What a letdown Bud Torres has been as sheriff. He has broken so many promises. He started off campaigning that we would see more patrolling. That did not work out except for the Police Jury paying for 2 lace deputies a day. He promised that the sheriff’s office would have a better image and do away with waste. That did not happen either by hiring A Slaughter, J Boudreax and B Saizon and a couple others. The payroll for the management increased drastically too. IT IS MUCH LARGER THAN PRS HAD. Look at the audits on the internet for yourself. That’s probably why he cannot put more deputies on the road. THE LARGEST LIE IN THE PARISH AT ELECTION TIME WAS THAT THE SHERIFFS OFFICE WAS BROKE. PRS LEFT THE DEPT WITH OVER A HALF MILLION DOLLARS! Just take a look at it now. The new equipment including cars is mostly due to the money and grant process that held over into the new administration. Bud continually blames everything bad on the “prior administration”. That dog does not hunt anymore. If it was not for PRS having a huge surplus when he left, you wouldn’t see the new cars on the street right now. More and more people are catching on that although Bud works hard himself, he is incapable of leading a department. He was probably the best field trooper ever put a badge on. But, that didn’t make him capable of being a LT, Capt, Major, or Colonel. The job of a good Sheriff is more than making a few practice one liners to the Banner and TV and kicking down the door in certain neighborhoods. It’s about the ability to make the tough decisions and still have the people following after the honeymoon is over. More and more Bud hates to look over his shoulder because each time he sees less and less people following. The talk he does is seen more and more for what it is; a desire with no courage and ability to lead. Kind of like when a dog bites down on a car tire. He does not know what to do with it when he finally caught it.

We have been saying all along, Bud is a flash in the pan,and/or a smoke and mirrors act. I have always been a P.R. supporter, but if I were a Bud supporter I would be pissed by all the lies he's told. His supporters took him at his word, now they know he has no word.

In thinking about this whole situation a question came to mind. Does Bud really think that the people of this parish are so gullible that he could just make these promises and he wouldn't be held responsible to impliment them?

Wow! Well said! Now is not too soon to start letting people know how they feel and what they want in a new Sheriff! It was "Go Bud!", now it's "GO, Bud!"

Bud just did not realize the magnifying glass he was going to be under. He definitely did not realize how closely the people of Pointe Coupee would be paying attention to his every move or decision he made and, in a way it is an insult to the people of the Parish for him to assume they would not notice the big mistakes he has made from employees to grand standing with his "Rambo Theatrical Moments". that are almost as bad as him having Brett Robillard follow him around like a wet nose puppy. Yes, he had a pretty good idea once in office he could twist the truth around a bit but, he just can't cut the mustard.

And speaking of can't cut the mustard, having the mayor of the trailer park, an old alcohol sponge with illegal activities going on right under his nose as an adviser ain't helping any either.

All in all Bud has been a let to this parish.He's nothing but a two face lier,and it's time for him to go and take the lossers with him.I sure hope the ones he hired back has a job to go back to when PRS walks threw the front door of the court house.I would love to be there when he fires there ass.

(BUD IS A JOKE TO THIS PARISH AND THE SHIT HE HIRED BACK)

It is sad, but that's politics. One good thing that will come out of buds busted tenure is that if Paul does come back he will have a great deal more intelligence about who is who in this parish. Paul almost won that election but for a small few that turned on him. In retrospect I think it was a good thing for them to show their loss of loyalty to a good man and sheriff. It will make him a stronger sheriff because he will have experienced the betrayal he didn't think would happen. I do not expect him to be vindictive but I will bet my azz that he will not put them close to his operation like bud did. Bud had no choice but to hire and pay back Paul's enemies. In the beginning of his campaign those were the only ones that would stand with bud. They were drunk with the notion of throwing PR out of office and thought of nothing but doing it. They could not or would not think about what would happen after the honeymoon would end. The reason they were failures in the first place was their lack of forethought and mental acuity. If bud had not payed them back with tax payer funded jobs they would have turned on him before he could have broken in his new sheriffs chair. Snakes and dogs are like that you know. I know bud reads this forum because of the ugly things that were said about Paul during the last election by buds supporters and this will make you mad bud but, this is what you get when you lay down with dogs.

I will leave you with a quote bud from an old philosopher:

"Man, like Deity, creates in his own image. When a painter paints a portrait he makes two - one of himself and one of the sitter. If there is a sleazy thread in your character you will weave it into the fabric you are making."

I remember hearing bud on several occasions while standing on his "stump" where he said he was going to bring respect back into the sheriffs office. Bud tried to weave a little sleazy thread into the fabric of his campaign promises and he can't act like he didn't. He has to wear the coat he weaved and can't take it off, even when he looses his next campaign. If he doesn't do something drastic his political career is over in this parish.

Funny but when I bring up this topic when talking to folks all over the parish, most people are happy.

Sounds like someone got booted when bud took over and wants his job back.

Are you tired of being the night guard at the judge digby plant?

Several people? THE WHOLE DAM PARISH KNOWS!! What is it about these three "AMEIGOS"? Why are they so untouchable? Are they the foundation of New Roads Mafia? Why hasn't Bud busted them or at least one (1) of them? Are they big money backers? Something is up!If Bud doesn't know he needs to RE-Think his Intelligence Big Time! What? Did I say the word Intelligence? He started out with the worse possible Fired List by Paul Raymond's two faced, back stabbing Rejects and hasn't had the balls to face it or do something about it starting with the worse one of all Brett Robillard!

Thank you so sad, if they want to believe I am one person talking to myself, I'll take it as a compliment because I must be upsetting the hell out of someone!! As long as we watch each others backs we will prove our point once Paul Raymond is Sheriff again of Pointe Coupee and the POINT is is the the only MAN for the job in the true meaning of the word SHERIFF.
