Yes those are the facts. I am sure this will all be cleared up, erased and removed soon, though. So read it, print it, or share the news QUICK!!
This is what I understand happened, too.

you too need to get ready, Jones is coming to the city real soon.Gentry will have to resign or get fired.These plans were made way back when Jones was appointed by Evans.They are so predictable.

I just love it when everybody can figure out everybody's business. So what if Jones comes back, GOOD. It just makes logical sense that since he lives here, wouldn't he like to work here. I would. It seems to me that Gentry and Jones work well together. They say they do anyway. I think that will be up to the City Council and Jones if he applies, and that can only be speculated on at this time.

I hope Mr. Jones does work for the city He is a very good man although as my boss use to say good boys & girls are not in demand that seems to be the same with men & women...... If everyone would get together & work together what a better place to live we would have

I talked with the Mayor, Gentry and Jones yesterday morning. These are the facts I received from all three: Howard had complaints from females on unbecoming behavior. An arrest was made and one female complained of inappropriate behavior. The Texas Rangers were called in and while under investigation, Howard admitted to it. I was told his license was pulled and he will never serve as law enforcement again. He was terminated. McKenzie is going to work for the Corrigan PD on his own as he stated in an earlier post. THESE ARE THE FACTS THAT I WERE GIVEN YESTERDAY. I SUGGEST THAT IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, TAKE THEM TO THE CITY COUNCIL OR THE CHIEF OF POLICE.
I resigned. I am glad that you mentioned names though so that my attorney, Buck Files of Tyler, Tx will have some people he can contact to find out why they are saying things that are not appropriate and a complete assasination of my character. I think the words are "defamation of character". Including you.
Thank you,
Alex J. Howard

Alex, I am sorry that this happened. I tried to contact you the same day but no one was home. I very much appreciated your service and I appreciated the fact that you patroled through my neighborhood with the spot light. No other officer has ever done that in my neighborhood. I have not heard your side of the story so I cannot and will not judge in my mind who is right or wrong at this time. I only know that when I heard of this incident I wanted to know from the officials and you what happened because I was very very surprised. I have stood up for you on Topix when others were against you. And I also knew that on the Topix, you can hear everything but the truth and bacon frying. This is what they told me and from the writings of others, they have answered the same way and I will repeat it to your attorney if necessary. I do not intend to defame your character in any way. You have only been a gentleman to me. I am repeating what I was told from the officials. I am sorry that this has happened to you and to the City of Trinity.

You are absolutely right. None of us are perfect. We all have our faults. Just know that the time you spent here was very much appreciated by some people in the community.

for those that still have questions about the job ex-officer howard was doing for our city ... residents of trinity county are being asked to call either county or city police if they know the whereabouts of alex howard. he now has a warrant for his arrest for felony assault of a child. took a poke at an adult, missed and hit a three year old. kid has cut over eye from his fist. she also has cuts and bruises from the fall after being struck. Anymore questions?

the child's aunt told me about this today in the store. Apparently Howard verbally attacked one of his neighbors, accusing her of causing him to lose his job, got overly upset and took a swing at her. He missed and hit the three year old instead, causing some injuries from both the hit and resulting fall.

At this point he is being sought, should not be in uniform but is still in possession of his firearm.

He was fired and surrendered his peace officers license in hopes of not going to jail, after he confessed if the gossip around town is to be believed.

From what the aunt told me this morning, he is currently trying to avoid arrest on three felony charges. Who knows? We may never know the whole truth.

Well, Well, Well, Seems like I knew what I was talking about doesn't it.Like I told you, Just get ready to have Jones as the chief.Seeing as how Gentry resigned tonight at the council meeting.It was either resign or be fired.Trinity could never have two chiefs.I am sure Jones appreciates Gentry holding his job for him.

it seems as though several people, many no longer posting here, have been proven to be correct in a lot of their predictions.
