HOUSTON, TX – Certain members of the Houston Police Department could soon learn the meaning of the saying ‘What goes around, comes around.’

Washington got wind of HPD’s recent behavior and the U.S. Department of Justice is now investigating 6 specific cases. Of course, the beating of Chad Holley is on the list. Along with the killing of Brain Claunch, the 45-year-old amputee who was shot by an officer while allegedly was waving around a pen.

Who knows if the federal government will find any wrong doing by our police department, but regardless, there is disconnect between the police department and some Houstonians and it’s comforting to know something is being done about it.
