Lowell, I was also a San Antonio policeman in the early 60s. I know after all your experience you were probably a very good police officer and I thank you for your service. But what I question is you asked Sheriff Tackitt to clean up all the gambling joints in Poth which is your jurisdiction because you had inadequate manpower, then when he did you said you and your men were not invited to the raid. Well, the sheriff probably thought you didn't have the manpower to do it yourself and he didn't want to drain your manpower while they were busy enforcing other laws. You were a good cop but you have a lot to learn about politics! I wonder if this criticism had something to do with you not wanting this horde of tinhorn gamblers in Poth mad at you for tossing them all in the calaboose?
