Criminal cases in South Texas are unraveling because of a Texas Ranger’s suspension after the Uvalde shooting

  Criminal cases in South Texas are unraveling because of a Texas Ranger’s suspension after the Uvalde shooting After the Texas Department of Public Safety suspended Texas Ranger Christopher Ryan Kindell, one of hundreds of officers who responded to the May 24 mass shooting, felony cases he investigated are in jeopardy and experts have questioned the justification for his suspension.On the phone, Mitchell had a bombshell revelation: Christopher Ryan Kindell, the Texas Ranger who’d led the investigation of Cutter’s client, had been suspended while the Texas Department of Public Safety — the agency that oversees the Rangers — investigated his role in the law enforcement response to the horrific mass shooting at Robb Elementary School that left 19 students and two teachers dead.

According to Mike Klis, part of Gregory's appeal included explaining the reason he got so frustrated. Per the report, Gregory said he and his teammates knew that a loss might result in head coach Nathaniel Hackett getting fired - and he was frustrated because he wants to win for him.

Whether or not the appeals board factored that explanation into overturning the suspension and reducing the punishment to a fine, it clearly didn't hurt his case. Ultimately, his passion didn't help Hackett either.

The Broncos fired Hackett on Monday following their 11th loss of the season. He was axed without even getting to finish his first year at the helm.

One unit that has mostly been doing the heavy lifting for the Broncos this season is the defense. In their first nine games they allowed more than 20 points only once.

Unfortunately, having the league's last-ranked offense made the strength of the defense moot. They've scored more than 16 points only four times all season. They're 2-9 in those games.

Randy Gregory may not have a future in Denver with the new regime that's set to come in next season.

But he still shouldn't have let things get to the point of throwing punches.
