It is idiots like Green that will lead to the ultimate downfall of Elgin. Someone needs to stand up and put him in his place by showing him how to really help the community, not hamper it.

Racism is a cop out for someone who has nothing better to claim for their stupid actions. The only Racists in Elgin are the people who claim all the Police are Racist.

Its not the city that sets the crooks free its the county/district attorney. The cases can be filed but the Police can only do so much, otherwise they're accused of overstepping their bounds. Perhaps law enforcement should just leave Elgin all together and leave its citizens to fend for theirselves, ha I'd love to see that.

And another thing...Are the Police racist because a group of white, black and hispanic crooks complained they were mistreated because the were arrested, hmmm or do you even know, I bet your just assuming and we all know what assuming does. Perhaps if people werent so naive to believe everything they read they would actually try to find out the truth for themselves.

Here, Here Dan its about time someone spoke the truth. The few Officers that are left in the community are doing the best they can, We need to get behind them and let them clean this town up. Are innocent people gonna get stopped, yes; will they go to jail if their innocent, NO!

Really all racism is alive and well in all of us in some form. It is how we react and deal with people everyday I commend the officers who arrest the dealers and I dont care how they arrest them just get them off the streets, white black, yellow or green they are destroying peoples lives and minds with narcotics.

I commend you Mr. Green on the work you are doing....someone has to help stop the over use of police force whether you are innocent or not......We all have rights awarded by the founding fathers of this country and our constitution which everyone has forgotten.......or do not know....the city of Elgin has always had corrupt officers from Chief Huckabee who was not arrested for his involvement stealing money from the blue santa fund.....yet if it were Mr. Green or myself we would have been arraigned in bastrop county............Now I am not saying all officers are bad.......but if you are an officer and your fellow officer is crooked and you do nothing then you are just as guilty........We need to take back our town and put the police on notice that we are the providers of their income.....they are here to do our will and not anyone else's. I am behind the police so long as they follow the constituion of the united states.....

Your an Idiot...Huckabee is gone and has been gone for over four years. Mr. Green needs to be indicted as he blatantly lied in open council and assisted in filing false reports, along with several other yahoos who paraded around in front of council throwing out false accusations. The town does need to be taken back, but not from the Police; it needs to be taken back from the drug dealers, burglars and thieves who are terrorizing the community. The Police are not here to do your will, they are here to enforce the laws of the State of Texas and the United States of America; in simpler words, THEY ARE HERE TO PROTECT YOU ASS, NOT KISS IT! Unless you are a homeowner, YOU do not provide any of their income an even if you are a homeowner it is only a fraction of a cent.

No sir I think it is you that is the idiot that was born at birth with no knowledge of your rights. Yes the police are there to enforce the laws but not to overstep their boundaries as in most cases they do. If you really want to protect yourself from the drug dealers and gangs which I doubt Elgin has any true gang ties as you would like to believe. You would then as true patriot of this great country would convice the city council to pass a law that other towns have to keep drug dealers and burglars on alert to think twice about entering into someone's private property. http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m1282/i...

Read this article and lets see if you have the balls to talk about it with friends and families. This is the only way to take back the streets from the drug dealers and burglars. Also if we as home owners don't pay for their salaries (police) the where do the vehicles and uniforms come from. Also, I need no police to protece me from burglars or drug dealers as you need them to. I have my own protection and so should everyone else.

Wrong AGAIN...It is obvious from your name and your rant that you are an individual who believes the NWO runs things, the Kennedy Assassinations were a plot by the CIA, the moon landing was a hoax, the Masons rule the world and everyone is out to get you. You obviously have no knowledge of Green and what he stands for. You either don't live in Elgin or your head is in the sand.

I do agree with the article, personally I think all criminals and extremists should be deported to Iraq and if they can be the Jihadists they can have the country, but if they screw around we should just make the country a giant glass bowl.

As far as protecting your home and property, Texas gives you that right under the castle doctrine and other laws (unlike most states), that I'm sure you must know about since you insist on talking about rights.

I did not say that homeowners do not pay salaries, I said non-homeowners don't and Homeowners only pay a small fraction of the Officer's salaries, the city tax rate is .75 per $100 and there are approximately 10,000 people in the city; I would assume the Officer's make around 35-40000 a year, you do the math and tell me how much each homeowner contributes to the Officer's salaries. As far as cars and uniforms go, would you rather them ride horses on main street in blue jeans and t-shirts.....nevermind, you would probably would.

If you think you can protect yourself, then don't call the Police when you are a victim, personally I think you should not even be allowed to stand next to one of them; seeing how you think "they overstep their boundaries in most cases" I hope when you need one of them, which one day you will, they step over their boundaries and do all they can to help you without the least personal thought of their own welfare.

Perhaps you should read the Wolf, Sheep and Sheepdog to put things into perspective. I guess it will take one of the Officers being seriously injured or worse before the community stands against those like Green and yourself behind the understaffed, underpaid, and under equipped Police in this city.
