The job you're hired to do

Greg, from Rhymes with Right, does a very good job picking apart this Chron.com article by Anita Hassan regarding the back-log of processed warrants at the Harris County Sheriff's office.

While the Chron.com piece offers zero feedback from anyone other than the HCSO spin-doctors (Garcia himself), Greg provides some much needed context and a little history lesson in Garcia's hiring practices.

Go-read both pieces, and then steel yourself for the wave of InterLeft spin that's sure to come.

I've no argument that former Sheriff Tommy Thomas had to go, but the main plank of Garcia's campaign was on his competence. The question that has to be asked is: "If Garcia is turning up incompetent then does he deserve to be re-elected?"
