    Houston media outlets report 47-year-old Officer Terry Smith was shot in the back Tuesday night near the Midtown area after the driver he pulled over had already left. Houston Police Department Chief Charles McClelland said Smith underwent surgery at Texas Medical Center and is in stable condition.

    Capt. Dwayne Ready said Smith was putting away his ticket book when he heard a loud pop and felt some pain. Paramedics were called to the scene and found a gunshot wound in his back.

    Police say they do not know who shot Smith, but they say it is likely the shooter was in a passing vehicle. They don't believe the shooting and traffic stop are related.

    Prayers for the office's speedy recovery and that they catch the person who shot him.

    Most likely this was sparked from those who continue to call Police Terrorist and have the African American community all stirred up, or it could just be a random Police hater.

    It may have been caused by the police acting like terrorists and murdering unarmed black people. We won't know until they catch the person responsible.


    It just as well could be an angry white person trying to make it look like black people are shooting at police.:thumbs:
