Texas Association of Specialty Courts
According to an article in the Texas Tribune, beginning September 1st., 2017, first responders can avoid prosecution by having ‘first responder specialty courts’ hear their cases. (“public safety employee” means a peace officer, firefighter, detent...)

According to the Texas Legislature Online, not a single politician thought letting police officers avoid prosecution was a bad idea. Gov. Greg Abbott signed the bill in June, along with a handful of other bills that focused on helping police and first responders.

She’s right, this will have unintended consequences.
Officers need their friend(s) to vouch for them to avoid prosecution
For years, states have used ‘specialty courts’ to deal with things like probation issues and drug treatment concerns. But creating a ‘first responder specialty court’ can and will be abused.
Texas, is the first state to create a ‘first responder specialty court’ designed to help police officers avoid prosecution!
For a police officer to avoid prosecution, he or she will need to get their fellow officers to vouch that they need to be in the ‘safety treatment program’. And just like some perverted magic act, all of the officer’s problems will disappear.
“Proof of matters described by Subsection (a) may be submitted to the court in which the criminal case is pending in any form the court determines to be appropriate, including medical records or testimony or affidavits of other public safety employees.”
According to the Texas Tribune, judge Susan Brown said she is aware of one case that fits the criteria for the ‘first responder specialty courts’.
Cops entering the ‘safety employee treatment program’ will have their criminal charges dismissed
Police officers who’ve committed a crime will receive a get out of jail free card, simply by requesting a ‘first responder specialty court’ hearing and paying up to $1,0000 to enter into the ‘safety treatment program’.
Once a police officer has entered the ‘safety treatment program’ all charges against them will be dismissed.
“If a defendant successfully completes a public safety employee treatment court program, after notice to the attorney representing the state and a hearing in the public safety employees treatment court at which that court determines that a dismissal is in the best interest of justice, the court in which the criminal case is pending shall dismiss the case against the defendant.”
To summarize, all a police officer has to do is claim they suffered from a brain injury, mental illness, or mental disorder, including post-traumatic stress disorder while on duty and any crime they committed will be dismissed.
Do you think the public would ever be able to claim ‘post-traumatic police syndrome’ after being wrongfully arrested, beaten or targeted by the police?
Sadly, this isn’t the first instance of police avoiding watch lists or prosecution. Four months ago, I wrote a story revealing that it appears police are also exempt from being placed on watch lists.
“It is very telling” that a Hollywood police officer arrested for domestic violence in December “was not placed on the watch list and not sent the target letter. This is either evidence of favoritism and a double standard’…” Public Defender Howard Finkelstein said.
If you thought it was hard finding out if a police officer has ever had disciplinary problems, it is about to get a whole lot worse. Now courts can magically dismiss all charges against the officer and the public will never be the wiser.
To say that ‘specialty first responder courts’ are a bad idea would be an understatement. If anyone ever doubts that police are treated differently, just ask them to explain what’s happening in Texas.
It appears that ‘specialty courts’ are expanding across the country, how long before other states create their own ‘first responder specialty courts’? (A Google search for ‘specialty courts are expanding ‘ returned over 100,000 hits.)
This will be America's Reality, when things get really tight?A lot of veterans from the Afghan and Iraqi wars will be our Police, and they have been desensitized to citizen/human liberties.THEY are not hiding anything anymore, it is right in our faces and Americans are living in Denial, the Eighth Deadly Sin.
