Wheels Off News

Just got this email: "At this time we have wise co. deputy upside down in his patrol car, he sounds ok on his radio transmissions. From what I'm gathering he cannot get his seatbelt to unlock, so he's trapped for now!! He needs to think about the weight of his body pulling on the belt. Can you say POCKET KNIFE??>>>>>> UPDATE , another deputy, just told him to get his pocket knife out to cut the seatbelt, now he's free and OK, but there is a juvenile still trapped in a car, don't know if it's 2 vehicles or not.>>>>>> UPDATE #2>>>>> (9:10PM) (10-8) They have cleared the scene,(10-17), enroute to station 5(Wise regional) Does'nt sound like any life threatening injuries. Just some POP!! (Pissed off Police)>> Just heard that a female passenger of the other vehicle has opted out of going to Wise Reg. is now saying she wants to go to Denton instead.(She might have been a patient here before, ya think??)"

WELL I KNOW ON THE SCANNER WHEN THE MEDICS AND FIRE DEPT WAS CALLED OUT THEY SAID IT WAS A 1 VEHICLE ROLL-OVER WHICH MEANS THE CAR WAS UP-SIDE DOWN AT ONE POINT, AND BARRY WAS THERE IN PERSON HE SHOULD KNOW WHAT HE SEEN.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ha-ha, I am glad the police officer is ok.
For a minute, I was wondering if Andy came to the rescue of Barney.

WOW!! I had a scanner going and was hearing alot of it also. So there was no upside down car? No one with a seatbelt that would not release?? Another deputy did'nt say, "Get YOUR pocket knife and cut YOUR seatbelt". Maybe my scanner was on a different frequency for another county??

Hummmmm? Sounds as if this may be another cover-up. There was no police cars involed in this accident at all!! "That front end damage was caused by an armadillo earlier in my shift, I just did'nt have the time to report it!!!!"

Anonymous said...

All is well as I hear. The deputy was ok and will soon be released as I hear from a family member. I heard several people out at the scene talking and it sounded like they had it under control

Maybe Barry should move to Denton and play on his computer.

When I saw there had been another wreck, I first thought rock truck or drunken driver. We have had more than our share of accidents.

Yesterday, driving on Hwy 101 in Bridgeport, I passed the new liquor store. Three rock trucks and three old trucks were parked out front.

What was Bridgeport thinking when they passed the liquor election? True, you can go outside to buy it but why make it so convenient to stop by on your way to pick up another load of gravel or make it easy for worker on the job to get it.

The Bridgeport Police need to watch the number of trucks and workers and keep the Sherriff and DPS informed.

For me, I'm going to avoid that road and Bridgeport as much as possible. Will be shopping in Bowie to avoid the chance of getting killed or brain damage from a drunk worker or rock truck driver.

The voters in Bridgeport need to file a petition to reverse the terrible decision made by their leaders.

WOW!
People actually sit around listening to "the scanner" waiting for STUFF to go down? Perhaps it is just me, but I can not help but wonder, if YOU are not the one PERSONALLY involved with whatever is going down on the "the scanner" is it REALLY any of YOUR business?

It was God's plan that this all turned out ok even if nothing happened to turn out ok anyway um-kay.

This was in the Messenger, so it HAS to be true...

"A Wise County Sheriff's Deputy and a Rhome teenager were injured around 9 Thursday night in a two-vehicle accident on Farm Road 407, two miles east of U.S. 81/287. Deputy Josh McAlmond was eastbound on FM 407 en route to a burglary in progress call when he struck 17-year-old Emily Bray broadside. According to witnesses and DPS Trooper Rick Molina, McAlmond had his lights and siren on and had passed several vehicles that had pulled over. Bray, instead, attempted to turn left onto Kincannon Road which caused the two vehicles to collide. Bray's car rolled after striking a culvert. McAlmond was taken to Wise Regional Health System in Decatur, while Bray was transported to Denton Presbyterian Hospital. Both are in listed in good condition with non life-threatening injuries."

7:54 Are you really that dumb? If someone wants a drink they will stop ANYWHERE to get it. Why not have Decatur, Runaway Bay, Briar, and shoot...all of Fort Worth, etc. included in your rant to file a petition to reverse the terrible decision made by their leaders. Geeez

WOW mzchief
YOUR comment on "is it any of your business" is insane!! Its NO different than YOU getting on this web site and reading other peoples business and leaving comments!!

People DO listen to scanners. YOU can get one at Radio Shack.

Anonymous said...

The deputy's name is "McAlmond". Boy, I betcha with a name like that, you grew up mean or you did'nt grow up at all! Sounds like his pop worked for McDonalds and his mom made "Almond Joys"......and then one day mom accidently let some almonds fall on a burger patty, and they called it a "McAlmond",.... Sometimes I feel like a nut, sometimes I don't. But today I feel like a nut!!!!! I'm just glad everyone is going to be OK!!

That is the WCSO for you... they spelled "hear you", "here you" LOL, we need to have education requirements on law enforcement. I heard that Bport has several officers with Bachelor degrees ( that is a start).

Just because you have a college degree, doesn’t make you more intelligent then the rest of society. Maybe if you did your own research, you would have known that most police academies award 20 hours or so of college credit to the graduate. Further more there are several deputies with college backgrounds employed with the Wise County Sheriffs Office. Maybe you should move to Bridgeport and have them protect you with their college education.

12:54~

No, I think a college education does make you smarter and more well-rounded. See, my college graduate instincts make me smart enough to know that you are about to try and throw Bill Gates at me ~ "butbutbut Bill Gates never graduated from college." He was at least smart enough to get into Harvard. Someone who doesn't know the difference between "here" and "hear" isn't smart enough to graduate from DHS which, apparently, isn't to hard. I believe that a large part of being "smart" is being able to communicate effectively, both verbally and in written form. Listen to some of these yayhoos in Decatur talk some time. We don't realize how much we use the written English language and it is appalling how 80% of adults can't discern between "there," "they're" or "their." This is basic freshman English. If that 80% had taken a mandatory 2 years of composition in college, I guarantee they'd know the difference. But that's just one facet. You're also exposed to additional challenges and cultures, forced to develop your intellect, encouraged to become smarter and not just taught to pass a high school exit exam and drive a rock hauler for the rest of your (not "you're") life. I'll stipulate that there are many many smart and successful people that don't have college educations, but by and large, college degreed people are smarter, higher wage earners and generally more succesful than non-gollege graduates. That's why there are fewer of us than there are of you. If it was easy, then everyone would have a college degree.

Let the fireworks begin!

10:41 You'd better move to Bridgeport, the cop at 12:54 is letting you know that the deputies with college backgrounds employed with the Wise County Sheriffs Office can't protect you.

Another college educated dumbass!

To anon 7:54am. Just FYI because your comment had nothing to do with anything... those rock trucks along Hwy. 101 in Bridgeport are not stopped at the new "Beer" store like you quickly imagine. They are at the Mexican Taco Stand between the beer store and cingular....I am not saying they won't go back to the beer store later after the taco settles. Hello Denney Crane

Hey 12:54, you're right on the money, except you left out those people who can't tell the difference between to, too and two.

Check line 8 of your own rant. Yo used "to" where you should have said "too".

'...graduate from DHS which, apparently, isn't to hard.'

And what about your:
'...there are many many smart and successful people that don't have college educations...'

When you refer to people, you're supposed to use "who" instead of "that".

And there's:
"...generally more succesful than non-gollege graduates..."

Successful is misspelled, and well, "gollege" - I think you get the point.

Wow! You really blew that point, didn't you? So, what year did you graduate from DHS? Or did you?

By the way, I earned a gollege (edit college) degree!!

8:38 beat me to the punch on that one! I really believe this individual was trying to stir the pot like so many of you on this blog love to do. I am glad many of you take the bait...it makes for much more interesting reading. To everyone's credit...I imagine most people are typing very informally and for the most part are not spell checking or looking for obvious mistakes on this blog. Since you all do such a good job of this I don't feel the need to do it for myself. Please let me know where I have made uneducated choices in grammar and spelling. You don't have to look far to know that many institutions of higher education let buffoons graduate with a degree. I point to exhibit A...Yale! Their speech classes leave much to be desired don't you think?

FANTASTIC WORK ANONYMOUS. THE MONEY FOR YOUR EDITING DEGREE WAS WELL SPENT. I APPLAUD YOU ON YOUR ASSAULT AGAINST THE ARIAN INTELLECTUAL. I DONT HAVE A DEGREE (YET), BUT I FEEL MUCH SMARTER AFTER READING THAT ELITIST CROCK OF SHITE. HE SPEAKS DOWN TO WISE COUNTY CITIZENS AND DECATUR GRADUATES, YET HE'S ON THE WISE COUNTY BLOG. CURIOUS. HEY KNUCKLE HEAD!!! GO INVADE POLAND OR SOMETHING. GOOD DAY SIR!!!!!!!

I NEVER correct an adult's grammar/spelling/punctuation. However, THANK YOU for pointing out the whole "person=who/thing=that" association. It almost makes my ears bleed when I hear news anchors misuse "that" when referencing a "who."

EXCELLENT points. I rarely ahhh...uhhhh okaaaay NEVER proof read my comments prior to posting them.

Incidentally, I think you meant to say... "Doncha thank?"

I think we should all put on our sheepskins like loin cloths and battle it out as to who is the most educated, or maybe as one poster commented that this was a casual blog and that no posts are being sent back by BSG with red pen marks. Thank god.

I would argue that the most important education, as to the original content of this thread, would be DRIVERS EDUCATION!

Even though the deputy had his lights and siren activated, he would still be at fault by striking a vehicle turning left. I am sure that by the deputy’s reported age (25) he has about 2 years of experience. And as soon as those lights and siren come on, he is now looking through a drink straw (tunnel vision) trying to drive and save the world. I am happy to hear that neither the young girl nor the deputy were not seriously injured

Y'all should get Firefox - it spell checks for you. I've mentioned this before, but no one seems to listen. It's a heck of a lot safer and better than Internet Explorer anyway.

9:31 - if Nordstrom's, Macy's or Bloomingdale's sell scanners, MzCreep might purchase one. I can assure you she would never set foot in a Radio Shack.

1:31 - I think I might like to go to gollege. I've been to college - it was pretty fun, but I think gollege might be great. Where is one, and how do I apply? Can I drink and party as much in gollege as I did in college? That would be my only prerequisite.

I shop at Nordstrom because they carry Mark Jacobs clothing, shoes and accessories but have not shopped Nordstrom since early spring. I do not shop at Macy's and rarely at Bloomingdale's. As for Radio Shack, I was there just last week to pick up a new Jabra bluetooth headset for my cell phone. I would not use a scanner even if it were to be given to me at NO cost.

Obviously, you are again GUILTY of assuming MUCH while having FEW facts.

I am certain it makes you feel better about you being you to hate me for being me, so please keep at it. Not to mention, I get quite a chuckle EVERYTIME you let me know just how much me being me pisses you off.
