AUSTIN, TEXAS – The Texas Municipal Police Association (TMPA), the Houston Police Officers’ Union (HPOU), the Dallas Police Association (DPA) and the Texas Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) have publicly voiced our deep concern for months as officials continue to re-release persons on one or more bonds for dangerous offenses including murders, robberies, and aggravated assaults. In Houston alone, over 120 persons have been killed by defendants already out on bond. Factoring in a 50% homicide clearance rate, it goes to reason that the actual number may well be more than 240. Texas citizens are in imminent danger.

We implore our elected officials to openly urge judges to no-bond any defendant that uses a firearm during an offense while already out on one or more bonds. The complete disregard for public safety is appalling.

If public officials take heed of our plea, we are confident that the senseless acts of violence will decrease and when our courts open, we will try these defendants.

Most of these acts of violence are coming from a small percentage of the population and no-bonding them will immediately save lives.

I am 100% in favor of this. How on earth can anyone think it is OK to continue to release felons on bond? It is one thing to think about their rights, another thing entirely when the rights of the victims and their families are disregarded.
