I Hope There Is More To This Story

The new Denton Police twitter feed is a little addicting. This poor girl was arrested in the middle of the night a few hours ago for speeding. Speeding? It's one of two traffic violations you cannot be arrested for in Texas. The other is "Open Container."

I hope she has you to represent her. Perhaps she is returning military and is possibly a right winger...we can't be too careful.

Maybe it was actually reckless driving? I hope they didn't arrest her for speeding.

Interesting. Using shame as a deterrent for breaking the law? I noticed others who were arrested for speeding also had a warrant. Maybe she had a warrant but it didn’t get posted on the web site.

Maybe she was arrested for being "smokin" hot in a no "smokin" area.

They could get a better camera with all that "9-11 money".

You have to be given the opportunity to sign a citation for speeding, but if you refuse, you can go to jail. (Section 534.004 Transportation Code).

Why Doesn't Wise County Get One of These Twitter Pages!? How Fun Would That Be!?!?!

For a lawyer, you're quite the moron (I'll chalk that up to your liberal bent). The police are authorized to use deadly force to enforce our laws. If you spit on the sidewalk (and put up a fight once confronted by the police) you could legally end up dead. Parking ticket? Don't pay and then resist when they come for you...dead. You get it now?

Ya know, Barry....for an attorney you make some bone-headed statements at times. The Tx Transportation Code says speeding violators must be given a chance to sign a promise to appear.... not that they can't be arrested. If they refuse to sign the promise to appear, then they can (and in my opinion SHOULD) be arrested.

OK, I did a very unscientific scan on the twitter thing and here's what I found:

Two out of two thefts were blacks

Three out of four marijuana possessions were blacks.

Do those folks just seem to have more bad habits than average?

And was electing one of them POTUS really such a great idea?

I think she needs her little bottom spanked....and I'm just the man for it.

As for the blacks taking up 80% of our prisons....take it easy on them....we must first, look at what we, as white folk, have done to push them into a corner. Gearge Bush and other meanies have caused the coloreds to break the law. It's our fault.

Yeah Barry, I wonder if she refused to sign the ticket (in which case she would have to be taken into custody). And as to 1:33 PM, no the police are NOT authorized to use deadly force the way you describe it--for ANY infraction of the law. They are only authorized to use it to the extent it is necessary and authorized. Yes, their use of force can be found to be excessive, which can get them into trouble. Before you start "hatin'" on Barry, you have a desperate need to get educated (or maybe just talk about things that you know about--which should be very little)!

1:33pm check Tennessee v. Garner for use of force standards.

If you refuse to sign the ticket you can be arrested and then have to immediately be taken before a judge. And Barry its not open container thats a definition is possession of an alcoholic bevarage in a motor vehicle.

Apparently, Denton P.D. does NOT have a twitter page. It's supposedly some UNT guy. See http://www.nbcdfw.com/news/local/Police--Fake-Twitter-Page--Police-Would-Like-to-Talk-to-You.html

Probably just a typo on the link. I bet it is for warrants on speeding and open container. But as stated before, you refuse to sign a citation u go to jail. Just happens to be that at night you will have to wait until the AM to see the JP in Wise County. Don't refuse and you won't be abused by BUBBA in the Pokey. 3 hots and a cot is what u get 4 that and maybe a sore anus. You also might want to get that tattoo removed stating entrance only above your anus hole.

Barry, judging from some of the other arrests, it looks like the "speeding" are getting pulled in for outstanding warrants.

She looks like she could have one for "hot" checks.

YOU CANNOT BE ARRESTED FOR SPEEDING. FAIL TO SIGN WRITTEN PROMISE TO APPEAR. SHE WAS ARRESTED FOR A SPEEDING WARRANT BUT THE PEOPLE MAINTAINING THE TWITTER ACCOUNT DIDNT WANTTO TYPA ALL THAT INFORMATION IN

Barry, I enjoy your blog immensely. It's very interesting and it's not just your wit. Don't take that personally, will you? The comments of the denizens of Wise County and it's surrounding environs display quite a distinct lack of intellectual acuity that is absolutely fascinating.

Indeed, in my short 65 years on this planet I don't believe that I have ever encountered such an unreasonable amount of anger, hostility and abject stupidity in such a concentrated segment of society.

There are many normal Texans, of course, but somehow it seems Texas in general, and Wise County in particular, have attracted more than their share of morons Loudly proclaiming their collective ignorance... and right wing fealty.

Indeed, modern Texas is a cultural anthropologists dream come true and the land of the Dairy Queen appears to be a center of aberrant, meaning right wing, cultural idiosyncrasies.

An associate once made the statement to me that he wasn't half as tired of Washington as he was of those damnable Republicans!

I'm afraid I have to agree.

Keep up the good work.

B.W.

B.W.--

This is obviously just your pin-headed opinion which not only doesn't count for much, but nobody here really gives a flip about either.

BTW, are you an abortion provider?
Getting rich killing babies? Is that the cause of your animosity toward conservatives?

Go glue your face back to CNN. Seems to be where you got your opinions from.

You may call me Your Majesty. In fact, I insist. said...

Mr. B.W. McGurk, you have made a mistake in thinking that because you can put together a coherent sentence employing better than average grammar and vocabulary that your opinion matters more than the average commenter here on this blog, and that because you are talented in these arts you're entitled to judge everyone else as lacking. Education is wonderful, but it does not necessarily equate enlightenment.

B.W. Time for your mom's spunge bath. Put down your Star Wars toy figurines and come out of the basement for a bit to give her a hand, will ya? Besides... you need some sunlight.

You guys have so been reeled in by the master.

Magurk is obviously BG's creation, designed to stir up crap and cause more traffic on his little toy blog.

B.W. Magurk??? HAHAHAHAHAHA
There is not, nor has there ever been a person by that name, much less one so retarded as to make a statement like that one above.

My hat's off to the blog czar on this one.

In your "short" 65 years on this planet, BW, you obviously have missed out on one very important human quality. That is the quality of H U M I L I T Y. Don't fret, however, because I'm sure God will allow you as many life times here on Earth as you will need in order to gain that quality within your arrogant soul. Catch ya in the next life!

She is subject to arrest for speeding if she refuses to sign the citation. Also, if she is from Michigan, Wisconsin, or any state not a member of the Nonresident Violator Compact then she can be arrested for speeding...
