Stealing at the Rhome FD? Surely you jest!
Stolen trailers, winches, and boat motors, all in a day in Rhome, Texas. Who's looking out for Rhome's kiddo's? The metal zero tolerance sign, that's who!
LMAO! So typical. They hate drugs and want signs but, sign petitions so Love's can sell alcohol (alcohol is a drug) all the while they look the other way on stolen city items. Nice Christian town. Kenneth Copeland needs to relocate his brand of religion there.
Rhome and a trailer......nuff said.
Their Mayor must be proud.
Well, to Hell with supporting Rhome and their fire department spaghetti dinner tomorrow. Will be spending my money at the Aurora ballpark fundraiser instead. At least my money will go to a good cause and not into some crooks pocket.
Oh No! I smell another sign. NO STEALING ZERO TOLERANCE
Imagine that rhome fire department stealing stuff, thats what there know for.
Rhome tax dollars at work, look at the decals.
It is sitting in a fire station and nobody blinks an eye? It just magically appeared?
THEY WILL NEVER GET ANOTHER DIME AT THE BOOT DRIVE! They lost the public trust. Time to clean out the council.
And to think that today is the Rhome Fire Department's annual spaghetti dinner. Come on down! The spaghetti is hot, and so is the equipment!
What a Fluster Cuck of a story.
Let's don't blame this on the Rhome officials. It was two guys caught with their hands in the cookie jar. People will steal if they think they can get away with it.
Waldo seems easier to find than the Mayor these days.....what the *&^%&*^ is going on in Rhome?
That town's been ripping people off for years.
9:27 must be a Rhome official!
throw you money and support to the other VFD'S in te area, the ones that do not have stolen equipment in their stations and pretend that they dont know it. about the same time along with this trailer they had a 14 foot boat with a new motor on it funny they dont have it any longer.
I have no respect for the city of Rhome. They have mistreated me. Cops are crooked. The lady at the city court is a complete bitch. I was out of my way being nice to her and she was craping on me. I did get differed adjucation on my stupid 42 in a 30 on the access road. Even though I have a cdl. Just can't speed in Rhome for a month
Funniest statement of the story, Rhome Fire officials did not know the trailer was stolen...
That right, it's not completely the city councils fault. Maybe the blame lies with the structure of the fire dept. I saw the inside of the trailer once and it was loaded with thousands of dollars worth of stuff in it, and I'm sure it was bought with the stolen money. The boat motor was on a boat in the station they called a swift water rescue boat. I wonder why the Chief or no one ever wondered where he came up with all this equipment? I bet it was " I didn't steal it so it's ok to take it and make us look big with all this stuff". Either way, you can't make me believe no one else knew about it all being stolen.
They should probably learn how to put out a grass fire before they worry about technical rescue.
I bet 9:27. Is on the Rhome fire department. Also heard they have drugs on there fire truck.
1:24No I am not a Rhome official.9:27 AM
If they would fix potholes, they wouldnt need that boat.
17 Pawn and Loan.
I wonder if this will make next weeks community newsletter?
LOL @ 2:17!
Don't know anything about the council but it is common knowledge that Rhome VFD is corrupt. If the city wanted to try to clean things up they might consider an independant audit of their beloved FD. Until there is some house cleaning over there that place will continue to be a rat hole.
mabey we should take this to the commissioners and petetion for them to pull their county contract or have the county do an audit to see who's pockets the money is being put into.
I think an independent audit would be a great idea.
Personally I would like to see an audit done to all vfd's in our county! Boyd had a stolen trailer also and Paradise is run by a crooked family that everyone is scared of! I am glad my taxpayer money goes to crooks and thieves!
The city officials have NO clue.
Everyone knew it was hot. Who dropped a dime to GPD?
8:54, I'M NOT SURE WHO YOUR TALKING ABOUT IN PARADISE, I WAS THE CHIEF FOR THE LAST 6 YEARS AND NO ONE ELSE IN MY FAMILY IS ON THE FIRE DEPT, THE NEW CHIEF IS ONE OF THE BEST GUYS AROUND AS WELL AS THE OTHER OFFICERS, IF YOU THINK WHAT YOU SAID IS TRUE YOUR MOR THAN WELCOME TO ATTEND ONE OF OUR MEETINGS THEY ARE THE 1SR AND 4TH WEDNESDAYS OF EACH MONTH AT 7PM
I can not believe all the negative stuff being said on here. You are talking about our 1st responders, you know the guys and gals that will come to your house or a neighbors and save lives and put out fires. I can understand being upset but there is really some harsh things said here. Everyone needs to take a hard look at themselves. It's shameful.
This is just a bunch if stupid a$$ people talking about stuff they have no clue about. Paradise great bunch of people. Rhome great group of guys. Boyd great people. I bet the people on just like to bitch And have never helped anyone in there lifes. If you would like to attend meetings of any of the departments call them.
Why all the Rhome bashing???...guess things are all above board in the rest of Wise county???....NOT Newark...New Fairview...Boyd...Decatur you've got to be F&^%ing kidding me. Meth labs, thieves and crooks all over. What was the name of the meth family in Decatur? Take alook around your own backyard before you start throwing rocks.When in Rhome.
do you people in Alvoid pay any taxes, because you have the same potholes for over 20 years and most of the street signs are missing..wtf is going on there?
The people in Alvoid have zero tolerance of street signs!
Some first responders only join to bang the young tarts on the department,have a place to hang because they dont work, like to drink gatorade on the city dime, and get discounts at dos chiles for being on the vfd. They ruin it for the good ones.
Oh no sounds like people getting defensive about the thieves. I am sure Joe taxpayer would not be very welcome @ one of the department meetings or if he was they would not openly discuss what they thought to be none of his business! Open the doors and the books and let the taxpayer see where their money is goin down to the last cent!
9:16, because it's Rhome and there is no need for "swift water rescue" boat with a motor, unless the oilfield water truck that buys city water leaves the tap on by the church and floods it, and turns it into Lake Rhome.
and day love day potholes too!
Ok 1:59, I'm not going to defend anyone because I believe they knew it was stolen and there's not a person out there that could convince me other wise. But as far as requesting what the tax dollar is being spent on is your right. As any agency recieving tax money as funding has to have the open book policy. You can't just go to the meeting and ask to see it right then, but you can do a records request to see the financial statement or what ever it is you want to see. The department have to submit a yearly financial report showing what the money is being spent on. I think all should be audited 2 or 3 years back and then forced to do audit every year. Just so you don't have theft that has happened before in several areas. But not every volunteer is a thief.
When is the raffle for the trailer?
I just think it's funny, lets take a guess how many people that posted will thank the RFD when they call 911 and its them that show up to help them or their family.
We dont need 911! The Zero Tolerance sign will save us!
RFD just makes concrete slabs out of burning houses. for medical calls they get in way of emts. only thing they are good for is lawn mower racing events.
You people doin the bitching about every fire department in the county are probably the ones out starting all these damn fires on the dryest windiest days weve seen and then have to call 911 for them to come and bail your asses out. Quit your bitching and thank them for taking time from their personal lives to save your arrogant dumb F!@#ING asses and doing it for free. You cant blame all the departments or even the entirety of Rhome FD for a couple of mens actions. Thank you to all the volunteer firemen we have in Wise county.
11:05 you obviously have not been around in Rhome the last few years. I have not seen or heard of a fire in Rhome's District that went to the ground. Maybe in another department's district. As for EMT's getting in the way are your talking about the "real" EMTs at Wise County EMS. They have a good working relationship with most of the crews on the ambulance that responds to their area primarily. The other ambulances that come in have people on their ambulances that are so big I wonder how they can treat patients.No one should just without all the facts. Just because one person is a thief does not mean everyone is. And if you live in Rhome and its so bad imagine your taxes if the department was not volunteer so put up or shut up!
