To use the taxpayers dollars to raid a card room where honest hard working are enjoying themselves on a Friday night is unbelieveable. Are they aware that poker is not gambling but a skill. It is worlds apart from pulling a laver on a slot machine. What a joke.

And why does Hurst have a swat team anyway? To patrol the Abuelo's parking lot?

Cooper and Catalytic Converter theft on the rise. Even gas theft on the rise. These are the things Police need to focus on, since they can't seem to catch anyone doing it.

I keep seeing all these poker raids in the news, All you here is they seize thousands of dollars in cash. Lets get real, are they seizing $2,000, or $80,000. The real question I have is How much does it cost to exucute one of these raids. I mean swat team, police, undercover narcotics unit. Maybe you can look into that.

I would hope this type of energy rush could be reserved for, oh I don't know, violent criminals and predators.

Let me see if I'v got this right.( high stakes Las Vegas style poker game busted ) Sorry. my side hurts from laughing...... Swat team, Narcotics unit, under cover...
swat team had nothing to do.
Narcotics unit can't seem to do what they are paid for.( catch dope dealers )
And the under cover guy, Yes Sr. I think I know who you are.
It's a damn shame the working stiff guy can't enjoy himself as to playing a little nickel and dime poker without being F with like that. I play alot of poker in Dallas and Ft. Worth. And yes, with police and fire fighters from every area.........Guess I need to go to jail. Or at least get a ticket. Then again, maybe I should just start to play bingo.

Did they also have the NSA zoom in the "Las Vegas style" house with their surveillance satellites to get a clear entry point and have snipers ready to fire if anyone tried to escape?

what a waste of tax-payers money

Ive worked and played @ many local rooms, no harm is done. People that think this is wrong are the ones who want taxes or their cut some way out of the earnings. Most of these players and employees are just killing time and having fun!!!! Life is so stressful, gas prices are getting higher everyday, most of us work 40 hours plus a week. Just leave us alone no harm is being done. Cant people just mind their own business now days, they seem to when they see a real crime!!!!!!!!!!

What a waste of police time, courts time and jails time. Adults spending their money consensually. What a joke. Gambling and prostitution are the biggest wastes of police time there are. Society needs to wake up and stop worrying about these petty stupid laws and start worrying about the truly violent people out there.

No really, they we doing their job. Why can't you all go to your state reps and demand that gambling be legalized as well as marijuana? These cops agree with you!!! They don't want to be doing this. They know there are more violent offenders they could be going after. They want to get the Meth and Herione off the street. They want to get the drunk drivers stopped. But they have to also mess around with this bull shit because the city leaders think this is what the reisdents of their cities want!!!

Just like the damn game rooms on 199. Just legalize gambling, build a huge casino on Lake Worth and tear down all these game rooms. The only reason they go after them is because they are huge sources of Meth traffic. Marijuana is no worse then alcohol. Why not legalize it and let the potheads smoke it in their house. They ain't bothering anyone. I have never seen an angry pothead, I have seen an angry drunk though.

Big Bad John, hush, your not helping us in anyway....
