It's Race Week In Texas

Wise County Constable car photoed in the wild. (Thanks emailer.) Edit: I was complete oblivious to the handicapped spot. As far as I know, he may have a handicapped sticker. I just thought it was a "sweet ride."

Hey that is nice!! Wise Counties finest utilizing a handicap spot at the supercenter. Our county dollars put to good use!

If he is handicaped, we might need to find someone to fill his position in that brand new charger.

um, isn't that car parked in a handicapped space? Is our constable handicapped? If not, doesn't he need a ticket? Especially since it has been PICTURED???? Does he think he is above the law??

I hope that Constable had a handicapped parking permit. I would hate to think they would park there car there and NOT have a permit.

I didn't know wise county had a constable that was handicapped.

Danny said...

So either a handicap constable or one who parks in the handicap?

I did not know we had a constable that required a handicap spot.

I'm truly sorry, but "photoed?"

You drunk?

I like how the JP2 Constable is parked in the handicapped space ... either he is illegally parked or we have a handicapped constable out making traffic stops.

Interesting!

Yes and it just makes me feel all fuzzy inside knowing the county I was born and raised in hires the handicapped.

Hey, the license plate lights are still on, he's just running into the store for a minute!!!1

Is it too early for a hearty F the police?

Sometimes, when called to an incident, a law enforcement vehicle might not park legally, and may park in a handicap spot or a no parking or loading zone or fire lane.

Well I see that vehicle parked in the HANDICAP parking at the Sheriff's Office. It DOES NOT have a handicap sticker!!! I know because I have told LEONARD DENNEY several times to either get a sticker or stay out of the Handicap spot. He needs a ticket

Anonymous said...

Was there really an incident or was he going in to grab a box of donuts for the evening?

Speaking of ILLEGAL PARKING.... why aren't the trucks that park in the ROAD in front of Whataburger ticketed?? I almost ran into the back of one the other day. There is space for truck parking in the rear of that eating establishment. I think people should call the cops and insist they be ticketed. I sure would be if I decided to park there while I ate. This bother any of you?

Maybe he is extra handicapped

The JP2 constable is handicap. In his previous county vehicle, he had a handicap tag hanging from the mirror. This can be verified by asking just about anyone in Wise County in a law enforcement uniform.

Then why not have the roof lights on? If its that important of a call.

Anonymous said...

8:44, then why not have a tag hanging?

I got a ticket when I didn't have a current inspection sticker on my vehicle.

Anonymous said...

Is there a handicap parking spot at Whataburger, 8:29? Otherwise, you might not have any luck getting an officer there.

I tried to ask a LEO, but he told me it was none of my business. Guess I know my place now.

Too bad Barney Fife wasn't around. That Hot to Trot Constable would get himself a ticket.

Is that the Constable that replaced Dennis Hudson? I think someone is getting to big for their britches.

Jarhead said...

Hey, has anyone noticed that that cop is parked in a handi-capable spot?

Anonymous said...

Texas police vehicles have Texas Exempt license plates. They don't need a handicapped tag or plate to park there...although it would be political suicide for an elected Constable to do that and not be handicapped. Who doesn't notice a marked patrol car parked somewhere? I know Mr. Denney and I think he does have a handicap hangtag in his other vehicle.

I think the chrome wheels are way over the top. Don't they know we are in a recession right now. How many radios or air tanks or whatever could have been purchased for emergency services with that money?

Has anyone made Tom Bishop aware of this infraction?

Anonymous said...

10;00... ROFL!! good one!!

Anonymous said...

Why does he need a car anyway, so he can show off? Dennis never had a car he used his truck. Give me a break I can't believe the galls of this guy.

God Bless Dennis Hudson!
We need more people like him!

Straight ticket voting replaced Dennis Hudson with Tom Bishop. Have you seen his car? It is the one that can be identified by AirOne.

Anonymous said...

I miss Dennis Hudson! Are ya'll sure that's Denny's car? Where was Bishop when this was going on? I've seen him patroling Walmart a time or two!

Anonymous said...

Yeah, Denny's car, pretty sure....as it says "Precinct 2" and "Constable" in rather large and obvious lettering.

If Tom Bishop was there, we would likely see bullet holes in the car....lol

Maybe not physically handicapped, but could be mentally.

He's in a handicapped parking spot.

What the hell does an exempt license plate have to do with a handicap sticker? The only thing the word "exempt" applies to is state road taxes and emission fees. What a genius.

Anonymous said...

Hey 8:29, If there is'nt a "No Parking" sign I don't think the trucks are breaking the law.

Anonymous said...

12:15, they are parked in the MIDDLE of the road! Do you see "no parking" signs in the middle of the freeways? nope....geee...guess we could all just stop and park in the middle of those to have a picnic!

Anonymous said...

I'm confused, is this Tom's car?

There is no law allowing officers to break laws, except in an emergency. Even parking laws.

Anonymous said...

That car says clearly PCT on the side of it. I believe his truck also had handicapped placard in it if I remember correctly. Get off your high horses at least he works for his pay.

I've known since the sixtes , was always handicaped, beleive me. DAGO

The wheels are not chrome... they are hubcaps.. plastic at that.

I think I must have watched Barnaby Jones too much as a child, as I seem to be the only one to have noticed that this is not the Decatur Wal Mart. Notice the bill board in the background. I beleive this would be the Bowie store. What is a county owned car doing in Bowie, you might ask? Just like the deputies driving their patrol cars home every day and sitting there on their off days. Seems like a waste of my tax dollars, but what do I know. They will just raise taxes if they need more money. That always seems to be the logical thing to do. Problem solved. Maybe this guy thought that mentally handicapped qualified for the parking spot.

Seems like there have been some questions about the Pct. 2 constable before:

Isn't Leonard Denney in his 90's by now. Should the man even be driving?

Boy It's a good thing the county decided to start providing cars for its constables. Now Constable Doug Parr doesn't have to put miles on his vehicle or burn his own gas when he crosses two precincts, sometimes twice daily to dropoff and pickup his kids from his mom's house in Alvord. His precinct is the Boyd area.

Anonymous said...

He is the icon of Farmers Branch, he must have forgot about coming home to Alvord.

Must be a bunch of idiots. U can't get insurance coverage on a personal vehicle used for Police work. Just took this county long enough to stall on this issue with the Million dollar EMS building renovation and the new renovation project in Bport to realize this. About time the county stepped up to the plate and did what was right.

Anonymous said...

Noone said the county did the wrong thing. The only point anyone seems to be making is how the vehicles are already being abused.

Constable Parr said...

I usually don't post to this blog but I feel that I should respond since there has been an inaccurate accusation made about me. I feel that it's important that the citizens who read this have an opportunity to know the truth about an issue involving their tax dollars.

I have not been using my county vehicle to transport my kids back and forth to my mother's home in Alvord.

Recently, our home in Boyd suffered major damage due to an unforeseen accident. We were not able to live in our residence due to this damage. This has required my family to temporarily stay with my mother in Alvord for the past few weeks. Thus, my vehicle has been in Alvord with me before and after work. It should also be noted that my wife's vehicle has been there as well, not just my county vehicle. I have also been paying for the fuel for my county vehicle.

I know that this is more information than most of you care to read about but due to someone making statements without knowing the facts, I felt obligated to share this.

I am very appreciative that the county commissioners are supportive in my efforts to do my job for the citizens of this county.

If anyone would like to discuss any issues of concern with me directly, feel free to call or email my office and I would be happy to meet with you.

Well said, Constable Parr. These "anonymous" bloggers do not appreciate what the county employees do for them. But i want too thank all of the the city and county employees for all the hard work you all do for us.
