Anti-Gun Nut Art Acevedo Appointed Houston Police Chief

Mayor Sylvester Turner must really NOT want his pension legislation to succeed in Austin. While conservatives in Austin will be so glad to see Acevedo gone, his arrival here is a nightmare for every second amendment supporter in Houston.

Certainly the HPOU hall is abuzz with the news. There is no way that Ray Hunt and the HPOU leadership can be happy with this appointment.

Acevedo was docked five days’ pay for insubordination by Austin City Manager Marc Ott. The suspension was based on Acevedo’s public discussion of a controversial police shooting.

Big Jolly readers need to know that Acevedo is a BIG sanctuary city proponent.

“High-profile city police chiefs, including San Antonio’s Bill McManus and Austin’s Art Acevedo, have also said checking immigration status hinders policing strategies, sometimes by making members of communities with high numbers of undocumented immigrants less likely to report crimes.”

Art Acevedo is anti-gun.  Acevedo testified against the campus carry bill and is an open critic to the open carry law.

“Now we’re going to create an environment where people are lawfully allowed to carry firearms on campus,” he said. “We’re potentially turning sexual assault victims – who we have a lot of resources to help these young people…through our victims services and so forth – into potentially murder victims.”

While I wholly disagreed with the Martha Montalvo selection as interim police chief, it is difficult to think of a worse pick than Acevedo.  This makes the need for a well-qualified, conservative US Attorney for the Houston area even more important. Geez.
