Rogue InjusticeShare this story:
I’ve been called many things, but here’s a new one – “PIECE OF FILTH.” That’s what I get for exposing the rogue injustice in East Texas.
Watch the previous investigative report here! ⬇️
We always like our friends on social media to meet our newest buddies like this charmer, his name is Robert Davis.
“I think you are a horribly unethical man,” said Robert Davis.
He’s a senior partner in the Flowers Davis law firm in Tyler, Texas. An insurance lawyer paid with taxpayer money to help defend county governments throughout Texas from lawsuits.
There is our friend Mr. Davis in a rare tv interview back in 2018, next to the Falls County sheriff who was accused of sexual assault.
“Basically, these allegations stem from I believe a vivid imagination,” claimed Davis.
Well, it must’ve been an imagination that was infectious because four other women claimed that now former lawmen sexually assaulted them too, But just ask Robert, I’m the real liar.
“Why don’t you tell the truth? Because you are liar you lie. You cannot tell the truth,” exclaimed Davis.
Mr. Davis has been kept quite busy lately defending the Nacogdoches County Sheriff’s Office.
Wayne Dolcefino asked, “Why don’t you let people see the truth about what’s happening in Nacogdoches?” Davis replied, “why don’t you tell the truth?”
We got all buddy-buddy with Robert in a parking lot across the street from the federal courthouse in Beaumont and he was on the warpath.
All because of our release of this video, now seen by tens of thousands of you, showing deputies in the Nacogdoches County jail teaching what they like to call pain compliance to a misdemeanor prisoner named Joseph Hanzich.
Deputies claimed Hanzich was suicidal. Seconds later this happened, three jailers jumped him in a hallway claiming he was aggressive. Then you see Hanzich punched wrestled and choked into a restraint chair by a half a dozen jailers. Cheap shots galore.
“You think it’s torture,” asked Dolcefino. Dana Hanzich replied, “absolutely.”
“I want all of the jailers that are on this video to be held accountable for what they’ve done to my son because they’ve probably done it to multiple other people,” continued Dana Hanzich.
You see Hanzich spitting on one of the deputies, he’s been charged with a felony because of that. But then one of the deputies spits on him.
“You sir are a piece of filth,” said Davis.
Davis had just been inside the Bob Casey Federal Courthouse falsely telling federal judge Michael Truncale the video we showed you had been doctored.
“You doctored the videotape,” claimed Davis. “How did I doctor the videotape?” asked Dolcefino. “You sped it up and slowed it down,” continued Davis.
Mr. Davis must have missed the class on analyzing videotape when he went to SMU Law School. We did slow a piece of the video down and we did zoom in too Mr. Davis because that made it easier to count all the unnecessary punches to the head on that handcuffed prisoner from the jail sergeant in charge of that lesson in brutality that day.
“It really pulls on your heart and makes you sick to your stomach at the same time and he’s not the first and he won’t be the last,” expressed Dana Hanzich.
But it wasn’t the speed of the video that was really what’s irking this county lawyer, it was the fact that folks in Nacogdoches County got to see it at all.
Davis had filed a motion for sanctions against civil rights lawyer Paul Anderson and his client Joseph Hanzich after the video was released.
Hanzich provided the video to us before an agreed protective order was signed by the judge and Anderson was called on the carpet.
“I am to stick to the rule of law and there will be consequences if we break those protective orders,” stated Paul Anderson.
To his credit, Judge Michael Truncale appears to be a true believer in the first amendment. And he argued the video would likely become public if the case ever went to trial.
But that’s part of the problem, many times alleged police brutality cases like this one settle without the video never sees the light of day.
Judge Truncale hasn’t yet announced how hell punish Anderson for the video leak, but it’s unlikely to be what Davis wants, he wants the whole case dismissed.
But the Hanzich video appears to fit a disturbing pattern we first saw months ago when we watched video of a witness to an alleged burglary getting punched in the face by Nacogdoches County Lawmen.
“I don’t trust none of them. At all,” expressed Hanzich.
A federal grand jury subpoenaed records from the Nacogdoches County sheriff’s office this spring after a jail whistleblower chronicled multiple alleged civil rights abuses.
We showed you a copy of the subpoena. The Nacogdoches media has refused to report it.
The county attorney John Fleming is fighting the public release of other videos documenting the use of that restraint chair inside the county jail.
We say taxpayers have a fundamental right to see the justice being doled out in their name.
But it’s not the only videos that should be released immediately. This is Jose Loredo in the final hours of his life.
He wanted to see pictures of his grandchildren before asking that his life support be pulled, doctors told Jose his life as he knew it was over.
“He didn’t look like our dad. He was on a ventilator. It looked nothing like him. He couldn’t talk. He couldn’t move,” recalls Jose’s daughter, Yesenia.
It was a heartbreaking march to death that began in a cell in the Nacogdoches County jail.
“Why do you want to talk to us?” Asked Dolcefino. Montsy replied, “to try and get answers for my dad’s case.”
There is no dispute Jose had a drinking problem. He had been in jail for over a year after his second drunk driving conviction.
There is no dispute on the morning of October 3, 2021, Jose fell and hit his nose on the toilet.
He says he became dizzy after someone in the jail upped a dose of the drug risperidone. It is prescribed for schizophrenia.
“I think that they just wanted to medicate him to not have to deal with him,” said Yesenia.
His kids weren’t even allowed to even see him in the hospital for ten days, by then he was a quadriplegic.
And they suspect his injuries may have worsened as he was allegedly dragged out of the jail cell.
In December of 2021 the Lufkin Daily News told us the Loredo family wanted answers.
It is now nearly two years after his death and Nacogdoches County is still playing games with this family.
“Have you looked at the medical records of the jail,” asked Dolcefino. Montsy replied, “they won’t – they won’t give us anything.”
“If they were competent, they wouldn’t need to hide anything. If they were doing their job right, they wouldn’t have to hide anything,” said David Loredo.
The family has still been denied the right to see jail video taken outside Jose’s jail cell that day.
In May of this year, they got their latest refusal to see anything.
And guess who doesn’t think Jose’s own children have a fundamental right to see what really happened to their dad. Robert Davis, the insurance lawyer for the Texas Association of Counties.
“I received an email basically saying we’re not getting. They basically lawyered up,” recalls Montsy.
You know who sits on the panel that approves his legal work, county attorney John Fleming.
In that December news article back in 2021 Nacogdoches County Sheriff Jason Bridges promised to remain transparent about the Loredo death case, he has not.
“It’s a huge coverup in Nacogdoches County, everybody is covering for somebody,” expressed Montsy.
Theres another important connection between all three of these cases under federal scrutiny, Corey Roland, Joseph Hanzich, and Jose Loredo. It’s Texas ranger James Hicks.
Both Joseph Hanzich and Corey Roland say their civil rights complaints to ranger hicks were ignored.
“That’s who is supposed to then police the police in Texas anyway,” said Roland.
Under Texas law Ranger Hicks couldn’t ignore Jose Laredo’s case.
He died in the hospital, but he was still in custody.
The family says the Ranger did interview them and it began with an insult, saying he was surprised the kids were so educated.
“He thought he was going to be able to brush us off. And maybe he expected us to be illegal Mexicans that weren’t going to be able to ask a lot of questions,” said Yesenia Loredo.
“Honestly there’s a lot of racism in Nacogdoches especially within law enforcement,” continues Yesenia.
And this year the Loredo case went to a grand jury and someone, we don’t know who, was not indicted.
Jose’s children say district attorney Andrew Jones didn’t even bother to tell them their father’s death was even presented to a grand jury.
“We’ll never have closure if we don’t know what happened,” expressed Yesenia.
The complaints about jail misconduct in Nacogdoches are mounting, but the same cast of characters in the sheriff’s department have escaped court punishment because of qualified immunity.
And going to bat against this wall of secrecy in the news desert of east Texas gets you a chance to meet fellas like Robert Davis. Who wants you to know, I lie for a living.
“Unfortunately, I have to talk to people who I don’t think are very ethical. I think what you are doing to hide stuff in Nacogdoches County is disgusting.
We know Judge Truncale isn’t happy the Hanzich jail video was leaked, but we hope this explains why a frustrated Joseph Hanzich wanted us to see the video of what happened to him because it confirmed his story.
We alone decided it was important to show it to you, Joseph should not be punished.
Robert Davis, he did tell the judge the mysterious injection that Hanzich got after he was put in the restraint chair was just a simple Tuberculosis shot.
He didn’t explain the seizure we saw a minute later, why no ambulance was called.
“You sir are a piece of filth,” exclaimed Davis.
See you again soon Mr. Davis.
