Yes Mr. Bullock my questions were answered! Obviously we have two different opinions, isnt it wonderful that at this time in our country we can still do this! I do not know the other men involved as you apparently do,nor am I here to judge them, but David being either corrupt or ignorant, hey what does that say about the answers from the other side. Just because your support falls the other way does not make it so, as it would be with me and my opinions. I intend to let a jury decide and not add more hurt to everyone involved, and with that I will close except for to say in my opinion, "Taxpayer money" is being spent for absolutely no reason other than someone got caught up in the excitement of the "Witch Hunt" that took place in Hockley Co. and involved many of the wrong people! Glad it wasn't me Mr. Bullock, arent you glad it wasnt you?

VD,
Your complaints about the unecessary waste of "taxpayer dollars" are directed at the wrong individuals involved. Logic derived from the evidence provided tells me that had David had acted competently and/or honorably this sad fiasco would not have transpired. Welcome to the "No Spin Zone".

Bill O'Reilly's No Spin Zone is a very healthy place to be Freedom Fighter, maybe we should all use the same logic. Opinions are just that, as I told Bullock, he has his, I have mine, and obviously you have yours.. Welcome to the foundation our country was built on!I am not going to get nasty on here, believe it or not that is not going to help anyone.. I just feel sad for the people that want to blame one man for all the wrong doings in our county. Yes, I stand by it, a total waste of tax dollars! The fiasco was inevitable, as for the evidence; "I don't think so!"

I don't think anyone is trying to blame just one man for Hockley County's troubles. It's obvious many people are to blame. However, to state that Kinney's involvement or lack there of should not face scrutiny is ridiculous. To totally dismis the sherrif's sworn duty to be the chief law enforcer in the county is naive & ridiculous as well. In the evidence already provided by the initial investigation it is clear Kinney turned a blind eye to the behavior of the people that worked for him or condoned it. Either way, any sensible jury is going to see the flaws in regards to how Kinney operated & contolled his staff & office. Reality sucks some times.

Scrutiny of all elected officials is not something that should be overlooked in my opinion. I personally think that if guilty of anything, David continued to run the Sheriff's Office as it had been run for many many years. Unfortunately, he is also being accused of things that were way before him and during that time he had absolutely no control over. But in order to make him look bad it was added to his list of accusations in order to make a case against him. You know, the evidence is what helped the Judge decide to lift the restraining order, does that not tell you anything.He would have been placed back into his job had it not been for Texas laws. The evidence presented brought many laughs from those watching, which I do not agree with either, he was doing the best he could with what he had, so is it possible that you really are wanting to blame David for everything or possibly something personal. Unfortuately sometimes lawyers, doctors, teachers, and law enforcement officers who do their jobs are not the popular choices by some who fall on the wrong side. Now, that is reality! Regardless, you have your opinion and I have mine!

Exactly. He had every duty and opportunity to put an end to the way the office had been run in the past and failed to do so. He was the head honcho and was given the authority to make changes & failed. Failure to change the satus quo Still makes him guilty. He ws the chief law enforcer, & chose to do nothing. If he really didn't know,.... Well....I'll just leave it at that. All the actions of his staff all fall under his control. He was responsible, had ample opportunity to address the serious issues, but neglected to do so.

Don't use facts in your response. Just continue to tell me how we are on different sides and we have different opinions and so on and so on.

Be on the side of TRUTH. Just because Kinney didn't start it, doesn't mean he shouldn't have ended it once he was in office & "in control".

Wow, you do know how to work the "Spin Zone!" Are you a member of a certain staff?lol David made many changes after taking office. I was talking about what he and his wife were accused of.. Come on now, lets be fair! I noticed you failed to comment on the Judge and his decision! I guess that was just an oversight too.. If you were in the courtroom then you heard the supposed facts, as well as the rebuttal, and the decision of the Judge. I am on the side of the truth, I just do not have animosity for David as you do. Wonder why?
If every elected official in Hockley Co. was held accountable to the standards you suggest, we would have an empty courthouse as well as many other offices in Hockley Co, because NEWSFLASH- Human Beings are not perfect..Your spin with me stops here..

Kinney , Bob, Sally, or Matilda....you fill in the blank. I don't care who you are. Mistakes this large cannot be ignored and anyone who would let things continue as they were needed to be removed. Never met Kinney. Have no prior experiences with the man. I'm sure he can be a very cordial and polite gentlemen. Don't care really what the name is, but know enough that Hockley county is better off without him or anyone else who would make the same choices. You want to make this personal. It's not. It's what's right.

I also find fault in your argument towards the "standard" we should all be held to. You have set the bar really low. I expect any sherrif to fire any deputy sherrif who is involved in inteastate traffiking of drugs, making false arrests, and obstructing federal investigations. No spin....just logic.

Now, I like the name Matilda but not to crazy about Sally though.lol Okay, it is this simple, the accusations you have made on here about traffiking, false arrests and obstructing federal investigations are the same accusations David answered in the hearing. Nothing more, the FBI, ATF, nor the Texas Rangers did not find anything that they could charge David Kinney with!The only reason he was removed from office is due to Christopher Dennis making accusations, found an out of town Judge who looked at the accusations and decided with all that was going on in Levelland at the time, it could possibly have some merit and signed the order. David answered the accusations, not charges, and the Judge lifted the restraining order but was not able to put him back in office due to the Texas Laws! Now this is reality, and this is the truth! Now you want to talk setting the bar low, I do not think it is me.. Accusations are just that, the proof has to follow. So far, there has been absolutely nothing proven other than the waste of tax-payer money. Sorry if this doesnt fit your agenda, but it is the truth! Hey should we blame David for the horrible wind we had tonight, surely he must of had something to do with it! lol

Notice: just cause the Feds haven't haven't charged him yet doesn't mean they won't. This all seems to be a wrinkle in your agenda VD. I have no problems with the current process, and am ready to let the proof follow. Your the one whining about $ and wanting to skip the discovery process. VD all you have gotten on this board to do is complain & look for someone to blame for your problems. Self reflection is difficult but necessary in order to truly mature, & after reading all of your posts you truly operate in a unique fashion. I am certain it has not served you too well thru life, but hey good luck with that.

All I am going to say to that is I am so sorry for you! My agenda as you put it was to ask a fair question in the beginning! I ask if there was ever going to be an election to replace David Kinney since it looked as if it was going to be permanent! Since you went back and looked, I believe you should have seen that as well. I am going to say only one thing that could give you the argument you seem to be wanting! Just because you say it is so, does not make it so! The judicial system will work even with airheads like you spouting your hateful remarks. I have done very well in my endeavors in life thank you very much, how about you? I simply wanted to know on this if anyone other than myself was not happy with the way it was going in Levelland. Now, for a final statement from me to you, accuse away, think you know it all, you do not! Not everyone gets on here with an agenda like you have. It is great to have opinions but know that there are two sides. I do, but there are other forums where people who are angry, wanting to cuss,rant, and rave which I also noticed you have been there too. You are not the only one who does their homework..lol But thankfully you can have your opinion and I can have mine.. I do, and it is still wastefull spending. Evidentally David heard your request and made the wind stop.. By the way, I have known David for a lot of years, he is a good man, but being personally involved in all of this I am not! But I do take it personally when I see someone regardless to who it is being railroaded! I still contend, if it can happen to him, it can happen to anyone! That is my problem with this whole mess! By the way: YOU STILL WILL NOT NOTICE that the Judge didnt believe your so called evidence either and I figure he is smarter than the both of us put together!This is not an agenda, it is just pure facts!

If the feds were going to charge him with something they already would have. They have already said he is under no kind of investigation is why this went civil instead of criminal.

If there was any proof in the crap Bohannon spewed, there would have been federal charges against Kinney...Wouldn't there?

FreedomFighter had made a comment that just because the Feds haven't charged him yet doesn't me they won't. I was trying to point out that they didn't have anything on him is why Chris Dennis went civil because there was nothing to be charged with criminally. Sorry if I wasn't clear.

No. The Feds can sit on this as long as they want. Sometimes they do this to see what comes out of the woodwork.

Who had they had rather "got"- The Sheriff or the deputy? Please, if they had anything they would have brought it. And they can't sit on it as long as they like, there's a statute of limitations running.
