  • ONCE AGAIN THE VPD WILL PROBABLY GET AWAY WITH BEING CROOKED AND LYING IN COURT, AND ANYTHING ELSE THEY WANT TO DO! IT'S BASICALLY LIKE SAYING BECOME A COP IN VICTORIA AND YOU CAN DO JUST ABOUT WHAT EVER YOU WANT AND GET AWAY WITH IT. THEY ALL COVER UP FOR EACH OTHER, COPS , DA'S , JUDGES..ALL OF THEM, THATS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOUR IN THIS BACKWARDS LITTLE TOWN THAT STILL HAS IT'S GOOD OL' BOY MENTALITY.

  • Fire them all and start over with a different set of crooked politicians.

  • The Rosado case was appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court and they have not decided whether to accept the case yet.

  • Tyler has spent more than enough time and taxpayer money on this mess. If it had been a good case it would have been in court in record time. I seem to recall the attorneys for Ure and Lieutenant Buentelo both wanting to get it tried promptly. No DA stalls on a good case. Of course making mistake after mistake does slow one down.

  • It's ok Steve, just 9 official more months and you wont have to worry about any of this again. You and your good bud Eli can go back to defending the crooks in January.

  • I have to go with DA Steve Tyler.
    He is the DA, head of Jurisprudence of the City of Victoria.
    The Police Chief, Ure is head of Law Enforcement of
    the City of Victoria.
    I'm sure the brief was not filed for a good reason.
    Mr. Tyler is a smart and articulate man.
    My vote is his.

  • Keep up the fight, Mr. Tyler. I am curious as to what is contained in the motions and trancripts that the highly paid defense attorneys want to keep sealed. Only by unsealing documents, and having everything open in a court of law, will we really ever have closure to this case.

    Who is in the wrong? Bruce Ure? Steve Tyler? People can conjecture all they want, but unless EVERYONE (Ure, Smith, Buentello and Tyler) have their day in court...no one will really ever know.
    And that's the way things are done in Victoria, Texas.

    Can't wait for the Advocate's editorial praising this court decision and continuing their crusade (vendetta?) against Mr. Tyler. It will be more of their "fair and balanced" coverage of the case.

  • Zero.

    This elects Ms. Branch. Don't you think?

  • Connecticut law? In Texas? Seems a bit of stretch if Tyler can't use Texas law to support his position. Next thing we know, Steve is going to be citing the New York Times as controlling authority.

    If it was really important, Tyler should have asked the court of appeal to wait. Failing to file ANYTHING is a monumental blunder of career ending proportions. Can't wait to see Tyler apologists blaming his attorney Kollman for the error. Or will Tyleristas blame the poor ADAs who actually carry his criminal case workload?

    Tyler is on record saying that the state pays his salary so this case isn't chaffing the back of the taxpayers. (Apparently he is unaware of who is paying the state to pay his salary.) So, Steve, who is paying Kollman?
