Im just so upset and fuming right now, I hope I an tone if for this blog but my son had a cold and went to CVS Pharmacy in League City, TExas tonight to get his medicine with my mother.  I got a call and my 18 year old son said, Mom, the police swarmed the pharmacy and arrested the deaf mute kid that works at the register, I said for what, he said I think he sold cigarettes to and undercover police officer.  I said, what.  I go to this pharmacy all the time and this DEAF MUTE kid, tries so extra hard, harder than anyone else to do a great job.  Ive never seen any kids buying cigarettes or alcohol and he is even nice to make sure you get all your pharmacy discounts although he is handicapped.

I called pharmacy and the female head pharmicst got on and she said, Bobbi, he was set up, an under cover police officer came in with a fake ID and he read it wrong, she said his girl friend works in the pharmacy and I could hear all the women crying in the background.  She said the police swarmed CVS and she said he was a good employee and really tried hard and was innocent.

My son said he saw the kid being taken away in hand cuffs crying.  And now anyone arrested has to go to Galveston which is still not cleaned up from Ike and he will be there all night.

I left my number to help with bail.

Anyone that has read my blogs, knows I can not tolerate injustice and I will defend the innocent.  I dont like to see anyone harmed or picked on and I called the Police Chief to wage a formal complaint against the undercover officer.  The officer I spoke with his dad and mine were police officers togethern in Galveston. He tried to first tell me that maybe this was as sting because this has happened before and I said, you know CVS is not a liqour store and its not a bar, this kid spends 99 percent of his time cleaning up and checking out Kotexs than selling beer, I said since you know my dad then you will know what kind of officer he was.  I remember in school my friends would come to me and say,... Bobbi, your dad pulled us over last night and we were drinking and we thought we were going to jail but did you know your dad took us home to our parents... he gave us a stern lecture and made sure our parents knew but he saved us an arrest and jail.

I said, where is the judgement in arresting a deaf mute kid just barely earning a living ?

Where is that type of judgement in this.  I filed a formal complaint.. and Im just fuming.  Now I do believe that anyone knowingly selling liquor to minors or cigarettes to minors should be arrested but come on.. an undercover cop using a fake ID ona  Deaf handicapped MUTE kid ?

I just feel sick tonight, I called my daughter and some other neighbors to also join in with complaints to the chief.. this is what we are paying our taxes for ?  We have over 60 thousand dispalaced Galvestonians here in our area and all League City Police has to do is set up a sting operation on a Deaf handicapped MUTE.

MY daughter said well I guess the Barney Five Patrol had nothing better to do tonight..

Im going to get my media contacts involved.  

Fuming.. Mad

    • this is ridiculous!! I’m fuming with you. Get in touch with the media.  

      Usually they do this when it is very busy, and long lines to mess up the cashier. This poor boy is probably so very scared.  

      Plz keep us posted!!

    • Bobbi,
      I am mad with you. Injustice is the only thing that raises my bp! And there are so many in this polluted corrupted world. I hope you are able to right this wrong, and that justice will prevail.

    • Bobbi, all I can think of is the incident at the wedding you wrote about. What is wrong with the police department over there? Do they have nothing better to do with their time than to browbeat people for nothing? Why do they feel they have to make an example of this young man?

      It’s horrible.

      When it comes to abuse of power, I’m sorry but I have to say this, S**t trickles down from the top

    • Chocolatier, Mary, Teeky, all ladies, I think its sad for police knowing this kid is handicapped to set him up like that.. heck I could even misread a forged ID.. then to swarm in like swat ??  Please.. I think they did it because they could and yes the police in Galveston county are and have been getting our of control in all police departments around here.  Im not saying there arent good police and that they dont do good things, Im saying that there are bad apples.  

      The police department website is  

      [Link Removed]

      and the police chief has a direct email on that site.  

      Just reference the Arrest at the League City CVS at the interesection of FM 518 and Bay Area Blvd about 6.00 PM to 7:00 PM where they arrested a deaf Mute handicapped male clerk, via use of an undercover cop and a false id that the clerk misread.

      I filed mine via phone but was told that you can complain direct to chief using the address above.

      Thanks all.. and I am sick of injustce and abuse of power, this is happening all to often, and yes.. my nephew and cousin were victims in Galveston along with Brandon Backe and police are still not dropping all the charges.  

      Police are supposed to enforce the laws for the citizens, Police were never intended to become the LAW.

    • I agree Protect and Serve, what is happening is  

      “With Absolute Power it corrupts absolutely“.

      We are in a rock and a hard place we need protection and we give way too much power for that protection and in essence we have given away our freedoms in exchange.

      I dont know the solution here, other than the integrity of good police officers.. How do you know ?  

      I can imagine how many more victims there are by this officer.. It makes me literally sick..  

      Injustice makes my Blood crawl.. too HappyMomma.

      Well I drew the line in the sand tonight with the police department,  

      Ill be the Huckleberry.. Im fuming.. at this.

      I hated to hear my pharmacists crying.. she said she tried to explain to the officers that he misread the card.  How terriblly sad.

    • Berniek I did call the chief and complain, and I called the pharmacy to confirm what I already knew the kid was innocent.  You know even if he made a obvious mistake, in reading a forged id card, there is a think called a warning.. where is the integrity in our officers, where is the justice ?

    • Thanks all I just emailed the local press on the tip lines.. really Im sooo upset you know Galveston Jails are the worst.

      I just called the pharmacy and they said other customers are very upset and the bond is going to be 150.00 I said Id post it for him if they need it and they said the kid has never done anything in his whole life and they are in shock.  He has no record ever.  The city is moving the kid to Galveston County the worst jail and it wont be till morning that he will be out.

      Thanks for Anderson Cooper good Idea.

    • Update on Justin.  Justin Koch the handicapped Deaf Mute that was arrested tonight, his girlfriend Cassandra just called me to thank me.. she said she remembers all my children as she played with my Model daughter Vivian as a child.(see you never know how many lives you know and touch each day, I had no idea this little girl that came to my house for cookies was this kids girlfriend)

        Cassandra said, Justin said he even entered the date of birth into the CVS computer and it validated the ID, she said he could have mis entered it but why did it validate it ?  She said, Dustin had no translator and didnt understand why he was being arrested and they are moving him to County tonight worse than local jails, and he will be booked.

      Sgt York from League city just called to tell me that I have to go on line and complain in addition to my call and he said it was the Texas Alcohol and Tabbacco sting and League city was just assisting.

      I said, you know.  Someone has got to have some since in this.. and its League Cities jurisdiction and your responsiblity for this false arrest.  I said, has anyone heard of a warning ticket ?   Ever ?

      This kid had / has a clean record and was a good law abiding kid.  

      Now he has been arrested, will lose his job, will have to pay for legal defense and times are really bad right now all because of a Stupid action of one or two people.

      I gave Cassandra and Justin a local attorney referal but League City should drop the charges.

      Chinadoll Im trying to calm down.. I need Annies Zen pillow but this is dispicable to me.

      I hate injustice..

    • Bobbi,

      I can’t believe that this happened to this poor kid, gees, it makes me SICK~!  And HEY, let this be a warning to anyone who decides to work where there are cigerette sells.
      That would be another avenue for an article to be written.
      Would would happen to store owners if no one wants to work for them because of this ordeal? It sure would make you think twice. Poor guy,when I read this earlier there was steam coming from my ears! I had to cool down to even write
      about it. I HATE,HATE,HATE injustice~!!!!
