BEXAR COUNTY D.A. SUSAN REED REFUSES TO PROSECUTE ALLEGED AMATEUR SMUT FILMMAKER

What could lead an entire District Attorney’s office, the size of the Bexar County District Attorney’s office, to recuse itself from the prosecution of an individual charged with the improper sexual filming of his stepdaughter? We don’t know specifically because we could not find an official public statement explaining to the taxpayers of Bexar County the reasons for punting on the prosecution of Christopher Anthony Flores, charged in April of 2014 with the improper sexual filming of his stepdaughter. Allegedly, Mr.

CCM PRESENTS: NOT THAT LONG AGO IN NEW BRAUNFELS

In the halls of New Braunfels High School, in the parking lots of the same, the cafeteria or actually anywhere on school grounds when I was attending in the late 70’s, Spanish was prohibited.  I think the first time I was dragged into the Principal’s office for the violation of “Speaking Spanish”, it was because I had called my food by its name, out loud and to a friend who from across the table was asking me what I had brought for lunch.  The cafeteria was a rather loud place, so when I responded to him that my mother had packed “tacos” for me, it was with enough force to ensure that he co

COURT SUSPICIOUS THAT TEXAS GOP REDISTRICTING DONE TO DIVIDE CHICANO VOTE

Texas Republicans have been dragged to Court over their redrawing of Texas’ Election Districts, a case in which they are accused of drawing these election districts specifically to divide the massive number of new Chicano voters, which of course they refer to as Hispanic or Latino

MAKE EXECUTIONS PUBLIC

CCM plans to introduce reenactments of each and every crime leading to a scheduled execution in Texas in the days preceding it. We will attempt to interview the Prosecution and Investigators involved in each case as well as those persons who believe in the innocence of the accused, if any. We have already requested interviews with Death Row inmates facing an upcoming execution date and have conducted one of those with Cleve Foster, who recently received his third stay of execution from the U.S. Supreme Court.

GAMBLING ZONE ON THE MEXICAN BORDER (preview August issue CCM)

With the debt-ceiling debate apparently at an end, save the House of “Lack of Representatives” acting to block the passage of the announced “deal”, our great Nation needs to do what it has done since it was created, that is come up with something big for ourselves that gets us back into a “boom”.   Hopefully it is not like the packaged mortgage contracts of the Bush era that were sold to investors worldwide, gave us a boom but then imploded and shook our economy to its’ core and was felt negatively throughout the world

By The Time I Get To Texas-Remembering Grandpa Chino

I'm always saying, "One of these days I'm
gonna go to El Paso, Texas and retrace my
family's steps".I want to visit the places they
had (if they're still there). I wanna visit the
movie theaters my grandma did when she'd
pass out pictures of herself to the boys she
thought were worthy. I want to check out Ft.
Bliss because my grandpa told me once that
he and his friends got into a fight there
during the time of the Zoot Suit Riots. This
story surprised the hell outta me because I
always thought my grandpa, Ignacio
Gonzalez was afraid of my grandma. How

J.T. Coldfire Band

Chicano Channel Magazine (CCM at chicanochannel.com) was officially launched with a party in San Antonio, Texas at a club called Area 31.  The band, J.T. Coldfire Band, found by the magazine’s founder and creative director while enjoying the music and booze on the infamous 6th street in Austin, Texas, rocked Area 31 to its core and led many guests to later comment that it was the best band they had seen in a long time. Many have gone as far as saying that J.T.

GIRL IN A COMA

These Chicanas from San Antonio are like San Antonio in a way, in that they, like the City itself, are definitely major players in their respective arenas. They also both have that hometown feel and genuine attitude that makes them real. Every time we have covered them we end up getting carried away with the music and forget that we are there to write an article about the show.
