Carolyn Beck from the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission sends along official word this evening that the agency will release the findings of its second and final investigation into the Rainbow Lounge raid on Thursday, Nov. 5. TABC most recently had said its second investigation, which deals with agents’ use of force against patrons injured in the raid, wouldn’t be released until mid-November. Tonight’s announcement means TABC will release the use-of-force report on the same day that the Fort Worth Police Department unveils findings from its investigations into the Rainbow Lounge raid. TABC released its first investigation, which dealt with policy violations by employees, in August. All in all, this should make for a long, interesting day on Thursday, but we plan to have full coverage in Friday’s Voice if it kills us.
