Nearly $3 Million Spent on Botched Houston Police Raid

Texas Scorecard by  Charles Blain January 25, 2024

The Houston City Council approved another $1.7 million for legal fees related to the botched Harding Street Raid that led to the murders of Dennis Tuttle and Rhogena Nicholas.

This week the Houston city council approved another $1.7 million for legal fees related to the botched Harding Street Raid. The civil rights lawsuit stems from the 2019 narcotics raid that led to the murders of Dennis Tuttle and Rhogena Nicholas.

The raid was based on an alleged lie from Officer Gerald Goines, the lead narcotics officer on the raid.

In order to obtain a warrant, Goines claimed that a drug informant purchased drugs from Nicholas and Tuttle at their home. Another officer, Steven Bryant, pleaded guilty to falsifying a government document; he edited a report to cover for Goines.

Based on Goines’ claim and the department’s cover up, a dozen officers entered the home with a no-knock warrant and killed the couple and their dog. No drugs were found in the home. A subsequent investigation found that the premise was untrue and the residents didn’t sell drugs.

  • I was a "conspiracy theorist". Now I'm just right.

Wrong house. Two people and their dog killed because someone screwed up, and then there's the whitewash...

Seventeen Techniques for Truth Suppression

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.
