It is hard to be a constable and build houses at the same time.

The gas card stats interest me. .. 7000+gallons burned, but truck only had 11,000+ miles? ?

Busted constable that works part time but uses taxpayer money for gas! Wish we knew how many elected officials work a full 40 hours and if their work requires a big car allowance. At least he is not chasing down vehicles on a major highway playing super cop!!! Doubt the Messenger is going to check into the commissioners hours or the other elected official hours.

Looks like someone is out to get him. We don't have all of the information. Looks like the messenger has it out for him as well. very one sided article and biased.

Where is Parr based out of?...and there is your answer as to why they are out to get him.

I like what the paper did. They found a government employee (in this case elected) that wasn't doing their job and the reported on it. They need to go find more waste of our tax dollars.

They need to get rid of all those worthless constables way to expensive for what you get. You ck commissioner mileage and perks plus salary vs hrs worked they are making more per hour than 500 per hour lawyer work

Parr is a builder of homes..but is in partnership with Lloyd Jackson and James Wood. Google him

If the Messenger were really interested in elected/public official abuse or corruption they would be digging into why so many school board members/supt. want to use ONLY certain architects/engineers/construction companies and especially those who are builder/construction trades owners involved in the decision making. I bet Aunt Sally's garter belt we have some of these fine upstanding public servants on the take. And you think this type of investigative journalism is in Decatur or any where in Wise County where schools are building/about to build? AIN'T GONNA HAPPEN!!!!

Sounds like someone is out to make him look bad. That is some minor BS in the paper and it really amounts to nothing. Since when does a newspaper print only one side to the story? It didn't say Parr had no comment. Someone in the county and at the paper has it out for him. All those years as a constable and never a thing wrong until now? Sounds fishy.

Typical media. Maybe the news paper should get his side.

Is that the issue 10:00am.
I don't know the person you are talking about, but if I was a LEO too, I would probably have more than one income source.

Hell, fireman do it so they can survive. Cops cant do it though?????

Probably not. You just sound jealous that you aren't off your ass working to make a living. Instead you troll here.

Crime of the century right there. Good thing the newspaper supports local law enforcement.

What does a constable get paid anyway?????????????

WELL THATS ABOUT PARR!!!

Anonymous said...

Parr thinks he can get away with anything all because he has JP3 in his back pocket. Nothing will ever come of this! Parr thinks he runs wise county and that he is the best thing to come to wise county. His stuff don't stink

Money, they get paid money!

Now I understand why he did not register his truck. When you have your truck inspected, they take the odometer reading. That would show that he was getting 1.3 mpg. That might suggest that he was using the gas card on another vehicle. I guess that could be looked at as stealing gas. Is there any video footage of the person buying the papers? Also, I have noticed that someone has created new Facebook profiles today and they are posting on the wcmessenger fb page and they are defending Parr. Crazy!!

10:54 sounds like the county official or the journalist that is out to get him.

Doug Parr drives his county vehicle to check on the homes he is building in Bridgeport and I would assume he does this in Paradise, Decatur, etc. - argue this if you want to but it is what it is. I am not witch hunting - just stating a fact. Drive your personal vehicle to check on your homes and DO NOT use the county gas card to fill it up!! Just sayin...

Is it a witch hunt when the guy appears not to be doing his job and somebody checks into it? If it is then we need more witch hunts!!!

I work my ass off, pay a lot in taxes and I expect it to be used properly. If I owned the Messenger I would have a full-time reporter that did nothing more than investigates government waste. It makes for good reading and everyone benefits except for the crook.

Its no worse than the Devon employee that drives his work truck to watch his son's two a day practice in Decatur

All they did was give him free advertising. Home sales will boom and he will retire soon.

Which is it 12:08???????????

You said its all an assumption, but then you say its stating a fact?

Can you prove that he is checking on houses?
Can you prove he wasn't patrolling when going from one location to the next?
Can you prove he never needed his personal vehicle to check up on a place because maybe his squad car is easily recognizable by people he needs to serve?

I don't know the guy, but it does sound like a witch hunt as someone mentioned before. This article sounds so petty. All these people making assumptions about theft and no proof.

Don't yall have bigger problems in that county?

1:46...No worse than a Devon employee? Devon employees are not using my tax dollars. I could care less what the Devon employee does, but I do not want my tax dollars going to a constable's private business.

Good questions Doug. Why don't you answer them since you are commenting?

Dang, I found this quote from the blog in 2006.

Here we s the link. http://www.liberallylean.com/2009/04/its-race-week-in-texas.html

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.s
