Jack County: Law and Order


Getting reports that Jack County law enforcement arrested almost 20 people yesterday. That would be a one day record.

Let the question go forth: What is up?

Edit: Getting unofficial word that it was a round up for new drug related warrants (surprise.) Fifteen arrests. Four to go.

What's up will be our debt after these folks finish their trial,sentences, taking care of their families while they are in jail and then them them one way or another after they get out of the joint and are unemployable.
How much will all this cost?
Millions-easily.
The feeling you and your little snowflakes are safer?-priceless I guess.

Observed this morning. Deep concentration and repetitive frustration create sexual tension. Case in point, after about 30 minutes of working on an cash register, she was really talking dirty to it!

I know that is a lot of big words this early, but I saw it with my own two ears.

Legalize, tax, and regulate drugs. It, argueably(?), worked with alcohol.

it seems like just adding to the mix with pot, problem is: NO WAY BIG MONEY CAN CONTROL POT.. it is just a wild weed that anyone can grow..so unlike booze and painkillers, etc..the federal govt. will never be persuaded by logical arguments..there are plenty..here's the best one:NO ONE HAS EVER OVERDOSED FROM SMOKING POT...or dies, in fact just the opposite, there is proof..$$$$$$$$$

Well the other day at the Salon I was gettin a cut and curl and I heard all those people arrested were from one of those Church camps,you know,where things go on or somethin.

It's odd, but I have discovered that police don't arrest or otherwise bother me. I guess I've just not been in the wrong spot as they constantly go around randomly arresting law abiding folks in their homes and off the streets.

Never smoked pot, never will. Some say it is a gateway drug. So is driving 3 mph. Then you want to drive 10, 20, 40, 60, BAMMM! Guess no one should ever drive.

10:52 i think you hit the nail right on the head there cuz'..lets pray you don't find yourself in that wrong spot..like the innocent kid, if that were my son, i know where i would be..BG's office..!!!

11:45, ever notice how even "innocent" folks that get arrested somehow end up being around or involved with the "not so innocent", and don't seem to mind or do anything to avoid the connection. There is no dope in the brownies...but his "friends" were smoking when they made them...for example. Show me a place in the U.S. where people are simply rounded up and arrested at random. Being arrested is pretty darn avoidable.

11:45, 10:52 was being sarcastic. It's pretty obvious, isn't it?

I live in Jacksboro and some of the ones who got busted have been asking for it for a while. They're not victims of poor policy just stupid.

Smoking a little pot isn't that bad. Smoking a lot of pot is the problem. Kinda like drinking a little bit isn't so bad, but getting drunk leads to lots of bad stuff. Know anybody who does just a little meth?
You can't tell people how much they can inhale or snort or imbibe (that means drink), so the problem with drugs is people who have no self control. Yeah, that's the same problem with alcohol, too.
And in case you didn't catch my previous rant from the other day, here goes: Legalized pot would lead to pot-related traffic fatalities that would dwarf alcohol-related traffic fatalities. Baked behind the wheel is just as dangerous as drunk behind the wheel.
Refute that, NORML advocates!

Congratulations to all you smug people who think this could never happen to you or think we should throw away the keys after locking druggie "scumbags" up
Congratulations For:
Being white
Being raised in a loving home with good role models
For every opportunity that was handed to you on a platter
That you were born with a healthy brain that doesn't crave something(whatever that may be)to your detriment.
For all the people who have ever believed in you from the time of your birth until now
You were never "In the wrong place at the wrong time"
You were lucky enough to not suffer abuse at the hands of those actually responsible for your safety and well being
Your parents weren't addicts of any type
You can justify your actions well-You may not draw a sober breath from Friday evening until Sunday but,"Hey,at least I don't touch the weed"

Unless you were born black to a crack addled mother who sold you on the streets I don't want to hear about"I worked for this or that to get where I am today" These problems always stem from forces largely out of our control.

My smart Alec list above? Sure those folks may have been white or some of my points may affect some of them but, not the others but,you start checking these off and the preponderance of them will apply to the people in trouble.

Those that can smugly say I stay out of trouble blah,blah yada yada? It's biological,sociological and geographic luck nothing else that allowed you the ability to say "I worked hard to get where I am today"

I hate Phil "The Turtle" Gramm but I think he might have been talking about you, 1:41. I can't imagine how some people grow up and the disadvantages they suffer ... but bottom line, you do grow up and make your own choices. If you don't, there are consequences.

What about the people with biological, sociological or geographical bad luck who don't do drugs or get into trouble with the law?

Barry, who am I gonna argue with next week while the blog is on vacation? If I do this with somebody face-to-face, there's gonna be trouble. So I will either need your help as an attorney, or I will have to sue you for abandonment/alienation of connection.
Not to mention, if I don't get the "Hey now" pics and what not, I may have to go trolling for that kind of stuff myself. Would that be alienation of erection?

I'm just sayin'

Barry, did you photochop the picture of the Jack County Courthouse? Some how, it looks cleaner and brighter than it does in real life when I drive by it from Gawd's Country on my way to Mineral Wells here and there.

If you find yourself at a party where illegal activity is going on, I suggest you leave. If you are there, and know it's going on, then you are at a minimum, guilty by association. My advise would be to avoid people, places or whatever, where drug activity is rampant. Then, you won't be at the wrong place, at the wrong time. Whether you are doing the drugs or not, just like your mamma told you, "You are who you hang out with". it may not be right, but it's the way it is.

I'm guessing it was a drug bust at Greggo's.

1:41, sorry about the bad luck. Maybe when you get older and you are in your teens you can be accountable for your own actions and not have to blame others. Hopefully things will be better for you then. A LOT of great people today had very bad childhoods and managed to thrive. I wish you well!

Hey, 1:29PM and 3:17PM, it's almost "Happy Friday Night Fun Time" at Grace Fellowship.......don't be late. They'll talk about you behind your backs if you are, and silently accuse you of imbibing in illicit things. Enjoy yourselves.

1:29 Are you nuts? Millions of people smoke weed while driving or drive right after smoking. If marijuana related traffic fatalities were going to "dwarf" alcohol related fatalities...this would have already occurred. Fact is...marijuana is readily available to anyone that wants to smoke, even though it's illegal. The government has hired numerous experts whom have consistently agreed that the process of being arrested and/or ticketed for marijuana is far more harmful to a person and their family than actually using marijuana. Marijuana use has proven medical benefits...does alcohol? Does arresting a person for marijuana make that person decide to quit smoking? In most cases...No. Does the government know it should be legal...Yes. Can the government control it...No. People that smoke will continue to
purchase pot the same way they always have. The logical argument to legalize marijuana far outweighs the opposition. Period. Research it.

1:41 - I HAVE worked hard to get where I am today. Only 3 people in my entire family all the way through great-grandparents ever graduated from college. My mom has had 5 husbands, and I wasn't raised by a one of them. I WORKED my way through college, and now have a decent job with benefits and retirement.

So, get off your high horse, and don't tell me I've had it rosey. Sometimes it's what you make of what little you've got that matters.

Nothing was handed to me on a platter. We had a one-income family of 5. I started working before I could drive at $2 an hour.

And, oh yes, I've suffered abuse, plenty of it - the physical kind- tha bad stuff. And, mom did her share of drugs, too.

So, I'll say "thanks" to your "congratulations." And, I'll bet there are many more out there just like me. Congratulations to you, too.

6:12..THANK YOU SO MUCH!! but i'm sorry, you'll never convince the BILL O'REILYS of the world, even though they will not back up their rhetoric with facts..makes me wonder about their motives..why aren't they crusading to have alcohol and tobacco outlawed..scientifically proven to be harmful to health and society..It's really the federal govt. that imposes their will on states rights..that needs fixin!!!
