JUDGE JULIE HARRIS KOCUREK SHOT
Texas Judges In Crosshairs
by G. Flavius Margaritos, CPW New Service
It was in Texas that Judge John Howland Wood was gunned down in his driveway in San Antonio like the recent attack on Judge Julie Harris Kocurek in Austin. Wood's killer was Charles Harrelson, father of actor Woody Harrelson who in the film based on Cormac McCarthy's No Country For Old Men plays the American trying to track down Anton Chigurh, a name that sounds suspiciously like Lee and Jimmy Chagra who had hired Charles Harrelson, the heads of a Lebanese family living in Juarez, Mexico and importing along the porous Mexican/American border both drugs and weapons. The death of the Judge Wood cleared the way for the ascent of Judge William Sessions not only to Wood's bench in San Antonio, but to the Director of the FBI under Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush. The Travis County District Judge, Julie Harris Kocurek, had overseen cases that involved Governor Rick Perry and even embattled U.S. Congressman Tom DeLay a powerful leader in the Bush Administration's assault on fair representation.
“I would want to do a thorough background check on Mrs. Kocurek’s family history in Houston, not only of the cases she was handling in Travis County. Perhaps there is some history there that can shed light on this vicious attack. I was reading her mother’s obituary in the Houston Chronicle and noticed that the Judge has in the family the name Sacco and Listi. Being Italian myself, there is nothing inherently unsafe or evil about a family name….well, Hitler might be an exception and Mussolini has had problems, but Hitler was German and you have to remember that Johnny Roselli who had a big part in the Mafia’s associations with the CIA to kill the freedom fighter turned despot, Fiedel Castro, changed his name from Sacco to Roselli (born Flippo Sacco in 1905), presumably after the Italian name Sacco included the terrorist bombers Sacco and Vanzetti.
Even since Peter Brewton of the Houston Post wrote the book The Mafia, CIA and George Bush in 1992, which linked the Iran-Contra network to the 1980’s S&L crisis with many of the Iran-Contra operators cutting their teeth on Operation Zapata, the CIA backed Bay of Pigs invasion, Houston has been ground zero for all manner of societal misfits. They can hide within the sludge pockets of the oil refineries and back water bayous kind of like New Orleans for Carlos Marcello’s guys,” said Rocco Vanzetti Sacco from his porch in Kemah, Texas near the Houston Ship Channel. Some of them live quite openly amid Houston's freewheeling society based on fossil fuels and carbon chugging earth-killing pollutants," said Rocco Vanzetti Sacco.
