"You know they're thoughtful and what they're doing that's another piece and other ingredient. All this of course is the sauce. You dip it in Do you go for like a marin. Ara sauce or we do kind of our house tomato sauce that we we work on is. It's pretty much what goes into like our spaghetti and meatballs but not all things. We use multiple different tomatoes for different aspects of different dishes. Like we do a fresh kind of smaller local tomato that we just cook with chilies and crush in. That's something that i want with barada because it's higher and acid lower and sweetness and generally like when you get the cans san marzano's they carry more sweetness. Which is what we use for our base blend but then we also that with bianco tomatoes. So they're just the best. So it's it's one of these things like we use different tomatoes for different aspects but are our sauce also used for like spaghetti and the toasted ravioli is san marzano. that'd be uncle blend. Okay enough talk. It's time to try shepherds on toasted ravioli. He prize up a batch in his kitchen. Sprinkles a liberal helping to kinds of cheeses on top of the already very cheesy rectangular shape graphs and places them on a dish with red sauce. You just described when settling the dining area for my taste so instantly. I get that this does not. It's not over breaded which is one of those things that like you find lots of places they'll just like just take it with breading and then over fry it and the whole thing is kind of like really dense as a result yet. This is still still got a crisp but still got a little bit of a crunch too. But it's a little bit thinner which is much closer to what i'm used to in saint louis. The problem started looking for raviolis. Dumping these things in the i. Just it's like eating little bricks you know just to to to to some to in too dense and so it was like i still wanted to keep it like crispy but like it does. It is that. And i'm picking up the the different cheeses. Which which ones are in their carino parm and ricotta me. Take another bite here. Yeah you definitely pick up the mozzarella and especially the the record in terms of the consistency. That makes it a little different to I still like the beef ravioli. We started seeing a lot of families right. And that's not something that normally we've seen so they can get the kids in here like this is an immediate kid love and like dish and so everybody be we do It's funny like this is. The combo is toasted ravioli and fried calamari. Almost every table boom boom an essays. Those two things are what goes out the most. I still don't understand why this does not has not taken off in houston. Do you think maybe giving people the opportunity to to sample it. You think maybe another restaurant or two out. There might pick this up and tried out. You know it's it's super easy. So i mean you saw what we did and it doesn't it takes forty five seconds. You know on a busy night. And so the yeah. I would think so. Houston area chef. Chris shepherd at the latest iteration of his multiple restaurants. One concept one fifth now called one fifth red sauce italian.

"This is houston matters. I'm craig urquhot the much maligned. Electric reliability council of texas has issued. What it calls new roadmap to strengthen the state's energy grid on the heels of the winter freeze that saw widespread power failures across the state. Meantime chevron has been hit with an eighty five million dollar federal lawsuit for its part in that failure to discuss. We're joined now by lauren. Steffi managing director for thirty point strategies a writer at large for texas monthly and a uh energy scholar lauren. Good morning good morning craig. How are you. I'm well thanks. This roadmap calls for better cooperation and communication ensuring reliability and restoring trust in confidence and evaluating or cuts processes and innovating. Does any of that mean anything of any real substance. Well that remains to be seen. We've got new leadership at arcot They're clearly trying to change the way. The greatest managed and some of these things. will probably have more benefit than others. One of the things that i found particularly interesting is a requirement that would make power. Plants basically have onsite fuel storage for natural gas This is something that a lot of power plants used to do with coal Because that's relatively easy right. You just pilot up somewhere But but now we're talking about having actual storage for gas. So that you know if transmission lines if pipelines and whatnot froze Then they would still be able to generate something at least So that may actually be one of the more beneficial things to come out of this. This new roadmap does urquhot unilaterally have the authority to mandate that. Well you know that's one of the things that'll be debated the love. Asli be some pushback from the industry of all these things get hashed out over time and and the other big question of course. Is you know what happens if generators. Don't do this. what are the. what are the fines. When you look at the for example the plan that the legislature passed to require more winterisation for power plants. The fine for not doing that is is relatively low As far as these companies are concerned. And so you know. It's it's not clear whether this will create the necessary incentives for some of these safeguards to be built in or not Unfortunately we have seen in the past of when the state has tried to require these sorts of things There really hasn't been much behind it. Well you you mentioned that these things get hashed out over time and you mentioned the winterisation bill and it's Relatively low fines. Small fines Without the the legislature in light of what the legislature to put it as as bluntly as possible did not do a following the winter freeze. Is there any reason to think they will do this. In two years time. I would not hold out hope that the legislature do anything. This i mean the governor has basically said the problem is fixed. Let's move on and you know he's focused on on other things Clearly with with what we've seen with the special session so i. I don't think that there's a lot of incentive in the legislature to do much of anything beyond what has already been done which is really not nearly enough to ensure reliability. So what you're saying is basically cuts saying we're going to require this Plants will probably in one form or another sue and say. You're not allowed to do this. And it'll be up to the courts to decide. Yeah there could be. There could be lawsuits as a result of this. I mean it could simply be sometimes worked out that way You know what what her putting out. There is a proposal and they'll get feedback from all the different market players. And they'll try to reach some sort of consensus So you know it sounds good at this point. But we're a long way from figuring out exactly what the what the end process is gonna look like. What should our expectations be of. Not just urquhot but everybody else involved in the generation distribution and delivery of electricity in texas. Well you know. The reliability has really not been something that's been a focus of the system You know during the last twenty years that we've we've been in this market and and i don't think that's going to change significantly. It's it's an expensive component to add to the market. It's sort of outside of the system we've created and so you know what you have seen an overarching focus on price and And that leads to a lot of misplaced incentives At a time of crisis. So i think it's something that without fundamental structural change in the market and with the oversight of the market We're not going to see a significant change in in the outcome You know one of the big things that we've seen in this. Last crisis is hard natural. Gas system in our electrical system are now far more intertwined than they ever have been and we don't really have a regulatory structure to to deal with that. I mean the the gas system is regulated by the railroad commission and and the electrical systems regulated by the puc and arcot and there hasn't been a lot of cooperation between those two and certainly not a lot of coordination And that's going to be an increasingly big problem. Going forward of course The process of electricity generation begins with energy producers chevron was hit with an eighty five million dollar lawsuit this past friday by caleb gas marketing which alleges chevron failed to deliver natural gas during the winter storm What should we know about this lawsuit. This is one of. I think more than about three. Doesn't that have been filed related to these sorts of issues and some of them have been appalled by companies and other states The the freezing up of the gas System in texas caused a huge ripple effect across the midwest other utilities couldn't get gas that they needed to generate electricity. And things like that and so we've seen a lot of litigation around this issue by the various market players cps energy which is basically the san antonio spurs utility is the very outspoken about this issue. And you know we're probably going to see more. It's gonna take years for a lot of this stuff to work. Its way through the through the legal system. But there's basically billions of dollars in liability that are sort of floating out there and way kind of waiting to see who ultimately gets stuck paying for all his this. Is this a musical chairs buck-passing kind of thing. We're getting sued for what we think is your mistake not ours. Yeah there's definitely a lot of finger pointing in a very a very expensive blame game going on here and it's it is complicated right. I mean i was talking to somebody the other day about the the situation with you. Know gas wells freezing and gas producers not being able to produce enough and you know he made the point. He said we'll part what happened. Was you know they weren't getting enough electricity to run their equipment and then when they finally did when that problem was cleared up. Electricity was at you know the highest price possible. You know nine thousand dollars megawatt hour and so the gas producers were just like we can't afford to produce it this price and so they basically just didn't and exacerbated the problem and so you had to sort of downward spiral there. There were a lot of different components coming into play here. And it's part of the reason you're sort of seeing everybody sues everybody else because nobody wants to pay for this right and and so it's gonna take a long time to to get all this resolved. It's going to be messy. It seems to me that there may be some parallels there between how different companies are responsible for different pieces of the generation and distribution and delivery electricity just as different agencies in texas are responsible for different steps along the way between the electricity that is produced and what actually finds its way into our homes and businesses. No absolutely. i mean. I think that that you know. You're seeing a lot of fragmentation. Although the regulatory side of of the market side and that's you know obviously been the case for a long time but this is where it becomes obvious when they're when there is a crisis there isn't really anyone you know sort of systems engineer looking at this whole thing trying to figure out how all these different parts can act and what that means for average texans of that led to a crisis led to a lot of property damage and it led to you know hundreds of of people dying. That really shouldn't have died. and so that's you know that's a huge concern going forward and it's one that really has.

"Should be more carefully scrutinized than they are at at the moment i do not because you know the experience has not shown any reason to change. What's happening the engineering societies. You we are all licensed engineers or the state has got a very stringent requirements for licensing. So we the practicing engineers here in houston reasonably competent. They have and there's been no signs of anything that would raise alarm bells that you have really concern yourself first thing. I would say that. Even the building. Florida you gotta remember that. The number of buildings that have collapsed in the united states of very very few and far between most of them that have collapsed have collapsed during construction Building this age Not collapse just because of the age. Because maybe there's some deterioration for whatever reason and when you see those signs of deterioration that's when you ought to Blow the alarm bells and swan.

"This is houston matters. I'm craig cohen. More bodies have been recovered last few days from the remains of that collapsed condo tower and surf side florida authorities leading the search and rescue operation as of last night. Put the death toll at twenty eight so far with one hundred seventeen. People still unaccounted for that devastating collapse and news late last week of the ordered evacuation of another condo building found. Structurally and electrically unsafe in north. Miami beach leads us to wonder whether the houston area has any similar buildings constructed decades ago. That might require more stringent review. And how that works. Exactly dr joe. Colosio is a professor at the gerald hines college of architecture and design at the university of houston doctor colosio. Welcome to houston matters. Good morning good morning as we chat we welcome your questions and comments for guest at seven one three four four zero eight seventy or talk at houston matters dot org now in addition to teaching at the university of houston you have been a structural engineer involved in the design of a number of famous skyscrapers number here in houston including the jp morgan chase building one. Shell plaza the williams tower and uptown outside houston and my right also the burj khalifa in dubai the tallest building in the world that one. We just did the fear of you. We didn't design the building. But more to the point We did several buildings in florida with. Its three or four. Very tall buildings in miami several buildings in tampa outta soda jacksonville. And so on. So we've done a lot of work in the area that that's under consideration right now. In fact even even the review process is a big part of what it is. We wanted to talk with you about what. What does a structural engineer do either in the design or review process to ensure that what architects are intending to create. Whatever is being built no matter how dramatic or tall. Or what have you will quite literally stand the test of time. Well we have a recognized procedures of analysis and design of buildings and this specified by Building codes that specified by special codes like american concrete institute has got a code for concrete buildings. american ichiro. Steel construction has got going so steel buildings. We have to follow those codes above and beyond that on every project we do. We get a geotechnical report because the soil report telling us what kind of soil we have to deal with. And how do we build the foundation for the for that particular project then after that we do the design to the drawings and then we have field shop drawings and inspections and so on so there's a continuous procedure from stock to finish to ensure that buildings a well designed and well built what. What are some of the things you have to think about. When designing and then constructing a building in the houston area that might be similar to what structural engineers have to contemplate in south florida In in the houston area. Fundamentally and i'll just a differentiated to houston area from what happened at upside florida. Which is right near miami First of all south side project was on the ocean. we fifty miles from the ocean. So we have different conditions from this from climatic standpoint that that's upside. Secondly the building on the side was on reclaimed. Land whereas all buildings in houston For example the downtown area the gallery The greenway plaza area all the energy car or even north near the airport. We're on on on natural soil. there's no reclaim soil that we have to deal with third. The foundation systems therefore slightly different. We have Continuous what we call matt foundations over at the big thick slab that we cast on the ground. All we have. Concrete footings are tied together throw and so forth whereas in this particular building in florida they have to be byles Which are call. Cast piles and they go down. Deep in the ground was we have just a continuous matt foundations. Lots of differences between the wade was built in sub side Florida was what we do here. Huston even though we are fifty miles inland We do still face the threat of tropical storms and And severe weather of all kinds. Flooding of course is a consistent problem here. How does that play into what design for a building here in houston might need to include or might need to consider that it might not in other parts of the country. Well we do have very strong tropical storms and hurricanes here in houston Just to give you a set of numbers that we might be dealing with. We designed for a storm that that has a chance coming in once every hundred years which is the same thing to do in florida but the florida storms are much stronger than ours so they have to design for much higher level. A wins than we do. When i'm when i said they're on the ocean. I was talking mostly about the salt a problem which which which is very corrosive to Reinforcing steel and concrete buildings whereas we don't have that same problem here in houston if the houston ian lives or works in a building that was developed and constructed forty or fifty or more years ago. What should they know or ask about that. Buildings long-term stability. Well i've been practicing in. Houston paul fifty five years now so the buildings that I worked on about far back. I still in existence one shell plaza for example has been around for almost fifty years just to give you a sense of of the numbers The what you should ask about has got nothing to do with the age of the building. It's more the performance of the building for example. If you walk into a building and you start to see some things you see cracks on the slabs you see cracks on the columns or you see the floors that have sloping slanting away from the one side to the other. Then you begin to ask the question. Is this building faith or something needs to be done and so on and so forth. And that's universal that happens for any building whether you're houston or in florida if you start to see signs of defects then you begin to ask questions. We know that this condo in florida that collapsed that there was there was some warning given about its structural integrity. But who knew what and understood what about that warning is not entirely clear. How often are buildings like that. Inspected for structural defects or where needed repairs does it vary from one municipality to the next it does vary for one municipality in the next For example in florida on southern floor with on this particular building they have an inspection after after the age of forty years and then and every ten years thereafter. That's that's the law. Down in florida and houston. We do not do structural inspections that way that are fire marshal inspection done on a regular basis but not structurally spectrum so here in houston that what we again. If somebody's worried about a building that you look for the telltale sign that and to this day. I've never had any of that kind of worries about buildings in houston. Texas is of course a state that has for a long time been governed by leadership that values limited regulations in the interest of spurring a free market. That also means that there are some things that maybe shouldn't be quite so lax at least in in some people's eyes some things that maybe are. Are there examples of that in building. Codes and regulations. Things that you think.

"You know the person's exit exiting our system and at that point is the one that makes those determinations. Obviously we have to comply with us before and things like that. So they're the ones that make the determination we we don't Keep track honesty of you. Know who they're letting go. And what what type of charges and things like that because simply again by before it state law. We have to comply so. That's under their purview. That that's not. That's not a local decision. That happens here. Dula is in south. Houston what's your question for. The sheriff should be the by the way Chief 'cause dallas that we are. We are very proud of you. And congratulations Thank you very much. I think you're not going to teach culture in washington you point and So be careful what people tell you so much okay. So my question is in regard to law enforcement and economic justice. Now you can put as many police. As you want there is no economic justice of reducing inequality in our society putting the burden on police. You know i'm just initial question are going forward now. And i'm hoping you get confirmed but just putting emphasis on police brutality police enforcement law enforcement that at tracing income inequality you know you know we. We have the largest population president african americans that he's a coordination of in history that this have people have been denied opportunities and other things unless we can address those issues. Law enforcement can handle everything for society. just want to ask you that question. In regard to enforcement and inequality you know lack of quality education and all these things. I mean you know they they putting a burden too much on others addressing the the core issue thank you. Yeah well. you're you really touch on something that i'm very passionate about and that's always dealing with root causes here In our harris county jail where the largest state of texas they won the arts in the country. We see a lot of those disparities. Every day that you touched upon. We have a high level of illiteracy within or inmate population. We have a generally poor health. We see all the typical chronic illnesses that are out in the community. If not worse we see diabetes hypertension. We have a geriatric population. We have pregnant females. That are here. We we see the whole gamut and we spent a lot of money on medical care and other things like that. We also spend quite a bit on mental health care When thirty plus percent of our population has some type of diagnosis of mental illness within our facility and requires at least one psychotropic medication We've collected some data as well where we have a lot of individuals that i formerly been involved in the foster care system as well that ended up incarcerated and so all of those issues that that are very important in what ends up happening and something that we try to address as well is that the individuals go back out into the free world and then they find it very difficult to compete in the marketplace when they have very few marketable skills and then on top of that they've been incarcerated before and you know it's another another barrier that they have to overcome these challenges like always tell folks when i walk through gel. It's you know. I it's life we're gonna have to to deal with it and work and we try to give them skills to overcome some of that but those are tremendous challenges of that all societies side. He's have to grapple with all those disparities that do exist. We're also doing a lot to work with the children of incarcerated with incarcerated parents as well because we have a high number here in harris county about ninety thousand children every year have a parent that's incarcerated in our jails so We we have to do something. A break that that that cycle that that cradle to prison pipeline. That so many talk about because we know that if a juvenile has apparent that's incarcerated were on probation or pro the likelihood of them becoming justice involved in their life becomes about sixty or seventy percent as well so that that's a big problem and so it's really going to impact. The future vitality of our region is There's a whole Group of of individuals out there that already starting out you know from from a very bad position. And so we're wanting to rethink. How how we address that whole criminal justice system and and to be mindful of those other that collateral damage as well norbert in northeast. Houston norbert. what's your question for sheriff gonzalez. I had a question about prostitution like we probably dishes. Pretty bad at my side of town you steps and and i was just curious about like we've called the police before and they come in they deal with the prostitutes we don't ever focus on the people controlling the prostitutes. I'm just wondering if is something that i'm supposed to be reporting device as like organized crime or how does this. How does it work for me to be able to do something about this. I'm not saying the women are criminals. I mean they're victims as well. So i'm just. I'm not sure how to handle that. What what What what was the court where you mentioned what what was some of the area. You mentioned if east takes jensen where i live. It's on yeah north. Yeah yeah absolutely One of the things that we did When i took off his back in twin seventeen is we really try to focus. Not so much on the women you know because we understand that many have been trafficked or are there because a lot of other underlying issues We see that in our jail where there's a lot of unresolved trauma Domestic violence drug abuse threats all kinds of stuff and so we have tried to focus more on on on the consumer side of it Whenever we participate in different task forces with both of the city of houston houston police department as well as the district attorney's office to try to combat this issue and human trafficking in general You know a lot of that That industry has gone underground. I mean a lot of it is now is done through apps and other things. It's a whole different Way than what it used to be. There's not as many would we would call streetwalkers as as there used to be in the past You know that that is a quarter out there that i could make sure that our team takes a look at and to see what could be done. We also Do send forensic nurses tour Operations as well to make sure that That you know there are some Assistance there for the females. That may be involved. So it's a complex issue. I mean it is out there in different communities We know that other corridors like in south west are also grappling with it so it does happen But we understand that you also want to make sure that your communities are staying faith and that some of the behavior that's around just the prostitution itself isn't spilling out into the neighborhoods and things like that. Were children may be around in schools and things like that. So i'll have our team take a look at that area out there a little bit more. See see what you're doing but you're doing the right part by reporting it You know and Another good thing is to get to know some of the local law enforcement in your area. I think part of that falls within the houston police department. I know have a pip meeting every month. Usually and you get to know some of the commanders out there and leaders And it might be a good way for you to visit with them directly and voice your concern so that you can understand some of the challenges that they may be having.

We have shannon on the line and katie shannon. What's your question or comment for sheriff. Gonzalez hi thanks for taking my call. Sheriff i had a question. I've been concerned about reports. That i hear about border agents in what i feel is an uncompetitive Actions relating to immigrants you know. Examples are separating kids from their givers or pouring out water that migrants used when they Transition i was wondering how consolidated lead with compassion is. He was confirmed by the senate. Thanks for calling for the question. Sheriff well thank you again You know unfortunately. I'm just not in the daily operations of the agency so it's really kind of hard for me to know all the facts on the ground and exactly what's happening other than just you know news reports and other things you know. I think i've always I'm a proven leader. I've lead in in different fronts here locally so i think people understand my leadership rent and I've always tried to be a always said in fact that we could be firm when it comes to law enforcement but at the same time. We don't have to check our humanity at the door. We could still be compassionate in the work that we do. And i've always tried to Carry that with me. And whatever assignment i've done and and whether i'm here doing a different job i'll always try to make sure that i'm bringing some common sense and some compassion to the job at the same time you know. I understand that It's important role and and Perspective rule of law so You know we'll have to cross that bridge when we get to them simply not in a position right now to talk about an agency. I'm not directly involved with so it'd be premature for me to talk about it. All right Roberta's in the museum district roberta. What's your question or comment. well i have I really think he should think that. Think about what he just said. I think it's important from now on to have a fuller answer. 'cause my question was going to be and something the senators and ask you anyway. How do you envision you position. And i'm sure going to be approved but assuming you'll be approved you know you can't say well haven't studied the issue then they while you here sir you know so you need to think about more about it and second. This is very important. I'm hispanic you're hispanic. I think what you can do is bring cultural awareness hispanic. Oh so awareness to the table at the white house and you can be looking at directly at comilla harris and say it was a mistake for you to go down there and point blank. Tell them not to come up here. That's that's a that's something from the trump playbook and we should be like you said more much more compassionate and not send mixed messages vice president nights states being sent by the president and being so rude. Our culture highly highly values politeness. And i'm not saying with a smile. I'm just saying that was a complete mistake. Says you can take that to the table. Appreciate it thank you. Thanks for the call. Any any thoughts here No like i said i. I'm not in that role yet. craig. I've got to focus your local issues. That's my focus right now. Obviously you know there's a time and place for that and and very happy to engage those issues and and once we get there. Unfortunately i can't speak on on a position have not Don't even have a meeting set up yet so i'm going to focus just to your local crime issues. That's my focus harris county. What about though just without getting deep into the new role specifically the idea of in whatever job you do bringing some measure of cultural awareness or a process to to your work is there. Is there something to to what the caller was. just suggesting. i mean. I don't I'm going to let you know male Very proud of my roots. I'm bilingual bicultural. And it's something that i think has always Help it's been part of my leadership. Brand. it's not something you know. i'm i'm proud of my my my roots and and i am proud and lucky to be able to engage with a march number In our diverse community in different languages and and You know bringing that perspective to the job. I think it's important. I think no matter. I think that's why it's important to have diversity in all agencies and organizations and so it's absolutely something that i think in. My opinion is an asset to to any position. Cynthia is in southwest. Houston cynthia what's your question or comment. I share the local question But i've heard rumors from associates.

Welcome back to the program. Hey good morning nice to be with you. Glad to have you with us. And i do want to talk about your nomination in a bit. But let's let's start with some of what's happening in harris county related to law enforcement. I guess which really start where matt harrop led off in the newscast just now talking about that hit and run accident on. I forty five last night This is not the only incident like it over the holiday weekend. On friday night there was a deadly crash on the west side of the katy freeway near mason when a driver. Who was veering in and out of lanes slammed into a tractor trailer stopped on the left shoulder in spring driver plowed into a food truck. Another person died in a street racing accident on. I forty five. That was in. Montgomery county impaired driving distracted driving street racing. Was it just another weekend. Typical july fourth weekend or something worse this year. Well unfortunately i here in our region we've become accustomed to it and that's the sad thing i've been saying for some time that really seemed to have developed a a dangerous driving culture and all of the different factors that you mentioned or some of them Cova didn't change anything. We continue to have Fatalities on roadways. We continue to see it now. Continue see impaired driving. So all of those are factors the one last night involving the teams. Just heartbreaking situation allegedly arguing with the mother and the vehicle moving vehicle Gets out of the car you know as a car travelling and another car strikes her and flees the location and she was pronounced a see so I it's just again very tragic. We continue to see a number of fatalities around our roadways here in harris county and i really wish something that could change. We've increased enforcement. We've added more We've created a a unit specifically trying to address some of the dangerous illegal street racing that we're seeing out there. Some of the illegal stunts that were seen as well but apparently It's still not not enough because we're still seeing too much of it here we're gonna continue to. We can't change course. I received an email from a listener over the weekend. Complaining about people dodging in and out of toll lanes and it just reminded me that we see this of on our highways especially but really everywhere all the time could even more stringent enforcement of speeding among other things. Make a difference. Make a dent enforcements. Just want peace. I've always believed that. You really need a multi prong approach. You need more education more awareness as much as we do. We still need more You know we go out. And we do different traffic initiatives to try to remind people to slow down and sometimes they don't even issue citations to simply you. It's not about raising revenue or anything like that. It's really about changing driver behavior You know we see some of those portable traffic units that tell you kind the speed you're going and sometimes just that quick feedback loop Tends to work but people get back to to speeding again and we tend to have a lot of that. We have a lot of people running. Red light Distracted driving like you mentioned And in the hundred days between labor day and and You know the hundred days after it tend to be the most deadliest especially for young drivers that are out on the roadways. You know it's summer and they get behind the wheel of a car and just sometimes act responsibly. And we really hope to change course. We hope that we could do. Better here harris coun- setting aside driving and accidents. What are some other trends. You're seeing in terms of crime in harris county these days. Yeah well we're also seeing. I guess related to driving as well. You know an uptick in road rage incidents we partnered with the houston police department and gps last year to raise awareness about it as well because we're seeing a trend that you know we were very unhappy about it was just a number of people discharging weapons at other drivers you know. And and so Tempers are short sometimes especially when when the weather is hot and like you said aggressive driving all of that just the perfect storm and more people seem to be packing weapons these days and you know they they forget it. It's a dangerous thing. And i responded to seen the other day on these takes freeway and You know it was really scary to to see one of the bullet strikes to the rear window and there was a child seat right there. Thankfully the child wasn't in the car at that moment but it could have been fatal occurrence for that for that infant and so we're seeing taking that as well it seems and so you know that that's That's all very concerning. And we know what. We're seeing the uptick in violent crimes In the greater harris county area. And while we're not immune to it You know we're we're we're seeing another parts of the country as well but nonetheless it's concerning while working collaboratively to try to see what we could address some of those those root causes and making sure that we're staying aggressive and proactive and making sure that we go An and get those Chronic offenders that are out there. Julie writes it seems that more shootings are happening by younger shooters she asks. Where are they getting the guns from. How important is it for gun owners to keep their guns locked up both at home and in their cars very important. And i think that that you said i mean at at home you know making sure that your teams or even children don't have access to it in any kind of way that you're being responsible gun owner As well as when you're In transit as well that you secure weapons as well. We've seen situations where people are being Followed they they see them leaving a gun range for example and they see the different stops that they make they stop and At a local goods store. Stop to get something eat. Maybe let the gun in the car. People breaking into those cars and they're ending up in the long hands and so we're seeing quite a bit of that and good observation by by that caller as well that we Do are seeing also an uptick in crimes involving juveniles and many times armed as well. And i mean they could be a very dangerous situation only because there obviously Not proficient with a weapon but You know they were to have some kind of encounter with law enforcement you know. It's it's just some bad things could happen. And they're also out there committing very serious crimes with those weapons as well. We've seen some of them committing armed robberies and things like that so really need more adult supervision. You know making sure that they're also being responsible with their guns. Liz rights and asks Could you explain how texas gun laws impact the flow of guns across our southern border. And what you'd like to see on a national or state level to try and curb gun violence and gun trafficking. Yeah well i mean it definitely is a is an issue. I mean the cash and weapons. Traveling south You know have been a major concern for a long time You know with some of the cartel activity that goes on and supporting some of that That illegal activity that goes on with that You know that's something that you know. Current federal partners are trying to tackle. You know i'm not privy to all the information and things that they're working on but we know that the department of justice immigration authorities and others are always working and trying to combat the stem of those weapons and so You know it's very easy to get Access to farms especially along some of the border state so You know that's big issue to tackle and you of course could become one of those immigration authorities here soon.
