End his ass with no remorse. Especially if it's tanned. Then overkill the bastard.

Regarding other tanned people, seems that the leftard SCOTUS judges want to give them US citizen rights

He may have a grudge against some docs there who might have screwed up his surgery or a family member. That's the usual thing.

But one thing for sure, he still has his trigger finger in good condition.

Hope no innocent bystanders are hurt.

Actually, Ben Taub is "the" hospital for gun shot and knife wounds. I guess if you're going to get shot....... you're already right where you need to be.

He was taken to Ben Taub, where he later died.

Said by everyone who has ever been on local TV news in Houston.

gunshot victims associate themselves with others who shoot people ... otherwise they likely wouldn't have been their families go visit them who also likely associate themselves in a similar way. ...

Well the FAKE NEWS is not just CNN but the entire mainstream media.

“We have not found the suspect, and we have not found evidence of an active shooter,” Chief Acevedo told reporters at 3:15pm local time.

This could be a hoax. Like another worldwide major story:

If any POS deserves to catch one, its that sack of shit liberal Art Asseveda.

That cocksucker brought his Socialist montra from CA to Austin and now Houston. Wish he would go back to Cuba and die a corrupt death like he should.

At Ben Taub?

If there IS something going on at Ben Taub (again) I'd expect it to be a gang banger threatening to finish some business with another gang banger.

The folks in the ER are probably rather familiar with evidence bags and proper procedure.

Ben Taub...1 of 3 level one trauma centers in Houston area...victims don't have far to go...

Actually, Ben Taub and Memorial Hermann (right next door) are the only two in Houston. The other one is UT Medical Branch in Galveston.

Unless something has changed since I worked in the NeuroTrauma ICU at Memorial Hermann, serious trauma patients picked up inside the 610 loop go by ground to Ben Taub. If they are outside the loop, they are taken by helicopter to Memorial Hermann. It works out pretty well. Studies have been done on the times involved.

I guess it could be one of us RedNecks but we usually shoot at cans until we are needed.

I love shooting 'cans....Mexicans, Jamaicans, Puerto Ricans....

Leave the poor Jamaicans out of this, the others are far worse!

With the Texas CC laws the shooter should have been taken down in seconds.

Ben Taub is the large county indigent  hospital in the middle of Houston Medical Center.  Definitely a "no-carry" gun free zone.

Muslims incriminate themselves just fine, who needs hope?  Almost at 100% for terrorist attacks by Muzzies in US, Canada, and Europe.  That's some statistics right there.

My mother always told me, growing up in Houston, if I was ever injured to request Ben Taub. Glad it wasnt today.

DosZap's picture

Most Dr's the BEST are all Jewish.

NAVIGATOR0832's picture

Definitely the best place to go if you have a gun shot wound or stabbing, as they have the most experience with the gun and knife club.  If you have MVA blunt type trauma, Memorial Hermann Medical Center is the best.  

Son of Loki's picture

For multiple trauma it's one of the best but for elective stuff I'd choose Methodist or Memeorial.

My mother always told us to put on clean underwear IN CASE we had to go to the hospital.  Didn't us want to embarass the family and all with dirty shorts.  :-)
