Well, this is interesting.

From the San Antonio Express-News:

A Southeast Texas father accused of killing a drunk driver in a fit of rage after his two sons were fatally struck on a rural road near their home is set to have his day in court.

Jury selection in the murder trial of David Barajas was to begin Monday afternoon in Angleton….

Prosecutors face various difficulties at trial. No weapon was recovered and no witnesses have identified Barajas as the shooter.

“No witnesses have identified Barajas as the shooter.” Is thaaat right? I would be quite interested to know how many people were in the area when Jose Banda got shot. I can only imagine what they all said.

“Wha? Some dude a few feet away from me got shot after he plowed his truck into a guy getting his broken down truck off the road? And he killed that guy’s two kids? Huh. How ’bout that. Bad deal, yo. Oh, the guy who crashed the truck was drunk?! No, no. I didn’t see nothin’. Didn’t hear nothin’ either. No sirree Bob. Scout’s honor.”

    Hmm. “no witnesses have identified Barajas as the shooter” – yet the prosecutor felt there was enough evidence for a true bill? Is that prosecutor perhaps related to the drunk driving prosecutor up in Austin?

    I think it is a case of the prosecutor not being able to decline to prosecute — has to show he is “tough on crime” or not get elected again.

    That and possibly authority complex — no one should be doing anything about ‘justice’ if it ain’t the government.
