheads, and kills some or all of them. Oh, the weeping and wailing will be epic…

    These boys need to go back to knocking on the door and talking in a normal fashion before more folks come to the conclusion that there is no point cutting them any more slack than any other home invasion crew…

    • Larry says:

      Come on, get real. When that happens, the call will be for even more force, used pre-emptively. Up to and including bombing, no doubt. And when it happens, it will likely be someone who should have been raised, not some innocent. That won’t help scale back these sort of things.

    • Less… home invasion crew is careful not to break the things they are there to steal. And they won’t shoot your dog.

    • Lineman says:

      That’s why you should make it as hard as possible for any thugs to invade your house which is always a work in progress and suggestions are always welcome…First is live in the country it’s always harder for thugs to case out your place without you noticing something isn’t right, two know your Sheriff and have a good relationship with him and if he is an ass help his opponent when it’s election time, three have many early warning systems in place, 4 make it hard for them to get to your front door by having a gate or two they have to get through before they can get to your front door, 5 have it where they have to go through two doors to gain entry, 6 have dogs that will protect not just provide warning, 7 make sure they are in a funnel when they enter and remember their tactics so you can counter them, 8 have the armament to repel them, and last but not least have friends that are close and can come in a hurry…

      • Wirecutter says:

        Truer words never spoken.
        As far as early warning systems, a driveway alarm is a good idea as well as the dogs you mentioned.

        • Lineman says:

          Yes indeed Brother…Driveway alarms, cameras with motion detection, seismic detectors, Dogs in and outside the house, motion lighting, and that’s just now in stable times we won’t even delve into SHTF times…

      • FaCubeItches says:

        Geese make pretty good guards, too. Noisy enough to wake the dead, and mean as hell. They don’t do as much damage as dogs can, though.

      • the other other Andrew says:

        It’s not that hard to fortify your doors, as long as they aren’t glass doors.

        And burglar bars on the window give you something to hook storm shutters to.

        Lots of ways to fortify the homestead.

          on the other hand, there is nothing in my home I can’t live without. most municipalities have ordinances proscribing “man traps”. I tend to think of them as thief anxiety relief devices.
          the city i live in will not allow the PD to pursue a burglary past getting serial numbers of the stolen goods, if any, unless there is a victim injury. they probably won’t take the dye packs I have in some of the more obvious access routes to my property. the less obvious access points have somewhat more stringent protective systems.
          rule thirty six B: never fuch with an old man with a DD-214 in his files and a sense of humor.

    • Fairplayjeepguy says:

      Wholeheartedly agreed! Modern “law enforcement” needs to be altered, with blood if necessary, immediately in order to prevent the wholesale spilling of blood that will inevitably come if the status quo is maintained.
      Worshipping LEOs with blue line flags and blue lives matter stickers is the most moral masturbatory, virtue signaling bullshit to come out of “conservative” suburbia since the twats at Susan G. Komen were found out to be a bunch of greedy, thieving hypocrites.
      Again and again we must be reminded that for the most part, cops are NOT your friends, and cooperating with them will only bring you more grief than doing the minimum required to get them to go on their way.

    • Jeremy says:

      Scott Peterson, Topeka Kansas. Shot dead when the thugs of scat kicked in a door. They nearly killed the guy and planted evidence

    • Bad_Brad says:

      It’s already happened. Several times. Usually involves the wrong house. And every time it’s happened, that I can find, the home owners been found innocent.
      You can find several other examples, but here’s one.

    • Old Gray Wolf says:

      Purpose served. Start an interesting and informative conversation for the less aware. Thanks, guys.

  7. FaCubeItches says:

    If memory serves, Indiana specifically changed their laws to deal with stuff like this. Cops hit the wrong house, homeowner dropped a cop, and got convicted of either murder or manslaughter. Appeals followed, and as a result, the state legislature passed a law that protected citizens who used force against an improper raid.

  8. J Pritchett says:

    They can indict, charge, and bluster all they want. The victims of this POS false testimony are still DEAD.

  9. BillDave says:

    All under Art Acevedos watch, he is a POS!

  10. Dan says:

    A show trial….a spectacle put on to fool the citizenry into believing the states bullshit about ‘equal justice’. Either the accused will have a ‘bench trial’ before a VERY friendly judge OR the DA will turn a blind eye as the defense packs the jury with bootlickers guaranteed to acquit. And NOBODY else involved is EVER going to be charged for this crime. The scapegoats have been chosen and the charade begun. Odds of acquittal are better than 99%. And the odds of the accused suing and getting their old job back after acquittal are pretty damn high also,

Play nice.
