Atascosa constable's challengers cite incumbent's lack of peace officer's license

There are 22 comments on the www.mysanantonio.com story from Jan 20, 2008, titled Atascosa constable's challengers cite incumbent's lack of peace officer's license. In it, www.mysanantonio.com reports that:

Longtime Atascosa County Constable Glenn Riley is running for reelection despite never completing the requirements to obtain a peace officer's license.

Two challengers, both of whom hold valid Texas peace officer's licenses, are running against Riley in the Republican primary March 4. Riley's precinct includes the city of Pleasanton.

Law enforcement is not good ol' boy law enforcement anymore," Head said. "It should be professional, and officers should be held to a higher standard."

they won't , most won't vote at all.. others will only vote as they have always for the one who butters their bread.

most incumbents here aren't even challenged and haven't been in decades.

this story is in the wrong place , it should be in atascosa county pages gonna' go see why it isn't or whether it is .. which ever. Maybe the merge the states with their counties ..dk yet !

Nice to see a local poster .. welcome and post often please it would help our community if more became involved with our current events.

GLEN RILEY GOT'S AN IQ OF A COCKROACH,THAT'S WHY HE CAN'T PASS HIS PEACE OFFICER LICSENSE EXAM.
A 5TH GRADER IS ALOT SMARTER THAN HIM,A 5TH GRADER CAN MAKE A HIGHER SCORE THAN HIM ON THE PEACE OFFICER LICSENSE EXAM.

Glen is a very nice man , he is well spoke and well mannered even tempered and fair as far as constable goes he is more than qualified it is after all an elected position.
There ar lots of rotten maters in this county but mr riley isn't one.
Mr williams on the other hand is a bit questionable.... never challenged seriously and even when he was back in the day the other person ended up dead, many here end up dead... as donna and i enjoy pointing out.
mr riley is not a threat , but threats do exist.

theres more to sheriffing than keeping the jail at capacity and the docket over loaded, how about some prevention , the cure is deadly and costly!
County commishs and law enforcement are as usual good old boys and their winches, the poor remain poor the so called well offs remain the same not even the names change, it's a little too hard to swallow if you have half a mind and a quarter wit odr an honest bone in your body, problem is everyone has a secret or a price and too many are profiting from them..

LOOK GLEN CAN'T EVAN HIT A TARGET AT THE RANGE,ALL HE WANT IS TO WEAR A BADGE,AND GUN AND TO POLISH HIMSELF.BY TEXAS LAW,THE TEXAS LAW ENFORCEMENT COMMISSION NOW HAS IT THAT IF AN ELECTED SHERIFF OR CONSTABLE,OR APPOINTED POLICE CHIEF,HAS TO TAKE THE PEACE OFFICER LICSENSE EXAM,AND THEY HAVE THREE TRIES,AND IF FAILED,THEY WILL BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE BY A DISTRCI JUDGE.
IF YOU MAKE ARREST,AND WRITE TICKETS,AND NOT LICSENSE AS A PEACE OFFICER,THOSE ARREST ARE NO GOOD,AND THE COUNTY CAN BE SUED DRY.
ALL MY DEPUTIES ARE CERTIFIED PEACE OFFICERS,AND SOME JAILERS ARE TAKING THIER PEACE OFFICER COURSE,THE CONSTABLE'S AT THE OTHER PRECINCTS HAD THE EFFORT TO TAKE THE BASIC PEACE OFFICER COURSE,GLEN RILEY DID'NT HAD NO EFFORT OR DESIRE TO TAKE THE BASIC PEACE OFFICER COURSE.
IF YOU WANT TO BE A PEACE OFFICER IN TEXAS,TAKE THE COURSE,DON'T BE FAKE.
I YOUR GLEN RILEY'S FRIEND,DEAL WITH IT.

first lets pretend you are actually Mr Williams , which if you are you know me give me a call and we will discuss this in a real civil matter but as I'm certain beyond all doubt that you are in fact not he I'm certain I'll not receive that call .
Regarding MR Riley I am not his friend I am a registered voter , no matter whether he hit a target or a lick in his life , your post was rude the man has retreated and with a whimper.
Mayhaps you would enjoy seeing him with a gun in his mouth , like so many before him or possibly like even more a noose round his neck....
I am really tired of ppl and their double standards.. it's not do as i say it's do as i do I expect my elected officials to behave like civil human beings, Atascosa county has let the gobc fall completely apart , they cannot control their dogs and have become an embarrassment to all who reside here.. no wonder we are no more than a dumping ground and brothel to the rest of the state! I assure you that this post and yourself will be reported for impersonating someone , anyone as per the TOS and pulled from the site altogether, mr williams may seek other ramifications,impersonating a law officer an elected official can't say , do know after having held numerous conversations with him , you aren't he. He doesn't really piddle much, gossip and chatter aren't high on his agenda. He may be livin large but he is as neat as a starched sunday suit anytime.
Now if infact we find you are my fine sheriff.. i'd like a job over there , don't want or need to carry a gun, i'm much better suited to the informant and fact verifying position. I can smell a liar almost as fast as i can smell a cop or doobie.. pun intended.. and hint hint , the sheriff here wouldn't laff. He'd toss my in the clink quick fast and in a hurry for the first crime he could pin on me, say if i were to so much as spit on a sidewalk .. oh wait that was the deputy sheriff.. mr soward. He sure was sexy saying that .. wonder if he knew?? lol
oh and btw i still think you're someone other than any type of actual law enforcement, not even a po, mabe one of the fellas above, kicked rex in the nads in 3rd grade, had a two day courtship with jeff in the 6th or 7th.. so if you're either of them again you will know who i am call me and we can quit sullying the good name of atascosa county.

You go outnleftfield! I love your attitude!(be careful) I would like to talk to you sometime. I have some questions for you. As for the person posting...I do not believe it is Sheriff Williams. He is alot more professional than that. If you want to impersonate him, you are gonna have to do better than that with your spelling and overall language!

well you have some meth labs to clean up.
You wouldn't win, we hicks don't give a hoot or a holler about your masters, we care about honesty and integrity, now if you would like to apply for a slot in the school board your master might help ya around here but why you wouldn't win is that you obviously aren't GOBC or you wouldn't be posting.

Hey Gary Smith, I worked with you at BCSO when you were a CPL. I remember when you were always screwing up because you are a looser, and everybody at BCSO hated you cause you screwed everything up for everybody else, by falling asleep in the units when the brass were maqking their rounds. And everybody knew that you always lied. Why are talking trash when you have no reason too. You got fired at BCSO and you work at La Coste PD! Thats a joke.
