Brandon Bel, 17, was released from jail on no-cash bail shortly after he and two other teens were arrested for allegedly carjacking a woman at gunpoint. The Harris County District Attorney’s Office charged Bell with a misdemeanor count of criminal trespass to a motor vehicle, and he was released on his own recognizance, without paying bail. Two days later, he was accused of carjacking another vehicle, robbing and beating a priest, robbing a woman, and shooting a police officer.

“We cannot put people’s lives at risk because of this love affair with restorative justice,” Chief Art Acevedo declared.

Houston, TX – Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo blasted “restorative justice” and demanded that judges “stop pussyfooting with violent criminals” during a press conference on Monday.

Chief Acevedo aired his frustration with the court system just days after news broke that the 17-year-old gunman who repeatedly shot a Houston police officer during a violent crime spree on Sept. 12 had recently been released from jail on his own recognizance.


“We need the courts to do their job, and to stop pussyfooting with violent criminals! Period!” he said angrily. “So these judges…every time somebody’s getting injured, I’m gonna call them out by name!”

Chief Acevedo said that it is important for voters to be informed about what those on the bench are doing in the courtroom.

“They’re either here to stop violent crime, or they can go somewhere else where violent crime doesn’t matter!” he railed.

He also blasted the obsessive focus on “restorative justice,” and said such practices have been placing citizens in harm’s way.

“We cannot put people’s lives at risk because of this love affair with restorative justice,” Chief Acevedo declared. “It’s not about coddling violent criminals!”

Offenders are generally released from custody by the court so quickly, witnesses and victims are too afraid to testify against them, the chief noted.


“If you lived in a high crime area and you knew that these judges were gonna let a violent criminal go in one door and within a matter of hours or a day or two get out on a low bond, do you want to testify against them?” he asked reporters.

Brandon Bell, 17, was released from jail on a no-cost “personal bond” shortly after he and two other teens were arrested for allegedly carjacking a woman at gunpoint as she was passing out campaign fliers on Sept. 2, KPRC reported.

A prior injunction blocked the mandate in January 2022, only a few months after Biden issued the order, but nearly 98% of covered employees had already been vaccinated. Opponents of the policy said it was an encroachment on federal workers’ lives that neither the Constitution nor federal statutes authorize.

Here’s the deal on the rise of youth crime nationwide. Under the obama administration, eric holder’s justice department authorized large stipends to cities that showed a reduction in their minority youth crime rate. What they did to meet the criteria was to simply not process all the reports of juvenile crime.
