Chad Holley and the Houston 'Stab Step'
Scott Greenfield at Simple Justice explores the evasive legal lexicon evoked by Houston police officers to minimize culpability for the videotaped beating of 15-year old burglary suspect Chad Holley three years ago. Read the whole thing. Grits has not followed the case closely due to my own limited resources and the fact that the Houston media have covered it pretty thoroughly. (I see this blog's role as plugging gaps, not usurping the functions of the MSM.) But I couldn't resist sharing Greenfield's artful send-up of HPD's self-serving techno-speak.
