But now a suspect has been found who has been alleged of the murder, and it's not what the news networks so eagerly reported (Daily Mail).
A former justice of the peace is reportedly set to be charged with three murders, including a former Texas district attorney and assistant DA, after he was arrested on Saturday.One of those who waved the "white supremacist" red flag was none other than MSNBC's resident lush, Chris Matthews (The Other McCain).
Eric Williams, 46, has been arrested by authorities investigating the murders of District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife, Cynthia, last month - and the fatal shooting of ADA Mark Hasse in late January.
Williams was booked into Kaufman County Jail early Saturday morning for making terroristic threats and 'insufficient bond.' He is being held on a $3million bond
Williams was convicted in March 2012 by the district attorney's office of burglary of a building and theft by a public servant, the station reported.
Surveillance cameras caught Williams taking computer equipment from a county building. As part of his appeal, Williams claimed McClelland and Hasse didn't like him.
He was sentenced to two months of probation and lost his justice of the peace position as a result of the conviction.
Federal and local authorities searched Williams' home Friday as part of an investigation into the McLellands' deaths.
You can call Chris Matthews anything you want — “dimwitted political hack” would be entirely appropriate — but please don’t insult an entire profession by calling Chris Matthews a “journalist.”
On March 30, Kaufman County, Texas, district attorney Mike McLelland and his wife were shot to death at their home. Five days later, Chris Matthews invited Mark Potok of the Southern Poverty Law Center onto MSNBC to promote speculation that McLelland’s murder was committed by the Aryan Brotherhood prison gang.
In other words, the important thing about this crime — the thing that made it worth eight minutes of national network air time — was that it gave Chris Matthews a chance to stoke the paranoia of MSNBC viewers with the bogeyman specter of dangerously violent racists who (as all MSNBC viewers know) are the core constituency of the Republican Party.The SPLC and Potok have been playing the race card with the speed of a Vegas blackjack dealer against anyone who dares criticize Dear Leader Obama. They were the ones whose ambulance-chasing has been sourced by Homeland InSecurity, several times, including in 2009 with labeling Tea Party members and veterans as potential domestic terrorists. Potok and the SPLC's mislabeling conservative groups as "hate groups" also inspired a Herndon, VA man to try and kill employees of the Family Research Council in DC last summer, but that attack was thwarted by a security guard, who was wounded in the process.
And just like the deceased census volunteer in 2009, whose suicide was alleged to have been the work of "anti-government" (read: conservatives) members by liberal news outlets, Chrissy boy probably won't find the time to correct the record.
