Whats up with this guy and most importantly, what is up with our elected sheriff? Apparently, this guy is riding around with a police radio, police radar and dash cam in his personal vehicle, all given to him by the sheriff. Is the sheriff deputising local citizens now without them attending a police academy and being certified by TCLEOSE. I am also told that he is riding on patrol with deputies and wearing shirts and caps identifying himself as the police and carrying handcuffs and a gun that can be seen. I have checked and he does have a concealed handgun license, but that is what it is, CONCEALED. If we can see it, its not concealed and a police officer can not leagally allow him to break that law. Also, firearms on alcohol premises are limited to the police, owner of the property, manager in charge of the property or a certified security officer who works for the property. Manual Munoz is none of these and should not be carrying a firearm in any bar and when he is, he is commiting a FELONY! Next time I see him in a local bar with a gun, I will see to it that it is addressed, if I have to get TABC or the FBI invloved! This is a felony! So, I assume that the deputies and or sheriff are allowing him to commit a felony offense, as they are aware that he is carrying the gun. Is the manager at the Archway aware of this? If so, why does he allow it? They should be keeping guns out of the Archway, expecially after last weekend. Good old Monahans, things never change.

Manual is a volunteer firefighter you know the ones who risk there lives without pay to save the homes and other things of Monahans residents. So yes he has a scanner radio,lights and a dash cam same as do the rest of the VOLUNTEER firefighters. if you wanted to get a scanner you could as long as you are willing to pay whay it cost. How in the hell do you think the drug dealers know what the hell is going on. It is his choice to carry a hand gun. It is not against the law for him to ride with any law enforcement officer and I highly doubt that our Sheriff or any of our deputies would allow him to break the law!!!!

I know manuel and he is a good guy. as to whether or not he carrys his gun into any bar well yes that is a felony and yes something should be done. the radio u speak about is the same one that i have in my truck except i have taken the transmit side out for now and just use it as a good scanner. just about every firefighter in town i know has a radio and can transmit to pd and so. yes he does have a radar why i have no idea but it is not illegal. if u wanted one all u have to do is fork over the cash. im not taking either side just stating what i know about him.

Yeah Joey I agree with you but the original post says they were told this. If they don't know for sure if he has been in a bar with his gun then they have no case. I also know him my brother is friends with him and yes he is a good guy. There is nothing illegal about any of the equipment he has either and anyone can buy a shirt and hat that says sheriff on it from the internet right! I just think this person has really read more into this than what should have been but then again this is Monahans. By the way how are you doing?

I can respond to the Archway bit and thats it. There was a minor situation at the Archway last weekend, involving a local man with a gun. Although we received very good and reliable information that this man had a gun, one was NEVER found on him or in the building. We were closed early by the sheriff's office, them being concerned about not finding the gun and it possibly still being in the building. We are taking measures to help assure weapons are not brought into the Archway in the future, although we cant always be 100% positive that a weapon may not slip through, no club can. Also, I am not aware of any citizen bringing any firearms onto the premises and can assure you if a firearm is found on someone on the premises not permitted to legally carry, they will be prosecuted. The club is no place for guns and we do all we can to keep our customers safe by preventing any type of altercation.

Joey who? Is this joey bookmiller?! anyways the archway is a fun place to be minor fights every once in a while but nothing major. Manuel munoz is allowed to have lights, sirens, radars, scanners, and everything else because he is a volunteer firemanbut to identify himself as a police officer i wouldnt doubt it that sounds like something he would try to do. Riding with the sheriffs office or the PD while they are on patrol is not against the law, all they have to do is sign a waiver that the city is not responsible for him if he gets injured.

if you are so damn concerned that write a letter to the paper or file a complaint at the Sheriffs office but seriously venting on here is not gonna change anything except taking a manuel munoz topic to a whole different extent. you claim that you know the law but i know the sheriff and he does his job well get a law book available online but you probly already know that since you know everything else pawya
