I can't resist this one. I'll be brief. When I was working for a certain company, my job was to manage a gas station. I was hired not only to sell their product, and represent their company, but also to "keep the peace and insure the public's safety" in all areas entrusted to me by this company.

When I failed to "keep the peace", because of some certain community members who were angry because their "freind used to work their and got fired for no reason", I was given an choice, "Either find a way to fulfill your obligation or be prepared to turn it over to someone more able."

Maybe you should consider making the same offer to your law enforcement people who are entrusted with the public's safety, and keeping the peace.

If they can't handle this in a timely and practical fashion, I'm sure there are others who will be glad to meet your challenge and get the job done.

But.....this will require you to "vote", and to "get involved". To set standards and not take no for an answer. It would seem on the surface, that your problem is not tough guys in gangs as much as it is, weak guys in law enforcement.

Maybe I'm wrong? But, I believe that when good men do nothing, evil men rule. Let your flower gardens be an example. Got weeds?

WOW!!! Ya think? If parents start watching their kids and actually being a part of their lives, what will become of crime? Cops, gun manufacturers, emergency rooms would all be short on work! That's not job security.

"The One", you are a beautiful person. Not too good for all the security companies out there, but a beautiful human being just the same. Please try and spread your truth everywhere you go. I salute you!!!

I agree in the instance of Misty Gaylor it is a shame that she must have come from a horrible family that taught her no morals. Godless people. And the murders won't stop until someone says that snitching is not a get out of murder charges free card. I know that this is a different story but it is the same crap. Bad parenting makes bad children, and then they do what they want with no regard to who it might hurt.

You have NO idea what you are talking about when it comes to Misty's family. If you do not know what you are talking about you need to keep your words to yourself. Everyone has the freedom of choice and all we can do as a parent is try to teach our children right from wrong and it is up to each individual as to what they are going to do because like I said, we all have freedom of choice and we can't make our kids do everything that is right, if we could then there would not be any kids that have done anything wrong.

Im just curious why the Idabel Police Dept continue to let known drug dealers sell drugs.
I know people who drive to Idabel anytime they wish and purchase Crack,Meth.,and Hydrocodone.
Some of these dealers have been selling dope from the same locations for several years.
If everyone in the neighborhood knows whats going on the cops surely do also.
Whats the deal in Idabel?

If your from here than you probley know who I am. For years I too was in this drug world you people call hell. I done the whole cooking,jail,loosing my kids,thing. Nothing in my life ever changed until i meet Jesus Christ and made him my personal savior! So instead of talking bad about our Headlines in the News we need to pray that this comes to a stop!To wrongs don't make a right and in the Bible it says that no sin is greater than the other so stop gossiping about our dope heads and pray for them.. Someone prayed for me and my husband now look at us!!

I HAVE HAD EVERY MALE MEMBER OF MY FAMILY MURDERED IN IDABEL. US GIRLS JUST GREW UP KNOWING THAT AFTER OUR GRANDFATHER, UNCLE PERRY AND OUR BROTHER, JIMMY WAYNE....NOT TO MENTION COUSINS,,,,,WERE ALL MURDERED WITH NO CONVICTIONS, THAT WE WOULD SOON LOSE OUR DADDY, JIMMY TURBYFILL THE SAME WAY.
A VERY BAD STROKE TOOK HIM FIRST, YEAH, SURPRISE HUH? THEY DIDN'T GET TO HIM, AS EVERYONE ALWAYS SAID WOULD HAPPEN. I PERSONALLY FIND SOME SATISFACTION IN THAT ALONE.
MAYBE IF PEOPLE ACTUALLY GOT CAUGHT, OR BETTER YET, CONVICTED WHEN THEY ARE CAUGHT,,,,IDABEL WOULD SLOW DOWN A BIT. I REALLY DOUBT IT, I REALLY THINK IT IS TOO FAR GONE.
GOD BLESS THE REST OF YOU RAISING YOUR KIDS THERE. I MOVED ALL OF MY SONS THE HELL OUT OF DODGE, OR IDABEL RATHER!

I used to live in the area about 28 years ago and it was bad then. I always said it should be a country of its own. I moved there quite shy and left with a different attitude.

Misty Gaylers parents were not any worse of parents than any one else, besides she is grown. Perhaps it was her ex husbands parents that were bad and that is why he almost beat her to death at one point, and threw a hammer at her striking her in the face and resulting in major reconstructive surgery.

Damn.. looking for misty online because she used to be my neighbor and was so sweet, and come across this. For the record, she had a wonderful family, having known them, and if she hurt anyone, then I'm sure they deserved it. Anyone that knows how to reach or write her, you can email me contact info at [email protected] don't worry it's set up for spam, but i will check it every so often for something about her. Peace.

I left Idabel for almost ten years and when I started to go back for visits, I just can't believed how bad it has gotten. It's like nobody cares anymore. What happen to everyone? The town is just going down hill.
