Travis county has a turn them loose DA like those Soros has helped to elect in liberal cities
Olmos isn’t a household name unless you know the Texas prison system well. Austin police certainly know him and his body of work. The eight-time felon convict was arrested (again) on May 25, 2021, after he had allegedly carjacked and gone on a crime spree, including multiple armed robberies across Austin.
Olmos was released on November 2, 2020, and was set to remain on parole until October of 2023.
But on April 2, 2021, while on parole, Olmos allegedly evaded arrest in a vehicle from the Sealy Police Department, in southeast Texas near Houston. Sealy police pursued him from that area until the Texas Department of Public Safety took over the chase as he moved west. Troopers pursued him into Travis County where he was apprehended. A source says Mr. Olmos was found in possession of a handgun and methamphetamine. He was arrested once again for unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon, evading arrest, and possession of a controlled substance.
Just four days later — on April 6, 2021 — Olmos was released from jail on a personal bond despite the fact he was a flight risk (he had just led police on a chase across Texas). The conditions of the personal bond included a GPS ankle monitor he was required to wear. Olmos allegedly removed that ankle monitor, and his personal bond was revoked on May 19, 2021. By then, he was already allegedly engaged in a crime spree.
Olmos would allegedly go on to commit ten robberies in 10 days across greater Austin. Nine of the robberies occurred within APD’s jurisdiction and one was in the jurisdiction of the Travis County Sheriff’s Office.
Olmos was arrested on the scene and was allegedly found to be in possession of the stolen vehicle keys, cocaine, methamphetamine, and a silver handgun that matched the description of the gun that was used in the previous robberies. It also matched the caliber of the rounds fired at the victim during robbery #8.
Olmos reportedly confessed to the 10 robberies and confessed to knowingly possessing a firearm even though he is a convicted felon.
The question residents of Travis County and Austin should be asking is a simple one: With eight prior felony convictions on his record, and a chase just four days before his release on April 6, why was David Olmos free?
I think that liberal DA's present a clear and present danger to the citizens because of their poor judgment in dealing with obvious criminals who are out of control. The victims of crimes after a known felon is released should have recourse against those responsible for the release. The legislature should be working on that since Austin and Travis are electing irresponsible people.
