American Sniper Trial Ends With Guilty Verdict

27 Feb

February 24, 2015 was a day of closer for two American families. The Kyle and Littlefield families were both present in the trial of Eddie Ray Routh for the murder of Chris Kyle and Chad Littlefield. Kyle’s widow, Taya, gave her testimony of her late husband as well as Littlefield’s mother, Judy.

Both families were relieved as the verdict was read, but the Littlefield family directed one last word before the defendant left the court room. Littlefield’s stepbrother, Jerry Richardson, spoke directly to Routh saying “Because of you and your irresponsible choices, we lost a great son, brother, father, husband and uncle. Your inhumanity and disregard for life have put you in a world [from which] you’ll never escape.”

Routh was found guilty of capital murder of Christ Kyle and Chad Littlefield. Routh has been sentenced to life in prison with no opportunity for parole.

23 Feb

DFW NORML has chartered a bus and will send 50 people to Austin to help those in need.

“Due to the overwhelming success of last week’s Citizen Lobby Day, the DFW NORML Board of Directors has decided that one of the best ways we can use chapter funds, especially while our lawmakers are in session is by sending advocates to the capitol as often as possible,” says the group’s executive director Shaun McAlister. “To that end we’re excited to offer free seats on our charter bus for up to 50 patients, parents, caregivers, veterans and medical necessity advocates from north Texas to ensure that Austin understands how badly Texans need to get medical marijuana right the first time.”
