New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - March 23, 1983, New Braunfels, Texas 8A New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung Wednesday, March 23,1983 Texas lawmakers get low consumer marks WASHINGTON (AP) - Members of the Texas congressional delegation generally received low marks on their consumer voting records last year in a study released today by the Consumer Federation of America, the nation’s largest consumer organization. Sen. John Tower, a Republican, was one of four senators who qualified as “consumer zeros” for failing to cast a single vote for consumer interests in the study of 14 key Senate votes on consumer issues in 1962, the organization said. Sen. Lloyd Bentsen, a Democrat, voted 36 percent of the time for consumer interests during the 14 votes, it said. US Rep. Tom Loeffler (R-Hunt), whose district includes Comal County, received a rating of 8 percent. Only four House members from Texas received ratings of more than 50 percent from the federation. The federation ratings were based on a study of what it regarded as 14 key votes in the Senate and 13 in the House on legisation affecting consumers. Included were proposals lowering interest rates on mortgages, scaling back tax cuts for the wealthy and for corporations, providing funds for low-income energy assistance, requiring used car dealers to inform customers of car defects, extending unemployment benefits and eliminating telephone and cigarette tax increases. In each case, the federation interpreted whether a "yes” or “no” vote on the issue was in the consumer interest and used the interpretation to draw its overall ratings. It was the second time this year that members of the Texas congressional delegation had been given generally low ratings by a consumer organization. A similar study released in February by Congress Watch, founded by Ralph Nader, reported that during 40 key votes last year only three members of the Texas delegation voted more than half the time in favor of what the organization regarded as consumer interests. In releasing its evaluation, the Consumer Federation said that the overall Senate rating was 44 percent and the overall House rating 47 percent. Among those rated were Texas’ two senators and all 24 House members who represented the state last year. Three of the House members rated are no longer in Congress and the House delegation has since expanded to 27 members. Following are the percentages that each House member from Texas voted in favor of the consumer interest, as interpreted by the federation, during the House 13 votes studied last year: District I: Sam B. Hall Jr., D-Marshall, 31 percent; 2. Charles Wilson, D-Lufkin, 31 percent; 3. Jim Collins, R-Dallas, 0 percent; 4. Ralph Hall, 1> Rockwall, 23 percent; 5. Jim Mattox, D-Dallas, 38 percent; 6. Phil Gramm, R-College Station, 15 percent; 7. Bill Archer, R-Houston, 8 percent; 8. Jack Fields, R-Humble, 8 percent; 9. Jack Brooks, D-Beaumont, 46 percent; IO. Jake Pickle, D-Austin, 46 percent; ll. Marvin Leath, D-Marlin, 8 percent; 12. Jim Wright, D-Forth Worth, 62 percent. 13. Jack Hightower, D-Vemon, 38 percent; 14. Bill Patman, D-Ganado, 31 percent; 15. Kika de la Garza, D-Mission, 46 percent; 16. Richard White, D-E1 Paso, 31 percent; 17. Charles Stenholm, D-Stamford, 15 percent; 18. Mickey Leland, D* Houston, 85 percent; 19. Kent Hance, D-Lubbock, 38 percent; 20. Henry B. Gonzalez, D-San Antonio, 77 percent; 21. Tom Loeffler, R-Hunt, 8 percent; 22. Ron Paul, R-Lake Jackson, 8 percent; 23. Abraham Kazen, D-Laredo, 62 percent; 24. Martin Frost, D» Dallas, 69 percent. Officers'turn Defense underway in Algiers 7 case DALLAS (AP) — The final witnesses in the federal civil rights trial of seven New Orleans police officers prepared to testify as the defendants continued denying charges of conducting brutal interrogations following the killing of a patrolman. Five more defense witnesses were expected to be called today and prosecutors said they would put on two rebuttal witnesses before both sides begin presenting closing arguments. Detective Dale Bonura, one of the seven defendants, testified Wednesday that an alleged police brutality victim was afraid to answer questions about a patrolman’s killing but he knew something about the slaying and wanted to get it off his chest. But Bonura denied he or his partner, Stephen Farrar, beat or threatened any of the men they questioned. Five men who lived in New Orleans’ predominantly black Algiers section testified they were threatened with guns, beaten, stomped, kicked and abused during interrogations about the killing of white patrolman Gregory Neupert. Another defendant, Detective Thomas R. Woodall, testified that he heard Farrar and Bonura question one of the alleged brutality victims, Robert Davis, but did not participate in the interview. Detective Richard LeBlanc, a third defendant, claimed he was not assigned to the case. Prosecutors contend the officers were criminally overzealous in pursuit of the killer of a fellow officer. Defense attorneys maintain the alleged victims lied about being beaten to hide their cooperation with police from people on the street. If convicted on the federal charges, Farrar, Bonura, detectives Woodall, LeBlanc and Ronald Brink,* Sgt. John McKenzie and Officer Stephen Reboul could be sentenced to up to IO years in prison and fined $10,000. Bonura said Tuesday that he and Farrar considered Davis a “possible vital link” in their investigation and said they wouldn’t beat a witness whose help they might need later in court. “You don’t press a witness that might break the case for you,” said Bonura. Instead, he said he and Farrar tried to win Davis’ trust. He said Davis was scared and nervous when they, acting on a tip from an anonymous caller, picked him up and questioned him about what he saw when Neupert was killed on Nov. 8,1980. “I believed he knew something but was afraid to say. You could see he wanted to get it off his chest but he was scared,” said Bonura. “Davis trusted us to a degree, still not enough to get involved,” he said. He said he and Farrar left the interview room and came back a short time later and found detective Oris Buckner, a black officer who has testified for the prosecution under a grant of immunity, yelling in Davis’ face. A short time later, Bonura said Davis told them he heard the shots that killed Neupert and saw a man run past him. He testified Davis said he knew the man only as Comanche. Comanche was a nickname for James Billy Jr., one of four people killed during a police crackdown in Algiers after the shooting death of Neupert. Bonura said Davis also gave them the name of Johnny Brownlee, a black man who alleges he was beaten by police. Bonura also denied beating Brownlee and said Brownlee told the officers he saw Comanche and another man at the police car. Woodall testified that he entered the interview room while Davis was being questioned, but only stayed 15 to 20 minutes. "I listened, made no comments, and shortly left the room," he said. Asked by defense attorney Walter Rothschild if he ever saw Davis again or participated in other interviews, Woodall said no. No charges were filed in connection with the four deaths during police raids that followed Neupert’s slaying. However, the controversy surrounding the crackdown prompted the resignation of Police Superintendent James Parsons. Tickets for drugs Drugs panel opposes bill AUSTIN (AP) - A House committee has OK’d a bill allowing police officers to give tickets for misdemeanor offenses — a bill that an anti-drug group says will lead children to believe that drug use, prostitution and homosexuality are condoned by the state. The Criminal Jurisprudence Committee voted 6-1 Tuesday in favor of an amended version of Rep. Bill Blanton’s bill. The revised version requires ticketed suspects to show up for booking within two days. Blanton, R-Farmers Branch, had called for a 10-day period. Although the bill does not reduce penalties, the Texas War on Drugs Committee argued the measure would give the appearance of condoning some drug offenses. “If you want to send a message to our kids that it’s OK to t drugs, that ifs not bad to be a homosexual, it’s all right to be a prostitute, then you need to pass this bill.” Rick Salwen of the War on Drugs Committee testified earlier this month. Bill would tighten insanity defense AUSTIN (AP) — A criminal defendant would have to be prove he was “severely” mentally ill and did not know his actions were wrong before a Jury could acquit him as insane under a bill cleared for the full Senate. The proposal, sponsored by Sen. Ray Farabee, D-Wichita Falls, was sent to the Senate floor on a 9-2 vote by the Senate Jurisprudence Committee on Tuesday. It would also allow judges to keep tabs on defendants found not guilty because of insanity. Farabee said he became interested in the subject after a jury in his district acquitted a woman who said she cut her child’s heart out because she thought the little girl was possessed. Under current law, a defendant can try to prove either that he did not know his actions were wrong or that he was incapable of conforming his behavior to the law in question — a fine line of difference, but one important to defense attorneys, many of whom had testified against BRAWNY DESIGNER OR ASST’D.

The two dissenting senators, Craig Washington, D-Houston, and Tati Santiesteban, D-El Paso, wanted to leave the two avenues of defense intact. The bill would allow juries to state that a defendant is guilty, but still acquit him as insane. It also would require the state hospital for the criminally insane at Rusk to notify the judge and prosecutor if a defendant acquitted due to insanity was going to be released. “It sets up alternatives to probation so we can keep up with persons who are found not guilty by reason of insanity to make sure they atay on their medication,” said Farabee. Farabee said he hoped to bring the bill to the floor next week. He said he had not gauged full Senate attitudes toward the proposal, but added optimistically, “I did pretty good here.” Plastic w/Shovei Assoiled coitus ^ pa .    im Sand Pails .    950    .......L$1.07ijm*i Easter Baskets , 'n .* 59C    o'"    “ 4 oz ABUD only Sheer to the Waist #5900 CUTEX Creme or Frost Nail Polish •, Asst d. shades Each 790 Diapers 32 a Toddler   $7.99 Hogg** Regular Pak Newborn 24 s Daytime 18 s Overnight U s Toddler 12'* Your Choice $2.98 CONDITIONING HAIR SPRAY 7 oz. $1.79 Sylvania Standard Bulbsl rMRMDVl Globes ee a _ 2 for 79c 50-100-150 watt Each 3-Way Globe $1.49 7 watt Globe Nightlite 2 p** Tit $1.29 Luden s Milk Choc Hollow f or Nabisco Speckled Jelly 49 Rabbits .. 20C-S3.09 Bird E99 • •    • • -830 Luden s Milk Choc.
