An eighty year old woman described as a ‘perfect grandmother’ by her family was stabbed and killed by a lifelong criminal on Saturday in Houston. 38-year old Randy Lewis, who has been arrested dozens of times in his life, may have been released from a metal health facility as part of a coronavirus jailbreak.
Rosalie Cook was attacked by Lewis walking to her car after shopping at a Houston Walgreens. A responding officer who arrived at the scene found Lewis looting through Cook’s car, and when he was attacked by Lewis in turn, shot him twice, fatally.
Lewis has been arrested 67 times throughout his life. Court records indicate that he was set free on a waived bond on April 30, having been detained at a mental health facility at the order of a judge pending the resolution of his case. It’s very possible considering the timing of his release from custody that the career criminal was released from the facility through a coronavirus jailbreak. County jails nationwide have released a third of their inmates on account of the pandemic, and in some cases more.
Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo described the senselessness of the murder. “This is tragic, but the most tragedy here is that a woman has died from a guy who attacked her for no other reason other than to steal from her and carjack her.”

A Houston police officer’s union pointed to the release of Lewis as a legal mistake with grave consequences in a tweet regarding the murder.

If Lewis was released from mental health custody as a result of a coronavirus jailbreak, he’s merely the latest serious criminal to use his get-out-of-jail free card to commit more crimes.
U.S. Law Enforcement Bust 27 People Connected to Mexican Sinaloa Cartel
Over two dozen people were arrested on drug charges in connection to a Mexican cartel smuggling cocaine into the U.S. Following a two-year investigation, 27 people were arrested through Operation Tripwire, an investigation effort U.S. officials have been working on featuring members of the Sinaloa Cartel.
The trafficking network went from Los Angeles, California to Tucson, Arizona and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where cocaine originating from Mexico was smuggled stateside. The United States Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, Scott Brady declared “this is a large organization that was trafficking hundreds of kilograms of cocaine throughout the country and has direct ties to the Sinaloa cartel in Mexico.”
U.S. authorities recounted that the investigations started after an agent in Pittsburgh was able to identify an address that received large quantities of suspicious-looking packages coming from California. Since then, agents started to do investigation on other members of the network across the U.S.
Across the span of seven months, authorities were able to intercept U.S. calls made by some of the alleged traffickers with Sinaloa carte leaders in Mexico. On September 9, 2020, 27 were arrested in Arizona, California, and Pennsylvania.
According to American authorities, $1.3 million in cash and over 140 kilograms of cocaine were seized. The aforementioned people arrested are now facing a prison sentence of between 10 years and life in prison.
The border situation is no joke. Prior administrations have largely neglected the issue and have allowed for unprecedented levels of illegal immigration and drug trafficking to cross the U.S. border.
In a prior instance, BLP reported on how Mexico is a failed state that cannot maintain public order and is largely being pushed around by cartels. Due to its proximity to the U.S., Mexico’s problems will likely spillover stateside.
This is why border security is crucial. Thankfully, the U.S. has a president in Donald Trump that gets the memo. He’ll still need help from Congress, however,
That’s why it’s crucial that America First Republicans have strong showings at all branches of government in 2020.
