JP Dispatched

The Messenger reports that a Justice of the Peace has been summoned to an "injured person" call at a construction zone along 380 east of Decatur.

Translation: Someone is dead.

For some crazy reason, Texas still requires a Justice of the Peace to be called out to conduct their own "inquest" when "a person dies an unnatural death from a cause other than a legal execution."

In counties where they have a medical examiner's office that is in charge of unattended deaths, then the JP is not necessary.

If that juridiction is not already covered by the authority of a medical examiner.

Not in the bigger counties. In tarrant county you get the M E.

On December 21 2012 there will be no one left to call out.

IN counties that have a State Approved Medical Examiners Office, they JPs have no duties on unattended deaths. Counties like Dallas, Tarrant, Harris etc, don't use JPs.

I knew I heard a new siren tone Thunderstruck from AC/DC roaring from the newly painted constable truck. I knew it had to be Ole Thunder Tom racing to the scene.

GAY? Is that the best you can do? Is calling someone gay supposed to be some kind of insult?

Apparently 8:22, 7:30, AND 9:05 may be mentally challenged.

Aside from using the tired and worn out Drugs & Alcohol reference.

"He" proceeds to call out other posters with some witty gay referenced rhetoric.

But alas when no one acknowledges "him" he feels the need to lash out one last time as a cry for help from his rickety single wide located deep in the heart of maloneville...

Grow up F-tard. Your shtick is played out....
