Licker in Lufkin (UPDATED)

Filed under: Crime — DRJ @ 8:02 pm

[Headline from DRJ]

First the sale of Whataburger and now this:

Lufkin police are investigating a video of a serial Blue Bell ice cream licker and working to verify the identity of the female suspect before a warrant will be issued for her arrest on second-degree felony tampering with a consumer product charges.

On June 28, a video was released on social media of a woman licking Blue Bell ice cream before putting it back in the display case. Earlier this week, social media commenters identified the woman in the video as being from San Antonio, which led San Antonio law enforcement to believe it was from one of their Walmart stores. A store display case matching the one in the video could not be found. The search moved on to Houston Walmart stores after investigators learned the woman may be living with a boyfriend in that area, a release from Lufkin police states. Once again, the display case matching the one in the video could not be found.

Earlier Wednesday, Blue Bell corporate instructed all of its division managers to attempt to identify the store location. Within an hour, a Lufkin division manager called and said he believed it fit the Lufkin Walmart.

More here including a screenshot of “the lick.”

Word to the wise: Don’t mess with Blue Bell.

UPDATE 7/5/2019: Culprit identified but she is a juvenile (under 17) so this seems to be the end of story.


But Of Course: Democratic Candidates Begin To Weigh In On Betsy Ross Flag Kerfuffle

I only hope the rest of the pack follows the lead of these bold candidates. Oh come on, you knew the Betsy Ross “controversy” would make it to the Woke Olympics. Especially after the Democratic candidates have already settled the debate about the earth’s slow demise (12 years, people!), abortion up to the point of birth and no care for babies if they brazenly survive the sharp blade (It’s my body, not theirs!), and busing 2019 (Make Busing Great Again!).

Via Twitchy: from Beto O’Rourke:

“I think its really important to take into account the impression that kind of symbol would have for many of our fellow Americans, respect the decision Nike made and grateful for the conversation [that it is provoking]


And from Julian Castro:

I was glad to see Nike pull the Nike Betsy Ross American flag shoes.

“There are a lot of things in our history that are still very painful. The Confederate flag that still flies in some places and is used as a symbol…”

I’ll be checking throughout the day to see if any of the other candidates will courageously voice their disdain for the Betsy Ross flag. America needs to hear from them! I’m sure Joe Biden is preparing his comments as we speak:



What were all these candidates doing in 2013 anyway??

President Trump: Reports About Pursuing Citizenship Question Are FAKE!

Filed under: General — Dana @ 9:20 am

President Trump tweeting this morning:


Interesting, considering that Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said yesterday that the new questionnaires are already being printed – without the question:

“The Census Bureau has started the process of printing the decennial questionnaires without the question,” he said. “My focus, and that of the Bureau and the entire Department is to conduct a complete and accurate census.”
