Tarrant County DA's Office Is Prosecuting Serious Crime This Week

Certainly there's more to this, but a quick search of the Internets didn't reveal anything.

And I'll admit that I didn't know what a "Fort Worth deputy marshal" was. But I learned: "The primary responsibility of this position is to serve various arrests warrants and misdemeanor writs issued through the Municipal Court on an assigned shift; to perform computerized warrant searches; and to serve as court bailiff in an assigned courtroom." It pays $42,244 a year.

The problem with these two is that if they would steal deer antlers from a resident, which is pathetic in itself, what else would they steal? They give the other 99.9% of good LEO's a bad name and they are a disgrace if this is true!

This case is a waste. At least one of these Marshall's is a stand up guy. This probably has more to do with the City's poor relationship with its own Marshall's office.

Counselor I would think you and your followers would be very happy that the DAs office is prosecuting a coupla cops ... well, sort of cops. You've been bashing them for their prosecution choices pretty regularly.

Me thinks your percentages are a little high. This seems to be the norm for LEO these days.

I read something about this story a while back if I remember correctly. They caught the gentleman poaching on the refuge or next to the refuge on Hwy 199. Found out he had taken several bucks from there in years past, took the antlers, then didn't turn all of them over for prosecution.

I don't see a case here. Sounds really lame. Especially since the FOUND property has ZERO value.

Yeah, he sounds pretty stand up.

If you fail at everything else in life, you can always go become a cop.

A marshall holds about as much water as a constable, rent a cops, wanna be's, you think they could catch the Golf Cart Bandit. Its like a marshall at a Golf Course, you stare at him and laugh

Sounds great. Kill the position of elected-constable and replace it with the position of hired-deputy marshall.

Save some money and get rid of additional election expenses.

11:03 is wrong, no poaching involved. This was a star telegram article

The story was this individual was picking up shed antlers on public land. Something this individual had been doing for years, apparently.

According to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, the two officers are accused of stealing another man’s antlers and passing them off as their own. The man making the accusations says he was collecting shed antlers, which male deer get rid of in the late winter, when he found an unusually large pair. He was celebrating his find when the deputies approached and confiscated them. But not before they let the man take a picture posing with them, a gaffe that he calls the “Hail Mary” of his case. Turns out, he didn’t need—the officers in question had been bragging about the antlers to all of their colleagues.

It upset the guy bad enough he kept pursuing it and it had amounted to a trail. The issue is, if proven, abuse of power to take someone's property.

I believe the guy got the antlers back.

Tell me Mr. tired old saying "if you fail at everything else in life" just what do YOU do for a living? Probably sittin on your fat ass in a dirty recliner in front of the TV drinking beer and collecting welfare.

The guy found a very large set shed horns on the ground and they seen him after he picked them up. They were so big they took them from him.

If there weren't any truth to what he says, why do you let that guy get under your skin so much, Hoss?

Let's talk some more about the trophies that were thrown away!

11:20 probably used to be a cop and got busted. Now disgruntled, living with momma sucking a tit and getting welfare because it sucks at everything else.

*yawn*

I guess it's true...sometimes, you do get the horns.

There has got to be more to the story. First, please tell me where you can find mule deer in Tarrant county and second, a deer does not shed the antlers at the same time.... they shed individually and potentially miles apart. The entire top his head doesn't come off.

Oh, 12:08, what the dumbass says doesn't affect me in the least. I just have no use for anyone who judges an entire class or group by the actions of part of the group. Same is true of lawyers, teachers, bankers, cops ... you name it. If your most intelligent comment is to keep repeating over and over that "they failed at everything else in life" then just keep it to yourself. Or go find some junior high kid to argue with on your level.

OH MY GOD!!! 1:36 you are just too clever. You made my point quite eloquently with your juvenile comment.

By your own admission, stating that I must be a former LEO that was just hating- proves that even former colleagues despise you. I bet you do wonders when placed on the stand. Kinda like the look in a deer's eyes 1.5 seconds before it gets smacked by a semi.

Please concede while you still have a tad bit of dignity left. You do not want to engage in a battle of wits- you're obviously unarmed.

I'm a cop.

If these guys (Texas Peace officer under CCP 2.12) took a citizen's property for their own use under the color of law, then they deserve to be prosecuted.

Let's see what the trial finds.

That's why I made the joke.

Battle of "wits" huh. Actually I wasn't the person who posted about the former LEO but since you mentioned it ... the only wits demonstrated in most posts, particularly yours, on this blog are half-wits. When you don't have a response then resort to a smart-ass attack. Again, pretty juvenile behavior, "cupcake."

I also grew up a few blocks from Robinhood Lane. Lived there from 1969 to 1978. So you probably know me too. Does that make my responses any more valid?
