Pflugerville City Council member Mike Heath pulls back on his proposal to have the courts to severely punish anyone convicted of drugs or violent crimes.
Between 2016 and 2017, violent crime dropped by more than 20-percent. This year those crimes are down by 7-percent, and others scoffed at the idea that the council should get mixed up with the courts. Heath later apologized, saying he just wants to support first responders in the wake of the bombings.
