There is a slight problem. Watch the news broadcast when Solis spoke about being such a heart broken soldier.He in his own words stated that he was trying to arrest Lopez when the "off-duty" Sergeant came up with out any identification and tried to stop the arrest. Ok military and the first thing in a chain of command is the next rank up. The "Sergeant" is the one that hired you so how did you not know who he was. You disobeyed a direct order. If the Sergeant was wrong then you could have blamed him later and maybe saved your job. As for Joe Tamez we are all tired of seeing his transformation from being an overweight cop to a side burn, scruffy, skeleton, steroid abuser that hides behind the badge. He has informed two different drug dealers of pending raids over the last year. One of these times he was in uniform. He has also been seen in the park with females. Oh he even admitted to Chief Roy Gardner that he had sex with one of the only two patrol females in the Taft police vehicle. Bet you all did not know that. Tamez had it coming. Solis you are still a young officer and yes there is some sympathy but as a soldier you should have known better. Oh but Tamez was your field training officer so it is his fault. Molly Topper you were fired too! So what makes you the authority when it comes to wrongful termination? Well you may be in City Hall again soon but I can also see you behind bars sooner than that when the FBI investigates your insane tactics and ways of doing things. Get off the soap box and get back down to the level of Tamez, Steagell, and Segovia. Oh I think you were already down to Segovia's level but maybe a little lower. Might check the mirror to see if you still have some hair on your head cause it did not look like it on camera. You are bringing the wrong publicity to Taft even if the officers felt they were right. They should have never got involved in city politics but only did their jobs. As for us citizens I fear for the worst to come because as long as we keep rehiring officers like Joe Tamez who was fired like you for refusing a drug test the first time he was here then we have to rehire your fired butt. It is ok the city can't look any worse so lets make it a bigget circus. the clowns are all in place for the entry march so ladies and gentelman, boys and girls, lets see the big show!!!!!! Have a great evening. Post at you soon.

We do need officers but they need to be better trained and have a professional Chief of Police. The city has needed that for years I will agree. The only ones suffering is the citizens. the drugs dealers are loving it while the politics are running crazy. Joe Tamez is involved in the drug dealings of this town so X him all te way. If nothing else is learned by all this hopefully we will get the police in order cause we now have a bigger city to look after.

OK look, I personally do not believe Solis is in the wrong. Lets say the Sgt. was caught doing drugs and Solis is going to arrest him but the Sgt. tells him not to, is this ok for Solis to say ok and walk away? Solis felt the need to arrest the Sgt for interfering with an arrest. If the Sgt. & Lucy would have just obeyed Solis at the time of the arrest things would not have been this bad. If Solis was in the wrong then the Sgt and Lucy could have followed through with a law suit or charges for that arrest. Tamez, I can't say much for him, I don't know him personally, I don't know who he dates or screws, I don't know what his criminal record is...but until we find replacements or proof, we can not fire these cops and leave the city in the condition it is in unless there is full proof. The Sgt did not fire Tamez for drugs or screwing in the cop car, his reason was for insubordination...but why didn't he do this earlier? Funny how Solis & Tamez both get fired the same day. There is a lot more behind this and we will soon find out. I hope that we are able to get Solis back because I feel he did his duty. Why aren't Flo, Rivera, Hinojosa smart enough to leave the bad cops in the hands of Vega to deal with? Why don't they leave the mess to Vega? Why are they trying to get rid of all these cops now? We know Rivera isn't that happy to help Vega out.

I HAVE to agree with you on this. I think Taft just needs to clean house all the way around... City Council Members, Mayors, and PD.

Officer Solis and whoever else should not have set up the area the way they did they allowed the people to drink on the road and dance on the road with open containers of alcohol you do not have a right to close the road when "regular citizens like Bobby Vega" close the road what happens law enforcement comes in and opens it what happened that night they decided to party with them. As far as Tamez i don't think anyone should talk for him did you all know he refused to cooperate with the raid they did this week? And passed by the house like if he was giving them heads up before the raid was going to take place is that right? These officers they let go are and will not be a mistake i support the City Managers decision. Do you think it was ok for Molly Topper to give free water to the people she did and not you unless you were one of them. The Sgt. should have went and shut the party down not the council women to me.

man some people are so stupid!!!!!!!!!!
Tamez is a want to be cop who looks like a damn crack head. HE is crooked and he should feel like scum for what he did during his past. Taft does need officers but well trained officers. I agree with you on that. the problem is taft is to damn political. If tamez was smart he would think back to a time when molly fired him because he would not arrest her SON in law or whatever he is to her that piece of crap cop from san diego thinking he is a state trooper. All this needs to stop give it some time in three years the whole town will finally come all together no matter who the mayor is i didnt vote for vega but he our guy now so lets see how he is.

Now in regard to this matter. I am happy that this officers were fired. Mr.Tamez stated that he was "off duty." Dosen't this guy know right from wrong. Didn't he take an OATH when accepting his civic duty. Couldn't he ask himself. "Man what this people are doing is wrong." I know for a fact. That when some type of medical attention needs to be administered on the highway or road, and no abulance have shown up yet, and say a nurse or doctor passes by. They have to stop and assist, because they took an OATH- to make a promise. This are the kind of officers MOLLY TOPPER wants back.

Ah, I didn't vote for vega either, and he had his little limelight saturday night. Look at the choices he made. So lets see how he is. I think not. To me, this is just round 1 of his failures.

I think the officers really did barracade for saftey reasons. When the Sgt got there he did tell everyone with open containers to go inside (he gave them a chance) there were some people not drinking that stayed outside. After a little while the Sgt went ahead and said for EVERYONE to go inside...but that's when Lucy showed up and things got out of hand. I do not think solis should have been fired, Tamez is a different story if there is proof. I don't get anything free...sure wish I could!! Maybe the Taft citizens should all get a rebate!! If anyone was going to stop the party...yes it should have been the Sgt on his own doing. But he didn't, he just said to take it inside. If anything he should have told Filberto & Lucy to go home before the barracade was broken.

After making Filberto & Lucy go home, the Sgt could have made the call to let the celebration continue only inside or made everyone leave.
