Amazing to see so many drunks leaving the bars getting in their cars and driving away right in front if these police officers and they do nothing about it. Even on weekend night drunks speeding and driving recklessly through our streets and not a cop in sight. Action needs to be taken.

That's because they are all fat and lazy out of shape. They don't have the energy to do anything. They need to force them to give up the red meat and workout OR LOSE YOUR JOB.

It that was the case we would be no officers, all of our local PD officers drink at the bars on their time off. if you feel unsecure about our streets late at night, please dont go out and shut your mouth.

Well, even if they did something about it, Saucedo & Ramos would just dismiss their cases. They have accidents caused by a DWI & they dismiss the case. It's time to clean house. These two along with the chief of police need to be replaced.

You people have no idea how much paperwork is involved with a DWI arrest. Besides, the DA's office usually throws out DWI charges, so what's the use? It's easier just following them home safely or giving them a public intoxication charge.
Bacically, it's a pain in the but!

Not to mention it takes an officer off the street for at least 1/2 their shift, and sometimes the entire shift. It's a total waste of time and of the taxpayers money. So mind your own business!

I'm just being honest and was trying to answer a simple question. Didn't say it was right. Besides, Eagle Pass has so many drunks, it's a lost cause even trying to mess with them. And as I said, the DA refuses most of the DWI cases, so F it!

Your life must be miserable. You sound like one of those persons who never succeeded in life. You probably quit and everything you tried. Looooooooooser!

Ay que mi gente :/ now there is a reason why the popo do not stop drunks coming out of our local bars and this is why very simple, police are not aloud to stake out a local bar and they are not aloud to follow any customers from any local bars, because then the business or any kind of clubs bars ect..... would loose business with clientele simple as that. And that is a law that protects the business owners, tan tan!

I live drinking and if u can find a designated driver that is the way to go. Or stop drinking an hour before you leave. But true about cops not being able to arrest people as soon as they take off from a bar or club. Assuming and ring out that you are able to drive a motor vehicle. One mile radious is enough for them to follow you and stop you for no reason because that's the law now. They don't need a reason to stop you. Their words would be routine check. And if you are caught doing illegal activities your cellphone is also taken away and searched for incriminating evidence. They leave no stone unturned these days.

No vale madre este departamento de Policia. Pura corrupcion empesando con el Jefe. Mas bien el "thief of police". En vez de ayudar, estan nomas a ver a quien chingan. Por eso nadie respeta a estos pendejos.
