I've lived in or adjacent to Harris County my entire life, and have been in the Criminal Justice system (on the right side of the grey bars) for a portion of it. My previous statement stands, whether or not these guys SHOULD have pursued the criminal. They'll sooner get a key to the city than a grand jury indictment. There's an overall dim view of violent criminals around here.
