Two hours?

Thomas Lifson
Houston, we have a problem. A city known for getting things done is having difficulties with the basics these days. Now run by Democrats, the city is currently seeing crime skyrocket, with a police response that seems inadequate. Consider this, via the Houston Chronicle:

A man was shot to death today on a Metropolitan Transit Authority bus in west Houston after he apparently got into an argument with a man he may have touched or bumped while trying to get off the bus.

The alleged gunman was in custody and a passenger was taken to a hospital complaining of chest pains after the incident, which occurred about 11:30 a.m. on the 82 Westheimer route
Horrifying though transit crime is, the police handling seems completely inadequate.
Homicide detectives arrived at the scene shortly after 1:30 p.m.
Two hours? So what does the police chief have to say?
"This is a rare occurrence,'' said Metro Police Chief Tom Lambert. He noted that Metro carries 330,000 passengers daily on 1,300 buses.

METRO spokesperson Raequel Roberts should never, ever let Chief Lambert speak to the press without supervision. The implication that METRO carries a lot of passengers daily without many deaths probably isn't very reassuring to the family of the man who was killed, to riders on the bus, or to anyone really.
