The New Protocol for Harris County Crime Victims

1. Kim will never put crime victims in jail to secure a conviction.

2. Kim will always comply with Crime Victims’ Bill of Rights which is part of our Texas Constitution.

3. Mentally ill crime victims, like all crime victims, will be treated with dignity and their treatment and condition given consideration in the prosecution of their perpetrator’s cases.

4. Kim will insure that the Crime Victims’ Assistance Coordinator employed by the Harris County District Attorney as a matter of law actually advocates for individual Harris County crime victims and the rights of all crime victims.

5. Kim will create a special dedicated division of prosecutors trained, experienced and fully funded who will be responsible for the prosecution of all sex crime cases in Harris County.

6. Kim will end the constant and needless rotation of prosecutors in Harris County who handle sexual assault cases.

7. Kim will use drug forfeiture funds to eliminate any existing backlogs of rape kits.

8. Kim will adopt national standards for collection and use of evidence as recommended by the American Bar Association and the US Department of Justice to insure that the cases are sound and that the correct individual is charged.

9. KIm will use the powerful position of District Attorney to increase awareness about sexual assault so that reports of sexual assault are encouraged, not discouraged.

Prosecutors will be held to an ethical standard of professionalism and transparency deserving of the job of representing the people of the state of Texas and accountability will start at the top of the organization.

    Dear Sir or Madam:

    I am sorry for bothering you. I really am. But I have to at least try to get to the bottom of my problem. There is a man who is harassing me. He drives a mini hummer red and black with the specialty plates that say SAVEME. To me he resembles former mayoral candidate, Bill King. There are others whom join him that may be city employees. I have a long list of plates ie CNF7539 HDX 1396 DTG 2266 FJR 8998 GLN 2838 HID 3541 DMJ 5871 DNP 5072 HTC 0031 HLK 4198 DCL 1524 BM9B485 HMT 4329 HSM 7700 HTC 0031 DJ5K011 CZV 9580 HZN 4545 FWK 5510 BWH 1256 …and several more that I write down as these people chase me on an almost daily basis. Im trying to see if any of these tags belong to City of Houston employees. A lot of the time, I will see a City of Houston parking van in the line of cars following me.

    I am a registered nurse . I think the man in the hummer is concerned because I believe he was an actor in some possible medicare fraud at a home health company called interim healthcare that i used to work at. I believe he is harassing me because he is desparate and afraid I will report his activities to the Texas Medical Licensing Board or to Medicare.

    Again, sir, I am sorry for bothering you with this. I need some help because these people harass me day and night and soliciting assistance in finding out precisely who these people are and why they are following me is all I know to do right now.

    Thank you,

    Kim Edwards

    Last month on January 24th, Ana Weed was executed by her next-door neighbor Hector Campos while kneeling in her front yard trying to keep hector from kicking her dog when Hector ran into his house, grabbed a 9mm, came back outside and shot her through the heart at point blank range. Ana was still wearing a neck brace from the spinal fusion surgery in her neck she had recently and the bullet passed through the bottom of the collar. Ana died within minutes in her husband’s arms. Hector Campos stood nearby her while she was dying and called his attorney instead of calling 911 and talked to his attorney the whole time. This was a premeditated murder and an act of revenge because Ana helped Hectors now estranged wife to escape from an abusive relationship.

    To add insult to injury, the Harris County District Attorney intervened in this case and lowered Hectors bond to the minimum allowed under the law to $50,000 and he was back on the streets 12 hours after putting a bullet through Ana’s heart. The recommended bail was $350,000 and would have kept this dangerous man behind bars. The trial has been scheduled for November 2017 and Hector is walking our streets till then. Much of Ana’s family still live in the same neighborhood and Scott still live next-door to Hector. The entire family is living in fear of Hector now.

    Ana and Scott were together for 25 years and Ana just missed the birth of their 3rd grandchild last week.

    Ana was my cousin, and we demand justice for her, please reconsider Hector Campos bail and raise it to the maximum. We cannot have a murderer loose on the streets where he can kill again. Which you will be able to hear him in a favorite tv show where he says he would do it again if he had to.
