DA Watkins' SUV Stolen: Will He 'Hug a Thug?' Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Sun, Oct 2, 2011, 05:14 am

Since Craig Watkins assumed office as the Dallas County District Attorney, crime in the County has grown so rampant that thieves are even stealing the SUV of Dallas County’s leading prosecutor. Critics blame Mr. Watkins ‘hug a thug’ prosecution style for the high crime rate.

According to the San Antonio Express-News, “Dallas County’s top prosecutor has become the victim of a crime. Authorities in DeSoto, where District Attorney Craig Watkins lives, say he called 911 about 7:30 a.m. Friday after discovering his Mercedes G-Wagen had been taken from his home.

The gate to a security fence had been smashed. Apparently, D.A. Watkins made it easy for the car thieves since he left the keys in the car and in the garage. He woke up the next morning to see the garage door open, but didn’t hear a sound the night before.

As reported by the San Antonio Express-News, “Watkins said neither he nor his wife heard anything because their bedroom is on the opposite side of the house. He said he is confident DeSoto police will catch whoever is responsible for the theft.”

High crime rate?

The crime rate in Dallas has fallen every year Watkins has been in office. What Republican DA ever claimed that honor?

Craig's wife told him to close the garage door. Always do what you your wife says.
