All decisions will be questioned by someone (esp a victim's family) but the real question should be if the Sherriff had a past relationship with Brian Quintinilla or his family/friends and if that fact affected the decision.... More ›

Here is my last and final comment on this man. I know that he had a heart, but his actions are for the wrong reasons. I lost his respect when he let Brian Quintinilla out. A man that forever tortured a family. By paralyzing her.... More ›

Is he running a jail or the Texas work force Commission. He let things get way out of control. Guarantee you folks that all of this is deleted by tomorrow.

Another thing, Sheriff Tackitt; the FCC required that all public safety frequencies narrow band by 2012; we are coming up on 2016. Has Wilson County complied with this directive yet? Or do we spend the money to ensure that... More ›

What I am having trouble with is that my complaints as a retired firefighter and EMT in this county keep getting blamed on the Sheriff. When I asked for better communications, (namely another repeater in La Vernia) I was told... More ›
