The Campaign For DA

8.10.2017

Random Thursday Morning Thoughts


  • Scary: "State law enforcement regulators shut down the Lone Star College System's police training academy, the second time in four years the state has forced closure of the beleaguered police academy over failures to meet state standards." 
  • And Another (North Carolina):
  • I had someone tip me off, with documentation, that DPS will issue a ticket for not paying a toll to NTTA (technically a private entity?) and a criminal case will be filed in a Justice of the Peace court. What I saw was stunning. I'll do a post on it today or tomorrow.
  • Wise County Constable Doug Parr took a plea deal yesterday and will resign. Two thoughts: (1) The plea deal was fair and appropriate but that 40 days in jail as a condition of the probation really jumped out at me, (2) the Messenger  needs to be congratulated for exposing all of this in the beginning. That is why a free press is so important in the country. 
  • The Ticket finally went off on FBC Dallas pastor Robert Jeffress this morning and said everything I have said about him for years. And I'll never not love this photo. Gordon Keith said this about it: "Jesus's selfie in front of Caesar was the first thing I learned about in VBS."
  • I was listening to the radio this morning and heard a commercial for "flavored" mouth guards for athletes. And it said that for everyone purchased one would be donated to a "needy athlete." I thought it was a joke, but it is real. 
  • I saw someone else comment on the Decatur siren test at noon that, even though you knew it was coming, it caused a few seconds of anxiety due to the fear of nuclear war.
  • The FBI raided the home of Trump's former campaign head as part of the Russian probe. That certainly is a witch hunt, right? 
  • Some history: 
  • The Mooch is about to start TV appearances. I cannot wait.
  • There was a shooting in the parking lot of Stonebriar mall. I haven't read the story but I'll take a guess it was fighting over a parking space.

If Doug Parr was connected to the right families in Wise then the Messenger would have never ran that story and all of this would have been handled outside of court. We all know it's true! The local swamp is the one we need to focus on draining!

Pretty sure Jeffries has turned more away from Christianity than he has brought into it. What a disgrace. Doesn't 1st B Dallas have elders? Where are they? Have they no shame?

Jesus is coming. And boy is he pissed.

The Ticket finally went off on FBC Dallas pastor Robert Jeffress this morning

Dallas radio station 1310 The Ticket has two really big 10 year anniversaries coming up.

September 3 is the 10 year anniversary of Carter Albrecht's shooting death.

October 12 is the 10 year anniversary of Greggo's firing from The Ticket.

We're all hopeful that members of 1310 The Ticket are able let these dates pass without incident.

Not paying tolls is no different than shoplifting, stealing cable TV, sneaking into a ball game, or any other kind of basic theft. You know something costs money, but you use it or take it anyway and choose not to pay the business, or the organization, that offered the product for sale. Are those other things punishable as crimes? Yes.

Yes but his life is ruined, the damage is done. This wouldn't happen to some. Maybe he got off light, I don't know, but the punishment seems pretty fair for greasing the county gas card.

If skipping out on paying tolls is not a crime, can I likewise go into any private business I want and take whatever I want without being arrested for a crime?

I have always felt that elected leaders who break the law or violate the voter's trust should have their adjudicated punishment doubled at sentencing. Just seems right some how.

Why doesn't Lari Barager correct Skippy's spelling mistakes? Is she sweet on short people?

Sam Brows said...

There is a major flaw in the argument of those who would equate shoplifting with toll tag violations: if one gets caught shoplifting, typically you have the goods on you at the time of the apprehension, or, alternatively, there is video of an identifiable person snatching the purloined merchandise. However, if a car passes through a toll tag area without paying the toll, the camera is only trained on the license plate, and as a result, nobody can appear in Court and say with any degree of credibility whatsoever, "yup, that's the guy, sitting right over there at the defense table, I saw him run through the toll without paying." So if my wife or child is driving my car and runs through one, is it alright for the state to charge me? If I loaned my car to a friend, and he runs one, is it alright for the state to charge me? If so, then that logic means if a merchant loses a loaf of bread on Monday, and the video camera shows ten people walked down the bread isle on Monday it is ok to charge any one of those ten people with shoplifting.

If Parr's plea deal of 40 days jumped out at you, then it wasn't appropriate or fair it all. You know that is excessive.

Also, what did The Messenger expose? Didn't the people from the county that Parr pissed off just tell newspaper the story?

Did they ever prove he prove he greased the county gas card? Nope. Doubt it. Sounds like they trumped up a bunch of charges to force him to retire. He must have pissed off somebody over there in the county. That is usually when you see 9-10 charges all piled up is when you piss off the county folks.

8:51 for the win. If he had 500 more friends on Facebook, this never would have happened

Funny how an officer can file 5 or 10 or 15 charges of theft or forgery or illegal narcotics possessions on a dirtbag, but the DA only accepts 1 charge, but you have a county official on 15 charges of the same style and they break it off in his arse and file all 15 charges.

Looks like they were out to get him.

What did Parr do. Used his gas card incorrectly? Uhhhhh...........how many other officers, or employees for that matter, do the same thing?

well, but, he took the plea which doesn't prove he violated any law. it just proves he was beat down and stressed by the multiple charges and didn't want to risk tearing his family to pieces any more that the da already has.

I don't think Parr maliciously misused the county's fuel. sounds like they were jealous he was making more money building houses than he was being constable. seriously, whoever got their tit in a ringer over gas card accounting will have to answer to the Good Lord one day. and I bet that wont go over too well.

The county folks should be thankful parr build nice houses in that crap hole county.

Anonymous said...

All of the charges relate to Parr’s use of a county gas card and county vehicle between April 17, 2013, and June 28, 2016.



After reading that, you'd think Parr committed the crime of the century. Big score for the DA.

NOT.

Mr. Mike Honcho said...

Parr "Greased" the card to the tune of $14K. More importantly, he did so at gas stations all over the metroplex. NOT in Wise Co.

Why? Because he has a home construction business. And he was working on that side of things on county time, using county gas.

That clear it up for all you apologists?

PS - If you all want to get on facebook and ask for prayers for this "poor man's family", then also ask for prayers for us taxpayers to get reimbursed.

Parr also lied about how may miles were on his vehicle and how much gas he used. He also refused to serve the warrants in his precinct, deferring that job to the sheriffs. So why did he need $14,000 worth of gasoline if he wasn't doing his job?

Anonymous said...

Oh cmon Honcho show some compassion man, it's just 14 grand. Maybe he didn't realize he shouldn't be stealing gas and then tampering with the evidence to cover it up. Maybe this was all a misunderstanding. I just don't know how I'm gonna sleep tonight with all this stress he is going through.
