The 47-Year-Old was Sentenced to Die Nearly Two Decades Ago for His Role in the State's Biggest Prison Break, Followed by a Crime Spree and the Slaying of a Suburban Dallas Policeman

The 47-Year-Old was sentenced to die nearly two decades ago for his role in the state's biggest prison break, a carefully plotted scheme followed by a crime spree and the slaying of a suburban Dallas police officer.

A day after suing the Board of Pardons and Paroles, Texas death row prisoner Joseph Garcia lost his long-shot bid for clemency when the seven-member board denied him a favorable recommendation to ...
I remember this incident as if it had happened yesterday.

The Texas Seven was a group of prisoners who escaped from the John B. Connally Unit near Kenedy, Texas, on December 13, 2000.They were apprehended a little more than a month later, on January 21–23, 2001, as a direct result of the television show America's Most Wanted
The gang ran over the victim in the parking lot.

What had begun as a suspicious circumstance call turned out to be a robbery-in-progress committed by seven dangerous and violent escaped prisoners (known as the Texas 7) from the Texas Department of Corrections Facility in Huntsville, Texas, earlier that month.
"He was the kind of father that all the kids in our neighborhood wanted to be around. The love and relationship between Aubrey and Andrew is indescribable. It was a relationship that most parents could only dream of having. The 9-year-old little boy was Aubrey's pride and joy. They were "buddies". It breaks my heart that Aubrey will never get to see Andrew grow up to be the man he always taught him to be. Aubrey was the kind of son who worried about his mom living alone. He always looked out for her and made sure she was safe. He truly loved her from the bottom of his heart. Aubrey was a loving and devoted husband. He was my best friend. He made me laugh when nobody else could. His face would "light up" every time I walked into a room. Never again will I hear him come home and yell throughout the house... "Where's my girl?" Never again will I feel his big arms wrapped around me and his kiss on my forehead."

Some of them have already been executed and I think some have died in prison. They all need to be executed, what remains of the seven.

GRA:Update:TV news reported 3 shot and 1 dead at one location(one "deceased" was revived).Then a few blocks away,another woman was found dead in her house,late this afternoon.GRPD saying "the deaths are not connected."(Really?)
This is all original ghetto area on the SE side of GR.At least 60-70% black and some Mex as well.
It's been relatively quiet,after a violent and deadly first 3 months,in which 8 murders were committed--only a couple murders since then,until today.
The suspects are believed to be holed up in a neighborhood house,where SWAT and most of the city police are gathered.The rest of GR police are at the second location.Further details,if interesting.

Quick update:Police had a news conference--correcting the report of the number of dead at the first location.Initially a report of 3 shot and 2 dead.Actually 3 were shot,but no fatalities (one in critical condition).
At the second crime scene,a woman IS dead,in what cops say is "the result of a violent crime."Police are massed in that area about 5 blocks away.Police continue to insist,though 911 calls were received moments apart,the two crime scenes are not related.

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. Mich. (WOOD) — A father and his teen son were wounded when shots were fired on Grand Rapids' southeast side Sunday afternoon.

The shooting happened around 4:20 p.m. along Watkins Street at Fuller Avenue SE, near Martin Luther King Jr. Park.

The Grand Rapids Police Department said a 17-year-old and 48-year-old man were injured. Both were hospitalized and are expected to survive. A neighbor told 24 Hour News 8 he saw one of the victims had a wound to his arm.

Police have not released the victims' names.

GRPD initially said two people were killed, then revised that to say only one was dead. Then, during a press conference shortly after 6:30 p.m., Sgt. Cathy Williams said no one was killed.

"No one has died here today," she said.

She said the confusion was the result of multiple 911 calls that came in within a few minutes reporting people had been killed and confusion about an unrelated scene at which a body was found. She apologized for releasing the incorrect information.

After the shooting, police surrounded a nearby home they believed was connected to the shooting and shut down stretches of Watkins and Fuller. They later entered the house, confirmed the shooter was not inside and started processing it for evidence.

Police said they were looking for one shooter, but they didn't have a suspect description to release. They also didn't release any information about a motive.

Anyone with information is asked to call GRPD at 616.456.3400 or Silent Observer at 616.774.2345.

Williams said detectives are "confident" the shooting is not linked to the death of woman whose body was found only a couple of blocks away in the area of Franklin Street and Dolbee Avenue SE. That death is being investigated as suspicious.
GRA:What a clusterf**k.In addition,no descriptions of the suspect are being given (though who else but black thugs would do this crime).
