Austin Man Kills self in front of FOX HQ NYC – Austin Police Chief to Blame?
Ex-Fox producer kills himself outside NYC headquarters – Police | 26 Jan 2015 | Police say a former Fox news television producer in Texas has shot himself to death outside company headquarters in midtown Manhattan. Forty-one-year-old Philip Perea died after the shooting at about 9 a.m. Monday outside News Corp. Authorities say Perea had been handing out fliers about Fox saying the company destroyed his career shortly before he shot himself outside the building that houses Fox News, the New York Post and The Wall Street Journal.
Video Posted by Philip Perea Before his death… Points to how FOX Austin was afraid of losing access to the APD Chief, and thus fired Perea. Quite revealing if true.

Those who know Art Acevedo say he’s a type-A personality on steroids.
He’s seemingly everywhere at once in Austin and became such a fixture in the community that some officers nicknamed him the “Rock Star.”
Acevedo still enjoys catching the bad guys. He regularly rides out in a patrol car and has made about 20 arrests since he became chief in the state’s capital in 2007.
In joining the California Highway Patrol in 1986, the Cuban-born Acevedo followed in the footsteps of his late father, who patrolled the streets of Havana before the family fled to the U.S. in the late 1960s. Acevedo worked his way up to the highest rungs of CHP, earning plaudits for combating gang violence in Los Angeles and respect for his willingness to take on police corruption.
Near the end of his highway patrol career, he ran into a rocky patch when a former girlfriend filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against him and the highway patrol. A federal judge dismissed the allegation of sexual harassment.
Acevedo also won a $1 million whistle-blower settlement against the highway patrol after complaining that he faced retaliation for, among other things, exposing improper conduct by top officials, including pension irregularities.
