ENOUGH ALREADY!! Talk about pointless saturation. You act as if he were somehow more important than any other dead citizen. He is not. He is simply one more human who has made his last mistake. Anybody got an idea how much public money has been spent on this orgy of fake public sentiment? However much it was, it was truly wasted.
yea you must not have an officer in your family or in any way be close to the people that put their lives on the line for your safety.
10:27Respect the DEAD! You must have been arrested a time or ten to feel the way you do? This man deserves R-E-S-P-E-C-T! Maybe his daddy dismantled your M-E-T-H-L-A-B!!!!!! GET OVER IT ASSHOLE!!!
10:27, Wise County isn't a big county, a lot of people know a lot of people. I'm sure that Barry, having practiced in this county for a while as a former DA and as a defense attorney, has dealt with Wes or his family before, therefore it is something close to him. He also realizes it is something close to many in this county.
TO ANONYMOUS 10:27 PMWHAT DO YOU DO FOR A LIVING? I'M SURE IT SOMETHING REAL SAFE LIKE LIVING OFF OF WELFARE! OFFICERS ARE NOT ORDINARY CITIZEN'S NOR ARE THEY ORDINARY HUMAN'S. YOU MAY MOCK LAW ENFORCMENT BUT THAT IS PROBABLY BECAUSE YOU’RE SOME WORHTLESS SCUMBAG LEACHING OFF OF THE REST OF THE GOOD HARD WORKING SOCIETY MEMBERS. YOU PROBABLY ALSO ONE OF THE FIRST ONE'S TO CALL THE SAME LAW OFFICERS THAT YOU SO OBVIOUSLY DESPISE WHEN YOUR NEIGHBOR' MUSIC IS TOO LOUD OR HIS DOG IS BARKING. HAVE YOU EVER HAD TO GO INTO A DARK BUILDING IN THE DEAD OF NIGHT BECAUSE SOME OTHER LEACH HAS BROKE INTO IT TO STEAL SOMTHING THEY CAN TURN INTO DOPE? HAVE YOU EVER GONE TO SOME ONES HOUSE BECAUSE YOU HAVE RECIEVED A 911 THAT SOME ONE HAS BEEN BEATING ON SOMEONE ELSE, AND OH YEAH THEY ARE INTOXICATED AND HAVE MULTIPLE FIREARMS? OR HAVE YOU EVER HAD TO SCRAP UP SOMEONE'S LOVED ONE OFF OF ONE OF OUR COUNTY HIGHWAYS BECAUSE A DRUNK KILLED THEM AND THEN HAVE TO GO BACK AND LOOK THEIR MOTHER/FATHER OR HUSBAND/WIFE IN THE EYE AND RUINE THEIR WHOLE LIFE WITH ONE UNFORGETABLE MESSAGE AND THEN STAY THEIR WITH THEM AS LONG AS THEY NEED YOU. NO, I'LL BET YOU HAVE NOT DONE ANY THESE THINGS, BUT I HAVE HAD TO DO EACH AND EVERYONE OF THESE AND THINGS AND SO DID WES HARDY AND ALL THE OTHER LAW ENFORCMENT OFFICERS OUT THERE. WE WILLL CONTINUE TO DO THESE THINGS BECAUSE WE CARE ABOUT PEOPLE EVEN YOU. I DID NOT HAVE THE GOOD FORTUNE TO PERSONALY KNOW WES HARDY BUT I KNOW HIS CHARACTER AND THE TEARS I SHED FOR HIM AND HIS FAMILY AT HIS FUNERAL WERE NOT FAKE PUBLIC SENTIMENT!
To 10:27...Obviously, Officer Hardy REMAINS more important in the hearts of the THOUSANDS of people who grieve his loss than perhaps you ARE in the hearts of even a handful of people while you draw breath.Due to my family's long history of Asperger's Syndrom, I personally understand you being incapable of showing empathy for others, however there is NO excuse other than your bad manners for you NOT allowing others to show smypathy. It is either ignorance or arrogance that keeps you from being able to express gratitude. The death of a peace officer, firefighter or a soldier is "MORE important" than the death of a corporate CEO, truck driver, teacher, lawyer, homemaker, grocer, or a doctor is because peace officers, firefighters and soldiers put themselves in harms way in an attempt to make the world in which we live a safer and better place. WHEN was the last time you risked YOUR safety or life for the wellbeing of a RANDOM STRANGER especially one like yourself who does not realize or appreciate the sacrifice being made? If you are STILL incapable of understanding why the death of Officer Hardy was indeed "...somehow more important than any other dead citizen." then your lack of gratitude is due to arrogance.Should your lack of gratitude truly be due to arrogance then make certain the next time you NEED a peace officer or firefighter to NOT bother to call one, since in YOUR mind they are of NO more importance than any other citizen.
Anon 10:27 You are truly a heartless individual with no sense of moral decency. May you find God and become a Christian.Thank you Barry for posting this information about Wes. It means a lot to his friends and family. Evidently some people do not understand the sacrifices that police officers and firefighters make on a daily basis, the stress and danger they deal with, and the time spent away from their families (i.e. weekends, holidays, nights, etc).Anon 10:27 Please don't make a heartbreaking situation any worse. I know it would be different if it was your family member or friend.
ok 10:27, i've had enough of you, you ignorant, meth cooking S.O.B! Just because you have a chip on your shoulder for the police busting your lab. Quit bad mouthing and being such an ASSH*LE!He died in the line of duty for all we know trying to stop a dipsh*t like you who deserves to be behind bars.He had the guts to get up and put his life on the line everyday. While you probably work at McDonalds, because with your record, thats the only job you can get. I'm sick to death of hearing how overdone the funeral was. If you were half the person that Wes Hardy was, Maybe you will remembered in such a way. But when you die in one of your meth-lab explosions, the only ones standing over your grave will be your Parents, only to see what a disappointment they raised.Jackasses like you are the reason we need good police now more than ever. Talk about being more of an important citizen, your mouth puts you at the bottom of the citizen list. WORTHLESS PRICK!
I hear what you're saying 10:27. U.S. soldiers who die at the hands of Anti-American extremists over in Iraq do not receive no where near this type of treatment. This display demonstrates 1) how not real busy this many police officers are on any given day , 2)How THEY view their importance our society and 3) make THEMSELVES feel proud.Next time someone from north Texas dies in Iraq, let's see if the same folks put together a funeral procession like this. After all, our soliders lay their lives on the line too.
Good points 10:42. Though we all grieve for Mr. Hardy and his family, this does seem a bit overblown when compared the sacrifices our soldiers have made for our country.
10:42..... Thank you. It was starting to look like a lynching was on its way, huh? I felt my comment was concise and polite, at least as compared with the myriad diatribes launched in response. After following this blog for a few months and occasionally commenting on a subject, I've made some observations about the people who participate in this forum. 1) Seemingly preoccupied with meth labs. No I don't have one, nor do I know anyone who does or ever has. But the fact that they are apparently so pervasive in your world leads me to believe that many of your county residents have done a very poor job of establishing a civil society amongst yourselves. All things considered I am proud to not be related to anyone there. Even more relieved not to have had to try and raise my children in such an environment. 2) Discourse among you is a rude, intolerant sort of shouting match where anyone who doesn't agree with your assesment of a topic is a dipshit, asshole scumbag, SOB, weenie etc. I'm pretty sure that if your aim were to persuade another of the validity of your perspective such tactics are counter-productive and in fact only serve as an indicator of your own lack of manners. Something you will have to learn in order to get yourselves out of the past century is that everyone's point of view is worth considering, and will necessarily have good and bad elements. Disregarding other people entirely is what has our national political situation at such an unproductve impasse. 3) The quality of grammar in many comments is so substandard as to be laughable. Do many of you simply go straight from high school football to armchair quarterback. It certainly doesn't appear that many have engaged in any stimulating academic exercise lately (if ever). As regards who I am personally and my value as a citizen compared to people in law enforcement,the constitution doesn't have a scale to address that, neither did Jesus. Methinks the likes of you aren't qualified to define that either. I have a son who is a nuclear engineer in the Navy, a daughter who is a pharmacist, and two minor children, both of whom are honor students. None have ever drank, smoked, used any illegal drugs, or ever been in any trouble whatsoever. None are overweight (how 'bout yours?). None are TV junkies, as we don't and never have even owned one of those boxes of iniquity. All my children, as well as me and my wife are fluent in two languages. The older ones each know a third language; one French, one German. Lots of you who have chosen to attack me have yet to master one, and probably never will. But you all follow "The Simpsons" and "American Idol" as if that had any relevance to improving mankind's standing on this earth. I can assure you the opposite is true. In closing, I would like to express my thanks to all of you for the entertainment your ignorance and bigotry provide. And it's free!
There are some very hateful, assuming assholes that post on this blog, and I'm not talking about 10:27PM. Some of you folks should look into anger management. Sheesh.
10:27I'm calling bullshit on your model American Family. None of your children have ever drank alcohol, smoked or done drugs. Yeah right and I'm the queen of the Nile. And everyone in your family is super smart and knows many languages.Well my two oldest children are nuclear biologist who also work part time as neuro surgeons. My youngest who is three, single handedly found the cure to cancer AIDS and gum disease. I am also proud to announce that he will be accepting his second Nobel peace prize soon.As far as I go I’m just a dumb ex-marine who is now a dumb cop. And I can not for the life of me understand why someone would belittle anyone’s death or those who morn the loss of there life.You wonder why so many cops were present to show their gratitude for his life. I wish I could explain it to you. Are you willing to die, be injured or place yourself in danger to help a complete stranger? I doubt it! Your best bet is to keep you pompous mouth shout and appreciate the fact that no matter who you are or what you do the Police, Firemen and Paramedics will do all they can to help you in your time of need.As far as the military goes, I was in the Marines for 8 years and I to am ashamed that the public does not give them the respect and honor they deserve. But I’m still not sure as to how that would even relate to this sad event.
Look out 2:41, there's one standing below you now. And it appears he has a badge and a gun. That's a comforting thought.
Sef-professed dumb cop, your spelling is atrocious. Your assumption that everyone's lying iscynical. Your comprehension of 10:27's remarks is inaccurate. Your uncontrolled anger in this discussion is pointless.
Face it folks, Wes fuc%ed up and now he's dead. It can happen to any of us. Quit being so hateful, judgmental and ASSuming while showing your compassion for him. 10:27PM hit the nail on the head, and it is really pissing some of you off. Ya'll are so pathetic, but I do find it funny. I agree......."I would like to express my thanks to all of you for the entertainment your ignorance and bigotry provide. And it's free!"
To 10:42...EXCELLENT point, which is why I continually include soldiers among those who should be shown RESPECT for the SACRIFICES they, peace officers and firefighters make in an ATTEMPT to assure the public's safety. Since YOU believe soldiers should be shown the SAME level of RESPECT as was Officer Hardy, EXACTLY how many funerals have YOU attended and/or memorial gifts have YOU given to soldiers who have died or been injured? I thought as much. The NEXT time you want to condemn people for the manner in which THEY have elected to show respect perhaps YOU should do something other than piss and moan. Get off YOUR ARSE and show respect rather than be spiteful and jealous of those who have shown RESPECT.The ONLY thing wrong with the level of RESPECT that was shown to Officer Hardy is that the SAME level of respect is NOT shown to ALL fallen heroes. However, it does indeed seem, even by the standards of heroes, as though Officer Hardy conducted his life in an EXEMPLARY manner. Clearly, Officer Hardy EARNED every ounce of RESPECT he was shown.It is WRONG to limit and begrudge the RESPECT shown to one hero just because not ALL heroes receive the same amount of RESPECT.You sound like the democrats who want to REDISTRIBUTE "wealth" rather than CREATE wealth in that you seemingly want to redistribute RESPECT rather than CREATE respect for ALL people who have EARNED RESPECT.If you are not a democrat I certainly do apologize for having called you one. ************************************To 2:32...I recognize The Blog is an informal place where people from all parts of the globe and various walks of life COMMUNICATE their opinions. I ascribe to the belief that so long as their opinions are COMMUNICATED in a manner sufficient to convey their ideas I do not concern myself with the accuracy of the grammar used on The Blog. Since I type approximately 90-100 wpm and do not bother to proofread my comments, feel free to break out YOUR red pen and proofread my comments, especially if that is what it takes to make you FEEL superior.In regard to your blithering attempt to PROVE your righteousness, I STRONGLY suggest you climb down from your high horse because YOU are the one who started this barroom brawl and are among those throwing verbal punches. Keep in mind, when you have flung feces with the howler monkeys you cannot stop flinging and DECLARE you are NOT dirty and it be the truth. YOU most certainly smell of feces.You have for the FIRST time in my life made feel uncomfortable for being HIGHLY educated, multi lingual and having produced a BRILLIANTLY successful child. Achieving the same level of success as a person of YOUR character and mindset is TRULY unsettling and a blow to my self-esteem. In light of your proclamation of having achieved intellectual and moral superiority I stand by my assertion that your LACK of GRATITUDE for those who WILLINGLY risk their safety for the public good is due to YOUR arrogance. You would do well to acquire a television and listen to SOMETHING other than the voices in YOUR head.I most certainly hope you get ALL that someone of your ilk DESERVES.
What kind of weed wacker did you buy?
mzchief, you are in fact correct in that I am the one who started this brawl. AND i DiD iT on pURpose just to HUmour meself ReadIN the o sO predICRABLe respoces from folKs lik you. Hell it is free and iwasGETiNG a liTTle bored With the abcense of oregenal ENteresteNG stuff Like bArrY normally posts. Worked like a charm I now shall retiRE FROM here as i am only half way through my fotrh reading of War and Piece(This week) Asperger Syndrome? I think you could get that cured by any reutable proctologist
Anon 3:28: why do you find a good family so hard to believe? Is yours dysfunctional? A common affliction certainly but definitely not omnipresent. I'm sorry that your children drink and smoke, as you seem to suggest. Perhaps better parenting would fix that. Worse yet, if they simply applied themselves, they could also be considered "super smart", as you so ignorantly suggest that other people cannot be. Oh well, the world is full of people like you. It makes the "super-smart" people look all the better.
LOL 10:27 for stirring the pot! Look how ignorant and pathetic everyone is in response to your post. Hilarious!
To 2:14...At NO point has 10:27 indicated their comments did not reflect their sincere opinion, thus they REMAIN an arrogant douche-bag which is why YOU are so eager and PERFECT to ally with 10:27.
10:27 remember do unto to others before they have a chance to do unto you so shut up mr hardy was a great man and a great cop and a fellow rider this was a great tragedy and people like you should show respect i have witnessed alot of disrespect and i think that people like you should be beaten with a cat of nine tails aong other things SO GET RESPECTFUL OF GET OUT OF THIS STATE AND THIS COUNTRY YOU PINKO COMMI CHARLIE SUPPORTING IDIOT
Thank You mzchief.
just curious 4:56???????? Are you a democrat or a republican?
anon 347 from what has been eleased he cleared the intersection and proceeded and the car came around and didnot yeild the right of way to the emergancy vehicle with lights and siren on and hit him i will mind you to look at al the facts the screw up here was on the part of the person he was pursing and the person that wasnt paying attention while they were driving which is the number one cause of accidents so chew on that for a little while and remember to get the facts before you open your mouth and speak and i hope that the next time you are pulled over the cops treat you the same way you have treated mr. hardy here
anon 6:12 i am an texan and a biker and as you can see people like anon 10:27 reall hack me off as for rep or dem i am neither i chose the candiates who will best defend the rights ven to us in the constitution and that is who i support
which rights 1:16? the ones about freedom of expression or those having to do with assholes beating the crap out of people they don't agree with?
To 4:16Way to go! You showed 10:27It’s amazing that a mental moron like yourself would even attempt to enter into a battle of wits.7:09You win. Your way to smart for me, I’m sitting here in disbelief that you can even read. I am further blown away with your Dionne Warwick like powers. Only with your great in sight could I have ever faced my failures as a parent. It deeply hurts to look within and realize that my make believe children with their make believe degrees and awards have a drug and alcohol problem. I thank you for helping me see the truth. Now that I know what is wrong, I can possibly change my parenting and make a difference.
