Meet Jimmie "Nookie" Hiners, a Dallas Blood Who's Now One of Texas' Most Wanted

Jimmie Jerome Hiners, aka Jimmie "Nookie" Hiners, is kind of an open book. The marijuana leaf tattooed on the front of his neck tells you that he really likes weed, probably too much. The word "Blood" on his left arm tells you that he claims affiliation with that particular street gang. His other ink -- the "KE-KE" on the right side of his chest, the "Juanita" and "YB" on his neck, the "POE" on the back of his left hand -- no doubt carry, or once carried, their own significance.

Hiners' criminal history is even easier to decipher. The 27-year-old has been picked up any number of times by Dallas police and has been convicted on a half dozen counts of burglary and one of car theft between 2002 and and 2008. That last time, he was sentenced to eight years in prison, but he was paroled after only three.

Hiners then enjoyed a remarkable year-long stretch of not getting charged with crimes. Then, his girlfriend left him.

According to court documents, Hiners and the woman, whom we won't identify other than to say that her name's not Juanita, had been living together for six months when she decided to go. She was at her sister's place when, on August 20, 2012, Hiners decided to try and persuade her to stay.

He showed up just as she was leaving and, after a brief shouting match, wrapped his arm around her neck and put her in a choke hold. He began dragging her toward the back of the apartment building, the pressure cutting off her air. When they were behind the building, he pulled out a silver handgun and pointed it at her head. "I'll kill you, bitch," he hissed. "I'll kill you."

He released her neck let her drop to the asphalt, where she lay gasping for air. But Hiners wasn't quite done. According to police, he grabbed her hair and dragged her across the parking lot until a couple of neighbors saw what was happening and yelled at Hiners to stop. He ran.

Hiners was later arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. He appeared in court on January 3, and entered a guilty plea. Then, he vanished. In April, the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles issued an arrest warrant for parole violation. Last month, Dallas County followed suit with an warrant of its own.

Yesterday, the Texas Department of Public Safety placed Hiners on the state's 10-most-wanted list. They're offering a reward of up to $10,000. He's considered armed and dangerous. Both his family and his last known address are in Dallas. He has, the DPS notes, "no record of gainful employment."

I sure am glad we have laws against felons owning firearms.  So, you know, felons can't use guns after they become convicts and hurt or threaten people with them.  Given their effectiveness, makes me all sorts of supportive of more laws restricting guns of all sorts.

Maybe if we called it retro-active abortion, democrats could get behind expanded executions.

"He's just a Poe boy from a Poe family..."

he pleaded guilty to aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in January at a court...then a warrant was issued for his arrest in April. Um call me mindless, but if you are in a courtroom and plead guilty to you know, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, why on earth are you not handcuffed there and then and taken to jail?? He did not plead guilty to speeding or parking tickets, what he plead guilty to was a pretty serious offensive just to be sent back out on the street until the sentencing hearing.

@jamessavik 

Or vice-versa, if we called it pre-emptive execution, conservatives would probably get in line to support abortion.

Amirite?

@whocareswhatithink Because it seems that the Criminal Justice system gives more rights etc to FELONS & others than they do to Speeders & Class C Traffic Offenders. 

Who knows, maybe they were trying to keep the Jail Population down for one of their Warrant Roundups where they Jail you if you cant afford to pay for a simple Traffic Fine with all the add-on fee's etc.
