Leading Off (11/26/14)

Why is it that we write about child porn every week? Get it together, people.

Dallas ISD Administrator “Fear[ed] Coming in Close Contact” With Bernadette Nutall: That’s the gist of a complaint filed by the HR administrator Tonya Sadler Grayson, which the DMN got its hands on. Nutall denied the “unpleasant” interactions with Grayson; DISD has hired former U.S. Attorney Paul Coggins to look into the complaints. I don’t know, guys, this just doesn’t sound like the Bernadette I know.

Fort Worth Policer Officer Helps Deliver Baby on Highway: First of all, this happened on November 15. Someone sat on this bundle of news joy for 10 days. Fort Worth Officer Robert Scott was helping with traffic control when a man ran to his patrol car seeking help. Scott ran to the car, saw the man’s daughter in labor, and promptly helped deliver the baby. In a past life, Scott was an EMT.

“Dallas Man Who Made Fake Government IDs and Had Illegal Steroids and Child Porn Admits Guilt”: I cribbed that headline right from the story, because it was just too good, perfectly capturing the ludicrous nature of this case. Nicholas Freed was originally under investigation for receiving steroids by mail. When he went to go pick up that package, he was dressed as a federal officer, complete with a U.S. Marshal badge. Note: Freed is not a U.S. Marshal. When police raided his house, they found a “sophisticated government identification counterfeiting operation.” And child porn. Can’t forget the child porn.
