Actions Have Consequences: Ogg Directly Responsible for HPD Officer’s Death
He pulled the trigger but she put the gun in his hands
HOUSTON TX – Houston Police Department Sergeant Harold Preston was killed in the line of duty today. As tragic as that is, his death was 100% preventable. His partner also was shot and will survive his injuries.
The suspect, Elmer Manzano, a convicted felon with multiple prior assaults on his record, was in custody just a day before this tragedy occurred.
On October 18, HPD Officers responded to a call from Mrs. Santos, stating that her ex-husband, Mr. Manzano, was at the location brandishing a gun threatening Mrs. Santos and her children.
HPD Officers took Mr. Manzano into custody that day but Kim Ogg declined to take charges, instructing the Officers to release him, leaving the gun at the scene. Had charges been accepted, Mr. Manzano might be back on the street, but his gun and ammunition would have been seized and held as evidence.
No gun would have meant no dead officer.
Today, Officers responded to another call from Mrs. Santos. Mr. Manzano answered the door firing gun shots at point blank range. The two Officers were hit.
The actions of Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg are inexcusable. While Mr. Manzano pulled the trigger, Kim Ogg put the gun in his hands. Her actions are directly responsible for the death of HPD Sergeant Preston.
The good people of Harris County mourn the tragic and senseless loss of HPD Sergeant Preston. They have an opportunity to ensure this does not happen again.
DA Ogg’s fate is in their hands. She is on the ballot today.
Vote to keep your streets, your neighborhoods, your homes, and family safe. Vote to keep the men and women of law enforcement from preventable perils. Vote to hold Kim Ogg responsible for HPD Sergeant Preston’s death.

I like Kim Ogg. I voted for Kim Ogg. But her actions, combined with those of the Democratic judges in Harris County, have led directly to increased crime and this travesty.
Vote for your life. Vote Republican.
