The Dallas police department and the FBI are currently investigating the murder of a security guard who was shot and killed as a robbery occurred at a credit union in Cockrell Hill on the morning of September 14, 2020.
According to an NBC DFW report, police claimed that witnesses recounted an incident where a security officer was on duty at a ATM outside the Neighborhood Credit Union. During the security guard’s shift, a man armed with a rifle approached him at around 8:50 AM. Police claimed that the armed man “demanded property.”
The armed assailant then shot the security guard, Jose Montes, at least one time.
A woman working in the shopping center described the sound of the gunshot as a “big pop, kind of like a firecracker.”
The woman, who requested anonymity, was preparing to open up the store where she’s employed when she heard the sound of gunfire.
“I looked out the window to see what was going on. I saw an individual on his knees with his hands up and his head down and then I saw another individual laying on the ground,” the woman recalled. “I saw a guy backing away from the armored vehicle and into a four-door sedan.”
She then called the police. In the meantime, she and other individuals attempted to help Montes.
“We were just trying to as best we could to render aid, and make sure he was as comfortable as possible,” the shopping center worker said. “One of the girls from the dentist’s office offered some smelling salt to help keep him conscious. I was still on the phone with 911 operator asking if there’s anything I can do, try to keep everyone back, make sure they had enough room to work.“
According to Dallas police Sergeant Warren Mitchell, officers arrived at the scene and found a man wearing a security officer’s uniform lying on the ground with a gunshot wound.
Montes later died at a nearby hospital that he was taken to.
Mitchell stated that in the aftermath of the shooting the armed robber was caught loading a duffel bag into a sedan with a woman at the steering wheel. Police are not sure about the amount of money in the bags.
“I didn’t see the driver, I did see the individual get into the car, throw the bag and get into the back of the car and drove off,” the witness recounted.
“I am shocked and deeply saddened by the loss of an innocent man’s life this morning and I am praying for his family. Our team is doing everything we can to assist law enforcement in identifying the shooter,” Chet Kimmell, Neighborhood Credit Union president and CEO declared in a statement.
Although Texas has not witnessed the type of left-wing insurrectionism that has plagued states like Oregon, the crime wave that is sweeping across the nation is gradually making its way to the Lone Star State.
Texans thankfully have solid gun laws that allow them to defend themselves against criminals. However, the state cannot afford to fall to the anti-police radicalism that is engulfing multitudes of urban centers across the country. Law and order must reign supreme and police functions cannot be gutted just to satisfy the caprices of radical leftists.
Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign
The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.
At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.
Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.
“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.
I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.
“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:
This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.
I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.
Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.
“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”
“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.
“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.
Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.
A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.
Election Day will be on September 29.
Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
