Texas Monthly Unveils Its "Bum Steer Awards" Cover


Off the top of my head, I can't think of anything that happened in Wise County this year that will make it in the issue.

Last year we made it twice:

HERE’S A SHORT SENTENCE: “JAMES, YOU’RE AN IDIOT”
Fearing a long prison sentence, James Carroll Franklin, of Azle, fled the Wise County courthouse while a jury was deciding his penalty for a drug conviction. As police chased Franklin across three counties, the jury’s recommendation, probation, was announced. A judge added 180 days in jail for the escape, and police said Franklin would likely face additional felony charges.


BUT WAIT . . .
An exercise to test Decatur’s preparedness for swine flu outbreaks was canceled because of concerns over actual swine flu outbreaks.

Hey BG....Decatur's own Texas Ranger was testifying today in defense of the sorry DPS trooper who smashed the young ladies face into a cement wall. He claimed, that the trooper was trying to protect the girl from on coming traffic!........for shizzle

Swine flu has been around for decades that I know of. Our gov and media like to keep the hyp up on it. I think there might be something in those dang shots they're trying to get rid of. Do you know anybody with the swine flu? Doubt it.

I saw the video on the DPS trooper trying to steer the drunk woman to his patrol car. She was very combative, but I don't see why he wasn't strong enough to handle her.
She pulled strongly to the left and he lost his grip. She then fell into the wall. Hey, shit happens when you are drunk and think you're having fun. The trooper was only trying to do his job. Get over it.
